        Benjamin, I agree. I provided about 6 paragraphs worth of specifics, but the site mods deleted it all this morning / yesterday and left only the list. No idea why they censored my suggestion and none of the others on the front page. Something is fishy. Luckily I saved a copy at home, and will repost the specifics in the comments shortly.

        Do you think Sarah Palin had some Truck Nutz dangling between her legs on election night and the discomfort drove her to run off stage after McCain's quitter speach?

        This proposal needs specifics. Any conservative will positively agree with the outlines state here. However, there are certain words like “realism” and “guardianship” which need to be explained. As it stands, it has my partial support.

        Why are you all talking about boring things like Fiscal Conservatism on a site dedicated to Trucknutz?

        I think another important thing to consider is HERMANEUTICS!

        Blah blah, constitution....I don't hear many 18th century scholars out there. Let's get some proper exegesis on that sucker, and maybe then you won't be so "libertarian." waah waah, I want my gunz!! SHEEPLE!!

        PS - in my original post I tried to elaborate on *why* #1 - #4 are good ideas, and provide reasons for them, and consequences of abandoning them. I didn't just copy and paste from somebody's blog, I took the time to think through that post. I don't see why you felt the need to censor it (and no others on the front page). It got 1770+ votes in its original form, now its neutered.

        Great, delete 90% of my suggestion. Thanks mods/site-owners. Was that b/c of the curt email I sent asking you to wake up and get rid of the 'truck nutz' trolls? Why delete most of my post, and not large portions of several even longer ones? Without the content I so painstakingly re/wrote, it's just another 'be conservatives, embrace ron paul' suggestion. So much understanding the Internet.

        stop monopolies!
        companies that are too big to fail??
        Stop Paulson and the Socialists from using our checkbooks to pay bonuses for people who run the country into the ground!

        Kurtosis - I remember that rationalization all the way back to at least Reagan, or even earlier. Like I said, it was supposed to force rollback of many 'great society' programs. Doesn't seem to have worked too well, though... Maybe borrowing constraints enforced by global deflationary recession will come to our rescue.

      • tannerjm commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree with this suggestion, but only gave it 1 vote (my last one) because while fiscal conservatism is a no brainer, I am concerned that limited government and constitutional rights are not specific enough. In my mind, these 2 tenets would mean NOT legislating morality and leaving social issues up to states and localities. Mandating morality from the Religious RIght needs to stop.

        I think even when rank-and-file members accept that the party did not live up to its promises, it is still going to take a few years and some fresh faces for the party label to re-establish a reputation for fiscal conservatism. Right now people like Flake, Pence, Sanford are considered genuine supporters of small government, but not the part as a whole.
