Green Conservative Movement
There is a fundamental need for a conservative green movement. Many conservatives have supported green concepts and principles, but have been outspoken by the conservative branch that is anti environment and irrationally pro deregulated businesses.
Green conservative values are rooted in reasonable beliefs about social responsibility, fiscal discipline, environmental conservation, and individual rights and responsibilities.
Green values are:
1) Reason over fear.
2) Logic over ignorance.
3) Unity over fragmentation.
4) Order over confusion.
5) Discernment over misinformation.
The basic values of green conservative are more practical than ideological in policy making, because ideology often falls short of the demands of reality.
