I would appear from posting on numerous different political threads and conversing with numerous members, that ATS has a definitive left wing slant
politically. There may be any number of Conservative Members out there, but they either remain silent or become silent after being bombarded by the
left's defamation of their core beliefs and character.
Is it that the Liberals are more outspoken, or that the Conservatives are just tired of the same old lines being attached to their opinions? The
attacks I have witnessed are derogatory and inflaming at most and vicious and untrue at the least. Does all of this stem from the incredible and
unexplainable hatred for President Bush or a hate for all things conservative?
Being a conservative in today’s atmosphere is challenging, yet how can any American watch the Liberals scream, Dean, and rant, Gore, and use
language such as Traitor, War Criminal and Dictator to describe our President and not attempt to defend someone so very downtrodden?
All of these questions beg for answers and if possible, to meliorate the entire situation. A little over six years ago we were all privy to a
president that did more to lower the respect and prestige of the office of President then any in history. We all became the laughing stock of the
entire world as he struggled to define the meaning of the word “Is.” We all suffered through as he explained that oral sex was not adultery. We
all watched as the three major news agencies accepted and defended this, wondering what has happened to our country. President Bush has been
criminalized for what? Reading a book to some children PRIOR to the events of 9/11. The fact that he is not psychic eliminates his ability to have
foreseen the event, yet some criticize his actions on that day to the rest of our bewilderment. How about the Iraq war? Reading and rereading the
speeches leading up to the war, it is profoundly apparent that WMD’s were only a minor concern, that the violations of the UN sanctions and the
crimes against humanity were the actions that precipitated President Bush’s actions and the subsequent invasion. Still other supposedly intelligent
minds, read into his speeches that what they wish to hear and not the truth of the actual words.
I can not defend, nor will I attempt to, the President’s actions on immigration. I will simply state that the issue is not as simple as some I have
spoken with assume it to be. No one I have talked with, or heard has been able to completely justify a position on “shipping the Illegal’s out,
rounding them up or sealing the borders.” We all want action, but do not wish to pay the taxes necessary to implement any of the proposed solutions.
The hiring alone of enough Border Patrol agents to do any of those things, is in the billions of dollars. When it is proposed to put combat troop, not
National Guard, on the border, (which I am opposed to) then either pose comitatus comes into play, or the radical xenophobes scream YES. It is more
and more becoming a lose-lose situation for the President.
So the President authorizes the interception and monitoring of overseas phone conversations that have key words and indications of terrorist
connections. Had the President not done this and failed to prevent another attack such as 9/11, then all of the liberals would be screaming bloody
murder that he was not doing his job. Somewhere, sometime, the Liberals need to understand that you can not have it both ways. Of course they never
will, they simply want anything to complain about, any talking points to throw out in condemnation to this current President. The very nature of their
inability to debate on this forum or in any public venue is very indicative of the emotional nature of their argument and not the substance of their
In that line the question begs as to why they can not argue their points without emotional outburst, screaming and passionate kissing in public. In
debate class we learn first, that to properly debate and “get” our point across we must remain dispassionate and removed. This has escaped the
liberals at some point and continues to elude them. Liberals use fear tactics, out of context quoting and the passionate, emotional outburst to send
their message to the public. They scare the seniors with threats of losing the social security through privatization, which is of course completely
false, they use edited films from Iraq to show supposed abuse by the military and even atrocities and of course all of this is put right in the
President’s lap even though congress voted (including Dems) in support of the war there.
Conservative Republican’s are not without fault, not by a long shot, but we have no Senators that while driving drunk killed a woman that I know of.
And you keep electing him. Maybe you should try looking to your own housekeeping if you intend on winning any elections.
That is the “rub” anyway. You lost and you lost big. Now you’re desperate to get any power back that you can. So your tactics are to discredit
and defame Republicans as much as you can until the American Public begins to swallow all of the garbage you are forcing down their throats.
Well, if you get your Democratic president, and the country goes back into the darkness then I guess I can say, “I told you so.”
