Conservative People


Conservative in their ways and in their thinking they do not embrace change in any way
They fear change as a threat to their existence as conservative through their lives they do stay
They resist change as if change is quite harmful as things were they wish them to remain
Their flawed values of rank and class distinction are things that they do fight hard to retain
Conservative people change not known to welcome on any change they like to have their say
They crave respect for their old ways of thinking whilst respect to those who want change they don't pay
No thanks to them that changes are occuring since they want to keep us tied to the past
They cannot accept that time brings with it changes that nothing as it was does seem to last,
Conservative people always in abundance their type never have been known to be rare
They live in Villages, Towns and in Cities you can meet their kind of person anywhere
To them change is something that should be resisted to the old ways with reverence they do cling
They fear change as much as they do fear the reaper as if indeed change were a dangerous thing
Suppose it takes all kinds to make up humanity and conservative people will always fight change
They look on people who to them are different as those who are untrustworthy and strange.

    Conservative people normally can see where spontaneous decisions or actions will lead, therefore they know that a new idea or action isn't good for them, their families, or this country as a whole. The liberal, blindly making decisions, based on touchy-feely ideas or feelings, will leap into a swimming pool w/out ever checking if it actually has any water in it. They will jump in, get hurt, and then look for someone else to blame for their injuries., when it's they, themselves, who are completely at fault. (Report) Reply
