    Unfortunately for them, God's been doing a piss-poor job lately.
    Sotomayer is now a SCOTUS justice & the very few confirmation votes she got from the GOP represents the long term long term daamage that was done for the GOP's own image in the Latino community.(which is a large one & growing every election)
    The GOP knew they could not block her confirmation so to waste a number of "No" votes, all they managed to do was to anger the Latino community & drive them into the Democrat's camp........For no gain whatsoever except to again appeal to their far right, shrinking base.

    As far as God is concerned, I know for a fact that he doesn't wear a U.S. flag lapel pin.

    No......Listen to your fellow conservatives right here on this forum. ...They (WE) don't like what the GOP has become & want a new REAL conservative party that will keep religion in Church where it belongs & our tax money right here in this country....where it belongs!

    I have voted for both Republican candidates & Democrats for national office but have not voted (nationally) for a Republican since the early 1970's so I would call my party affiliation Democrat. (just like Will Rogers responded once when asked what political party he belonged to, he said: "I'm not a member of any organized political party.......I'm a Democrat.")
    Conservative first and always.

    Less you're able to spawn an actual conservative party out of it. Continuing to support the status quo won't change the status quo. It's an exercise it futility.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Socially I'm liberal but conservative in just about everything else. ( & I'm well armed & a pretty fair shot ...thanks to my Uncle!)

    Then again, I realize that some people are color blind & see the world only in strict blacks & whites.

    so REAL conservatives like you () are tired of the GOP, so you're going to vote Democrat () rather than support the GOP. out of spite? or because you think Democrats are better at responsible spending, at keeping government small? do not tell me the Democrats are more conservative than Republicans these days?

    I remember that picture. why mention it?

    a third party will take decades to grow big enough and even then it will split the conservative vote every time, for the democrats. the libertarians would be better off sticking with the GOP and using it to win themselves some elections. the GOP could use them too.

    The Dems left a big surplus & the GOP left us almost in depression with a huge deficit.

    The days of small government are permanently over so .....no matter what party is in power....forget it.
    It's 2009 not 1809.
    More conservative??....No...but the Dems. are more moderate than the far right wing GOP of today.....& I'll take moderation over extremism any day.

    I re-posted that pic to remind us all who Bush really represented........Exxon-Mobil & all his buddies in big oil.(this year the GOP represents Big Insurance. When is the GOP gonna represent us average American taxpayers??
    (how much were we paying for gasoline & home heating oil last year at this time, under the GOP??
