Why are there no conservative leaning "community organizing" groups like ACORN?

How come only the leftists engage in subversive, quasi-legal operations to gain power and influence?

Because were not criminals that want to bring down the USA and transform it into a marxist state.

Eh, I would say the church, the mission would be considered the same.

Because conservatives believe in the private sector, not government sanctioned intervention/revolution.

Fairly simple, for the most part.

We're more towards the individual. Folks should make up thier own minds...and not be herded into things.

That and we tend to not try to be two-faced about crap.

Could say more but, the simplest reason is that we want to be left alone (self-determination) and we gotta work in the morning.

ACORN is a criminal organization. Its mission is to divert taxpayer money into the hands of those who do not pay taxes, badger private businesses to lend to otherwise uncreditworthy borrowers, and subvert elections to put politicians who abet their operations into power.

There is no conservative equivalent because such an organization is the polar opposite of everything conservatism is about.

We are not crooks. Collectivists organize well; see the Borg. Conservatives are individualists; we have a hard time cooperating, even with each other. See Ben Franklyn's admonition- Hang together or be hung separately!

There is no conservative equivalent because such an organization is the polar opposite of everything conservatism is about.


And this!

Raven has pretty much nailed it on this one...

Because conservatives don't want to register felons to vote?

Conservatives want to have real jobs, jobs doing something useful to humanity.

Liberals want to never have a real job, they look for: money fer nothin' and chicks fer free.

Doing something valuable to humanity is abhorrent to Liberals, this is because they hate humanity almost as much as they hate life itself.

We're all too busy earning a living to spend our days thinking up new ways to redistribute the wealth.

Thuggery, bullying, fraud, organised crime, we don`t get down like that.

Besides it wouldn`t last very long, it would be crucified by every media outlet, with non stop audits and law suits funded by Soros with the full weight of every dem politician, ACLU, NAACP, etc etc etc...

We do, we just call them militias.

Conservatives don't rally up to pass laws about leaving people alone until they are backed into a corner.

Its easier to get people excited about doing something, instead of leaving people alone.

Liberalism has always won because they are on the offensive, and Conservatism doesn't even know its at war.
