For being such a smartass, you say some pretty fcuking stupid things. Some of the the most vociferous advocates for war were Democrats like Pelosi, Kerry, and both Clinton's. How sweet it would be to have nothing more to do with these a**holes.

You're wrong.
Bush was not a genuine Conservative, but still far better than the scum that make up the Socialist Democrat Party.
yes I am right, only difference was is that G.W. Bush wasnt as far to the left as what Al Gore and John Kerry were which Medicare Part D even proved he favored Modern Liberalism.

I agree with that Statement that Modern Conservatives & Modern Liberals Labels are Meaningless because they dont mean in the political sense what it meant to be a Liberal & Conservative in the true or Classical sense which today they are based on Ideaologies vs Sociologies.

That's true. Bush only doubled the national debt, while Reagan tripled it.
GW Bush was alot worse than Reagan especially with adding to the Federal Deficit but Reagan was believer in the Old Left too.

Ronald Reagan on Franklin Roosevelt: The Significance of Style

Reagan was a New Deal Democrat. He joked that he had probably become a Democrat by birth, given that his father, Jack, was so devoted to the Democratic Party. The younger Reagan cast his first presidential vote in 1932 for Franklin Roosevelt, and did so again in the succeeding three presidential contests. His faith in FDR remained undimmed even after World War II, when he called himself a New Dealer to the core. He summarized his views in this way:I thought government could solve all our postwar problems just as it had ended the Depression and won the war. I didnt trust big business. I thought government, not private companies, should own our big public utilities; if there wasnt enough housing to shelter the American people, I thought government should build it; if we needed better medical care, the answer was socialized medicine. When his brother, Moon, became a Republican and argued with his sibling, the younger Reagan concluded he was just spouting Republican propaganda.

Of course, Reagan was to change his views drastically in the coming years, but even when one examines his later comments about Franklin Roosevelt and the New Deal, one comes away with the sense that he never got over his youthful admiration of a man he considered a great leader. He would carefully parse his criticisms of the New Deal, often focusing on the honorable intent of the heart over the practical effect of the policies. Critique and praise would be mixed together as he attempted to separate the man from his programs.

Galt is a Conservative.

Planned Parenthood is our only hope to prevent the breeding of inferior members of society, fulfilling the vision of Margaret Sanger.

Government cannot create jobs, only get out of the way.

<quoted text>and there is nothing Liberal about this Modern Liberalism either.
Classical Liberalism vs. Modern Liberalism and Modern Conservatism
Basically, classical liberalism is based on a belief in liberty. Even today, one of the clearest statements of this philosophy is found in the Declaration of Independence. In 1776, most people believed that rights came from government. People thought they had only such rights as government elected to give them. But following British philosopher John Locke, Jefferson argued that its the other way around. People have rights apart from government, as part of their nature. Further, people can both form governments and dissolve them. The only legitimate purpose of government is to protect these rights.
http://www.ncpa.org/pub/classical-liberalism-...
The liberalism belief in liberty you speak of is freedom from government interference in social and religious aspects of their lives. Conservatives profess the same desire for limited government but in reality want to use the government to impose their values and religion on everyone else. So what you're saying may be interesting but the reality is that liberal and conservative are merely labels that have little connection to the literal definition of the words.
