A Zero Tolerance Litmus Test for Conservatives

Posted on: March 11, 2012

After hearing Republican after Republican call themselves “conservative” and then seeing them create larger and larger government, I think what we need in this country is a Zero Tolerance Litmus Test for Conservatives.

By zero tolerance I mean, “has anything the candidate done led to bigger government?” If so, then they simply don’t pass the Zero Tolerance Litmus Test as a “conservative.” And if elected after passing said test while in office their actions lead to larger government, then another more conservative candidate shall be selected.

One does not like to prevent the growth of beneficial programs by implementing across the board cuts to government, but severe taxes prevent the growth of the economy.

In 1951 a family of four paid two percent of their income in federal taxes. It is close to ten times that today, often more. And that is just federal taxes.
