This is a repost from December 15, 2017. We can hope what is written below has been changed and hatred of conservatives has new thinking. But, honestly, it just doesn’t happen. The Left wants the Right to shut up. The Right wants the Left to keep talking. By their own words and actions they keep…

Conservatism vs. Liberalism
