Why We Should All Be Conservative Now

"It’s very ironic to me that two of the cultures I run around in vote Democratic when they run to the polling box. Wall Street is loaded with Democrats and I don’t know if it’s because they feel so much guilt from ripping off their customers or if they think they can extract money out of government through making it larger.

Silicon Valley and the environs that seek to replicate it are similar. Ironically, the entrepreneurial culture is one that is agnostic when it comes to gender, race, sexual orientation and all the other things the Democratic party seeks to divide us by. Entrepreneurs are merit based. Build a great product, you’ll get some money to fund it, and customers don’t care how many tattoos you have if it works.

I have said that in cities, and the cultures that I run in, it’s much easier to be gay than a conservative. I am not the only one. In the Weekend Interview, Harvey Mansfield makes my point and expounds on it. He also adds some tips on how conservatives should present their case, and think about the base precepts of where it comes from. The whole interview is a stimulating read for conservatives and liberals alike. Entitled, The Crisis of American Self Government, he hits many nails on the head.


Mansfield correctly points out, “The threat to self-government is clear. “The American founders wanted people to live under the Constitution,” Mr. Mansfield says. “But the progressives want the Constitution to live under the American people.”

The Constitution just gets in the way of the prosperity that would result from giving liberals absolute power over our lives.
