  •  Privation of Tens of Millions of Americans (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    was to insist on balanced budgets and to resist virtually all efforts to directly relieve the privation of tens of millions of Americans who suffered even unto starvation.

    Sounds like Republicans!

    Worldview of a nasty, brutish humanity that is meant and predetermined to suffer? Check.

    Government that everyone pays into but that somehow can't serve its denizens substantially, except for the elite? Check.

    Wet dreams for historical time periods that never existed as they happened, not to mention worshipping the same generations that voted for the biggest government/most liberal regimes in history but denouncing liberals and deficits, even when practiced by themselves? Check.

    Indifference to impending disaster? Check.

    When such human rights luminaries as Nancy Pelosi and leading Republicans call Hugo Chavez a "thug" and a brutal dictator, how could you possibly disagree?
