Just look at the symptoms:

1. Hatred towards others who express different Viewpoints
2. Willingness to gather in large groups to shout down and verbally abuse elected representatives.
3. Paranoia that our government is run by communists because of artwork on buildings that Capitalists built
4. Banding together to make tea producers wealthy
5. Compulsive purchasing of weapons and ammunition.
6. Fear that free Medical help for everyone is subverting Democracy
7. Fear that upholding personal freedoms are socialistic.
8. Believing that Commentators are News Journalists.
9. Believing that a Blackman in the White House is Un-American and against American beliefs
10. Starting Wars based on lies to enrich the lives of the wealthy is best for America
11. Thinking that allowing the government to spy on its citizens means Freedom for All
12. Believing that the only way to cure Neo-Conservatism is to allow a public option health care system.
13. Believing that Corporations care about and are working for the best interests of All Americans.
14. Believe the banking crisis was started by Obama
15. Believe that republican administration would Never Ever Lie to them
16. Thinking that there is too much education in America and that Education is fundamentally Wrong!
17. Thinking that God supports hatred and wars and stupidity.
18. A belief that God put male pages in the capital building for republican personal satisfaction
19. Calling for a Coup and killing our elected officials is what America stands for.
20. Believe that W. honestly and truly cared for them.

These are just to name a few.

If you exhibit any of these symptoms there is hope for you, however if you exhibit 5 or more these symptoms the only cure for you is Obama's health care plan - the one that allows the federal government to assist in your funeral expenses.

Yup. This:


Neoconservatism is a political philosophy that emerged in the United States of America, and which supports using American economic and military power to bring liberalism, democracy, and human rights to other countries.[1][2][3] In economics, unlike traditionalist conservatives, neoconservatives are generally comfortable with a welfare state; and, while rhetorically supportive of free markets, they are willing to interfere for overriding social purposes.


is messed up stuff.

It's a good thing neither Obama or Biden fit this description in any way. Yup, totally different from those last two buffoons.

Neo-conservatism is just a new aged term for the same old socialism. What marks the leadership of the "neo-con" movement is their ingenious incorporation of Leninist principles, namely that of leading the opposition. Any conservative who believes the neo-conservative is a new and improved version of conservatism deserves to be led down the road they are spiraling down on. What is interesting and even compelling is the smugness of those who compulsively compile lists that describe their own views of those they oppose and pass it off as their opponents view and amusingly attack their opponents compulsiveness while embracing their own.

Mask it all you want with calling and linking it to "conservatism", it's nothing of the sort. It's closer linked to lefts ideologies as the last couple of posters have pointed out..

Lucky, like the far left, these groups only make up a small fraction of the population but as we have seem as of late can get a hold of power and cuase some damage..

Good call though OP, anything derived from the left is most certainly a mental disease

I'm not a big fan of the whole neo-conservative, aka Republican socialist movement, but this just reeks of propoganda lifted from some left wing site. In their defense, however, I'll just say this, and it applies to almost everyone who is going to reply to this thread:

Those people that you're calling crazy? They think you're crazy, too.

Threads like this one are what's wrong with this site. Its nothing more than political baiting.

Yep how many democratic presidents are of the wall too. Obama blows up weddings, and carter was in when usa trained bin laden.

So cut of the left right rubbish, your both ruining the country.

Study One:

Political Views May Be Genetically Influenced, Twin Study Shows "Research by Rice University professor of political science John Alford indicates that what is on one's mind about politics may be influenced by how people are wired genetically."www.sciencedaily.com...


Study Two:

When morality opposes justice: Conservatives have moral intuitions that liberals may not recognizeWe present theoretical and empirical reasons for believing that there are in fact five psychological systems that provide the foundations for the world’s many moralities. The five foundations are psychological preparations for detecting and reacting emotionally to issues related to harm/care, fairness/reciprocity, ingroup/loyalty, authority/respect, and purity/sanctity. Political liberals have moral intuitions primarily based upon the first two foundations, and therefore misunderstand the moral motivations of political conservatives, who generally rely upon all five foundations.faculty.virginia.edu...


