CONSERVATIVES: Do you think that the ideology of liberalism should be banned out of US politics?

Asked by: sophiejohnson024
  • Liberals destroy this country and conservatism is the only ideology to fit into the US in order to make this country better.

    Conservatism is the only ideology that can make the US function. Liberalism will destroy the US. If liberalism was banned out of US politics, then this country will work again. The economy, healthcare system, and social values are down because of liberalism. All we need to do is ban the things that liberalism has done to this country and fit conservative values.

  • Liberals destroy things

    Liberals destroy things, like a safe country, Allowing Illegal immigration is both a drain on the economy and a safety issue. The same applies to bringing in 500000 Muslims who according to their dogma, are diabolically opposed to our way of life, we don't know who they are or anything about them, so why?

  • Not banned, but ignored.

    Todays liberals are not the same political animal as those who fought for civil rights years ago. It used to be about ending injustices, promoting equal rights. Now it's about creating racism, demanding inequality in favor of every race, nationality, religion other than that of the majority. Rebels without a cause, looking for excuses to create them, and to the point of belligerently defying common sense. I grew up with the old liberals, they were good people. Todays liberals remind me of...Well... Brats.

  • Government is and should be dependent on the idea of checks and balances, this contradicts that idea in the most abhorrent way possible.

    The fundamental tenet of our government is the concept of checks and balances, this applies not only to the institution that's doing the governing but also to the citizens and organizations interacting with it. I'm a conservative, but I recognize the need for a healthy political balance. In the late 1800's it was liberals fighting against the institution of slavery and fighting what we now recognize as a fundamental right, equality. Meanwhile democratic state legislatures in southern states oppressed African Americans with Jim Crow laws. It was the liberal economic policies of FDR in addition to World War II that brought America out of the worst depression in history. This country is a democracy. Here you are entitled to rights, principle among these is the right to disagree with others and in the act of "banning liberalism" you trample on this right and disavow the principles that gives me the right to disagree with you and vice versa. We shouldn't think of politics as left or right or blue and red, but as an area where we voice our concerns, combine our ideas and then do something about them.

  • This country was founded on the idea of checks and balances, this applies not only to government but to all who involve themselves in it.

    There are several reasons to oppose this. For starters,the UD was founded upon the the ideology of checks and balances, this applies not only to government but also to those who participate with it in any shape, form or fashion. I'm a conservative but the resolution is false in so many ways. Think back to the eras of reconstruction and the civil war. Conservative southern democrats upheld the institution of slavery while the more liberal abolitionists, the likes if John Brown, fought against the injustice that was so plain to see. It was the liberal economic policies of FDR that, in addition to the Second World War, brought America out of the worst financial collapse in human history. In your argument you say we need to eliminate liberalism from our politics. The only metric by which one can define liberalism is by defining conservatism, a lofty and probably impossible mission considering some of the social policies of the Tories in Britain would be considered liberal across the pond. This country would certainly benefit from more conservative policies but government should be dependent on robust, impassioned and intelligent debate and in order to achieve such a goal you need to have more than one side arguing.
