Conservative

Just when did the radical capitalists and libertarians hijack the name 'conservative' anyway? I thought conservatives conserved. I value tradition. I value the earth. Maybe that makes me a true conservative.

I believe we are stewards of what we have, not owners. I believe it is given us so we might use it for the greater good. That is a surer path to happiness than the endless pursuit of personal gratification.

Who can truly own anything, after all? We hold these possessions for a few years before they fall from our hands. Care for them while they are in your brief custody.
