So neocons are Democrats. That makes perfect sense.
Tpahl---instead of getting pisssed every time election day rolls around, why doesn't your candidate either play the game better or find a way to beat the game itself ? Why should someone vote for a candidate who does neither?
Isn't 'neocon' just a term for a reagan era democrat? Thats the impression I was under. :scratch:
Sort of. Neoconservatism is the conservative movement that was spurred by Reagan in the '80's, but neocon doesn't have to be a democrat that follows it. This is just an attempt by some people to come up with a "dirty word" for conservatives like liberal has become a dirty word in itself.
neocon is used in place of "neoconservative", by a user who considers himself "cool" when doing so.
A neoconservative is "a former liberal espousing political conservativism".
Most who use the term neocon don't have a clue what the fuck they're talking about. They think using that term will somehow give people the impression they do know. But in tpahl case, he appears clueless also.
Try to stay on topic.
