I woke up today and realize that their is still hope in America for freedom.
Are you referring to the Senate victory of Pro-Choice Brown?
I sure hope he keeps his campaign promises....
He's still going to have to do the bidding of the people of Masssachusettes which is hardly a stronghold of conservatism.
So enjoy your little victory. It's not going to amount to anything.
Be careful what you wish for, be careful what you wish for, la la la la la la, LOL...
HEY, YOU are into HOPE - is it the kind you can believe in, la la la la la la...
All Gains are incremental.
And if good sense can triumph in MA, it can happen anywhere
Ah, see some attempt to detract from Brown's conservatism by stating he is pro-choice.
Brown is fiscally conservative and socially moderate.
His stance is one of smaller government, lower taxes, and strong on defense. He also called for a repeal of the gay marriage law in Massachusetts and he supports enhanced interrogation of suspected terrorists.
In essence, Scott Brown is a JFK Democrat - something the Democrat Party sadly moved away from a number of years ago. A JFK Democrat of today is now a moderate conservative Republican!!
Perhaps the party will wise up, dump the too left Big Government liberalism of Reid and Pelosi (and Obama?) and align itself once again with the more moderate political middle that is most of America.
Same goes for the Republicans...
I don't think that individuals should have to moderate their beliefs in order to be in the middle. Most of the time that is done for some kind of power thing because if you can get everyone agreeing on something then the political process moves but what if it is moving in a direction you do not like? Should you have to support something you don't believe in?
I know its lonely being the only guy that holds a belief but there is nothing wrong with trying to convince others of what you believe. That is how change happens in this country.
Another neocon in Washington does not inspire hope for freedom in my mind.
You conservatives our very welcome. It was our independant pleasure to serve you up this victory.
