Conservative first, then a Republican is how I have always identified myself. In all fairness, I have always registered as a Republican since my 18th birthday in 1988. With great pride, I voted for George H. W. Bush twice. But before you quit reading any further, I will not vote for candidates for any public office that do not share my conservative values. While this is something I have always shared in private with friends and family, this is the first time I have shared this publicly.
Within our nation we have witnesses the emergence of American fascism. It is prevalent within American politics, the mainstream media, and even within formal education. What was once considered every American’s right to debate and disagree with the government, social trends, and even just each other is no longer remotely considered as a natural right. All it takes is a study of America’s founding to understand how important this was considered. Throughout America’s history, one of the constant features of the American people is a history of disagreement, dissention, and discussion about the differing opinions – also commonly referred to as the natural right to exercise individual freedom of conscience.
