10 Ways The Conservatives Are Bringing You The New American Age of Feudalism.


The New American Age of Feudalism is the wet dream of Conservative leaders and their propagandists.  What do the Cons really want in their dreams of Paradise?

1. A dumber America

2. Guns for everyone! (even if your kid dies)



3. Lower (no) taxes for the rich, the rest of us can support them...



4. Big Brother..."Menacing Signs for Democracy: Pentagon Researches Non-Violent Protesters as Potential Terrorists."




"A US Department of Defense (DoD) research program is funding universities to model the dynamics, risks and tipping points for large-scale civil unrest across the world, under the supervision of various US military agencies. The multi-million dollar program is designed to develop immediate and long-term 'warfighter-relevant insights' for senior officials and decision makers in 'the defense policy community,' and to inform policy implemented by 'combatant commands.'"

5. Pre-emptive wars..."A Refresher on Iraq for Republican Revisionists."

"Based on assurances of the presence of WMDs contrived by the administration, Congress authorizes Bush to invade Iraq. The vote in the House is 215 Republican yeas, 6 nays, with 81 Democrat yeas, 126 nays. In the Senate, it was 48 Republican yeas, 1 nay and 29 Democrat yeas with 21 nays. Bernie Sanders, the one and only 1 Independent voted nay..."


6. Legalized lying..."Supreme Court Moves Toward Legalizing Lying In Campaigns.."

"The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in an unanimous opinion Monday that the anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List has standing to sue over an Ohio law that prevented it from making false statements about a political candidate in 2010..."

Hobby Lobby family wants to bring "literal reading of the Bible" to public schools 7.

7. The conversion of all children to right wing ecumenical Christianity..."Hobby Lobby family wants to bring “literal reading of the Bible” to public schools."

"The Supreme Court could issue its opinion in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby any day now, and Politico on Monday took a close look at the corporation — and the family — at the center of the high-stakes case. That David Green and his family are devout and literal-minded Christians has been well established in their public statements and court briefs, but there seems to be some disagreement among religious scholars about the tone and intent of some of the projects the family has taken on recently — including a museum of the Bible and a biblical curriculum the family is hoping will be taught in public schools..."

Here's the family competing with the Walton family for Best Conservative Family Ever..."Meet the family behind Hobby Lobby, and their plans for a Christian nation."

"The U.S. Supreme Court has yet to release its decision on Sebelius vs. Hobby Lobby, the challenge to Obamacare's mandate that employers providing health insurance to employees cover birth control. Hobby Lobby argues that having to provide this coverage—which includes birth control methods they consider to be abortifacients (because they have such a good grasp of medical science)—is a violation of their religious freedom. It Hobby Lobby is to prevail in this suit, the court will have endorsed a very scary version of religious freedom that, in essence, is about freedom of religion for fundamentalist Christians to impose their beliefs on the rest of the nation."

Achieving the dumbing down of America by dumbing down of schools..."GOP candidate for SC schools chief wants to teach 'scientific theory of intelligent design'"

"A Republican who hopes to become the top education official in South Carolina says that children should be taught a form of creationism in school.

"Sheri Few, one of eight Republican candidates for superintendent of education, said Tuesday in a GOP primary debate that she opposed the Next Generation Science Standards and believed that intelligent design should be taught alongside the theory of evolution."



9. Eliminating all environmental protection laws..."Jindal: Legal action 'on the table' to combat EPA rules."

"(CNN) – Gov. Bobby Jindal said Monday that a lawsuit against the Environmental Protection Agency is "on the table" in efforts to counter the Obama administration's proposed restrictions on carbon emission from power plants.

"The Louisiana Republican and potential 2016 presidential candidate said Washington is waging a 'war on coal,' calling the EPA rules part of a 'radical ideology' in President Barack Obama's energy policy..."



10. Eliminating every bit of legislation passed for the benefit of the People...


******************

The Conservatives want you to sit back and ignore what they've done, what they're doing, and what they're going to do...aka Sitting At Home During The Midterm Elections.

There oughta be a law.
