This is depressing.
Conservatives don’t necessarily hate big gov’t? They just want it more efficient?
I hope he is wrong but all indications are that he is correct.
Point #1 shows a basic, fundamental misunderstanding about human nature and the nature of government. Being MORE efficient necessarily means needing FEWER government workers.
Government spending should be capped at 10% of GDP. More services would be obtained through EFFICIENCY, not higher taxes.
Well that is one good article this year from the post.
The base tactic of the Marxist leftists and community organizers is to play on the most vulnerable human emotions, envy and jealousy in order to create class and race resentment and separation.
What the media helps hide from the uninformed is that no progress is ever made on behalf of the less wealthy by taking from those who have been successful. The real irony is how the grossly overinflated compensation of network news readers, education administrators, union bosses, entertainers and athletes never enter the conversation. It's always just Wall Street and Oil Execs that are used as whipping boys.
6. Conservatives are racists and Liberals are not.
“1. Conservatives care most about the size of government.”
Not so much about the size, but that the consequences of size are so at odds with what’s most important: freedom & liberty.
2. Conservatives want to deport all illegal immigrants. - Yep.
3. They worship Wall Street - I worship the free market of which Wall Street is an important part
4. Conservatives want to slash Social Security and Medicare. - Yep, and eliminating them would be even better!
5. Conservatives don't care about inequality. - I care about equality of opportunity not equality of outcome.
If you don’t object to the excessive government regulation of most everything, you aren’t conservative even though you may self identify as such. This is a BS article. There are many different approaches to the illegal immigration problem but all conservatives want to control the borders and vet immigrants. Wall Street is home to much crony capitalism. Equal opportunity does not guarantee equal outcomes. My opinions anyhow.
