    It seems MOST of America feels just this way about Republicans and Conservatives, as their votes illustrate. So, if each side got their wish all the Conservatives would be gone with nothing but Dems left.
    Even liberal California voted conservative when they were able to do so based on issues. And by "most", I assume that you meant the percentage who voted for Obama, which was about 51%. So if y'all want to come after the remainder, then by all means bring it on. After all, we've got the guns.

    Umm, no. It seems that MOST of America feels that voting for the leader of their nation is like voting for their top pick in American Idol as their interviews and votes illustrate.

    Yep, they know Palin had six-figures in clothes purchased (but not that the RNC purchased them), yet the cult followers have little idea what "Change" and "Hope" mean, and that "Unity" means compliance for the greater socialist good.

    Only through ignorance can you piss away the foundation of the greatest country known to mankind.

    53% ensured we will be pissing non-stop downwind. Problem is the ocean of urine waiting to be cleaned up when this socialist skit comes to an end.

    Re: Gregg withdraws as commerce secretary nominee

    I think you guys are missing the most unusual part of this.

    They moved they census from the commerce department to the white house.

    The census helps decide if we new voting districts.

    Just my speculation, but maybe the Obama team will muddle the census to gain more power for Democrats. Gregg may not have wanted to have anything to do with that.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I thought the census issue was more an issue of deciding how to count resident and illegal aliens.

    Counting illegal aliens would be wrong in my opinion, but from what I've heard is that they may be guesstimating to increase the number of potential Democrat voters.

    I think, generally, illegals would fall into that bracket as well.

Social Conservatives and Fiscal (original) Conservatives are in no way similar. Social conservatives want to CHANGE THE CONSTITUTION to not allow gay marriage. That is so far against what the conservative movement is that they should be disgusted.
    Affiant further sayeth not.

    No. Conservatives believe marriage should be between a man and a woman.
    I don't know of gay marriage being any societal norm anywhere in the world.
    And where will you draw the line?
    Where?

    Right now it's drawn on simple lines that date back a few years and through all societies.

    The whiners about Reagan conservatives has proven to be a flop.
    We just had Thee Moderate Maverick and look what happened!
    And against who? An absolute light weight Marxist.

    No, the party went to Palin, a Reaganite, to get the party fired up.

    This is a hilarious post!

    Left handedness isn't a societal norm.

    Palin a Reaganite?
