DON'T BE A MISERABLE CONSERVATIVE!


Recommended Posts

And just maybe ... Conservatives have a reason to let their voices be heard loudly.

Liberal activists have long legislative wish list

Many constituencies, including feminists, ethnic minorities and gays, will be looking closely at the new administration's high-level appointments. The head of the largest gay-rights group, Joe Solmonese of the Human Rights Campaign, said he expected gays to receive major appointments, not just to "symbolic" posts related to AIDS or gay issues.

Among Obama's staunchest campaign backers was the abortion-rights movement, which is no longer worried that Supreme Court vacancies over the next four years might be filled by anti-abortion judges.

Now, groups such as NARAL Pro-Choice America and the Planned Parenthood Federation of America want Obama and Congress to move aggressively on several initiatives that were thwarted during the Bush administration. Priorities include expanded access to birth control and family-planning services, and a shift from Bush-supported abstinence-only sex education to comprehensive programs that include teaching about contraception.

As a former fetus, I oppose abortion. <_<

You know, one of the executive orders they say Obama intends to over turn pronto is the one that Bush made that only allows American aid workers in AIDS ravaged Africa to preach abstinence...no birth control or contraception. This is, to my mind, madness. I can understand demanding both but not just one. This is unconscionable.

Wow, what horrible priorities those are. Conservatives have it so rough :(

Talk about misplaced proirities: A liberal is a person who's views reject traditional and biblical standards in favour of subjective or relative standards. A liberal supports many of the following political positions and practices.

Taxpayer-funded and/or legalized abortion

Censorship of teacher-lead prayer in classrooms and school sponsored events

Support for gun control

Support of obscenity and pornography as a First Amendment right[1]

Income redistribution, usually through progressive taxation

Government-rationed medical care, such as Universal Health Care

Taxpayer-funded and government-controlled public education

The denial of inherent gender differences

Insisting that men and women have the same access to jobs in the military

Legalized same-sex marriage

Implementation of affirmative action

Political correctness

Support of labor unions

Teaching acceptance of promiscuity through sexual "education" rather than teaching abstinence from sex.[2]

A "living Constitution" that is reinterpreted as liberals prefer, rather than how it was intended

A satirical conception of the liberal brain.Government programs to rehabilitate criminals

Abolition of the death penalty

Environmentalism[3]

Disarmament treaties

Globalism

Opposition to an interventionalist American foreign policy [4]

Opposition to full private property rights[5]

Reinstating the Fairness Doctrine

In 2005, it was reported by CBS News that liberals were the most likely supporters of the theory of evolution. The theory of evolution is a key component of atheistic ideologies in the Western World.

Opposition to domestic wire-tapping as authorized in the Patriot Act

Calling anyone they agree with a "professor" regardless of whether he earned that distinction based on a real peer review of his work (see, e.g., Richard Dawkins and Barack Obama).

IMO, there is a standand and it's not relative.

WoW I didn't realise supporting gun control was going against biblical standards, someone should tell the pope he doesn't support biblical standards.

Oh and how can you not support labour unions, they protect workers rights???

Do you really think kids will not have sex if they are taught absitence?? Holland has some of the lowest teenage pregnancy rates and lowest STD rates in the world and have one of the most progressive sex ed programmes.

You don't support some one having the right to choose who they marry??

People have the right to believe or not believe in god, this does not make them any less of a person.

On some levels I agree with plenty of that. It's framed in an incendiary/cartoonish sort of way. Who isn't in favor of gun control? Does anyone think that a12 year old should be able to buy a pistol along with a soda at the corner market?

Most conservatives when trying to make a point tend to do so in black and white on these boards. They see a 7 day waiting period as the same as taking your complete rights away. I can see WANTING a gun without waiting 7 days, but why would someone NEED a gun without waiting 7 days?

Also I don't get the "They want us to register our guns so they can take them away" argument.

No one says that about your car and you have to register that.

Me personally I don't think gun laws work because their are too many out there and criminals don't care whether they get them legally or not, but a lot of the bitching is just to *****.

Agree. I own plenty of guns and it never bothered me to come back 4 days later to pick one up. the laws are kind of silly in some ways . i.e., thinking they stop criminals from attaining guns but why make it easy? If it were just open market a felon could buy a pickup truck full of handguns. And, as for the comment about wiretapping, wasn't McCain also against the warrantless wire tapping? The same people who say they want small government and talk about how incompetent the govt. is seem perfectly content to let this government decide when it is OK to eaves drop on private citizens. And, yes, evolution does make as much sense to me as the Adam and Eve story. I don't apologize for this.

A lot of those sound pretty spiffy to me.

Yeah, because that list is way off. Only the far far left agrees with the majority of those things. Maybe 1% of liberals.

This is the problem with liberals. Liberals can't agree on the ssues. Because they are so concerned with individual rights there are no standards. Everything is relative and subjective to each individual's circumstances. Conservatives on the other hand, have absolute standards.
