Fascist Republicans Called Out By Reagan Economist On Regulation Propaganda Lies

I don’t like either political party because politics is never about the search for truth.  It is about power and control.  Organizing power and control against each other in Congress serves no purpose to democracy.  None.  It serves the party masters.  And the party masters serve those who line their pockets.  That would be their corporate masters.  Fascism.  But if you are a backer of the modern day Republican party, your mind is so deluded by Nazi-style propaganda techniques that you are supporting your own demise just as Nazi-backers did in Germany.   As we have noted numerous times in one way or another, Abraham Lincoln, the founding President of the Republican party would have declared war on his own party for what they have become. 

Most of Reagan’s financial and economics team has publicly abandoned his ridiculous notions of economics at one time or another. 

Here’s another one – Bruce Bartlett.  One who remarks a truth that we have incessantly hammered on countless times.  That is, proper regulation does not kill job creation.  It protects society and is necessary to create a working market and merit-driven economy.   And neither does deregulation create jobs.  It destroys working markets.  Which, by the way, is what the Republican party’s corporate masters want.   Who wants to compete when you can buy the government and guarantee competition is stifled?  What the fuck does a politician know about economics?   In actuality, what do they know about anything?   Restore democracy and democratic economics to We The People.  That is all they need to know. 

I am obliged to confess I should sooner live in a society governed by the first two thousand names in the Boston telephone directory than in a society governed by the two thousand faculty members of Harvard University.

That’s because leadership is not about being book smart or believing one can score higher on a standardized test.  Nor is it about kissing babies or campaign sound bites.  Leadership is simply understanding that the only way one can be successful as a leader is by empowering and harnessing the cumulative knowledge of a free, industrious and creative talent of a society.   And all of that only starts with authenticity.  More authenticity is likely to be found in the first two thousand names of the Boston phone book;  in average people not always motivated by ego-driven power, status and greed.  See any Soviet-style Washington politicians sharing this message and delivering in policy initiatives to make it happen?
