I'm no Republican, but this OCD neurosis that you have towards anybody on the right does not land credence to anything that you have said, are saying, or will say in the future.

I found it funny...lmao

Ah but let's look at you, so short sighted you see someone who is of the opposite opinion and automatically dismiss what they say because they do not agree with your view or your. Let's take for example the fact you never did answer my question, name one conservative accomplishment that has uplifted this country in a positive way, and has made history doing so? Hell name one conservative that has even raised us from debt to surplus, or brought us out of a recession (Can't use Reagan since he put this country into one before he got us out)

See the problem is, I at least have viable reasons to feel the way I do about conservatives, whats your excuse? Granted being libertarian is easy, just have to blame government for everything and go about your day..lmao

As for my first post, it was a joke friend, maybe you need to pop a Midol, have a cup of java and chill bra...

I gave you a whole fvcking list last time.

But its also laughable that you say that conservatives don't do anything, while I also assume you blame most of our problems on conservative policy.

Q: How many Democrats does it take to change a lightbulb?

A: 5. One to change the lightbulb, but not until another fills out the appropriate forms and has them approved by another, who needs to first receive tax money from another who collects the tax money. Meanwhile, while the first one changes the lightbulb, yet another needs to be there to observe it to make sure everything is done according to regulation.

Let's not forget the one who regulates the lightbulbs, evaluates their environmental impact, imposes a duty on the lightbulb for it's potential environmental harm, protests the lightbulb because it will kill dolphins or something, forms committees to decide on the outcome of the lightbulb, sues the lightbulb maker for making lightbulbs that harm the environment on behalf of the dolphins, declares that the lightbulb in some way causes cancer, sues the light bulb manufacturer for making lightbulbs that cause cancer, pretends to have "evidence" that lightbulbs cause cancer, and extorts campaign contribution money from the lightbulb manufacturer before the company can even make the lightbulb.

Republicans don't try to solve problems through the force of government. Republicans believe change starts with the individual, not government mandates and coercion.

Republicans believe in economic freedom, peace through strength, and individual liberty. (Neo-Cons don't count, they're RINOs)

Couple of these jokes, including this one, was funny. The rest are just insults taking the form of jokes, which isn't humour, it's just spite. Which means only the partisan finds it funny.

If Simon Cowell's pushing for the Conservatives to be in power, I fully expect Rage Against The Machine to win the election.

George Osbourne has had problems for the last week trying to work out how the biscuit budget is now hitting fifty million pounds a month... Then he realised Eric pickles was in charge of stock.

Tory government is much like a rainbow.

It looks good from a distance, but on close inspection it has no real substance, you can see right through it and it's only there because of the sun.

House of lords: the longest running farce in the west end since cats.

I hope David Cameron does turn the UK around.

I'm a bit too close to those French tossers for my liking.

Yep, cause the idiocy of the common citizen that would buy stock on margin has nothing to do with it. It's not the government's fault people live above their means. That is where my disdain for liberals comes from, blame anything but the person.

People don't make themselves fat by choosing a bad lifestyle, unhealthy food makes people fat.

Guns kill people, the person doesn't have a choice.

Society causes gangs, not people who are violent and have bad judgement.

Poverty is caused by genetics and society, not one's financial mismanagement or lack of motivation to get a job.

Cancer is caused by tobacco, people don't have a choice to smoke it.

Poor academic performance, you guessed it, the students and teachers didn't cause it, they need more money!

People having sex and getting knocked up at a young age, parents fault for not sheltering them.

People getting in car crashes, not caused by idiot drivers, we need more road regulations!

The list goes on and on, almost all societal issues come down to this:

Liberals want to blame any societal issue, and sometimes economic issues, on anything but the individual.

If you blame everything on anything but the individual, you are doing a disservice to society, and when the individual does accomplish something, they are left to believe the same thing, it was because of someone else.

Well some conservative presidents who did a whole heck of a lot for this country include:

George Washington
Thomas Jefferson
Abraham Lincoln
Ronald Reagan

You can't deny that these men did not wholly and fundamentally help our country progress and they all had strong conservative values.

If we mean conservative in the proper sense, then they were the most anti-conservatives in most of history. If we mean it in the weird American sense, then of course. Because modern conservatives are classical liberals. And these are classical liberals.

The difference is, liberals learn from the mistakes, as well as the greatness, of past figures and arguments. In other words, you're stuck in the past.

Weak family values = conservative value. In fact, the most common group to criticise this culture are traditional conservatives.

People getting in car crashes, not caused by idiot drivers, we need more road regulations!

Or, just hear me out here, both? Idiot drivers don't go away. Your opposition to this seems to imply a support for some Malthusian or Spencer like social darwinism.

The list goes on and on, almost all societal issues come down to this:

Liberals want to blame any societal issue, and sometimes economic issues, on anything but the individual.

"Honor sets all the parts of the body politic in motion, and by its very action connects them; thus each individual advances the public good, while he only thinks of promoting his own interest." Montesquieu, liberal.

http://scholarcommons.usf.edu...

Multiple quotes in link about individualism in Locke, Mill, and Dewey, the first being a founder of liberalism, and the second being probably the greatest liberal thinker of the modern age, and among the first thinker to truly surpass the likes of Socrates, Aristotle, Plato, Cicero, and others.

"Liberalism ... is based on the conception of civil society as by and large self-regulating when its members are free to act within the very wide bounds of their individual rights." (Raico, liberal)

I don't know why this needs to be said so much when an audience should be politically tuned, but the "liberalism" you seem to criticise has the same values as you.

If you blame everything on anything but the individual, you are doing a disservice to society,

This sentence is more socialist than liberal. No atomist liberal would even refer to society. You're arbirtarily freedom-loving, not 'conservative' or 'liberal'. Which'd be fine if it wasn't for the key word "arbitrary".

Harding ended the 1921 recession
Coolidge brought us a surplus
Also, why does the 1981 recession not count? It should. On fact, Reagan tax policies did not go into effect until the unemployment rate was high. When they came into effect the recession was fixed.

Finally, it seems you have no idea what an economic cycle is. Recessions are inevitable no matter who is in office. Eisenhower had a recession in his second term, but it was quickly resolved because he took no approach.

Why is that interesting? Crashes happen.
Look at the roaring 1990s with Clinton and the tech boom, and the crash of 2001 (9/11 accelerated it, but it was happening before)
