    So Let's Hear it Conservatives

    I want you all to tell me what your ideal for our country is. Constitutionalism? How so? Which regulations should be ended: don; say all of them., Say which ones and why. Is their religion in government?

    Those are just some things off the top of my head, but I want you to tell me what it is that you want to see this country be. Incorporate your values into it.

    Go -
    Make everything from toy guns that spark, to flesh-colored Christs that glow in the dark. Itís easy to see without looking too far, that not much is really sacred.

    So the party that refuses to discuss Biden and his policies is demanding the evil conservatives do the sort of thing the democrats are afraid to do.

    I like this.

    Go -
    To answer your last question: Is there religion in government? Of course, as laid out in the First Amendment in which Congress shall make no laws regarding the establishment of religion. That does not mean freedom from religion where religion shall not be discussed in public. It means that the Federal Government does not attempt to establish any religion as the dominant religion. George Washington stated: "It is impossible to govern the world without God and the Bible. Of all the dispositions and habits that lead to political prosperity, our religion and morality are the indispensable supporters. Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that our national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle."
    I would simply restate the position taken by Sean Hannity stating Conservatism was a return to the principles of the Constitution, the Federal Government should always defer to the several states for anything other than specifically listed in the Constitution. As far as the "regulations" I would have to look at each of the 44 million regulations currently on the books. My first reaction to that question is ALL OF THEM and then re institute those that would truly help all Americans. I would certainly repeal the income tax and institute a national sales tax as outlined by Neal Boortz in his book "The Fair Tax"

    Most federal regulations have been passed in order to help a specific industry or group.

    I realize a socialist dictator such as yourself would not understand a single word I have written. That is truly your loss.

    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    I see the only peaceful solution is for the UNITED states to no longer be UNITED. We are not now anyway.

    Balkanization is the best and most peaceful solution.

    ******************************************

    Now for my own personal input as to how.

    The old Confederacy and the western states should form their own country.

    California, Oregon, and Washington should form a republic of their own.

    New York, NJ, PA, and a few others can decide who they want to unite with or make another country of their own.

    New England might have a bust up too because Maine and VT, NH are nothing like MA, RI, and CT.

    TEXAS of course will be its own independent republic again, but this time, stay that way.

    ************************************************

    We are no longer UNITED states.

    Our reps can never agree on anything and every decision is straight down party lines.

    When a new Prez takes over, they wind up writing zillions of executive orders to cancel out the last set of EO's the last guy did.

    Legislation is now done through Executive orders and Supreme Court decisions as the legislature is so embroiled in hatred for the other side, they are acting like children.

    YES...it is time to break this country up and divide it along tribal lines. In reality it already is, so why not make it official.

    In a way, politically, all conservatives need do is play the opposition to whatever Biden and the Democrats do if and when they figure out what that is.
