Thanksgiving Hypocrite Conservatives

28 Nov

I remember growing up looking forward to Thanksgiving. I would get to see family I had not seen in a long time. Stories were shared, fun times were had and live long memories were made. Family was the most important thing.

Today, all Thanksgiving is to most people is a day to eat more than normal (or maybe not) and to go buy material wares in a guise of “saving” money. For the shopping to happen and the “savings” to be available a store has to be open. And for a store to be open, employees will have to sacrifice a day designed to celebrate family away from theirs.

Every single person who claims to be a conservative should boycott stores whom are open on Thanksgiving. The stores need to be only filled with people who think less of family and others. That is not supposed to be conservatives. We spout all the time about “family-values” and their continued deterioration of them in this country, and the world. Yet when conservatives have a chance to make a real difference they put those convictions of “family-values” aside so easily for the all mighty dollar.

Some will try to make the counter argument of, “But not everyone wants Thanksgiving off. Some people want to work and make extra money!” And to those people I would say thank you for proving my point. The fact people are so focused on making more money, to buy and have more stuff, is the exact problem with our society, country and world I am speaking about.

So for everyone of you conservatives who goes shopping today for those “bargains” just remember they come at a price. Nothing in this world is free. The price being paid is the continued erosion of real family-values, which was one cornerstone which made this country so great.
