Who else is in favor of renaming "Conservatism" to "Sloganism"?
How does one sum up the Republican Party from Reagan to today?

Here's how...

"LIBERAL MEDIA! LIBERAL MEDIA! LIBERAL MEDIA!"

"BILL CLINTON! BILL CLINTON! BILL CLINTON!"

"TAX CUTS! TAX CUTS! TAX CUTS!"

"TERRORISM! TERRORISM! TERRORISM!"

"FLIP FLOPPER! FLIP FLOPPER! FLIP FLOPPER!"

"LIBERAL DEMOCRATS! LIBERAL DEMOCRATS! LIBERAL DEMOCRATS!"

"SECRET MUSLIM! SECRET MUSLIM! SECRET MUSLIM!

"SOCIALISM! SOCIALISM! SOCIALISM!"

1. You're confusing actual conservatism with the beliefs of the current right-wing nuts.
(and left-wing nuts, too, for that matter)

Extremism is rarely a good thing, but the current right-wing extremists aren't "conservatives".

4. actually it is a Cult, a psychotic narcissistic personality cult.
ReThuglicans are a psychotic narcissistic ideological cult that believe if they destroy the government
a Magical Utopia will rise out of the ashes.. i am serious, it is typical of Narcissistic cults.. they are one

the GOP is a Cult, an Ideological Cult, its members are brainwashed to the degree that their brains are physically altered, with diminished perceptual capasities... the frightening thing is that they are this organized and functional without a Psychotic Narcissistic Leader. Bu$h41/43 were Psychotic Narcissist's but not leaders. Reagan was a leader but not a Psychotic Narcissistic.. all the Psychotic death and destruction in those admin in Iraq, South/central America was done by Poppy Bu$h, Rumsfeld, Negroponte, Oli North..etc. God wouldn't be able to help anyone on this earth if they do find a Psychotic Narcissistic leader. Jim Jones, Manson were Puppies to what is really possible from those rat bastards.

5. It's no secret that they're the party of the "sound byte"
I swear when interviewed they use their jingoistic BS every chance they can.

6. I like Sloganists. Has a nice ring to it.
We should get every progressive pundit to use the term with the same dripping disdain with which the word Liberal comes off the lips of the right.
