35 Questions Liberals Wanted To Ask Conservatives

John Hawkins of Townhall asked:

“I’m doing a Townhall column where I’ll honestly, w/out sarcasm, answer liberal questions to conservatives. Any libs want to ask questions?”

He actually wound up writing a second column as well. I enjoyed both very much, but as I was reading, I found myself thinking about how I would respond to those questions if they had been asked of me. So I decided this would be a golden opportunity to provide another perspective from another conservative. There’s nothing wrong with Hawkin’s answers, but I thought it would be fun, and a good writing exercise to answer each one from my point of view, with my additional thoughts, and in a couple places, where we differ.

This is the index to those questions and my responses.

  1. Do Republicans honestly believe voter fraud is a real issue?
  2. Why are conservatives anti-progress?
  3. How can a Christian deny Arab child refugees?
  4. Why do so many people say Trump isn’t racist?
  5. Doesn’t President Trump alarm you?
  6. How does one square pro-life and anti-welfare?
  7. If conservatives believed in the marketplace of ideas, wouldn’t they want everyone to vote?
  8. Why are conservatives against an investigation of Donald Trump’s Russian ties?
  9. What is up with the obsession some conservatives have with cuckoldry?
  10. Why don’t conservatives care about climate change and the future?
  11. What is the conservative view of Trump’s infrastructure plan?
  12. What would President Trump have to do for me to turn against him?
  13. Do you still believe Trump’s business conflicts won’t be a problem?
  14. Why do Conservatives only trust media that flatters current admin?
  15. Why should we allow Bannon to wield power and influence?
  16. How can a conservative square funding for the wall?
  17. Does it bother you that rich people have the same wealth as the bottom half of the world population?
