I posted the links. Sorry you're too drunk to read them.
Although there is really nobody conservative enough for me, I think Reagan was the best President of our time. I'm actually leaning more libertarian since the GOP is not strong enough on less government. I'm about 70% conservative and 30% Libertarian. I would be totally Libertarian if not for their stance on our military and illegal narcotics. The less government in my life, the better. Should the opportunity arise, I'll be voting Paul for our presidential nominee in the primaries.
If you want to know who the really stupid people are, it's those in the inner cities that vote strongly Democrat every election. In fact, Romney didn't get one vote in several inner-city districts because they all vote Democrat. That includes districts here in Cleveland, speaking of which, Cleveland (like Detroit) has been under Democrat rule for decades now. It's not a wonder why it's a failed city.
I don't get a newsletter from anybody. I don't need anybody telling me how to think like Democrats do. The only thing I really watch on Fox on a regular basis (during the winter months) is Bill O'. In global warming time, I give my 80" high-def 3-D television a rest and tend to outdoor activities. I'm a landlord and have a ton of work ahead of me every summer.
I didn't ask who your favorite president of our time was. I asked who your favorite CONSERVATVE president of your time was. Who here would like to slam XXX around the forum like a ragdoll if he wants to try to sell Reagan as a "Conservative"? But then you already knew that, didn't you XXX? That's why you were forced to change the wording of my question. Once again. You think long and hard why Americans haven't elected a true Conservative president within your life time. Here's a hint. It's the same reason why 97% of the climate experts disagree with your radical, flat earth like and provided views on the obvious changes we are experiencing in our planet's climate.

We are all fully aware you are a landlord. It's where your slum lord @ss fine tuned your hatred for the poor and people with brown skin.

Are you talking about Bush's unpaid for, socialist medicare extension that nobody had any problems with, what so ever or are you talking about the record setting amount of spending Reagan did?

Simple. You have a socialist as President and he's borrowing money left and right. Republicans don't want to be blamed for picking on the poor so they go right along with it. There's a potential of 47 million votes there because that's about the amount of people on food stamps.
It's a clear demonstration what the game plan is with this guy. Once the sloths outnumber the workers, the sloths have the power to control the government. Then it's only a matter of a few years before the country collapses. We are almost to that point already because people are giving up on work and going on some social program for support. When more and more people quit working, there are only a handful that's able to support them, and then they leave the country for higher grounds.
No institution can survive giving out more than they take in. Your bank can't do it, your insurance companies can't do it, the company you work for can't do it, your household can't do it, and neither can your government, but lazy Americans could care less how it gets done, just as long as government keeps feeding them their goodies.
If you couldn't drive truck starting tomorrow for whatever reason, then you would be one of those "lazy" Americans who are smart enough to not even try to get a $7 an hour job because it wouldn't cover the gas to get there. Bet when commiesecurity time comes around for you, you'll be clutching for them "goodies".

You didn't ask me, but I have serious thoughts on this question.
TRUE Conservatives are too far to one side of the political spectrum to ever garner a majority of the votes.
On a scale of 1-10 with let's say, a Marxist being a 1 & lets say a Libertarian being a 10, one must be somewhere from a 3 to an 8 OR at least pose as such during the campaigns. The more moderate (4-6) appearing compared to their opponent, the more likely a win.
It's no wonder that so many politicians are also lawyers. They are learned & practiced at word usage.

I don't know about that. I think the problem is we don't have enough people that are into politics like us here. Many people don't understand it. I had a report and I don't know if I kept it, but they did a survey years ago asking people questions about how they would like to see the country operate, what they would change, what they would like to see promoted and things like that.
As it turned out, many people had conservative values and didn't even know it. Some were diehard conservatives and were shocked to find out.
Liberals divide Americans and have been quite successful damaging the Republican name and conservative ideology. Democrat--good, Republican--bad. People that don't have that much of an interest in politics or policies just believe it too. So how does a real conservative stand a chance?
I think Nixon did more harm to the GOP than the Dems did. Also, with comments like "legitimate rape" and saying seniors and vets are just looking for a hand out, the GOP does just fine at making themselves look bad without anyone's help. I also wouldn't say that the Dems divided the nation, when you have so many propaganda outlets like Fox and MSNBC who make money off of making sure we are a divided nation. I think the fact that people toss around names like Reagan or GW when the word Conservative is mentioned speaks volumes, seeing they were far from Conservative.

Pops, I mostly agree with you, but I think it's more complicated than that. Our country is mostly a mix of moderates and conservatives. Extreme conservatives and extreme liberals are both minorities. Where it get strange is if you look at the composition of political parties. Both Democrats and Independents are mixtures, with moderates in both groups constituting the majority. But both Democrats and Independents have large numbers that identify themselves as conservative and liberal, too. But the Republican party is composed overwhelmingly of conservatives, with few moderates and almost no liberals. This Gallup poll explains it better (and with more detail):

If you were an auto manufacturer, and invented a car that would last forever and never break down, would you market such a vehicle? If you were a dentist that invented a pill that stopped cavities in anybody that took the pill, would you market it and put yourself and all your fellow dentists out of business? If not, then why would climate scientists ever admit that man has nothing to do with any climate change that we have?
Xxxrayted, this is a comment you made a few days ago, and I just keep thinking about it. Your underlying idea is that everything can be reduced to "how much money will this make for me." That may be the way that your mind works, but I doubt it. Would you do ANYTHING if the price was right? Have you ever performed a selfless act? Money is a big motivator, but not the only one.

After Pearl Harbor, a lot of American men volunteered for military service because of patriotism, not money. Most Olympic athletes will never make a dime from their efforts, but they will spend much time and effort trying to succeed. Most musicians have another job that will help them to survive. They play because it gives them pleasure.

