Do "Conservatives" Want to Conserve?
By Servando Gonzalez
Conserve: to preserve, protect, save,
safeguard, keep, sustain, maintain, prolong, perpetuate.
During the past weeks, Republican candidates
have been bitterly attacking each other, mostly telling the people
that the other candidates are not conservative enough. As a rule
of thumb, I think that most of what they say about the other candidates
is true, while everything they say about themselves is a lie.
I purposely keep Ron Paul out of this dogfight. The reason is
because, as the last tactic against the only candidate who consistently,
by words and deeds, has done what he swore to do, defend and protect
the Constitution, Ron Paul is not a conservative.
Self-entitled conservative Republicans apparently believe that
they have a monopoly on the Constitution. Now, given the fact
that they still love “compassionate conservative”
George W. Bush, still the main destroyer of the Constitution in
recent times — though Obama is trying harder to beat his
record — I wonder, what do conservatives want to conserve?

interrogation methods) in military detention camps?
Do they want to preserve the cancellation of habeas corpus?
To they want to maintain the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens
without the right to a trial?

under the current police state?
Do they want to perpetuate the DHS’s power to violate the
Do they want to safeguard the right of U.S.-based transnational
corporations to move U.S. jobs abroad, use semi-slave workers
and avoid paying taxes?
Do they want oil magnates, Wall Street bankers and big corporations
to keep using the U.S. armed forces to fight long, non-declared,
unwinnable wars to protect their private interests abroad?
Do they want to prolong the social and economic destruction of
America by the very ones we elected to oppose it?
Do they want to preserve the indoctrination in public schools
on the wonders of abortion and gay lifestyle, and the distribution
of free condoms, birth control pills, and other eugenicist tools
of population control?
Do they want to perpetuate the teaching in our universities of
pseudo-scientific, religious theories like evolution and global
warming, as well as the evils of capitalism and the marvels of
Do they want to continue reducing the freedom of the American
people by both Republicans (Patriot Act) and Democrats (National
Defense Authorization Act)?
Do they want to perpetuate the fiction that there are significant
differences between the Republican and the Democratic Party?
Do they want to safeguard the existence of a corrupt Congress
totally sold to corporate interests?
Do they want to maintain the control of the U.S. in the hands
of a group of CFR conspirators through their secret agents in
the NSC, the Department of State and the Pentagon?
Do they want to prolong the waging of non-declared, unconstitutional
wars all around the planet?
Do they want to keep the growing national debt?
Do they want to perpetuate the right of corporations to produce
their gadgets abroad with slave labor?
Do they want to safeguard the right of corporate executives to
get humongous bonuses and avoiding paying taxes?
Do they want to perpetuate the infringements on our personal freedoms?
Do they want to conserve the breakdown of the rule of law by the
very ones who are supposed to preserve it?
Do they want to prolong the dismal state of the U.S. economy,
the destruction of the middle class and the impoverishing of American
Do they want to keep the growing economic differences between
the very rich and the very poor?
Do they want to maintain the eugenicist practices of killing American
children, either as babies, in their mothers’ wombs (the
Democrat way), or as teenagers, fighting foreign wars on behalf
of transnational corporations and Wall Street bankers (the Republican
If that is what so-called “conservatives’ want to
conserve, preserve, protect, save, safeguard, keep, sustain, maintain,
prolong and perpetuate, please count me out!
