Why Be Conservative?

Check out Christopher Brownwell's excellent essay at American Thinker, "Why be a conservative?"

As a conservative I will not change my conservative principles to mirror popular or progressive policies. These conservative principles stand in antithesis to principles held by modern liberals.
The reference to "modern liberalism" is classical liberalism, for example, here.

See also, John Ray, "Defining conservatism," a brief review of Mark Levin's new book, Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto.

We need more of this. There are people who are new to Conservatism and some need reminded. This will help focus us for 2010 and mop the floor with these Libs and RINO's.
