No, I can't be conservative because I actually care about other human beings.

And take it to the politics tab, troll.

Hell no.  I was married to an arch conservative Republican, and the most I'd do is to tell him to stop talking politics around me, since his idea of talking politics was to gravely insult the politicians I admired.

And when that didn't work, I'd just turn the music up loud and clean the house.

I was a democrat until I met my ex several years ago. Then he told me more about republican and it made sense. I'm still kind of in the middle of the two parties but am more to the right than in the past. I still mostly vote for the right candidate versus voting for which party they're affiliated with.

Yeah, when Bush the Younger got the power to arrest and execute without trial any American citizen, just by naming them a terrorist.  F*ck you Obama for not having the balls to grant habeus corpus to everyone in Guantanamo Bay.  Who am I going to vote for now?  It's obvious the political parties are both corrupt.
 
2013-07-22 12:19:39 AM  
No, I prefer to do my own thinking instead of having someone else do it for me. It makes me a riot at family get-togethers. Also this:

When I was a kid, I was a super arch-conservative. When I was a teenager, I was a kneejerk liberal. Somewhere along the line, the pants-on-head idiocy of both ends of the spectrum convinced me that neither side has any f*cking clue what they're doing, so I just subscribe to the beliefs from the Federalist Papers now.

2013-07-22 12:30:55 AM  
On some issues, yeah. Socially I'm quite liberal, fiscally I'm progressive, on national security I'm all over the map depending on the specific matter at hand and for the most part, I'm what happens when you invite a Lean/Kaizen engineer to the poli-sci majors' table and everyone's head starts to hurt.

There's no party in the 'verse that would want me as a member. As it should be.

The more I hear conservatives babble about their hatred and fear and narrow-mindedness and misogyny, the more I want to be exactly the opposite of them.

Hardly surprising, since you seem to be stuck in the past. Oh. gee. Is that what you're hoping to "conserve"? A time when men were men, and women were barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen, and The Pentagon Papers were just a dream? :)

No, my sanity. Probably a lost cause.

I want to live next to Ozzie and Harriet. I want a maid named Hazel.

I was quite conservative when I was young (raised Catholic, later became a born-again Christian; was a Reagan Republican who also voted for Bush the Elder). Bad personal experiences led me to question my faith; that, and learning the history of Christianity and other belief systems made me realize that religion was bullshiat. By the late 1980s, conservative Christians had taken over the GOP (I guess I was more of a Barry Goldwater Republican, now that I think about it), and I quit the party in disgust in 1992.

I think that's a touchy word.  I'd still like to think I'm fiscally-conservative, but "socially conservative" is just a code word for "legislating what we imagine the Bible's version of morality to be".  F* that.  I don't support fining people who don't purchase 3rd-party health insurance.  The US government has no more right to force me to buy 3rd-party health insurance than it does to force me to buy ketchup or soup or footwear.  It certainly doesn't have the authority to penalize me for not buying a commercial product.
