    As I'm reading the various posts and threads on here, and recollecting what I've read elsewhere (hint: I Lost My Sanity) and what I'm seeing the RW say in the "lame stream media."

    Many "conservatives" seem to equate conservative with right wing fundamentalist christianity.

    So much so that there is an internal war that has begun where the RW Christian Fundamentalist are either leaving on their own or being asked to leave if they can't tone down or out their RW fundamentalist Christianity w/their one-issue social-issue voting.

    With that said, those who are equating the two, are simply flat-out wrong.

    Actually, what do you consider "conservative" to mean anyway. What does conservative mean to you USMB?

    It’s likely conservatives themselves don’t even know anymore.

    By "retarded" I take it you actually meant..."prolific." And by "meme" you actually meant..."observation."

    Thanks man! :thup:

    It's a good thing though.

    You are just another weak-minded tribalist who actually believes America can survive and prosper by dividing us up and having us chuck spears at one another.

    In a down economy the GOP lost in a big way. Now they can take an objective look at what the issues were that led to their defeat, or they can retreat back into that alternative reality where they were on 5Nov12. When they were insisting that Romney was going to win big, in spite of all the polls showing just the opposite.

    So, if you really believe that going even further to right will be the salvation of your party, see you in 2014 and 2016.

    Seeing that you are one of the main spear chuckers, I call hypocracy on you.

    An excellant example of the idiocy of your own tribalism was the reaction to Governor Christie thanking the President for timely aid before, during, and after Sandy. Many here are actually calling him treasonous because he cooperated with all government agencies to insure as much help for the citizens of New Jersey as he could get. And he said "Thank You" for the help he got.
