Issues with Defining Conservatism in Differing Ways

Reader comment on item: Welcome, Conservatives, to Pariah Status
in response to reader comment: what is a conservative

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Dec 29, 2021 at 12:43

Coming up on a year after the Democratic Progressive agenda pushed out the previous and one of the more successful periods of American prosperity, the politcal jealousies that are the Democratic Socialists' badge of disenfranchising the freedoms of a republican society have had nearly a year to prove why the Soviet Union was historically set as a failure in terms of how long empires may dominate; and those failures are now plain to see and their proponents in Congress and the Administration are blind in their own pride of failure.
Make no mistake, conservatism has its own issues of selfish applications of endeavor and in mnay respects the conservatist approach to social issues has its own set of problems; but entrenching in poverty is not one of them. The current power elitism that has America by the throat does not bode well in the face of the losses in the internatinal commnuity; and the depletion of the middle class that draws revelry in glee from the leadership of the other superpowers that used (ironically) capitalism to sap the American economy is in jeopardy of irrecoverable status for at least a generation, if not more. Even the most reserved optomistic view of how America might survive is cluttered with democratic progressive intransigence waiting in the wings of the halls of greater learning, salivating at the chance to see how much worse they can make it. 2022 is waiting to see how conservatism will attempt its recovery in the Republican sector of the society. For how sadly would it be taken, that in the face of the disgraced democratic perspective that is fleeing the scene of the crime, they still could not make the best of the change that is ncecssary and America flounders to the end.
