We’ve got nowhere else to go

October 19th, 2008

You often hear liberals say they’ll go to Canada if they lose a particular election.

But you’ve never heard a conservative say something similar.

That’s because there are plenty of countries that are already like what the Left wants America to be.

Canada, discount cialis here England, viagra France, and Sweden already have socialized medicine, more controls on “offensive speech”, and much stricter gun control. They are the role models for what liberals want to accomplish in America.

But there are no other countries that are like the America that Conservatives want to keep. No other country with more social mobility. No other country with more business opportunity. No other country with more freedom.

The bad news for conservatives is they have no place else to go.

The worst news for liberals is that conservatives aren’t going anywhere.

    Technically, I’m a modified libertarian not a conservative, but the point holds true. ;)

    Since when are Repbulicans for more freedoms. They want control as much as anyone, just different overlords.

    Eh, I don’t necessarily want stricter gun control, but I do support smarter gun control.

    I’m actually all in favor of smarter gun control. I think all gun owners should be licensed, like driving a car.

    (But, like with a driver’s license, I think anyone who takes a course and passes a written exam and a practical exam should be licensed to carry a weapon concealed anywhere in the United States.)

    And I’d like to see people held accountable for accidental deaths caused with their firearms.

    (If you leave a gun where a kid can find it and that kid kills himself or someone else, I think you should go to jail.)
