A Quickie Before Bedtime
First, if you’ve got six minutes to spare, check out this bit of YouTubery I found on my brother-in-law’s Facebook page. It’s a bit of an eye opener, NSFW, but it should get you to understand that there is a strong contingent of folks on the “left,” who identify as “liberal,” that believe they should be done with the pretense and identify as communist, socialist, marxist, etc. Here’s the video:
Now then… I agree with him, it would make it so much simpler for those of us that identify as “conservative.” Why bring this bit of tension that exists about labels? Because we have them for a reason, and pretending otherwise does no one any favors. In fact, it’s an element that tends to mitigate against our own interests. Part of the problem with the conservative movement to begin with is it’s failure to understand countercultures. David Swindle has a great article up at PJMedia: Our Deceitful Marxist President’s Cruel War on Sick Medicinal Marijuana Patients. Like I said, this is a quickie… But only for me, cause I’m urging you to take the time to read his article. The last book he mentions is AWESOME stuff, I loved it. Anyway, check him out – he’s worth the read!!
