    I am often stunned that cons can win as often as they do, considering the liberal predominence in the public schools and pop culture.
    That you definitely did sir! Thanks!
    Your hyperbole was so thick I thought you might even be attempting to be sarcastic.

    Your opinion is noted but the fact remains cons out number libs

    To become conservative, you have to question the popular notions. In any given group of people at work or at school, the majority is likely to parrot the lib lines. Cons are often few in number in such groups, or all alone. Takes a little nerve.
    By your post, I see brainwashing is alive and well. Apparently you don't mind owing your soul to a political establishment who doesn't give a rats ass about you...as a conservative or anything else. You don't see conservatives in Washington begging you to take back your hard earned tax payments do you? You don't see government growing smaller do you?

    They have you right where they want most people, regardless of their political affiliations or philosophies. Keep on payin da man, he loves your money. The Kingdom of Washington is an expensive place to keep up...and the serfs need to keep those tax dollars rolling in.

    Thanks, Mind. Good to know. I'll be careful. (Though I would have thought you saw that brainwashing was alive and well prior to my post.That was kinda why I posted.)

    Cons may vote more than, what shall we call them? "default" libs, but I don't believe we outnumber them in the populace. I am thankful that many of them are inactive politically, civically lazy and generally incurious

Now he said we don't even see each other outside the Halls." I think there needs to be a push for middle ground (common sense?) that is beyond political idealism.
    You miss the days when Republicans behaved like good little chumps and cons worried about flouride in the water.

    I think you are pretty much right about the tendencies that the media, schools, establishment and so forth tend to encourage. I see this in Britain and Australia, to an even greater degree, all the time. But it differs on the issues. On social and cultural issues there the normal ways of thinking these institutions support tend to discourage any sort of traditional and conservative tendencies. This is less so on other issues, like economics.

    your "belief" has no impact on the facts, this does nothing to change the FACT that there are more Cons than Libs

    This forum is conservative leaning for sure, but unlike other forums I've been on, freedom of speech is relatively more in tact so conservatives don't get a protective firewall from the mods.

    But yes, it's definitely more conservative here.

    May I ask, OT, what are your thoughts on the question of maintaining the Electoral College vs election of POTUS by popular vote?

    No hidden meanings here. Just curious what an independent who believes cons are a majority thinks about this. Thanks in advance.
