Good morning all.  I found this place while searching for a new conservative forum to post on.

After spending some time reading various threads here, I thought I'd sign up and participate.

Will I always have to fill out the verification questions?  If so, I may not be here long.

Welcome to the forum rich_t.
You shouldn't have to do it each time only at the initial sign up .  We will contact our IT support and get it checked out.  In the meantime you might try a different browser.  Toy (http://smileys.on-my-web.com/repository/Others/others-085.gif)

Hello fellow conservatives!  I felt the need for a forum in which to vent and share my thoughts.  This looked like a good one.  I'm excited to get started.

I'm a retired guy.  I have numerous hobbies, including guitar, Zumba, and my English Bulldogs.  I've been married since before God took Adam's rib, or at least it seems that way.  I have rather definite and strongly held opinions.  I'm outspoken and direct.  I won't engage in any name calling or personal attacks on this board, but if you feel your ears burning while reading my comments, I'm probably talking about you.  :ttoung:

My real political interest is in kicking the communists, totalitarian socialists, and atheists out of our government.  And that includes kicking them out of our school systems.

I look forward to participating with you all.

I'm a dad and a Marine infantry combat vet, wounded in action, and I'm just fed up with what I perceive as the decline and fall of America. I'm fed up with all these spoiled brats bitching about how tough it is and blaming everybody but themselves (any convenient target will do, rich people, business leaders, oil companies etc) for their own laziness and failures to achieve. 

I'm disgusted with the attempts of the (apparently) homosexual-dominated entertainment industry to shove their warped view of morality down our throats at every opportunity. (The latest outrage is NBC's new primetime sitcom, The New Normal.

I see this wonderful country that I fought for, that my family has fought for since Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville, becoming weak and effete. So I'm here to vent I guess.

I agree with everything you said, though I hadn't heard of the (new normal?) as of yet, sounds like more lib BS attempting to justify their perversions on us.

Hmm..Don't think the young kids even know about the battles of Chancellorsville, Fredericksburg and  Spotsylvania. (also know as the Wilderness Campaign)  Inless there from Virginia or the South.   Are you a Southern Gentleman?

Northern by birth, Southern by the Grace of God. I've lived in the South most of my adult life. My G.G.G. Grandfather was with the 27th Connecticut, spent 12 hours pinned down on the field beneath Mayre's Heights at Fredericksburg and was later captured at Chancellorsville by Jackson's "Foot Cavalry."  :smile:

Thank you, and yes it is. About a couple of dudes who are "married" to each other and hire a woman to have a baby for them. It's ratings may serve as a measure of our decay.

Guess I'm the newest member. Looks like a cool board. Most of my posts
are in the War and Miscalculation of WW2 threads.

I told some friends about this forum so there might be some more newbs. We're
all conservatives fed up with our current board.

I'm upset and will be up all night waiting for the big SC decision in about 11 hours.

 Welcome, skuttlebutt! Learning things the hard way is, as Solar points out, the ONLY way to REALLY learn. Who was it who said, "If when you're young you're not a liberal, you have no heart. If when you're older you're not a conservative, you have no brain." Something like that...

Anyway, WELCOME!  :tounge: :tounge:

Good day fellow conservatives.

New here, figured I would introduce myself.

From central Wisconsin 25 year old male, I'm a paramedic but am currently working at a local gun shop due to lack of jobs in the area. Attending the local technical college as time permits for this and that (mainly fire fighting related courses).

I just figured it would be nice to get to talk to other like minded people other than the folks that come into the shop.

God Bless!

Good evening all.  I am brand new here, but thought it proper to introduce myself so no one thinks I am some lurker.
I am a Christian, conservative, homeschooling, mother of soon-to-be four kids.  I am very interested in politics, I am here to learn even more and gain more perspective.  Most of the forums that I posted to in the past were not very tolerant of conservative ideas.  I am happy to have found a place where I can be conservative and not be called all the usual names.

Welcome Kari. You will find a lot of great links, information, and opinions here. Liberals are allowed to voice their opinions, which I like.

I will say, that some of the language can get into the R- rated territory. What can I say? We tend to be pretty passionate with our beliefs. I hope you hang around, share your opinions, and enjoy the site.

I'm not the site owner, just a guy that has come to like it around here. It's a decent bunch of people.

Nice having one more lady in house (on the boards) As you will see this is a adult board.  It is a conservative board but they allow other people in or it would be very boring.  Sounds like you have been around the net some.  So jump right in and enjoy yourself young lady.  I will be nice knowing what more woman think and there ideas.  Welcome   


If you know like minded ladies please pass the site address on.

Thank you both.   I expected that liberals would be welcome too, and as for language, well I am a grown up, if something offends, I will probably just hit the back button. 
I will certainly jump in here once I get the lay of the land a bit.  Nice to see a few other women here as well.

I second what Kramarat said, we do tend be a passionate group, especially as of late, since the left claims that traditional marriage is somehow hateful.
Can you even begin to wrap your head around that BS?

It's hard not to cuss, when someone is telling you that if you aren't good with same gender sex, you automatically are a hater. :mad:

I sometimes forget just how mixed up they can be.

Post by: JustKari on August 04, 2012, 09:02:07 AM
I have had trouble wrapping my head around the whole, you're a hating homophobic jerk because you don't agree with me, but I am NOT a bigot for saying hostile things to you, crap.  :blink:

I don't hate anyone, but I do believe in traditional marriage. I don't think any church should have to perform ceramonies (a covenant ceramony, no less) in a situation that they feel is wrong.  By using the word marriage in the legal jargon though, they could, eventuality, sue if a church will not perform them.  IMO.

I have had trouble wrapping my head around the whole, you're a hating homophobic jerk because you don't agree with me, but I am NOT a bigot for saying hostile things to you, crap.  :blink:

I don't hate anyone, but I do believe in traditional marriage. I don't think any church should have to perform ceramonies (a covenant ceramony, no less) in a situation that they feel is wrong.  By using the word marriage in the legal jargon though, they could, eventuality, sue if a church will not perform them.  IMO.

This entire issue would go away, if they would take the word "marriage" off the table. And stop demanding a certain behavior from everyone else. I don't care what gays do in the bedroom, I don't want to know about it, and I don't want to talk about it. They can do what they want. I won't try to force them to change, like they are attempting to do to us. :mad:

The LGBT community, comprises about 2% of the US population. My guess, is that within that group, the people that want to get married, comprise about 10%, (tops), of the 2%. It's unfathomable that they would expect everyone else to accept a complete redefinition of the word "marriage", to accomadate a few thousand. :blink:

Hey Hack,

Hey taxed,

I'm sure I have thoroughly annoyed y'all mods with my posts, and I apologize. Fogot my netiquette, but I have actually been quite an active forum member at various times in my life, and may be interested in becoming one here. I was dead serious about campaigning for Dole on the chalkboard during show and tell and  I was born in '90. That was a nice marginalizing anecdote. I frankly don't care much about my blog, just want people to talk to. seems like it might be better just to have a small blog and post on the forum.  Point of the blog is to reach people who's vote might be in the air. doubt they run rampant around these parts

Well Good morning everyone,

I've been posting here a few days and am just now discovering this site.  Took the time to read about all of you and feel like i will be welcome here.   As a personal rule, i try to watch my language and respect others that try but i also know that everyone is human.  Things like personal attacks and namecalling or knowing the id of a forum member and outing them are unacceptable to me. 
I am a recently retired chemical technician having worked at Bayer Co. lastly.  Have enjoyed substituting school after that until i was diagnosed with Stage 1 lung cancer. I am happy to say that I was diagnosed, treated and have recovered in less than 6 mths.  No chemo, no radiation, just periodic checks to make sure that the cancer is gone. 
Some of you talk like you are on up in years.  Well, we don't get older, just better.  I have learned to enjoy myself in whatever I do.
My husband is a Industrial PLC Tech at 3-m.  He is a 20 yr. vet of the VN theatre, having the rank of E7 upon discharge from the AF.   He was dog trainer/handler
We have four children and 7 grands and 3 great grands.
My hobbies are singing and playing piano and or organ.  i've been pianist for several churches but most recently enjoy getting together with friends and just [playing  for the love of it.  Husband learned to play a bass guitar so he could go with us when we do an event.  Also have two grandsons that have gradually fell into playing instruments with us.
We love to camp and fish and we are both natives of NC where we spend all of our extra time.  Our jobs have held us in SC but we've managed to have a good life here and made a few friends as time passed.
Looking foward to conversations with all of you and it is not my intent to offend anybody but i have to disagree with the liberal, looney toon agenda.  I can't believe that we have cabinet members in congress making decisions for us along liberal agendas.

Post by: Pariah on November 02, 2012, 10:20:21 PM
Greetings, everyone!
Call me Pariah, because at least where I live in my own little corner of Georgia, that's what I am. I come to this forum... seeking help I guess.

You see, the term Pariah fits me because that's what I am. I'm an Asian-American living in this county, and the only one to boot. I deal with a lot of racism, but that's neither here nor there, and that's not what I need help with.

I'm 24 years old, with a wife and 2 kids. I have a pretty good job, though it could always be better...

I also voted for Obama in 2008.
I'm not making that mistake again.

You see, back then I was still naive to exactly how the world works. I suffered through the Bush era along with a lot of people - that's a lie, really. Bush honestly did the best he could with what he had in hindsight, but at the time I was angry and bitter. To this day I believe that Afghanistan was the right decision but still firmly believe that Iraq was just him finishing Daddy's war. However, the Patriot Act and No Child Left Behind Act both enrage me to no end, and I still don't see how these even exist.

Back in 2008, I voted for Obama because he seemed so flippin' awesome it was awe inspiring. I believed that everything he said was amazing, and held on to every word and speech as if it were solid gold. I hated McCain, and even today I still think he'd have been an awful president (on par with what we got), but I think I could have swallowed it and voted for him if Sarah freaking Palin wasn't on the ticket.

