Katrina destroys right wing fantasy

"This is a conservative country".

You've all heard it on Hannity and Rush. The claim of the decade, "the majority of Americans are conservative", "America is a conservative country".

Ah...I hate to break it to you righties, but you're wrong. Hurricane Katrina has proven what many of us already knew. Everyone, even many conservatives looked to the government to help. Almost the entire country expected a better Federal response and were shocked it didn't materialize. Now in a backpedaling effort the majority conservative government has passed a $62 billion aid package. That's $62 billion more then we have folks. We are currently in deficit spending.

Conservativism is dead, it's been dead, and only fantasy can resurrect it.

People look to the government to solve problems. Americans expect our government to actively and agressively make our lives better. That expectation is Liberalism. Clearly this is not a conservative country. Clearly the majority of Americans expect and demand the US government solve problems.

This is the biggest wake up call for Democrats since the Great Depression. We must make the best of it.

This contry tends to be slightly libertarian on personal issues and liberal on social issues. That is why we political scientist are wondering how the hell Bush won two terms.

Everyone is wondering how in the hell won Bush two terms.

Conservatism is dead, liberalism is not.

However, conservatism is alive in name only. No one really supports true conservative values. If you do you are a greedy, racist, miserly homophobe. There are some out there...but still....

Most Americans agree with liberals on issues.

I bet if it were not for cable news outlets, such as FOX NEWS and right wing radio, Bush would not be office. YOu are forced to listen to that trash if you want to listen to talk radio.
