I would say we're pro use of the environment.
How do you explain Condoleeza Rice?
Sexual freedom? Is this 1969? The war is over, HIV won. Keep it zipped for you own good.
Jim, you argue for argument's sake, not to learn or teach, or even to be understood. Not all ideas are "time-tested and/or proven". Science is based on theory, isn't it...and isn't science often progress? Wasn't America itself once thought of as an experiment in new government?
Libertarians want freedom for morality-laws. I still say both the right and the left wanna pass to many rules to take away freedom. Sure, most of those laws from the right are from religious folks, but not all.
I have had it zipped up for over 10 years. But I believe in FREEDOM, for others as well as myself. If you make a mistake, suffer the consequences...pay the medical bill,ect.
I don't like your smart-ass way of dealing with people. You aren't using REASON, just negativity and wise-cracks.
Modern American Liberals are the thin pink line, keeping the Christian Militarist Conservatives from taking over. You should be nice to us. I like Oreos.
Nice turn of a phrase. Unfortunately, liberals are the broad soft pink stripe of neo-communism. Read the paper. Watch the news. There they are. Little idiot apparatchiks protesting to destroy virtually everything that the country was founded upon. All at the behest of puppeteer Grorge Soros, the CPUSA and many others.
If you don't like the country move, or take your peoples revolution to the streets with the thugs. And when you come for all I've worked for, I'll shoot you in a heartbeat and enjoy it.
Well, that's just not very nice.
Tell you what, I think I'll leave you alone. I've learned as much as I need to about the unique perspective of Atheist Conservatives. Have fun in your bunker.
What is not nice is communism and its soft, falsely moralistic precursors. It has slaughtered or starved more people than any forms of governance on earth combined.
If that requires me to be prepared to be not nice in defense of my family and property (both targets of communism), I will then become not nice.
For the record, I heard two liberals at lunch utter the words civil war in reference to our current situation and I hadn't spoken a syllable.
My mentality is not the problem. Reality is the problem.
Andrew, I feel like I'm being bullied by two street gangs and can't move on home (a safe place)...both liberals and many of the Conservatives, again, mostly Christian/religious, are the gangs. I don't like liberals, I resent them. Can't a person just be left alone to do as one pleases, as long as others aren't hurt?
Not so. Conservatives believe common sense is common because it's part of our traditions.
Yet again. My guys Jefferson, Adams (successful defender of the "Boston Massacre" defendants, 1770), Franklin, Madison et. al. Conservatives by most any standard, defended by famous British conservative Edmund Burke, all for individual rights and freedoms excepting for those freedoms infringing on the rights of others.
Yeah, we're dangerous oppressors alright. Really scary huh?
Put down the Robert Dahl and Noam Chomsky and smell the coffee. Tiresome.
Yes, but - Modern American Conservatives tend away from the classical definitions. They generally favor radical change to the right:
I think Mr. Franklin would be appalled.