Also I voted for him because he was black and I love spiting the racists around here. I lost 4 tires and got assaulted by 5 huge white dudes for that.

But that's also not my problem (I talk too much). You live, you learn that most politicians are liars, and you go at it again.

It's November 2nd, and I still haven't decided who to vote for. You see, here's my problem (finally):

Problem 1: Economically I'm very conservative and believe that a businessman like Romney is perfect for the job; he knows how business works. That said, I'm rather worried that the tax cuts Romney wants to give to the rich will backfire spectacularly. Instead of using that money to create jobs, they'll instead sit on it and still not create jobs, and we'll still be stuck in the same hole we're in now. So do I vote for him and hope for the best, that people will do the right thing? Or should I keep my cynicism alive and think that rich people are corrupt?

Problem 2: Socially, I'm very liberal. I believe in gay marriage, for example (though I also believe that churches shouldn't be forced to do it if they don't want to); I believe in abortion ONLY IN THE CASE OF RAPE (if you get knocked up, deal with it. It's your fault), but only because our adoption system is so complete and utter trash that it needs to be reworked. That's just two issues that I know I don't agree with Romney (and a lot of people here) on, but it's part of my core values (or maybe lack thereof; the dark corners of the Internet do very nasty things to you).

Problem 3: This is a big one, especially around where I live, and possibly unrelated to the election - I don't hate Islam. As a Christian, it's impossible for me to hate them (being picked on so much around here, I find solace in my family and in God). I'm able to distinguish between Radicals and Moderate Muslims, and many that I've talked to are pretty cool people. There are actually a lot of good values in the Koran, and though I think that Muslims are misguided, I still consider them good people. Except the terrorists.

So to summarize:
Do I go with the person that I know has a better chance of fixing the country, or the one who values civil liberties? Should I let my feelings on Islam affect my vote?

I confused. Please help.

P.S. I came here because conservatives are much less crazy than liberals. More honest answers.

Welcome young man.  I also think we are less crazy.   :lol:

I look at it this way.   If I own a business and it was in trouble like we are now. Who would i hire to fix my business problems.  The kid in the White House has NO understanding of business.  And business is what makes the world go around.  My question to you would be WHO would you hire to fix the problem(s) if it was you business knowing what you know now.   I know M R is a RINO but he has more savvy in his little finger then B O had in his in his life time. 

Something to think about.  WHO is B O, WHAT do you know about him, other then what he tell you.   Where I come from a man's word is his bond. 

But that's just my way of thinking.

Look at it this way, first off, it's their money, not the Govts. to steal and redistribute to buy votes.
Secondly, were in debt, all because both party's over spend, we need to cut their power to tax, because you're next.
And third, and most important, Govt Does Not create jobs, it gets in the way of job creation.
A Govt job is not a job, it a draw on the economy, it causes higher taxes, all the jobs Hussein was supposed to have created through Green energy programs, are a net drain on the economy, because they require the support of tax dollars to exist.

Mitt has a proven track record in business, Hussein had four years and it's worse now than when he entered office, and his plan is four more years of the same.
Shouldn't be so hard...

Libs are just more emotional and tend not to think things through, but rather react emotionally, while Conservatives like to weigh individual issues and determine if they are what our Founders intended.

You'll find that most Dim issues pushed forward are designed to gain them power and more votes, while Conservatives look at these issues as to what is better for the country as a whole, not some special interest group.

Look at it this way, first off, it's their money, not the Govts. to steal and redistribute to buy votes.
Secondly, were in debt, all because both party's over spend, we need to cut their power to tax, because you're next.
And third, and most important, Govt Does Not create jobs, it gets in the way of job creation.
A Govt job is not a job, it a draw on the economy, it causes higher taxes, all the jobs Hussein was supposed to have created through Green energy programs, are a net drain on the economy, because they require the support of tax dollars to exist.

It IS their money, and I sincerely believe that people shouldn't take risks that they're not prepared for or want to do with it. Not every rich person was a businessman, and especially in the South there's a lot of "old money" that really want nothing to do with the business world, preferring instead to sit on their money till the end of time.

But I just can't abide by those people who want tax cuts for their income bracket, yet do nothing with the extra income. I'm a big believer in the advancement of America and humanity as a whole, and sitting on your massive amounts of cash does nothing for anyone. I'm not saying that the gov't should TAKE the money from them, or that the current tax level is correct (personally I feel that the income tax system as a whole needs a massive overhaul because it's too easy for anyone in any tax bracket to weasel out of actually paying taxes), but I feel like it's an imperative that we advance humanity to far greater things than what we are.

For example, private research always goes farther than government funded research. Look at how far computers advanced because of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. Or how Virgin Galactic successfully got into space before the gov't started paying them to help them do it. With privately funded research, we could probably have colonies on the bleedin' moon by now! We have some of the richest people on Earth that could help to eliminate American poverty, advance education to Japan-like levels, and maybe have even found by now vaccines or maybe even cures to major diseases.

But they don't because they're greedy f*ckwits who sit on their money and laugh at everyone's misery!

...that's not a Romney issue, that's an issue I have with the "elite" that support him. I truly believe that Romney wants the best for this country, but I'm not sure the people he supposedly represents have the same agenda as him. He wants tax cuts so people will create jobs, but I think people are either to afraid of failure or too greedy to try and create those jobs.

Quote
Again, simple, it's a States Rights issue, not a Federal one!

Personally I feel like it's both: I feel that both State and Federal governments should work together (heresy, I say!) and come to an agreeable solution that works best for everybody, rather than the State trying to kick out Federal and Federal trying to overpower state.

I wish it were that easy. Obama did some pretty crappy things, to be sure, but I feel that a lot of that is not just him, but the fact that the House and Senate let those things happen. To me it's telling when Congress caves and lets the president do what he wants. I don't think it's right now, and if Romney gets it, I don't think it'll be right for him to do the same.

I am emotional, that's for sure. But my emotions are bitter and cynical - I see everything through jade-colored glasses and honestly, I expect the worst more than I hope for the best. It's hard to disassociate my feelings with my analytical thought, so everything I say comes across as being biased; to Reps, I sound liberal and to Dems, I sound conservative.

Really I'm just angry.

This is for Pariah and anyone else who hasn't made up their mind about voting.

If you were robbed, would you hand the robber a gun to rob you again?   That's what you would be doing in my opinion if you vote for Obama again.  Why not give Romney a chance.  Right now, he is our only hope for our future.

If you believed Obama the first time on all the things he promised and he didn't deliver any of them, why would anyone even think of voting for him again, knowing you can't believe in him.  Why not give the alternative, Romney, a try.  Don't he deserve a chance for you to believe in him, especially since he has been a successful Governor and successful in other things he endevered to accomplish.

The way I see it, Obama hasn't even spent much of his time in the Oval Office like he was supposed to do.  He didn't have this country at heart.......he was selfish and used his time in office while he could,  to vacation, do sports, photo opts at every chance, cater to the celebrity movie stars to get on camera, and hasn't even continued to help the people who were hurt in New York and New Jersey.   Oh he did make a photo opt..........so he would appear to be doing his job during crisis to help his election.  But all he did was the same thing all Presidents have done.....and yet they give him credit for being so attentive......Those people are still crying out for help and have seen no one coming to help in New York.   Obama has let them down.  And then he critisizes Bush for Katrina.  He has no right to claim victory over Sandy and brag that he has helped.  All he did was give statements to FEMA... He didn't make sure that they showed up.

Then there is the matter of trust.........something that is lacking where Obama is concerned.   Why would anyone vote for Obama when he allowed those 4 Americans to be killed when the whole time he had been notified about the danger by several people including the American Ambassador himself,  way before the event happened in Bengazzi and he LIED about not knowing and blamed a video and then lied about that and said he blamed it on terriorists, and that was a direct LIE.  Obama doesn't have the know-how nor the courage to make the right decision about saving a life.........why would anyone think he would care about ours as a citizens! 

He continues to deny, along with all his staff and State Dept., that they knew anything about sending in help............That in itself, should make anyone eery of casting a vote for Obama.   

So since he and Romney are the only ones who are being considered, Romney should be the first name anyone with gumption would consider voting for and giving a chance to show us he has hope for us in the future.

And that folks, is just my opinion, and seems obvious to me. :rolleyes:

Sorry Pariah, if I got carried away.........but Obama urps me and has hurt a lot of people including  the United States of AMerica................. The big deceiver of all times.  :sneaky:

Forums aren't something new to me, I thought about taking a long rest from any Political discussions since in the end it has no effect on what all of us believe.  I think the past 4 years I have harbored so much hatred for the mess living on Pennsylvania Ave it just took all the fun out of posting.  I made no new friends and certainly lost none and I still hate the people living on Pennsylvania Ave.  I'm sure somewhere you would find my name on a long list of "who to watch closely"... so I guess I'll just continue hating, but with a smile.

Not in IT exactly.  Spent first 8 years in USAF in Air Weather Service.  After that went into Illinois Bell Telephone Co.

Function at IBT was Electronic Switching Tech (#1 ESS).  We were one for the first few ESS operations in the US.  We went digital in spring of 1970.  In the early days of ESS we techs did everything from software creation/modification/trouble shooting (at Assembly language level), hardware mainlines and modification, pretty much anything.  Our "class" was the 3rd class through the IBT school at the time.

Worked in the front-lines of wire-line telecom and watched all the changes from plain old phones to some of the best business communication systems at the time.

Went through all the corporate transitions..IBT -> Ameritech -> SBC -> AT+T.  It was a fun time.  I was one of the lucky ones who got to earn his living doing what he liked to do.  Vocation = Avocation.

