Indeed - “conservatism”, ie, free market capitalism, IS a “racket” for a lot of people to get rich, despite their starting point.

This really irritates elitists who want to keep the classification of “rich” all to themselves.

Socialism is a racket for not only making a lot of people very very poor and very very miserable, but it’s a racket to keep a lot of people under the absolute control of a very few people.
And that’s what they want.

Yes, Joe, it is. What’s your point?

But why would there be a market for these racketeers? Does that not imply there are conservatives out there to consume false-conservatism? Or is Rush’s audience, for instance, entirely made up of liberals slowing down to see the car wreck?

Meanwhile, being a turn coat Republican, like Joe Scarborough, is an even bigger racket.

No one ever called Scarborough fair, except maybe Simon & Garfunkel.

Joe is projecting. Liberalism is a racket.

I don’t think it’s fair to blame it on one party. Here’s a list of the 50 richest members of Congress:

Joe Scarborough’s reported net worth would rank with about #17 on this list.

Any young girls found dead in Scarborough’s office lately?
That “GOP rising star” scumbag was drummed out of office for a reason.

Not sure if you are agreeing or disagreeing or being devil’s advocate. The left (and enablers like Joe) are now dismissing all of talk radio, internet, and Fox News as just manufacturing for conservatives. Like Robert Kennedy Jr, they are creating a narrative that Fox and conservative media is just all lies to spread false propaganda (and Joe adds ‘making people rich’ as another motivator).

This whole thing is crap. The base voters that make up the conservative wing of the GOP are by any measurement more informed, more involved and more on top of the issues than any other group.

The left is now trying to disqualify any argument to Obama and the left as manufactured rather than have to debate the issues.

I was questioning the “left narrative” you posited in your post.

Doesn’t everybody want to get very very rich? Conservatism is certainly a scheme by which everybody will have a better chance of getting rich.

Isn’t Joe Scarborough pretty rich?

Uh huh. And global warming is a racket that has made dumb butts like Al Gore very rich.....race baiting has made a lot of black demagogues (like Big Al) very rich.....unions have made commie thugs like Trumka very rich....sports and entertainment are rackets that have made thousands of otherwise unemployable people very rich. I love it when libs get all huffy over people getting rich - pure projection.
