Eric, is that you bumping your own site on ATS? Conservatives Network is laughable, uses selective post approval to control the flow of
discussion, and refuses to post or consider any information that rebuts what they present (then accuses anyone providing of not being interested in
discussion and bans them from further posting).
In this article, they talk about the "Gestapo"-like tactics of Paul supporters (as compared to the same of Paul opposers, the party in general, the
media, primary election 'irregularities' in NH and other states and party conventions in 2008, and so forth).
They talk about being rude to Giuliani - but discount the treatment Giuliani, other candidates, and the media itself in the debates and post-debate
follow-ups gave Paul and his supporters.
They aim for guilt by association by discussing actions of individual Paul supporters (worthless argument there).
They dig into pork spending talk regarding earmarks, which is laughable as earmarks merely allow congress to assign the funds for allocation instead
of leaving it up to the executive to spend the funds at will (best for the taxpayers to actually get some benefit from this as compared to providing
an even larger blank check for Obama with no accountability).
Then the discussion of the ads - none of which attack the personal lives of any candidates, but reveal how they have handled themselves (and the
taxpayers) in the public sector - how terrible.
The Reagan/Perry ad - this gave me a chuckle. So Paul supported Reagan's stated goals of small government and low spending, which Reagan then ended
up not upholding once in office (at which point Paul left because the party had betrayed it's values and wasn't living it's supposed conservative
talk), while Perry supported Gore's views on bigger government. Not sure I'm seeing the issue...
As to Santorum and Bachmann hating gays and muslims? Well, just listen to their jingoism and demagoguery on these topics sometime, and the fact that
their policies paint all in these groups with the same brush as well as endanger civilians and liberty to a large degree - it's not a hard conclusion
Such a tragically laughable site, quite simply.
