Total Conservative

A boy gets to go backstage at the circus. Amidst all the wonders, it is the circus’s elephant that surprises him the most. Out there, under the big top, the elephant had appeared mighty and glorious. To see him now, tied to a weak railroad stake in the ground by nothing more than a frayed length of rope, the boy is confused.

“Why does he stay?” the boy asks the handler.

“He doesn’t know his own strength,” the handler replies. “He’s been tied to that spike since he was just a little fella. He learned a long time ago…that’s just the way it is. He don’t try to escape now.”

Our government is like that railroad spike. We’ve grown so accustomed to the great might of the federal government that we hardly question it anymore. Some of us may not even understand that we are being held captive at all.

At its outset, the role of the government was to protect its people. Protect them from foreign and domestic harm, protect their (inalienable) rights from being encroached upon, and protect their ability to pursue life, liberty, and happiness. The current federal government goes well beyond those basic tenets. The U.S. government in the 21st century is a provider. It provides welfare for those who don’t work. It provides grants for artists who can’t sell. It provides education for a nation of schoolchildren. Now it even provides healthcare.

There are people who think the problem with government is that it doesn’t provide enough. These are the now fully-grown elephants who have become complacent and accepting of their shackles. They only wish that their handlers would give them a few more peanuts in the morning. Or if not them, at least those skinny elephants across the way.

Total Conservative is geared towards those elephants who understand that they have outgrown their restraints. That the circus never had the right to put them in those restraints to begin with. It is geared towards those people who want to see the federal government protect its citizen’s rights without encroaching on them in an oppressive and systematic way. It is geared towards people who understand that the very best thing you can say about government is that it’s a necessary evil.

Today’s liberal government goes well beyond infrastructure, defense, and policing. It systematically educates our young in public institutions, ensuring that many of them will never see the government as the hostile captors that they have become. It regulates and limits the free market. It limits basic freedoms – look no further than the New York mayor’s outlandish ban on 2-liter sodas to see a government that isn’t even shy about exercising illegal authority over its citizens.

At Total Conservative, we think that it’s time to remember that the federal government was created for the people. By the people. One nation, under God. It’s time to see that tiny railroad spike for what it is. It’s time to return government to a small, limited beast, and let America’s people walk forward into the bright light of day.

It’s time for freedom.

    There will be no difference between many Protestant Denominations and The Roman Catholic Church if this keeps up. Our Bushops and perhaps our Pope are failing to uphold the Teachings and Traditions of The Church.

    • http://www.sammcgowan.com/ Sam McGowan

      Bear in mind that the United States was established by people OTHER than Catholics. It wasn’t until well into the Nineteenth Century that Catholics started gaining a foothold here. We happy to have you but we’re descended from people who came to America to get away from the Roman Catholic church and it’s Protestant daughters.

        Sam,
        Basically Catholicism existed the strongest in New York. It did exist elsewhere but was not the majority in any other colony. But the Catholic/Protestant conflict did exist and was a huge factor in the outcome of the Constitution, especially since the Protestant doctrine differed throughout the colonies.

        • http://batman-news.com Cooleemee Edd

          My Irish ancestors (Great-grandparents) living in Kansas became Protestants because there was no Catholic church within horse-riding or walking distance. It was a simple switch for them as they craved Christian Spiritual nourishment, and becoming Presbyterians didn’t seem to be a problem for them. I don’t know how many of them were “born again” during this period but many of those that followed were. It is hard to tell from the sparse written family records.

          • http://msn.com/ Jerry Branson

            Cooleemee Edd,
            Making the change was certainly necessary in the early days due to travel. Catholicism does lots of good things and I do not necessarily seek to put them down. Members are sometimes really “Christianized” like any other denomination. But the Catholic system of priests and the Pope make it difficult. I have some issues with “born again” when in reality is it spiritual birth that is paramount.

      • Jim Norris

        AMEN TO THAT!!!

    • howard bell

      The Catholic Church and this Pope have become a cancer to Christianity.

      • Carabec

        I stand with the Catholic Church Dogma and Tradition. The Pope, Cardinals, Bishops and Preists are all human. As all of us they have strengths and weaknesses. Every Saint has a past, Every Sinner has a future.

        The Catholic Church nor the Pope are Cancer on Christianity. The Catholic Church is referred to as The Mother Church.

        • howard bell

          Thank you for proving my point.

          • Carabec

            Did I? As far as I see you made no point, only stated an opinion.

          • howard bell

            That’s the problem, you can’t see.

