    True, but like in most countries, every time liberalism starts a new government program, conservatives tend to oppose it until it is realized, then they conveniently forget they were against it and promote their support of it. Every day, in every country with few exceptions this tends to happen.

    Yeah, 73 years and the Republicans never had a chance to get rid of it. Everything is always the lib dems' fault.

    Do I ever. Totally Republican. That's one way to drive up stock prices. I loled just as much at Thompson's matched retirement funds.

    Nah, that's just a one letter shift from R to D.

    They're just living up to their name. Conserving government power. The law is the law and once we have a law we can't get rid of it. That would be anarchy.

    There have been people who actually reverse it though, they are rare and far between, and even harder to get into office, but they generally have huge impacts when they do.

    Exceptions so rare that it's hardly fair to call them conservatives.

    I think Newt is the only Repub. conservative of national prominence that has a clue of how to turn the federal government around on its heels. It's a shame he did not run. I am hoping McCain has enough sense to pick him as VP.

    Glad to hear someone else is hoping for Newt. If not VP, I certainly hope they have the sense to use him as a strategist in the election and give him a place in the administration. He's brilliant.

    BTW, Feebmaster, try to get rid of any entitlement program after it's been established. That's a cheap shot against the Republicans. SS is an untouchable program. Sadly, no politician so far has had the guts or capability to successfully make the necessary changes.

    You would. Gingrich isn't one of those rare exceptions.

    Cheap shot? Hardly. Your boys can't even keep from expanding entitlement programs. I certainly don't expect them to get rid of any.

    Did W sign that 4th Plank law yet?

    If Gingrich is not, who is? He is for smaller government and less taxes and has a track record to prove it. So, who is the rare exception in your opinion that has national prominence?

    I don't know. I can't think of any.

    I was just being polite when Goldwater brought it up.

    More like, many of your stupid comments. Do you have a clue what the Contract with America was about?
