why don't you support legalizing marijuana? why don't you support permaculture? why don't you support autonomous building? why can't you see the triple bottom line? why can't you understand preventative care reduces healthcare costs and needs? why can't you see a high speed public transportation grid and major investment into our technological and our general infrastructure as well as the elimination of monopolistic companies would be an economic boom like none anyone alive has ever witnessed?

Perhaps they don't understand anarchists.

I think there are probably a lot of conservatives in this country who do support those things.

They just don't show up on the forum?

I've yet to meet one in real life, buy hey, I'm only 60.

I support some of that stuff - legalization of mari, marriage equality, ending wars overseas (repubs should be on board with this, as it is a major expense)....one thing i've never understood is how republicans think that government is this all-terrible thing, but then turn around and are more than happy to let the government through the military rule other countries with no problem.

Don't even know if you can consider me republican though...as im socially liberal and fiscally conservative. I was registered as republican, mainly in the hope that the repubs would actually pick someone in the primaries that would make a difference....was severly disappointed though and couldn't find it in myself to vote for Romney.

Yet you argue from a decidedly "right wing" point of view.

You should eschew online political tests of who you are, or at least take them with a large grain of salt.

I took the same test and came out as a "socially liberal, fiscal conservative" too.. ..yet there is little conservative about me.

What do you base your assumptions on? Present facts or figures if you can instead of just making a comment you think people may agree with.

[-] 1 points by quantumystic (1710) from Memphis, TN 1 year ago

i base my assumptions on the empirical observations i have made. largely based on direct communication, internet postings, talking points, blog posts, news paper articles, and consumer trends in my region ( i live in a very red state). i don't need to present facts or figures on an established fact. that fact being conservatives do not support this movement. i don't see any conservatives clamoring for 40 million organic farmers or moving a way from fossil fuels. face it you are really grasping at logic and fallacy straws here.
