Sure Republicans Are People — Cold, Heartless, Bastard People

Filed in National by on February 13, 2018

This Thom Hartmann essay is getting a lot of traction on the liberal web, and rightly so. It lays out the entire 44-year history of how conservatives fought back against the New Deal by deciding that they could play Santa Claus, too — not by offering government assistance to the poor and middle classes, but by offering tax cuts for the rich.

The bottom line is simple: Conservatives don’t look at social programs and see government helping people. They see the other party bribing voters — because that’s how their brains work. THEY WORSHIP MONEY. If you don’t believe me, listen to a conservative talk about “The Economy” and you can easily draw the parallels to an unseen, unknowable God who makes demands of His Subjects.

The GOP delenda est.

    Been listening to Thom Hartmann for 10+ years. He should be mandatory listening for anyone who needs a wake up from either of our political parties.
