Re your comment

Why is it that you are always defending the party or the politician and I am always defending the ideology?

Defending the ideology is fine–but ideology doesn’t execute plans, people do. I asked you Sunday to name a fiscal conservative and you couldn’t. You say you don’t like the Repubs either, but you like the ideology of fiscal conservativism. OK–so where does that get you? I defend people who share my ideology, because people do things–ideology doesn’t–it just sits there waiting to manifest itself through action.  Ideas are great; principles are great. But what if I say I like the idea of being physically fit? Ok that’s fine–but it requires action not just admiration or respect. I like Obama’s ideas, so I support him (mostly) AND his ideas (mostly). Also, don’t confuse my dislike for the Republican party and its ideas for the liking of the Democratic party. I have problems with the Democratic party’s people and ideas too.

Modern Repubs

This is what the Republican party means to me at this point–and millions of others.

We are the party of:

Small government and fiscal conservatism–Really? Seen the national debt, deficit and size of this government lately? Unprecedented.

Strong defense: Fighting bungled wars of choice and causing most of the world to hate us.

Traditional values: Like homophobia intolerance and religious certitude

Torture: Nothing more to say

Throw in some media blowhards, Palin, Bush and Cheney and there you have it. Can’t subscribe to that. How about you?

Interesting article

I know you are not very interested in the Israel/Palestinian situation but this is a very interesting article.
