Indeed, this incestous relationship is the definition of neo-corporatism from what I understand from Wikipedia. Corporatism may also refer to economic tripartism involving negotiations between business, labour, and state interest groups to establish economic policy. I.e Norway has a corporatist economy due to the largest corporations that control the economy are 40-50% State owned, the National Labor Organization LO controls the unions of all of them, The Labor Party which is part of the structural organization of LO controls government and legislation. This type of organization is common too all huge multinational and national corporations. They don't want free market because they benefit from closed markets and state subsidies, so socialists are the natural ally for big capitalists. Calling it crony capitalism as the GOP Rhino's does is a big mistake, because it is corporatism (I guess they are afraid of offending their own corporatist interests). Big Business will always favor the socialist agenda, they did so in Nazi Germany and they do so now in USA and all other countries of the world.Linkhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwegian_Confederation_of_Trade_Unions
Excellent examples, and proof of Husein's agenda in taking over the auto industry (Hitler's Volks Wagen, Husien' Chevy Volt). Then there is the destruction of our energy infrastructure in his attempt to force an inferior technology, in turn driving up the cost of energy, with an end goal of Nationalizing energy production.Did I mention health care?And the libs blindly follow, like cattle to the slaughter...

What I'm saying is Conservatives imposed their Religious views on govt before it was enabled, as opposed to the obverse occurring.
I agree, so in conclusion the US Constitution should be the binding philosophy of all conservative movements?Absolutely!!! At least here in the US. The rest of the world can define and practice conservatism however they want.As far as the WBC goes, they claim to be Christians that adhere to a strict literal translation of the Bible, but I'm not going to waste any time looking any further than that. I WILL continue to fight to make sure that they have the freedom to spew their vile hatred.
And the libs blindly follow, like cattle to the slaughter...
""Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." "
Maybe then one of my favorite statements is the biggest problem for the Republican party. I always say libs can not thing for themselves which is true, they mimic MM, the DNC and a few others.I/we as Republicans or Conservatives think for ourselves so even though we may be of the same party we are different and think for ourselves?
Well one can dedicate a whole thread to the disgusting WBC.The problem though, how can we get all the conservative groups to work together with the constitution as framework?Obama won with only 25-30% of the vote, so the socialists are not in majority, same in other countries around the world. The socialista are able to form minority government control because the conservatives don't work together.In Norway this year its election, so it will be interestent to see but as always I fear the conservative groups will not work together. Just as the libertarians and social conservative will not work together in USA, the Christian peoples party, conservative party and the progress party (the most right wing party in norway) will not work together in Norway, even though in both countries "the right" is in majority.And as principled conservatives, we can't compromise with each other in order to stop them from taking us with them to the slaughter EDIT: So why isnt the second part of this law taken into practice? In the US children are being expelled from practicing their free excersise of religion.
So how do you get if at all possible the libertarians and conservative christians to work together and set aside the abortion issue, and get isolationists and pro interventionalist to put aside foreign policy and all together work towards implementing the constitutional restriction and reduction on government first?
For the most part, they are working together. It's the damned republican party that's adrift. Each group has it's members that are out on the fringes, but all are against socialism. The people that choose to sit out elections, based on whatever agenda they may have, are no better than Obama democrats as far as I'm concerned. If they refuse to help stop it, they might as well learn to like it; because it's not going away without a concerted effort.
I hate to say I did not vote in the last election because I was felt betrayed by the progress party and conservative party due to some of it members being "RHINO". That being said, you can't defeat the democrats without rallying the non voters. It seems swift destruction/reformation of the Republican party is necessary in the US.The problem in Norway is that two biggest right wing parties, the Conservative Party and the Progress Party focuses on stealing each other votes and scoring political points against each other instead of working together. I hope this changes this election though but I don't think so.And it also looks to me as the libertarians want to focus on that they are for gay marriage by not wanting state legislating it and want abortion to be free just to score political favor with the libs and pissing off the social conservatives. So I don't really see the sides working together.And for the moment it seems that the Left is winning with minority government when the right has the most votes. How can this be stopped?
This is the reality of a third party movement. The two right leaning parties would spend all their time trying to reach supporters of the other party. The dems would love it.
IOh yes, it is the reason I made this thread. Socialists, Communists, Greens (watermelons) and liberals on the left have no problem cooperating with each other even though they differ on specifics. For exampleLabor Party focuses on jobs/empoyment through government intervention in the economy, often too some degree of detrimental impact on the environment. Labor Party is also pro nato and pro EUSocialist Left focuses on wellfare and open immigration/refugee, foreign aid to totalitarian regimes, anti EU/NATO and pro LGBT issuesGreen focuses on environment through taxation, creating national parks, stopping infrastructure and housing developmentBut they all agree on the expansion of state, sometimes socialist left protests against labor party pro NATO warmongering, green protests Labor party infrastucture for media circus, but nothing changes as they all agree on the socialist-communist agenda.While on the right you haveConservative Party want less taxation/regulation but also spending 80% of their time distancing themselves from the progress party in order to not be viewed as racist due to the progress party view on immigration.Progress Party want less taxation/regulation but also stricter immigration and spend 80% of their time dealing/answering political uncorrectness issues from the left.Instead of both focusing on cooperation on taxation they try to squeeze as many voters from the other right party as possible.