Hello, I am a 35 yr old married conservative woman from pottstown, PA, with no kids.  I wanted to find a place with people that have similar conservative values and just somwhere that I will fit in.  It is not easy finding like minded conservatives, and I believe we are a dying breed.  I've been reading Greg Gutfelds book "The Joy of Hate", and it has encouraged me to reach out as a conservative and no be ashamed and to not fear that I will not be liked.  Liberals will reject you almost instantly if they found our you are consesrvative.  Heck, my own sister disowned me for voting for Mitt Romney.  Anyway, I hope to learn more, make more friends, share conservative ideals, and discuss even some liberal ideals while here on this site.

Welcome!  Gutfeld is hilarious, he makes watching The Five worthwhile.  :biggrin:

Totally.  You can never capture it.  How many times I thought it "clicked", and got so excited and boasted how my game has raised another level, only to just go completely helicopter the next day.  It really is about how you attach your mind to your body. If at any point they are off, forget it.

Welcome to Conservative Political Forum.
 
This is a place you can tell us about yourself if you wish. 
 
Please remember safety first at all times.  The net is not a place to give out private information. 
 
Gender, age and state would be safe.  Even a very large city.   Pass all other information by PM or E-Mail only if and when you feel very safe about it. 
 
I am walkstall as I use this aka on more the one board.  On this board I am just call walks.   Male, Washington State, Age hmmm.. lol I remember the big bang, if that will help.   Some of us go back 10 or more years with each other from other boards.  We hope you enjoy yourself.

Walks:

I am a sixty-five year old conservative who has zero use for the Republican Party.  As far as I am concerned, the Republican Party is little more than a retarded version of a half-witted Democrat.  I do not fall for the bi-polar politics that pit the Republicrats agains the Demopublicans.  The mess that our nation is in is a direct result of the combined efforts of both major political parties to feather their own nests at the expense of the American taxpayer. 

I live as a recluse with my wife in northwest Arkansas, in the southern portion of the Ozark forest and plateau because I got fed up with the "politics as usual" male bovine feces that oozes out of Washington, DC, on a daily basis. 

We -- the wife and I -- consider ourselves "survivalists" in the sense that we have prepared for the day when the liberals turn this once free nation into a socialistic nightmare, which appears to be happening on an almost hourly basis.  We have stockpiled dried food, garden seed, chickens, geese, guns, ammo, gold, silver and a resolute determination to resist tyranny even if it means that we sacrifice our lives in the name of freedom.

G'day y'all,

I am a friendly sort of chappie and a friend...cyber pal..has said that this forum has potential. I currently post on a left dominated forum which is quite toxic....but I would suggest that I give as good as I get. I am indeed a Conservative Aussie and it is with Great Pleasure that I can now say that we kicked a bunch of left wing drongos to the turf on September 7th.....sigh...would that the good ole USA could have followed suit. I am just above the 21 mark...OK...55 yo mark... though I did take up basketball last year...and am loving it. My traditional sports are cricket and Rugger of course.

I follow US politics a bit and am definitely either Blue Dog Dem or Conservative Repub....seems that I have a lot in common with both those groups. I consider Obama to be a dolt and Biden to be a twit; I think Hillary has had her day and frankly have a high opinion of Palin and McCain...except that they lost. I am polite to a fault unless attacked with gratuitous insults in which case the gloves are off and it's handbags at two paces. I have no idea yet how this place works but I intend to find out. Oh: and I sign my posts. It puts some people off but I've always done it and will continue to do so. It is basically out of politeness but is often misconstrued...usually by lefties and poms.

  There are some lib/trolls that slip through the net here ( I don't mind if they would  argue and counter argue, agree to disagree, that sort of thing) with the sole intention of thread de-railing and name calling. But  it seems as though they are dealt with efficiently.

You'll probably not find ANY support for my fellow Vietnam veteran John McCain, the no-load lying RINO trash no true conservative could EVER vote for, had it not been for the real candidate running as his VP. Had Palin not been on his ticket, Mushmouthed Maverick would have taken about the same number of votes as John "Lurch" Kerry.

Republicans in Name Only infest a party of rat bastard Democratic sympathizers like Weepy Boehner and that detestable Lindsay Graham. They are the party bulls who drank the commie Kool-Aid and spend like liberals, which they are.

HELLO, I'm a computer Know-nothing refugee from "political Crossfire Forum", where leftist rant and drivel are the soup de jour. I'm here to read some thoughtful discussion based on truth, kind of an alternative lifestyle choice coming from where I've been. I'm just afraid that too much real thought may fail to stimulate my argumentative writing style and I will not want to preach to the Choir. I'm fairly old, I remember warning my friends about Nixon's questionable "conservative" credentials, and the 1968 Gun Control Act stopping my impending purchase of my first Ruger Super Blackhawk. I was registered Libertarian till that left libertarian satellite radio personality ran for NY Governor(can't remember his name, no loss), now I'm Constitutional(no real party there) but I can't stomach calling myself Republican after all their betrayal of America(and my cousin was their first candidate for President). I'm a real life political refugee from the Marxist Republic of Aztlan(California), a state that my family helped create. I'm a disabled "jack of all trades", like the 17th century Catholic French church records recorded for my eponymous ancestor. My family still resides there(California) and here in Pennsylvania, where many of my immigrant ancestors first set foot in America. My family, part of it, were the leading edge of the pioneers who opened up North America for settlement, and some of my relatives' other ancestors were there to welcome them(or not).

He is not someone about whom I knew much until the 2008 effort but have heard similar comments about him previously. However, he was of the right tribe at the contest and hence was preferred to what got up on the day. Of Palin; she indeed is the real deal!!...imho.

 To be honest, I don't know what he is talking about. And never have. He's also commited more faux pas than Bush.

 The Americans weren't the only one raving about his speeches. The Europeans were mad for him too. But that's dying off.
 
I remember being open mouthed and speechless at one of my girl friends eulogising "He's SO intelligent". Back in the early heady days of "hope and change".

Greetings!
I's like to introduce myself. I'm a late 50's single father who resides South of the Border in a resort/retirement village. I'm an Independent conservative who believes the Constitution was the result of enlightened cooperation of some of our most brilliant minds. I was raised in the South in a FDR Democratic family, and was a good little Lefty for the first 40% or so of my life. I worked and voted for Jimmy Carter in 76 and then enlisted in the Navy a few weeks after his election, the beginning of my coming out of the mist. I was a Corpsman (I assume most here can pronounce it correctly  :cool:) so I have a soft spot for Marines, and always will. I know exactly the moment I became an Independent Constitutional conservative, when the tanks broke through the walls at Waco.
I'm not big on forums except one we had here locally which recently pulled it's own plug, the Lefties running it finally couldn't defend their shaky position any more, life does have it's little victories now and again.  :thumbup: So I thought I'd find a place a bit more comfortable. I hope this is it, and I look forward to some interesting discussions. This is my second attempt at a post, I blew the first with those strange letters thing, they give me fits!! I failed every color test designed by the Navy, must have something to do with it.
I am a lover of history, especially American and Meso-American/Pre-Columbian, which explains my handle/Maya name, given to me many years ago.....but that's another story. Anyway, hello to all!!

It was a name given me by an Aztec lady many moons ago while in the power circles on El Quemado. The names together have a different meaning. I'm only a "whirlwind" when provoked.

Here's a toe tapper for you in the meantime...... :thumbup:

Yea, know what you mean, where I am the weather these days is delightful, leads to lazy in me.
Ek= Star
Ehecatl= Wind/wind god
literal is star wind, deeper meaning is the energy that binds/connects the universe together. That was bestowed 30 years ago, you had to have been there.....was interesting times and places.

After a bit of pondering 51, I thought I might clarify. The name was given after many months completely unplugged from the modern world in the high desert mountains, a soul searching journey you might say, with a climax of a deeply personal understanding that we, and literally everything is "Ek Ehecatl", all IS God. Of course the Indians express this in different ways. After this we left to return to "the world" turned on the radio and the first thing we heard was about the USSR shooting down Flight 007, a while back, we almost went back to the mountains, maybe we should have. There was a sublime peace there....

In today's political era, the libs aren't going to address the complete failure of Obamacare or the stupendous incompetence surrounding their pathetic website. Saturday Night Live has made it a running joke, and now even David Gregory and Chris Matthews are making noises like they too want to distance themselves from their original flatbacking for the Obama 7th Fleet.

 I wanted to join and introduce myself to fellow conservatives. My name is Matt. I am a proud conservative. I am not really so much a Reagan conservative (I have doubts about "supply-side" economics, for instance) but an independent conservative. I used to be a progressive although I could never stand people like Bill Clinton or Nancy Pelosi. I am in favor of free-market enterprise, limited government, the Fair Tax (although I am open to a flat tax or a "head tax"). I am undecided on the abortion issue as of now. I have traditionally been prochoice but I find myself a moderate.

Several founding fathers of our great nation were religious liberals. I have in mind Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, and others. Like them, I am a religious liberal (a Unitarian Universalist; I am an agnostic who leans slightly towards deism). I am probably one of the few UUs who is also a conservative (I might be considered a neoconservative considering that I favor a peace-through-strength approach to foreign policy).

I am a 35 year old guy from California who loves his country, is proud of our military and law enforcement, and wants a society that is more responsible than "compassionate" (hence one reason I am a conservative).

Welcome to Conservative Political Forum.
 
This is a place you can tell us about yourself if you wish. 
 
Please remember safety first at all times.  The net is not a place to give out private information. 
 
Gender, age and state would be safe.  Even a very large city.   Pass all other information by PM or E-Mail only if and when you feel very safe about it. 
 
I am walkstall as I use this aka on more the one board.  On this board I am just call walks.   Male, Washington State, Age hmmm.. lol I remember the big bang, if that will help.   Some of us go back 10 or more years with each other from other boards.  We hope you enjoy yourself.

