America's founders believed in limited government, the rule of law, the right to own property, the right to live by the dictates of their own conscience and freedom on speech. These are all considered foundational conservative principles. These conservative principles have been the foundation for the most successful culture the world has ever known.
The left believes in governmental control of all aspects of our lives, and for over two centuries has been working to that end. History that is incontestable has shown for the last 125 years the left has been working to eliminate those rights in America, and replace those values with a system that's filled humanity with tyranny, misery, suffering, disease, poverty and early death.
So why do people who live and believe in conservative values fail to support people on the right who really do support the concept of individual rights, versus those on the left who don't? Rich Kozlovich
