The lunatic conservatives
The conservatives on the Internet and elsewhere are conmen and lunatics who spin paranoias and fictions in order to keep people from noticing their deceptions. When I suggested that young violent offenders should be drafted into the military, a lunatic conservative said that this was a liberal ploy to weaken the army. When I said that I was a part of a clean energy project, a lunatic conservative accused me of fascism. When I tell the factual reality that should be common sense - that raising carbon emissions while cutting down rainforests that absorb carbon dioxide means problems - the lunatic conservatives continue to accuse me of running a hoax. So it should come as no surprise that the lunatic conservatives would be supporting the most irrational candidates in the history of American politics.
The American lifestyle exists because of science. Without science, not their vehicles, not their TV's, not their air conditioning, not their computers, not their phones, not their supermarkets, would exist. And yet the lunatic conservatives continue to attack science. They do not give credit for what they have to science, as supposedly nothing good comes from the damn commie liberal government. They give it to God, who had nothing to do with it (or else the same things would have existed in every Christian society over the 2000 years that Christianity has existed), or else to America - meaning themselves as practicioners of lunatic conservatism rather than the hard-working and - yes - liberal people in America's institutions of higher learning.
The lunatic conservatives continue to take credit for all of America's accomplishments. Meanwhile most of these accomplishments were done by liberals or middle-of-the-roaders. Science that's at the root of everything that business sells; education that makes people employable; the computer industry that was the true engine of 1980s and 1990s prosperity; Hollywood that dominates the world's airwaves; and government projects such as the Interstate and the Internet that provide the backbone for business growth and prosperity; are all vastly liberal. Meanwhile the right-wing economic entities such as Texas Oil and the beef industry are economic parasites that, in case of Texas Oil, lied to people and lobbied government for decades to deny reality and sabotage progress toward better technologies; and, in case of the beef industry, is government-subsidized to the point that it takes land that should be used to feed 2 billion people and uses most of it to raise cattle feed, so that it feeds a fraction of that number; and instead of reaping vast economic benefit from selling the food abroad and vast political benefit from giving it away in times of famine, America reaps obesity, diabetes and debt.
The lunatic conservatives keep whining about "liberal media." Liberal media? Does that mean Rupert Murdoch? So they've created their own liar media consisting of conmen such as Pat Robertson, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Alex Jones and are continuing to whine that they're being outcompeted by "liberal media" even as they continue to claim that the liberal are all whiners and that they, as conservatives, are reasonable strong responsible men.
The lunatic conservatives continue insisting that they are rational and responsible even as they continue to aggressively deny reality and to spew forth lies and absurdities such as that the world is run by a Satanic conspiracy, that AIDS is God's way of controlling the homosexual population, that 9-11 happened because God removed his protective umbrella over America, that global warming is a hoax, or that one can want the end of the world before the children being born now have reached maturity and have family values at the same time. Unbelievably, there is a large population that believes all this nonsense. Well, maybe not unbelievably. If millions of people could follow Hitler, then so can millions of people follow his American equivalents such as Rick Santorum.
These are the people who claim that they are America, and that the 250 million other Americans aren't. These are the people who accuse Obama, one of America's most gentlemanly and reserved ever presidents, of being a totalitarian even as they are advocating overtly totalitarian tactics such as imprisoning or killing liberal democrats. These are the people who claim that they want a small and non-obtrusive government even as they want to be part of the government and use government powers to force people to live the way that they live themselves. These are the people who claim ridiculously that they built America. They did not. Hundreds of millions of people, working over more than two centuries, built America. And most of these people are nothing like the Tea Party.
When faced with a movement that's based on lies, sustained by trickery and brutality, and seeks totalitarian control over American people, American patriotism and respect for the Constitution requires confronting and doing away with such a movement. America requires more people who are willing to tell the truth, even if it means having one's head stomped on at rallies or having viruses sent to one's computer or having an FBI file on oneself or being called a Communist. Go to the liar media outlets and tell the truth. Go tell the truth in the places they frequent. Go tell the truth especially to people who are vulnerable to their rackets. America's freedom, democracy and future demand nothing less.
