I want to know who, especially "conservative" republicans, voted to raise my taxes by a postage stamp per day (according to Obama) yesterday.
Is there a website where you can see how everyone voted on a bill?3 AnswersOther - Politics & Government1 decade ago
Get rid of these morons!!!
John Ensign ( I voted for him!) GRRRRR
We need a revolution! Conservative values are RIGHT!, but our party is full of people who don't practice them, including a bunch I see on FoxNews....Newt Gingrich, Dick Morris...

This party needs a revolution...throw the bums out!
It is okay to be the party of personal responsibility, but that is what we have to be......these bums have to go or we are finished!
We cannot excuse the behavior we preach against!
John Ensign, Sanford (Samford, whatever his name is)4 AnswersElections1 decade ago
or are they already doing it and it just hasn't hit the news yet?
Is it really too much to ask for our leaders to PRACTICE the values they PREACH?
Dems keep replying that "sex doesn't matter" "everybody is human", etc. I don't cheat on my wife! I know there are others like me. I'M HUMAN!
Being a party that doesn't preach good values doesn't make it okay to have bad values (Ted Kennedy, Bill Clinton, John Edwards, Barney Frank...etc!)
I've had it. I'm never voting again until a candidate excites me.
The last two candidates I can actually remember thinking highly of were.....ready?.....George W. Bush and John Ensign!
GW Bush...good person...never met a spending bill he didnt like. Though he did keep us safe ( should not have spent like he did..holy crap)
John Ensign......I don't really have to say anything here, do I?
My grandfather didn't fight WWII for my right to vote for the clowns we are apparently holding up right now.
This party needs a revolution--it is NOT conservative right now!3 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago
Yes, I know there is a democrat name (or two) for every one of these creeps on our side that can't seem to practice what they preach and I know the lines they use are "it's just sex" and "it doesn't affect their job" and "you're taking part in the politics of personal destruction",
I WANT to be a member of the party of personal responsibility. I do not want to point to imperfections on the other side to justify these idiots on mine--I voted for John Ensign!....Grrrrr.
Is anyone else out there thinking they are going to quit voting until both of these parties shape up?

What I mean is, is whaling illegal? I understand animal rights activists (although it's pretty tough to live a life void of all products created at the demise of animals) but does this bunch of people run any risk of being arrested for piracy, or are they trying to enforce some law that prohibits whaling?
I went to the site on Animal Planet, but I'm not sure the information there is all up to par....beings how that's the channel sponsering the show.3 AnswersOther - Society & Culture1 decade ago

The population/voting maps terrify me as a conservative. I believe in small government, little regulation, low taxes, a free market, and an extremely strong military.....traditional conservative values. I don't seen anyone in our party who has the ability (or desire) to articulate these things to people and it seems that the population centers of this country would rather vote for taxes to support everything that discourages self reliance.
I fear the cities will decide everything for us country folk before long.6 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago
I'm a die hard conservative, but I see NO leaders in my party. All I see are big spending democrats who call themselves republicans. For some reason I'm not unhappy now that it's all over, but I'm not sure why.
I believe my taxes will go up (I don't care what he says), and I think they're too high already.
I believe we're going to move toward socialized health care, and I'm expecting my third child.
I believe we will be more vulnerable to attack as a country, and I have cousins in the armed forces.
I believe he will work to restrict my gun rights, and I love shooting.
But for some reason, I'm pretty upbeat.....and I have no idea why. Is his soaring rhetoric just retarding my brain, or is there some reason I should not be unhappy as a conservative?

If McCain does pick Sarah Palin, as all the news outlets seem to think will happen, how does Sen. John McCain expect his supporters to continue to attack his opponent for his inexperience? A Biden/Obama ticket might have just as much experience as a Palin/McCain ticket.

My vote has moved (maybe temporarily) from "none of the above" to "McCain" tonight.2 AnswersOther - Politics & Government1 decade ago
It did mine (check all of my past answers, if you don't believe me). I was going to write in a candidate for this next election.
I could not be swayed to Obama, full disclosure, but I was not going to vote for McCain this time either. However, I was moved by his statements tonight and I now think I will vote McCain.
I'm wondering if there are very many people out there like me who are watching this crap right now though.....I actually wrote the questions out and tried to grade each candidates answers. I'm such a geek.
anyway....anyone else awed by McCain, or just me?28 AnswersElections1 decade ago
Can you believe Exxon paid more in taxes than the entire lowest half of wage earners in our country?
Exxon paid nearly 30 Billion dollars in taxes last year. The bottom half of wage earners paid about 27 Billion. One corporation paid as much as 65,000,000 people combined.
How much more should they pay? (Exxon, I mean)6 AnswersGovernment1 decade ago
