    Christian right - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I don't know where people get the idea that the GOP is made up of small government minded organizations/people. I will say this though... it appears the religious right needs the radical left as bad as the radical left needs the religious right to keep the $$$$$$$ rolling in! Short of the occasional Libertarian candidate that stumbles into the GOP whorehouse of debauchery, I can't tell the diff between the GOP & the DNC regarding small government policy, can U?

    Nope.

    Democrats at least understand that the ‘size’ of government is a natural consequence of 200 years of National growth and development, and its ‘size’ irrelevant as long as civil liberties are acknowledged and respected.

    Evangelicals are not conservatives.

    Everyone knows that the Christian right would be just fine with a fascist state as long as it is the humanists on the receiving end of oppression but everyone also knows that no republican can win public office without at least paying lip service to them. That moral majority crap is now inextricable from conservative politics, just like all the other fringe groups that muddle their platform with their special interests.

    Some of us know that the left are just as happy with it.

    Every accusation you make about the right applies equally on the left. You don't see it because you agree with their fascism. Idiot.

    Albiet some subscribe...but Conservatives are wider than just the evangelical schtick they are constantly tagged with. Much wider.

    But the Left is narrow and portend to project...and continue to get bit by thier swaths...

    They might call themselves conservative but anyone who votes for social issues as part of federal government policy is not a conservative.

    Very true as it pertains the the Federal Government. That's what the 9th and 10th Amendments were for ...reserved for the Several Soverign States.

    So, where exactly do you think Santorum fits into voting for social issues?
