Over the next week and over the next eight years, there's still much we can do to help our party regenerate itself, as we help the Obama presidency be everything it can for America."

Are you saying McCain is not a Republican?

Seems to me that your idea of "Socialism" is merely whatever is convenient to you at the time - the rest of the time your merely turn a blind eye.

That sure doesn't lend much credence to your arguments.

very well said!!

I served in this country's military.

I am voting for Obama, and I take great exception to you labeling me a traitor.

Are you a military vet?

Lastly, I think this is an awesome thread, Marines4Commonsense, thank you.

No, no, no, no. Stop the madness. McCain espouses that same socialist philosophy at this point. Just because you can put more points on Obama's board under the evil socialist column doesn't mean McCain doesn't have his own ticks.

I am sick and tired of this stupid, false logic for what makes a Republican. Fiscal conservatism, yeah lets talk about who people are voting for, have voted for and where that candidate falls in line with THAT core Republican value. Bah.

You wouldn't know socialism, or conservatism for that matter, if it bit you on the nose.

100% correct here.

For a conservative, voting for a socialist like Obama would be something like having a sexual affair with your father's wife or daughters.

Thing is, nothing will kill a thread faster than actually talking about the tenets of fiscal conservatism. You mention things like the spending side of the issue as opposed to the income side, you end up alone in an echo chamber because those espousing the 5 second sound byte handed down and obediently regurgitated suddenly run off to bash the Obama's next door neighbors second cousins uncles wife once attended a rally with Arafat threads...
