Iraq= the death of the Conservative movement???

Iraq has suck all of the energy and wind out of the party and this president. Bush will not be remembered for anything else other than the "war".

In year seven, Bush finds the veto pen that was jammed up his a$$.

The Conservative movement has gone backwards in the last seven years. We lost ground.......and by spliting the party.....in the next election.......we will loose more ground (because this party wants Mr Amnesty or Mr Assault weapons Ban).....all for Iraq..........look in the mirror boys....
was it worth it????
Will Iraq return to us what was lost to this party????
To the conservative movement????

The rebirth of the conservative movement?

Or just a disaster that will put a Dem in the White House for the next 12 years until everything's gone to hell...... I am not sure which yet.

"What does conservatism today stand for? It stands for war. It stands for power. It stands for spying, jailing without trial, torture, counterfeiting without limit, and lying from morning to night."

I think Iraq was the final nail in the coffin

I used to be a diehard Conservative Republican, and I am a Christian. This is my take.

I think the conservative wing of the Republican party has died, and it was helped along by the "moral majority" movement of the 70's which convinced many Christians that the government had to legislate morality and stop people from sinning. So the worship of government by "social conservatives" began.

The next thing that killed the Republicans was the propaganda manipulation of Faux News.

But the thing that really dealt a death blow to small government Republicans was September 11.

9/11 brought out the worst fear in people - the fear that they are not safe, and helped by Fox News, they began to think that only the government could protect them. It made them believe that we would be at war with "terror" forever.

A great book on this is "Betrayal of the American Right," by Murray Rothbard.

It's really sad, but it makes me angry at the same time because they've betrayed the Conservatives. Might as well be one party, Republicrat.
