Savage is celebrating his 20th Anniversary on air today.
Good for him...
I'd periodically listen to him under the Bush administration, and liked him better then.
Conservatives didn't seem or come off as 'whiney' when Bush was in office.
And I guess that's just human nature, when you get your way, or think you're getting your way, you whine less.
Also, non political Conservatives, meaning those who just live decent moral based lives, outside the spectrum of TV, elected politics, or radio, seem a bit more grounded.
Your average Conservative, say in Nebraska, isn't screaming his head off into the Mic, to generate RATINGS.
Your average non political Conservative just doesn't have that 'shock jock' way about them.
And a lot of behavior, Media and Political Conservatives display, don't nessisarily reflect your average 9-5, working at the mill type of person who lives a decent life.
I myself live a decent life, have always taken care of self, don't fornicate or sleep around, always respectful of others, polite, mannerable, believe in strong defense, raised to believe the 10 commandments were binding and so on, but unfortunately, now days in order to be a Conservative you're expected to be angry and hostile at the President or other elected leaders all of the time.
It's like that's the only qualification to being a Conservative anymore...If you hate the elected President, than you're considered a Conservative.
But that's where Conservatism comes in Conflict with the Principles of Christ.
Politics will actually lead one away from a salvation orientated outlook , and more towards a condemning one.
Politics tends to erode the love you have towards others, and instead makes you want to lump people into groups, based on if their for you or against you, in short politics is very divisive.
And many Christians who get sucked into politics change rapidly from a Christ orientated message to a message of hostility, rage, suspicion and condemnation.
Hostility rage and anger just isn't good for your health, spiritual health or physical health.
If Savage met me, followed me around in my life, he'd think I was a 'Conservative', but again, living right, or decent, or honest can't be politicized.
Good decent principles don't come from politics, they come from a higher source, or inner source.
And politics falsely tries to label to many things as right or left, when most have nothing to do with either.
I think Conservatism directly competes with religion or Christianity in always trying to take credit for 'good behavior'.
When someone's more concerned about which party you belong to, rather than the state of your salvation, than they have elevated electorial politics above God.
Which is fine, but then they shouldn't turn around and claim to represent the biblical God.
And in fact, Secular or Athiestic Conservatism has been around for a while and seems to be growing.
In other words Conservatives who don't derive their identity or spirit from 'A God', but rather from Secular based ideology.
Conservatives always assume if one is Liberal, than they're automatically 'anti God and or religion'....that's a conservative belief, but it's not a fact.
There are plenty of Democrats and Liberals who not only believe in a higher being, but also make up a large body of church goers on Sunday or Sabbath (Saturday).
So anyways, it's Savages 20th Anniversary on air, good for him.