No gender, (given the date today) old enough to remember vividly the day Kennedy was shot (though this morning I felt as old as the nano-particle or VOID or whatever before the BIG BANG), a Floridian, not a native (though here more years than I want to admit being alive), and exist tempermentally and politically somewhere in the half-world of the extended South and the region of  Yankee transplants.

My name is the outlaw mortarman. I live in Sparta, WI. I served in the US Army from '76-'80 in Germany. Up until this last September I worked at the PX at Ft. McCoy as a cashier. It was a great job. I got to interact with real American heroes. I got laid off in September because the Sequester finally caught up with us. Also there was the impending shutdown to contend with. So now I am looking for a new job. Yes I am drawing unemployment, butt no more than I am allotted an' also consider that I had worked for the past 2 1/2 years an' earned it. It is called unemployment insurance an' is there for this sort of thing.

Also about myself. I am 57 years old an' an Atheist. Now before you get your hackles up, I am a true Atheist an' not one of those libtard Faux-Atheists who want's to replace religion with the gubmint. Unlike the President, I am not lying when I say that if you like your religion, you can keep it. Period. I prolly will lay out my philosophy as far as religion goes at a later time, butt suffice to say, I do believe that Faux-Atheism is trying to rid us of religion because the followers of this false philosophy are immoral an' true religions challenge that.

I think that's enough for now. I will get to know you an' you will get to know me.

Meaning that I don't fit the mold of what passes as conservative today. I am fiscally and socially conservative with a heavy leaning toward state rights. I am also pro labor union as I believe everyone should have a say in what goes on in his or her workplace and for keeping it as local as possible without all the democrat back scratching. I believe in America first trade policies and am not for any kind of policy that drives down America's standard of living. I am not pro amnesty whatsoever. So with these things said, hello again and I look forward to civil discussion.

I think you have a pretty good understanding of the concept, and welcome to the forum.
Though I have no doubt we can enlighten you on the union aspect, a worker has absolutely no right to dictate how his employer runs a PRIVATE entity, ever!
He doesn't like it, he has the right to seek other employment.

NOPE!  That's the old 'conservatives'.  Yall are dying off!   The new batch wants you to be Christian, by CHURCH AFFILIATION, be it Catholic, Baptist, Primitive Baptist, etc. etc.  (And a couple of particularly 'devout' Baptists told me my old CHRISTIAN religion was a 'dark religion'--whatever the hell that meant).  The 'wishy washy' PRESBYS and even LUTHERANS are TOAST in their eyes. Unitarians?  Forget about it!!  And the new group sure as hell have alot to say with who one prefers to sleep with!  (MORE THAN I DISCUSSED IT IN 60+ YEARS ON THE EARTH).  So nope, the CONSERVATISM is intrusive, restrictive, small minded and in your business (and your boxers).

You do know that at least part of Bush's new post-presidency cause is to help a group "Jews for Jesus" get JEWS signed up/signed on/'converted' to CHRISTIANITY so--if I got this straight (and believe me it is MUDDLED biblical 'theory' to me), when all the Jews convert, the whole lot of them and the 'born agains' will ascend to Heaven??  I guess leaving us sinners or undecideds to perish on the earth?   Anyway, apparently JEWISH groups are pissed and/or alarmed.  I have no idea what various Christian groups think about ti.

As you know this is all VERY subjective.  The OLD CONSERVATISM that I was raised with has been kicked in the ass and to the curb--BY THE NEW REPUBLICAN CLASS.  So PERHAPS we agree!  MANY of my best friends (and peripheral ones) were old time CONSERVATIVES.  Hell, I met and became friends with several of them WHEN I WORKED ON A REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE FOR MAYOR in my town back in the early 70's.  (Hell, I pedaled my bicyle at 12 and stuffed envelopes for BARRY GOLDWATER).  I damn near voted for BUSH I the 2nd time around UNTIL he gave us Clarence Thomas.  I would have MOST LIKELY voted for JOHN MC CAIN during his first run--EXCEPT ROVE on behalf of BUSH 2 DESTOYED him in SC with that vile/despicable/revolting 'whisper campaign'.  So be very careful your SO PRESUMPTIONS.  I can argue as vociferously my CONSERATIVE STREAK as my LIBERAL STREAK.  I have both!  Of course, I'll NEVER meet the purity standard of today's movement.

Wherein lies the problem, all of those since Reagan were pure RINO socialists.
This is the reason the TEA will kill them off in 2014, the base is sick of the scum running us deeper in debt to line their own pockets.
They are literally the same as the Dim party, the RINO just want us to move toward socialism at a slower pace, but both share the same goal.

I am new, live in Baltimore, Maryland, and I have 26 years under the belt. I am a young conservative, very interested in law and politics, and of course the Constitution. This is actually the first online forum I've joined. There isn't much discussing politics with my friends as my state is one of the bluest. My opinions have mostly been private, until now. It's nice to air them out. I hold pretty much mainstream conservative opinions, although I am finding most conservatives tend to be a bit more socially conservative than I am and more suspicious of the Republican Party. Well that's me in a nutshell.

Hey Uron, welcome.
The only thing in what you wrote that denotes liberal, is your ignorance on the environment.
Note the connection between liberal and ignorance there? Co2 is not a pollutant, it's an essential gas, one that allows our planet to prosper, the more, the better, the less, we die.

Hi Solar,
  Thanks^^.  That was probably a bit badly worded on my part.  However I did say gas pollutants and didn't just specify CO2.  Granted you are right, I had one individual (unfortunately extreme liberal *shiver*) who tried to explain to me that CO2 was bad on any level was bad.  I asked what the plants used to make oxygen, and was told the sun.  I about fell over on that one.  I'm not an environmental science major.  I've had 2 environmental science classes and some self study, I won't claim to be an expert. 
  I didn't go into all my beliefs, but I'm coming into your board.  I need to show that I'm not (or try not to be) whatever the stereotype of the hour is).

  I saw on the announcement that liberals were being requested to identify themselves.  I can follow directions, here is my announcement.  I am a liberal, or at least those internet quizzes keep telling me that I am.  I'll give opinions on some of the issues, hopefully I'm not as scary as the stereotypical liberal.  Gun Control:  I would support smart background checks, that take into account someone's ability to change and improve themselves.  I don't support gun bans or bullet/clip limits.  I have to draw the line at civilians being able to own nukes, I have to do something to redeem myself as a (insert expletive here) liberal  :tounge: .  Global Warming:  Liberals really need to step away from the term global warming and focus on reducing gas pollutants in general.  It's pretty well supported that these emissions can cause health problems.  Lowering these emissions would make people more productive, and help lead to a stronger nation.  I don't support cap and trade, it's stupid and won't help our environment.  Politics in general:  Seriously our politicians are broken.  I can bring up an issue with conservative, moderate, and other liberal friends and we can have a solution that all of us are happy with fairly quickly.  I'm pretty sure that our politicians are paid not to work with each other.  I'm talking about both parties here.     
Blessings

Kevmo signing on.  I spent 15 years on XXXXXXXXXXXX. 

Got booted for criticizing Jim Robinson when he compromised his conservative principles to endorse a candidate he said he would never endorse, whom he called a "lying, gun-grabbing, baby-killing, homosexual agenda loving statist. "

There's a certain natural rhythm to that, considering you got banned from Lamont's joint for being too conservative, after you were voted Conservative of the Year there.....

It's even more telling how liberals go to such extreme lengths to silence all opposing views, whatever they are. One stunt got pulled on me a few years back (long before Obama).

Walks and a few others might recall I had a blog over at mu.nu just before Ace of Spades showed up there. I had about 24 sites exchanging links with me, which I thought respectable after only a few months on the Net, and then some leftist complained to a library running a certain brand of censorship filters for content.

Turned out, every other library using that wide-used filtering program were all signed up for regular updates on ISP numbers to block for "their own protection." They didn't even have to read a list of who owned the ISP or why it was banned, just accept the update and it gets auto-added into blocking those nasty conservatives from public reading places. The efficiency in that one was breathtaking, Daddy Warbucks!

I pointed out something similar to JimRob, and he called me a newbie.   :confused:  I had a login date  with the forum only 2 months shorter than he had been.  Longer (in most respects, far longer) than almost all the others he had been conversing with on that particular thread. 

There are worse reasons for getting booted from a forum after 15 years than pointing out that the founder had betrayed his own stated conservative principles.

That's pretty much the reason I left my last forum after fifty thousand posts over the years.
The owner was doing things in direct conflict with Conservative principles and allowing members private information to be used against them.

You'll find this forum rock solid on Conservative principle, you have my word on that.

Absolutely agree! So stick around and we'll be happy to enlighten you, it's what we do, disseminate the truth about true Conservatism.
Bet you wind up changing your name if you do stick around, you'll be proud to call yourself a Conservative. :biggrin:
Oh, and you are absolutely right about the leftists always moving forward, or rather downward, and it's the GOP that's allowed it, and it's time for real change.

