I never said they couldn't. But, I think fundamentalism, by its very nature, is highly compatible with conservativism. Fundamentalism is essentially trying to go back to the basics (the fundamentals, if you will) of a religion. Conservatism is about preserving traditional ways and values and such.


fundamentalism is the opposite of conservatism.

a conservatist wants things to stay as they are. fundamentalists are radicals. Radicals want change.

if a fundamentalist wants "to go back to", he wants to change the current situation, and thats not something a conservatist would do
I see you standing there. You think you so cool. Why don't you just..... fuck off!

Really, it didn't, until the 14th Amendment (ratified in 1868):

All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.


Though there's also the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence, though it's not a law:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.



Cheers. So basically certain groups of people were denied basic rights, like voting, being able to eat in the same restaurant as another person, use the same washroom and so on for decades and decades.

I don't know about that, action. It's the conservatives in the US who are always talking about going back to what the Founding Fathers intended and such. It's the conservatives (some of them, at least) who want to undo things like Obergefell and Roe v. Wade. Or, in other words, conservatives want to change things back to what they were if they think things are getting too "liberal" for them.

well, that's not very.. 'conservative', isn't it?

a conservative wants to change? do you even know what a conservative is?

conservative: not usually liking or trusting change, especially sudden change

Yeah, not liking change. SO, if something changes, especially in what they think is a bad way, they'd want to change it back to what it was. They'd want to UNDO the change, reverse the change, make things the way they were before the change.

(As the song goes....changes aren't permanent, but change is. :cool: )

The only thing I want to change is the obnoxious man who occupies the oval office because of 60,000 Jill Stein/Russia inspired votes and is out to destroy what his 44 predecessors accomplished before him!

You're telling me you're not a fan of Trump? I never would have guessed! :shock: :lol:

As for Jill Stein, I know there were all those allegations with Al Franken....maybe if that had never happened, they could have ran together. Could have been a real "monster" of a ticket, ya know....:P

(yeah, kind of a "dad joke" there, aint it)

No, it was just a stupid joke. If they ran together, it would be "Franken/Stein"... hence a "monster ticket" :P

“Trump Iran Deal Pullout Cataclysmic”

http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/trum ... -1.3978202

“.@AP is now confirming the details of what I reported two days ago. I said that Europeans "offered over a dozen ways to 'fix' the agreement to Trump's liking. He rejected all of them." He never seriously considered "fixing" the deal.”

“It’s ALL about trying to erase whatever Pres Obama did. Trump thinks nothing about the consequences, he ONLY thinks about revenge.”

What a farce — everything connected to Donald J. Trump, including the opening of a US embassy in Jerusalem!
