A TON Of Quotes By And About Conservatism

WELCOME BACK!

We've been on a short hiatus, concentrating on our daily posts at our Facebook Page.

Due to the demands of that daily posting we've decided to share just one more post for now as we concentrate our efforts on Facebook - at least until the 2016 Election.

This post is a large collection of pre-Election quotes from prominent Conservatives to show the skeptical that Conservatism is iniquitous and malignant and that Conservatives are by definition mean, crazy, as the sheer volume of these quotes. reveals..although we should requote the maxim: "The Republican Party is made up of a few smart people and a whole lot of stupid ones."

In the meantime, be sure to visit our Facebook Page each and every day for stories, opeds, 'toons, and memes that we hope will inform, educate, and entertain you at:

Infowars broke the story and they knew they had been found out.” – Alabama Republican State Rep. Stella Tremblay, on Glenn Beck’s Facebook page

Conservative followers come from every part of the country and include every demographic you can imagine. And their leaders have much to contribute to our democratic government too...


...and no one is more faithful to the Conservative "movement" than the people who follow the beliefs of great leaders who have since passed away.


These brave souls are victims of ridicule, if not outright laughter and disgust by the Other Side, as they try to follow the dictates of their leaders - especially during election years.


So what do the leaders teach their faithful followers? Well, first they teach them to help those who are less fortunate than they are...


...and they teach their True Believers other things, like promoting the general welfare...


...paying attention to what smarter people tell them...


...working on intelligent legislation that benefits ALL of the People...


...rooting out the terrorists...


...protecting the right for EVERYONE to bear arms...


...answering the tough questions...


...while supporting all good Conservative followers...


...playing by the rules...


...promoting fair employment practices...


...understanding issues like Law and Order...


...promoting power to the People...


...standing up to the enemy...


...supporting our wounded warriors...


...confronting the important issues head-on...


...listening to the Job Creators' plans for us...


...fighting excessive government regulation...


...understanding the political process...


...spreading the Lord's word...


...supporting the intelligence community...


...privatizing all those wasteful government programs...


...investigating subversive elements...


...protecting our environment...


...because God would want it that way...


...promoting female candidates...


...turning out in the Primaries...


...heeding the needs of the constituents...


...understanding practical politics...


...knowing your party's history...


...spending the taxpayers' money wisely...


...protecting the unborn...


...identifying with multiculturism...


...proclaiming that ALL lives matter...


...and knowing your fellow Conservatives!


So have you got all that? Well then - go out and vote Republican!


********************

Once you understand the answer to this question, you finally understand what the Conservative "movement" is all about...stealing from the poor and the middle class and giving to the rich.

Nothing more and nothing less, because all the rest of it is to attract the mean and stupid to their side.

And from Wikipedia we get this interesting description of Organized Crime
"Organized crime is a category of transnational, national, or local groupings of highly centralized enterprises run by criminals who intend to engage in illegal activity, most commonly for money and profit. Some criminal organizations, such as terrorist groups, are politically motivated.

When "politically motivated" criminal cartels are killing the People and setting the world on fire what's the cure? To...

...criminalize Conservatism!