Hey y'all. Wuz here some time ago. Haven't been on a forum since I wuz booted from here. A lot has happened since then. And so some attitudes have changed, BUT I am still a conservative. I have looked on here but I just can't seem to find the fire I had back then.
Solar, went to Cali. for a little more than a week. Wore out that rental car. Stayed at Huntington Beach. Did the tourist thing in LA and surrounding areas. You can keep that dang tar pit and what we call a farmers market over here is not what you folks call a farmers market. Fru fru restaurants inside what was supposed to be a vegetable stand....what tha hay?!
Also went to Yosemite to see, what is to foresters the holy grail, the redwoods. Man-o-man are they something else. Got a lot a pics prior to the fire. Outstanding place.
You folks are a doctor jeckle  mr hyde when it comes to driving. Nice as can be outside the car but once behind the wheel y'all turn into something else......jeeze. In the town of Huntington I was driving the speed limit or just slightly less because I didn't know the area and I got flipped off because I was in the way.....you folks are just plain nutz.
Just glad there was no earthquakes or meteors and I got out of Ca. alive.
Since then when dealing with health issues I was asked if I had been out of the country in the past 12 months I replied.....only California. LOL!
I have decided that we are on the downhill slide of what was a great country because of a lack of leadership on the local, state and federal level and there is not much I can do but enjoy the show as we decline and head off into the abyss.
However, when the libs hit the bottom of the abyss and ask for help. I'll ask them if they know mandarin or russian because the english speaking people(conservatives) cannot understand liberal language any longer.
Grins Y'all

Hence in the most recent election I went for the people that had the best chance of dethroning this ridiculous liberal regime that has been running this country straight down the sh!tter for the last six and ½ years. Of course that would have been the Republican party. Anything to get rid of Ebola Obama.

I align myself with and vote for the Conservative party in my state, which since I just recently started getting into politics i found that New York is very anti-conservative. It's hard holding the views i have around my friends and co workers so i usually just keep my opinions to myself.

It's great to be here among like minded and intelligent individuals such as yourselves. I was wondering though, how can I get involved politically in real life with the Conservative party in my state? Any suggestions/ideas?

I suppose I'm the new kid on the block.  Not really!

I'm no kid at all.  I am a 68 yr. old woman who moved to north Texas three years ago.

Prior to that I spent nine years on the road with my husband in our motorhome traveling all the States and Canada.

Prior to that we spent years living in the far East and Middle East and traveling the world.  My husband and I raised three kids .... mostly in Indonesia but also Saudi Arabia.  We home schooled our kids for many years..... and they are now grown and gone.

Almost three months ago I fell down the stairs in my home and broke fourteen bones and suffered a concussion and collapsed lung.  Recovery has been long and slow and I spend a lot of time on my computer...... which brought me to you fine people.

It is nice to be among fellow conservatives and activists.  Oh yeah..... I am a member of the Cruz Crew!

Welcome Kroz, and sorry about the concussion. I had one nearly 20 years ago which led me to posting in political forums too. Before that I was in mining and geology sites, but once memory loss set in, I moved to political forums.
A full year to recovery and still doing politics. Addictive, isn't it? :biggrin:

Thank you all for your warm words of welcome.  It is a pleasure to be here.

Yes, politics is additive!  I have been involved since registering American ex-patriots living abroad to vote in the elections.  I was trying to light fires under voters long before the Tea Party existed.  But when the Tea Party was first being organized in 2009 I signed on as a card caring member during the embryonic stage!

And Wakstall, thanks for the heads up. I will keep my eye peeled for the BOO guy!  :laugh:

Ok, I now take over the Office of Newest Guy with all the duties and responsibilities that entails and which I can shirk.

I am now 72 years old and have been a Conservative activist since I was 17 (yes, I did say 17). I both worked as a volunteer for and voted for (first Presidential vote) Barry Goldwater.

Over the years I have watched my beloved country decline more and more into the cultural muck which is then reflected in its politics (the former informs and inspires the latter).

Currently I am active as a PCO in my county Republican Party and as treasurer for my local Tea Party. Though pessimistic about our country's future I still try to fight the good fight. Most of all, though, I rely on Heavenly Father to ultimately protect and guide us; but I fear that will not fully occur until after, just as with Israel, we experience a severe and well deserved chastisement resulting from our immorality, particularly the abominable practice of abortion.

Beyond that I am a bibliophile and much enjoy sharing news stories of import with other concerned individuals. Hopefully, I will be able to contribute something of value to these discussions and also to make some new friends.

LOL! I missed this post.
What has your heritage to do with anything, and what's a fnchtard? A mentally challenged Finch?
By the way, according to my grand mother, I'm a JOOOO as well.

Look, here's the thing, your first post was that of a racist troll, what most refer to as baiting, that usually gets you banned immediately, but I didn't boot you, I'd hoped if I pushed you hard enough you'd concede and admit you came off bigoted and move on, never to pull that shit again.
I don't know what you're used to, but this is an actual Conservative forum, where bigots and racists have absolutely no place in the movement.
Conservatism is not about race, skin color or sex, it's about values.

So I'll leave it up to you to decide if you stay, assuming you can grow up and act like an adult.
By the way, Taxed and I own this forum, we decide who stays and who does not.
I'm being kind, take advantage of it.

Post by: The Purple Finger on September 23, 2015, 07:25:24 PM
Fellow conservatives. I just registered and want to say hello. This looks like a great place to call home. Just some quick background. I have been a conservative since kicking that dough eyed putz Jimmy Carter out when I voted for Ronaldus Magnimus Reagan.

In my profession I have been involved with the media (whom the universe is not big enough to contain my hate for) and have worked with a number of conservative pundits, celebs and such. I proudly served a support role in Iraq and was involved in the voting process there. This hopefully explains my username explaining the voter ink.

I post a bit on the cutting edge at times using humor + vinegar. 90% of it is to mock the left wing media machine's style, holding a mirror up for any leftists to see what we must suffer through every day of our lives.

In my profession one of the things I do is photoshopping and occasionally post humorous pics. Please let me know if you want anything to use as ammo elsewhere, or if you feel anything is too much. I don't post porn, disgusting pics, or use profanity in my pics or posts. I've been on forums since 1993 and even further back on UseNet, so I'm reasonably behaved.

BTW, I'm out fighting the good fight on the Disqus format as The Purple Finger as well. Mostly now on the TheHill. If my sarcasm, my posting style ever gets too over the top, please just PM me and will yield to anyone who asks.

Thanks for tolerating the long introduction and apologies to all I'll probably offend hense forward.  :thumbsup: The Clot Blimp below gets more engulfed and pointed more vertical as her weekly scandals come out and she nose dives so keep an eye for that periodically.

Thanks Hero for moving the thread to where it belongs. I honestly missed the Welcome Thread area in my excitement to join.

Today on TheHill and on a couple of Gruber Gerbil sites, in full sarcasm I posted this about the pope, and had to beat the rage back with stick.

I find it very refreshing that this administration is willing to add religion to everything we do. The Pope should be involved in our everyday lives, every moment, as should God and Christ. More God, Christ, prayer and less government.

With all the coverage on the Pope, the welcome fit only for the highest of kings and God, a renewed focus on religion can be taught to our kids in school with prayers every day numerous times a day. Teaching the entire Christian bible and graded on their knowledge along with Roman Catholic tests on why the climate changing is bad.

This should prepare the young and the millennials for the mandatory contribution they will face in order to fix the climate from changing. I'm hearing that millennials and generation z workers should be taxed have their wages withheld at 50% ~ 70% of everything they make, so they'll be working day and night non stop as our brave new worker drones used to fix the climate from changing.

It's the very least they can do to pay the hundreds of trillions this new alliance of Rome, God, Christ, and US government will require to stop the climate from changing.

Not really sure how I found it. Was searching with "conservative" in the name and Democrat's brain (Google) coughed it up.

BTW, I live in CA. Work in very technical field in the San Jose area and I'm surrounded MoonBatShttery. I have ammo and hate for decades.  Mr. Taxed, my property taxes are 18 THOUSAND a year.  :cursing:

Good God, why are you in Ca yet.

Good God, why are you in Ca yet.

My career. My son and his friends. My wife. Ahhhh the wife. You guys think you're conservative!? She's a lead lined concrete rock. Plus I love Tahoe and the ocean and surf too, so I'm stuck for a while.

My son (9) and I also do testing and work up on Davis & Mather airfield. He actually salutes the flag when he sees it and has been FULLy taught about Democrats, Repubs, RINOS, Obama... the works. Nine! And he could post on any forum and attack these pedocrats... Ooops that was out loud. Sorry.

I take him to the bases and the guys love him. Here he is in an A-10. He was SPITTING mad when he heard Obama (yes I told him that) is cutting the warthogs. It's the A10A -

There HAS TO BE a stronger word than hate. I'm getting my revenge. My son can spot Democrats from a mile away. He's just nine and knows that Democrats will be taxing his yard cutting business and everything else.

If you have kids teach them early and often. Do to their brains what the left does. Fill it with information on what's "bad" and what's "good".

Trip over the sidewalk and skin your knees? Democrats fault for not fixing it despite taking tax money to do so.
Fires raging in CA? Democrat's (Sierra Club) fault for not allowing more removal of dead trees.
Dad can't afford the latest iPad? Democrat's took all my money for taxes.
Gray haired 58 yr old miserable 3rd grade teacher (who goes home to her "partner") giving you bad grades? Crat!
School lunches suck worse than eating dirt? Michelle Obama - Democrat.
Friends house broken into? Democrat funded illegal aliens.
Videos of people having their heads sawn off? Democrats who stand w/ Iran and Islam.
Dad can't afford the latest XBox? Global warming and taxes on electricity bills.
Global Warming? Every winter it snows, ANYWHERE... every hurricane season under normal... Democrat scam.
Kids tease you at school? Future Democrats.
Bad hair day? Organic Democrats selling useless hair gel.
The Devil? Democrat.

See how this works? The folks at PBS do. The folks at Sesame Street did. Teach them. Program them. Prepare them.

Part of the reason I am settling down has to do with the times a changing. I was lucky to get into the blimp business when I did, at the end of it's heyday, but sadly the quality of new blood coming in is not up to what I believe is needed to remain safe or sane. Add that to the new owners ultra corporate philosophy and it is evolving into a very rigid and unforgiving lifestyle with little personal reward. I am glad for my time there, but fate and circumstance has put me in one spot for now. Not a bad thing, but I do miss traveling and if the fates allow, I will travel again.  Thanks for the welcomes back!

