If you are a species of American with an identity that says: “I am a Republican,” then you think to yourself: “I am a conservative. I believe in State’s rights” and “I will kill and die for small government.”
Only, you are conned into believing the orange-tinted House emperor is actually wearing clothes over his limply little Boehner. Conservative doesn’t mean regressive. A conservative believes in conserving. Conserving our wildlife. Our middle class. Not going back to a Jim Crow era or segregation and confederate slavery; kept women; and unregulated industry that allows the billionaire class to get away with profiting off the blood of fellow humans.
It sure doesn’t mean that we spend hundreds of billions expanding government to play the Minority Report role of big brother to build fantasy walls keeping the world out and entrapping all of us IN the borders of our crumbling country and its sadly-deteriorating infrastructure.
It doesn’t mean creating an army of police-state Sturmabteilung (S.A.) agents to do what we did with the Iraq war and drain our economy dry to round up 11 million people in rail cars to ship off to camps before achieving some soul-less “final solution.” This is not only racist, short-sighted, and anti-American to the core; it is wildly hypocritical.
Everyone — even the rubes towing the disgraced Tea Party line knows this. Hillary Clinton — our next POTUS — spells it out in a press briefing at the summer DNC meeting.
