Skip to comments.Why This Conservative Thinks Charles Barkley Is Right
Posted on 02/18/2008 4:14:12 PM PST by vaper69
Sir Charles has been catching some serious flak from the conservative blogosphere for his comments about conservatives being "fake Christians."
Frankly, conservatives should cut him some slack for saying he's voting Democrat because he doesn't like the direction Republicans are taking the country. Especially since many conservatives, and registered Republicans, feel the same way and are doing the same thing this next election to "prove a point", and that is exactly what they did the last congressional election. Conservatives were fed up with Republicans abandoning their principals, and they didn't like the direction Republicans were taking the country.
If you are familiar with Charles Barkley's political rants in the past ... you know damn well that Sir Charles holds many conservative beliefs, and has openly stated we wants to run for office as a Republican. He also holds many liberal beliefs as well ... many of these come from the disinformation the MSM has been putting out for years. In other words ... if I were to sit and talk with Barkley about those issues I could probably change his mind. If you were to classify his political affiliation .. he is a moderate who leans right ... as most Americans are.
Rush Limbaugh has stated that moderates are liberals in hiding, or cowards afraid to pick a side. I love Rush, but he is dead wrong on this issue. Most Americans have conservative values, but maintain at least a few liberal ideals. Hence ... most Americans are moderates who lean to the right.
Barkley makes his case against conservatives by stating he has no problem with gay marriage, and he is pro-choice. He addresses how hypocritical religious conservatives are, to him, because they often behave in a manner that is actually against the teachings of Christ and the bible.

I’m writing in Duncan Hunter. Wonder what that says about my principles.
Turable. Just turable.
Oh, what will our schools do now that we've abandoned our "principals"?
I stopped reading after this brilliance.
Barkley is pro gay marriage and pro choice.
If you don't support gay marriage you are a religious zealot.
Who does Charles Barkley want to marry?