Study Three:

The Power of Political MisinformationBut a series of new experiments show that misinformation can exercise a ghostly influence on people's minds after it has been debunked -- even among people who recognize it as misinformation. In some cases, correcting misinformation serves to increase the power of bad information...
In a paper approaching publication, Nyhan, a PhD student at Duke University, and Reifler, at Georgia State University, suggest that Republicans might be especially prone to the backfire effect because conservatives may have more rigid views than liberals: Upon hearing a refutation, conservatives might "argue back" against the refutation in their minds, thereby strengthening their belief in the misinformation. Nyhan and Reifler did not see the same "backfire effect" when liberals were given misinformation and a refutation about the Bush administration's stance on stem cell research. www.washingtonpost.com...



...not just political baiting, but an observable phenomenon.

So far, no 'cure' is mentioned

A response from a conservative:

Like the far lefts hatred for anyone with conservative views?
2. Willingness to gather in large groups to shout down and verbally abuse elected representatives.
At least they are doing something when their representitives ignore letters, e-mails and phone calls.
3. Paranoia that our government is run by communists because of artwork on buildings that Capitalists built
Haven't heard that one before.
4. Banding together to make tea producers wealthy
Haven't purchased any tea lately.
5. Compulsive purchasing of weapons and ammunition.
Compulsive anything indicates a problem. I see no problem with buying guns and ammo.
6. Fear that free Medical help for everyone is subverting Democracy
I think its more about not wanting to pay for people looking for a free ride.
7. Fear that upholding personal freedoms are socialistic.
Is forcing people to buy health insurance with the threat of fines and jail considered personal freedom?
8. Believing that Commentators are News Journalists.
They are all corporate shills
9. Believing that a Blackman in the White House is Un-American and against American beliefs
I don't think many people believe this.
10. Starting Wars based on lies to enrich the lives of the wealthy is best for America
War is bad period. Find one person on ATS that believes this
11. Thinking that allowing the government to spy on its citizens means Freedom for All
Nobody thinks this
12. Believing that the only way to cure Neo-Conservatism is to allow a public option health care system.
Don't know what to say on this one.
13. Believing that Corporations care about and are working for the best interests of All Americans.
Corporations only care about making money.
14. Believe the banking crisis was started by Obama
Everyone knows the banking crisis started before Obama was in office
15. Believe that republican administration would Never Ever Lie to them
All politicians lie
16. Thinking that there is too much education in America and that Education is fundamentally Wrong!
Duh. Nobody thinks this
17. Thinking that God supports hatred and wars and stupidity.
Ignorant statement. No true believer in God believes this
18. A belief that God put male pages in the capital building for republican personal satisfaction
Huh?
19. Calling for a Coup and killing our elected officials is what America stands for.
I have not heard about anyone calling for killing elected officials. Voting them out, Yes. Killing, No.
20. Believe that W. honestly and truly cared for them.
Politicians are all the same. They don't care.

These are just to name a few.

If you exhibit any of these symptoms there is hope for you, however if you exhibit 5 or more these symptoms the only cure for you is Obama's health care plan - the one that allows the federal government to assist in your funeral expenses.


Great I don't exhibit any of these "symptoms" so I guess I am just a conservative and not a neo-con. BTW..your last sentence indicates you are showing symptoms of neo-conservatism. You don't even realize the hatred you have for anyone that doesn't think like you.

neo conservative....traditional conservative...


modern conservatives treat real conservatism much like they treat the bible

They pick out the things that they like, and seek to smite those who don't agree

but ignore the things that make life too difficult, or that they, themselves, are guilty of.

Cherry Picking your philosophies is a great way to win votes...its just not a great way to be a honest person with an opinion thay any free thinking individual should value.

LMAO love it. And rings true. There should be a list for the hardcore dems out there. The American public is tired of all politicians. Behaving like they are royalty and ignoring the wishes of the people and doing more and more damage to the country with partisan wars.There are many young republicans that have left and moved on to an Independent party.

The repubs are going Quasimodo-ringing-the-*ucking-bell crazy, just like the dems did when Bush won office. Do people not realize that all this bias political bulls*it is killing America? Anyone?? A lot of people in republican party are hypocrites. Down right hypocrites.

Mark my words. The phoenix will rise from the ashes. I guarantee you, you'll be seeing the makings of an independent president in the next 5-10 years because people are sick and tired of it.

Far left, far right... Any form of extremism is unhealthy, I point to the middle east. I believe this is a troll thread just to get a dem/rep argument going, and I give it and the op a big
for both originality, and insight. By the way this is not coming from a republican, much less a neo-con.
