Former Child Stars Who Are Now Conservatives

Why are so many former child starts raging conservatives? It's got to be that either they came from that sort of background--people who want to deprive certain segments of rights are often the kind of folk who push their kids into show biz.

Read Michael Musto's column on child star conservatives.

Actually, being liberal is more akin to illness... Denial of truth... Lack of intellect... Aggressive accusations... Its an illness....

Conservatives aren't looking to deprive other people their rights -- they merely disagree with you as to what their rights _are_.  It's just like you trying to forbid me from carrying a gun -- not because you want to deprive me of my rights, but because you disagree as to what my rights are.

Ummm.....liberals want to deprive certain segments of rights.  Conservatives want everybody to have the same right to sink or swim based on their own efforts.

You cannot give public resources to someone without first taking them from someone else.  The definition of "slavery" is being forced to give the fruits of your labor to others without compensation.  Liberals create slaves.

@mqbitsko25

Thank you! It is nothing less than stealing a part of my life (That I traded for money) when that money is confiscated and given to someone who did not earn it. It is theft legalized by fiat where the government (so how is that WE are the government?) that is supposed to be my servant and instead acting as my master confiscates by threat of arrest at the point of a gun the money I earned trading my labor/intellect!

Liberals deny as rights, property rights (my assets acquired over a lifetime that they would redistribute after my death) as well as my right to life and liberty (economic ;liberty--they prefer so-called economic "justice"--a strange term to use for theft) and the means to defend those rights. In fact the Second Amendment is a total prohibition on government from regulating the keeping and BEARING (that means any and ALL weapons a soldier might carry) to overthrow a tyrannical government.

The prefatory clause argument is a red-herring--it lists ONE reason, not the sole reason for enumerating the right. And the right is assumed, not granted. The preamble to the BOR in fact says its purpose is to restrict government. 

Furthermore, the militia (unorganized) was meant to be all males over 16 (in modern times anyone) and well-regulated did not mean governmental control--it meant well-trained, where to regulate meant:  "to put in good wroking order."  That meaning was also meant to apply to the Commerce Clause as well. Not as an excuse for usurping powers.

Leftists (Liberals) believe in some egalitarian, utopia (well, the rank and file useful idiots do)--the leadership are wanna be tyrants. Socialism/Communism ALWAYS ends up badly and in most cases will cost the opposition their lives. and the rest will all be EQUALLY destitute and live under a despotic regime. I would say 1984 models the results pretty well. And Orwell was a socialist! We should listen to his warning. His only mistake is that he thought it would be fixable; it is not, human nature, being what it is.

Why do you think the left is so tenacious about disarming the civilian population? And they use the canard of public safety and the public good to trick the less informed--as if rights are actually subject to the democratic process or to any arguments grounded in social utility. Well--you can try, but at some point we will start shooting. And for the record: We are a Constitutional Republic--not a Democracy.  The political minority are protected and confirmed in their rights at all times. So, to the leftists out there: if you don't want a civil disturbance--well, quit disturbing us!

Conservative means the Government should have a small footprint in peoples lives. There is no hard line between Libs and Cons, the moderate of the two groups overlap.

For every perceived right one group gains another group loses a right, to view it as other than a zero sum game is height of ignorance.

@ziggyboy777

The Nazis and the Party of Mussolini were socialists. Fascism refers to that, particularly the property of subordinating the individual to the state--which no conservative would tolerate. As someone previously noted, conservatives want a government with a minimal footprint--hardly the trait of a fascist---holding you responsible for your own actions; expecting you to pull your own weight; not mooching off the labor or intellect of others (all libertarians and many conservatives subscribe to this last point) are not the beliefs of a Fascist.

Certainly many on the left seem to have this strange idea that there is a right to my labor (which is in fact a portion of the limited time I have here on Earth); the fruits of my intellect; and ultimately to all that I acquire in this life seem more Fascist to me.

@samadams1776armed @ziggyboy777 What conservatives want is a government that is small enough to drown in the bath water. The U.S. is a country of over three million people, so if you want a smaller government, move to a smaller country. Our government was created in order to have some sort of control and regulation of capital. The Rethugs have been steadily working to remove all those government regulations. The government has no right to your labor, but it does have a right to taxes thereof. The corporate bullies have you thinking that they shouldn't pay taxes like the rest of us do. The real moochers are the rich fat cat corporations that don't want to create any jobs beyond slave wage jobs with only part time work. Do the math, that doesn't work too well for the people. You are wrong, the Nazis were not socialists, they were fascists that believed the rich should be the ones running the country. In this day and time, how can anyone "pull their own weight," when there's no jobs to pull any weight with? Stop watching Fox News, it makes people stupid.

Your jealousy is showing!  Assuming we actually HAD a free market--that would fully determine wages. But government factors in there unfortunately.

A mathematician; an engineer; a physicist are more valuable than a cashier at  WalMart  or one of the many fast food chains. One should take an interest in one's own education. Choices have economic consequences. 

I happen to believe people should be free to make their choices and live with those consequences.

