I wouldn't say the Republican party is anti-abortion. I'm a republican, and I'm for it, and all of my friends who are republicans are also for it. I'm also pro-stem cell research, pro-gay marriage, etc.... Flip of the coin though, and I'm anti-affirmative action, anti-socialized medicine, anti-gun control, and pro-death penalty. Some may see me as a very wierd republican, but its more like the mainstream republican, who doesn't get to voice their opinion loudly because the christian right has taken the reins away from us.

To quote the wonderful author P.J. O'Rouke;

"Neither conservatines nor humorists believe man is good. But left wingers do. They think man's misbehavior is caused by a deprived environment, educational shortcomings, and improper bonding within the family unit. They believe there are people so poor they can't pick up their yard. Down that line of thinking lie all sorts of nastiness. Just ask the Cubans.

So I'm a conservative; what else could I be? However, I'm not completely happy about it. Let's face it, conservatives can be buttheads, too. There are the reborn Jesus creeps, for instance. We should do to these what the conservative Romans did, with lions. But even regular country club-type Republicans can be stuffy about some things--dope smuggling, for example, and mixing Quaaludes in your scotch, and putting your stereo speakers on the roof of your house and turning the volume all the way up and playing Parliament of Funk at 3:00AM.

So, what I'd really like is a new label. And I'm sure there are a lot of people who feel the same way. We are the Republican Party Reptiles. We look like Republicans, and think like conservatives, but we drive a lot faster and keep vibrators and baby oil and a video camera behind the stack of sweaters on the bedroom closet shelf. I think our agenda is clear. We are opposed to: government spending, Kennedy kids, seat-belt laws, being a pussy about nuclear power, busing our children anywhere other than Yale, trailer courts near our vacation homes, Gary Hart, all tiny Third World countryes that don't have banking secrecy laws, aerobics, the UN, taxation without tax loopholes, and jewelry on men [COLOR=Red]{[(gotta adming guys, I'm not with that one, I got 2 necklaces, 3 braclets, wristband, and wanna get my lip pierced:P-vM)]}[/COLOR]. We are in favor of: guns, drugs, fast cars, free love (if our wives don't find out), a sound dollar, cleaner environment (poor people should cut it out with the graffiti), a strong military with spiffy uniforms, Nastassia Kinski, Star Wars (and anything else that scares the Russkis), and a firm stand on the Middle East (raze buildings, burn crops, plow the earth with salt, and sell the population into bondage).

There are thousands of people in America who feel this way, especially after three or four drinks. If all of us would unite and work together, we could give this country...well, a real bad hangover."

That is why you need more then two parties (the indepent parties are a joke sadly).

:rofl: Only of you are retarded you buy that (both as a extreme lefwingen brainswashed person and when you believe the quote to be true), being left winged obviously doesn't have to mean you think missery is due to inproper nurturing (alone). I guess (hope) most people are smart enough it may be due to either the way you are born, nurtering or both. Naturing has a major impact on somebodies life though: The morals and guidance you get, the enviroment you live in etc. Anyway anybody who even wishes to pay for the living for somebody who can, but refuses to work ("I'm lazy, why work if I get a free income? w00t") obviously doens't deserve help. People need to be offered a helping hand to put them back on their feed though (after they have to walk themselfs, they won't be carried around).

Liberal conservative: You are for lots of liberties, yet what to keep a lot of things as they are or used to be, conservative. If you are both for conserving things and for keeping and granting new freedoms (liberties) I can't think of anything else then a Liberal Conservative. Just like I think myself as a Liberal Socialist because I am for various freedoms and liberties but also in favour of a well goverent social system. Abd then you have a whole load of other tags such as pure "liberals" who wan't liberty on all levels, they are real individualists, you have religious conservatives and erm, many more names you can think of.

Though these names are all limited or generalising to some extend. Two people of the same group may not agree 100% with all party points, they may have (slight) difference of opinion on some topics. So in the end it all comes down to checking party programs and supporting the party (candidate) that best represents you.

Hmmm. I guess my earlier post here about how support for Obama was paper-thin and would eventually dry up looks kinda dumb now. Oh well, double down - Hillary is electable, Obama is not. He's had a completely free ride from the press and he still can't knock Hillary out of the primary. All the Republicans will have to do is merely bring out his history, one excruciating drip at a time. But there is one bright spot for Democrats: they're guaranteed having a Dem in the White House no matter which party's candidate wins in November. ;)

I stand by my prediction. Obama v. McCain come August. Obama fell into the shit with this Rev. Wight thing, and came up smelling like roses. Something like that would of destoried anyone else. Changing the current for Hil-dawg would create such a backlash, and such vocal, and dare I say valid, cries of Racism from the black community and far left that the DNC wouldn't dare do it.

The DNC, no. The Clintons, yes.
