3. If anybody knew conservatives, it was FDR.

They gave him the fight of his life and he prevailed. His tenacity was admirable, even with all he had to deal with regarding his health.

4. How about
"A conservative is a person who looks back and sees a past that never was, while a liberal is a person who looks forward and sees a future that might be"

7. Conservatism is not Pro Life
All living things change. That's what life means.

Things that don't change are called inanimate, meaning 'not alive.'

Conservatives (from the Latin 'conservare' 'con' - together + 'servare' - to keep ) are anti change.

It is progressives who are Pro Life.

Conservatives are Anti Life.
