The Myth of Liberal Compassion

No, I have never heard a conservative promise utopia, (is Eutopia a true utopia?), Conservative principles are based on REALITY, and LIBERTY, NOT utopian compulsion and theft of property at the point of a gun. And, isn't that what your politics always come down to. You and your experts are so infallible that they know and are able to execute the utopian dream better than millions of free people. But the record of history screams at deafening volume that such schemes ALWAYS lead to the death of millions that don't fit into the utopian plan. From the Crusades, through our World Wars, through the killing fields and politically induced famines, it has been the utopian, not the conservative that has denied our inalienable rights in favor of their convenient utopian dream / scheme that always ends in destruction.
For too long, we have accepted the enemy's limits on our faith and action. They lull us to sleep, while they shave our heads. WAKE UP! The lives of you, your children and later generations depend on us defending our faith. Every time The Church has failed to stand for right, MILLIONS have died. The Crusades, Napoleon, Hitler, Stalin, Mao... Share, but do not be sheared. By the way, a Gentleman is one who uses only that force required to accomplish his rightful purposes.
I am so tired of people equating Christianity and Judaism with pacifism. They make my Christ a feminized mamma's boy. He was not a pacifist. He was generally a gentleman. Though he did not fight for his own life, but rather laid it down, He did confront and fight for others. His treatment of offenders in the temple was NOT pacifist. His treatment of the stoning mob, was NOT pacifist. His comments on the Pharisees and leaders were outright "vulgar" in the vernacular. He and his disciples were routinely criticized for their crude vulgarity of habits and associations. In the Old Testament, God gave the Biblical principles for war with an enemy. What was that? TOTAL DESTRUCTION! Paul talks of the government's sword. For What?
