Proudly Conservative

after looking at stupid political arguments on Tumblr, felt like making these.

This gif set pleases me.

The state will set you free.

What conservatives and libertarians don’t understand is that freedom doesn’t just mean being left alone. How free is the homeless man who is left alone to fend for himself? He’s not free to pursue his goals and interests. In some ways, freedom requires being left alone, but in other ways, you need help to be free. For example, part of freedom is being able to have sex with whoever you want. But you can’t do that unless you have contraception and protection from diseases. Some people don’t have access to them. They’re not free to do everything they want to do.

People can’t be free to live up to their potential without the state. How could people live up to their potential without public education and resources like libraries and city-sponsored extracurricular programs for kids? That’s just one more example. People can’t do everything they have the ability to do, and everything that would make them happy, without some assistance from the state.

I am starting to wonder if this is a troll blog, but either way it is entertaining. Lets break it down yet again.

How free is a homeless man left completely left alone? Completely, he is completely free. 

I do not have a nice car, I would like one, you could say it is an interest of mine, or a goal. Am I therefore not free to have a nice car? Do I deserve one to be truly free?

Freedom does not include the right to have sex with anyone you want, that is called rape. I jest, I know that is not what you meant.

But I do have some great news for you! You can have sex without contraception and protection from diseases! It is possible! The dream is real! It is entirely possible to have sex with nothing but yourself and a consenting partner, you just have to deal with the possibility of a child…or chlamydia.

Of course you aren’t free to do anything you want to, that’s why people work. I think you confuse freedom with money, they are entirely separate.

"How could people live up to their potential without public education and resources like libraries and city-sponsored extracurricular programs for kids?"

Oh geez, I don’t know. Same way they did for thousands of years? private schools? Homeschooling? Bookstores? Determination? Friends and family?  You realize city-sponsored means you sponsored right? The state is not some magical entity pulling money from where the sun don’t shine. (Well they are but that’s a whole other thing).  The state is a great solution if you like your solutions to be cold,wasteful, and inefficient.

I think the crucial issue here is that this person lacks even the most basic understanding of the word “freedom”. What she really means is freedom from responsibility and consequence. Her definition of freedom is the exact opposite of freedom. 

You maybe asking yourself, proudlyconservative, why re-blog this, its a little unfair is it not? because folks, this attitude is growing in our culture, and it will have disastrous results.

Gun control is one way the state will set us free. It will set us free from violence, from crime, from fear of armed robbers breaking into our homes, from fear that one day we’ll hear that a loved one was killed in a shooting.

What the fuck did I just read?

LOL

Mark Steyn muses over the BLM debacle, the erosion of previously lauded morals, Friedrich Hayek, and more. Great read as always from Steyn.

George Will nails why liberals play the race card so often.

it always cracks me up when 5 white people talk about “Race and politics”

Is it funny because white people are not allowed to talk about race and politics?  How dark exactly does your skin need to be to be granted the privilege of talking about race in America?  Just curious…

Its almost as if they are implying skin color determines the validity of a person’s thoughts and ideas….hmmmm?

Think about it

The entire concept of social security is extremely offensive to any responsible person.

Hey you aren’t smart enough to save for retirement, so here is what we are going to do, we will take some money while you work for your entire life, admittedly we are going to spend it, and you are going to lose some of it so we can pay bureaucrats and other wasteful things, and when and if you reach 65, and if we manage to replace the money, you can have what is left back, in small scheduled payments. You are welcome.

Thank you, capitalism.

How do you propose Miss McMillan eat or clothe herself until such time as capitalism may be abolished?
Of all criticisms of anti-capitalism, I find this one to be the most flimsy and juvenile.

The communist bookstore near where I live is 100% NON PROFIT so just wanna mention that.


"A communist non-profit bookstore?"  Are you talking about the library? 
So, how does a non-profit store even work?  If they accidentally go over operating margin, do they burn the money?  I’m just curious how these nutjobs operate.

How do you propose Miss McMillan eat or clothe herself until such time as capitalism may be abolished?

I think the real question is, “if capitalism was ever theoretically ‘abolished,’ how would anyone eat or clothe themselves?”  The answer is “they couldn’t.”  I don’t think totalitarian governments typically replace your tattered coolie hat and feed you extra rice balls for writing anti-capitalist books.
Ah, but what do I know?  I’m just your run of the mill capitalist pig.

I think some of these people believe “non-profit” means that there isn’t a big pile of extra money sitting in the back room. It really depends on how you define profit. Is this bookstore selling books at wholesale prices while the employees work on a volunteer basis? Or does the bookstore mark up prices to cover expenses and salaries?  In the case of the latter, this leaves all sorts of wiggle room for the owners to “profit”. Thats why there are plenty of people who have gotten very wealthy running “non-profit” organizations.In addition, if this “non-profit” book is such a service to the community, its a shame they don’t make a profit or else they could open some new locations and perform an even greater service…quite the catch-22.

This is absolutely perfect. P.S. I reached 21,000 followers a couple days ago and I wanted to thank all of you! You rock!


Apparently from what I have heard from several sources, you can exempt yourself by declaring you have a “hardship” which exempts you from having to buy insurance and paying the fine and you don’t even have to explain.  Haven’t had time to look into it myself but if this is the case, I have a hardship and his name is Barack Hussein Obama.

Follow the three R’s: Respect for self, 
respect for others 
and responsibility for all your actions. That's the funny part you have zero respect for people that aren't exactly like you. You are a bigoted homophobic hate filled woman. You will either rot in your so called hell or be reincarnated into some puny bug that can be crushed with one little step. You're disgusting!
