    Edit: the guy above me quoting irving krystol is SO WRONG. Neocons are in favor of one world government and they openly say so. They want increased government power (mainly to the executive branch) and increased spending - they want dictator powers given to the president. They also want to police the world and control everything. their short-term goals also differ from their long term goals. The short term goals are mainly a way to transition from the nation state to a new world order.

    world domination.

    no borders - they don't belive in sovereign nations.

    one world government (new world order)

    socialist policies

    increased divide between the rich and poor and no middle class

    RFID micro chipped society

    surveillance state

    massively reduce world's population

    no civil liberties

    police state.

    they may speak like conservatives at times, but their actions are NOT in sync with their talk.

    still want to vote for Rudy?


    Source(s): a lot of conservatives think that when someone says neocon, that is akin with calling them a derrogatory name, but neocon means new conservatives - and they are not conservative AT ALL. If you are called a neocon, it is like someone calling you a liberal or conservative - not an insult, just a label.

    The Neo-Conservative position on America's role in the twenty-first century might be summed up by the document at this link:


    The "Statement of Principles" of the Project for the New American Century.

    (Note, also included on the website, two letters drafted in 1998 recommending to both President Clinton and Speaker Gingrich, respectively, for the invasion of Iraq)

    Have you ever seen the cartoon "Pinky and the Brain"? The Brain is always trying to come up with some clever plan to take over the world. I would equate the conservative agenda as being similar to that of the Brain, in each and every episode of that show.

    Three pillars of Neoconservatism

    According to Irving Kristol, the founder and "god-father" of Neoconservatism, there are three basic pillars of Neoconservatism.[13]


    "One of these policies, most visible and controversial, is cutting tax rates in order to stimulate steady economic growth [...] It is a basic assumption of neoconservatism that, as a consequence of the spread of affluence among all classes, a property-owning and tax-paying population will, in time, become less vulnerable to egalitarian illusions and demagogic appeals and more sensible about the fundamentals of economic reckoning."

    Domestic affairs

    "Neocons do not like the concentration of services in the welfare state and are happy to study alternative ways of delivering these services. But they are impatient with the Hayekian notion that we are on 'the road to serfdom.' Neocons do not feel that kind of alarm or anxiety about the growth of the state in the past century, seeing it as natural, indeed inevitable... Neocons feel at home in today's America to a degree that more traditional conservatives do not. Though they find much to be critical about, they tend to seek intellectual guidance in the democratic wisdom of Tocqueville, rather than in the Tory nostalgia of, say, Russell Kirk.

    "But it is only to a degree that neocons are comfortable in modern America. The steady decline in our democratic culture, sinking to new levels of vulgarity, does unite neocons with traditional conservatives--though not with those libertarian conservatives who are conservative in economics but unmindful of the culture. The upshot is a quite unexpected alliance between neocons, who include a fair proportion of secular intellectuals, and religious traditionalists. They are united on issues concerning the quality of education, the relations of church and state, the regulation of pornography, and the like, all of which they regard as proper candidates for the government's attention. And since the Republican party now has a substantial base among people who consider themselves to be 'religious', this gives neocons a certain influence and even power. Because religious conservatism is so feeble in Europe, the neoconservative potential there is correspondingly weak."

    Foreign policy

    "First, patriotism is a natural and healthy sentiment and should be encouraged by both private and public institutions. Precisely because we are a nation of immigrants, this is a powerful American sentiment. Second, world government is a terrible idea since it can lead to world tyranny. International institutions that point to an ultimate world government should be regarded with the deepest suspicion. Third, statesmen should, above all, have the ability to distinguish friends from enemies...

    "Finally, for a great power, the 'national interest' is not a geographical term, except for fairly prosaic matters like trade and environmental regulation. A smaller nation might appropriately feel that its national interest begins and ends at its borders, so that its foreign policy is almost always in a defensive mode. A larger nation has more extensive interests. And large nations, whose identity is ideological, like the Soviet Union of yesteryear and the United States of today, inevitably have ideological interests in addition to more material concerns."
