The Post of the Day — Aug. 22, 2013
Note from Dan: This comes from Evelyn Rudisill, on the Thursday OPEN thread. Good stuff! Evelyn, welcome to the blog.
“I really admire the far right – they have successfully convinced people like Henry that there is rampant voter fraud, that abortion clinics must have hospital-sized hallways to be safe, that the only people who voted for President Obama were those who want handouts from the government, that “Obamacare” means healthcare rationing, and, in general, the country is going to hell in a handbasket.
When will the Henrys of this country demand that their chosen leaders actually come up with sensible solutions for real (not imagined) problems?
The Tea Partiers are being sold a really sad and dangerous way of looking at our world, primarily to protect the interests of billionaires and welfare for big business. But worse than that, moderate and progressive leaders have failed to get their message across, maybe they need a comparable propaganda machine to counter the right.”
