>>>We discourage materialism in our own houses, but a liberal will tax you for your 'luxury' items.

There is something to be said for that outlook. I just don't think it will stop at the yard's edge. Moderate environmentalism reminds me of moderate Islam; a misnomer designed to disguise a disingenuous intent.

That's very true; giving a me the title of 'environmentalist' would be a terrible insult. ;-P

I like 'conservationist' better. The dictionary definition of it is "one who practices conservation of natural resources", as opposed to Environmentalist, which is "Advocacy for or work toward protecting the natural environment from destruction or pollution."
Conservationists try to change their own behavior, Environmentalists try to change everyone else's.
