About Us

The Conservative Tree House may be called a Last Refuge for each of us for different reasons. Whatever trail through the woods brought us here, we have shared the turmoil of storms as we have been finding our voices as individuals in this growing community

Perhaps you’ve had some truly shockingly cruel things said to you purely because you believe in limited government and fiscal conservatism. Perhaps you not only to believe that we should be self-reliant and personally responsible, but also believe that when we are allowed to depend on ourselves, we are stronger, more successful, take greater pride in ourselves and our work, and are more likely to make positive contributions to society. And then we are happier people, or at least more likely to be happier.

Which lends to the following theory: Fear is at the core of liberalism, and love/trust is at the core of conservatism. Liberalism is about control. Conservatism is about self-empowerment.

Control is a reaction to fear. Think in terms or politics and society – the fear behind liberalism is the fear that someone might withhold things (opportunities, money, whatever) from me, fear that if you live your life in a way I dislike that it might affect my life, fear that if you get that job, there will be nothing left for me. Fear that if you make tons of money, it’s means there’s less money out there for me. So people who believe in liberal ideologies seek control as a means of trying to create guarantees and safeguards against those circumstances they fear. Liberals try to control the world and people to enable their comfort and happiness. Which, as we know, is an endless quest. Trying to control others does nothing in the way of making oneself happy. By extension, voting in this mindset so that government can try to control others will also – shocking – not lead to a happier, more comfortable life.

The conservative (and moderate, independent, but for the sake of expediency, the conservative), on the other hand, relies on himself to meet his own needs. And the trade off of being free to live his life as he wishes is also understanding that he has to make peace with how you live yours. By extension, aware that he wants to be able to hold onto this liberty and freedom forever, the conservative votes accordingly, so that everyone can remain free and in charge of his or her own life.

But here’s the crucial difference, perhaps, particularly where misery on the left stems: The conservative does not worry, so to speak, about you. The conservative knows that you were born with the same access to self-love, self-empowerment, self-determination and self-reliance that we all were, no matter the circumstances into which you were born. (Think about the millions of people this country has allowed to crawl up from poverty into prosperity – the conservative KNOWS this is possible.) And the conservative believes that if you want prosperity, or a good job, or a good education, you can make it happen – but you have to work hard. The conservative hopes and intends that the free markets bring you all of the affordable and positive opportunities and resources that you need. The conservative also knows that on the other side of that hard work is great reward – material and, more importantly, emotional, spiritual and mental.

The conservative understands that not only is it a waste of time to try to control you, it’s actually impossible. Humans were born to be free. And if we put a roadblock in front of you, you’ll find another way around it. So we see attempts at control as a waste of resources, energy and time at best, and at worst, creating detrimental results that serve to hinder people’s upward mobility or teach dependence. We see much more efficiency, as well as endless opportunity, in leaving you to your own devices. And we want the same in return.

This is where democrats mis-view republicans as heartless. But really, the conservative believes that there is one and one path only to sustainable success and independence – and that is self-empowerment. All other avenues – welfare, affirmative action, housing loans you can’t actually afford – ultimately risk doing a disservice to people as they teach dependence on special circumstances, the govt, or arbitrary assistance (that can disappear tomorrow). And the real danger – they will ALWAYS backfire, and leave the recipient in equally or more dire circumstances. Any false improvement will always expire.

The conservative believes in abundance. The liberal believes in scarcity.

The conservative believes man is born free and will be who he is, no matter what arbitrary limitations or rules are put on him. The liberal believes man is perfectible, and by extension, believes a society at large is perfectible, and command and control is justified in the quest to a “perfect” utopian society. (Sounds familiar!)

The conservative tends to be more faithful – and not necessarily in God, but in the ability of the individual to find great strength in himself (or from his God) to get what he needs and to be successful. Therefore the conservative has an outlet for his fear and disappointment – trust and faith in something bigger. The liberal believes the system must be perfected in order to enable success. Therefore disappointment is channeled as anger and blame at the system. Voids are left to be filled by faith in the govt, which they surely then want to come in and “fix” things.

