There is a conversation taking place on Reva's Take that I need to rant about. She challenged Progressives to present some new ideas that are outside of the realm of Liberal Ideas. I gave her my take on Progressives, but there is one post that really got me thinking.
From a Post on Reva's Take:
The dictionary.com definition of a conservative is someone "favoring traditional views and values; tending to oppose change."That is the best difinition of most "progressives"
I could think of. The 60's are long over and despite the failure of socialism they won't give it up.
It is the 'tending to oppose change part that got me to thinking. What is wrong with change? The Conservative mindset seems to be that we must return America to the moral utopia it once was. So I ask my Conservative friends, when did this America exist? To what era in America are we trying to return?
I am looking for my Conservatives friends to define the era, or even a decade when America best represented the moral values you Conservatives seek to preserve. Was it the 50's, the 40' or maybe the roaring 20's? Maybe we should go further back in our history. Maybe the 1830's is when America best defined the moral values you Conservatives seek to preserve.
