"The same conservatives that post here remained silent while Bush and Cheney shredded the Constitution"
You know, Joe, that's simply not true. I opposed a lot of the Bush policies and even called and wrote my representatives to register my opposition.
I am tired of people claiming that conservatives welcomed all the Bush admin. policies. We did not.
And this was the reason many struggled with McCain. We felt he was more of the same.Comment Posted By Lily On 27.02.2009 @ 20:49

What (small government) conservatism offers is the fresh air of freedom. Freedom to choose your own path and enjoy the fruits of your own labor. Freedom to pursue happiness the way you define it.
Does the next generation want to subvert their interests to the 'good of the group'? The group is always happy to take what is yours to increase their own comfort.Comment Posted By Lily On 26.02.2009 @ 21:16
"Germany had a depression the 30’s, too, just like us. We had the New Deal, they had Nazis."
This is just silly. The rise of the Nazi's / Fascism in Germany has been directly attributed to the Treaty of Versailles, which were onerous for Germany and led to harsh economic conditions and general resentment by Germans toward the victors of WWI.

I think we should open the discussion with congress and a few of our past presidents who used their oversight and regulatory power over lending institutions to force lenders to make loans to subprime borrowers (and don't forget the activist groups like ACORN, supported by lawyers like B. Obama, who used the court system to do the same).
Yes, the lenders discovered ways to pass the risk onto others, and then moved their new ideas into the prime mortgage markets as well.
And the people - don't for get the self-indulgent people who borrowed more money than they reasonably should.
Plenty of blame to go around - but it does start with the government and their socially correct initiatives.Comment Posted By Lily On 21.02.2009 @ 14:45
"And soon neighborhoods will be filled with boarded up, repo’d homes and all will be Right with the world."
Good grief - yes, we are going through a very rough time - it will get worse before it gets better. However, the real estate market will stabilized at some point. The question is, what will have left when it does? If we give away our freedom and our liberty in hopes of preventing the (inevitable) economic pain, what have we gained?
People, stand firm to your principals. Let us not go gently into ruinous socialism.
We are going to have to change the way we approach government. Calling and writing your representatives is just not working anymore. We need to turn our attention to this problem. I know we are busy people, but it is important to make time for this - our country's future depends on it.Comment Posted By Lily On 21.02.2009 @ 10:07
I think the Obama campaign and supporters want to trump this issue up to deflect from the damage of the discovery that Obama has been attending such a divisive church for 20 years.Comment Posted By Lily On 21.03.2008 @ 09:22
