    Hillary or Condy?

    Condy - in a heart beat. I can't wait for the first viable female & African-American candidate to be a Republican :cool:

    Why do conservatives hate LIBERALS ???

    As a conservative, who knows many other conservatives, I can say without reservation that none of us hate liberals - an option you didn't allow for in your poll. One of "liberals" strengths is their social conscience and I agree with them on many social issues. I believe it is our...

    Do you think it was the right decision to drop the atomic bombs on Japan to end WW2?

    Re: Do you think it was the right decision to drop the atomic bombs on Japan to end W I remember from world history in high school - in all of recorded history (which goes back pretty darn far) there is less than 100 years of "peace" time. Not saying it's right, but war is a fact of life...

    Do you think it was the right decision to drop the atomic bombs on Japan to end WW2?

    Re: Do you think it was the right decision to drop the atomic bombs on Japan to end W Sorry - you are hanging out with poor examples of conservatives. The conservatives I know (and I know many) are all caring, giving people who continually offer assistance to those in need. They believe it...

    Should there be an inheritance tax?

    I'm so sorry - didn't even occur to me:3oops: . It's just that I'm having my first vacation days in over a year - this past work year has been really heavy duty.

    Should there be an inheritance tax?

    I guess I'm just anti-taxation. I work extremely hard for MY MONEY - without question, I EARN every dime. I don't believe that the government should get a portion of MY income before I even see it. Along the same line - the money I've worked hard for since the age of 16 (and paid taxes on)...

    Flat Tax or Income Tax.

    Look - I criticize the media more than anyone I know for the attention Paris Hilton receives. Without question, she's a bimbo and an embarassment to hard working women who manage both a home and a job. However, her grandfather worked hard, made good investments and left his family an...

    Flat Tax or Income Tax.

    Amen to that - estate taxes are a horrendous practice. I'm not a fan of taxing savings either. We're told to plan ahead, save for our retirement, for college, for a rainy day - whatever, also to invest in our future. But we get taxed (sometimes at pretty high rates) when we do so.

    My take on the abortion issue.

    I could be wrong - but I have the feeling that in ~50 years much of the world will view pro-choice countries (including the United States) and their practices much as we currently view Hitler and his "final solution". 'The real extremists in this debate are those who have never met an...

    My take on the abortion issue.

    Pro-lifers provide the counseling to women (and men) suffering from PASS (post abortion stress syndrome). 'Short term follow up studies, of less than six months, typically report 10 to 20 percent of patients reporting significant psychological problems which they associate with their abortion...

    Flat Tax or Income Tax.

    Just bought his book - the idea actually makes sense. I'll be writing my congresswoman (not that I expect her to support it) and my senators (who are iffy).
