Ron Paul on Social Conservatism: 'I Think It's a Losing Position'

He's right, of course.

Bringing religion or even morality into the political race of 2012 will be a loser for the R's.

I'm not saying we don't need to revive morality and find our moral compass as a nation once again.

I am saying that it is a political loser - it will take people who are passive and make them active, and not in a good way for Liberty.

There is only one winning path for the Oval Office this cycle: The Economy.

On the other hand, there are many losing tracks. The R's seem intent on chasing all the wrong paths.

Here's the article.



  1. He is right, and in my opinion, a true social conservative platform hasn't existed for...90 years, give or take.

    Beyond that,social conservatism has had periods in time, issues of which it may have had traction."Social Conservatism" has it's roots in a sense of blazing your own trail, if you won't do it, I'll go get it. That began to end in the 20's and was fully implemented by the New Deal, not so much in the generation of the time, but their offspring.

    Welcome the Great Society and all of it's benevolent contributions to the down and out, those that were dealt a bad hand, in need of someone else to lift them out of their own bile circumstance.

    This has been a text book manipulation of man's personal pride and drive, a how to manual for snuffing the last bit of personal integrity out of an individual replacing it with a "I can not take care of myself" you must help me.

    A bit long winded here, I digress, however I doubt that with 1/2 if not more, of the population receiving the sustenance they feel entitled to, social conservatism will see any resurgence in the near future.

    We must play the numbers, it is much easier to work from the inside out, than the outside in.
