It's good to see there are some conservatives that can see Rush, Hannity, Beck, etc. for what they are. Those people carry the water for the powers
at be, and are rewarded handsomely for the propaganda they spew. I think it is clear how much contempt those talking-heads have for their listeners.
I would probably (incorrectly) be labeled a socialist by many nowadays. I do believe that a government for, by, and of the people can do much good,
and is more likely to promote the general welfare than a system of state sanctioned corporatism. (Is it no wonder that people have been intentionally
persuaded to conflate socialism, nazism, communism, and fascism, lol?) However, even though I do believe, for example, in a single-payer healthcare
system; I also think that free-market capitalism has its place and value, as well. I just don't think that profit is necessarily the be all and end
all of everything.
I believe that a libertarian like you, and a humanist like me have much in common. It is my conjecture that Rush, Beck, Cheney and their ilk are most
vested in making people like you and me feel like enemies, as the greatest threat to the true power structure will come when the different flavors of
non-sheeple come together to help promote the increase of real freedom.
Some measure of collectivism can actually promote individuality, in my opinion. Extremes are usually flawed, and black and white thinking is a
pathetic crutch for those who do not know how to use their brain. Does that make any sense to you? Anyway, just thought I'd throw some stuff out
there, and see what you think, as you seem to be iconoclastic.
Happy New Year!
