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.

One who follows the "neo-con" subsect of the American conservative political wing. A Neo Conservative generally favors hawkish foreign agendas and overt militarization due to their core purpose of promoting American supremacy overseas and their disgustingly retarded and simplistic belief that any given situation can be resolved with aggression (see: wordIraq/word). Due to their unabashed shortsightedness, they are considered ignorant buffoons by other conservatives. Especially so by the wordpaleoconservatives/word.

When it comes to domestic affairs, however, Neo Conservatives aren't nearly as decisive. In fact, they're totally impotent and ineffectual.

Gee, I guess that's why our economy is in the shitter and the rest of the world hates us... We have a neo-conservative worddickhead/word in the White House.

A word semi-cleverly used to proclaim yourself a fascist without actually saying the word.
Reducing taxes for the richest people on earth while spending ludicrous amounts of money to force young soldiers to fight an unjustifiable war; spying on and detaining people without any real criminal evidence against them under the guise of "fighting terrorism"; and dismissing any counter arguments to your beliefs and/or actions as being "Anti-American" doesn't make you a "fascist". It makes you a neoconservative.

Person who practices 1960s hedonism in his/her personal life, but abolishes all the hard parts (social responsibility) of that decade's cause. Normally a chicken hawk, as well. Often uses drugs but wants to spend $37,000/year of taxpayer money to ruin the lives of poorer people who do the same.
If you haven't figured it out, the neocons are in control right now.

see "Chicken Hawk".
Some bommer baby "intellectual" who sleazed himself out of serving in Vietnam, but 30 years later is way too eager to send somebody else to war. They have two other distinguishing charicteristics.
1) When they start trouble they call it "pre-emptive strike. When the sand niggers do thje same thing they call it "jihad."
2) Even tghough they were too yell themselves to go to Vietnam, they have the balls to call Vietnam vets who question them (like john Kerry) "traitors"
Flaming hypocrytes!!

Neoconservative is a movement in the United States, started by political visionary Irving Kristol, that consists of former socialists who saw the truly parasitic evil that socialism represents. They then became "former liberals mugged by reality". During the cold war, Neocons represented an important ideological bloc against communist aggression from the Soviet Union and genocidal China. Neoconservatives believe in spreading modern enlightened values and democratic ideals across the world, if necessary, by military intervention. They have made some mistakes, like the Iraq war, but they are still an important and decent political movement. Their domestic policies don't have any particular ideological tilt, but they are mainly involved in US foreign policy. Leftist idiots and morons often attack and insult neoconservatives, but that's because socialists and liberals are suicidally anti-social.

Economically, Neoconservatives believe in fair trade and free market economy, so they support NAFTA. Neoconservatives are very powerful, and have a lot of influence in the White House. A lot of political think tanks are Neoconservative. For further details, see the wikipedia article on neoconservative.
Not to be confused with paleoconservatives, who are Nazis in disguise.
A neoconservative believes in free trade and the propagation of modern democracy in backward countries.

Also called neo-con, this political philosophy is a combination of liberal and traditional conservative views.

On domestic issues, Neocons say they are for limited government, free market solutions and things like that. However, when non-interventionist tactics do not yield the result they want, they have no qualms about using government power to garner the desired result.

For foreign policy issues, they tend to refrain from using diplomacy. Neocons tend to participate in nation-building in the attempt to set up desired governments in other countries. They claim to support liberal democracies and human rights abroad but generally are more than willing to abandon this goal if it won't create the desired effect. Neocons usually want to use massive military force to solve most international issues despite the fact that very few of them have ever served.

Neocons see the world in binary, good vs evil and us vs them, terms. They are generally upper middle and upper class white people with college educations (ie the stereotypical WASP) but there is also a strong neocon segment among poor whites with little education (ie the stereotypical redneck). Tending to be socially conservative, they often belong to evangelical Protestant Christian churches and claim to have strong moral values. They love the status-quo.
Neoconservative people primarily belong to conservative groups and parties such as the GOP and NRA. This leads to power struggles in these groups as tradition conservatives, paleoconservative and conservative libertarians (all sharing similar values) fight the neocons for control and to be the face of the group.

The most famous neocon is George W Bush
