The Left makes it so difficult to be a Conservative, let alone a young female Conservative.
1. You’re only a Conservative because you come from a wealthy Republican family.
Actually, negative. I come from a working class, blue-collar family. This idea that all conservatives are wealthy white men has got to go. In fact, most of the wealthy white men that I know are Democrats. Mike Huckabee said it best, “I’m not a Republican because I grew up rich. I’m a Republican because I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life poor, waiting for the government to rescue me.”
2. You’re a strong, independent woman. You shouldn’t be associating yourself with the GOP.
First of all, yes, I am a strong, independent woman. Second of all, why is the Democratic Party considered the party for “women’s rights?” I’m so over hearing that only liberals work for women. I associate myself with the GOP because I prioritize Foreign Relations, the Economy, and Homeland Security over social issues… BUT, that doesn’t mean I don’t care about certain social issues. The GOP is the People’s party, meaning that the GOP works on issues that are paramount to everyone, not just women and minorities.
3. You must be racists.
Seriously? If I had a dollar for every time a liberal threw that one at me during a heated discussion, I’d be rich by now! Let’s go back to the last sentence of number 2. The GOP is the People’s party. Conservatives believe in equality for all, not matter race or ethnicity. This is why Republicans oppose affirmative action, because they believe it provides certain groups with educational, political, and social advantages that are not available to other groups. Not because we are racists.
