Call Me Anything, Just Don't Call Me Conservative
Sunday, January 23, 2005

Are we getting more conservative as we get older? Will I start turning up my nose at radical music, radical lifestyles, radical politics, and alternative mindsets just because I'm getting old? Yes, according to this well-written opinion piece in the Asheville Citizen-Times.

When I was a little girl, I thought I'd magically become a grown-up one day and I would know when that day came because I'd wake up and suddenly prefer my parents' music to my own. Ok--I sort of do prefer their music these days---but 'their' music was jazz and classical, while mine at that time ran to The Monkees and Paul Revere & The Raiders. But, for godsake--please don't tell me I'll wake up on yet some other future day and wish I'd voted for George Bush!

I do get more fiscally conservative as I get older, but I still despise the republican/christian agenda. The boomer generations are as diverse a group of people as there could be, maybe moreso than the generations to come.

Conservative is just another name for, One Way Street, My Way or No Way, Tunnel Vision and Self Righteous Butt hole, to name a few.
And I will never wish I had voted for Bush.

It appears I have stumbled on a left wing website. Such hatred for President Bush. I laughed at Wishful Thinkings post. I would like to know how their party is any better? Come on ..you just have to admit there are more Christians in this country than not.

Keith,

I am sorry you dispise Christians, for I am one. I am also a conservative. It was proved that conservatives give more to charities than liberals. You see Liberals talk the talk...they don't walk the walk. I see Liberals want everything given and no rules. I see being liberal as what is wrong with this country
