--A New York Conservative Party resolution passed last week

They stopped being conservatives and became neo-cons about 30 years ago... they should just rename themselves the Puritan Party and have done with it.

I think anyone who supports their government infringing upon a person's freedom has seriously lost the meaning of the word, "Conservative." Someone, please, remind them.

what about "for life" it seems that they're forgetting something.

We need to stop calling them conservatives. There is nothing conservative about wanting to expand the government's reach into our private lives.

We should be calling them "social prohibitionists". Think about it.

Be it resolved that any elected official or potential candidate (for ANY office, whether on the local, county, state or federal level) who supports marriage as defined between one man and one woman ONLY, will get neither supporting campaign funds nor a vote from me, a gay, registered Independent who votes in every election at my polling place in the State of New York.

SO nice to see someone make the essential distinction between conservatives and neo-conservatives!

Try "Neo-conservatism: The Autobiography of an Idea," by Irving Kristol, for a taste of neo-con.
