| Conservatism is not cool|
I think it was Phil Gramm
who used to say that he was a conservative "before conservative was cool". Yes,
he is the same one who said that the recession was "in the head".
Conservatism was never politically cool. Conservatism is a synonym for "narrow mindedness".
Anyway, these days everybody is saying they are conservative.
- Carly Fiorina -- "I have Sarah Palin values"
- Rob Simmons -- "I carry a tea bag in my wallet"
- Judge Clarence Thomas's Wife --"I'm a Rush Limbaugh Fan"
Well, I don't want the company of these fine characters. I think political conservatism in America has become militant, and has taken an undesirable turn, and I want to be recognized as a progressive. My name (Vikas) means progress
Progressive (or liberal) means generous. (look it up yourself)
Progressive means embracing change.
But I am for simplistic life. I want conservation (of natural resources) and
thrift. I want lesser military spending and lesser taxes.
I guess it makes me a preservative (progressive and conservative)
