So, I'm a conservative.
Everyone knows this, right?? I mean, I like to think I'm pretty unapologetic about it. However, if you're a centrist or left-leaning, don't be fooled into thinking I'm not open-minded enough to consider the position of the "other side."
I have. In fact, I've sincerely tried to convince myself of some of the principle those on the left stand on--but... I can't. That statement probably deserves a lot longer explanation, but for the purposes of this post--it is what it is.
It feels like everyday there's new propaganda or a new campaign that's trying to take a shot at conservatism. I get so sick of it. The truth is... so much of the doctrine of the left is based on fallacy, misunderstanding, uncertainty, misconceptions, or really--flat out lies.
So, I decided... I'm going to try and start documenting the random ones that come up in my day to day. Now, if you're one of those apathetic Americans, don't stop reading because you think I'm going all political on you. I'm not. God's too good, & I have too much of His joy to share for me to turn people away because of my political persuasion.
Just do this for me--when you do find these kind of posts, read with an open mind... and accept that not everything you've been told in school, in the media, & even in church is true. I will try not to make any presuppositions or false assumptions. I will only state the facts.
This is a good week to start because I have two examples of liberal lies that I can't wait to share. They're not good examples of the flat-out-lies that are told, but they are pretty unveiling about the heart of the left. However, I'm learning to be more positive in my rhetoric, so instead of exposing lies--I'm going to present truth. :)
Truth #1: Planned Parenthood is not pro-woman & not pro-choice.
This clip is just one example of MANY that supports the truth that Planned Parenthood actually hurts women (of any age... in this case... underage):
I challenge you to watch just a couple of the clips on www.liveaction.org. It won't be easy--I become physically ill watching them, but it WILL impart the truth of what really goes on inside Planned Parenthood to you... and, I pray it inspires at least one of you to take action.
P.S. Be aware of new legislation coming up in the new Congress to defund Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood isn't Pro-Choice... it's Pro-Abortion. Check out these graphics.
((I chose this source because it had the prettier graphs. Every source had the same stats.))
Truth #2: Left-leaning reporters will say anything to try and discredit conservatives. (So much for the positive rhetoric!)
This clip is of a panel in which NBC reporter, Andrea Mitchell, accuses conservatives of appropriating Ronald Reagan. Outrageous.
FYI, Ms. Mitchell:
1. Ronald Reagan was a conservative.
2. Ronald Reagan was a Republican.
3. President Obama is the only one "appropriating" Reagan.
Don't you feel enlightened?! :)
In other news: life in DC is GREAT! I'm absolutely loving my job with everything in my being. However, as always, I miss Texas. I've worn my big, blinging necklace that's shaped like Texas TWICE in 2 weeks.
I was sad though today when I had to explain that "Don't Mess with Texas" was not, in fact, a battle cry at the Alamo, but an anti-littering campaign. Eh...oh well. I still tell people I'm from the Republic of Texas. If they get it, it's funny. If not, they need to go back to 7th grade history.
