Interesting idea. Can you elaborate?
@normalice I wouldn't call that the "right". It isn't that people who are truly "Conservative" are scared of being weak. They are truly trying to make a statement about individuality, family and community. That these three things must be strengthened and that should be the preferred method for how we build a strong nation.What I will admit to is this. . . there is a method for manipulating people where you insult them for being weak because they advocate for a certain policy. And insulting them this way causes this reflect action where they become easy to manipulate.But truthfully, we wouldn't be in trillions in debt, if we had Conservatives running the nation. I guess it just goes to show how much we are manipulated and lied to.
Republicans triple the debt and give most of the money they print from it to themselves every time they get power. The idea that conservatives want to do anything about the debt besides increase it to pay themselves more is just plain a failure to have paid attention to anything, at all, in the last 40 years.
But that is not "Conservatism". That is a corruption of Conservatism. Perhaps there was time when most truly believed in those principles. I would be the first to admit we don't have many of those types around anymore.
A fair point, but I would also point out that this always seems to be the end result of conservativism. I don't know why it is so instantly prone to corruption, but it seems to me that a functiong government requires funding. The exact boundaries of what government should be responsible for may be debatable but it seems that the concept of reducing spending, just for the sake of reducing spending, draws in people who see it as an opportunity to, instead, redirect that spending to themselves. People who want to reduce spending because it is in excess, however, tend to first make sure it is in excess. And to do that requires acknowledging that some spending is necissary. Conservatives don't want to admit that ever.
I know why.
Agreed smoke lol

OH NO!! THE SECRET IS OUT!!! SHHHHHhhhhhhhH!!!
Come on. You know this isn't true. There are many on the right who've participated in protests and riots. What about the guy who killed someone "protecting property." You're not calling that rioting? He came from another state and had nothing to do with the protest at hand! And those who rioted in the many BLM protests were NOT PART OF THE BLM group. They were people who used those protests as platforms to riot and cause chaos. The Proud Boys are an oddball group who've espoused a plethora of racist, non racist and moderate political opinions. They seem to be a drinking group that chooses a host of causes to champion on whatever day it happens to be. There were rioters from the right in Richmond, VA, who drove into a crowd and killed someone. This was all over the news. It is neither left NOR right. It covers the political spectrum. And we cannot identify everyone in a protest as being PART OF THE GROUP PROTESTING. When a confederate statue was removed from a site in New Orleans, protesters came from other states to wave battle flags and contest the action. Looters and rioters are criminals. I don't think they have any political leaning except crime. People in grassroots movements aren't interested in breaking the law, but amending it for the better of the groups they represent. That is true RIGHT or LEFT.
@Screenwriter not saying I disagree with what everything you said but for some odd reason Antifa and many other snowflakes that engage themselves in most of these modern day riots call themselves leftists
AND THEY ARE INCORRECT SIR. They are sowing chaos. That is not liberality or leftism. It's destructive. These people have no political leanings. THey are about negativity. They want to achieve nothing but to tear everything down. I would say they are anarchists. Why they are is anybody's guess. There are always such people. Wish they'd found their own fucked up region to live in.
@Screenwriter they hear you say such thing they will probably get so butthurt that they will no doubt trash your home and car
Bring it on bitches. I'm a liberal with a 12 gauge shotgun and LOTS of shells. They wanna mess with me they WILL GET BUTTHURT FOR REAL!
