Our desire to promote our own welfare makes conservatism possible. Other people’s desire to promote their own welfare at our expense is what makes it necessary. Even if it was true that conservative policy encouraged selfish choices, it is still the best way to protect your family from the dangers of an uncertain future.

Our desire to promote everyone's opportunity to succeed in a free market, favoring free enterprise, private property ownership is the foundation of conservatism.

Conservatism is not selfish, on the contrary. What is more generous, selfless and benevolent than an environment designed to support the success of all?

Selfishness is more commonly found on the progressive end of the stick. Envy of success, a belief that existence alone is a right to a share of what everybody else has earned.
