    This! Real constitutional conservatives would never advocate spying on Americans. They would advocate legalization, privacy, personal choice and personal responsibility. They would want a strong military but only for defense...no World Police and no nation building.

    i agree, when you look at the figureheads in the party, graham, mccain, baenor sp?, they are the futherist thing from a real conservative. they are basically 1980's democrats.

I have read and even posted a few times that the political continuum is not linear but horseshoe shaped such that far right and far left end up basically being very similar and the middle being the most different from both left and right. I would imagine that almost all Americans fit at the closed end of the horseshoe and it rightfully scares all of us to see things trek too far down either leg because it ends up essentially being totalitarian. What is left and right in America is not really the extremes seen on a global scale.
    I never said a far-let party. I just said a left party. You can be a left party without going to communism...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    We are on the same page, that is why I qualified my statement that our perception of far left or right is not necessarily absolute left or right.
