Words mean something. Really? What exactly is a conservative today? Is it whatever that particular voter wants done? Does it relate to conservative living? So like fighting a war you don't pay for won't happen?
Anyway besides a little rant, I thought this was worth reading about the latest Republican contract on America...
Let the weak starve? Don't worry about jobs for anybody as that's their problem? Health care? Let them eat cake! Don't discourage any jobs from going overseas if it will increase the stock market at home? Destroy the public education system, who needs the rabble to be educated? Who cares about anybody except themselves? Is that what being a conservative means today?
It sure seems that way to me, and most of them call themselves Christians too. Wonder how much of the Gospels most have ever read. I'd suggest starting with the Sermon on the Mount. Although the way they redefine words maybe they'd like to rewrite the Beatitudes for today, something a little more in keeping with their concept of Jesus, you know the guy who liked money and didn't have much use for mercy.
