MLK, WOULD HE BE A CONSERVATIVE TODAY ???
Boy howdy, am I going to stir up some liberals! We have just recently come off of the MLK holiday so I thought I might present some thought provoking ideas. They, the liberals, may have a heart attack after reading what I have to say. That is OK with me as I have for sometime been trying to rid the world of their plight. I truly believe that MLK would indeed be a conservative today and here is a news flash: he may have, or was borderline, at the time of his death. Just like Governor Martinez said after a meeting with the republican committee in New Mexico, “Damn I’m a Republican”; and just like her, I think, MLK probably said to himself, “You know I find myself agreeing more with conservatives everyday.” Now I realize that this is a hard pill for some to shallow; but, I will make my point in the words to follow.
First off, MLK was a “man of the cloth”, a “God-fearing Christian,” which tells me he had to be more conservative than all those so-called Christian “Dixiecrats”. There is no way you can be a Christian and be a democrat. As I have stated before, the two are opposing ideas and are 180 degrees at different ends of the scale. So, MLK was a Christian thusly more conservative. He also believed in equal pay for equal work which is a conservative principle. Democrats believe in the union where you get paid the same, but that you can not be fired so the guy next to you can get the same pay for half the production. MLK applied for a gun permit but was denied. He surely believed in the 2nd amendment or he would have not applied for the gun permit. Yet another conservative principle. By the way, the blacks, as slaves, were not permitted to own a weapon or gun powder for that matter. Just another restriction of rights, so the black community of today better be careful of what they wish. He as a Christian would never have thought it a great idea to pay a person unemployment for almost three years and to allow welfare to be spent on other than basic survival items. Again, another Christian, but also conservative principle. He was big into a man being judged by “his character rather than the color of his skin”. Yet another conservative principle. The republicans are the party that freed the slaves and yet the “old yellow dog democrats” convinced the blacks to vote for them because of the welfare system. That system is just another form of keeping people on the plantation. It is truly amazing that the democrats preach one thing in the light of day and practice something completely different in the dark of night. Be a man, stand on your own two feet, take care of your own family, get a good education and get in the game. That is not only what republicans stand for but it is the “AMERICAN” way and shall I say makes “COMMON SENSE”.
So, here we are after taking a look at the material presented; and, I for one can only conclude that MLK, if alive today would not only be more conservative today than he was before he was assassinated; but might very well be promoting the election of conservatives over liberals to public office. I can only imagine how he would have changed and how he might have changed the landscape of American politics.
It is hard to view our America in the shape it is in today knowing all the while that with a few simple “COMMON SENSE” changes we could get back to the ideas that led us to the greatness of yesteryear. Please inform yourselves on the issues and vote for the people who really want to turn this ship around. We need people in office that are not concerned with their own well-being, but with the well-being of our country. After all, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to support the true patriots.
