We are a group of Conservatives on Mod DB if youre a Conservative please join .
So then Barack Obama has declaered "I would put our legislative and foreign policy accomplishments in our first two years against any president — with...
Hello. Many Americans today can agree that our situation is horrible and is worse than when we had Bush.
Well ive been thinking of starting this group for a while, but what made meactualy start it was Headhunter128s stupidity and insults he thinks Obama is...
Hyia guys, I hate Obama like you!
I don't hate Obama though.
Dislike his political views, and not a fan of his administration in general, but I don't hate him.
Thats what i mean.
Dang it, Obama won. Those voting machines were RIGGED! Screw Obama.
No, the people are "rigged" to be afraid of Romney's social-darwinism, homophobia, and dishonesty. Pakistan should fit a lot smoother with this groups political ideologies. Ahh you plebeian pubbies aren't going to like this status ^^
How many of you are conservatives and how many of you are republicans(USA) who think you're conservative?
I'm an-ex New Zealander Australian. My politics are fairly right wing. However, I do break the mold somewhat.
In general, I agree with the American GOP on social issues, half-agree with them on economic issues. I appreciate the necessity of supporting the disadvantaged, but am unwilling for the USA to choke themselves to death with debt.
We have things like universal healthcare here in Australia. But we're not swimming in debt like the US. We can actually afford such programmes. Our political system is rapidly sliding from center-left to center-right as voters get sick of the far left Greens party meddling in the decisions of the Labour Party. In Australia, the Liberal National Party is our sort-right wing party, and I generally support them.
Why am I conservative? Because progressives have no regard for reality, in my experience. They will pursue a fantasy even if it destroys the very fabric of society. They're also quite comfortable with decieving the public 'for their own good'.
People like me reject the idea of 'forward' and 'back'. We're not interested in going back to the 50's. The fifties sucked. We see politics in three dimensions. Progressives see politics as a single dimension. 'Progress' and 'the wrong side of history'.
I think the problem the GOP faces is that they have no choice but to rip apart hundreds of things progressives have put in place. This conflicts with their 'small government' ethos. At best, they can only promise, "Once we've dealt with X, Y, and Z, we will transition to small government."
That stuff you said about progressives is very similar to how many Americans reacted to Thoreau and further peace activists, work unions, and abolitionists. The truth is, we have room to move forward, the trick is for you to know what kind of world you'd like to live in, and accept that you likely won't see it in your lifetime. Then, recall that what you say and do now, can very well change how humanity will exist on this earth in the time to come. As MLK put it, I would much rather be a headlight than a taillight
Been away for a while. It's October 6, and Mitt Romney is certainly doing rather well. If the current trends continue, he may very well win the election by a large margin.
On twitter, I've got followers who are avid Obama fans; some are saying that if Mitt Romney can actually deliver on his rhetoric from the last debate, they'd vote for him in a heartbeat.
triangulm you have to remeber we are americans- deep down at our core americans believe we need to take care of ourselfs, its what drives us.
What you call greed is in fact this belief in ourselfs, this is also the reason many americans dont want to help the world. because its one of our core principle that you need to work for yourself. And we do actually give BILLIONS in aid to other countries and almost always send lots of aid to disaster victims. And thats our money that we gave to our government we could be using to feed our own poor but we give it away to other countries most of which arent grateful and hate us.
so why dont you think before you speak, because you just made yourself look like an idiot.
