  •  I don't mind conservative talk radio that (0+ / 0-)

    will engage others who don't share that point of view. The exchange helps me to understand my own views and where others are coming from.

    If I can be so bold: in one sense, we are all conservatives; we want to conserve our families, wanting them to enjoy a safe and productive live; we want to conserve our communities, to be better places to live and raise the next generation of citizens; and we want to conserve our values of work, integrity, and mutual care and respect. WE want to do that both through our own efforts as citizens and friends, and with the aid of government - which is our government, by the way - to protect the weak, to restrain the bullying strong, and to leverage the power of community to benefit everyone fairly.

    That's real conservatism, not this rightist, authoritarian, fascist crap.

    (The other side has continually tried to co-opt and devalue our nouns and adjectives; how about we co-opt and redeem theirs. After all, we're the real "conservatives" here. Ultimately, they're only the "wealth and power" party.)

    It could be made into a monster if we all pull together as a team.
