CONSERVATIVE TRUTH, ACCORDING TO CONSERVTIVES
PRETTY MUCH WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT GIVEN THE CONSERVATIVE OBAMA DERANGEMENT SYNDROME AND THEIR SUCKING UP TO THE WEALTHY
Every so often, I get a post from "Heritage Action." Sometimes it's just a piece exhorting me to support
It's a mystery to me. After all, no one needs to shade what Ted Cruz's or Paul Ryan's positions are on a whole host of hot-button issues. I mean Republican Presidential Candidate and Canadian-hued Ted Cruz (R-TX) did say that we should patrol Muslim neighborhoods and he did lead the Tea Party minions and forced the Government to shut down after filibustering with Dr. Seuss at hand. Is there some way in which both of these statements are not true? Exaggerations? I mean, there are video clips, after all. Maybe they've been doctored. But then even doctored videos don't seem to penetrate the walls of illusion that surround so many Republicans.
Anyway, here's the latest from Heritage Action:
The idea here is to complete the survey and then they will pass it on to your state's House members. And ask for a donation. But what's odd to me is that for none of these "issues" listed above, is there any question that these are Conservative positions. So why the survey? Are there Tea Baggers or Freedom Caucus members who need reminding that these must be followed even if it means that the Republican Party implodes in the face of rationality? Who knows?
Heritage Action is a 501(c)4 charitable organization and, as they put it, a sister organization to the Heritage Foundation.
While all the questions are pretty humorous, I think my favorite is No. 2: "Your Congressman should repeal Obamacare and unite behind a market-based, patient-centric, alternative .... the result would be a new healthcare system with lower cost, more choices and more freedom?"
Is it too petty to point out that this is exactly what we have now? I mean, health insurance corporations are not charitable, non-profit organization. No, they happen to be for profit (and lots of it) businesses who don't really give a shit about "more choices and more freedom." Then too would it be too catty to point out that these are almost exactly the same words that Ronald Reagan used when he pitched the wonderful benefits of privatization and un-fettered free market competition back in the 1980's?
And look where that's taken us.
