    How much more grey heroin do we need? The Socialists never say... and it seems they want more.

    And what about Obama the Contortionist? Bending over... ROTFLOL ... backwards... for who? Iran?
    Socialist. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    You must try harder and not rely on lame photos.
    If I don't use "Socialist" in the correct context, deconstruct it.

    ROTFLOL... you know, use your brain.

    Well then you should make sure you avoid ever reading the social science or the stats, because that would risk your life.

    I guess Jesus had it all wrong when he told us to take care of the poor - he should have told us, don't help them, because you make them dependent.
    Not at all. Jesus and the New Testament paint a wise and Godly approach to Charity - with defined lines drawn between that which is Gods and that which is Caesars. Where liberals get this wrong is that they appear to be incapable of imagining social action taking place outside of the federal government.

But here you go.

    1. Staying free of foreign alliances and entanglements, basically isolationism. But this does not mean being a pasifist. A tradidtional conservative would go to war if our national security is threaten or in case of a foreign invasion.
    2. Fiscal Responsibility - This means more than just low taxes. It means a balance budget where spending matches revenues. I one has to rasie taxes to accomplish the balance, fine. If one has to cut spending to obtain the balance between spending and revenue, fine, do it. Or it could be a combination of both. But the bottom line is the balance, spending matching revenues.
    3. Small Government - A government that stays out of a citizens private business and lives.

    The so called conservatives of today fail all three tenets of a traditional conservative. The last ture traditional conservative pressident was Calvin Coolidge.
    I don't think that is what he means by "conservative." Using the terms like "conservative" and "liberal" to me doesn't make a lot of sense as most people are conservative on some things and liberal on others.

    I do like how your three tenants don't foray into the convoluted world of social issues...which is where I think the Republicans need to stay out of in order to be viable in the future.

    [QUOTE=zimmer;1062524647]

    ROTFLOL... I did say she wasn't a Conservative. She often sounded like a RINO. She embraced Socialism now and then. hence... not a Conservative. I'm happy she was honest about it and realized it. No crime there. I respect honesty, that's why I like Kucinich. I diagree with him, think his politics are moon bat, but he IS HONEST ABOUT THEM. Something most with a D beside their name aren't.

    Now... good try, but go back and read what I wrote... I do believe I wrote... "We all won't agree on everything, but there is enough that binds; Limited Government, Low Taxes, Liberty, Equality under the law, strong national defense, secure borders. The difference is how to achieve it, and how to defeat The Socialists and their perverted ideology."

    Nothing radical there. Just following the Constitution. Believing in Limited Government.
    I would define her as somewhat right of center - noting the center has moved to the left. But I suppose she can bandy over what words do and don't attach to her, huh?

    Actually, the third tenet is the one that says keep government out of social issues by stating private business and lives. The rise of the religious right in the late 70's early 80's put a mockery to the third tenet for conservatives as they wanted to use government to legislate their religious values on the rest of the nation. This is more statist and less small government.

    Now if you look at most independents who do not affiliate themselves with the two major parties, most of them are fiscal conservative or should I say for fiscal responsibility and are socially liberal. Let the women choose when it comes to abortion etc. But are for a balanced budget where spending matches revenues and most believe it will take both an increase in taxes and cuts in spending to accomplish that. So as far as I am concerned, the terms conservative and liberal has changed so much that today they really do not mean much if anything. It nothing but a label attached to the two parties by themselves and the media when if the true meanings of each were applied, neither would be conservative or liberal.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
