As a rule, I tend to avoid liberal editorials. It has been my experience these editorials offer no positive insights, only rants about Conservatives ruining the country. On occassion I will waste a few minutes of my morning reading these opinion pieces only to find myself utterly annoyed when I am through. There are instances however when these editorials manage to make me laugh… this is one of those times.

SFGate.com has a column today titled “When Liberals Rule The World” which I find particularly interesting. Not the “I just learned something” type of interesting, but the “I now feel dumber for having read this” type of interesting. Rather than subject you to having to read the entire piece of liberal ranting, allow me to summarize. The author Mark Morford has come to the brilliant conclusion that Conservatives are having more children then Liberals, because they have no conscience. Ill pause for a moment for you to stop laughing before I continue………

“According to another set of data, for the past 30 years or so, conservatives — particularly those of the right-wing red-state Christian strain — have been out-breeding liberals by a margin of at least 20 percent, if not far more. It’s true. The reason? Why, God loves babies, of course. White American babies, most especially. Also: issues of space, religion, sexual orientation and, of course, conscience. Or, you know, lack thereof. “

He then goes on to describe what he means by “lack of conscience”:

Among the right-wing God-lovin’ set, there is often little real awareness of planetary health or resource abuse or the notion that birth control is actually a very, very good idea indeed, and therefore it’s completely natural to worship at the altar of minivans and SUVs and megachurches and massive all-American entitlement and have little qualm about popping out six, seven, 19 gloopy tots to populate the world with frat boys and Ford F-150 buyers and food court managers.

The author, trying to make sense of data which he does not like, has dredged up this theory that Conservative are having more children than liberals because we do not care about “planetary health or resource abuse” while the Liberals do. The fact is, it would be very easy to explain the data in this study using common sense.

Conservatives in general believe in the family unit. We believe a marriage between a man and a woman is sacred and strong family ties at home allows their children to be more productive members of society as adults. We do not believe abortion on demand to be a right as layed out in the Constitution as Liberals do, and we do not believe Homosexuality is natural and moral, as Liberals do.

Since 1973 an estimated 35 million babies have been aborted (the author does not mention this when he speaks of “social conscience”). In the same time period countless other babies were never concieved because men and women have decided they prefer to share their bed with a same sex partner.

I am reminded of a quote from the movie Boyz N The Hood “The best way to destroy a people is to take away their ability to reproduce.” Well luckily for Conservatives we dont have to take that ability away, Liberals dont appear to want it!
