    Conservatism encompasses the absolute best of man in every capacity. It's built on liberty, which in turn spurs innovation, which in turn produces prosperity. With Republicans controlling everything coast-to-coast (the White House, the House, the Senate, and 33 of the 50 states), we are experiencing unprecedented prosperity. Things started to turn around with the results of the 2010 mid-terms and the final piece to the turbo-charged prosperity was President Trump taking the White House and removing all of MaObama's illegal Executive Orders designed to block his enemies and reward his pals.
    That's what conservatism does. Every time. And progressivism does the polar opposite every time (just ask the people of Venezuela). It restricts liberty, which in turn decimates ingenuity, which in turn results in perpetual poverty and misery.
    If you had told someone 20 years ago that the U.S. would produce more oil than Saudi Arabia, you would have been laughed out of the country. Yet today, thanks to conservatism, here we sit producing more than anyone but Russia (and we will soon surpass them). Fracking has created energy independence, affordable energy, jobs, wealth, and prosperity. And the left has done everything in their power to prevent it. Fracking is just another example of how conservatism encompasses the absolute best that man has to offer, while progressivism produces the absolute worst that man has to offer.

    The great state of Texas proving once again that conservatism results in unparalleled prosperity...
    The state of Texas now produces more oil than Iran and Iraq combined. Incredible. All due to conservatism providing the liberty which produces the innovation that results in prosperity.

    It's nice to see even PBS acknowledging that conservatism results in the ultimate prosperity. Especially when talking to an ignorant socialist.
    After 2 years of complete failure under progressive control and a steady rise of prosperity under conservative control, more and more people are starting to wake up and simply acknowledge reality.

    We are all now dumber for what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has to say

    Conservatism rejects individuality. It rejects innovation. It only rewards followers who obey without question. Conservatives relish ignorant followers.

    That is literally the definition of progressivism, you nitwit. Conservatism is exclusively about the individual. Progressivism is about the collective.

    You are a very special kind of stupid.

    You have to love little Timmy here. He mentions the liberty to frack and the liberty to keep and bear arms, and then says “what liberty does conservatism provide”? :laugh:

    How about this one little Timmy - the liberty not to be forced by the federal government to carry health insurance?
