No difference. Democrats are socialists, but so are Republicans. Anyone who supports Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment compensation and the myriad of socialistic government programs is a socialist. We need True Conservatives who are not afraid to recognize this and take the steps necessary to make Americans free by abolishing all socialistic programs.
Powhattan, or one of his predecessors was educated by the Spanish and had a Spanish name given him by the Catholics. So the story goes, a priest objected to the heathen practices with women. The Powhattan dispatched the priest and the Spanish from his land. So they say.
Europe was full of refugees fleeing catholic vs protestant, Catholic vs Jews, etc etc etc The new world was appealing. Many theories about preEnglish settlements, fascinating stuff. Many english longhunters were thought to be sephardic Jews that had been passing as sassanacks or scots. Abe Lincolns family is believed by many to be such due to his unusual disease.

Which conservatives are electable? Is Huckabee electable? Is Santorum? Perry? I don’t think so. Scott Walker is electable Cruz is. Trump maybe. But if conservatives split their primary votes and dollars between candidates who will get the GOP nomination? JEB. Conservatives need to focus on one electable conservative candidate or the GOPe will force their moderate down our throat.

Yeah, but the chances are probably better than 50/50 Hillary will be America’s next president unless Conservatives unite behind One Electable Candidate.
Sick of that word "electable" -- if we all get out and vote, our candidate will be elected.
Who is electable? 0 won twice.
Are you unaware that we're in the process of choosing a candidate? As for uniting, I won't get behind another progressive Republican.

There were probably others with firearms in that theater, but who didn’t shoot back. Why?
Evidently there weren't others with firearms in that theater or they probably would have shoot back.
Maybe Robert but lefties are the epitome of sheeple and PC is so prevalent it would seem many fear risk of doing anything for which they can be ridiculed.

Suspicious that at the same time Obama said his biggest failure was he couldn’t restrict Americans’ gun rights this happens. The killer was a Southerner, an older, white male (Conservative base), and supposedly a Tea Party member. Coincidental, or something else?
There are no coincidences. When right-wingers don't get their way, they go on violent rampages. Heck they go on violent rampages even when they do get their way.
Well, given the frequency of these types of events in the US over the past decade, you’ve got to admit that coincidence is very possible.
Keep beleiving the media lies. Truth is most shooters are dems or libs--yep look it up!
All these lone shooters with no motive now that obama wants gun control....so weird...hmmm.

War is the only answer to Iran. Nuke their cities and nuclear sites, then send in the troops. Force them to accept a strong, pro-American, pro-Western dictatorship. It was a mistake to allow the overthrow of the Shah and the other mid-Eastern dictators.
Hey Robert, do you know anything about the people of Iran? They are probably more educated on Foreign Policy than you are. They are pro-West, they are against the regime that has run their country since the 70s, you want to nuke their cities and just kill a bunch of innocent people who would choose democracy over theocracy? Do some homework man
ROBERT, by what authority does the US have to do these things? Where in the US Constitution does the federal government have the authority to be an empire? How do you propose to pay for this slaughter?

Bland brought her Chicago attitude with her to Texas. Not a good idea.

America’s answer is simple – WAR. Luckily, we have a candidate – Scott Walker – who said he will be ready to attack Iran on inauguration day. That is what we need, a real man who isn’t afraid to do what is necessary to ensure the safety of America and Israel. War, death, destruction is all these crazy Muslims understand. Bomb them back to the Stone Age and it will be generations before they can even think about nuclear weapons again.

Should Americans lose their Second Amendment rights just because they are senile, or have Alzheimer’s, or have other mental defects? The Constitution doesn’t say you lose your rights if you are old or mentally incompetent. This is like what the government is trying to do with driving by seniors. Saying if they have problems or are too old (the government decides) you won’t be allowed to drive or have to take a test every year to renew your license. It’s just more government intrusion on our private lives.
I'm curious how this will affect the mentally challenged that don't collect SS or SSI?
Next thing ya know the GOV will require everyone to get "Brain Tests" to own anything.
AND how are they going to control all the DEAD VOTERS that want guns....or for that matter how many of them are still collecting SS?

They said Obama would bring Americans together. This whole ruckus would never have happened if liberals hadn’t attacked the Battle flag. I bet there’s more trouble brewing from both sides.

