Before the Election

Matthew Weston suggests maybe, possibly you should vote Conservative.

“Well, it may thoroughly shock long term readers of my blog that I’m voting Conservative on Thursday.

I’m agreeing with that statement. Though, and here’s the rule, if you vote Conservative on Thursday because you’re impressed by their language of a bigger society and smaller state, you’ve then got to actually care for the poor, the broken, and the homeless. If you say that it’s not the government’s place to look after these people, but primarily the people’s neighbours, families, and churches and then you, as these people’s neighbours, families, and churches, don’t do it, you are the worst sort of hypocrite.
