The truest definition of a conservative person is one who desires to preserve the existing social conditions and to resist changing to something different. Given that this is true, in the West, conservatives are the best friends Liberals have inasmuch as, under present conditions, Liberals are free to speak their minds without limit.
Given that the condition of being “liberal” is typified by the desire to change from present norms to something new and different, that the freedom to speak and write whatever one wishes would be done away with for everyone, Liberals and Conservatives alike. This may be observed in the audacious and blatant moves by Liberals in power in the United States who have acted with hostility against conservative organizations by directing the IRS to harass them, and with President Baraq Husein U-bama’s abusing the privilege of his position to attack The Drudge Report with comments to the effect that it is interfering with “what we’re trying to do.”
If “what we’re trying to do” includes the censorship (or worse, could you please be more explicit?) of people who disagree with “what [you’re] trying to do,” the Liberals need to thank Mr. Drudge and every Conservative they know for preserving their very right to free speech and a free press and Internet. Because “what [you’re] trying to do” looks very much like “We want to shut you up!” – in any way we have to.
Unless Liberals really don’t like having such freedoms. If that’s the case, you’re free to give them up, but please don’t expect Conservatives to give up ours, too. That’s us, fighting to preserve your freedoms so that we can keep ours.
Oh, by the way: You’re welcome!
