    Conservatives are all about accomplishing exactly the opposite of what they say
    They SAY they're all about Family
    and yet they wreck them

    They Say they're for Fiscal Responsibility
    but when they have the reins of government ........... we get deficits like we've never had before

    They Say they're for smaller Gov't
    but they make Gov't bigger and more intrusive everytime they're in power

    Conservatives are the biggest bunch of hypocrites and liars. They claim that they are against big government but yet they want to expand the already over bloated defense budget and give billions to the military industrial complex. Conservatives are all for freedom and the American way yet they oppose equal rights and equal opportunities for all Americans.

    Conservatives are like a 3 year old who puts their fingers in the ears and then hums as loud as they can..so they don't have to hear that in which they don't want to hear.

    And I'll say it again.

    The world will be a far better place once you are no longer a part of it.


    lol, you are so spectacularly wrong no wonder so many click on topics you're in. They want to see the ensuing train-wreck.

    Are we talking about religious conservatives or economic conservatives? There's a HUUUUGE difference. You seem to be confusing two separate things that have no relation to each other.

    And they have poopie in their pants.

    Actually, they do.
    And here you thought you were being clever and satirical.
    Of course, you always think you are.
    No one else does.

    Hey, look! Another vulgar, tacky death-wish from snidebitch!

    BTW...Could you turn down that hair? The glare is giving me a headache.

    Semantically you are correct. But as a practical matter, as a matter of reality, the 2 groups largely overlap.

    Fiscal conservatives tend to be religious conservatives, and religious conservatives then to be fiscal conservatives. And socially, both are racist and anti-gay. So what is your point vis-a-vis a group such as this? Seems to me you're doing some smoke-and-mirrors.

    The two may overlap but they also overlap with the democratic party (social conservatives who only vote democrat for the loaves and fishes), so your "point" does not stand the test of scrutiny. And by saying "racist" you've just jumped off the cliff. The most homophobic people I've ever encountered happened to be non-white fundamentalist Christians.

    You won't be alive to see it. I give you five years maximum before your head explodes from all the venom and rage you lug around with you every day.

    Bullshit. You're a crabby old queen who wants to drag everyone around him into his cesspool of nastiness.

    Racist, ha! This from the guy who wrote on here a few weeks ago that Muslims shouldn't be allowed in the USA. icon_rolleyes.gif


    ...you say that because unlike other people you can't change so you believe they can't either.

    Do you have any data to back up what seems to me and I'm sure many others as a totally ridiculous statement?