I have some empathy for your adjustment.  I traveled constantly for nine years in my motorhome but settled down three years ago.  It takes a while to get used to your stationary legs.  Waking up every day in the same place seems strange.  I was concerned that I would get restless, but that hasn't happened.  Staying busy helps!   :wink:

I settled down nearly 30 years ago, and the one thing I hate the most, is accumulative shit that piles up over the years.
I used to pride myself in the fact that I could toss everything I owned, into a box and walk away.
Now it would take a year of planning and yard sales just to prep for the move, that would take 6 semi trucks to deal with the rest.
Yeah, I miss the simple life, but love my huge tools, so I'm stuck ya might say..

I was on the road for forty-three years. Marriott gave me "lifetime platinum" status which meant I spent over five years in Marriott hotels. Was platinum on Delta. I now take pride that I have not been on an airplane finover three years. The adjustment came easier than I thought. I still would not give up those times as it provided me a very gratifying career.I think it was a bigger adjustment for my wife having to get used to me being home all the time.

One of our agreements was that the kitchen belonged to Toy.
So over the years, as I search for a utensil I used the day before, or condiments that are usually found in the most obvious of places, yet aren't, I simply say, "Hon, I'm hungry" and food magically appears.
She's a good and efficient cook, but she's constantly rearranging the kitchen.

I'm not compaining in the least, she can move anything she wants as long as she feeds me. :wub:

Now that was an interesting post, walks!

I do not put milk in my scrambled eggs because I do not like them soft and squishy!   :biggrin:

But I frequently put a lid on the skillet and that causes the eggs to puff up.  They are airy, not spongy.  They are like an omelet without the added ingredients.  We like these puffy eggs in a crispy bacon and egg sandwich in the evenings. Yum!

I love a good breakfast. Eggs over medium, hash browns and country ham is my favorite. Waffle does a great job with that.

As far dinner and supper. I remember my grandmother fixing a big dinner and then leftovers were left on the dining room table until supper and that was our supper. How did we ever survive? BTW, anything fried was done in lard. Of course bacon grease was poured into a container and kept for future use.

Hey Y'all

It was suggested I post this here... so here goes.

I'm a small government, fiscally conservative, constitutionalist that believes that the Federal Government exists as a compact of states rather than as an individual omnipotent entity.  I believe power flows up, not down. 

I also believe that most things the Federal Government does is outside their charter.  I believe that they have tortured the interstate commerce clause to include jurisdiction over things that it was never designed to address. 

I think hate speech laws and hate crime laws are attempts to impose thought control on people.  Neither types are valid laws.   I think liberals have an active agenda aimed at social engineering us into their likeness. 

So... there it is in a nutshell.  Thanks for having me.

Just signed up today and it's great to be here.  I'm from the great state of Texas and have supported Ted Cruz since his days as solicitor general.  I watched him take on the establishment' choice for Senate.  He came back from 60 points down to win in a landslide an carried the Latino votes in a large majority.  He's going to do the same exact thing in the election.

I'm honored to be here and thanks for making this a place I can call home.

I use as reliable and verifiable sources as possible when doing a write-up. Sources I site frequently are:

Post by: Hoofer on February 19, 2016, 09:17:07 PM
Allow me to introduce myself, and waste your time... yeah, I am kinda new, at least time-wise.

I like to make wifey & the kids smile, so after 35 years of cracking jokes, as a warning to the sensitive types - don't tell me what bugs you.
We live on a small farmette, I am the Farmer's husband... I like ducks, and can watch my favorite ducks in the front pond I dug especially for them. 
If visiting us is on your mind, our Dobermans have been clocked <5 seconds from the front door to the driveway fence, 400' away.
They have outrun full grown deer, in one case circled a fleeing buck.  If you try to hide, we also have a trained search & rescue bloodhound on duty, he'll find you alive... or dead.  The other dog I won't mention, he's on my "list" and hides under th bed during thunderstorms.

And as a really gruesome warning, we have a sign posted,
WARNING MONKEYS!  Their bite is quite painful and highly infectious!
Think about it ... they do.

I am what some would call, a Fundamentalist, Bible Thumping, KJV1611, something-or-other, follower of Jesus Christ.
Yep, one of those guys, just watch out, I ain't perfected yet, and I'm still a pretty good shot with a 25-06.
I enjoy the life I have been given, including the years since when I should have been dead, which is several times.

Some of my forefathers were here a long time, before it was a nation - but, that doesn't bother me as much as the BLM (Bureau of Land Management), I don't tan very well, I get RED.  My other forefathers were white, so I occasionally tan orange, and I like cold weather.

Politically speaking, I love America, it's foundation and thank God for being born & raised here.
I love Freedom, Liberty, Privacy, and would not give up any for the promise of "security".

A Political Conservative, IMO, loves a minimalist government, strong borders & military to keep us safe, but would never turn those forces against the people they have pledged to serve and protect.

A Constitutional Conservative, IMO, looks to the Bill of Rights as the Federal governmental restrictions and limitations, with all the other crazy ideas being left to the States to decide.  And, they own no property that resides outside of Washington DC which has no military purpose.

A Fiscal Conservative, IMO, doesn't try to manipulate or stabilize monetary policy, because it's already backed by Gold and Silver (if necessary).  They also are government minimalists, not looking for the next opportunity to spend money, but how to spend the least amount of the Taxpayer's dollars wisely - and keep what's not needed working in a free market economy.

A Social Conservative, IMO, doesn't look to the government to set moral standards, but encourages and stays out of Churches, so they can freely care for the sick, preach the good news, and be the moral support system for a troubled world.  This person also believes as a last resort, when the people cannot defend themselves, police - the arm of the state, has the right & responsibility to serve and protect American citizens from those who would attempt to take away our lives, our liberty and pursuit of happiness.

A Religious Conservative has a 5lb KJV Bible with an embossed cover, which will leave a clear mark should you be slapped with it.
This person reads, studies and thinks about the Bible, though far from perfect, they struggle as much as anyone else in the desire to please God.  This person isn't out to resolve perceived social injustices, but will attempt to win over others to their point of view - which is centered on Jesus Christ, and called the great commission.  All judgment is left to Jesus Christ, but in this time, He is most Merciful.

Most of that fits nicely with a TEA party Conservative, eh?  Well, I guess that would be -ME-

Most of my free time is spent "tinkering" with HAM radio, Alternative Energy, and amusing my wife and kids. 
We haven't had a TV since 1988, but, still hear enough about it through co-workers to know it's still a waste of time.
We've probably had every local library book in the house at one time - we all read.

A couple of my kids have been politically involved in campaigns, but I'm not allowed to say it's TED CRUZ ... to anyone, I can neither confirm nor deny, and it's a need-to-know basisI can say, the political picture for America is a bright future, there are MANY of these kids involved, for quite some time, and we need to recognize them and encourage them.

Since I work for "The Internet" as a job, surfing it... is boring, so I don't.  Looking at my bookmarks, it's pretty sparse, less than a dozen, 5 in particular:

Weasel Zippers,
Drudge Report, (both for the headlines),
Conservative Review (Mark Levin),
Conservative Political Forum
and a Youtube channel, The Great War - which is an interesting historical study.

Why do I post here, and not really... nowhere else?

For 11 years, I ran one of the largest Multi-line Bulletin Boards in the country.
It is EXPENSIVE, and hardware was replaced continually, modems, drives, etc.
We didn't have popup ads back then, or ask for money - it came from my pocket.
We wrote our own software from the modem handling routines to the database search engines - all self-taught because what we did, didn't exist.
I also tried to police the system, and enlisted the help of a few trusted folks to help out, it was too much, coding, writing, moderating.
The system expanded over a handful of states, with all linked back to the main server, yeah it was fun, but work and expensive.

I can really, really appreciate the guys that keep order here, the sacrifices they are making, the commitment of time & energy, it takes to keep a system like this up and running, and moderate the flow of discussions.  Been there, done that.
So when I see some complete IDIOT stand up and proclaim the forum is BIASED, I too want to reach through the monitor and slap the fool who has invested nothing and expects everything, without the least bit of respect for the gentlemen managing the forums.
It's just so simple, to just leave if you don't like it, the cost to you is ZERO. 
If you do decide to leave, let me remind you, someday, you may want to come back - don't burn your bridge, leave quietly...

The last thing, still the biggest problem with this medium as it was back in the 1980's & 90s, communicating emotions and strength of our desire or lack of, is almost impossible for 99% of the users.  Stuff like sarcasm gets taken out of context easily... grow up, the words posted here are all covered under the First Amendment - so don't let it go to your head and act like a complete jerk, 'cause you don't own it.

If you haven't noticed yet, I write what's on my heart at the moment - sometimes serious, maybe funny, but always "average" as my daughter says, according the the databases she pours over, I am very "average"... sigh!  At least she's got a excellent mother!

Hi There,
Just wanted to introduce myself and thank you for the opportunity to join your community.
A little about me: 
Happily married, former homeschooling mother of three (2 living, 1 in Heaven), grandmother (NaNa) of 2, pro-life, constitutional conservative who loves all things Star Trek, Dr. Who, and Florida State football (Go 'Noles!).
A long time ago I was an Admin on the FreeConservatives board and then posted shortly on the LibertyDwells board.  I think I may recognize a couple of fellow freecers and dwellers who post here now.  Hope I'll still be welcome, lol.
I have been away from forums for a while now, but lacking an avenue to have political discussion, I found myself once again looking for a place to talk politics, get information, and be around like-minded folks.
Looking forward to some great conversations!
See y'all on the threads,

Hi there. Not sure where I should post this other than here.

Hi there. I am a Bernie supporter and a sophomore in college. I made a bet last week with one of the few Trump supporters in school. The terms:

1) If Bernie won Nevada and Trump won SC, it was a push. Same if both lost.

2) But if one won while the other lost, well...

I lost, obviously.

