Could Conservatives really be THAT much of a minority?

I know most of us (with some exceptions) sit here and rally, curse and bang our heads against the wall about the current democratic majority in the Senate and the current Administration's Hell Bent 100 mile per hour course to socialism.

But something got me thinking today... maybe we ARE in the minority now. Maybe the radical left has really converted enough sheeple in the government run schools, colleges, and other institutions to have long lasting control.

If this is true, the conservative cause while not being dead, may be in a Coma for the next decade or two. And if so, will we even recognize our country when its over?

A scary thing to think about... Thoughts?

You can look no further than Europe for an example of what can happen. They are now turning the corner back towards a more conservative political leaning. Even the French have seen what out-of-control social programs (including health care) can do to a country.

I think Obama feels that it is, and unfortunately we'll have to deal with his overstepping to see how people respond.

Based on the puking his poll numbers are doing I'd say there is a lot more conservative views than he anticipated.

Keep in mind that we thought the democratic party was done for when Bush got reelected in 04

The only thing that is constant is change.


(actual change, not Obama's bullshit thinnly veiled socialism and fascism form of change)

The pendulum has swung to the far left but it won't stay there long just like it doesn't stay to the far right for very long.

Conservatives are simply too involved in making ends meet to show their numbers. We simply don't do enough to fight this bullshit. We need to organize. Plan. Enact. Follow through. Where are we on that guys? When's the next meeting?

I think it has much more to do with the fact that the Democratic party utilizes technology much more efficiently. Conservatives do things old school. They need to be more tech-savvy.

Got a link to the whole video in your sig? I'd like to see if that guys gets a good beat down for sweeping that chick like that...

And I'm not sure on the tech thing as I'm not sure exactly how many computers our taxes are buying these pieces of shit who suck our money up to support their "non-contributing to society" life styles...

The dude doesn't speak English. She flipped him off and asked if he understands that in English, then throws a beer on him.

The video cuts off pretty quick, it does not appear he receives the ass beating he deserves.

I can't believe someone would actually consider that acceptable. But now I guess we know what kind of ass Taylor is.

Hahahah this made it all the way over here?

There was a link to the entire thing but it's broken now. If I see it again I'll post it. She talked a bunch of shit then threw the beer in his face. I'm not one to hit a woman but if she pulls some shit like that in front of an audience she's gonna get humiliated. Next time she'll think twice before trying to look cool.

Let me ask you this - what would you have done in his place?

Agreed.

I also agree that technology is important in order for conservatives to make a real difference. Most people do not watch TV at work, however, if they are on a computer at work, they would be able to get news via the internet or email. INTERNET AND EMAIL ARE POLITICALLY VITAL TODAY.

Look at what Bama's doing when his popularity declines a little. He is mobilizing emails to gain support from his campaign followers. Link - http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0109/18208.html

Conservatives are not a minority. Looking at the results of the last election, most of the states around Texas voted in the Red. It all comes down to electoral votes in the end. Study this report. http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/results/president/ Look at who voted for Bama and do what you can to change it. Additionally, the exit polls show a high percentage of 18-29 year olds voted for Bama as well as a large percentage of females. These are the groups that need a reason to question their vote. If you would like to contact them, they can be reached via email or internet.

I think the problem is that the republican party does not have a strong enough agenda like we did in the mid 90s. the party really did accomplish everything it set out do do in the 90s. right now it seems that the only thing the party is out to accomplish is to block the left, which is exactly where the left was in the 90s. the party needs to find some new issues, and set some goals, to win back the american people.

Most Americans are like Dallas Cowboy fans... as long as their team is winning, they support them... once things start heading south, they abandon them...

The democrats didnt put Obama in office and the Republicans cant kick him out... the independents are the key to the whole thing... I think they bought into the Obama hype with th help of the media but the reality of the situation is starting to set in... as they learn that Obama is full of shit, they'll change their tunes...

the winner in 2010 and beyond will be the one that "reaches" the independents...

I honestly think that Conservatives ARE in the minority. What is even worse, I think that the numbers are shrinking as well. Conservatives are too morally based in their stances. That being said, they are held to a higher level of accountability for what they say, what they do and what they leave undone.

This goes against our growing society's overall outlook. Nobody publically preaches about responsibility or morals. They're to busy about "me" or "I" and getting ahead. Both SHOULD be taught, but there needs to be a balance. Most of our leaders and educators have taken the easy route this last half century.

There is also the lack of producing a person's own mind stimulation and time for reflection. Today, there are WAY too many forms of entertainment that keep people from sitting idle. As soon as there is nothing going on or nothing to do, earphones go in and the ipod cranks up; or the texting begins; or video games are played; or there has to be something on the 548795623405 channels offered by the local cable company. Where does a person make time to stop everything and reflect on the thing he/she has done or said throughout the day? Where can a person think on his/her own about the events around them without any outside influence clouding their judgment? It's times like those that make a person's decisions truly theirs. It's times like those that people become more creative. It's the foundation of a person's characteristic. It's the starting point for a person's development of his/her own true self. THIS is where GOOD decisions are made.

Give people time to themselves without outside distractions and they'll wake themselves up to things they really need to be concerned with.

I think that bush really soured a lot of people on the republicans, and we had a lot of people voting anti-bush and pulling the lever for obama.

I think that a lot of those people now have buyers remorse.

I think that as obamas agenda unfolds there will be more buyers remorse.

I think that a lot of young voters may be learning a lesson by electing a liberal candidate.

Like someone said, the pendulum swings from conservative to liberal and back again. The pendulum swung wildly toward liberal with obama's election. Now I think that a backlash is building against the liberal agenda, and that opens the doors again for a conservative candadite. I hope that the conservative folks can do something with this.

I think you are correct and I hope the pendulum is swinging back at full speed.

I have to agree with a quote from former Treasury Secretary William E. Simon: "Bad politicians are sent to Washington by good people who don't vote."
