Sally, you have got to be kidding me? This is what you call intelligence?

Conservative values recognize the adversarial nature of politics, and much in life. As a result of their ability to deal with adversity, conservative values are superb in defending against obesity,[1] addiction,[2] adversity,[3] anxiety,[4] fear,[5] depression, narcissism,[6] risky law-breaking activities like dangerous driving,[7] self-destructive behavior, illiteracy,[8] rejection, wastefulness, and serious mental disorders.[9] Conservatives are happier than liberals, and one study gives a reason: conservatives do not insist upon a mindless "equality".[10]

Conservative values are also helpful in recognizing and combating deceit. A conservative understands the many incentives by others to engage in deceit, and the political power that can result from such deceit. A conservative is often not surprised by the deception that fools others.

Conservative values include:

placing ideas and principles above personal desire, weaknesses, fears and regrets
a never-ending quest for the truth, despite obstacles based on emotion and personal experience, and spreading such truths for the benefit of all
recognizing and utilizing the benefits of competition and hard work
emphasizing charity, with its unexpected benefits, rather than compulsory tax-and-spend programs
teaching self-help rather than dependence on government and others
a devotion to the principle of justice
supporting self-defense
recognizing the media for its bias, bullying, deception.
frugality and efficiency
rejecting the deification of government officials
giving those in authority due respect, but not to the point of accepting orders or assertions that are contrary to logic or morality
downplaying significance of wealth, disparities in wealth, and materialism in general[11]
emphasizing self-reliance and being able to keep the fruits of one's labor
not complaining, and instead taking practical action to improve one's situation
emphasizing self-restraint against hurtful activities
emphasizing humility and open-mindedness instead of arrogant certainty about one's own views
recognizing the power of the free market
understanding that a rising tide lifts all boats, e.g. tax cuts benefit all.
self-control as opposed to a self-indulgent search for instant gratification of desires.
Conservative values are useful and powerful in combating common human weaknesses:

Lust
Laziness
Jealousy
Gluttony
Pride
Conflict
Corruption
Credulity

"not complaining, and instead taking practical action to improve one's situation


emphasizing self-restraint against hurtful activities


emphasizing humility and open-mindedness instead of arrogant certainty about one's own views "

Really? I wonder about that?

I am a proud liberal with values, and if I knew of a website like the one you just provided, I certainly wouldn't post it to further my cause.
I just have to re-post the list of "common human weaknesses" that conservative values are "powerful and useful in combatting," while reflecting on the last several months of Republican scandals:
Lust


Laziness


Jealousy


Gluttony


Pride


Conflict


Corruption


Credulity

This is Liberal according to that conserved site:

Liberal
From Conservapedia
Jump to: navigation, search
A liberal (also leftist) is someone who rejects logical and biblical standards, often for self-centered reasons. There are no coherent liberal standards; often a liberal is merely someone who craves attention, and who uses many words to say nothing. Liberalism began as a movement for individual liberties, but today is increasingly statist, and in Europe even socialistic.

The long romance of Western leftists with some of the bloodiest regimes and political movements in history is a story not told often enough ...[1]
A liberal generally supports many of the following political positions and practices:

Taxpayer-funded and/or legalized abortion
Censorship of teacher-lead prayer in classrooms and school sponsored events
Support for gun control
Support of obscenity and pornography as a First Amendment right[2]
Income redistribution, usually through progressive taxation
Government-rationed medical care, such as Universal Health Care
Taxpayer-funded and government-controlled public education
The denial of inherent gender differences
Insisting that men and women have the same access to jobs in the military
Legalized same-sex marriage
Implementation of affirmative action
Political correctness
Support of labor unions
Teaching acceptance of promiscuity through sexual "education" rather than teaching abstinence from sex.[3]
A "living Constitution" that is reinterpreted as liberals prefer, rather than how it was intended

A satirical conception of the liberal brain.Government programs to rehabilitate criminals
Abolition of the death penalty
Environmentalism[4]
Disarmament treaties
Globalism
Opposition to an interventionalist American foreign policy [5]
Opposition to full private property rights[6]
Reinstating the Fairness Doctrine
In 2005, it was reported by CBS News that liberals were the most likely supporters of the theory of evolution. The theory of evolution is a key component of atheistic ideologies in the Western World.
Opposition to domestic wire-tapping as authorized in the Patriot Act
Calling anyone they agree with a "professor" regardless of whether he earned that distinction based on a real peer review of his work (see, e.g., Richard Dawkins and Barack Obama).

Cholo, You're in need of an education. But at least you can read. That's a start. Try getting an education at a school instead of the pleasanton weekly.

Sally Fischer and people like her (with the holier-than-thou mentality) who begin these types of threads are simply looking to start a fight and a battle and so many of you take the bait.

What will stop this sort of ignorance may be to simply not waste your time, not respond & ignore her and people like her, whether they be conservative or liberal.

There is a motive for these type of posts and rhetoric like this all across the nation. They are recruiting for more idiots! See the Impeach Obama thread and that one on the KKK as well. It's getting heavy out there! There is a civil war type movement because these losers lost and they are loosing their ability to cope.

I hate to admit, but because Obama is Black, I think it's promoting more radical extremist behavior from the right. Most conservatives across the board are livid that a black man took the oval office.

Yes, and IF Obama were anything like Bush, we would consider the right wing to be a national security threat at this point. We would send them off to a prison camp for years, without any charges, all in the name of national security! hey, that's a thought! Remember folks, this is just an on line anonymous forum! People are angry for a lot of reason, and the underlying issues didn't start or end with Obama. People were loosing there homes and their jobs for several years, we went into a prolonges recession, etc.
