    ..

    Well, conservative Republicans have stood by and allowed their party to be overtaken by the Neo-cons and the Neo-cons use/manipulate the distorted fundamentalists to further their own cause. The men at the helm making the Neo-con decisions use religion to further their own ends.

    I can forsee the Dems doing the same thing with other issues, like a distorted version of Environmentalism.

    Very possible. I hope Democrats are smarter than that.

    I kinda feel sorry for Conservatives now. That is a weird change in mood.

    The Democrats are not smarter than that, unfortunately. It's already happening.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    It's one of the problems with a congressional system that has no proportional representation. People don't vote for third parties because they are afraid of splitting the vote, leading to an opposition win.

    Well if that is the case, at least it is a helluva lot less Machiavellian than the corruption of Christianity that has infiltrated conservatism.

    Well...that is assuming that Jesus doesn't come back.

    Apparently most people agree, they enjoy being manipulated.

    Don't forget the one where Hillary claimed to be named after Sir Edmund Hillary, the guy who climbed Everest in 1953. She was born in 1947. He was a beekeeper that that time.

    Eventually, when it was noticed that Hillary was born six years before the ascent of Everest, Clinton aides tried assuring skeptics that her parents had seen a press interview with Sir Edmund in his beekeeping days, Mr. and Mrs. Rodham apparently being the only Illinois subscribers to The New Zealand Apiarist. Then, in the early days of her presidential campaign, Senator Clinton quietly withdrew the story, by which time the damage was done. Edmund Hillary passed away a couple of months back, and, as I recall, the New York Times headline read: "New Zealander For Whom Senator Clinton Named Dies; Also First Man To Climb Everest. Senator Clinton Was At The Summit To Greet Him, After Landing Under Heavy Sniper Fire From The Abominable Snowman."
