(Not you, Jimbo.)
I see a future gay-rights, liberal Dem in the making here. Nothin` wrong with that, but I guarantee you he`s headed down that road.
Were we even TALKING about Obama? Jesus.
Though to be honest, he`s not exactly brilliant. Take your basic high school Civics book and look up the definition of "conservatism" and there`s his inspiring 3 minute speech.
...Props for charisma!
Anyone else see what I mean?
Sorry about the end being so off subject, I just went with my train of thought.
His manner of speaking annoys me...
Now I sense lots of people that are going to turn their cannons towards me.
Wow. Yeah, how dare that kid think for himself and push himself and people around him to be more intelligent? Why doesn`t he have the decency to just roll over and take it like everyone else? What`s WRONG with him?
You`re wrong, Liberals want to expand government control over everything, when what needs to happen is for the government to get the drat out of everything. The Private Sector has always been there to improve the economy, and obama`s plan to raise taxes on the "wealthy", the people who make the money, and give it away as welfare or in this drating spendulus plan (which will hurt the economy gravely) is criminal. Why so many idiots voted for him remains a mystery, he has no experience, no skills, and no right to lead the nation
Although, interestingly, I think he may already know this and is pulling one over on the audience. And he`s enjoying, it, too, I think. Because, clearly the concept of conservatism that he`s outlining (personal rights) is far less demonstrated in today`s Republican party than it is in today`s Democratic party (see Patriot Act, Warrantless Wire Tapping, rendition, torture, etc.).
Or maybe I`m just reading too much into it.
Sorry friend, you are confusing Liberalism with Libertarianism. Yes, they both start with "L." Liberalism expands the authority of government, as in to interperet "liberally the Constitution."Libretarism recognizes the rights of the individual over the authority of the government. Not the same thing.
My jingotron started smoking, too. And don`t even get me started about the fearmongulator.
Therein lies the problem with conservatism. Do they want liberty or safety? They can`t seem to decide.
"And if we have learned anything from people like Hobbes and Jefferson is that opting for personal responsibility over a more police state, personal safety decreases. The more liberty you have, the more exposed you are."
i believe you`ve stumbled upon a paradox. personally i choose liberty over safety.
And I think that`s the inherent contradiction in conservatism; They claim to want to respect life, yet are not opposed to deadly force to protect one`s own space. They oppose terminating a pregnancy, yet are in favor of the "eye for an eye" penal system.
"kid knows not of what he speaks. maybe after entering puberty he`ll understand the silliness of abstinence, abortion and perhaps gay marriage all in one fell swoop."
"really me? you believe a 13yo knows what "protecting life" means?"
At least the kid knows what`s going on in the world. It`s more than most Americans can say.
Someone (cough... madest) gots some issues to deal with... really at 40ish? still struggling with it?
Huh? Your ignorance, sir has betrayed you before the fact.
.... when did he mention any of that?
At least 25 before you really make sense you twit.
Just because Obama says he`s protecting freedom and enforcing personal responsibility, it doesn`t mean he really is. I would call that god-awful bloated "Stimulus" package a giant monument to Obama`s belief that the government knows better than its citizens. And that is a very dangerous ideology.
Interesting, you just took Obama`s platform and stated that his goals embody "real conservatism" while simultaneously insulting Obama. That`s wingnuttiness at it`s finest.
That being said, I do hope that Republicans start embodying those ideals as well. It feels weird when a Democrat is doing what the Republicans should have always been doing (and were always doing before Regan).
But I have seen kids being used before to spread political propaganda to push forward agendas. Oh man, where did I see that before? Oh yeah, now I remember, http://www.youdecidepolitics.com/2008/09...
And while we`re equating political parties to Nazis, how bout this little number right here. A paramilitary youth organization named after a very charismatic and influential leader, hmmm... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zt6JWzBqL...
Now before anyone says I`m calling Obama Hitler, that`s not the intention. I`m just bringing to light that you can`t paint a party
I`m not saying that his point of view is wrong, but part of growing up is shedding your old view points as you grow wiser.
Problem is, if Obama doesn`t do a stellar job, and he will have a difficult time doing so, it would be a very hard race for a young, inexperienced(as far as dealing with congress), minority candidate.
what next, the dying moose?
you lost bitches.
Kunnicech is a complete liberal and Ron Paul is a complete conservative.
There are not only two ways of thinking people!Not only two solutions to one problem!
There are millions
People who make up their minds about an issue before even hearing it are idiots.
No one is a complete liberal and no one is a complete conservative
Oh, and he should really go ride a bike, play some Xbox 360 NFL 09, or play some hockey....
Protecting people`s freedom and rights and asking for personal responsibility from the country`s citizens, that`s how I want my America. Bush did away with that and Obama is force feeding Americans poorly conceived projects and heaping amounts of debt. I guess screwing the pooch for future generations is the cost of HOPE and CHANGE.
I also really like Bobby Jindal, prime. I won`t make any decision for a few more years, but from what I`ve heard he`s a no-nonsense Washington outsider with a great track record.
It`s tiring hearing conservatives talk about how they "lost their way," or "what a true conservative is." In the end, it`s all a pile of BS.
this kids such a geek.
Yes and all democrats are spoiled little bratty teenage girls who are too ignorant to have an opinion of their own than...right?
Bush isnt conservative, he`s republican but not that much of a conservative.
Continue insulting 13 year olds
I didn`t know Dennis Kunnichech was a republican.
"He`s not smart, he`s republican!"
Good point. So he`s a genius right.
And I already have my ballot cast for 2012. Bobby JindalMy president is Indian
