NEW YORK - Activists planning to demonstrate against the upcoming GOP convention should be on the lookout for young conservatives gearing up to protest the protesters.

"To show that there is a group of people out there, there are Republicans that will protest them right back," said Tom Paladino, who leads the New York chapter of the newly formed Protest Warriors.

"We are the right-wing freedom fighters — we are out there and are just as animated as the protesters can be," said member Jason Sager, of Brooklyn.

Protest Warriors, which claims about 3,000 members nationwide, expects about 200 in New York for the four-day convention, which begins Aug. 30 and is expected to draw tens of thousands of opponents of President Bush.

So, they are now Protesting PROTESTING.

Somebody needs a hobby...

I have a better idea. Let's move to Canada! Where the people don't bitch, and moan, and whine about every single thing, and think before they react.

God damn...I can't wait until I turn 21...Then I will move! Be gone with the USA!

I am not proud to be American. I am not proud to be in a country that has rampant republicans slithering all over the country, and pissing on the constitution and the advancement of society...As I say:

"If we all went by tradition, there would be no inventions."

The human race would still be living in caves if Conservatives had their way...They also halt scientific advancement, such as stem-cell research, and disaprove of Darwin's Theory of Evolution being taught in our schools...Conservatives (Read: Religious Extremists) should be taken into the street and shot. Change is GOOD, you're just too afraid to handle it.

I fucking hate America...If ANY governmental system can be abused like this, then it should be abolished. We have too many bullshit laws, the media is a miserable failure, and some people believe ANYTHING we hear on the TV, ESPECIALLY when it comes to violent movies and video games. They cause kids to kill? The creators of Doom are making "Killing Machines?" Please. John Romero (Cocreator of Doom and Quake) doesn't even know how to fire a gun in real life. Go read the studies. They relieve more stress than other forms of entertainment, and if psychologists don't say they kill, then clearly they don't. People here act like they are experts on a topic when they don't know even the smallest bit of info on it...

I'm just venting...This shit has been held in for a while...

Feel free to contradict me Morelos, I need a viewpoint change...I'm getting more and more pissed off every day...

eh.. take out the gunshot stuff and be more careful with words like "conservative" and "republican."

try to be more specific about the groups of idiots you target. i know plenty of intelligent and educated members of both 'conservative' and 'republican' groups.

the fucked up paradox is the fact that everyone's entitled to their own opinion; it's the american way. the minute we start telling people, "you can't hold the belief that your religion is right and everyone else's is wrong," we are taking away freedoms.

welcome to the wonderful world of the balancing act.

we call it "politics" but it's just a fancy word for "bullshit."

but you don't need a viewpoint change. the attitude adjustment will come with age and exposure. i personally feel the direction of your views to be generally good.

Well, considering that I am a conservative AND a republican, I am going to disagree with you about the evil slithering part... BUT I do agree about your opinions on censorship. People try to censor things that they do not understand. My advice to you is... If you really do hate America that much, then absolutely, move to Canada. Then you cannot be accused of being a hypocrite. If you are just blowing off steam, perhaps you can think of ways too make America better. Everybody gets pissed off and frustrated with the system... you just have to do something about it.

Thank you for complimenting me on my views...

I know there are plenty of smart conservatives...hell...my dad's friend is one...and he's a structural engineer!


I know this attitude is somewhat immature, but I can't seem to get why people don't want things to change. The main reason I want to move is that I despise the governmental system here in the US...I have no trust for it whatsoever. I wouldn't even trust Canada's too much, but I would definitely trust it more than one where the people have NO say in things. It's like letting a bunch of people you don't even know decide what happens. True, the populace is stupid everywhere, but I feel in America it's extremely bad. This is the only system that would ever work here, because people here just react and never think. Anyone here ever seen Bowling for Columbine?

Also, G.I. Jet, you are unlike most of the conservatives that I know...You really seem to realize that we have the freedom to think whatever we want here, and that protesting the war is not Anti-American. I feel it is more patriotic to not support the war, as to support it. Why? That is what America stands for...freedom of speech! Now if only our media would stop being so greedy and stop failing to inform the public of what goes on, especially to this gargantuan scale.

We could solve the problem, but I feel that there is a reluctance to change laws and and practices here in America (e.g. Marijuana, and the penal system), because the government says "It works, so it must be good enough." It's that kind of conservative attitude. Therefore, even when we have liberals in office, we will never have complete power due to the total lack of time, energy, and spirit that our government can give to these issues.

I also don't like the remarks.. Morelos is right... (on this... :)).. I don't like censorship either.. but I believe we need something to protect children from irresponsible people that wanna put porno in every mailbox and on during Saturday morning cartoons... I am a conservative .. but I don't consider myself to be "Republican" cause labels like that tend to clump you into a certian group that you may not agree with..
I am not religious.. I am an apethetic agnostic... I don't mind religion if it is used to make wise decisions that I don't feel I need religion to make.. some people need the crutch.. I don't care if a "bazooka-Joe" bubblegum wrapper makes someone make a wise decision... why would I care if someone leads their life in a good manner and uses the Bible/ Koran/ teachings of Budda.. or whatever to make a good life... just don't come to me and tell me I NEED to be your religion .. don't preach to me.. I hate that shit....

I also like my porno... I'm not totally against abortion... which doesn't coincide with Republicans or most conservatives... I have had premarital sex and didn't care... I have cheated on my wife and didn't care.... doesn't sound too conservative does it...
but if you take my stance on most issues and you assigned them a point value I would be a solid conservative... actually I have taken some online tests and I always get labeled as a "populist conservative"

I don't like the Right-wing bible thumper wackos.. I don't like the Left-wing tree huggin wackos.... I wish that we had two moderate canidates to choose from.. what happened to the JFK(Kennedy not Kerry) dems...

change isn't always good... if it ain't broke... don't fix it...

A Good Quiz to get an idea of where you really stand... be truthful... we all know that quizes can be manipulated to get the results you want.... You have to register but it is free and you can see which canidates you are closer to politicly
EDIT go to the philosophy one or the party match one..
