Stevil,

For the past 8 yrs I have been witnessing fear from American conservatives - fear of publicly funded healthcare (ACA in particular). Admittedly, not all conservatives, but enough to add that fear to the list.

There is a similar vibe here in the UK, as the NHS comes under attack from the right wing media, on an almost a daily basis, and the Tory government quietly cuts health services by underfunding.

Sorry, but you can't just blame the Conservatives for the NHS. It was the Labour Party who slowly started to privatise it. You also mention that our NHS comes under attack from "right-wing" media on a daily basis, could you provide some examples?

The NHS is funded enough for the time being, at least until the population grows more, but it needs to be managed a lot better - that much we can agree on.

The conservatives are fearful, but I am not a conservative, I am a reactionary. For me there is no fear, there is only hatred of evil, hatred of everything that modern culture stands for.

Lucipurr,

I think you have expressed the conservative position very clearly, but what do you fear?

Well, move to Pleasantville then. Or back under the bridge you came from. The one where your kind is usually hiding to jump unsuspecting discussion boards.

Ya know it just dawned on me I have to care about that now. I lived my whole life inside the vaporize range of a 2nd target site (first target are the missile silos 2nd is military installments 3rd is population centers) so if Nuclear war would ever happen I would be dead before I knew it. Instant annihilation, nothing to worry about. Now however I am in a site that is probably outside an area where it would be nice and quick.

Holy crap, me too.

I'm guessing this modern dance piece isn't quite your cup of tea then? Big Grin Chase

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
