A closed answer to liberals: Politics makes strange mirrors, mummies, and merry-go-rounds.
All I can say is "Ouch."
No compromise with liberalism! It condemns itself with satire.
One of the most worst things that the conservatives could possibly do would be to become a more liberal group that adopts and accepts any of the socialist, liberal politics of the Dems. If anything the conservative party needs to recommit themselves to an even more conservative slant in economical, domestic, and international policy. I think that both parties have lost touch with the common man and just how conservative mainstream America really is. And another thing, I get sick and tired of being accused of being motivated by fear and racism!
Well MP, not too many of the republican posters want to touch this, and I don't blame them! :laugh:
Nah, likely just realize the linked article will be lame and didn't bother to click it. :thumbs:
Blah, blah, blah..... There's 10 minutes of my life I'll never get back.
The writer asserts as fact:
Now follow the link offered as evidence:
One Justice Department lawyer answering hypothetical questions has nothing to do with conservatism. Hyperbole on top of hyperbole. Dick Cheney's darkest fantasy is to torture a child and crush his testicles? This article should be disassembled and the letters and punctuation recycled into something more intelligent.
What's with this "reponsible choices is important to democracy" crap then making statements "You can't....."? Who is your paragon of responsible choices? The Chappaquiddick Chump?
Sorry, but when the very first thing he leads off with is accusing us of racism, that's when I invoke the Proverbs 26:4 rule.
It's a shame that liberals have been so badly whippped that they don't even try to engage us on issues anymore. They just go right to the name calling and stupid false accusations.
Hit a nerve, I see! :laugh:
It's posted so people will respond. But when people respond to the letter, it's because the letter hit a nerve. But if conservatives don't respond it's because they have no answer.
That's the only way they can win a debate.
No, no nerve hitting. Just a profound sense of sadness for those on the left that this is now what constitutes "intelligent" political discourse on their part.
Not even once did the blogger try to engage conservatives on an issue. He never explains why he believes our belief in the principles of limited government, individual liberties, holding politicians accountable, not leaving our children the legacy of an insurmountable debt, etc is bad or tries to correct us. He never even challenges us to explain ourselves or defend our beliefs. He just starts right in calling us racists and making a lot of silly false accusations.
To the liberal mind, that's a rational argument against those things. Liberals actually believe those things give them credibility. But they don't. They just make liberals appear foolish and not worth responding to.
If you really want to "hit a nerve", then explain to us (without calling names, without accusing us of racism, wanting to starve the poor, kill the elderly, etc, and by providing evidence to back up your claims) why you believe the principles we believe in are wrong.
Explain to us why you believe that government is better suited to control our decisions than we are. Explain to us where you think we went wrong by not wanting to leave our children a debt that will cripple them. Tell us why we're wrong about the 10th Amendment.
I have seen several of your posts praising the recent Republican actions of the last decade which tells me you have a very liberal, anti-Constitutional mindset. Bush, Republican, Cheney, and the Republican Congress of last decade are not synonyms for conservative or Constitutional government.
Best post of the thread. You are absolutely correct. Both parties have lost touch, not only with the common man, but the Constitution, and conservative principles. One thing to remember, do not worry about anyone who accuses you of being movtivated by fear and racism. Most on this board operate out of the mindset that there is a difference between the two parties, which there is not. You have great insight into this issue, leaving the others in the dust clueless, as their posts reflect.
Obviously, you have me confused with someone else. Not only am I not a Republican, I have been a very consistent and very vocal critic of the Republican party.
About the only "Republican action" that I know of that I have defended in years is their decision to vote as a block against the takeover of the healthcare industry and I find it difficult to imagine how anyone can call that a "very liberal, anti-Constitutional mindset".
By the way, you might also be interested to know that I've been a huge supporter of Rand Paul, someone who you claimed in another thread to also support.
I owe you an apology, as I had you mixed up with someone else. The prevailing view on this board is that the previous Republican administration was conservative, which is hog wash. Yes, I agree about Rand Paul, in fact, I have a campaign sign in my front yard right now.
Again, my apologies. I have not been on the board lately, and it will take a while to catch up on everyone again since the operation.
