    Ok Im sure this is a silly ???? but as I only recently returned from the libral side....I have been reading lots of "conservative" and "Libratarian" news/web sites.... Every now and then I come accross a refrence to the "The John Birch Society". What the heck is it? I know Dido heads are Rush fans...can figure out the other such groups but this leaves me scratching my head....Thanks all

    This was a very, very conservative group. I tryed to find out if their still around but came up blank on the net. Thought I'd join them just for kicks and see what they were about.

    I remember them showing up at pro Vietnam rallies with signs saying "Quick victory in 'Nam"...etc. Very anti communist to the point of almost McCarthy like.

    I read one time that the John Birch Society headquartered in the ozark hills area of southern Missouri or northern Arkansas. They kept a low profile in the area and not many people even knew they were their neighbors.

    Feds kept a close eye on their movements and I believe that now they've gone underground.

  9. An Idea

    Howdy Doglips,

    Here is an idea. Everyone in Fla, or anywhere, swallow your pride and go register to vote as a Dem. Then vote the way you always have!

    It should drive the libs crazy. First they will be all cocky and spewing how their ranks are swelling, then they will be horribly confused as to whay all these dems are voting conservative....:nod:

    John Birch is supposedly the Nostradamus of the 20th century. The society is based off of all his predictions. There are volumes of his predictions. It's supposed to be a highly intelligent think tank that studies the multitude of Mr. Birch's predictions. They are a very conservative group, a bit flakey, but conservative.

    In my younger days, just out of high school, we had a little right-wing bookstore uptown that sold the Birch Society stuff. I bought an excellent book on the workings of the KGB there. Sadly, the book store is now out of business. It seems Tallahassee is much more liberal (left-wing) these days. Jeb's got his work cut out for him on the next election. In a knock down drag out mud-wresting fight with Barbecue Reno, it'd probably be even odds.

    THERE WAS A PARODY SONG CALLED THE BIRCH JOHN SOCIETY. NOT VERY FLATTERING.

  15. I always wondered who they were. After a quick once over of the web site they look like a pretty good bunch. I agree with every thing I saw on there. After I take a closer look I think I might join.
