    On a previous thread (Maybe she'll run in 2012) You stated "I am trying to understand Conservatism, what am I missing?"

    If you are really interested, here is a book to read "Define Conservatism" by Johathan Krohn

    More info and how to get this book is available at above web site.

    Great Read!


    BTW - The author is 14 years old - He really "gets it" and articulates it well.

    That is still 13 1/2 years more intellectually advanced than Trappy.

    Give ole Trappy a chance. He's going to be a conservative, eventually. I was once idealistic and bought the liberal drivel of the academe. He's coming around. Let him explore the truth about the honesty that is conservatism.

    Bluzman, Why do you think it is okay to make a personal attack on Trappy?

    At the bottom of this page it says, "Threads containing offensive posts or personal attacks may be deleted. Remember the use of this site is a privilege not a right."

    Did you fail to read this little bit of information?

    Hauxfan!

    If Trappy is really serious about wanting to understand Conservatism and really has an open mind, I suggest to him he reads a new book called "LIBERTY AND TYRANNY", written by Constitutional attorney Mark Levin.

    Buy it, or get it at the library.

    "Liberty And Tyranny",is a fantastic book, but for someone that is trying to get a definition of what a Conservative is, I would recommend reading "Define Conservatism" first.

    If you are not a liberal when you're 20 you don't have a heart.

    If you are not a conservative when you're 30 you don't have a brain.

    Give the kid a chance.


    As my nanny used to say, "Dem kids' brains is too smooth, dey ain't got no walnut curls, yet."

    Trappy won't agree with anyone until he is responsible for his actions and has to earn his money to pay his bills. It's surprising how their attitude changes when all that happens. Reality really bites

    Simple

    Conservative When you have $10.00 and spend $10.00 or less.

    Liberal When your neighbor has $10.00 and you spend his $10.00 and promise to spend his next check after you take your fees out for managing his money.

    I heard another great Churchill quote the other day, something like:
    "Democrocy is the worst form of government, except all the others."

    Well this is pleasant. I was sure that this was going to be some thread about how stupid I am, or something along those lines. Yeah of course I'm an idiot, I'm a 17 year old kid. Anyways, thanks for the pleasant surprise, I'll look into this. As for you guys, I invite you to read a book defining what liberalism truly is, not the stereotypical crap that is pulled out by almost everyone who is blindly against it. Then, after you somewhat understand the true ideals of liberalism, read the Declaration to discover what it truly means to be an American and you will understand how important liberals, as well as conservatives really are. I believe that the Declaration is more of an explanation of what America truly is, whereas the Constitution only outlines how it shall be run. Think about it.

    Good grief, trippy, why did you have to prove bluzman98 right with the recitation of typical liberal claptrap?

    How many more years is this poster going to "remain" 17?


    You guys never get it, do you? You're being massively, massively TROLLED. This kid has been 17 for going on 3 years now, and hasn't aged a day the whole time he's been here.


    Get a clue guys.

    buzz, no I haven't. You clearly haven't been keeping up very well then. Maybe this year has been dragged on pretty long for you? Regardless, I turn 18 in September, which means I can officially win the lottery!

    That thread must not have offended too many people, including the offendee, because it is still on there. Some people crave attention good or bad.
