A Complaint Against "Conservatism"
Many conservatives choose tribe over truth. Party loyalties trump objectivity and reason. For example, Senate Minority Boss Mitch McConnell famously declared, “The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president." And conservative icon Ronald Reagan in 1968 said George Romney, Mitt’s father, should not have challenged Richard Nixon to a debate. Reagan said, “I don’t think that’s necessary. Whenever you do that, you return to the atmosphere of violating the 11th commandment, which we originated in California, that you should speak no ill of another Republican.” As a Republican, I disagree with McConnell and Reagan. Those who truly treasure liberty should choose truth over tribe.
