    The neoconservative death grip on the US has transcended the Cheney administration.

    What can be done to rid our country of the neoconservative scum?

    What makes you think so? I would have assumed a new government in office should at least have made sure the neocons are no longer in power.

    pro2A Hell, It's about time!

    This thread is nothing more then a low blow with name calling, please have something constructive to ask, cite examples or get lost.

    This "neoconservative" you ask about is nothing more then achieving personal freedom, prosperity, low taxes, little government, states rights, life liberty and property. That is what America was founded on, not some narcissistic view the left has fed you.

    That's not correct (as long as "neoconservative" refers to the particular school of thought within the right that calls itself that way).

    These neocons were/are the driving force behind "big government conservatism" or "compassionate conservatism" and advocate government programs to promote traditional marriage, abstinence or education.

    These neocons used to be leftists on the left side of the political spectrum with sympathies for the Democratic Party, but turned their backs on it in the 1960s and 70s, to join the Republicans. Some of them even used to be Trotzkist communists in the 1930s and 40s.

    They are probably the least pro-"small government" faction within the Republican Party.

    A glimpse at a few of your posts gleans that you're a staunch salt of the Earth all the bells and whistles Americanly American as long as an aristocracy rules the roost.
    The left right crap is media nonsense that divides America on issues like gay marriage or abortion. It's charlatanism at its finest.

    This thread is horrible. Closed. As we've said a million times MD is a place to further discussion and understanding, not a place to further generalizations and name calling.
