I think there is this false perception that I do not like conservatives, and have something against them. In a way that is true. I am conservative. The only change I’ve been through in about 20 years of political evolution is the fact that I am now against the death penalty simply because I am so staunchly pro-life. It is rather ludicrous to be against abortion, but yet want to put criminals to death. It just doesn’t work. Other than that, I am as conservative (maybe a little more) as I was when Reagan was in office.
The problem is the fact that conservatives have left me. I’ve not changed. They have – oh, not all of them, not even most of them, but there is a certain group, lead primarily by the talk show worshiping lotus eaters, who have taken the ideals and abject love for this nation and perverted it.
There is a remarkable hypocrisy that drips from pore of their bodies. They are the only heirs of Reagan. The GOP has betrayed Reagan. They GOP has betrayed them. They know better. They are the be all and end all of all things conservative.
One of the things that fascinates me is the sway a certain group of conservatives are very much in your face about being conservative, the disciples of Ronald Reagan, but never mention they are Republican. There is a very real disconnect between honest Republicans and the conservatives who pretend to be Republican. Fortunately the maggots are starting to congeal around the rotting corpse of extreme conservative “values”. I’ve already brought up Chuck Baldwin’s platform, that is in many ways identical to that of Barack Obama when it comes to foreign policy. Then there is Bob Barr who just knows he is going to derail John McCain. I have one question: What good will it do?
Republicans may have good cause to worry.
A run by Barr could be to John McCain “what Ralph Nader was to Al Gore – ruinous,” wrote George Will in Newsweek. Some party experts believe Barr could siphon off essential conservative votes from Sen. John McCain, about whom many rightward voters have been less than enthusiastic. Right-talking radio hosts – Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, and Ann Coulter – have expressed reservations about McCain or have been downright dismissive. The American Spectator editorialized last month that “conservatives see the choice of McCain or the Democrats as analogous to picking between being punched in the stomach or kneed in the groin.” Enter Bob Barr, who rose to prominence during the 1990s as a Republican party pit bull….Inquirer: Pundits have called a Barr candidacy a possible spoiler for Republicans.
Barr: I’m no more a spoiler for John McCain than John McCain could be a spoiler for me. The notion that Republicans see a third-party candidate as spoiling their chances simply illustrates the arrogance of the two-party system. Republicans and Democrats have come to view themselves as the only ones with a God-given right to choose a president. I want to offer voters something they will not get from the two major parties. If my platform polls well, it will be because the voters contrast it with McCain and whatever Democrat senator wins the nomination. If my platform polls well, its because the agenda I espouse is preferable. By offering a choice, it’s something the other candidates should embrace rather than whine about….”
Oh the arrogance.
Conservatives claim to be against abortion. We all know Barack Obama candidate to probably ever come around. Sam Brownback is the most honest of the anti-immigration conservatives. During the GOP primary, is the most pro-abortionhe castigated Tom Tancredo for taking money from John Tanton, who is the most vicious pro-abortion supporter out there, until the arrival of Barack Obama. It is also about Garrett Hardin and his abortion agenda.
Chuck Baldwin of the Constitution Party is running on a strong anti-abortion platform.
Oh, the hypocrisy!
Immigration reform is not about national security. It is not about terror. It is about population control – nothing more.
Tanton became the chairman of Sierra Club’s Population Committee in 1971. Two years later, he was on the staff of Zero Population Growth (ZPG). In 1975, he became president of ZPG, a position he held until 1978. The surge in the zero population growth movement and concern about population increase in the United States steadily declined in the late 1970s as it became accepted that population growth rates had fallen sharply since the baby boom years following World War Two.
Tanton gradually changed his focus from population control and the environment to immigration issues. Along with other leading ZPG members who regarded immigration control as the main solution to population control in the United States, Tanton left ZPG in 1978 and in 1979 created FAIR. According to two observers of this split, “Their idea was that FAIR would take no stand on abortion and other controversial family planning issues in order to attract a wider constituency which would work for immigration reform not only for environmental reasons, but for economic relief for the working poor and taxpayers, for social cohesion, and for national security.” In contrast, ZPG evolved to focus more on gender-related education, women’s issues, and family planning than on population restriction policies as a solution to environmental problems.

While all of this is going on, life-long Republicans who are turned off by all of this pandering hate either do not vote or turn independent. It is a win-win situation for conservatives who, I swear, hate the GOP and want to see it destroyed.
FORTUNATELY – we have John McCain this year!
MESSENGERS OF HATE
Malkin has made a big deal about Jeremiah Wright and his “hate.
Obama’s best-selling “Audacity of Hope” is named after the first sermon of Wright’s that he heard — decades ago — in which the pastor of racial resentment inveighed against an environment “where white folks’ greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere.” Yet, only now has Obama concluded that Wright’s sermons are “a bunch of rants that aren’t grounded in truth.”
Welcome to the Jive Talk Express….”
The problem is her little nasty little anti-immigration friends are no different from Jeremiah Wright. Last December, Lee Cokorinos penned an excellent series about the racist roots of the anti-immigration movement.
Frankly, I don’t see where this list is any different from the “hate” Jeremiah Wright preaches.
WILLING TO SELL OUT THE COUNTRY
Tom Tancredo is a perfect example of an out of control conservative who is willing to sell out the country to get his own nasty way, and that of his handler.