THE WAGER:

Starting at 9AM tomorrow EST, I will now work for my friend for the next 72 hours. I will be his butler/assistant/servant/etc. until Thursday morning.

We also agreed that the loser would go onto different message boards and the like for suggestions for thing I'll have to do for the next 72 hours. I already know that I'm to have coffee and a breakfast sandwich in hand, and I can expect to do a lot of laundry, scrubbing his bathroom, burn the Bernie sign I have on my door outside somewhere and things like that.

We also agreed that I'd ask for suggestions from places like this. I'm not going to just do chores. He's going to use the next few days to also expose me to "proper" thinking. I have to write a two-page book report on The Art of the Deal. But I know I'm going to have a few more things to read and listen to, also.

So fire away for anything else.

Hey there BernieSupporter, or how about BS for short. :biggrin:
Anyway, welcome to the forum, hope you stick around. And FWIW, if you really like Bernie, you should see little difference in Trump, they're cut from the same socialistic cloth.

A long time ago I was an Admin on the FreeConservatives board and then posted shortly on the LibertyDwells board.  I think I may recognize a couple of fellow freecers and dwellers who post here now.  Hope I'll still be welcome, lol.
I have been away from forums for a while now, but lacking an avenue to have political discussion, I found myself once again looking for a place to talk politics, get information, and be around like-minded folks.
Looking forward to some great conversations!
See y'all on the threads,
Ziggy

Howdy.

Hi there. Not sure where I should post this other than here.

Hi there. I am a Bernie supporter and a sophomore in college. I made a bet last week with one of the few Trump supporters in school. The terms:

1) If Bernie won Nevada and Trump won SC, it was a push. Same if both lost.

2) But if one won while the other lost, well...

I lost, obviously.

THE WAGER:

Starting at 9AM tomorrow EST, I will now work for my friend for the next 72 hours. I will be his butler/assistant/servant/etc. until Thursday morning.

We also agreed that the loser would go onto different message boards and the like for suggestions for thing I'll have to do for the next 72 hours. I already know that I'm to have coffee and a breakfast sandwich in hand, and I can expect to do a lot of laundry, scrubbing his bathroom, burn the Bernie sign I have on my door outside somewhere and things like that.

We also agreed that I'd ask for suggestions from places like this. I'm not going to just do chores. He's going to use the next few days to also expose me to "proper" thinking. I have to write a two-page book report on The Art of the Deal. But I know I'm going to have a few more things to read and listen to, also.

So fire away for anything else.

I would suggest you take time to read up on what socialism really is. Hopefully you will determine it is a loser in the long term.

Hi, y'all.  I found your board and I've been reading it the last few days, it felt right like home, so I thought I would just jump in. 

I'm a female, age 58, living in Louisiana, but born and raised in Texas.  I'll always be a Texan! I've been posting on a popular "conservative" board for many, many years and I'm hating it that I now have to put the conservative in quotes. It's turned into a batwing crazy Donald Trump fan board. In the last months I've felt like I was posting on Democrat Underground.  I give the facts with links and the response is vile insults because they won't address anything that is truth.

Anyway, I love talking politics and just about anything with fellow conservatives.  I hope I can make some new friends that feel like old friends here  :smile:

I really welcome opposing views and enjoy a good respectful debate.  What I don't like is giving a reasoned view with links to support my facts and having a reply that consists of telling me I'm a stupid cow. Go Trump!  LOL. 

Don't get me wrong, some posts deserve a derisive response, and I can appreciate a humorous zing even when it's directed at me, but stupid cow is just  lame.

Hello, I'm Melissa.
I just thought I would sign up and share something that i think is very important, since it does tend to target and defame Conservatives. A friend directed me to a petition which I think would be very helpful in stopping, at temporialy the conditioning of people in colleges through extreme leftists professors. It is to suspend social "justice" courses because it is has gotten out of control and people have turned it into the opposite of what they say they're doing. This is not censorship on freedom of speech, social justice warriors online appoint themselves as some sort of 'opinion police' so i think they need to take a seat and assess for a moment. It would do some good. Stop the Marxist from teaching extremism radcial ideology to youths.
So check it out for yourselves and if you agree, sign it and share it around.

You'll find we are the epitome of Conservatism, in that we are in no way Republicans, in fact, we disdain the RNC and what the party has become.
The majority on this forum believe in our Founders ideals and the Bill of Rights, everything else is a leftist distraction and a way for the GOP to capitulate to the left, while claiming to protect our liberties.

For the most part this forum backed Ted Cruz, the constitutionalist, and in no way supported Trump because the GOP only supported Trump to kill of Cruz, though we do now because, in the end, he is our President.
We have hope that he'll mostly be Conservative but won't hold our breath on that considering much of what he campaigned on contradicted itself nearly daily.
But we're also glad that a Marxist didn't win, aside from the fact most of us refused to support someone that campaigned to the left for the lib vote and openly stated he didn't need the Conservative vote to win.

Most of us believe the "it was Russians" line is nothing more than an effort at distraction by a party who ran a terrible candidate that had no message other than four more years of Obama policies. That being said, we also recognize Putin for the thug that he is.

Many love an enemy they can see, and an old Commie is a perfect scapegoat for many to focus on.
Personally, I think Putin has done a fine job for the Russian people, geopolitically speaking, is another subject altogether, especially when considering his main opponent is an arrogant, ignorant, ideological child Muscum Marxist that had no business interfering in the Middle East whatsoever.
Expect things to change dramatically now that Obozo is about to be kicked to the curb.

I have to say, I'm excited that my country and yours might be able (maybe?) to have official ties finally, it's been very sad 8 years. I truly hope we can one day become allies. 
One thing Americans do not understand that if Russians had a different leader, who is more European Union-friendly, Russia would suffer a lot more from Islamic terrorist attacks than she does now. Also, Putin only accepted a small few Syrian refugees, all of them Christian only. But that's another conversation.

Agree! That's the thing, Putin does what's best for his people and their nation, while our elected officials do what's best for them and the monied interests that put them in office.
Granted the Conservatives in the GOP are night and day from the rest of the party, those, the leftist GOP (RINO) holding power in the party give the left everything they ask for, never once considering the future of our nation.

No, the party split long ago over Goldwater in the early 1960's when the leftists in the party helped kill off his political career with the help of LBJ on the dim side.
It literally comes down to people on the Right that believe in our Founding ideals, VS leftists that care nothing for the nation, and it's those leftist GOP that made deals with the leftist Dim party that created the mess we're in today.

I have long believed Russia and the USA has many common reasons to be allies and being non adversarial would be of benefit to both. You have not shared your age so we do not know your point of reference. I visited St.Petersburg in 2002 just when Russia was trying embrace capitalism. What struck me is most people over 40 seemed lost. They did not seem to know what to do with their new freedoms and the responsibility of being free. Whereas, those younger seemed really excited about their newly found freedoms.

As for Putin, he has been tough on radical Muslims which he should be. However, I see him as a narcicisist who desires to put the old Soviet Union back together. This would not be good for Russia or the West. I can assure you the West only wants peace and has no intentions of trying to defeat a Russia that also coexists in peace.

As for Putin, he has been tough on radical Muslims which he should be. However, I see him as a narcicisist who desires to put the old Soviet Union back together. This would not be good for Russia or the West. I can assure you the West only wants peace and has no intentions of trying to defeat a Russia that also coexists in peace.

Hello.
I'll be 41 in a few days.
Yes, in cities, there was total chaos for a long time but my family is vast and we are mostly rural, in small towns and tiny settlements all over former Soviet Union, life didn't change much after Soviet Union fell whether you were 13 or 53.

Americans have trouble with slang. Blacks for example originate many of our phrases and once whites are heard adopting them, the blacks invent something new. The exact same thing applies between generations of all colors. What also applies is that the "truths" these code phrases are meant to hide are never new, never original, and never solved.

I met a guy in his late 30s that asked if I'd ever heard of Steely Dan, Journey, Doobie Brothers.
I said, of course, they were huge in the 70s, he was so excited that he met someone that actually remembered music from the 70s.
My look to the kid that just made me feel like a dusty old history book, was. :glare:

For most of us, the 70s were just yesterday, the end of Nam, the rise of Carter that ushered in Reagan a precursor to the Conservative movement coming back.
Sad thing is, for many young voters today, 911 is only found in history books.

I was raised around polka and swing. Polka as in the old country German polka from the 18th and 19th century, though I never thought much of it at the time, thought it really hokey, I often wonder what people think when they hear it playing in my truck today. :biggrin:

If you're a purist the Alan Lomax recordings of true roots music are now available, or any number of "side genres," but yes, the present country scene DOES have its rock-and-roller influences...and always have. Jerry Lee Lewis, anyone?

Willie Nelson wrote "Crazy." Who hasn't heard of him? You don't hear him doing Waylon Sr. ripoffs, do you?

TRUE country is HEARTFELT country. The instruments and arrangements and audio tricks mean nothing without it. American music, plain and clear --- the songs of who we are.

I hear black juke joints in there. And hillbilly shitkickers missing teeth. And also in there are performers at the top of their game. What's changed? What's truly changed?

Good music crosses genres. Country accepted its outlaws onto that sacred Opryland stage. Its old road dogs went to porches or under the sod and the folk music of America blended genres, as we always have. Country is folk, folk is country. It's our music. Ours.

In my area now the new stores are making bigger parking areas for long bed pu trucks. As it's all farm land around them.  This is making the older stores do the same and reline there parking lots for the long beds trucks.  But most places don't have the room, so there being left out in the cool.

