Liberals are in attack mode. I know some of these liberals are reading my shit because I have seen several post in blogland defending the angst in the liberal community.
There are articles spouting up referring to the “angry conservative”.
I find this amusing. In the blog Journalists Against Bush's B.S. (JABBS) there is an article “Conservatives Love to Discuss Mythical "Angry Left," But Rarely Refer to Actual "Angry Right".
(SAME STORY, DIFFERENT BLOG).I keep telling you they have marching orders and post the same rants)
Mythical angry left is amusing to me. Folks I have said so many times read the liberal blogs on my sidebar, read the hysteria, the drama, the anger. Now you have the Rolling Stones getting publicity for a song chanting about “NeoCons”.
Liberals feed off anger, hysteria. They have yet to figure out that you cannot scare people into voting for you. You cannot call people stupid and expect them to vote for you. You cannot malign their faith and make fun of their “god”, and expect them to see your point of view.
Go back to this website” The Living Room Candidate, Reagan vs Mondale (This site has video of all campaign commercials since the 50’s) Look at the contrast in the difference in how Reagan and conservatives portrayed America and how liberals viewed America.
In Mondale’s campaign commercials his basic point was if you elect Reagan, YOUR GOING TO FUCKEN DIE!

Yes our world has changed since then. But the personalities of the two parties has not.
This is why you liberals get such a rush by Cindy Sheehan types. There was NOTHING special about this woman, she had no message, she had no insight but you people rallied around her utter nonsense.
I want to see the President. she had no fucken RIGHT to see or visit with him AGAIN!But you liberals rode that pony.

Liberals NEED something to rally around. They NEED to be angry about something. Bush is the perfect target for them. This is also, why the anger does not translate in the polls.
All of you angry pissed off leftist bloggers do nothing but theorize.
I would bet that many of you are not active in your local school board meetings, city council meetings, and neighborhood associations.
I would bet that many liberal types have never been to a local zoning hearing, planning commission meeting, park board, CDBG, Board of Zoning Appeals, Traffic Commission.
Yep, your thinking what the fuck is that shit, and what does that have to do with the NeoCons and Bush destroying America!?
If your asking that question, then that is the problem. This country does not live or die with G. Dub. While you spend all of your time, talent and efforts trying to come up with solving the problems in Iraq.........LET ME PAUSE THERE....
We are in Iraq for the long haul. We need to be there, and yes its about Oil so get over it! worry about your communities, schools, kids. Take care of the home front FIRST. I’m not saying ignore what is happening elsewhere, but some of you need to get a fucken grip on yourselves.

Are You a Neocon?

Regular readers of LRC or other right-of-center sites are sure to have seen terms like "neoconservative" and "paleo-libertarian" from time to time. A quick Google search can explain what the words mean, but definitions don’t really answer the more interesting and important question – which one are you?

Naturally you might be neither "paleo" nor "neo." But for those who’d like to find out I devised a quick quiz during a spell of procrastination a few months back. Here it is. After answering twenty questions it’ll give you my impression of which of ten modern American ideologies is the best fit for you, along with links to sites representing the philosophy of each.

There’s no shortage of political quizzes on the ‘net, but how many others includes "paleoconservative" and "third way" as categories? Not many (or any) that I’ve seen. And to be thoroughly immodest, this quiz is less slanted than most too. I’m a pale-something myself though, so if you find bias that’s where I’m coming from. Other than that the major flaw is that I don’t know modern left-wing ideologies at all well, so the categories of "radical," "liberal" and "third-way" probably are not how leftists would classify themselves.

The quiz questions are mostly about public policy. An alternative method would have been to ask general philosophical questions, or even to ask for interpretations of historical events. I chose the policy-oriented approach because it seemed most straightforward and clear.

Here, in brief, are the ideologies that the quiz examines. The sketches below aren’t an answer key, but you can probably deduce from the definitions how someone of a given ideology would answer a particular question. That’s the entire principle of the quiz, after all.

Centrist – Just what it sounds like. Someone who doesn’t have any particularly strong ideological leanings in any direction.

Conservative – Specifically a "fusionist" conservative of the National Review - Heritage Foundation mold. Someone who believes in traditional morality and capitalism, and the need for a limited government to allow both to flourish.

Left-libertarian – The quiz uses a mild definition of a left-libertarian, an anti-statist who is somewhat fearful of corporate and religious influence on public life.

Liberal – Supports economic regulation to promote social justice and takes a progressive stance toward moral or cultural issues.

Libertarian – A libertarian opposes most or all government activites. Does not favor much or any government support for either moral or economic systems.

Neoconservative – A "neocon" is more inclined than other conservatives toward vigorous government in the service of the goals of traditional morality and pro-business policies. Tends to favor a very strong foreign policy of America as well.

Paleoconservative – "Paleocons" want less US involvement in foeign affairs than other conservatives and oppose mass immigration. They are also more favorably disposed toward the South and the idea of secession, or at least decentralization, than neoconservatives.

Paleo-libertarian – Similar to other libertarians except for oppostion to mass immigration, and shares the paleocon appreciation of the South.

Radical – Critical of bouregois morality and strongly opposed to capitalism and willing to use state power to achieve desired ends.

Third-way – More supportive of foreign intervention than liberals and less supportive of economic regulation, coupled with more-or-less progressive social views. "Third-way" is to liberal what neoconservative is to conservative.