When they tax me and give that to some loser who can't do better than some dead end job--that is theft of my labor!

And by the way, government has NO rights--they have POWERS. The FEDS have ONLY those powers enumerated to them AND NO OTHERS. The states and individuals may exercise all powers not reserved to the Federal government as long as that power is not excluded them explicitly in the Constitution.

The definition of NAZI--translated from the German:
National Socialist German Workers' Party. That party was founded in Germany in 1919. 

If I invent something that people want, I will try to get what the market will bear and my object is to maximize my profits. Make the price to high and my profits will go down; make it too low and while that will make it available to more, my profits will again go down. The curve is predicted by understanding the equation relating price, cost, and expected sales based upon market research. Curves on a graph can be generated or its representation as an equation can be used. You take the the derivative of that function and set = 0 to find the max value. 

You can do this graphically instead--either way, I hate to burst your bubble, but pricing is done without regard to people. It is set to MAXIMIZE the profits. People investing in a new idea or any thing, have a RIGHT to a return on the investment if it succeeds. If it fails, they lose their money. They get that reward for the risk they take.


I have met entrepreneurs who started with just a few dollars--sometimes borrowed from family and friends. They got investors interested--who usually take the lion's share and also tend to assist in management to minimize their risks (as in many cases was done with them previously). That guy gets rich and then follows suite to make his earnings--and they are earnings--grow more (or lose it) by helping another guy the same way. 

Grow up! You want to get rich? Do what rich people do. And they don't steal it. An assembly worker get's paid exactly what he or she is worth.

There are plenty of jobs--I see ads for engineers and scientists of every kind and description--lots of jobs--I see IT jobs as network engineers--and there is a severe shortage--There are jobs for nurses and other healthcare professionals....Not qualified for those good jobs? Whose fault is THAT? Not mine!

There are of course lesser paying jobs--lots of those go unanswered just because people think they are too good for them or want more---and they could have had more if they looked after their own interests by scoping out what paid the best and got prepared for that....and its not too late---just get off your @55 and study. There is even "free" money out there to do that---


One final point: about 10 years ago, I occasionally did some substitute teaching. At this one inner-city school (nearly all black) I was substituting for a history teacher. There was a lesson planned and these 10th graders would have none of it. And I will tell you School administrators could not care less. But there was one young black kid diligently studying. I walked up to him and asked him what he was doing--and that none of the others cared about the class. He told me that he (obviously) comes from a poor home and that he ha seen on TV what other s have and figured that there are only two ways to get that: 1. Steal it or 2. Study, get educated , go to college and get a great job/career. He thought he could earn a scholarship to pay for it--and he was right of course. He intended to become successful. I told him that with that attitude, he most certainly would!

Your making excuses either for yourself or for others. Either way, you are wrong and THAT attitude is sinking this country fast!

@samadams1776armed @ziggyboy777 You reply seems a little long winded and a little demented. Pres. Roosevelt had everything set up so that the middle class of America did well, your Rethugs have done everything they can to destroy everything he created and now they are working on ditching Social Security. Your mind has been bent by the Neo-cons, and your knowledge only goes as far back as Reagan and Nixon, the biggest traitors to this country that ever lived. So you just keep defending the corporate rich and I'll keep defending the country's people.

Yeah, and YOU need a lesson in punctuation. There's supposed to be a comma after the word, "hating," in your sentence. "Conservatives," is a word that USED to fit the Republican party. Nowadays, the word is a cover for the word, "FASCIST." "Neo-cons," are not really "Neo-conservatives, but,"Neo-Confederates," and that is a better description in many cases. Over all, the Republican party of so called, "conservatives," are nothing but a party full of willfully ignorant hayseeds that are about as American as a racist, a bigot and of course a fascist. If there is any hate directed toward so called, "conservatives," it is very well deserved.

@mizzoubill @ziggyboy777 And your comment contains the same old right wing BS line about the present time Democratic party having anything to do with the KKK, etc., who moved over to the Republican party during the fifties, sixties and part of the seventies. YOU are the one that has failed to learn the history of America, simply because you have failed to recognize that both the Republican and the Democratic parties are totally different from what they were when the KKK was created. So just get it though that tiny right winger brain of yours that the KKK club of hate mongering racist idiots have belonged to the Republican party ever since they moved over to the Republican party during those three decades I just mentioned. Geez! You are such a typical right wing brainwash victim.

