Right-on, Mr. Bruenig.
The “free enterprise” sans government interference mentality that can take of the deep gash wound to the Gulf of Mexico and make a case for MORE oil drilling; or take evidence of wealth inequities as laid out by the Piketty Study and conclude from it that “the rich deserve yet more tax cuts” is a mentality better suited to an asylum for the criminally insane.
Thank you for stating this openly as it’s the fundament of that Conservative Christian patriarchal ethos that sees only white males as made in “the image and likeness of God, ultimate patriarch” and from this distorted theocratic lens, makes unsound, unfair laws, accordingly.
“This is just a tip of the iceberg of the circus that is Rand Paul’s politics, but it should give you a sense of his angle. Rand Paul’s libertarian fantasy is, like all libertarian fantasies, a reality-denying nightmare for nearly all but the rich, especially the white and male rich.”