          • Carabec

            I CAN see, you did not make a point.

          • howard bell

            “Therefore, “come out from them and be separate says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing and I will receive you”…2 Corinthians 6:17

          • http://msn.com/ Jerry Branson

            howard,
            I see where others are confused. In 2 Corinthians Paul is calling on Christians to separate themselves from evil. That is not what the current Pope is doing.

          • The Redhawk

            OH yes he did with his POINTED head!

          • mdelmar

            You stated an opinion but made no point– wow, that’s quite some trick! Just asking, are you by any chance an employee of the Obama administration?

        • aPEON

          ‘mother church’ is now just ‘other church’——-no ‘popes, or cardinals, in the New Testament, and only One Priest.

          • Matt_Sweeney

            Incorrect capitalization.

          • http://batman-news.com Cooleemee Edd

            We’re being petty now, folks. If you are born again in the Spirit of God through the Grace of the Father through the death and resurrection of The Son, then you are “born again” as Followers of Jesus and are saved. Those dogmas and traditions born of man and not of the Bible are extraneous and some are dangerous. You can find these things in many denominations. For example, I was once told “if you dance, play cards or drink anything alcoholic, you’re going to Hell.” I don’t find that in the Bible. I walked out of that church in the middle of the sermon, because the preacher said “If you don’t believe this, you might as well get up and walk out right now.” So I did.

        • http://msn.com/ Jerry Branson

          Carabec,
          While I am not Catholic, I see a strange Pope in office but Catholics are fine people and a good ally on many issues concerning Christians.

          • Carabec

            Yes, this Pope is strange even to my eyes. Catholics are fine people and we ARE Christians.

          • http://msn.com/ Jerry Branson

            Carabec,
            We all make our own decisions. That is why we were given options.

          • Carabec

            I don’t understand your response to my comment. Are you referring to ‘Free Will’ ?

          • http://msn.com/ Jerry Branson

            Carabec,
            In Genesis, chapters 2-3, God placed a tree in the Garden of Eden and told Adam and Eve to not eat of the fruit of that tree. They had a choice to obey Go or not. They chose to not obey. We have those same kinds of choices today. We make a choice to obey God or not. Both have consequences.

          • Carabec

            Yes JB, I know about Adam and Eve, then you were referring to Free Will.

          • http://msn.com/ Jerry Branson

            Carabec,
            I guess it is our choice of words. I know what you are referring to. I prefer making an issue of choices and consequences.

    • http://batman-news.com Cooleemee Edd

      More than the “Teachings and Traditions of The Church” is the pure contents of the New Testament of The Bible.

  • howard bell

    Any pew research polls that have to do with religion or homosexuality can be taken
    with a grain of salt, they’re worthless.
    Pew is an extension of the atheist media.
    As far as the Democrats go, the government is their God.
    Who cares?

    • cmi

      I care,…….because THOSE democrats can vote!!!! What the hell do you think caused the G.D. mess we’re going through right now???!! Bush & 9/11, plus Katrina, was bad enough,…….but we scraped the bottom of the barrel to get this “debt-piling” idiot!!!!!!!!

      • howard bell

        From what I heard they (the democrats) don’t even have to go vote and their vote will be counted.
        Their vote counts, but yours doesn’t.
        Not anymore.

  • http://msn.com/ Jerry Branson

    The elephant story is one that applies to all of politics, not just the liberals. We seem to think the press is without bias. Not so. Often I find articles on both sides of issues to find a middle ground. In many cases, I have experienced some of the nonsense and waste in all sorts of agencies and despise the notion of so much welfare without a pay back from those who receive it. I also find the media at all levels to jump to conclusions with too little information, especially on shootings, to be objective and honest with their reporting. I also know about “empire building” as it is in virtually every facet of business and government.

  • JoAnn Dolberg

    Jeb seems to be suffering from dementia.

  • howard bell

    I don’t need a government that forces me to associate and do business with homosexuals.

    The founding documents were created so that no one could make us to do
    these things.

    No more experiments.

    Real Americans and real presidents.

    • http://batman-news.com Cooleemee Edd

      Right, Howard. You have the freedom of choice to do business with and associate with whomever you desire…or not. Unfortunately, with the Constitution being declared “a ‘living’ Constitution,” it changes with the whims of the current Supreme Court justices who have the majority.

      • howard bell

        According to what we are seeing my “freedom” to do businesswith whoever I want to is about to disappear and is going to be replaced by orders to serve homosexuals whenever theydemand it.

