Now the 9th Circuit ruling has come down likely extending SSM across another swathe of states. The end of this debate, at least at a practical level, is close at hand.

Was it a republican that spewed DOMA?
Was it republicans that mourned the loss of former KKK member and Dixicrat Strom Thurmond who only flipped republican because he thought his once racist party was pandering to minorities?
Sorry to tell you that republicans hated that guy and democrats loved him - that alone shows how ****ed up politics really are.
Oh and BTW, nothing I say is "false" you just want to believe what you think is true..
"We need to ask some very tough questions of the senator from Illinois. It's not enough to be black, it's not enough to be articulate, it's not enough to be eloquent and a media darling. The only question will be how deaf an ear, or how blind an eye will people turn in order to turn a frog into a prince." -Eddie Huff
And when it came to Reagan on gun control or Bush Jr with the Patriot Act, you have to take into consideration the context of the times. Drug crime was rampant back in the 80's and there was a call to action. After 9/11 where 3000 people died due to 19 hijackers on airplanes, there was a call to action. This is probably where Libertarians and Conservatives differ come to think of it; Conservatives are willing to expand the government in the event of national emergencies, where Libertarians are not as knee jerky.
I'll be honest, I didn't know of the Cap and Trade thing though, glad it wasn't passed.
U.S. justice temporarily blocks Idaho gay marriage ruling
Kennedy issues a stay pending cert? What the hell, guy? You just ****ing ruled on a case like this. Are you really telling me there is a reasonable expectation that SCOTUS will hear the Idaho case when they just rejected all the others?
Go home, SCOTUS, you're drunk.

Again, you equate Dem to liberal. The fact is those that were FOR slavery were CONSERVATIVES and those that were against it were liberal. Conservatives want things to remain the same and liberals were the ones fighting to change that. You think EVERYTHING liberal is bad, it isn't. Liberalism is what got women the right to vote, ended slavery, etc. Those were all the things people that were conservative wanted to keep the same.However, I don't think conservatives would really try to force their ideology on you unless the ideas were outlined in the constitution, besides it's not like nutty conservatives have ever been able to actually legislate their authoritarian ideas - most of which are religious related.... However democrats have been legislating their moonbat authoritarian rule at the sate and even federal level for the past 150 years..... Lets not forget who the lynchers were, lets not forget the dems that ignored the Bill of Rights and skipped due process just to lynch a man - lets not forget how religiously fanatical democrats were in the south and even created "dry" counties and forbid the sale of liquor on Sundays because they were Baptists - and now for some strange reason democrats and progressives have the audacity to blame their screwed up behavior on republicans and conservatives. Of course lets not least forget about segregation..
Sure you could, but that doesn't change the fact that liberal does not mean Dem all the time.I could write a book on how screwed up the democrat party was between 1870 and the present and how they love to blame their past on republicans - the real "social justice" warriors and how democrats did everything in their power to block every attempt they made at racial and gender equality..
Absolutely which is why I think BOTH conservatism and liberalism is needed.Sorry but progress can be good and bad.
