To be conservative requires no brains whatsoever.  Cabbages, cows and conifers are conservatives, and are so stupid they don't even know it. All that is basically required is acceptance of what exists .

-  Colin Welch (1924-1997) British journalist.

I'm an Ex-Conservative.  You can call me XCon.  I am no longer a Republican because that party is now under the control of some very shady, very unAmerican characters.  Fiscal responsibility only when it works for them, these far, far, far right ultra fanantical haters.  And "NO!"to big governement unless it greases their political coffers - is no way to be the Republican party of Barry Goldwater.

Warmongering and screwing with the simplicity and genius of our Constitution, mixed with intrusion into our personal lives and a fear of individual liberty, is no party I want any part of!  So I'm tired of bitching and moaning and harping on my family and friends and am thinking I need to express these things and see if there are others who feel the same.   "Confession is good for the soul," or so the saying goes.

If you disagree, fine, but get ready to defend yourself and your clinging to failed politix.  Grow some cajones and help us take back our party!  If you agree, I hope you will share your feelings and experiences. 

I swore I could never vote for a Clinton and when this unknown Obama came along I said "No F'n Way" but I ended up voting for him and I'm glad I did.   John McCain is a sad shadow of who he once was and when he tried that Palin-Crap, well that did it.  OVER.  End of the GOP.   Let's remember... and begin again.

Thanks for reading.  I've never blogged before, so welcome to my learning experience.  And, thanks to all the bloggers and sites that inspire and feed me!
