Scripture's Defense of Conservatism

Isaiah 10:1

1 Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees:
Definition: Righteous: Morally upright according to the Lord's commandments, without sin or guilt.
Translation: I will not tolerate those who pass laws to mandate public funding of abortions, hate crimes laws, eminent domain laws, laws in sympathy of criminals (Miranda rights, etc.), laws to squelch prayer while promoting condom use.

2 Who write misfortune
Definition: Misfortune: The condition resulting from bad economic policy
Translation: Those who support socialism and the abolishment of private property, minimum wage, labor unions, laws like the card-check pro-union act, big government policies, government price fixing, lack of transparency of the federal reserve, protectionist trade policies, higher tax laws, reckless spending bills, and universal health care

3 Which they have prescribed to rob the needy of justice
Definition: Justice: Upholding what is just. Fair treatment and due reward in accordance with honor, standards, or law
Translation: Proponents of the welfare state, frivolous lawyer lawsuits, a living constitution, a weak national defense, COMMUNISM, Fascist and totalitarian dictators, reading Miranda rights to prisoners and letting Scot free the terrorists from Guantanamo Bay, propagating victim ideology among the poor and need, and opponents of giving the poor a hand out rather than a hand up.

There, in just one verse from the Bible we find full explanation for all the principles we hold to be true as conservatism. This is why I find Liberal views and Christ irreconcilable.

What say you? Am I missing something here?
