A Tired Conservative

I’m tired of being called a racist because I don’t think the federal government is the best tool to solve all human ills.

I’m tired of being called a woman hater because I don’t think an Iowa farmer should pay for Sandra Fluke’s birth control.

I’m tired of being called anti-science because I’ve doubts about a theory that has a record of failure in prediction (see Science 101).

I’m tired of being called a primitive bible-beater because I think killing a healthy baby at the point of birth is going too far with “choice.”
(Shouldn’t pregnant women–however the cause–accept a tiny bit of responsibly in making a reasonably timely decision?)

I’m tired of being called stupid for believing that our Constitution should be the law of the land.

I’m tired of being told that people who wish for some limits to government are “extreme.”

I’m tired of being told that charity with other people’s money is morally superior to charity with my own.

I’m tired of being told that a false story is still true when it matches a person’s (liberal) view.

And finally, I’m tired of being lied to and about.
