Compassionate(?) Conservative

I'd like to nominate Rep. Jim Gibbons (R-Nev) for Conservative of the Year. Rep. Gibbons has gone above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that divisiveness and hatred remain a part of our great nation.

Ha ha ha ha! Damn, that is funny stuff.

Unfortunately Rep. Gibbons doesn't appear to understand. It was not blind fealty that made this country what it is. If our founding fathers had exhibited the unquestioning loyalty that Rep. Gibbons does, we would still be an English settlement ruled by a foriegn monarch. It was the liberal spirit that spawned this country and it will be the liberal spirit that sustains it.

Too many times I have heard that liberals "hate America." Nothing could be further from the truth. If we truly hated America we wouldn't be fighting so hard for what we thought was right. We'd sit back and allow things like bigotry, poverty, violence, corruption, and hatred to remain. We'd allow the government to ammend the constitution so that it condoned discrimination based upon sexual preference. We'd silently watch as the wealthy received tax breaks and the poor are forced to absorb more of the tax burden. We'd look the other way while our military invaded other countries that posed no tangible threat to our safety. We'd keep our mouths shut as our elected officials tried to figure out ways to justify torture. But we don't. And we never will. We may not always win, but we will always stand up for what's right.

So, dear reader, the true question isn't "why do liberals hate America," but "why do conservatives hate liberal Americans?" That is something I'd like to know.
