Socialism is suicide, as all, except "True Believers", can now clearly see

Liberals invaded the declining Democratic Party of the late 1960s and took over. With them came a rash of other ugly creatures such as Communists, Anarchists, Socialists, Atheists, Feminists, Libertarians, Lesbians, Gays, Agnostics, the anti military, the anti nuclear, Black Panthers and the anti Western Muslims Black or ortherwise.

What we got was a decline in moral standards. Liberals attacks the Church, invades secular governments and make them worse. Liberalism is for big government and absolutely backs not having "God" in anything. Yet Liberals say that they are Christian. Is that a huge oxymoron or not?

Wow, you really opened my eyes! I am trading in my Democrat Card today, not only because of your spot-on diagnosis of the state of the Liberal...I mean Democratic...Party but because today is the first time I heard Phil Och's "Outside of a Small Circle of Friends" which was released in 1967 (and totally complements your viewpoint) although I'm not sure what his party affiliation was...

...wait a minute, that song was an spoof, much like "The Colbert Report" is an ironic take on right-wing bloviators...

I guess Conservatism Is Right! And Today, as our Government slides into credit default within the next 48 hours (even as many nations in the EU are desparately trying to AVOID that same fate) thanks to the "Just Say No" Tea Party (at least SOMEBODY finally listened to Nancy Reagan...) you could say Conservatism is EXTREMELY RIGHT!!

Wait a minute - I meant to say Phil Och's song "Love Me, I'm a Liberal" but even "Outside" is apropo today, some 40 years after it was released.
