Can you give a coherent reasoning as to why you think this is?

Ron Paul has the right principles, but he's far too idealistic and inflexible in applying them.

This would be the same for the Democrats in the UK. They would be considered on par with our conservative party.

Only on the eminent domain issue, you have it on the wrong side. Liberals have been fighting against that while Conservative judges have ruled in way that expanded eminent domain to the extent that in Florida the government can take your house to build a mall.

Of course it is, it's punishing people that actually work. So they can reward those who don't. Brilliant indeed isn't it?

*So they can maintain roads, pay government employees, and make sure old people don't die in ditches covered in their own filth.
#220 to #187 - nightstar (04/18/2013) [-]
What happened before the 16th amendment? Oh right, the state and local governments built the local roads, paid the local government workers, and made sure old people didn't die in a ditch (wut).

When the 16th amendment was introduced, it was supposed to never exceed 3% or income and only apply to the richest of Americans. But then, the Fed's decided they needed more money... and more... and more......
User avatar #205 to #187 - beerterror (04/10/2013) [-]
What? There are normal taxes, per capita (that's the word?), as from the dawn of time, that are meant soley for that.

Every party has their own nut-cases. Just like every political, religious, and racial group, they shouldn't be generalized due to a small percentage that makes up the group.
User avatar #53 to #47 - chaotixx (04/10/2013) [-]
How can I not generalize when conservatives have idiots like Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaught, and that snide little cunt Caiden Cowger leading the threshold? Sorry if I came off as a dick.
#7 to #4 - epicx (04/09/2013) [-]
Well I think he means republicans. They do a lot of imposing their morals onto other people. Issues like gay marriage, they only reason they fight it is because it is against their religion.
User avatar #9 to #7 - douthit (04/09/2013) [-]
I did mean conservatives, not Republicans. Conservatives are for just as much government intervention and intrusion into people's lives as liberals are, just in different areas.
#50 to #9 - epicx (04/10/2013) [-]
Well conservatism has become like communism. The definition got redefined when people who were financially conservative, were generally also for things like a ban on gay marriage. People saw conservatism as the whole scope of their beliefs when really conservatism is no more than a financial belief.
User avatar #8 to #4 - douthit (04/09/2013) [-]
They're really not. That's how they brand themselves, but it's simply not true. I was the most ardent conservative I knew for the longest time, until I realized they're for initiating violence against people, like with drug laws, prostitution laws, gambling laws, giving money to foreign countries, warmongering, spending trillions on the military, etc.
User avatar #68 to #4 - Ruspanic (04/10/2013) [-]
In theory, maybe. But not in practice.
Conservatives in America tend to support using government to enforce "traditional values", usually in accordance with Biblical morality. Opposition to gay marriage and adoption on moral grounds, support for strong anti-drug laws, anti-gambling laws, etc, sometimes even opposition to non-Christians in public office (at the state level), etc.

"Less regulations" generally is limited only to economic policies.
User avatar #10 to #4 - keiishiyama (04/09/2013) [-]
Conservatives are the ones interfering with matters like gay marriage and abortion. Libertarians, not to promote them, are the ones who advocate the most free system into which one can enter; they want as little government interference as possible EVERYWHERE.
User avatar #34 to #10 - wafflecopper (04/10/2013) [-]
yeah but Liberals are the ones that force affirmative action, and wish to ignore the pledge of allegiance so as not to offend

There is a saying that goes as such, conservatives wish to change how you act, Liberals wish to change how you think

also if this stupidly enough makes any difference to anyone, I'm not a republican, a democrat, or a libertarian
User avatar #91 to #34 - useroftheLOLZ (04/10/2013) [-]
You do know that there is a difference between liberals and libertarians?

And besides, both sides of the spectrum are pants on head retarded, better to be a moderate than a zealot.

Excuse me, but does liberal in US, mean the complete opposite of what liberal means in Europe?
#177 to #157 - anon (04/10/2013) [-]
For some reason, Europe and the US had the same definition of liberal and conservative for a while, but we mixed them up right about when the Great Depression hit. Surprisingly few people ever question it.
User avatar #184 to #177 - wutangkillabee (04/10/2013) [-]
Maybe it is because socialism is more common in Europe, i guess?
User avatar #195 to #184 - fosforgasxiii (04/10/2013) [-]
Most European countries have a strong socialdemocratic party together with one or two rightwing parties, mostly a conservative liberal party and sometimes a progressive liberal party and/or a christiandemocratic party.
User avatar #200 to #195 - wutangkillabee (04/10/2013) [-]

all i can say is conservatives dont want to run your personal life. they vote for small government for a reason....
#124 to #120 - lordofo (04/10/2013) [-]
incorrect. What conservatives mean by small governemnt is small taxes. However, the conservertives love to meddle with your life. Abortion laws, "national-security' and anti gay laws are just a a few areas were conservatives love to meddle.
User avatar #130 to #124 - profflippystix (04/10/2013) [-]
im conservative, always go to the local tea party events. none of us believe in the anit gay laws and the abortion laws are cut to the point. send out contraception to all the teens and young mothers. provide it. birth control and condoms. its more of a moral thing, i cant stand abortion, thats a person like me and you. imagine that guy standing right there. oh you cant because he was aborted. or imagine you best friend never existed because well he was aborted. and our view on the pro gay laws are "were not the ones that have to face god in the end because of it. god gave us free will and not any one of us will get punished for anothers sins". we dont care if its enacted. thats everyone else beliefs. national security was pushed for the 9/11 attacks, which right after it happened everyone cried for war. when we went to war it was "stupid, and for oil" if we were there for oil why the hell isnt our gas prices 1.49 a gallon like when bush was in office?
User avatar #134 to #130 - welfarekid (04/10/2013) [-]
I gotcha, but my views are,
Abortion? I don't like it, I don't agree, but if it is what will make you happy, then it is your decision.
Drugs? **** yeah, Drugs.
gays? The more the merrier, Diversity bitches.
User avatar #135 to #134 - profflippystix (04/10/2013) [-]
exactly. i said this before but someone pissed on me and stared caps locking "how dare you call me a sinner blah blah blah". if you dont believe in my religon than the word "sin" means nothing to you. its a dead insult. its like someone saying they did your mom or someone saying **** you to your face. all overused dead insults
User avatar #136 to #135 - welfarekid (04/10/2013) [-]
Meh, I'm pretty accepting of anyone's views, even if they are ******* out there as **** . I may debate with them, but it's not to challenge them, but really to see the extend of their faith/belief.
User avatar #203 to #136 - profflippystix (04/10/2013) [-]
i like you billy, people find out im religous and after that all i hear is how its fake and how it can be proven wrong. if i had physical proof religon was real i wouldnt shove it in anyones face. or constantly remind them how wrong they were. let people believe what they believe.
#221 to #130 - nightstar (04/18/2013) [-]
If you are conservative, why is it okay to use tax money to pay for birth control for private citizens? Shouldn't they pay for it themselves?

and after 9/11 we went to war in Afghanistan and you are correct, most supported it. A total of three years later we went into Iraq, but many people were against that as there was no solid proof of WMD or a tie to any terrorist organization.
User avatar #222 to #221 - profflippystix (04/19/2013) [-]
conservatives dont want to do that, thats obama care???

The only thing I don't like about Libertarians is how they plan to deal with raising money for federal and state governments. They want to get rid of taxes all together and say that people will pay for the things they want. It's a good idea at it's heart, but men aren't angels.
