    Despite promising to slash government spending, conservatives are apparently willing to break the bank defending their fringe policies in court.

    Alternet.org, May 20, 2011 | They rode into power on a wave of conservative populism, vowing to rein in spending, slash deficits (remember how the Tea Partiers swore they weren't focusing on those “wedge” social issues anymore?), and above all, restore our fealty to the Constitution, a document they claim to hold an almost religious reverence for.

    Then, in a development as easy to predict as the sun rising in the east, they set themselves to passing outrageous legislation designed to appeal to their far-right base – much of it legislation that, on its face, is blatantly unconstitutional. And passing gimmicky, unconstitutional laws isn't free – under federal law, states can be ordered to pay the fees of the lawyers who bring winning civil rights suits against them, so they usually end up picking up the tab for both sides of the litigation when they lose.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    In brief, the 6 crazy, unconstitutional laws are...

    1. Anti-Sharia Laws

    2. Abortion Bills Conflicting with Roe

    3. Nullification Laws

    4. States Regulating Immigration

    5. Don't Say This or That Laws

    6. Financial 'Martial Law'


    Thought the Tea Party was all about lower taxes? Wrong. Read the article, and you see Republicans are willing to spend hundreds of millions of taxpayer funds attacking US Citizens they hate: Muslims, Gays, Immigrants, Minorities, unions members and women seeking an abortion.

    Republicans: Same old haters and bigots.

    The GOP definitely needs to be taken over by moderates and progressives because these religious lunatics are going to cause some real serious problems for this country. These religious lunatics don't want freedom for America, they want a theocratic dictatorship that is governed and owned only by white, anglo-saxon protestant males.

    That's outrageous! Why would anyone ban sharia law? Sharia law is all about love and acceptance and tolerance!

    Three cheers for allowing sharia law! icon_lol.gif

    Oh and, conservatives (along with me) will probably drop the whole immigration thing if you agree to end welfare, but until then they kind of have no choice.

    There isn't even a protestant male on the supreme court and you're still worried about that? lol Hello, it's not 1950 anymore.

    Everything else you said is just plain delusional, I'm sorry.
