What Conservatism looks like..

In the Pennsylvania statehouse yesterday, the ranking Republican on a committee hearing a proposal to make English the "official" language was unwilling to allow a member to ask a question because she had the radical idea that she could frame her question in a review of the constitutionality of the bill, before asking her question.  She had 2 minutes to ask, she got about 30 seconds before the Republican leader cut off her microphone.

America, when a party has to win by silencing dissent, it is not an American party, it is a party of brutes, bent on winning at any cost and bent on forcing it's opposition into the corner, if not into the shadow. 

That is what the face of modern conservatism looks like, and it's appalling.

  1. Conservatives only give empty lip service to freedom or the Constitution.

    They don't really support or believe in either one.

    They not only inhibit freedom of speech, they try to inhibit rational thought through their opposition to quality education. They not only inhibit free speech and the free exchange of ideas, they suppress voting.

    They do that to win, they do that to deliver the power of this country and the control, to their corporate puppet masters.

    Shame on them. Shame on conservatives who are consistently on the losing side of history and always on the wrong side of issues.

    Three little words: flat learning curve.