Scientists are not motivated only by money. Most could make far more in a different profession. They are interested in understanding how things work. They realize that their name will always be associated with their products. If they fake or conceal information, their reputation will be damaged, not for a few days, but forever. If they make one great discovery, they will be remembered for generations.

You are probably too young to personally remember the horror of polio, but I bet you know the names of Salk and Sabin. Neither one of them profited financially from their vaccines. But they lived the rest of their life as heroes, and continue to be remembered.

Also, your comment suggests that if global warming is not true, climate scientists would be "put out of business." You seem to think that if global warming was suddenly found to be incorrect, there would suddenly be no work for climate scientists. Why should that be? Do you think a whole area of science would suddenly vanish if one question was answered decisively? That doesn't even make sense.

I rambled on for so long, because I believe you now accept that the vast majority of climate scientists endorse the idea of manmade climate change. That's why you are trying hard to come up with an explanation that doesn't force you to alter your worldview. What you are proposing is that there is a worldwide conspiracy of climate scientists to dupe the public. The only possible reason you can come up with is greed, but that doesn't wash.

I don't know many people that used the word conservative and GW in the same sentence including myself. GW was responsible for the medicare expansion, giving money to Africa to fight aids in an apparent attempt to buy black votes in this country, responsible for his idiotic environmental crap like light bulbs and lower emission diesel fuel that hurts transportation companies, and his passing out debit cards to Katrina victims was hardly a conservative move at all.
Democrats are experts on dividing this country. I mean, Republicans were against government forcing insurance companies to cover birth control pills, and that's a war on women? Now anything you say about that big-eared creep is racist, and that's what they promote and people are brainwashed enough to believe it.
Democrats have no ideas and never did outside of taxing the rich and giving it to the poor. It's more productive for them to promote how evil the Republicans are. Republicans don't like blacks, gays, women, uninsured citizens, poor people and the list goes on and on. That's how Democrats get power in this country; to turn everybody against Republicans. Their promotion of hate really works unfortunately.
I agree that GW Bush is the opposite of Conservative, but who got him elected twice? The Conservatives. It's going to be tough to sell me on the concept that it was the Democrats who divided this nation when I have seen old black and white footage of Conservative Christian Republicans pointing their fingers and banging on the pulpit and preaching the evils of blacks, gays, young people, Elvis, Rock and Roll, the public school system, science, atheists, Muslim Americans... and in the footage I saw of Ronald Reagan when he was young, he referred to the youth of the counter culture as something less than animal. Whether you realize it or not, the Conservative Christian right has behaved for many decades as if they had a monopoly on god and country. That is not what this nation was founded upon and many Americans have now realized that the same people who point their fingers and judge others, as they have for so many years, often times end up being ten times more vile and wicked than the "sinners, Liberals and commies" they have been pointing at. That is why the Tea Party is failing right now. Because they are really just older, white, Christian Conservative right wing extremists, and the whole cashing in on Jesus for a corporate or political agenda has worn thin.

Here's the thing for me: when you mix politics with anything, always suspect a rat in the room. I have no problem with man-made global warming provided it has some kind of evidence. Rain, snow or wind is not evidence to me.
While I have no religion even though I was raised Catholic, I do believe that this world was created by a supreme being. I believe that supreme being put all life here and gave us a planet that would accommodate our needs. Does it work perfect all the time? No, but that's what paradise is supposed to be.
Non believers call this "nature" or perhaps "mother nature." I don't believe for one minute that this supreme gave us the power to destroy this planet. We can end mans existence, animals and insects, but we don't have the power to destroy this planet. Even if we ended all life here, eventually, it will start again if it is God's will.
I also believe that God (mother nature) has a cleansing process we've yet to understand. It's been going on for many centuries after volcanic activity, fires and all that carbon dioxide that we and animals breathe out of our bodies. So they say, water vapor is one of the worst culprits of global warming. How has all this cleaned itself up these millions of years?
I don't believe climate change started during the industrial buildup of this world, I believe that climate change is as old as the earth itself. And even if we stopped every motorized vehicle, closed down every factory, we would still have climate change.
Speaking of which, how much money would we have to payout to satisfy environmentalists? 10 trillion, 50 trillion, 100 trillion? What? Because if there is no end game here, all we are really doing is burning up our money to stop something we have no ability to stop.
Do you believe that Jesus was God's son? Is that what you mean when you say "non-believers", because I, like the majority of the founders of this nation, consider myself a Deist. That's my own personal belief, and like all religion, it is why it doesn't belong any way near a science class or a political speech or in Sarah Palin's case when she was selling a pipeline in front of her church congregation as being "God's will", an energy industry corporate agenda..

There is obvious and very clear evidence that the industrial revolution was the start of our climate changing, and the fact that the planet's climate has changed in the past, doesn't change this scientifically proven fact. I think people owe the future generations of young people a little more of a try than to throw our hands in the air and say there's nothing anyone can ever do about it. Did you know that Exxon Mobile doesn't consider itself an American company? Are you aware that the rightwing Conservative group called Citizens United got something passed that allows foreign corporations to donate unlimited amounts of money to our American elections without disclosing how much or where it came from? That means China, or anyone out of our country for that matter, could be swaying our nations elections. Does this sound American to you? Are these wealthy out of country contributions coming from the "Patriots" I always hear you guys talking about? Is the oil billionaire sponsored Tea Party really what anyone would call grassroots? This is all about corporate and religious agendas, fueled by people who are willing to enforce fascism on this country to get what they think is best for them. Before you randomly start blurting out liar, I worked for Citizens United and shook David Bossie's slimy hand. I have seen behind the curtain of the real face of rightwing Conservatism and can tell you first hand that they are responsible for selling out America.
