    Neocons go back at least to Cheney and Rummy, with Nixon/Ford.

    Social Cons aka evangelicals were brought in to the RW revolution at or before that time to create a populist base to help them take over the Republican Party.

    The tax cons are global ownership and the American rich, who Stockman helped acquire the power to do what the rich always do when you let them have more power. Given enough conservative policy making and enough time, and the rich can operate our Reps, Senators and their state & local counterparts directly, without bothering with party, and ignoring the ostensible leaders in the various bodies.

    That's how our system works now, and Stockman was a key player in constructing our modern democratic plutocracy.

    Stockman was a decade behind the curve when he was hired. Clearly, not only the Laffer curve.

    We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"
