Re: To anybody!
bpitter2007: A real conservative is someone who believes in cutting government spending to the bone.  A man or woman who believes in virtually privatizing just about everything.  This includes defense spending.  A real conservative never would've invented a Department of Homeland Security.  A real conservative doesn't believe in tapping telephone lines of people without first obtaining search warrants.  A real conservative believes in ''one strike and you're out'' when it comes to people committing felonious crimes.  A real conservative believes in truly enforcing the borders; eliminating illegal immigration and significantly reducing legal immigration.  A foreign policy that protects us from invaders and terrorists but doesn't mean that we should police the world or promote democracy throughout it.  There are other examples that I could mention but to me, this is what it means to be a real conservative.

To anybody!
I didn't mean to say "all Republicans", I meant to say the Republicans I hear on the TV only.

To anybody!

Can someone please give me a definition of a real Conservative. I seem to be split in understanding the difference between all the Republicans. What is Guiliani? Is he not a Conservative? What is Romney? And what is Huckabee is they are not Conservatives? By the way, I'm a Democrat and it seems that all the Republicans consider Dems left-wing. I don't understand how they want to split up the two parties into left, right, middle. What difference does it make overall?

Re: Re: There was a movie......
RedStatesMan: Paul is the most conservative of the presidential candidates.  He is a strict constitutionalist.  Hunter and Tancredo are more conservative than the top-tier Republican presidential hopefuls.  Isn't it interesting that the top-tier Republican candidates aren't the ones who are the most conservative?  What ever happened to the true conservative movement in the Republican Party?  Or is ''neo-conservatism'' really ''conservatism?''

Re:
Ex Turpi: Huckabee probably made the remark because he is afraid of AIDS spreading.  Maybe at the time, he didn't know that AIDS can't be spread through casual contact.  As a former Baptist minister, he knows that the Bible states that homosexuality is immoral behavior.

Re:
sam444: He wants to become president of the United States.  That is the overriding reason why these people are running for the office.  Each candidate believes that they're the best candidate to lead this great nation.

Re: There was a movie......
Corbin: Robert Novak recently wrote an op-ed piece stating that Huckabee isn't a ''real conservative.''

In my rereading of Mr. Huckabee's comments of yesterday, he seems NOT to have shied away from his earlier stated position. I apologise for my misstatement.

Being  a chief political executive must be tough. No matter what decisions one makes some are likely to be wrong. Note Mayor Giuiliani and his Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik. Here, I am NOT defending Hucakabee nor Giuiliani; just to say, politicians are frail beings too.

To me, the quarantine of Aids patients  says more about his judgement and motivation. I cannot fathom what led him to make such a remark. Yet in an interview yesterday, he intimated he would not have  made that statement, if the known facts then were the facts as known today.

There was a movie......
that I believe was Andy Griffith's first one....called "A Face in the Crowd" about a megalomaniac who was revealed when someone turned on a microphone and revealed the character's off air comments.........statement about what he thought of the common people......

That's how I look at Huckabee......people are going to start turning on the mics and he will be exposed for the Conservative he's not.......
