Who are your conservative mentors and why?


Recommended Posts

Mine are Winston Churchill, and Ayn Rand.  Churchill wrote that socialism is the philosophy of envy.  He had a negative view on any philosophy than involved the looting (not his word) of society.  

Ayn Rand of course wrote extensively on "looting".  She didn't ever call herself conservative, but she fully rejected Libertarianism which I do as well.

Mine are more contemporary than Churchill but I haven't really advanced to the point I can appreciate whatever branch of Conservatism Mikey is supposed to be. ;)

By "mentor" though I'm going to assume you mean the thinkers who influenced my thinking when I started to realize I was a Conservative.

So I'm going to say, Andrew Breitbart and Bill Whittle.

I slid to conservative views on my own, when I realized the Libbies were actively trying to rob North America of the affluent society we've built...in the name of fairness, feelings, and of course...money and power.

It seems I'm assuming the role of 'conservative mentor' in my family.  I think it might have something to do with being the best papa in the world.

I've got a sweatshirt that says so too. Front AND back.
