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

by Ruby Petralli

            The question I have to answer is: "How do conservative principles impact the happiness and prosperity of all Americans?"  First I'm going to give the definition of Conservation.  Conservation, according to the dictionary, means to hold traditional attitudes and values and remain cautious about change or innovation.  It could be a positive or negative reaction to Americans, it just depends on what the change is.  For example gun control brings out a positive reaction and abortion a negative reaction in conservative principles.

            Conservative principles will impact the happiness and prosperity of all Americans in a positive way by letting people keep guns.  It's much safer to let people have guns in more ways than one. First off people have a right to bear arms.  People have the right to protect themselves, and they can with the second amendment, which is the right to bear arms.  By letting people have guns you're only letting them protect themselves other than to get in a bad situation with no protection.  Those are some of the reasons that the conservative principles will impact the happiness and prosperity of all Americans in a positive way, by letting people keep guns.
           
            Conservative principles will impact the happiness and prosperity of all Americans in a positive way by immigration.  Conservatives support legal immigration only and oppose amnesty for those who enter the U.S. illegally (illegal immigrants).  Those who break the law by entering the U.S. illegally do not have the same rights as those who obey the law and enter legally.  The borders should be secured before addressing the problem of the illegal immigrants currently in the country.  The Federal Government should secure the borders and enforce current immigration law.  Those are some of the reasons why conservative principles will impact the happiness and prosperity of all Americans in a positive way by immigration.

            Conservative principles will impact the happiness and prosperity of all Americans in a negative way by immigration.  Liberals support legal immigration and support amnesty for those who enter the U.S. illegally (undocumented immigrants).  Liberal Americans also believe that undocumented immigrants have a right to:  all educational and health benefits that citizens receive (financial aid, welfare, social security and medicaid), regardless of legal status, the same rights as American citizens.  It is unfair to arrest millions of undocumented immigrants. Those are some of the reasons why conservative principles will impact the happiness and prosperity of all Americans in a negative way by immigration.

            One conservative principle that will impact the happiness and prosperity of all Americans in a negative way is abortion.  Some might think that it's not right in any way to get rid of a baby, even if its not born yet. The baby is another human being that has its own rights from the mother, even if its not able to speak for itself.  It is wrong to take a life no matter the circumstance, even if it wasn't born yet, or not even close to being born yet.  Or also some might think that it's not alive yet so it doesn't matter what happens to it.  That since the woman is its mother she gets to make the decision on whether it gets to live or not.  It is a choice the mother gets to make know matter what. Those are just a couple of the reasons that conservative principles will impact the happiness and prosperity of all Americans in a negative way.

            In conclusion, conservative principles would impact the happiness and prosperity of Americans in a positive way.  It would be best to just follow the 2nd amendment and let people have the right to bear arms.  And for abortion, it just depends on the person, if the person is just too poor to care for it and can't pay the hospital bills then let her abort it, but if the person can support the child and has no real reason not to keep it then they shouldn't even consider abortion.  We should stop letting illegal immigrants in because we already have a lot of them here.  That concludes my Essay about "How do conservative principles impact the happiness and prosperity of all Americans?"
