Creative Conservatives


Creative Conservatives

A forum for creative people who are Conservatives.

Latest Activity: Jan 12, 2013

I’m new here, so, first, let me say that if this type of group is inappropriate or somehow distracts from the overall cause of this forum, tell me and I’ll delete it.

I have watched with interest the past few weeks the scandal surrounding the National Endowment for the Arts. This, as well as many other things, makes me wonder why creativity is generally associated with liberal mindsets. I don’t believe this to be true, but it seems that is the perception of many people.

In my adventures in the blogosphere over the past few years I have encountered many highly creative people who also happen to be strong Conservatives. I’ve run into painters, sculptors, writers of fiction and poetry, musicians, as well as many others.

I am an amateur painter, primarily oil and acrylic. I write a little too. The photo on this page is one of my paintings; I just finished it last night.

My objective in establishing this group is threefold:
1. To enrich my life with other peoples art.
2. To receive some objective feedback on my work.
3. To form a coalition of Conservative artists.
If you are an artist (again, any genre) please join this group and tell me your story. I’m also very interested in seeing/hearing your work.

Hi Ivan, All.  Thought I'd join although I am not an artist myself.  My father (deceased), older brother, and older sister are all very talented painters.  My older brother is also great at carving and about every kind of craft.  They're all conservative and I was taught to appreciate that artistic creativity in all areas of life is extremely important.  With regard to communicating conservative values and principles and motivating actions; creativity of all kinds is required.

I am a very conservative Christian artist. Half my artist friends are conservative as well. The other half, well, I love them anyway and pray for them.

A little late but ...


To our Mothers



You are the foundation of civilization. You are the glue that holds
families in place. You kiss our wounded knees and mend our hurt
feelings with kind, warm words that replace despair with happiness.

You encourage us to hope and inspire us to dream. When we fall you
pick us up. When we stray you bring us in. You lift the limitations
we have for ourselves.

Your sacrifice, dedication, and hours spent toward the betterment of
our lives is the cornerstone upon which we build our future.

You soften would-be hardened hearts. Your stitch sews the fabric of
our lives. You are our moral compass, and as you go a nation follows.

Happy Mothers Day to mothers everywhere

Dear Fellow Conservatives: Too many politicans and judges are corrupt, especially

from New York State...therefore, I believe laws need to be introduced at every

level of government as a strong incentive to make legislators more "ethical."

This is why I'm for a loophole-free strong: Pension Forfieture law for Offical Misconduct. Slaps-on-the wrists does not work! I hope you agree with this

concept. Please consider it. A Movement will become necessary.

Hi Robert,
I used to do cartoons for the (Sarah Palin) team sarah website newsletter. They have quit the newsletter, but you still might be able to see the old ones on the team sarah website. Or you can probably see some of my other cartoons on my page at:
If you scroll down I have some old ones posted.
my name is Rita Welegala

I understand your point how artists and creative people like writers, poets and musicians are associated with Liberals. I think its because of the NEA and their liberal grant money which has so often gone to fund politically motivated liberal art. The transparency in this was recently exposed by PBS and the firing of Geraldo Rivera. A congressman proposed monetary cuts to PBS and conservatives are taking notice of the influence of art on cultre. For this reason I write poetry like this.

I'm an American, and I'm damn proud;

I hope you heard me, nice and loud.
I'm an American, who are we?
The same kind of people who dumped the tea.
I'm an American, and I belong;
In the land of the free, where the people are strong.
I'm an American, and I can show;
A patriotism Washington doesn't know.
I'm an American, and I'm taking a stand;
With everyone else that belongs in this land.
I'm an American, whose been pushed too far.
Dont try to call a scooter a car.
I'm an American, for all its worth;
Dont give me this crap, "Savin the Earth."
I'm an American, and I am big;
Big cars, big trucks, big homes, big rigs.
Americans are people, you havent learned yet;
We will live big, why not? We earned it.

From the mémoires - “Confessions of a Bourgeois Conservative”

So, I was at my bi-annual right-wing zealot meeting with the usual top RNC leaders, select John Birch and Thule Society members, Alexander Haig, Zbigniew Brzezinski, and the ashes of Joseph McCarthy and who but Pat Robertson (I just LOVE him, don't you) was there passing out Bibles. Of course I grabbed one but was too giddy at the time about our latest agenda to really give it a good look.

We had the usual plans on the table of how to poison more water, where to use our hurricane / earthquake / tsunami machine next, stopping all sex of course, figuring out how to steal more money for the poor, making the ozone hole bigger, you know, just the usual stuff. Plus we had our usual 'token' minorities come in for their 5 minute input before they were invited back to the lobby for more free peanuts and time-share brochures.

But what I was REALLY excited about was a new plan I'd read to be presented; blotting out the sun on anyone we don't like. Think about it, causing the entire destruction to all of our many enemies simply by using an ethylene-glycol cooled photon inversing ionic phase reversal hybrid curving thingy that we could control down to the hemorrhoid of one of your favorite love targets; animal, vegetable, or mineral.

Our dreams would come true as we'd be able to kill the vineyards in France, all the sheep in New Zealand (that would stop a lot of sex alone) since they don't like nukes, put Chavez and Castro (minus Gitmo of course) into the deep freeze, and destroy the fishing industries of all struggling countries. Our little group could put Ottawa in permanent winter, make Beijing light its city with glow worms, and have Massachusetts swimming in guano because of bat over-population. At one point I had to excuse myself because I'd creamed my $4000 Calvin Stewart jewel studded jeans over the proposal.

So there we're smack-dab in the middle of devising our project funding plan that consisted of pilfering the remaining retirement funds we'd not hit, creating new wars in order to steal more Arab oil than we already have, and releasing a new strain of viruses for which only we have the vaccines thanks to our buying all the pharmi-suidical companies, and a damn terrorist threat comes in! Some guy from Indiana (remind me to put Indiana on the 'sun block-out' list) called and said he was gonna nuke us. We had to evacuate and it literally broke my heart.

As we're running out I did notice the cleaning women going the other direction (I swear one of them looked just like Madeline Albright) and I tried to warn them but they ignored me. We're prancing nervously outside, smoking our imported beedee cigarettes made by child slavery labor in Asia lit with hundred dollar bills, anxiously waiting to get back in so we can finalize our biggest plan since mad cow disease when finally Chris Matthews strolls out of the building with his camera crew and we figure it's safe to get back in. So we get back in there and all our plans, schematics, the proto-type, everything, it's all gone. Collective right-wing fanatic despair fell across the room. Our bunker had been cleaned out by cleaning women and they didn't even bother to empty the ashtrays.

Anyway, I just opened that Bible using my flashlight to read it (I've been in the dark for the last two days for some weird reason) that my good buddy Pat gave me and lo `n behold, there it is in Verse ONE – "In the beginning Ronny Reagan created the heaven and the earth."

I KNEW it!!!
