"How do Conservative principles impact the happiness and prosperity of all Americans?"

By: Kalissa Ivy Powers

            Because Conservative principles are upholding the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence states ---- “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”----  

            In order to understand how the Conservative principles impact the happiness and prosperity of all Americans one need to know what some of the Conservative principles are.

 The Ten Commandments: God's law governs Nations as well as man.

            The Ten Commandments should be etched into our heart, mind, and daily behaviors. This creates a moral code where a society can best govern itself. Indulging in instant gratifications will bring crime and be detrimental to society.  Human rights are not given by government, they are automatic. We were given the rights by our Creator.

Gun Control

            “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”  The second Amendment gives people the right to bear arms.  When we lose the right to bear arms, we lose our freedom. As an example of what could happen when a government takes away our right to bear arms is like Nazi Germany. They lost all of their freedom.

National Defense

            The first duty of the federal government is to defend and protect all Americans from foreign threats. The mandate for our national leaders is to use whatever moral, which means they are allowed to create a path in our relations with foreign powers. Which is most likely to lead to increased security, prosperity and freedom for this nation.          

The first God given Right is Life.

            It is not right to take an innocent life. By doing this society devalues life, Which makes violence escalate, Already we've aborted over fifty millions babies in the past three decades. People start accepting euthanasia and doctor assisted suicide. Embryonic stem cell research, all killing life we are at the beginning of cloning human babies for the specific purpose of it killing them.

Small Government

            Small government is very important to Conservatives. Government should never get big enough to infringe on an individual's rights.

            The free market system, competitive capitalism, and private enterprise creates the greatest opportunities and increases a higher living standard for everyone. Collecting only top on revenue needed to fund the legitimate activities of a constitutionally limited government,  this allows for a lively, growing economy. Not creating government dependency, but creating increased revenue.

            In conclusion, the way Conservative principles impact the happiness and prosperity of all Americans is by giving us our freedom. Freedom is our right and it states that in the Constitution. That's what this country was built on. Also it limits government in our lives. It keeps from government running our life.  Life is a right. It has value, every person on this planet is valuable. Even the little baby in your stomach.
