Why I Am A Conservative

Novelist Andrew Klavan has written a column which, I think, says better than I could say on my own why it's good to be a conservative. Here's the open paragraph:

The thing I like best about being a conservative is that I don’t have to lie. I don’t have to pretend that men and women are the same. I don’t have to declare that failed or oppressive cultures are as good as mine. I don’t have to say that everyone’s special or that the rich cause poverty or that all religions are a path to God. I don’t have to claim that a bad writer like Alice Walker is a good one or that a good writer like Toni Morrison is a great one. I don’t have to pretend that Islam means peace.

Be sure to read the whole thing. Then check out Dadmanly's response to Klavan's column.
