CHANGE........IS IT GOOD?
Rudy Giuliani said something yesterday that I thought was quite profound regarding the atmosphere if change. People think the change mood is anti-Bush and I would agree that it is to most people. However change is not always good. That is why I am CONSERVATIVE. I want to CONSERVE some old-fashioned values that I think are important to our society. There is Bush fatigue. But there is also Washington fatigue and that includes the Senate and the House. If the change you seek is higher taxes and a less aggressive stand against terrorism than I guess change is what you want. Social agenda can be argued all day long. But to me change is not always good. Progressives in America to me are oppressors with their philosophy of elitism and low expectations. So yes I fight change. Perhaps I do in my own life as well. What is true and right will always be so. Public opinion changing is not truth it is only persuasion. Just because abortion is pushed as choice doesn't make abortion morally right even if public opinion adopts the concept as acceptable. Pornography in all forms is a societal ill regardless of the public opinion that it is necessary to preserve free speech. The opinions we adopt by rationale ring true only until the consequence shows its ugly head. So be careful what you wish for you may just get it............and this is true in life and politics!!
