And all those principled conservatives who are against socialism should endorse only the candidate who proposed to end all govt freebies IMMEDIATELY. No more public education, Medicare, Social Security, welfare, foreign aid, nothing that is redistributed from the taxpayer to the recipient who didn't earn it. If such a candidate could be found, and elected, the country would go up in flames. But the country be damned, let's have a principled conservative with zero tolerance for socialism. None of that gradualist crap! Let the ideal and the perfect be the enemy of the good.
While we're at it let's take another page from the febrile French Revolution, wear funny hats and transport the aliens in tumbrel carts.
