Religion and Politics from a Young Christian in Northern Virginia

I’m a Cuccinelli Conservative

March 15th, 2013

Ken’s speech at CPAC today resonated with me.  He spoke out against crony capitalism, and called for the simplification of the tax code as he stood up for the entrepeneur.  On the social justice side, he believes in fighting for all of the vulnerable in society.  He is one of the few elected officials and politicians to make human trafficking a major focus.  He also believes in fighting hard for those who have been wrongfully imprisoned.  After a couple decades of “law and order” conservativism, it is time to stop throwing everyone in jail, and Ken gets that.  He’s a populist who will fight hard on social justice issues as he protects liberty.  That’s my kind of conservative, and I think that is the kind of conservative who resonates with many regardless of party.

    Ken as compassionate conservative? Social justice? Please. He says gays and lesbians should not have equal rights because they violate “natural law.” Virginia’s schools and universities should not have employment discrimination policies that protect gays and lesbians, according to Ken, since they weren’t authorized by his anti-gay buddies in the House. The state should not allow certain kinds of sex between consenting adults. All this as he “protects liberty?” What the heck are you talking about? He is a rightwing authoritarian, not a libertarian or a believer in social justice.
