2 terms describing political ideology and 2 terms for political parties. They aren't really interchangeable but people do it anyway. But what gets me is if someone is saying something derogatory about liberals/democrats they'll say liberal - "go fug a tree you damn liberal". But if it's about conservatives/republicans they'll say republican - "Go have butt sex in a dirty bathroom you damn republican".

Why?

Logic is flawed, if not all conservatives are republican then there's no way all liberals are dumbass dems, lots Green party and other pointless political parties out there run by libs. But then again that doesnt serve your dem bashing....so therefore facts must be skewed to meet your demands.

But what gets me is if someone is saying something derogatory about liberals/democrats they'll say liberal - "go f*ck a tree you damn liberal". But if it's about conservatives/republicans they'll say republican - "Go have butt sex in a dirty bathroom you damn republican".

Why?


because republicans aren't conservative. the republican party post nixon has been about big-government nanny state and interventionalism. the word conservative belongs to jeffersonians.

post nixon?? at least rodeo is able to supply this forum with some good comic relief. i figured you'd be at least smart enough to say "post reagan" instead. however, the fact that conservatives are in favor of tax cuts automatically disqualifies them from being pro-big government.

^No.

Government has several methods of procuring "government funds", one is taxation, another is deficit spending thru foreign loans, etc.

So by these means, neocons can fool the masses that have followed them blindly in to this new chickenhawk, taxcutting but government growing, statist concept.

Bush is a GREAT example.
He grew the government bigger than any President since FDR, yet lowered taxes, but deficit spent like there was no tomorrow.

Pisspoor management, IMHO.

A true fiscal conservative would not allow this. Just the new breed.
I liken the old school to Goldwater, not Reagan or Bush.

This brings up social conservatism vs. fiscal conservatism.
A whole other issue.

reagan expanded the federal government.
