This is something most conservatives know to be true. Ignorance is the base for all things liberal. Knowledge is the base for all things conservative. If it doesn’t make fiscal sense, if it doesn’t pass a sniff test – well, it just doesn’t happen.
If you fail to educate yourself, you are hurting yourself. Each and every day should be a new experience and you should learn something daily. Open a book, read an article, SOMETHING. Just remember that knowledge is power and freedom.
