Just a few things that conservatives are wrong about

Just a few things that conservatives are wrong about and views they will later regret having

-The war in Iraq
It’s difficult for me to imagine how this war could have gone worse than the way it has. I suppose if we wait around a bit longer we’ll see. It is amazing that there are still a few people who actually think we can “win” this thing. They make the holdouts at the Masada look like quitters.

Most neo-cons desperately wanted intelligent design to be taught in American public schools. ID is dead but I’m sure that they are cooking up some crazy new counter theory. They feel it is an insult to believe that we evolved from monkeys. If it make you feel better we actually came from a lot more humble organism than the monkey.

-Gay Rights
How would you feel if you looked at an old news reel and saw your mother or father spitting on a young black girl because she had the audacity to want to go to school? That’s kind of how future generations will look upon the people who now oppose gay rights and gay marriage.

-Global Warming
The neo-cons will not get on board with global warming until they literally have to get on board to avoid drowning after the ice caps melt. I always thought that being conservative meant erring on the side of caution. If a steam roller were coming towards you would you wait for further study or would you try to get the hell out of the way?

-Socialism and Taxes
When the United States starts to make Brazil look like it has an equitable distribution of income even the most dyed-in-the-wool Republicans should start taking notice—or build bigger walls around their mansions with vats of boiling oil on top of them. Even many people in American big business understand the need to develop a national health care policy.

-The Environment
Their opposition to conservation, public transportation, alternative energy sources, reduced energy consumption, and everything else having to do with the environmental movement is nothing short of the vilest form of nihilism. To many neo-cons, conservationists are just about the worst scum on the planet. Eco-terrorists, tree-huggers, environmental whackos are a few of the names they use to describe people who are trying to make the world a better place.

If I have been seriously wrong on a major political issue I’d sure like to hear about it.
