Conservatives and their representing party, the GOP, must be reeling in disbelief as less than a decade out from the pinnacle of conservative political dominance we find ourselves on the cusp of a socialist utopia: healthcare rationing and gun confiscation are on our doorstep.
Don’t you wish you had it to do all over again? Would you applaud compassionate conservatism? Would you wage full-scale war on Persia? Would you support Bush’s ownership society? Would you cheer the loss of habeas corpus and posse comitatus? Or would you dismantle the welfare/warfare state as best you could? Would you do it today? Would you primary your fav warmonger politician? Would you give up your social security check? Would you even support the golden rule? Nah.
As the curtain draws, start the music and role the credits. This disaster brought to you by the duopoly - two sides of the same coin. Take it away, Dean:
Who's sorry now, who's sorry now
Whose heart is achin' for breakin' each vow
Who's sad and blue, who's cryin' too…
