The Second Amendment gives citizens of the United States the right to keep and bear arms. This amendment to the constitution was written for the purpose of allowing citizens to protect themselves, their families, and their property. But in an age where our news media junkets are bombarded with stories of mass shootings and crime rates more and more, politicians are moving to create stricter gun control laws and abolish the second amendment. However tragic these events may be we cannot allow politicians to use these travesties to espouse their own political agendas.
Big government is a term that refers to government system or public sector that is considered to be too large or overly involved in areas of the private sector or in creating public policy. One extreme example could be in which a federal government agency would try to dictate how an individual may dress or eat. But that is just one far-reaching example. You can normally see big government at work when attempts are made to create federalized programs to implement what is traditionally state level programs or in the realm of a private organization such a non-profit group or church.
As a conservative, it can easily be assumed that when talking about same sex marriage that you are just homophobic. In fact, all sorts of terms have been applied to people who believe in traditional marriage. But the fact of the matter is that to hold this view doesn’t make you hateful or a bigot. The history of this topic and the way it has been handled in America is one topic is fraught with misunderstanding and name-calling on both sides.
This is another topic where conservatives have been made to look like the bad guy. Of course, we want everyone to have access to health care. The issue of uninsured individuals does need to be addressed, however, the answer is not by allowing the government to completely control our healthcare system and our access to it. The base of all of our issues with health care sits within this question: who will pay for it? Our healthcare system has been broken for a long time and conservatives and liberals can both agree that there does need to be reform.
You would have to be hiding under a rock to not have heard of the Occupy Wall Street protest and the accompanying discussions of the 1% and a greater wage gap. These arguments have been thrown in the face of conservatives by liberals over and again as if all conservatively minded individuals hope to see the wealthy become wealthier at the expense of the poor. However, this is not the case. The simple fact of the matter is that this is not a black and white subject but is multifaceted and must take into account many different factors.