If you half of a brain in that head of yours you would realize that neither party should try to demonize each other.How do you think discrimination begins, its when you dehumanize a group by putting labels on them. You don't care about fixing the problems we are facing as a country as long as you can blame others for it.  After all it took a self taught country hayseed to free the slaves and he was a republican. In case your not intelligent  to know who that is, it's Abraham Lincoln. But ask yourself this would you feel the same way if there wasn't a two party system in place and we had no Democrats or Republicans? Our founding fathers certainly didn't want one so why do we need them. It shouldn't be up to others to determine whom we should vote for,mainly those they think can win the election but those who would do the best at the job.John Adams said "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under it's leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This is. in my humble apprehension,is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution..@ziggyboy777

@butterfly1966 @ziggyboy777 You eggheads fail to recognize the fact that your "grand wizards," idiots and white trash alike, all moved over from the Democratic party to infect and infiltrate the Republican party. Which is of course why the Republican party is in shambles. It's not the party, really, it's the Neo-cons. Whatever party they belong to nowadays, whether it be the Republican party, the Libertarian party or the tea party, the result is always the same, which is a party that is being destroyed by the Neo-con filth that have all but ruined everything they touch. President Lincoln wasn't a hayseed. Hayseeds are country hicks that are racist, bigoted and, in general, haters of everything that is American. So it's just too bad for the Republican party that has been destroyed by the hayseed Neo-cons, and it's just too bad that you fools are such victims of their propaganda and brainwash. Yes, the Democratic party isn't perfect, but at least that party doesn't have so much cleanup work to do where eradicating the Neo-con trash is concerned. Mitch McConnell is a Neo-con hayseed, too bad you're stuck with that creep, who's a member of your party of losers, the Republicans, and if president Lincoln was alive today and saw what the Republican party has come to, he would definitely be upset.

@ziggyboy777 @mizzoubill Hey there Ziggy Angel Dust.  The KKK died with the southern Democrats but I wouldn't expect a brain dead radical like you to understand that.  The Democrats are still the party of racism.  They play the race card every day.  You have made blacks your plantation slaves by giving them just enough to survive as long as they do what you want (vote for Democrats).  In my entire life I've known exactly ONE person that was in the KKK.  I told them I didn't want anything to do with them because I thought the KKK was disgraceful.  But the whole Republican Party is full of them, right? Put down the bong for a while and join us back on earth.  You might learn something.

Ginster25 is just as bad. Judgmental as can be. Lump all conservatives Into a group and judge them all by the acts of a few. Sure some have been bad and unethical, as you have pointed out, however you can find plenty of examples of "liberals" doing the same thing. Get a pair, and take some personal responsibility for making something better of the world around you instead of blaming conservatives. I am guessing that more than a few of the people that gave their lives to secure our freedom where conservative even though the liberal wants to take all the credit . 'There are plenty of consevatives that believe in equal rights, equal pay, etc. You show your ignorance and bigotry in every sentence. Happy Memorial Day!

Seriously? The "Liberals"making their points here seem oddly intolerant. You are tolerant as long as one believes the same as you and you accuse conservatives of being narrow minded? Why do you assume these people have somehow been abused because they believe differently than you do? Grow up. There are plenty of "Liberal" people that have pushed their children into acting and if you were to take a count my guess is that the Libs out number the Cons by a significant margin. Just look at the number of liberal stars. Does that make them abused by your definition? You, (srjmsbnd), talk about the "functionally illiterate" and I would subscribe that you are one of them. Do you know what a "run on" sentence is? You wrote approximately 140 words and only had 1 period

With all the speculation most of these people look like they in some way or another were abused as in pushed by stage moms, screwed around and ripped off and basically learned in very hard manners as Americans generally ae on drugs alcohol, prescribed disproportionate amounts of psych meds by health professions who do a very bad job of doing their jobs for a people who has been made functionally illiterate, doesn't read real books beyond the commercial trash that is mass produced trash in a corrupt society where the corporate bastards buy and sell politicians so that they can extract super profits by inventing causes of war and then milking the American taxpayer for every dime while not paying much in taxes themselves, in a system which offers no choice as the Democrats and Republicans are the same criminals.

Many people vote conservative because they know that Republicans look out for the rich, and they imagine that they might be rich some day. That's What's the Matter with Kansas. Making big money when you are a kid would definitely push you in that direction.

The other factor would be missing out on a good education by trading school for work when they were young. Why do conservatives cry about the "liberal media"? Because most journalists have a four-year degree in Journalism. The most famous quote by English political philosopher John Stuart Mill: "I never meant to say that the Conservatives are generally stupid. I meant to say that stupid people are generally Conservative. I believe that is so obviously and universally admitted a principle that I hardly think any gentleman will deny it."

@nostradavid Exactly, and the Dixiecrat hayseeds, I see, are in full bloom here. Most of these, so called, "conservatives," here, don't even know that the Neo-Confederates moved over from the Democratic party to the Republican party during the fifties, sixties and seventies. They saw at the time that the Republican party held less resistance to their bigoted and racist slave driving ways.

The Republican party was infiltrated by every despicable sect of the American population, like the KKK, the Nazis and the Neo-Confederate leftovers from the nineteenth century. The modern day Republican was born, raised and fed the same racism and fascism, and when they grew up, we ended up with the likes of Mitch McConnell. For the last thirty-three years, they have managed to do away with the Roosevelt economic regulations, got a good taste of slave labor (an end run around owning slaves, worked out cheaper for them that way) and now want to make surfs out of everyone in America as well. They are totally owned, lock stock and barrel, by corporate big business, who are of course union haters, and have all but completely destroyed the American middle class.

Right, Republicans are such good Americans and Liberals, progressives and true Americans everywhere owe them so much respect.
