If This Were a Conservative Country
Various pundits keep quoting surveys that they say show that a majority of Americans are conservative in their political and societal beliefs.
If this were a conservative country, casual sex and gratuitous violence would not be glorified on television and the movies, and you would not hear “ass”, “son-of-a-bitch”, “bastard” and a thinly disguised “f**k you” on television every night.
If this were a conservative country, we would have drilled for oil off our coasts, in ANWR and on other federal lands, gasoline would sell for $1.00 a gallon, we wouldn’t buy any oil from the Arabs nor care what they did to one another, the cost of living would be way down and the value of the dollar way up.
If this were a conservative country, an idiot movie star like Mel Gibson would be finished after he hurled obscenities at Jewish-Americans, and everyone would laugh when Alec Baldwin or Michael Moore opened their mouths.
If this were a conservative country, there would be no federal Department of Education, local boards would run their schools to educate children who would learn some math and history instead of how to use condoms and why their country is in the wrong about everything imaginable; and colleges would be educating students instead of turning out anti-American activists and community organizers. We would all have a good laugh at the nonsense Sandra Fluke spews.
If this were a conservative country, loan officers in banks would not have been forced to hand out mortgage loans to deadbeats and speculators who had no credit or terrible credit. Age-old methods of evaluating ability to pay would have continued to be combined with down payments and reasonable appraisals of housing values, while bankers would not have had to figure out ways to protect their depositors and stockholders from the inevitable crash which has taken us all down.
If this were a conservative country, an inept and inexperienced manager with a hidden history and a hidden agenda would not now be imposing his radical socialism on this country, nor would the Constitution that has protected us for more than 230 years be under assault from his buyout methods and his attacks on religious freedom.
