Conservative Republican A conservative republican is a political figure that some hate and some love. Politics are a matter of who is more right and who is less wrong. There is no happy medium. Conservatives have a hard time drawing the line with liberal views and the media on many different topics. The life of a conservative republican is never dull or boring. The typical politician enjoys the heat of it all, but not all of them enjoy controversy. Conservatives tend to stay calm, unless, pushed passed their limits. There is always something everyone will disagree on, and that is why politics will never die out. Conservative republicans believe that there will always be a need for politics, because it is against human nature for everyone to agree on everything. There are many misconceptions people have of the Republican Party, but without those misconceptions there would not be a reason to prove how right the party actually is. Although many see conservative republicans as bigots and small minded people, Republicans are true patriots who fight for constitutional freedoms, promote limited government, and discourage modern feminism. Republicans have many different titles; some of these titles are positive, and other names are not. Republicans would rather be known as true patriots who fight for constitutional freedoms. The rights Americans have been given, by the amendments in the Constitution, are slowly but surely being ripped away right before our eyes. Republicans are not in any way pleased with that. The Constitution was written as a law. Laws are meant to be followed, and if laws are broken the criminal should be prosecuted. Conservatives do everything they can to prosecute people who see fit to push the United States Constitution aside. As Americans, we have the freedom of speech to say whatever, whenever, and however we want. It should not matter if someone says something right or wrong. It is that person’s freedom to speak. American citizens have the right to their opinion. The Second Amendment, the rights to bear arms, is not only a constitutional right, but it is unethical to take away. Guns have been used for countless years. No matter what the year is or time period, guns have always been misused. When a gun was misused back in the day, they would punish the criminal. The government would not punish every single innocent citizen. Republicans do not believe it is fair to punish an innocent citizen for a crime they did not commit. Ronald Regan once said, “We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American perception that each individual is accountable for his actions.” That statement is far more accurate in today’s time than it was when he said it. For as many misusers there are, there are many more people that abide by the law. With all that said it would be unconstitutional to take away the Second Amendment. The First Amendment covers many different rights, but the most important is freedom of religion. No one, of any religion, should be told when they can pray, or how they can pray. The First Amendment makes it clear that all religions have equal opportunity. Republicans will see that the First Amendment is held high as well as all the others. Conservative republicans push and press for many different things. There is one that sticks out strongly, and that is the promotion of a limited government. The American government should not be permitted to have access to their citizen’s private life. There is a difference in a law abiding citizen and a terrorist. The liberal government cries wolf too many times for anyone to believe the government truly needs a reason to enquire about the personal lives of the nation’s citizens. Conservatives see the corruption it is causing when our president insists on having his men listen in on phone conversations that he has no business listening to. Limited government would not allow these…
Speaker A speech:
Robert Bork has algned with those of the conservative Republican party.
As an originalist, Bork believed that the "rights to privacy" was not a part of the Constitution. Therefore based on this view, if he were to be selected an Associate Justice, he bluntly stated that he would vote to reverse the decision of Roe v. Wade most all of the qualifications of age for that matter needs - impartiality. Bork has had published many works which described his opinion on issues and cases…

constituencies. A constituency to the Republican or Democratic party can either be an extremely large group of people such as racial minorities, conservatives, liberals, and middle class workers. A constituency can also be a group smaller than an entire ethnic background, but still have an extremely powerful voice in elections such as supporters for abortion, feminists, environmentalists, and other groups that are active in progressive social causes. Republicans and Democrats have long been the two…
. marked the end of an epoch. No longer could Republicans count on the basic conservatism of the American people, the reflexive hostility to candidates who favour big government"
(Darman, 2010, 34)
In the 1970s and 1980s there was a consensus that the importance of political parties was in decline, that the shared conservative ideology of the American electorate was reflected in the similar ideology and policy of the Democratic and Republican party. Now, however, the parties are seemingly…
States for a quarter century.
Today, the right is politically dominant. The president is an avowed conservative; so are the vast majority of Republicans who control the Congress. The courts have moved to the right; conservative voices are prominent in the media; and three Americans call themselves conservative for every two who say they are liberal.
Yet now, at what should be the floodtide of conservative power, many on the right are expressing open, even passionate disagreement with what has been done…
governments." While there are several different strains of Conservatism in American and in Western politics, “Traditionalist Conservatives” and “Libertarian Conservatives” tend to favor free market enterprise, tax cuts, and lassie-faire economic policies. Traditionalists also hold great respect for the established order and Judeo-Christian principles. Traditionalist and Social Conservatives oppose same-sex marriage, abortion, and gun control. They tend to support school choice, school prayer and capital…

American public is made of polarized liberals and conservatives to be sure, but it is also made up of
libertarians, populists, and moderates who not only face a party system with no natural home, but
one that systematically cross-pressures them day-by-day, issue-by-issue, and election-by-election.
To wit, our previous research reveals deep divides in contemporary American politics—not
just between liberal Democrats and conservative Republicans or between an active ideological
minority and an inactive…
Why the Republican Party should turn to the TEA party.
Much is being made about the second consecutive Republican defeat in the US presidential elections. The nature of the defeat, which even after four difficult Obama years in office with unemployment figures at record levels Mitt Romney wasn’t able to secure the 270 electoral college votes required to secure office. Romney was proposing a fiscally conservative policy towards the all important US economy as he proposed 20% universal tax cuts and…

PAS 320- Dr. Bruce Tyler
Final exam paper
During President Barack Obama’s first term conservatives felt that success came in the form of fighting Obama with every step he took. He took office hoping to bring real change and support for middle and lower class Americans; the type of progressive inclusion these classes had not seen in five decades. Conservatives hope to not only stymie his efforts but to “fundamentally change America,” leaving millions with nothing to turn…