  • howard bell

    We will need a dream team of lawyers who believe, and are powered by the spirit of God, not to defend O.J. Simpson, but to defend us, and our religious liberty as guaranteed by the constitution.

        There’s going to be another war in this country that makes the death toll in the civil war look like child’s play.

  • Dannie Poe

    Joking or not Islam is bad for the US. If the government allows Muslims to pray in school then other religions should also be allowed to pray in schools. All the Liberals want God removed from our schools so why does Islams God get a pass. For a nation founded of Christian ideals we seem to forget those ideals when we accept Islam into this nation. I am not opposed to Islam if they accept the ideals of our Constitution. Sharia Law and our Constitution are not compatible in any way. This is why Islam is bad for the US. A Fundamental Islamic follower will never be able to assimilate into the US society based on their religious teaching. We must never allow Sharia Law to be practiced in the US. If we do we will be allowing for the deaths of innocents. In the US it is legal for a woman to reveal their face, yet under strict Fundamental Islam it could cost the woman her head or death by stoning. It is called Honor Killing. If a man or women offends Allah in any way they could be subject to a death sentence. Causing a embarrassment to a family can also get you a death sentence. Many fathers have killed their children without remorse. Is this the kind of thing you want to happen in the US? Many will say I am lying, yet is true. Muslims have been killing Muslims and nonbelievers for thousands of years. If Islam is supposed to be a loving and peaceful religion then why does this happen? Islam is a loving and peaceful for Muslims if they follow the teachings of Allah. If you do not or fail to follow your Islamic leader then “Off with your head”.

    • http://batman-news.com Cooleemee Edd

      Right, Dannie. “Radical” Islamists (whom I call “Jihadis”) want to take your head off. “Moderate” Muslims will make excuses for those Jihadis and if they are allowed to take over, join them joyfully so they won’t get their own heads cut off. Islam is rather cannibalistic in that sense. They tend to eat their own when they don’t agree fully.

  • Jim Norris

    WOW!!! HOW DID THIS “POLITICAL” TOPIC BECOME ONE OF CHURCH OR SPIRITUAL BELIEF? FOR THE LAST TWO CENTURIES WE, AS IN U.S; HAVE HAD RELIGIOUS FREEDOM CONSTITUTIONAL GUARANTEES… IF THE ELEFANT IS SYMBOLIC OF THE AMERICAN RELIGIOUS OPOSSED THEN I STAND IN A STATE OF CONFUSSION AND MIS-UNDERSTANDING…. THE CREATOR ENDOWED US WITH “FREE WILL” AS THE CONSTITUTION DOES IN THIS MATTER… WHERE, PLEASE, IS THE CONNECTION WITH AND TO THE ABOVE ARTICLE?

    NOW IF THE ELEFANT IS SYMBOLIC OF THOSE OF U.S. WHO REJECT GOVERNMENTAL CONTROL AND INTERFERENCE IN OUR DAILY LIFES AND OUR CHOICES REGARDING HOW WE CONDUCT AND LIVE OUT OUR LIVES ESPECIALLY REGARDING THE EDUCATION OF OUR OFFSRING THEN THE LIGHT OF OPPRESSION BECOMES CLEAR AND DEFINITE!!!
    THERE IS ONE AND ONLY ONE RIGHT THAT UPHOLDS AND GUARANTEES ALL THE REST OF OUR RIGHTS TO LIVE INDIVIDUALLY AND ONLY ONE RIGHT THAT PROTECTS U.S. OF THE CERTAIN EVIL THAT MANIFESTS ITSELF IN CURRENT DAY AMERICAN/WORLD POLITICS AND IT’S CERTAINLY NOT THE RIGHT TO SPEAK OUR MINDS…. ALL RIGHTS ARE FOUNDED AND BASED IN THE ONE RIGHT TO POTITION THE GOVERNMENT EVEN IF IT BECOMES A POTITION OF AND BY FORCE………. SO SAITH OUR U.S, CONSTITUTION!!!!!

    WHEN THE 2ND RIGHT COMES UNDER ATTACK THEN ALL OF OUR RIGHTS ARE UNDER ATTACK….
    WHEN ONE REVIEWS WORLD HISTORY ESPECIALLY THAT OF THE 20TH CENTURY AND SEES PHOTOS OF THE THOSE FACES INTERNED IN “ARBEITS LAGEN” UND “KONZENTRATION KAMPEN” OF THE THIRD REICH ONE IS LOOKING AT THE FACES OF FORMER GUN OWNERS AND THOSE WHO NO LONGER HAD THE RIGHT TO PROTECT THEMSELVES NOR THEIR FAMILY NOR THIER COUNTRY FROM THE WILL OF GOVERNMENT GONE EVIL…. THOSE PHOTOS ARE JUST SEVENTY (70) YEAR OLD AND THIS POLITICAL OPPRESSIVE EVIL STILL EXISTS ON EARTH TO THIS DAY!!!

