Ideology and Wishful Thinking 0

After selling the US economy to the highest bidder, eroding the middle class, pursuing a bubble machine that would have made Lawrence Welk jealous, the Republican prescription for improving things: More of the same.

The first public debate Thursday night of the six Republicans seeking the GOP nomination to run for Congress against Glenn Nye was less about their differences than their shared views that the federal government has to shrink and the U.S. has to become energy independent.

Their messages varied, but all carried the same theme – less government interference.

This is politics from the “To hell with facts and experience; if I believe it, therefore it must be true” brigade.

If these folks were in charge of education, we’d still be attributing fire to phlogistan.

Oh, wait.

I forgot Texas.