And therein lies the roots of love and fear respectively. For the conservative, when life presents great struggles, he knows he has the power to surmount them. Happiness stems from internal strength and perseverance. For the liberal, when life presents great struggles, the system failed, therefore they were at the mercy of a faulty system, and they believe that only when the system is fixed can their life improve. Happiness is built on systemic contingencies, which they will then seek to control or expect someone else to.

One blames himself. The other blames anyone and everyone but himself.

And there it is. There’s where the meanness comes from. The liberal ideology causes that person to cast anger at the world when things go wrong or appear “unfair.” He constantly chooses only to see the “injustices” – and that makes for a very miserable, mean, blame-casting existence.

One last point that we have seen over and over and over with many (not all) of our liberal friends: Extreme stinginess and cheapness.

In our conservative community growing up, we were always taught that you give when people are in need – make donations to the Red Cross when there’s an earthquake, donate to charity when you can afford it, etc. Even if it’s just $50 here and there – it’s the right thing to do. Conservatives see this as the responsibility that comes with gaining from the capitalistic system; if you happen to benefit greatly from the system, it’s your duty to give back.

The liberal, on the other hand, does not seem to share this same viewpoint, at least not in my experience. And perhaps think this is linked to believing in scarcity, and that your dollar comes at the cost of mine. So it seems that liberals, on some level of consciousness, feel guilty about not being voluntarily charitable. Therefore, to write off their guilt, they outsource their “generosity” to the government by voting for wealth re-distributive policies. Thus, the liberal cheats himself of the joy and addictiveness of direct generosity. (Not to mention – re distributive policies ALWAYS end up dis-empowering those who they’re meant to help.)

However each of us got here, it’s probably a fact that we have the turmoil of those storms in common, perhaps some unease that we could share and always, we also find fresh ground to cover from day to day. We’re developing valuable relationships as we trust one another in our community in the woods. The chatting in the branches encourages, strengthens and equips for some serious walking.

We think the Treehouse is a good armory for those who doing long distance walking for the sake of our nation. We hope you’ll think so, too. Find yourself a good branch….or just pull up a rock to the campfire.

    • Trayvon Scheme article released on Lucianne today is prize wining brilliant reporting, high class watch dog journalism ! Congratulations. Reading your home page definition requires me to ask, why do you call all the destructive, “fear” driven destructionists in your otherwise beautiful statement, why do you call them “liberal” ? It’s what we libertarian, free market, Austrian school advocates call ourselves, and have always called our Founding Fathers. LIBER is the Latin root word for FREEDOM. The Marxists started using the word, “liberal” in 1920 as a deceptive substitute for communism, socialism, statism, collectivism, totalitarianism, authoritarianism, ALL THE THINGS THEY ARE!
      They have always used it as FAKE ID. How else could they have made the advances towards a less free society if they had used the word Communism. Our asleep culture has given them a pass, and now good people like you still use the word, liberal, I am befinning to believe, because YOU are fearful of calling them by ALL of their true names. Just like all the well meaning dolts on Fox TV News, “fair and balanced”, There is always a socialist on any of their panels, and nobody EVER calls them a socialist or communist.
      Don’t you get it? You’re one word away from being truly effective ! (progressive, too)
      What have you got to say ?

        Ain’t this typical of the cognitive dissonance between the way that righties and lefties see each other, though? Libs always claim that conservatives are Theo-Nazis who want to enforce some (imaginary) moral theocracy on everyone. This is their perception (it’s wrong), but in actual practice, real conservatives always push for freedom within fairly broad moral constraints (murder not allowed; deal with it). Libs claim to be loose with the rules, but in actual behavior (paradoxically) they only know how to constrain freedom with more and more rules that tend to be inequitable (eat the rich, my baby has no rights). That’s the way this guy is, right? All he sees is conservatives restricting everyone, but in reality, his pResident is killing us with enviro-nazi laws, repro-rules, job-killing XOs and giveaways to everyone but normal people.

Because if you believe in evil then you are forced to be accountable for something and they don’t want to be accountable for anything of truth when it comes down to it. I can see right through these types so easily. They must counter all the good in the world to justify there posistions otherwise they might have to change or be held accountable and that will never happen because then it means their life is a lie and mistake and they are to blind and proudful to ever admit that. NOT A CHANCE! A snowball in Hell has a beeter chance at surviving than they do at admitting they are wrong. That they have made huge mistakes in their lives that has led them to DARKNESS (which they must deny in order to continue living in darkness). It is easy to say “I believe in evil” and to apply it to your daily life and life itself is another thing.

