Summing up Why I'm a Tory

I love this quote - It's why I'm a Tory. Vote for Ed and his brand of socialism at our peril. 

'Making the rich poorer does not make the poor richer, but it does make the state stronger—and it does increase the power of officials and politicians, power more menacing, more permanent and less useful than market power within the rule of law. 

Inequality of income can only be eliminated at the cost of freedom. The pursuit of income equality will turn this country into a totalitarian slum.'

Keith Joseph, Stranded on the Middle Ground? Reflections on Circumstances and Policies (Centre for Policy Studies, 1976).

And I'll ask;-

What value do you hold higher, Freedom or Equality (of outcome)? 

 We can still have Equality of Opportunity AND Freedom - 
and that's not Labour values - That is Conservative values that I share.

That's why I have always been a Tory, always will be a Tory 
and I will do my best to make others understand the difference.
