Suddenly, I'm a conservative!

Suddenly, I’m a Conservative!


I want to go back to the way things were.

I want to live in a diverse country.

I want people to respect each other.

I want to be accepting of other religions.

I want a woman to have the right to decide what happens to her body.

I want to know how we are going to pay for the Great Wall of Mexico.

I want rational, consistent leaders.

I want the Constitution to be respected.

I don’t want an anarchist in the White House.

And I don’t want civil war.

These thoughts came to me while I was reading an article about Steve Bannon, who has our new president’s ear. I quote from his own statement that “darkness is good,” which he told Michael Wolff of Hollywood Reporter.

“Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s power,” he continued.

Then there’s the statement, reported by the Daily Beast, that Bannon said he wants to

“…bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment.”

So, I’m a conservative. I want to go back to the good old days of the last few years. When we felt a whole lot safer.
