Anarchists

Right Wing Revisionist Capitalism

Capitalism and the free market as envisioned by Adam Smith - the father of Capitalism (OR the founder of free market economics) - understood that profit at any cost was not the answer:

Would Smith have stood with America's captains of industry in opposition to the National Labor Relations Act of 1935, which workers the right to form unions, engage in collective bargaining, and to strike? Not likely:

Alan Grayson: Conservatives are anarchists

Consider this the greatest book endorsement ever.

I'm a big fan of CrooksandLiars.com, and when the book "Over the Cliff," How the Election of Barack Obama Drove the American Right Insane. was announced, I knew I would pick it up at the library as soon as I could.

But now that I have read the endorsement Rep Alan Grayson (Big D-FL08) just gave it, I want it more than ever.

Rep. Alan Grayson:

At their hugely popular website ‘Crooks and Liars,’ John Amato and David Neiwert have helped to expose the fact that there is no conservative party in America any more. They show that the right wingers are not conservatives, they are anarchists.

The only law the right wing believes in is the Law of the Jungle. No schools, no hospitals, no job programs, no nothing. Their idea of nirvana is Mogadishu. See it there, at ‘Crooks and Liars,’ and read it here.”

Only Alan Grayson can put something in perspective quite like that.

BENEATH THE SPIN ERIC L. WATTREE

From this point on I pledge to stop using the terms "conservative" and "Republican" interchangeably. I'm beginning to realize there's a big difference between the two. Conservatives are loyal and well-meaning Americans of good faith who just happen not to share my opinion of what's in the best interest of America. On the other hand, it has become clear that the Republican Party has crossed the line between the loyal opposition, and subversion.

Am I indulging in radical hyperbole? I don't think so. The American Heritage Dictionary defines subversive as "Intended or serving to subvert, especially intended to overthrow or undermine an established government" (emphasis added).
