Even though that isn't how it is. Conservative are for less government meaning less regulations.

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.

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.

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.

I'm a liberal and this still made me angry.

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.

those are the conservatives who have no idea what they're doing and shouldn't be breathing, let alone be involved in politics.
Not all of us republicans are the same, and neither are you democrats.

Please don't ever lump me in with the Democrats.

please don't ever lump us good republicans in with all of the other ones

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

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.

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.

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.
