At some point, the American public is going to revolt against the nanny state and the leftward march of this president. I don’t know when the tipping point will come, but I believe it will come soon.
Because the left wants: The government to explode; to pay everyone; to hire everyone; they believe that money grows on trees; the earth is flat; the industrial age, factory-style government is a cool new thing; debts don’t have to be repaid; people of faith are ignorant and uneducated; unborn babies don’t matter; pornography is fine; traditional marriage is discriminatory; 32 oz. sodas are evil; red meat should be rationed; rich people are evil unless they are from Hollywood or are liberal Democrats; the Israelis are unreasonable; trans-fat must be stopped; kids trapped in failing schools should be patient; wild weather is a new thing; moral standards are passé; government run health care is high quality; the IRS should violate our constitutional rights; reporters should be spied on; Benghazi was handled well; the Second Amendment is outdated; and the First one has some problems too.
There’s a whole lotta stupid in that little paragraph — Republicans are defending trans-fats? — but this kind of reactionary rhetorical diarrhea doesn’t help re-brand the G.O.P. as anything other than a bunch of cranks who diss science in favor of superstition and do a really terrible job of masking their bigotry.
Speaking of the nanny state, who is the party that wants to probe every woman’s vagina, who wants to dictate the terms of marriage to everyone, and demands that brown-skinned people who roll their r’s have the right kind of papers? It isn’t the Democrats.