More persecution of Republicans while Democrats get away with murder. Sharpton owes millions in back taxes, but he isn’t going to jail and is still on TV. Josh Duggar committed a minor wrong while a child and his whole family and millions of Christian fans suffer.

War is the only way to deal with the Mad Mullahs who rule Iran. Israel will be with us, and maybe the Saudis too. If the next US president is a conservative republican, it will happen. If it’s Hillary or another pro-Muslim commie-Democrat there will be more surrenders to the Muslims, ending with the end of America as a Christian nation.

The weakness of the Obama regime is incredible. We have the strongest military in the world and they refuse to use it to benefit America and Western Civilization.
We need a Tough, Conservative president who isn’t afraid to follow in the steps of Reagan, GW Bush and Cheney to project US power on the world. A Scott Walker presidency with maybe Trump as VP would mean war with Iran to destroy their nuclear capability and install a pro-American, pro-Western government, and the invasion of Mexico to teach them not to send illegals here. Like we did with Pancho Villa.

Bibi is right. The only answer to the Iranian mullahs – and all Muslim radicals – is WAR. Bomb their research and production sites and cities with nuclear weapons. Invade, kill the radicals and force the remaining Iranians to accept a pro-Western, pro-American government – a strong, ruthless dictatorship, trying to democratize these people is futile. That should give a generation of peace. If they try anything, do it again.

I thought Carson was a conservative, now I know better.
He’s independent… and if you read his books he's conservative on some topics, and leans liberal on others.
He’s also mouthing the same things Rand Paul has been saying the last few weeks… and the majority of the presidential contenders.
Guess crosses are also offensive… Lots of memorials have those, they’ll have to go…
Exactly what did he say in this article to make you think he is not a conservative?
He is conservative but he's also black.
He believes in the rights of local municipalities to make these decisions for themselves. You don't?

I read a report that a Texas Ranger said he saw railroad boxcars fitted with handcuffs and ankle restraints that were part of Jade Helm. I wonder who they are planning on using them on.
In the 1800s, the Democrat Party stood for traditional Christian American values, and the Solid South was solidly Democrat. Then in the 1960s the Democrat party was captured by Communists and turned to liberalism. At that time, the Republicans took up the cause of supporting traditional Christian American values, and the Solid South became solidly Republican. Today, Republicans are betraying traditional American Christian values and Americans who believe in them have no party supporting them. There are great changes coming as the Republicans will go the way of the Whigs and traditional Christian Americans find a party that can support them. The Republican Party is finished.
... the alternative to your hypothetical demise of the GOP is the rise and domination of the federal government by the DemonicRATS party.
No other or third party can rise up legally through due process and win against that apocalyptic one-party rule.
I like some of the Mexican people I've met too, but the illegal Mexicans, and the laraza Mexicans need to go.

Texas could be taking the first step toward creating a new Confederate States of America. This time, do it right – don’t take US bases or property. Give the Feds a reasonable time to remove them and if they don’t, agree on a reasonable price. Firing on Fort Sumter was the incident that started the War Between the States, not the secession. Liberals don’t like to fight. Make it easy for them to accept that some states want to exercise their constitutional right to break away from the Union.
Putin will be all smiles. So will China, their biggest obstacle in the Pacific will go away. And all those Mex-Texicans may return Texas to the fold, Mexico's fold that is.
Actually, what started the fight was Lincoln invading South Carolina by sending troops to Ft. Sumpter to enforce collection of the increased tariffs imposed by the new Morrill Tariff.
In the North, enforcement of the Morrill Tariff contributed to support for the Union cause among industrialists and merchant interests. Speaking of this class, the abolitionist Orestes Brownson derisively remarked that "the Morrill Tariff moved them more than the fall of Sumter." In one such example the New York Times, which had previously opposed Morrill's bill on free trade grounds, editorialized that the tariff imbalance would bring commercial ruin to the North and urged its suspension until the secession crisis passed. "We have imposed high duties on our commerce at the very moment the seceding states are inviting commerce to their ports by low duties."
As secession became more evident and the fledgling Confederacy adopted a much lower tariff of its own, the paper urged military action to enforce the Morrill Tariff in the Southern states. Lincoln pledged during his campaign he would enforce the new tariff, and he did when he invaded South Carolina after it had seceded.
