Why do liberals hurl the word neo-con around as an insult? Neo-cons are closer to Democrats in ideology than classical conservatives. Furthermore, I don't know anyone on this board who is a neo-con or espouses neo-con principles. Could it be that they don't know what words mean?


Oh, excuse me for the oversight. I should have said "Paroxysms of classical conservative rabidity". It seems one must tread lightly or risk splitting hairs.

But I must say,  when you used the term "classical conservative", I had to chortle. You make it sound almost human.

Let me ask you, what would have happened if Hitler and his madmen was able to gain enough strength to implement the "New Order" that he had in mind long term. What would happen to the entire meaning of humanity being turned into this titanic struggle between "the races".

If the Americans had not entered the war to stop both and the Japanese from implementing their plans, I really have doubted that America could have survived. As unjust as wars were, this one was one that was very necessary to fight.

I guess you're suggesting thta without FDR, Hitler would have won. I don't buy that. While he did a capable job as commander in chief, I don't think Truman or Eisenhower would have been any worse. And remember thta Truman is ultimately the one who finished the war.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was probably the closest this country has had to a fascist president.

It's funny to be called ignorant by someone whose entire rhetorical technique consists of name-calling and posting other people's cartoons.
