A conservative's day in paradise Part 2
Tomorrow is the birthday of Ronald Wilson Reagan. I'm going to create another video just to reflect and share with everyone why I have such a deep admiration for him as a person and as a president. Liberals have a hard time comprehending why conservatives hold Ronald Reagan as the "gold standard" for conservatism. It's really not that hard to figure out. Let me use the owners of the Ropewalk as an example. Marc and William took a chance in creating the Ropewalk Tavern many years ago. These two brothers believed in themselves and ceased upon their entrepreneur spirits to take a risk, and their risk has paid off many times over for them. Reagan embraced free market capitalism and the spirit of individuals to empower themselves. Barack Obama like most liberals are the complete opposite. They believe that the government should be all powerful and not the individual, because the masses are to incompetent to do for themselves. People ask me why I'm conservative. I didn't wake up one day and say "I think I want to be a conservative". I just believe in the power and spirit of the individual and not the government like some people do.
"If I help him, he will help me"? This is the stark contrast between liberals and conservatives. Conservatives believe in helping themselves, liberals believe that the only entity that can help them is the government via the president, governor or mayor as this Obama supporter stated. President Reagan said it best "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'"
