Dana Perino: Why Am I A Conservative
Why am I a conservative?
That’s a question I get a lot. I don’t know if liberals are ever asked to explain themselves, as if liberalism is a natural state of being and conservatism is an aberration that must be examined and defended.
Usually when I’m asked this, it’s with some sort of disbelief or even disdain: “How could you possibly be a Republican?”
It actually comes quite easily to me.
