Letter: Chris Stevenson, Purcellville

Editor: Loudoun Conservatives for Joe Biden (LC4B) has fielded some good questions of late as to why Conservatives would be joining such a cause as this. I’d like to answer some of them.

First, LC4B has never argued that the president is unfit for office for moral reasons, in the traditional sense of the word. Thus, we have not been interested in arguing about his morality or immorality; we are likewise uninterested in arguing about the morality or immorality of Joe Biden. To do this feels like would be wrestling in the gutter, amidst the grime and the stench. We, and America itself, are better than that.

In fact, since the beginning, we have only argued that, as a demagogue, his politics are immoral. He does not fit the imperfect yet grand American experiment in self-government – he ruins it. Whatever good Conservative policies have been promulgated are overwhelmed by the destruction of our beloved political institutions.

Second, many imply or come right out and say that the Republican party and the Democratic party are proxies for God and goodness on the one hand (Republicans), and the Devil and evil on the other (Democrats). We do not agree with this at all and reject it as fatal politics: our Republic cannot endure such a division. Both political parties made up of ourselves, our neighbors, our friends and our families, and both have sins and goodness within them. 

Lastly, and relatedly, in all of this we must remain friends. While the imperfect yet grand American narrative deserves our concentration and best efforts, we can also be at peace that there are also more important matters about us around which we can rally. As Isaiah said, “nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance…all nations before him are as nothing; and they are all counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.”

    #MeToo and #BelieveallWomen sure did have an expiration date.

    It’s okay ladies — Your right to be free of sexual predators has been sacrificed for the good of the democrat party.

    “Conservatives for Joe Biden?” Im not sure how a true Conservative would be for Joe Biden. Are not Conservatives those who want to conserve the rights and freedoms they have now or use to have? You know, conserve what we have (life, liberty, PROPERTY), and not hand it over to someone else (the government). Joe Biden was talking about all kinds of new government controls over us and businesses this past year. True Conservatives would be diametrically opposed to Joe Biden’s policies, which are Progressive (the slow or fast progression to government control over every aspect of our lives (Socialism)). Anyone who calls themselves a Conservative would not be ideologically aligned with the Democratic Party, and most likely, also has issues with the Republican Party. Beware folks…LC4B=Closet Progressive.

    Is “Chris Stevenson” a new “nom de plume” for Jonathan Swift? Of is this letter simply unfinished new material for Steven Wright? Frankly, it is about as nonsensical as any of Lunch Bucket Joe’s recent appearances. And that takes a bit of talent to do with a straight face.

    “LC4B” makes as much sense as “Marxists for Liberty.” Frankly, I think the editorial board has been suckered by this bit of tripe. But I see “Mr. Chris Stevenson” has a history of Sphinx-like verbal meanderings posted here so pointlessness appears to be his main theme.

    Excuse me but Mr. Stevenson is not a conservative by any measurement I know of.
