Liberals oppose Constitution, Declaration of Independence

There are several major differences between conservatives and liberals (all Democrats may not fit the liberal mold, nor all Republicans the conservative mold).

Here are some of the most notable differences: Liberals want a large federal government and to do away with our Constitution. Conservatives want a small federal government as directed by our Constitution.

Liberals want to make/keep people dependent on the federal government while conservatives want to help all people to become self-sufficient.

Liberals believe America should not develop our own energy, yet complain when conservatives suggest drilling for petroleum. Liberals want “clean energy” but never tell how much the infrastructure will cost or where all the windmills/sun collectors will be placed.

Liberals will not explain where our asphalt, tires, fertilizers, and thousands of other products we get from petroleum will be made.

Liberals support “a woman’s right to choose.” Notice they always use an incomplete sentence because they cannot bring themselves to say “to kill her unborn child.”

In the Declaration of Independence our Founding Fathers specified three unalienable rights: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Every time our elected officials vote to abort a child they are going against the very oath of office they have taken; yet that oath means nothing to them.

I can go on, but the point is made that liberals are more prone to hurt America and Americans than conservatives.
