The Conservative Party will rectify the consistent failures and corruption of the current two-party system. The Conservative Party will impose fiscal discipline, restrain the reach of the federal government as outlined in the Constitution and defend America’s traditional family values.
The election in November 2012 virtually sounded a death blow for Conservatism in America. Was it a true informed decision of the electorate or was it simply the help of the unions, the real reason President Obama was reelected?
The national level politics is not the primary focus of the Conservative Party (Arkansas). While this is invariably an important subject, we are concentrating on Arkansas and the implementation of “Project Mayberry”.
While this may sound hokey, the ideals in it are rock solid. Those of us who grew up with Andy, Opie, Barney and Aunt Bea, are well aware of the values that small town and its citizens embraced. God, Country, Family and Liberty were values that held the nuclear family together. These values are no longer as prevalent as they once were. It is up to us, you and me to not only bring back these family values, but to take an active part in the community to reestablish them as critical components of the family home and society overall.
It is important that true conservatives step up and take the lead at the city, county and state level. Arkansans can be the point of the spear nationally if we elect people who are not afraid to say “NO” when it comes to frivolous spending, political paybacks with our tax dollars by crooked politicians. The first and foremost lesson we conservatives have to teach our governments is this:: “You can’t spend more than you take in!” Another lesson to teach our governments is, if you do have a surplus at the end of the year, Don’t spend it just to avoid losing that amount in the next budget!
