Karl Rove's burlesque-show whore
Speaks poison to unwitting neoconservatives.
The floozy whose dispicability unites both Liberals and Moderate Conservatives. Thank you Miss Coulter.
Ann Coulter is the ugly face of the neoconservatives.
A war-hawk, usually without any military experience, who calls themself a conservative even though they couldn't care less about the size or scope of the federal government. Their only goal domestically is to marginalize the conservative/libertarian wing of the Republican party.
The neoconservatives in Bush administration are pissing on Barry Goldwater's grave.
A short term for theocratic neoconservatives--a combination of hardcore Republican and Fundamentalist Christian
The Bush administration aren't just neocons, they're theocons.
Something that people like Ann Coulter and other neoconservatives misrepresent. The Green and Libertarian parties both embrace the philosophy of liberalism.
Liberalism has nothing to do with economy. It is completely independent of capitalism or any other economic system. Liberalism is a strictly social philosophy.
It is the opposite of authoritarianism.
It is also NOT the opposite of conservatism.
Under liberalism, the government has little role in regulating social affairs. Under liberalism, the government exists to protect liberties, not take them away.
"Liberalism is a political current embracing several historical and present-day ideologies that claim defense of individual liberty as the purpose of government. It typically favors the right to dissent from orthodox tenets or established authorities in political or religious matters. In this respect, it is sometimes held in contrast to conservatism. Since liberalism also focuses on the ability of individuals to structure a society, it is almost always opposed to totalitarianism, and often to collectivist ideologies, particularly communism." - Wikipedia.com
The Bill of Rights is a product of liberalism.
Not to be confused with classical liberalism or theological neoliberalism, these people believe that a free market brings democracy. The classic neoliberal success story is Chile, which under Allende was a socialist democracy. Under Pinochet, the man the neoliberals brought in to replace him, it was a capitalist dictatorship. Famous for fighting with Argentina over uninhabited islands of no strategic importance. Also known as Thatcherists or neoconservatives.
Ultimately, both parties are neoliberal. It just happens the Demos use some lube when they fuck the world.
Exactly what the Republican party is NOT these days. Conservatives believe in smaller federal government activity, states' rights, isolationism, stronger border control, protecting American jobs and nationalism.
The Republican party currently believes in greater government spending on social programs nad the military, federal supremacy over states' rights, intervention in foreign affairs, lax immigration policies and border control, outsourcing American jobs to the Communist Chinese.

The Republican Party is one of two major contemporary political parties in the United States; the other being the Democratic Party. It is often referred to as the GOP, or Grand Old Party, although it is the younger of the two major parties. During the current 110th Congress, it is the minority party in the United States House of Representatives and the Republican caucus constitutes a minority in the United States Senate. Republicans hold a minority of governorships and control a minority of state legislatures. The current President of the United States (2001-present), George W. Bush, is a Republican.
Since 1856, Republicans have won 23 of the 38 presidential elections, including 7 of the last 10; 18 of the 28 U.S. Presidents since then have been Republicans. After the Republican Revolution of 1994, the Republican Party was the majority party in the House of Representatives and almost continuously was the majority party in the United States Senate from 1995 to 2007; the Democratic Party took control of both the House and the Senate in the 2006 elections.
The Republican Party is composed of Fiscal Conservatives, Evangelicals, Social Conservatives, Neoconservatives, Libertarians, Moderates, Liberals (sometimes derided as Republican In Name Only, or RINOs, by more conservative Republicans), and Log Cabin Republicans.
