Conservatives are also concerned for your children in this Country because we see that Obama is severely jeopardizing their future.

I have an 11 yr old child and I worry a great deal about his future if Obama's full agenda is passed. My son, and his generation will be strapped with oppressive taxes to support Obama's monstrous debt. If Cap and Trade, National Healthcare, and amnesty for illegals are passed you will not recognize this Country and it will not likely be able to recover for generations.

We conservatives also want "Change" in America, but in the exact opposite direction of Obama's change. We want Change so that America becomes closer to what our Founding Fathers had in mind in the US Constitution. Obama is moving 180 degrees away from our Constitution.

No one communicates this Country's current situation better than Mark Levin. If you are not a conservative, I challenge you to watch the following videoclip...even show it to your children if they are at an age where they can begin to understand. I guarantee you that his messages will not be taught in public schools or the majority of colleges in the US.

Here is the link to the Mark Levin article (where a videoclip is also imbedded). (By the way, Cholo, if you are viewing this, I encourage you to watch the entire clip ... and I encourage you to, for once, provide a response that is a 'reasoned' one and not a cheap shot.)

Evelyn!

Bush (who YOU conservatives voted in TWICE)went into office when the US had a surplus! DUH!

The events that led to the total financial demise of our Country, (which have already happened on his watch) have left our Country in MAJOR debit for centuries already!

Why weren't you all whining for those 8 years! because we were doing "gods" work with the wars and completely ignoring the financial collapse of our Country?

You "conservatives" are looking like arses!

Jon:
I don't disagree with you that Bush did not adhere 100% to conservative principles. If he were to have adhered, he would not have allowed the massive prescription drug program and the bank bailout. Certainly the war on the US by radical Islam (which was dismissed by Clinton) required substantial defense spending by Bush.

However the fact that Bush did not adhere 100% to conservative principles certainly does not justify Obama's policies of change which are 180 degrees opposite from our US Constitution, freedom, free-enterprise, and national defense!

Evelyn,

BUSH failed both Republicans as well as Democrats and ran this Country into the ground! He played war games based upon outright lies to the American people his whole term.

911 was caused by a VERY, VERY, VERY small number of Radical Islamist and this was master minded in part in a Country which is our alley, Pakistan!

Afghanistan and Iraq had ZERO do with 911.. These wars have done NOTHING to keep us safe or allow our freedom in the U.S. period!

We are in fact MUCH less safe as we have created a hatred toward us that will never go away! Bush failed to focus on security here in the U.S. and we are vulnerable! Extremists are already here in the U.S. and if and when they want to cause destruction, they will do so.

AMERICA will NEVER vote in A TRUE HARD LINE CONSERVATIVE, EVER!

Thank GOD!


You all tend to be JUST as RADICAL and dangerous to the U.S. as the Islam’s!


This is 2009, not the 1800's sp Wake UP!

P.S. Am I, or any other Democrats, Independents any less concerned than the average conservative about corrupt Government or out of control spending? NO!

Do we share many of the same fundamental values? Yes

Do we run around the U.S. spouting hateful rhetoric and insisting people act and believe the way we see fit? No!
