It's a Wonderful Conservative Life!

The holiday season is not complete without another screening of Frank Capra's Classic movie, "It's a Wonderful Life."  This movie is a truly wonderful conservative movie on several different levels.

First, it focuses on the critical importance of the human individual.  Jimmy Stewart's George Bailey character learns what a tremendous difference he has made in the lives of so many different individuals in his community.  Its is the individual that has the power to alter and improve his society.

Second, "It's a Wonderful Life" is the ultimate Pro-life movie.  It celebrates and affirms the value of human life.  It also celebrates and honors the family.

Finally, it presents a main street business (the building and loan) that helps the lives of the whole community in a very positive light.  The Occupy Wall crowd street sees all businessmen as Potters building grubby Pottervilles, but this movie shows that it is the building in loans of the world that have built this country and enabled the American dream.
