Why I Will Never Be A Liberal

Here is the video of Ronald Reagan announcing his candidacy for President in November of 1979. This video, while a bit long, hits every point concerning why I am conservative, and will never be a liberal: optimism, faith in the future, belief in the goodness of mankind, contempt of government's spiked fisting of the people, and an unwillingness to accept our best days are behind us.

Here is the text.

My favorite portion:

In recent months leaders in our government have told us that, we, the people, have lost confidence in ourselves; that we must regain our spirit and our will to achieve our national goals. Well, it is true there is a lack of confidence, an unease with things the way they are. But the confidence we have lost is confidence in our government's policies. Our unease can almost be called bewilderment at how our defense strength has deteriorated. The great productivity of our industry is now surpassed by virtually all the major nations who compete with us for world markets. And, our currency is no longer the stable measure of value it once was.

But there remains the greatness of our people, our capacity for dreaming up fantastic deeds and bringing them off to the surprise of an unbelieving world. When Washington's men were freezing at Valley Forge, Tom Paine told his fellow Americans: "We have it in our power to begin the world over again," we still have that power.

We--today's living Americans--have in our lifetime fought harder, paid a higher price for freedom and done more to advance the dignity of man than any people who have ever lived on this Earth. The citizens of this great nation want leadership--yes--but not a "man on a white horse" demanding obedience to his commands. They want someone who believes they can "begin the world over again." A leader who will unleash their great strength and remove the roadblocks government has put in their way. I want to do that more than anything I've ever wanted. And it's something that I believe with God's help I can do.

Contrast that optimism with the shit Obama spews on a daily basis. Contrast Reagan's optimism with Obama's clueless fatalism. Contrast Reagan's belief in the things that made and continue to make America great with a fool who bows before anything in front of him. And contrast the hope and change that Reagan promised (and delivered) versus what we have now.

America's best days are ahead of us, and fuck those who disagree. Fuck them with the sonicblasted hurty stick of hurt. Fuck them for pushing the clowns on us who are preventing our best days. Fuck those fuckduckcocks of FAIL. Fuck them because we need people at the helm who are optimistic, not whining fuckwhiners who blame others. And fucking fuck them with the fucksicle of fucking get outta my fucking way for being dead fucking weight holding America back.

We need people willing to dream and accomplish big dreams, not fucking pussies who tell us we should accept less in order to spread the wealth. We need people who refuse to leave a shithole for their children to live in, not clowns who continue to burden and enslave our future to a life of penury and chattelism to the bureaucracy. And we need somebody with the balls to tell the left to fuck off and take their fuckitude with them. And all of this was accomplished with the projection of strength, confidence, intelligence, and a refusal to accept nothing less than the best for all.

So, fuck you lefties. Take a look at how a real man with optimism can save the world.  It happened once, and may soon happen again in 2012.