Hi everybody, I am Béal Feirste and I hope none of you mind too much if an Irishman such as myself decides to look around.  To be honest I don't know much of conservatism in the United States, and American politics is a bit odd to us Europeans to begin. But I imagine there is more to it than what I see about President Trump on the news.
I am a 24 year old male from the lovely city of Belfast who has been to the United States three times mainly to the east and west coasts with the exception of a short trip to Texas. I'm catholic but not terribly religious and am strongly in favour of a free speech, free religion, and an open market with few barriers and unified regulations (that would make me a liberal here, but I'm not sure what I'd be in the States). Feel free to ask me anything and feel free to tell me off if I accidentally say anything offensive (not my intention).

Welcome Beal. Here is a perfect video to get you started on understanding American politics.
Though a bit old, the video explains how our nation was designed to function.

You're not alone. It was ably said long ago that there are two things in life that one must never see: the making of sausage, or the making of laws in the U.S. Congress.

For background, follow Trump's criticism of the media which led to all-out war against his campaign, and media hysteria once he defied them and won, anyway.

I am a former newspaper reporter who did not vote for Trump. He's right about the media.

Welcome. Please stick around awhile and you will begin to see what true conservatives really.

First, as far as most of us are concerned Trump is not a true conservative and was not true conservatives first choice. He is more of a populist. However, he has appointed some folks who are conservative. Based on what you shared as to your beliefs you are on the way to being a conservative. Please feel free to ask questions as I am pretty sure where you get your news it is leftist leaning.

Oh my, I've seen the making of a sausage :unsure:

But when I say I find American politics odd...consider something like healthcare: everybody here supports the NHS; liberals, socialists, and conservatives alike (though all have different ideas on how to improve it) but in the States public health care is an exclusively liberal/socialist position I think. Also liberal and socialist seem to mean the same thing and I cannot emphasize how WEIRD that is to me.

In our political lexicon socialist and liberal are the same. People are now figuring them out and they are trying to relabel themselves as progressive.

Conservatives do not like public health care because it removes the individual from making their own decisions concerning health care.

Everything the government touches, it destroys.  Look at the California infrastructure right now.  Look at the VA. We don't want a crappy health system like the NHS or some other third world system.

It's just weird because liberals here are very different from socialists. Liberals support free trade, free market, and individualism. Socialists tend to favor greater state intervention into unprofitable industries, confusing regulation and a nationalization of the means of production. Conservatives are really big on barriers to free trade, security, and strong borders. Each label is different from the other.

Conservatives here believe this also. I will expand that we believe trade deals should be equal for both parties.

Interesting. Here is literally split left and right, with socialist Marxists/communist on the left, and Liberty/Freedom loving free mkt capitalists on the right.
The left have so divided everyone, that they destroyed the middle as well as killed off their own party.

I believe there is a confusion about the naming of different political concepts made in the public intentionally in order to mislead the people. Meaning of the words are being intentionally turned upside down. What we call "liberal" in Europe still usually means "classical liberal", while in America "classical liberals" are now being called "libertarians", which term is not in use in Europe, and that is because the modern Americans who call themselves "liberals" are actually the very opposite of being liberal, they are authoritarian socialists. People are being mislead that "conservative" and "liberal" are opposite to each other, which is not true. Here is a short explanation of some opposite political ideas.

Authoritarian vs. Liberal
Conservative vs. Progressive
Nationalist vs. Internationalist

So, for example, American conservatives (Republicans) are also liberal nationalists. :smile: They are conservative because they want to preserve the Constitution, and that Constitution is liberal, in meaning that it protects individual liberty, and they are also nationalists because they love their nation the best and are not being much interested in the rest of the world. Their opposite side (Democrats) are therefore progressive authoritarian internationalists. They are progressive because they want to change the Constitutional values to something they believe is better, they are authoritarian because they want more state intervention over the life of an individual, and they are internationalists because they are, well, Marxist. :smile: But I am aware that the term "nationalist" has a negative meaning in America, don't know why. If they love their nation, then they are nationalists, at least from the European perspective, where nationalist usually equals patriotic.

Castro and Mussolini were Nationalists, so relative to recent times, the term takes on a militaristic meaning, one carrying the connotation of a coup.

Oh, thank you for this explanation. I was struggling to understand why for example calling Vladimir Putin a nationalist would have had a negative meaning. In Europe, only communists and "progressives/liberals" are against nationalism, and if you came to Europe and talked against nationalism, everyone would have assumed you were a commie or a "progressive/liberal". Because communists and "progressives/liberals" are globalists, they believe in international communist revolution and a global government which should control the world, while on the other side nationalists are anti-communists and anti-globalists, they believe in preservation of traditional and conservative values.

It's funny in a way, but the only reason libs here are different from libs in Europe, is their need to usurp new monikers to confuse the masses.
Conservatives have always known who we are, but liberals have changed their name on a regular basis, latest being Progressives until its history was exposed as Marxists. What they use next is anyone's guess.

From an American's POV, we've watched nation's collapsed by communists/socialists via a claim for Democracy by dividing the nation and driving it into anarchy, (part of the plan) then the Commies come back in under another moniker, claim this group or that group as the enemy eg. Hitler and the Jews, then rally the nation under the nationalist banner and once in control plunge it into a dictatorship.

It's one thing to have nationalist pride, it's another to be a Nationalist. Just look at some Nationalist sites, you'll the hand of anarchists driving them into division, into extremist groups, this is just one of the steps in divide and conquer.
America is unique, in that we are a mixed bag of cultures under the banner of shared values of liberty and Freedom, and in order to destroy this harmony, one needs to pit one group against another and racism is an excellent place to start, as evidenced by Black Lives matter, convince people they are the victims, while white people experience hate, further driving them together as a group and the division continues.

Yes, we know where Nationalism leads, even though by itself it's a great thing overall, assuming all races and cultures share its true meaning as a homogeneous society.

I don't know, I think it was the leftist mass media that has given nationalism a bad name, they tend to label all kinds of extremists as nationalists. Because, Marxists believe that different nations are dividing the humanity as a whole and causing wars, and so the Marxist agenda is to kill all nations and establish one world with one government through an international revolution which would bring the eternal peace. (So basically they are the avant-garde to Anti-Christ.) On the other side, a true nationalist believes in a diverse world consisted of different and unique nations. One problem with nationalism is that it can easily become chauvinism and turn against the other nations.

I believe that nationalism is more of a solution than a problem. Being a patriot is a passive state, in which one is just a loyal citizen to his country, and the opposite of a patriot would be a traitor. But, for example, what if a Christian country decides to welcome the flood of Muslim migrants? What is a patriot then to do? Just to remain loyal? No, that would be suicidal, and Europe is currently full of patriots who are killing their own nations, believing that accepting poor Muslim refugees is a patriotic thing to do, and that their nationalists are traitors. On the other side, being a nationalist means to actively work on the national idea. Nationalist emotion brings more new energy and will to fight and sacrifice for the nation.

For example, if Jews were just patriots but not nationalists, they would have remained loyal citizens to their respective countries, but they would have never had enough energy and will for such an enterprise to move to Israel and establish a national state there. Look at Rabbi Meir Kahane, in the leftist mass media he has been labeled as "Jewish Nazi" or "Jewish ultranationalist". But, what he was fighting for was just the common sense. He was stating that Israel is a Jewish national state, which it is, and that if they allow Arabs to become equal citizens, having in mind the higher Arab birth rate, it would destroy Israel as a Jewish national state and made it just another Arab state. Isn't that just the truth? Whether Israel should exist as a state or not is another question, but it was successfully established and preserved in the most possible hostile environment only due to nationalist efforts.

Then, there is the French National Front, the major European nationalist political party, that has also been labeled in the leftist mass media as "Nazi" and "racist", because they believe that France should be the French national state, and that French people can only be white, but not Arab or black. I don't know, is it not just the truth, that France is, and should remain, the French national state, and that the French people are only white? To me, their politics are just the common sense. If France doesn't remain white, if it becomes predominantly Arab or black, it will no longer be France anymore. Of course, most nations are not completely racially pure, and they can't be, except if they live on isolated islands, like Japan or Iceland, but there must be some limit which preserves the original identity.

I am aware that the United States were founded as a country of immigrants, but these immigrants were originally white Christians and Jews, and the American Constitution was written for white Christians and Jews, that is just the truth. And you can see that the black and Mexican Americans are generally having difficulties to understand and accept the original American values. So, their respective nationalisms could create even more issues and divide the country, but also American nationalism could provide the solution. (I don't mean the final solution, ha ha.) For example, to actively teach them better the original American values, why are they good and worthy of fighting and sacrificing for. I don't know for the Black Lives Matter, or the feminists, or any other kind of leftist mob, do they want to be Americans or not, and if they do want, then why don't they embrace the American values? It is a simple question for them to decide. The problem is they are used to live in a good surrounding, and they don't know what is like to live in another kind of society. Maybe you should send them to live in Somalia under anarchy, or in Saudi Arabia under the Sharia law for a while.

This guy for example is making a great point.

I am a Vietnam Veteran, instrument rated private pilot, 71 years old and play golf and bowl, and am very active.

Glad to have found this forum.

Welcome to the forum VV. :thumbup:

Just so you know, this thread should have been originally posted in:
http://conservativepoliticalforum.com/the-living-room/welcome-thread-for-newbie/

So it will be moved tomorrow.

One other point, we have a religion forum as well, and keep politics separate from religion.

Hello all...   If I've learned one thing, over and over from this forum, the foundation of everything we hold true and dear is wrapped up in the Constitution.   The labels, Conservative, TEA, RINO, Libertarian are just without substance if the ideas these groups profess can't be clearly traced back to the Constitution/Bill of Rights.

The Marxists / Liberals / Socialists are playing the long game, which gathered a lot of steam under Obama, and might take decades to roll back with this lack-luster Senate/Congress.   For me personally, this has been a good place to echo some thoughts, hear/read great discourse, and develop compelling arguments to present the Constitutional Conservative position elsewhere.  I hope you can intellectually profit as I have, in such a short time.  Welcome.
