Why Are You Conservative?



In light of Generation Joshua’s new “Why Are You Conservative?” video, I decided to poke around the office a little bit and see why your favorite Generation Joshua employees are conservative.

Glenn Bertsch: “I am a conservative because government does few things well and it is better to keep things at the most local level. The government that governs less governs best.”

Jeremiah Lorrig: “I’m a conservative because I love America and believe in the ideas of limited government, American values and defending our people and God given rights.”

Lucas Mason: “See the video.” (He’s the guy with the beard and duct tape on his glasses, in case you’re wondering).

Andrew Ferguson: “We must learn from history and the great minds that have come before. Standing on the shoulders of giants helps keep a nation from falling into the pitfalls of moral decadence and social decay.”

Jill Roy: “I’m a conservative because I believe that a government of the people, by the people and for the people will not perish from the earth.”

Nick Barden: “When you see all the big political schemes of the modern age -- liberalism, libertarianism, socialism, communism, or any other ‘-ism’ -- they’re all based on the belief that if we just craft the right system, people will be good to each other, or mind their own business, or we’ll somehow reach some sort of utopia. But the fact is that man is fallen, and the problem with the communist’s “dictatorship of the proletariat,” the liberal’s “modern welfare state” or the libertarian’s removal of all moral restrictions is that any system will always be run by corrupt, fallen, selfish man. Christ alone can reverse the effects of the fall, and I’m a conservative because I don’t like politicians trying to take His place.”

Will Estrada: “I’m a conservative because a government big enough to give you everything is big enough to take it all away.”
