Has anyone seen any posts on the Todays News forum? A lot of those posters act like real politicians. They defend their party and then they attack the other party and ignore all reason.

They do it very deceptivly also. They seem to make the topic for a completely different reason like for exampele: Would Louisiana turn into a red state?

But then they say stuff like 'But those democrats are definatly gonna hype up bigotry etc. etc.' and it gets just plain annoying. Is anyone sick of seeing posts like this?

I think you are referring to some of the Bush supporters, like Navy Pride and Stinger.

With all due respect, they have a right to their opinions, and I dont regard them as trolls. A couple of days ago, in one of the threads, someone called me a whack job, but that still isnt trolling. I reported that post, and it hasnt happened since. Probably a case of someone's emotions overloading his intellect, and that happens a lot on both sides. Still, that isnt trolling.

Let me tell you what trolling is. On the last board I was on, a gang would constantly stalk me and personally attack me every chance they got. First, they tried pinning a Liberal label on me, and when that failed, they started telling people that I was a member of the KKK, and liked to lynch black people. That was trolling.

Actually, the admins run a pretty tight ship here, and the Republicans on this board are pretty intelligent. Just because they spin something in a way you dont like doesnt make them trolls.

To Navy Pride, Stinger, and those on the other side of the debate here - I dont agree with anything you say, but you have a right to your beliefs, and I must take your side on this. I do this not because of what you post, but because you are not breaking any rules, and deserve to have your side heard. Now go **** yourselves. LOL. Just kidding. Had to put that last comment in there. Why? Because this is the basement, and I have always wanted to say "**** you" in a forum without getting banned. Hehe.

Oh, so you're pro-small government, ey chief? How do you feel about Bush taking a case to the supreme court about California allowing medical marijuana? Hmm?
The fact is I am yet to see you ****ing stray from party lines once, which leads me to believe:
a) you're a retarded imbacile who has difficulty tying his shoes in the morning
b) you think you're a politician and have some sort of commitment to a party
and most likely:
c) all of the above

That's what I'm quite certain of. I think that for one, you're completely ****ing retarded, like really needs to wear a helmet when you're unsupervised retarded, and also you can't seem to figure out that the parties are there to represent you, not vice versa, and that you're allowed to hold your own opinions.
How 'bout that champ? You want a cookie? I'll send someone to wipe the drool off your chin, how about that chief? Would you like that?
Wow, why don't you tell us how you really feel my left wing whacko friend....:lol: I love it..........

1) Pro small government - I am with you on that. Unfortunately, Bush has increased government size over even what FDR did. Therefore, Bush is not Conservative in this area.
2) Pro tax cuts - I agree. Bush is OK on that.
3) Pro balanced budget - I agree. Unfortunately, Bush has never met a domestic spending bill he didnt like, and has used his veto a single time while in office in an attempt to reign it in, not even to kill pork barrel spending. Bush is not Conservative in this area.
4) Pro states rights - I agree. Unfortunately, Bush has increased the power of Federal government more than even JFK did. Bush is not Conservative here either.
5) Pro judges who are not activists - I agree. Bush did good with the Roberts nomination. I feel he will make a good judge. A+ for Bush on that.
6) Pro defense and strong military - Again, I agree, but to a point. I disagree on foreign adventurism, especially when it is not necessary. Bush, rather than strenghening our military, has actually weakened it through his reckless actions. This is open to debate, since there are conservatives on both sides of this issue..
Now to social issues, and this is where your notion of Conservatism falls apart.
1) Pro Death Penalty - That should be left up to the states.
2) Pro Life - Again, that should be left up to the states. I favor the overturning of Roe v. Wade, since that undermines the soverignty of the states. On the other hand, I oppose any Federal law to regulate abortion, since that would be in violation of the 10th Amendment to the Constitution.
3) Anti Gay Marriage - Again, the Federal government has no business here. This is a states' issue.
4) Pro school prayer - See above.
5) Pro under God in POA - See above.
6) Pro amendment to ban flag burning - Why not an amendment to prosecute those who fly flags on their cars if they dont take care of those flags? Why not prosecute business which disrespect the flag by using it as a logo in advertising? Actually, this should also be left up to the states. Let them regulate the behavior of their own citizens without the Federal government undermining their soverignty.
7) Anti affirmative action - Agreed. The Federal government has no business here.
8) Pro school vouchers. Again, the Federal government has no business telling the states how to run their own school systems.
Most of the points you make in social are not Conservative, but seek to regulate the behavior of people, and undermine states' soverignty. This flies in the face of number 4 in the first set of statements. You have contradicted yourself badly on this.

well when there are threads about these isues why don't you argue them........

Hey you might not believe this but I am not the biggest Bush fan but when I saw what the democrats offered up as and alternative it was a slam dunk that I would vote for him........The same thing happened in 2000........I do give President Bush a pass on some things though such as the deficit and some spending.........2 wars, 9/11/01 and the worse natural disaster in the history of this country cost money......

The dems had a good candidate in Leiberman that I might have voted for but because the party is controlled by the left wing whack left he did not win one primary..........

You say you voted for Bush, would you rather Kerry had won now?

There you go again, making assumptions. Because I am Conservative, I automatically would vote for Bush? No. I voted for Michael Badnarik in the last election, and voted for Buchanan in 2000.

As for Kerry, things would not be any different than it is under Bush. Both are birds of a feather.

You know, this is getting to damned serious for the basement. Why dont we move this discussion upstairs, and that way, we can get some serious discussion on it.

BTW - Thought I would not agree with you on anything, but turns out we do agree on a couple of points. Looks like you are not the only one guilty of making assumptions. LOL.

I agree with everything except for the pro-civil unions.Changing the name of marriage does not make it different.I can call a water pipe a bong or I can call a bong a water pipe but it is still the same thing reguardless of what it is called.

I would think that Bush would be your favorite person seeing how he made government bigger,gave out more handouts to other countries,and he is pro-illegal immigration.

Well lets compare notes and see...

Fiscal:

1. Pro Small Government
2. Pro Tax Cuts
3. Pro Balanced Budget (these seem like no brainers so far)
4. Pro States' Rights (that one is easy being an alaskan)
5. Pro Judges FAIRLY interpreting the constitution without partisan or idealogical bias.
6. I cannot speak to the military issue. I am pro defense...but strong military is so vague.

Social

1. Pro Death Penalty
2. Adamantly Pro Choice
3. Pro whatever will give me and my partner joint insurance, joint tax filings, health decision rights, mutual burial decisions, inheritance, and legal recognition for all of the above]
4. Anti School Prayer.
5. Pro "Under God" in the pledge
6. I have never seen a lot of flag burning and never thought it to be a big problem...cras and unruly, but not a raging social issue. Lets say I abstain on this one.
7. Adamantly against Affirmative Action as well as race directed scholarships, schools or anything else of its ilk.
8. I dont know enough about the school voucher issue to make a comment.

So you tell me where that puts me since you are so full of insight...oh wait, I know your answer...bets anyone?