    Cultural Marxists who call themselves “liberals” to deceive other people about what is their true identity also lie about anything and everything else where they think a lie is expedient or a fear or a prejudice can be manufactured and exploited. Facts and truth is what those pinko liars can’t handle. Propaganda and demagoguery advanced by a mass media and mob psychology is what is the tool being used by pinkos whose principles are more aligned with Marx and Lenin than with Washington and Jefferson. A gang of commies has made itself front and center as an in your face America fifth column of subversives now gone wild who think it is all so “progressive” and avant garde what is the kind of corruption and tyranny that they are espousing as their Marxist ideology. The progressive communist movement has been playing that same worn out tune for years that is like round and round the mulberry bush the monkey chased the weasel until a clown like Obummer popped out like a jack in the box. That clown Obama is going to get stuffed right back into the box again and all the crank turners on that worn out tune are going to get put out of business too. All those pinkos who think America is going to be transformatively changed into some windmill powered utopia for communists, fudgepackers, and other degenerates are in for a rude awakening come November and probably sooner. Tell the would be black emperor of Ameritopia to start boxing up his belongings and preparing to move because there is about to be a decisive transformative restoration of America right back to the great country it used to be, and getiing rid of the corrupt would be emperor and empress who think they are some new elite pinko czars is a first order of business. The reality check the pinkos just got in Wisconsin is going to happen everywhere else in America too, because principled traditional Americans are going to take America back and run that “alternative” Marxist ideology out of town on a rail with tar and feathers provided by angry taxpayers if necessary. Watch and see what pissed off taxpayers do in November if not sooner. Cultural Marxists know who they are and what are their methods of propaganda used to exploit fears, prejudices, and hatreds for political purposes. The politicizing of a FL shooting incident was not done at the insistance of rational average ordinary taxpayers. Rational people never saw anything remarkable about what appears to be another ordinary self defense shooting to indicate it is any sort of race hate related crime. Evidence and facts must be ignored as less significant than the racebaiting speculations and theories of “liberals” who choose to redefine reality so a garden variety self defense shooting can be transformatively changed to fit a racist propaganda narrative supporting a subversive view that the constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms should be abolished. That is what the controversy is really about so it never had anything to do with a race hate crime at all. It is just like the fast and furious gun running and murder conspiracy scandal involving Eric Holder and Obama and the no longer hidden subversive agenda of the present corrupt administration. This controversy is more about what is going on with subversives with a Marxist agenda operating 24/7/365 in Washington DC than anything that happened on one rainy February night in Sanford FL. As for Angela Corey being a “conservative” well let nobody be deceived by another neocon fascist who lacks the honesty to call themselves what they are or tell it like it is about much else either.

  20. Interesting,… but I see some flaws in this praise of conservatism.
    – What do you mean by free : “The conservative believes man is born free and will be who he is, no matter what arbitrary limitations or rules are put on him.” ? Explain to me how someone can be free when they have no money? If they have no education, what are they free to do? If there is no choice to survive, where is the freedom? Freedom is also about possibilities, opportunities, and redistribution is actually meant to enable everyone to be free and become self-helping.
    – So, conservatism supports freedom: but… not everyone or only economic freedom: (from one of the comment about Tammy Bruce) “while I don’t understand or agree with her lifestyle” : who are you to agree or disagree with someone’s lifestyle ?
    – and about love: how helping people is about control? Yes, you can hope that everyone will help one another, spontaneously. Or you can think that one indeed wants one’s own profit first, and that another organism (state or other) can actually help. Love, from my point of view, is “helping the ones who cannot help themselves”… it’s not about fear, it’s about helping other humans. I see fear when one is afraid to have to give something, and I don’t see anything to be proud of in this. Helping is not creating a culture of dependency, it’s giving means not to be dependent.
    Thank you for your attention.

The parents pulled it off BEFORE they got the one million cash payout for losing their little boy, based on the fact that he would have been such a cash producer/worker in his adulthood, something. Ac tually, he was a gangbang trashtalker with at least 2 good buddies flashing local Miami Garden gang signs, and I think he was going for “street cred” on his blogs when he jumped GZ.
      Street cred is mandatory in the gangsta life. That’s not discussed much, and it’s really, really so interseting.

