Well, as opposed to many that hail allegiances, I am not swayed by pandering, promises, party affiliations, BS, tricks, lies, etc. I make a decision based on intellectual honesty, facts, data and history.....or at least as close as one can get to it in todays world of mis-information.
I am Conservative, and why ? well, I will agree both sides of the fence have done things wrong or commited mistakes, And some may be honest mistakes...no one's perfect, then again some were commited with absolute malice and no sense of what was good for the American people. That's politics, BUT my ultimate weight is given towards what is best for the American people and how they are effected.
Let us take a casual stroll down history shall we ?
It was the Liberal that started the supposed peace movement in Berkley during the Vietnam war. In the end, for all their ...again supposedly.... good intentions. They hurt the USA in foreign relations with our allies, put 1.6 million allies in concentration style camps and...although they claim to have saved American lives by bringing an end to the war...Those same people they saved they spit on and called baby killers..... While no one seemed to say much about the North Vietnamese killing our troops by strapping bombs on their children to kill our troops along with other extreme tactics.
How about the Alternative Minimum Tax ? Democratic liberals imposed it to get all those "evil" corporations to pay their fair share of taxes that they felt they weren't paying due to tax shelters and deductions. In the end, it ended up ensnaring millions of Americans paying taxes whom were never meant to be effected by the AMT. Charles Rangle....another Democrat....attempted to deal with this by eliminating it but raising taxes someplace else to make up for the losses to the Government. This was money the Government was never entitled to in the first place. The ATM still exists.
Lets look to the constant push to give illegals driver's licenses, New York tried it and its been slapped down over and over again....yet the liberals keep bringing it up and trying to pass it.
How about the war effort support ? Its been the Liberal side that has been whining, trying to influence people with the media and trying to get everyone to think it isn't supported. They are acting like Tokyo rose but living in the very country they are demoralizing. They for the most part have no clue what Iraq was like before they started whining and yes, although I can agree that its an unpopular war, anyone claiming it wasn't necessary obviously didn't follow what led up to it. We negotiated, we sanctioned, we even passed a US resolution. Enough is enough. This war is with Terrorism which Saddam clearly supported and had ties with, it isn't about just one group of terrorist. Anyone that doesn't understand that truth needs to go back and read history starting with Islamic national radicals in 1700's...you might know them as the Pirates of the Barbary coast is you stayed awake in history class.
What about the blatant disregard and illegal activities not to mention the open lies of Hilary and Bill ? Involvement with foreign communist nationals ? illegal campaign contributions ? Haven't you noticed that most nationalities or nations that have been entwined with "shadey behavior" or support of the Clintons have gained something from them ? Bill gave China missle guidance technology...and as i heard it back then, it was the last piece they needed to actually hit us with one of their missles. Bill let Puerto Rican terrorists out of prison in NY ....then Hilary became Senator of a state she wasn't a resident.
How about integrity ? Was Nancy Peloski as she claimed "standing shoulder to shoulder" with Mr. Bush when she's done nothing but undermine him ? traveling at no doubt taxpayer expense talking to our enemies....not her job description. How about Harry Ried calling our troops blood thirsty thugs and murderer's ? Not an appoligy on record as yet. Or his letter attacking a private citizen and "leaning" on his employer for something he took completely out of context.
Wow, I could do this forever. What about the survey's showing that liberals tend to have more hate towards their rivals than conservatives ?
What about this hoax called man made global warming ? Subsidizing ethanol just so it can even come close to compete with gasoline. Now that liberals have infected the Government with this "green" initiative, we are seeing food prices go up, medical inhalers go up, the energy production from ethanol 85 is 30?ess than gasoline and has burnt up small engines. Liberal government has now interfered with the free market by forcing what kind of light bulbs you can use, they tried to regulate BBQing in New Jersey since charcoal is 1/2 coal, they've pushed the Prius and other vehicles which have been proven not to actually lower pollution, but is more of a status symbol even though its not really saving the planet. It might save the owner in gas, but doesn't reduce pollution. In California they were trying to push an initiative to have regulation of new constructions thermastat..so they could lower it automatically if your had it set too high by their standards.
What about haven cities ? Sure, the illegal immigration situation needs to change and improve, but the liberal solution so far has been to push for amnesty for people that have broken the law and to against any law or good sense, create these haven cities at the expense of the taxpayer. Good intentioned as it is, this is alot of money from the coffers and messing with the local economy. San Diego country spend $101 million on free social services in 2006 and we as a country are not that rich. I know people that are born red, white and blue Americans without the services that illegals get for free. So we've basically pushed asside the citizens of our own country in favor of illegals ? And even since the Barrosa act in the 60's til now, no "walk out" has proven to America that we need these people. Not to be too mean or crass, but facts are facts.
Liberals started this Lie about 'Bush Lied, people died' junk. Doubtful that their simple minds could understand the intelligence that came in, they had a hard decision to make on what evidence they had and wanted to side on the safety of the USA. It was in Russia that the ideology stemmed forth that "if you lie to the public enough, they will believe it".
You can blame the liberals for the mortgage crises. It was them that told lenders to open up their monies to people that would normally not qualify. Then when things started going south, they started blaming the lenders. Now we are using our tax dollar to "bail out" these people...and the last figure I saw came close to the price of the war. Oh, so its ok to spend our tax dollar to bail out people that speculatively bought and chose wrong, but not to protect America ? Less than 1?ere lied to or take advantage of, 96?f people are still paying their mortgage and 3-4?ere speculative.
IN SUMMARY just in case your smart enough to know all this and other examples because there are many. You can skip to this summary.
History proves that if you don't know history, it repeats itself. It also proves that Liberals, as well meaning, full of good intentions and idealistic as they are, when judged in the light of Reality, they've ruined markets, taken from the needy, accomplish little at great expense to the taxpayer, and been morally reprehensible for their actions against our own citizens and troops...things that would be considered treason or at least require jail time.
Just the sheer trouble LIberals have caused that touched so many lives, messed up our economy now and in the past, the lacking integrity, the lies, the obvious idea to take control of everything they can get their greedy mits into, trying to slander the countries fore fathers. Anyone that is intellectually honest, know's history and has any kind of vaules or standards wouldn't be a liberal. Which is why I consider them the enemy. No one party can be "incompetant" or "uninformed" enough to keep screwing up America and not get some kind of clue. Many i've met seem to have just turned their minds off and stopped thinking. Not that critical thinking is their gift. But they are supposedly the people claiming to be "open minded". I guess to explain the free breeze blowing between their ears.
Your right, the republicans have hits against them as well. They have messed up a few things themselves and had individuals that did things that violated reason, but In review of their performance, they, as a party haven't had a concerted effort to destroy America, or bend it to their will and destroy our traditional values. They haven't wasted ton's of money (like $6.5trillion on the war on poverty) and screwed the taxpayer. LA county liberals have been thinking up ways to put it to the taxpayer to make up for the waste they have had in the past. Like lying to the people to pass Measure S. an illegal phone tax now made law due to their lies. They want to punish people with large homes....the market punishes people enough on such things becasue it costs them more to buy it.....and sales tax, larger property tax, etc.
If this isn't at least a good start to show that a liberal is a seudo communist who wants to control your life, dictate to you how to live and by what standard, to do things that make them feel good or with good intentions at the cost of wasted tax dollar (since hardly anything has worked).
Well, I guess you need to donate your brain to science..because you don't need it.
