The absence of any sense of civic responsibility is overwhelmingly louder than any party or broadcast rhetoric itself.
How would you like it if these kinds of Kindergarten Konservatives were teaching your children civic values?
Working for the public good while remaining strictly stuck with the Republican Tax Cut Experiment.
Working for the public good with a lack of logic, common sense or any kind of national success story that can be attached to Republican methods.
Working for the public good with an eye single to how to incorporate strategy and tactics in such a way as to create exceedingly lucrative opportunities that are awarded to favorite corporate supporters.
Lack of health care access for millions and opposition to universal health care is part and parcel of the conservative myth about a free-market system going back to the stubborn in-denial theorizing of failed capitalists of the 1920’s.
Then, post -WWII – it was assumed that capitalism and American employers could shoulder the responsibility for health coverage for all American workers and prove to the world the wholesome power of unrestricted free-markets where capitalist employers would willingly include health care and other well-being benefits in the “cost of doing business” prior to making claim on net profit.
That assumption has proven to be a disaster. Corporate America – primarily a Republican sponsor that rewards political sacrifice of personal ethics with money – has been left at a competitive disadvantage globally and unable to resist the temptation to become competitive by robbing workers of both job and health security.
This circumstance involved both parties going back to 1946, but most recently, those who finally managed to purchase political influence have moved the problem to its extreme absurdity.
Republicans no longer have a sensible alternative to what Americans are demanding now. “Conservative” is a word that even self-styled conservatives can no longer accurately define. Self-describing one’s self as “conservative” is at this moment not much more than calling one’s self a bootstrap American or some other heroic self image that implies deep thinking.
There is little deep thinking at this point to the current dominant “conservatism.”
We are not hearing serious, deep or well-reasoned conservative ideas from the McConnells, the Grahams or anyone else terrified of he who is about to be landslided.
Prime Republican bread and butter is the distraction of the pseudo Christian morality that makes political mountains out of molehills at the expense of that with which any religious believer ought to be most focused: Compassion, justice and equality.
Any Republican blowhard who throws up one of the pseudo “moral” issues needs to be immediately confronted with a question about torture, injustice and inequality inside America and globally.
That’s nice, Mr. Republican, but what does your personal morality prompt in you regarding torture, injustice, inequality and the lack of compassion your party and your radical religious right supporters ignore so pointedly?”
We can knock down the entire façade of the Republican party’s pretended patriotism, conservatism and regard for humanity in general because it was built on bull, bluff, personal political chicanery and deliberately contrived inflammatory lies.
Would you want such jokers teaching high school government and civics classes?