    ALL THAT HAS OCCURED IS THAT EVIL HAS CHANGED IT’S ADDRESS!!!!

    JUST PRAY THAT DONALD TRUMP IS ELECTED AND IS ABLE TO TAKE OVER AS OUR PRESIDENT.

    GOOGLE THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLE 2015 AND YOU JUST MIGHT KNOW WHY.

    BELOW IS A GOOD REASON WHY I BELIEVE THAT A TAKEOVER TRY IS POSSIBLE. HOW CAN THE BIASED NEWS SAY OBAMA IS NOT A MUSLIM.

    President Obama: This is why you didn’t go to France to show solidarity against the Muslim terrorists:
    * It was you . . . who spoke these words at an Islamic dinner -“I am one of you.”
    * It was you . . . who on ABC News referenced -“My Muslim faith.”
    * It was you who . . . gave $100 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to re-build foreign mosques.
    * It was you who . . . wrote that in the event of a conflict- “I will stand with the Muslims.”
    * It was you who . . . assured the Egyptian Foreign Minister that – “I am a Muslim.”
    * It was you who . . . bowed in submission before the Saudi King.
    * It was you who . . . sat for 20 years in a Liberation Theology Church condemning Christianity and professing Marxism.
    * It was you who . . . exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare that the rest of us have to pay.
    * It was you who . . . purposefully omitted – “endowed by our Creator ” – from your recitation of The Declaration Of Independence.
    * It was you who . . . mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ’s Sermon on the Mount while repeatedly referring to the ‘HOLY’ Qur’an.
    * It was you who . . . raveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States of America.
    * It was you who . . . instantly threw the support of your administration behind the building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of the World Trade Center.
    * It was you who . . . refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the White House.
    * It was you who . . . ordered Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast, you have NEVER requested the mosques you have visited to adjust their decor.
    * It was you who . . . appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps.
    * It was you who . . . appointed rabid Islamists to Homeland Security.
    * It was you who . . . said that NASA’s “foremost mission” was an outreach to Muslim communities.
    * It was you who . . . as an Illinois Senator was the ONLY individual who would speak in favor of infanticide.
    * It was you who . . . was the first President not to give a Christmas Greeting from the White House, and went so far as to hang photos of Chairman Mao on the WH tree.
    * It was you who . . . curtailed the military tribunals of all Islamic terrorists.
    * It was you who . . . refused to condemn the Ft. Hood killer as an Islamic terrorist.
    * It is you who . . . has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of women throughout the Muslim culture, but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of hypothetical human-rights abuses.
    * It was you . . . who when queried in India refused to acknowledge the true extent of radical global Jihadists, and instead profusely praised Islam in a country that is 82% Hindu and the victim of numerous Islamic terrorists assaults.
    * It was you who . . . funneled $900 Million in U.S. taxpayer dollars to Hamas.
    * It was you who . . . ordered the USPS to honor the MUSLIM holiday with a new commemorative stamp.
    * It was you who . . . directed our UK Embassy to conduct outreach to help “empower” the British Muslim community.
    * It was you who . . . funded mandatory Arabic language and culture studies in Grammar schools across our country.
    * It is you who . . . follows the Muslim custom of not wearing any form of jewelry during Ramadan.
    * It is you who . . . departs for Hawaii over the Christmas season so as to avoid past criticism for NOT participating in seasonal WH religious events.
    * It was you who . . . was uncharacteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim Brotherhood to depose Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, formerly America’s strongest ally in North Africa; but, remain muted in your non-response to the Brotherhood led slaughter of Egyptian Christians.
    * It was you who . . . appointed your chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett, an Iranian, who is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.
    * It was you who . . . said this country is not a Christian nation.
    * It was you who . . . said the Muslim call to worship is the most beautiful sound on earth.
    * IT WAS YOU WHO GAVE 150 BILLION PLUS TO IRAN.
    * IT WAS YOU WHO RANSOMED 4 PEOPLE FOR 400 MILLION/
    * ARE YOU, KERRY, HILLIARY & THE BIASED NEWS MEDIATO TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY?

    VOTE DONALD TRUMP.
