    What people don't understand is the principles that define being a conservative aren't about being greedy. Its about protecting your individual rights. Taxes should be used to pay for all the necessary Functions the government provides not provide money for
    unfortunate people who have been out of work for close to 2 years. That being said I do feel the wealthy have some moral A Poor Conservative responsibility to consider his fellow man and even donate money as he sees fit. It just shouldn't be taken from him forcefully from A Poor Conservative the Government.

    Political idealogies of the right and left are fictional. They have no set meanings, change with the wind and never actually adhere or apply.

    It's like christianity, which is in policy blatantly at odds with the conduct of it's patrons.

    In addition to being fictional ideologies are not even required to be credible, consistent or plausible. They can be and are any mish mash of contradictory quasi values and maxims one chooses to adopt, and almost as often as not each one of those tenets is a rationalization at odds with the real world.

    Conservatism and liberalism are modern culture cults, and most of their practitioners are brainwashed lemmings.

    Insofar as the labels have any meaning, liberals and conservatives disagree about the proper functions of government. The does not mean either side fails to grasp what the other is on about.

    Define "wealthy." Exactly what constitutes being "wealthy."

    Here's an example:

    A pro ballplayer is rich. The guy who signs his check is wealthy.

    Is it just me or is this a slow thread day? I found the OP opaque and the idea that a mod had to edit it to make it more intelligible and it still came out that way is bizarre. (I assume Intense is staff and presumably he did as professional a job as possible and that makes the result even more frightening.)

    I know what the right says they are for which is not the same as what they actually do.
