Every news outlet is filled with post-election analysis about how demographics are turning against conservatives. The liberals, the libertarians, and the moderates are all proclaiming, yet again, how we conservatives must moderate our position on some issue or another. Well, we have a different take on this.
Why must we, the conservatives, always be the responsible ones, the adults of the electorate? After all, if the economy falters and the government runs out of money, who is hurt more? We do not rely on government money and programs.
Look at what happened in the state of Wisconsin two years ago. In the midst of the economic downturn, we elected Scott Walker; he reduced the size of government and the power of the public sector unions. Even in liberal states, like NY and CA, similar austerity measures have been taken. What did we, as conservatives, lose? Not much.
So, this is our answer to the democrats who claim that we should compromise on raising taxes and growing government, the moderates who say that we need to compromise on abortion and amnesty, and the libertarians who proclaim that we must compromise on gay marriage and legalization: “Go ahead, make our day!”
If the economic collapse happens and no welfare checks are issued, you democrats will see the riots in your neighborhoods. If the state runs out of money, you moderates will have less government power to wield. If the liberals force tax increases, it will hit you rich libertarians and homosexuals the hardest.
Every election, each of you attempts to hold a gun to us conservatives and extract a ransom. We are tired of hearing it. We are not afraid. So, go ahead and pull that trigger. We dare you!
With the fiscal cliff on the horizon, we are telling you all now that you had better join us, the conservatives, on taxes, immigration, abortion, marriage, drug policy and reducing the size of government. Join us or perish!
