Conservative movement is dead

I hereby officially pronounce the conservative movement dead.
May it rest in peace.
It was killed by its faith in men, not principles – men like George W. Bush.
The appointments of John Roberts as chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court and Harriet Miers as associate justice serve as the epitaphs for the political movement.
But even before these betrayals, conservatism was on life support.
It could not have survived the irresponsible spending by the Republican Congress, approved by the president during the last five years.
The conservative movement, in the best of times, represented a defensive effort to slow the trend toward unconstitutional, unlimited, centralized, Washington-based government.
Today, it represents, at best, only the hope of a slightly slower trend toward socialism and tyranny.
Let me state this plainly, as I do in my new updated, paperback edition of "Taking America Back": If Republicans filled every seat in the U.S. Congress and maintained control of the presidency, unconstitutional government would continue in Washington unchecked.
The confirmation of that fact came last week when former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay explained there was absolutely no place to cut the bloated federal budget. He said Republicans had done such a good job reining in government spending over the last decade, there was no fat left.
For those who still revere and love the U.S. Constitution, freedom and the goal of self-government, the death of the conservative movement might seem like a bad thing. I would submit to you it may be a necessary development to restoring the American Dream.
As long as the totality of political alternatives for the American people are represented by the Republicans and Democrats, conservatives and liberals, the drift away from the unique founding principles of American sovereignty and liberty will inevitably continue.
Quite frankly, it's time for some new creative thinking among Americans who still value what made America great.
No amount of defensive wrangling will be enough to preserve or restore our free republic.
It's time to think outside the box. It's time to exercise some courage and boldness. It's time to realize no war is won fighting defensively – trying in vain to hold on to old turf with no attempt to win new turf. It's time for freedom-lovers to reframe their political objectives. It's time to set goals for expanding liberty and morality, not just beating back relentless attempts to rob us of them.
Are you looking for new strategies, new tactics? Do you see that conservatism has only lost ground for the last 17 years? Do you understand we need to do more than work to elect politicians to represent us in Washington? Do you agree that the corruption of our system now runs too deep?
This may sound alarmist to some: But, at this point in history, Americans are less free than we were under the Crown of England.
Do any of us have the courage and convictions of our Founders? How many of us are willing to risk our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor for the cause of freedom today?
That is my challenge to you today.
We can complain about out-of-control government for the rest of our lives. We can continue to watch our liberty slip away. We can leave our children and grandchildren a society far worse off than the one which we inherited from our parents and grandparents. Or we stand up to the tyranny, get organized, set goals for expanding freedom, reclaiming ground robbed from us and set about rebuilding that shining city on a hill.
And I'm sad to say
You're on your way,
Won't be back
With that name today.
Your 'count is down,
The kitties spinnin' around,
We got to see a little troll
Get zot-ted down.
OOF, a premature hesdeadjim. Don't they make pills for the that?
"I am sad to say I agree with every word of this article."
Ovine Salsa! (Sheep Dip)
In the hope that Free Republic may someday reach as many as World Net Daily does, I will raid the piggy bank and send money because Jim Rob is forging a valuable tool against the Communism Lite crowd.
Rather than futilly critique Farah, shouldn't the FReeper Conservatives recognize reality when we hear it?
Just one small (not really small at all) example - SCOTUS appointments.
Farah's article is all too valid.
Does that mean you are going to be passing out the red and yellow flags soon, comrade?
Good to hear from you again , we all thought you were dead. We are happy to discover that only your brain is still dead,just as it has always been.
You really do need to invent a new accent, if you are ever going to fool us again.
Any other highly unoriginal thoughts you'd care to burden us with?
Each it and eye, Lou Zar.
"But he is not dead yet. The kitties have not welcomed him yet."
Not yet, you are right. But DemoCat just woke up, walked over to his tree trunk scratching post, and sharpened his claws.
I think they are blue.
Good, kitties get the troll.
I am happy to say I don't agree with much in this article.
As fool proof spell checkers are invented, evolution will evolve better fools. ListwanFarmer comes to mind as an example.
ha ha ha haaaa - this was worth the price of admission! Thank you!
Thank you - I was waiting for the kitties.
Yes, we conservatives aren't dead; we just aren't moving much of late.
And haint it hylarious.
The good thing is that now we can "his dead" to the Freeper lexicon.
In the days and weeks ahead, a series of articles is going to presented on FreeRepublic that details this solution and how the members of FreeRepublic may be able to provide the stimulus needed that could lead to the implementation of this program. We can take our country back, stay tuned.
Well, I certainly agree with that.
Where's the shower?
His dead, you moroon.
This is no newbie, a repeatee maybe. He/she comes and trolls now and then, but always turns out to be the big catch of the day.
His dad, gin!
Your first post on Free Republic is this?
Me thinks you DU troll are.
Thanks. I am out of my trance now.
What exactly is he proposing? What a crackpot.

I am sad to say that you agree with everything in the article.
The answer of the "Conservative Movement" is the "World Net Daily" is dead.
"The good thing is that now we can "his dead" to the Freeper lexicon."
;D! Same thoughts here, "series his dead" for sure!
When his wake?
"Not New ?"
Nope, just a worn out and long ago discarded recap,that comes back now and then.
Only the spelling and feigned accent in the title, gives him/her away this time, likely on purpose. Probably meant to test our comprehension or to insult our intelligence.
Trolls come, trolls go-sometime they come back.
You've been here before.
You know the drill.
Turn around, put your hands on the wall and spread your feet.
agreed! but they must choose new name if old one is banned know they come back again and again maybe next time I'll notice the spelling and feigned accent in the title, , first thing I do is check the home page of when they signed up
Wow, yet another DUmb troll post. Yawn.
but all the kitties are so cute
