It has been stated that a conservatarian (a name purportedly attributed to Dr.
Tim Nerenz) is a combination of the attributes of a conservative TEA Party member
and a libertarian. This is basically true, although I believe a conservatarian is
a little right of a Tea Party conservative and a little left of a libertarian. Or
perhaps stated more eloquently, a conservatarian is a modern constitutional originalist.
A conservatarian believes in the constitution as it was written and believes
that if one wants changes to the document there is a way to accomplish this without
just circumventing it or as done of late just ignoring it.
A conservatarian understands that this country is not a democracy, but is a representative
republic. As such it is not governed by the ever changing whims of a vocal majority
or a more vocal minority. Instead it should be governed by the individual states
where those in that particular state can govern according to the states majority
will, with the least amount of federal intervention possible and in comportment with
the Constitution of the United States. This is why the founders enumerated the federal
powers and left everything else to the states. Thus persons of like minds are able
to congregate in those states which fit their individual morals and mind set, while
those with different morals or mind sets are free to congregate in another state
which fits their preferences.(In more modern vernacular different states with different
stokes for different folks.)
Consequently a new party called the CONSERVATARIAN Party for those persons who
are not in love with any of the major political parties in existence currently.
Are You A CONSERVATARIAN ?
Do you Believe:
The Federal Government (and in some cases the state government) has grown to large
and is out of control.
The rights and liberties as defined in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights have
been eroded by an out of control elitist political class.
The political representatives of the people should not be exempt from the laws they
pass for everyone else.
The economy is in shambles due to over regulation and taxation.
The country is headed in the wrong direction.
The Federal Government was designed to be a limited government and most decisions
are left to the individual States.
Less governmental intervention leads to a more productive and prosperous nation.
Some government is needed.
Some safety net for the poor is needed, but for receipt of assistance some labor
is required in return.
That breaking our laws to enter the country does not deserve a path to citizenship
ahead of those who are trying to immigrate to this country following the laws.
That government (Taxpayer) money should not be used to fund abortion.
That there are too many governmental agencies, departments and employees.
What has made this country great has been its personal liberties and its capitalist
That Progressivism, Democrat, Socialist, Communist, Liberal, and most cases Republican
are all names which represent fewer liberties and freedoms for the people and more
control by an elitist political ruling class.
If you believe these things and more, you are most likely a: CONSERVATARIAN.
