And Leon Trotsky, whose followers invented the idea, rather recently, that it is in any way conservative to have an interventionist foreign policy.

So Trotskyites are neo-cons? That takes the cake for most ridiculous thing I've read today.

And it's completely true.

The lack of citations in that article is telling.

Do tell me, however, what ideas in Trotskyism carried over into modern neo-conservatism?

Perhaps Irving Kristol himself is a better source.

And the idea that carries over into neoconservatism is that there needs to be permanent worldwide revolution to be accomplished by invading foreign countries.

No, I'm saying that interventionism is not and has never been the conservative position.
7155  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What % of the following support gay marriage? on: October 03, 2010, 03:07:54 pm
South Park should have a significantly larger portion of its viewers support gay marriage for the simple fact that Family Guy appears on FOX network, whose viewership is probably representative of America at large, although possibly slightly lower-income.  Family Guy probably skews slightly younger and more liberal in its audience than the network average, but not too much.  South Park appears on Comedy Central, whose viewership is much younger and more liberal than America at large, and its audience is probably younger and more liberal/libertarian still.

Let's see...Goldwater was a social liberal, Taft a foreign-policy liberal.

Obviously Helms was the most conservative.

LOLOLOLOLOL.

Both Taft and Goldwater would be now labeled as "RINOs", and probably targeted by tea party nutjobs.

Uhh . . . they're well to the right of anyone in the current Republican Senate caucus.

Is there going to be a debate between you and wormyguy?

Well, I'd certainly be up for one. Someone does actually have to conduct one though, dear Libby. Grin

I am willing to do as many debates as you want, anytime, anywhere.

Those 45 Senators who voted to filibuster this should have their jobs offshored.

Anyone who thinks this bill is a good idea should be deported.

I thought you were a libertarian?

He is a Republican.

I am not and do not plan to ever be a Republican.

Given your choice in candidates and what you said on that party thread it's an easy mistake.
I've only endorsed for Senate Libertarians, Constitutionalists, libertarian-oriented Republicans, and Republicans in races with only a Republican and a Democrat (and left-wing third parties).



My gubernatorial endorsements are all Republican except for Colorado because only economic policy matters at the state level.

A great meeting of the minds.
7167  General Discussion / History / Re: The most influental U.S. presidential loser of the 20th Century? on: October 02, 2010, 10:52:07 pm
Hoover.

How was Hoover at all influential after 1932? The Republican Party even abandoned his conservative foreign policy and adopted FDR's internationalism. Robert Taft could not once get nominated.

Hoover managed to singlehandedly ruin America, and the effects of his ruination continue to be felt today.

Seriously, if you like Mike Castle that much, why don't you marry him?

Despite O'Donnell's bogus claims, he's happily married.

And happier still, he's going to be "spending more time with his family."

Everyone in NY should vote for him, because he'd provide nonstop entertainment for at least four years.

New York isn't dumb enough to repeat California's mistake there.

Ahnuld isn't entertaining in the way Paladino is.

Indeed.  And ending Schwarzenegger's acting career wasn't entertaining at all.

And there are 4 total RINOs on every issue, except for the one that matters the most (entitlement reform), on which there are at least 25 total RINOs, so they really wouldn't.

Lieberman is hated by everybody at this point.  If he runs again, he shouldn't file to run in a primary.  Scratch that - he should even bother to file to run at all.
