proud Republican blindly support that shyte.
Well, it seems there's no convincing you. I have done my research. I learned about all this stuff in school. The republicans' ideals of today are
pretty much the same ideals they had all along. I've only really been into politics for a little over a year now. I used to be liberal, but sort of
switched over when I started studying the ideals of the parties. I'm 17, so like I said we've been learning about these things this year and last
year. I know I'm pretty young, but I've done my research. By the way, thanks for the "blindly" remark. Typical, and another tactic of the left
that I see in you. You're not wrong, I'm just "blind" -_-.
You got it backwards, grasshoppa. I voted for Bush in 2000, when he was talkin' the ol' Conservative Republican line. Since you were sleeping in
class, I'll let you in on what you missed. The Neo Conservative Cabal ushered in by Cheney, who is actually your president, hijacked the agenda. NEO
CONSERVATIVES are NOT CONSERVATIVE and they're NOT Republican. Do yourself a favor and read up on it.
I have read up on it, and they are conservatives. They've done a few things that make them seem more liberal, but overall they're still
republicans. What about Bush makes you view him as a liberal? The war? Would a liberal have taken action in Iraq and Afghanistan? Is it that he
lowered taxes? Is it that he's for the 2nd ammendment (In the way that you listed)? What has he done to make the govt. bigger? I'm against the
patriot act, so don't bother starting that argument. Canada has a bill that's very similar to the Patriot act! Are they neo-cons too?
Run a search. That's easy enuff. I've posted views on many subjects. If you're too lazy to do that here's a brief run-down of some of my
I support the 2nd ammendment (gun control)
lower taxes (when not at war)
SMALLER government (something this administration doesn't know ANYTHING about)
STrong national DEFENSE
stronger enforcement of laws pertaining to illegal immigrants
I could go on, but that's quite enuff for now.
Like I posted below, what makes you think Bush is against all of those things? His temporary work-visa solution might seem liberal to you. Is that
it? I think the work visa thing is a good idea though. Am I a neo-con now? And please go into detail on what you mean by making the government
smaller, and tell me why you think Bush has violated that.
I will stand up for whatever Republican has the balls to stand up for what's right. Like Texas Congressman Ron Paul. If you want to know what
a REAL Republican is, do some research on him. It will be well worth your time.
Maybe I will.
Why? Because they're completely brainwashed/intellectually/educationally deficient. I not-so-lovingly refer to them as the Stepford
hahaha. Of course, yet another tactic invented by the left. The great majority of the other republicans are just brainwashed or stupid? You've
somehow risen above all of them and are one of the few who's gotten it right? This course of logic really makes me mad. Saying that everyone else
is just brainwashed because they don't agree with you.
