Why I am a Conservative

Being a female conservative definitely has its perks but it’s not easy. I am outnumbered greatly at my college campus and my job, but here are just a few reasons why I’m a conservative

  1. I believe in capitalism. The United States was founded as a capitalist nation. Capitalism is freedom. According to Phil Valentine “Anyone who is anticapitalist is, by definition,¬† anti-American. One cannot be simultaneously free and dependent on the government”
  2. I believe in God.
  3. I believe in the American dream. Living a well-off life because of hard work. Being able to be successful because of working hard. Take it from Bill Cosby, when he was asked if had been lucky his response was “Yeah, the harder I work, the luckier I get”
  4. I believe that entrepreneurs deserve to keep every penny they make because they worked hard for it. I believe that entrepreneurs are the reason for the growing economy. They provide opportunities for other people as well as themselves.
  5. I believe in life. I believe that life starts at conception. I believe that abortion is murder. I believe that EVERYONE’s life is valuable.
  6. I believe in the Second Amendment. I believe that guns save lives. An armed zone is a safe zone.
  7. I believe that political correctness is ruining this country. According to Dr. Ben Carson “Political Correctness has thrown a veil of silence over our important discussions.” or “It’s time to grow up and start thinking about what you can fo to contribute to society’s well-being instead of choosing to be a victim of speech..”
  8. I believe that every American should know America’s history, without it, you won’t be able to recognize the way this country is straying away.
  9. I believe in immigration, but not illegal immigration. Illegal immigrants take advantage of our jobs, healthcare, education and so much more.
  10. I believe in the military and war. The military is what protects this country. War is what gave us freedom.
  11. I believe that things aren’t’ “free” someone is paying for it, WE are paying for it through taxes.
  12. I believe in a fair tax rate. I think the Founding Fathers would be appalled with how greedy this country is. “What if the top 10 percent of wage earners were no longer there? Two-thirds of the tax revenue would cease to exist.” -Phil Valentine
  13. I believe that government should be extremely limited. We have allowed the government to become so big that it has taken control of all our lives. The government gets to tell us where we can and can’t pray, the government has even banned Christmas Trees from some public buildings all because of a false statement “the separation of church and state” which isn’t even in the Constitution! The government has found ways to control every aspect of our lives, even if it’s based on lies.
  14. I believe that health care should remain privatized
  15. I believe in the Constitution

Blue Lives Matter

As I am laying in bed tonight my heart is very heavy. My heart is not only heavy for the Dallas police officers or Alton Sterling but ANYONE who has had their life taken. Death is not justifiable. Especially the live’s that were taken these past couple of days.

My heart breaks for the innocent Dallas police officers who were killed Thursday night. Killed while DEFENDING and PROTECTING the lives of the protestors who were protesting against them! Police officers who risk their lives every single day to protect the people and community they care about. Police officers who care deeply about this country, so much that their career is protecting it. Police officers DO NOT put your lives in danger and how dare anyone say that, white or black! Police officers are PROTECTING you. They are not racist. They do not want to harm anyone. Having the mindset that police are putting lives in danger is ignorant. No death is justifiable but if you COMPLY and LISTEN to what your authority asks¬† you, your life will not be harmed. If you do not perform criminal acts or have criminal intent, your life will not be harmed. If everyone would just OBEY the law and OBEY what police officers ask of them, YOUR LIFE WILL NOT BE HARMED. Police officers are human beings too, they get scared too. If you disobey them, resist arrest, threaten their safety, etc, they will act in a forceful way that protects themselves and their communities. They are human beings, they get scared and react but the violence would stop if everyone would comply with the law! This does not justify anyone’s death but it may help give an understanding to those who need it. Of course, there are a few police officers who may have bad intentions but most police officers just want to protect their community.

Instead of blaming a certain race or career lets clean up our act! Be law abiding citizens! Let’s come together as a country no matter what race you are. Let’s stop the violence and the hatred. Of course, it’s not as simple as just saying it but let’s get rid of the hashtags, having a hashtag that singles out a race isn’t going to help us come together. It’s going to divide us. Stop making it black against white. We are AMERICANS! Stop making social media the platform for all movements. Stop letting the media manipulate you! Start being informed before you go off on social media. Let’s have intelligent conversations with each other, not hateful arguments. Have an open mindset! Stop calling each other names! Treat each other the way you would want to be treated, but most of all be law abiding citizens.

God bless America

 

 

 

Ben Carson For President

I have had the pleasure of reading and re-reading Ben Carson’s book “One Nation.” If you haven’t read his book, you should. It’s absolutely life changing. The knowledge Ben Carson has is so invigorating. Everyone could benefit from reading his book. His book is setup in 2 parts, the first part is “The Cause of Disunity and Decline” and the second part of the book is “Solutions.”

The book starts out with my favorite part, the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast. Ben Carson was asked to speak at this event. Some of the organizers were afraid that Carson’s speech might be offensive so they asked him to write his speech down and send it to them so they could read over it. Carson denied that request, but he was still able to speak. If you haven’t watched his speech on youtube you should. It’s so good. He recited a few bible verses and then the rest of his speech he talked how American can progress and become a better Country. His speech was pretty flawless. Minutes after his speech he received a call from some of the organizers saying that the White House was upset and wanted him to call the president and apologize.. Are you kidding me…

Now before I go on, I’ll tell you a little bit about Ben Carson. He was born in Detroit, Michigan. He lived in poverty for some of his childhood and his parents got divorced when he was young. Carson went on to graduate from Yale University and Michigan Medical School. He then became the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at John Hopkins Hospital. He is a very very intelligent man, and his life wasn’t easy.

In the first chapter of the book, Carson begins talking about changing the future and he talks about a subject that he has so much passion for.. Political Correctness. One of my biggest pet peeves is not being able to have an intelligent conversation with someone without them getting easily offended. Carson spends a whole chapter talking about political correctness and hypersensitivity. This is one of my favorite chapters because I love having debates and intelligent conversations with people but nowadays it’s extremely hard to have controversial conversations without someone getting offended but the thing is we need to have these conversations America!

“Political Correctness has thrown a veil of silence over our important discussions.” Couldn’t have said it better, Ben. But a quote I like even more than that one is, “it’s time to grow up and start thinking about what you can do to contribute to society’s well being instead of choosing to be a victim of speech…”

His next chapter that I thoroughly enjoyed was “Ignorance and Forgiveness.” A quote that really spoke to me from this chapter was “Ignorance, whether it takes the form of revisionism or laziness, can hurt our nation too. If we don’t know our true national history, we won’t be able to recognize the way in which America is drifting.” He then goes on to explain America’s history. He also goes on to explain how this country has completely forgotten our Christian heritage. “Some historical revisionists have also attempted to diminish the role of God and religion in our nation’s past.” The passion he has when he talks about his faith and religion and dedication to God is exactly what we need. We need to go back to a time when saying a prayer in public schools was okay, and saying the Pledge of Allegiance proudly.

I could go on and on and on but then this post would be about 10 pages long if I do that so I’m going to stop right there. I touched on some subjects that I’m very passionate about but his book continues to go through bigotry, government control, national debt and more. Then the book goes into the second part which is about how we, the American people, can help improve this country. Ben Carson was my favorite presidential candidate because of his intelligence and passion for God. That is exactly what this country needed.
