I'm a conservative, I'd go so far as to say I'm a libertarian. None the less I was pleased to see Obama elected especially when compared to McCain. God am I glad to see that man wasn't elected. It seems he brought out the worst in the conservative political movement and was a magnet to radicals who often get confused with logical and sane conservatives.
As a conservative I believe in the basic sense of the word. Conserve as much power for the people and the states as possible from the federal government. I believe nationalism can be a very slippery slope and should never be taken lightly as it can lead to infringement on civil liberties. I believe that the war in Iraq is morally and fundamentally wrong and war with Iran is just fucking stupid. I don't support Israel, not because I'm an antisemite but because their foreign policy is utterly horrifying. I can understand both sides of it but I see it as a quagmire that America shouldn't be involved in. I'm not an isolationist but I don't think America should be swinging her sword all over the globe as she tends to. I believe that the 2nd amendment is essential for freedom and liberty. I believe crime isn't caused by guns or automatic rifles but by socio-economic problems. To say guns cause crime is asenine. I believe wholeheartedly in the constitution and believe it means exactly what is says and is yet to become outdated as some would argue. I'm not religious and believe the separation of church and state is absolute. I'm open to hearing the ins and outs of any argument and believe civil discourse cannot take place without logical argument. I am willing to change my stance on issues if you're ready to present a logical argument and willing to see my view as well and accept that your political beliefs might be flawed. I'm willing to "agree to disagree" is that so rare?
Are these beliefs really that terrible? I would think that such beliefs would be a lot more common. What the fuck happened to the viability of the conservative party? Why are so called conservatives voting for such outrageous proposals like the patriot act and the war in Iraq? Am I crazy or do I just have a bad case of "raised in Wyoming". The republican party has truly lost its way, and completely lost touch with its principles. What do you guys think?
