It is really spring! That’s right. It is sunny and warm. It is about time.
Sunday we saw snowflakes blowing around with temperatures in the low 30s. Today it’s in the mid 70s. Amazing what two days can do.
We came out of the temple tonight and the air was pleasant and warm. Yes, it is really spring. Let’s hope it is here to stay for a while.
Why Being a Republican Doesn’t Make You a Conservative
Okay, I have to state this. I was watching a rather childish argument between to “Republicans” and the finger pointing was at “conservatives” (where it should have been at Republicans… not conservatives.)
A conservative (politically) is one who holds fast to time-honored traditions. They are less likely to accept change for the sake of change. The opposite of conservative is radical.
So, based on some of the things being argued about, here are two: Extramarital affairs are NOT conservative values, and drug legalization is not a conservative value.
Taking that to the other side, liberalism is not humanitarianism. It is the doctrine of change.
Liberals like to change things. Conservatives like to keep time-honored traditions. A liberal who likes to take change to the extreme is a radical. Either one (liberal or conservative) who wants to force behavior is an authoritarian. An extreme authoritarian is a totalitarian.
Why is that so hard for some people to understand?
