Endive Wombat: As a conservative, It is astounding to me how I am becoming more and more alienated by the Republican Party, especially during this past election cycle. Yeah, I am a registered Republican who voted for the Democrats this time around.For a bunch of God fearing, church going folk, they sure do not care much about social welfare, the poor, and the disenfranchised. I am starting to get sick of them focusing on shiat like women's access to abortion when they should be focusing on why she is needing one in the first place and fixing that - poor, young, uneducated, forced into prostitution, whatever...Maybe it is because I am almost 30 and now with a little bit of life behind me, and have escaped my hometown - Orange County, SoCal...I am starting to see things a little differently...but the amount of crazy in the Republican Party is horrifying. While it is my own anecdotal observation...and don't get me wrong, the Dems have their mixed bag of far left cray cray too, I see the Dems as a lot more mainstream than anything else...it appears to me that they have done a pretty good job distancing themselves from the mega crazy and the Republicans need to do the same with the extreme religious right.

bwilson27: Wait, college girls love to fark?
More_Like_A_Stain: Endive Wombat: I see limited sized government more in a what I can and cannot do aspect rather than a monetary aspect. If I want to build a 60ft tall pink dildo on my property, I should be allowed.You pickin' up what I'm throwin' down?Big government again. Without out government intrusion, how will we know if your 60ft tall pink dildo is structurally sound? Are the materials used certified as safe for such an application? Were worker safety standards followed during construction? An entire new bureaucracy will have to be formed, as surely you can't be saying that the local county building department is prepared to take on such a burden.

sparkeyjames: Dr.Zom: No Obamaphone?Excuse me for getting serious here. The Obamaphone is actually a George W. Bush invention. I'm serious here stop laughing.Republican Saint, Ronald Reagan in 1984 with the FCC created a program called Lifeline. A program to help welfare and othergovernment assistance recipients get affordable telephone service. In 2008 then President Bush updated this FCC program to include Cellularphones. Hence GWB invented the Obamaphone or is that the GWBphone?The program does not get one dollar of your income taxes. It is paid for by a sir-tax on existing telephone service.

spcMike: Endive Wombat: As a conservativeA real conservative would've bought an American car.
lennavan: So you think there will be an enormous number of people wanting big pink dildos in their yard if we were to allow it?That's interesting.
QueenMamaBee: So where do I donate to the 60 Ft Tall Pink Dildo fund? Because that would be worth a road trip just to have an awesome story for the great grandkids one day.
TheOther: What about power consumption? Is it Green? Does it run on Ancient Alien D-cells or is it hooked up to the grid? When you turn it on, will the vibrations cause nearby buildings to collapse? earthquakes? Whale beachings?
YoungSwedishBlonde: Well, it all depends on how "minority" you look. You know, sorta like those signs at the amusement park, but like "You must be this dark to collect welfare" instead.
Needlessly Complicated: I was told I would get a pony.Still waiting.
QueenMamaBee: I have a 66 Ford Mustang for sale!!! :)
bulldg4life: Bleyo: We just haven't updated what we label ourselves.People always fight to label themselves conservative. Part of it is making themselves seem sensible and part of it is the dirty connotation that liberal or progressive has become within american society.
Endive Wombat: I think that once the nervous system of the developing fetus surpasses the complexity of a lobster
lennavan: We really don't. This last election I saw a dude in the center and a dude on the far right. Everyone wants to expand or at least maintain the military. Why? What are we so afraid of?
graggor: whats the deal folks? states that go for romney have a higher percentage of their population on welfare.States that go for obama have a lower percentage on welfare....