    The writers and contributors on this site are among the most level-headed, erudite and studied group I have found in my quest to find others who realize the Emporer is wearing no clothes. Reading your content the first few times made me cry with relief. Kindred spirits. Bless you all.

    A rag tag bunch they are. But I thinks with more “gravitas” than the dopey pundits would like to admit. In fact, I thinks lots are tuning in and using the CTH to find out what actual citizens may think. It is a citizens meeting house. Kine like the old time (real old time) places but in cyberspace.

    I wrote a historical novel (eBook titled Watergate Fiction) that presented a scenario of an honest (Liberal) lawyer who unwittingly looked into the conflicting facts surrounding the crime of Watergate … not the press’ obsession with the more famous cover-up. If my fictional hero was alive today, I think he would ask the following questions about a more recent unresolved crime:
    1. Who was Rachel Jeantel? She was well dressed, but obviously not traditionally employed, or a student (writing cursive) … or even an (overweight) girlfriend. And, she bragged about how no one would mess with her … and was comfortable with “whoop-ass” retribution. And yet, she could spend hours on a phone of a drug using, recently evicted young stud name Trayvon.
    My fictional hero would be looking for a DEA Haitian/Miami drug smuggling operation. He would be looking for a NSA tape of a conversation (three way?) between a (recently abandoned) user/recruit and a deep voiced young woman who lived (went to kindergarten?) in Trayvon Martin cousin’s neighborhood.
    2. He would find a disgruntled Sanford cop (who was still mad at being called a racist) and have him review the street camera footage on the night of Zimmerman’s “shooting” and see if a couple of young drug runners were driving back and forth from a 7/11 meeting with “Three Amigos”.
    3. Then he would track down the Amigo’s credit card and lean on these would-be pot buyers (involved in a felony which resulted in a death) … to find out in what direction their Haitian/Miami dealers drove away from the 7/11 to access a pot stash (and thus have their phone ping from another tower) before they came in the “back gate” then went to the “cut-thru” to wait for the 3 Amigos’ car (that is recorded on the police’s street camera footage).
    That’s what he’d do. But then … he’s fictional.

    I have read through Dorian’s interview with Fazal a couple of times and I assume that no one finds Dorian credible but that he is simply a useful tool for the racial discourse beneficiaries such as Sharpton, Jackson and Crump.

    And why the heck is Dorian blaming the riots and looting on the store owners in the neighborhood rather than his toxic words that enflamed a community ? Does anyone know if he had a job before all this started? He said he had to work outside the neighborhood because the local storer owners won’t hire anyone from the area. How easy is that fact for a “journalist” to check?

    Maybe he is feeling a bit of guilt over what has happened since he jumped on the gentle giant wagon and got the riots rolling so he is absolving himself from being the epicenter of the storm.

    It is also my perception that Dorian, at the point of this interview anyhow, sees this whole episode as the gravy train to riches. So many curious word choices, “ shaking, nervous, had to move, lost my apartment, horrific situation, ect. ” And these two sentence’s in particular; “Because after this is done, I
    still have to go on living. That’s the make focus, even though I know the horrific situation that is going on, I still have to provide life because I still have life to look over.”

    Simply screams civil lawsuit to me.

    Does anyone know when the interview took place, (sorry I can’t find a date on the piece.) As Dorian seems to be setting up a scenario of how his bracelet could have wound up by Officer Wilson’s car.

    So the officer is trying to pull him in, and he is pulling away from the officer. I am standing not feet away, not even inches away, an inch away from everything that is happening while it’s happening.

    Something else that Dorian says that I find curious is this,

    He never once attempted to hit the officer or pull the officer
    out of the car like the officer was trying to pull him inside the car.

    I find the bolded part interesting, perhaps a freudian slip, as I personally hadn’t thought that the gentle giant was trying to pull Officer Wilson through the window, I just thought what an absurd and fanciful notion that an officer of the law would try to pull a 300 pound man through a window but perhaps the “through the window” attempt was happening only it was the gentle giant that was dull enough to think he could pull officer Wilson through the window and access his gun.

    Just some thoughts :)

    And what a sane site you have here.
