Meaning of NeoCon or Neoconservative

The graph captures the dramatic increase in the use of "NeoCon" in American vocabulary since the re-election of G.W, Bush in 2004.
The phenomen of NeoCon or neoconservative may be relevant to your domestic political situation or may soon be relevant. The term came up in the FDA's podcast on Canada and Colombia Relations, which the NDP's opposition international trade critic, Mr. Don Davies, referred to the Canadian Conservative government as neoconservative.

What does this term mean? The FDA consulted the urban dictionary, which tends to have concise definitions which are devoid of political correctness. According to the definitions and the FDA's perspective, NeoCon refers to warmongers, propagandists, phony social conservatives, and political persons who have moved inward from the far-right and from the left to the empty state of neoconservative.

From the urban dictionary:

1. Criminally insane spenders that believe in killing brown people for the new world order. Huge Orwellian government, unfathomable amounts of spending, bomb tens of thousands of people to death to rearrange the globe. Take the worst aspects of the liberal and conservative positions and combine them into one and you would have a NeoCon.

"NeoCons are the greatest threat to life, liberty and property this country has ever known."

2. Originally used to describe left-wingers who crossed the floor, NeoCons are on the authoritarian right, rather than the traditionally conservative libertarian right. They tend to be very pro-war and adopt the mentality of "We're better than you and we know it."

Some more vulgar people call them Neocunts.

"I don't really like Kerry, but I'd rather see him in power than those horrendous NeoCons who currently run things!"

3. A. Small group of politicians coming from as early as the Ford administration up to the Bush II administration.
B. Have a fake pretense about believing in smaller government. In reality believe in big spending and tax cuts for their wealthy political and business friends, hence deficit spending.
C. They fake being social conservatives, although true social conservatives believe they really care about social issues. NeoCons distract the public by acting like they really care about social issues like gay marriage, abortion, and flag burning. Meanwhile they are busy conducting wars and stifling your freedom.
D. Believe in costly wars and creating boogeymen to try and make you think only they can keep you safe while they restrict your freedoms to "protect you". This is their signature issue, to help keep them in power.
E. Actually despise any types of small government advocates, Barry Goldwater, traditional live and let live conservative, and libertarians.

"George Bush I and II, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, are all a bunch of NeoCons."


Question to Readers:

What purpose do NeoCons serve in a democratic society?
