    How about 2005, 2006 or 2007? When Bush was actually in office? Because I know my history of pointing out GOP hypocrisy dates back to when most people did not even have the Internet. Did it really take you until May 2009?
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    To ask for an official change in a user group, yes, but I'm not the first one who's asked for that, either. I'm probably just the first one who asked through a thread instead of a PM to the Admin.

    To observe that Conservatives had left the GOP? No, that line was crossed when Bush wanted to create the Department of Homeland Security.

    So, when a Conservative gives a Conservative view, it's safer to assume they're Libertarian than Republican, but safer still is not to assume they speak for a party at all.

    That may be true of you, but I'm no novice on political boards. Most people still drink the Kool Aid. But yes, many conservatives have gotten frustrated. But most, including Rush, haven't left the party. Hell, Rush IS the party.

    Libertarians care far more about liberty than Conservatives do. The two may agree on a great many fiscal issues, but Libertarians lack that special "we know better than you what's good for you" streak conservatives tend to have.

    I know we pay for welfare but unemployment insurance is paid by the employer. No? The more your employees wind up unemployed the higher your rate.

    Government revenues are a function of GDP. So we should do what is necessary to increase GDP.

    I can't really cut any spending because it will make my constituents mad at me.

    Not with immature quips like that, no, now we're going to discuss why you couldn't refrain from flaming a couple people who were discussing a relevant tangent

    You know, I am not 100 % sure. I am pretty sure it costs the government money, will try and confirm.

    When Libertarians drop the whole "legalize all hard drug for recreational use" and "legalize prostitution" gigs, then and only then will I hear smack about Conservative _v_ Libertarian.
