WHY I'M CONSERVATIVE, NOT LIBERTARIAN
A quick little post on conservatism makes the case for conservatism and family very well:
No free society has ever existed that was constituted primarily of individuals pursuing their own interests as isolated individuals. It is stable, successful families, and communities of families, that make a free society possible. The only real world alternative to a society built upon the state, is a society built upon the family.
I recommend the whole piece.
