social network for conservatives
Beck is a hate filled buffoon. Why wold anyone listen to anything he has to say?
I don't mind being identified as a Republican. I have always voted for Republicans. For me I have never found a Democrat that was pro-life, pro-2nd amendment, pro small gov't, pro military and all the other important issues I believe in. If there was a Democrat that agreed with my beliefs on those issues I would consider voting for him/her.
Likewise there are many liars, as we well know, within both major parties. However, the more I listen to Beck's slamming the republican party, his message clearly encourages the "undecided" to support the democratic campaign in future elections. He claims to be a "libertarian," and this is his personal choice but to be so flamboyant about trashing the republican (basically conservative) party is only adding points to the democratic agenda. Bottom line is, each person probably identifies with the party most nearly representing their personal ideology, (conservatism vs liberalism), and although he may feel the need to connect with people on both sides, his rhetoric does not promote the conservative agenda.
I prefer the true conservative talk show hosts who do not feel the need to patronize the opposition, and he is definitely off my list. His attempt at playing comedianne has become boring and simplistic.
I understand he does get quite dramatic. A lot of what he says has substance to it. Our country has changed more in the last year than I thought I would ever see. Sadly when I realized Obama would most likely win in November, I felt similarly. I was so tired of Bush-bashing (and I have a lot of libs in my family), I was at peace that at least the next term things were bad they could leave Bush out of it. Nobody listened. He is the most jaded candidate we have ever voted into the White House; we all knew, yet he was liked well enough they voted him in. I fear for what is to come. Like Beck or not, he has some great connections and insight. I wish I was wrong about all of it.
