I don't like the label "conservative." I'm not a Republican. Those are easy labels.
This isn't Republican vs. Democrat.
This isn't conservative vs. liberal.
This is individual freedom vs. government control.
I'm rethinking my grassroots approach based on this line of thought.
I also believe that any political discussions I have going forward will ask the other person to explain the morality of their position in terms of individual liberty.
This is not my team is better than your team.
It's not Red vs. Blue.
Do you support individual liberty?
Do you advocate the right to private property?
How passionate are you about Freedom of Religion? Speech? Press/Writing?
If you're a self-described liberal, do you really believe in individual liberty?
If you're a conservative, do you really believe in limited government?
You decide: individual freedom, or government control?
It's that simple.
