Conservatism gone too far

This is interesting. A conservative thinking group has these principles/goals/actions posted on its website:

- Put American troops on our border to STOP the flood of illegal aliens

- Abolish all anti-gun laws and encourage every adult to own a weapon

- Outlaw the purchase of American property and industry by foreign corporations and investors

- Drug testing for welfare recipients

- Balance the budget

- Rehabilitate our public school system

- A flat income tax should be introduced to allow for the funding of community, state and federal projects

- Abortion should be outlawed except to save the mother's life or in case of rape or incest

- We support the death penalty for those convicted of molestation and rape

- Everyone who can work should work

- We support a return to parental authority without government interference in the raising of our children

- We respect the right of homeowners and that no one should ever be forced from their home for the non payment of taxes

- We advocate a strong defense department to safeguard American citizens

- We support all U.S. veterans

Okay, certainly these platform statements are conservative and perhaps pushing pretty far right. But, for the most part, typical conservatives would agree with most of these ideas.

I pulled these comments, verbatim, from the website of the KKK. These people are working hard to shed their cultist reputation and become main stream. I find this to be pretty scary.
