An American tries to define his own ‘Constitutional Conservatism’
“The foundation of Constitutional Conservatism stems from four simple ideas, expanding from one core principle — a return to the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. Both major parties ignore the Constitution when it suits them, and this must not be.
i)Textual interpretation of the Constitution — The Constitution is not a “living document”.
ii)Fiscal responsibility — If you spend more than you take in, you’re in trouble. All levels of government must balance budgets each year.
iii)Charity — It is not the role of government to take care of people. Each citizen has a moral responsibility to help those less fortunate.
iv)Personal responsibility — It’s time society stops allowing “victims” to shift the blame somewhere else — it’s not the twinkie’s fault.”
