This thread is so popular, what a bastion of diverse, intellectual banter
Whats to say really?
I have been politically active for about ten years, never before in my life have I seen such a destructive force as this modern mainstream
conservative movement. I honestly think the GOP has crafted the ultimate manipulation machine, which uses base emotions as a tool for support = fear.
I do not disapprove of all conservative ideas, I do however disapprove of the rhetoric and what this rhetoric does to perfectly able minds, not to
mention division based upon oppertunism.
9/11 was the kicker for me; using the bully pulpit the GOP base made thinking twice about WAR, a symbol of weakness, love for terrorists, hate for
America and her ideals... It happened and it was disgusting! Chicken sh$# Dems politicians did NOT have the guts to put the breaks on the race to war.
Yet it seems that nobody cares to remember who did the leg work and which portion of society gave the vital support... how much has it costed folks???
Not my commie induced ideological expense mind you
So did the people questioning the war have a point?
or did they heart OBL?
Really, besides bullying people to get what they wanted, WTF was that?
Being conscience of the consiquences around war equates a lack of patriotism,
questioning authority is not good. VERY ironic due to the neocons talk round these parts.
Same can be said with the financial collapse, nobody cares to SEE the link between
"LET THE PRODUCERS PRODUCE" TM. rand, ronny, etc...
dropping restrictions that would let the market create more revenue creating avenues,
create more capital and thusly more employment...
ala what everyone here goes on about,
"stay out of business's way, COMMIE"...
Tax cuts for the Billionaires
how did that trickle down the cash
Anyhow RR and his brand are the link IMO
We cannot be realistic in discussion anymore. EVERYTHING has to be have a VILAN, extreme and so mellow dramatic, people who think healthcare is a
catastrophe waiting to happen are SOCIALISTS -
"WHY YES PUTZ, and the people who did not want to go to IRAQ LOVED TERRORISTS"
The cycle continues
Unfortunately liberals do not have the ability to get in the big group think that gives the GOP victory after victory, or resurgence after just
overseeing the most crocked private looting ever.
Liberals, believe or not do not like BS no matter who does it, hence a growing distrust for Obamas socialist agenda, guess what....
WE ARE TALKING A MESS - WHILE HE IS STILL IN OFFICE
Modern liberals are like cats, everyone has a different benchmark, micro agenda and
ideas of what is progress.
Conservatives have been taught to seek static and passive remedies... One line to hold,
very goal oriented and imaginative.
I know ATS had plenty of people defending Bush, same who bash Obama, same who are reformed...
I do very little Obama defense these days, even though it may hurt
the prospects of my general political outlook, wrong is wrong. The conservative doctrine I have seen here is STFU if the guys is on your TEAM.
FOX for that matter, same deal, if it is damaging, IGNORE and redirect by proposing
OBAMA IS A MUSLIM
you see I don't say it to say it, but THAT is the redirecting. Your attention has been diverted to ideas that mirror TV shows and stories.
Glenn Beck = method actor + elite newsman
Glenn Beck = fantastic man to base your entire outlook upon
The kicker is the collapse had its basis in conservative ideas, less regulation, less restriction, more FREEDOM, wealth creation, etc... And so far no
new ideas, no reevaluation of these long held Ronny ideas and we are worse for it.
I DO greatly appreciate the conservatives who have a pair and think for themselves
pardon the diatribe
HO HO HO
