Meacham: We're a Conservative Country | Newsweek Politics: Campaign 2008 | Newsweek.comSo are we a centrist country, or a right-of-center one? I think the latter, because the mean to which most Americans revert tends to be more conservative than liberal. . . . nearly twice as many people call themselves conservatives as liberals (40 percent to 20 percent), and Republicans have dominated presidential politics—in many ways the most personal, visceral vote we cast—for 40 years. Since 1968, Democrats have won only three of 10 general elections (1976, 1992 and 1996). . . .
I think I heard before that the survey originally came from Rasmussen, but I'm not 100% sure.
I dont know what your second paragraph means. But I am really tired, I've been studying approaches, VOR/NDB/ILS, holds, DME arcs and instruments till my eyes bleed, so if you have time to clarify I will gladly respond
In reference to the historical political party and as defined by Merriam-Webster, someone favoring a strong centralized national government.
In contemporary usage, as articulated by President Bush's New Federalism, federalists advocate the principle of greater regional autonomy within the United States—usually by allowing individual states to set their own agendas and determine the handling of issues, rather than trying to impose a nationally uniform solution.
The above is the way I was using the word federalist.In reference to the historical political party and as defined by Merriam-Webster, someone favoring a strong centralized national government.
Thats a rather odd definition, "New Federalism", this is the first I've heard of such a thing. Sound like "real americans" too me.In contemporary usage, as articulated by President Bush's New Federalism, federalists advocate the principle of greater regional autonomy within the United States—usually by allowing individual states to set their own agendas and determine the handling of issues, rather than trying to impose a nationally uniform solution.
Well sculpted but also possessing rather selective vision on his behalf... I'm not sure where i've said I've uncritcally accepted anything, nor have I seen any proof to the contrary about obama's recordings. How do you reparse what is in audio from 5 years ago?
The fact that I dislike obama's stated economic policies and distrust his associations does not be default make me a far-righter. I don't believe in religious doctrine, believe in women's choice on abortions, equal rights for gay couples, etc. I'm a registered independent, and have voted for both democrats and republicans.
So as with Obama's own speeches although what BodyWizard wrote has some elegance, it doesn't mean it has any substance

To put it another way: *ALL* evidence I've submitted regarding the disconnect between the conservative mainstream over the last 50 years and the neo-con plutocratic global adventurism of today has been discounted, dismissed, ignored - even attacked. If you want me (or anyone) to provide evidence to satisfy you as to the bona-fides of your political/economic opponents, I suggest you (collectively) show some respect for the evidence already presented.
Alternatively, you could make an effort to prove YOUR position on the matter...but please, post something besides Malkin, Prager & co. - opinion is only evidence of opinion. With respect.
we're looking for a single substantiative ACTION that shows bipartisanship on his behalf. considering he has based this campaign on 'republicans are evil, their ideas are all wrong, and they alone caused the financial crisis'

Show me some where on his voting record where he didn't vote extreme left. Its not a tall order. He says he will unite the parties. Does he expect the Republican Party to join him on the extreme left? To unite the parties you would have to have a centrist platform. Where is it?
