    You should have paid attention in American history, bro. You've forgotten how messy things were for us.
    Show us some docs that proves they were the same version of modern conservatives. Or, admit that it's just partisan hackery.

    Read my post again. You've failed to understand. I was quoting YOU, if you'd been around in 1776, negative Nelly.

    Those same conservatives, 1779...
    "This war has been dragging on forever, and we are getting nowhere. Houses are being burned, people are being killed, and we're running out of money. We should have stayed loyal to King George. Stupid protesters and their stupid tea parties caused this entire mess. Oh, and George Washington is a complete incompetent who doesn't know what the hell he's doing."

    Those same conservatives in 1787...
    "Well, this will never work. It's practically a military coup. You realize that George Washington isn't a politician, he's a GENERAL IN THE ARMY. WE DON'T EVEN HAVE A FORMAL CONSTITUTION YET. Rights will be trampled on! Laws will be violated! The army will be running things!"

    I'm sure glad that Apdst, Erod, Zimmer and the Prof weren't running things in the U.S. in 1776. Or, 1779. Or 1787.

    We'd all still have british accents and be paying out the ass for tea.
    I don't know why I can't thank your post, Catz, but this was ****ing AWESOME! Hilarious! The only thing is, as much as the conservatives want to support the status quo, they would have been Loyalists, the bastards.

    Historians have estimated that approximately 40–45% of the colonists actively supported the rebellion while 15–20% of the population of the thirteen colonies remained loyal to the British Crown. The remaining 35–45% attempted to remain neutral.

    At least 25,000 Loyalists fought on the side of the British. Thousands served in the Royal Navy. On land, Loyalist forces fought alongside the British in most battles in North America. Many Loyalists fought in partisan units, especially in the Southern theater.

    Correct. In a similar comparison, I found Alan Colmes repeating the same statements as Donald Rumsfeld as Defense Secretary when the first sign of lootings were occurring in post-invasion Iraq, except this time it was bashing some conservatives for being cautious this time around with Egypt. Colmes likely had no idea just how similar his statements were, and there was a great deal of jubilation, but it bears repeating. Rhetoric switches hands quite frequently in politics.

    You can also post a link to my post where I said anything remotely close to that.

    Much abliged!

    True dat. If this were occurring in 2006, the hardline conservatives would be jumping up and down and celebrating it as a victory for neo-conservativism.

    Of course, as an ACTUAL neo-conservative, I am. ^.^
