"We have among us a class of mammon worshippers whose one test of conservatism or radicalism is the attitude one takes with respect to accumulated wealth. Whatever tends to preserve the wealth of the wealthy is called conservatism, and whatever favors anything else, no matter what, they call socialism." -Ronald T. Ely
After years of carrying the pure banner of Christian principles and family values, the conservatives have been uncovered for their two-faced lives. Hypocrisy, found in both political parties, was used majestically by the conservatives. They condemned every moral slip by "the other guy." JFK, Teddy Kennedy, Bill Clinton were favorite targets of the hypocritical right-wing. But as immorality and double-standards in the right-wing became abundantly clear, there is now a hint that their judging the other guy may stop. There is hope. But those who practice such two-faced lying hold onto their deception firmly.
It is important that I pause here to thank all the people who posted comments on my blog. It is greatly appreciated. Such loyalty is amazing. ALL of your comments support my blog's perspective. The difference is between those who realize this, and those who do not. In any case, thanks.
It is now quite clear that the banks and other financial institutions scream against government interference, but when they screw up money matters badly, they scream for the government to help them. It seems that when they are making money and getting huge bonuses they bravely broadcast against the government, but when things get tough, help! They want all of the benefits and bonuses but none of the risks. Disgusting. This is only the tip of the ice berg when it comes to our current capitalist beggars. Since Ronald Reagan schemed in the White House to secret arms deals with Iran for money to support the illegal Contras, the double standard among wealthy right-wingers has been rampant. Perhaps the saddest part of it is how they have used lobbyists to hood-wink the average American.
