A Quick Pictorial Peek At Conservatism U.S.A.


Before we start our pictorial journey, here is a summary of the history of Conservatism in the good old U S of A...



...so grab a bag of popcorn, sit back, and let the show begin!



First, we have to acknowledge that there are a lot of differences between the two types of presidents, Liberal and "compassionate" Conservatives...



...as well as the Liberal and Conservative legislators...



...and media morons...



...and media has-beens...



...and judges...



...and rich Conservative sugar daddies...



...and Conservative presidential candidates...



...like this guy...


...and Liberal candidates like this gal...



...and even Liberal and Conservative mayors...



...and governors too...



...and the mainstream Conservative media!



Media moguls are always Conservative, of course...



...but they really don't affect the way we vote if we're smart enough.


Here is the Conservative take on educating your children...



...and somehow that rings a familiar bell...



...reminding us that there are even Liberal and Conservative Christians!



(Can you guess which kind of Christian this guy is?)



And some think that while all Liberals go to heaven...



...others believe that Conservatives go to another place!



But finally, we have to admit that there are Liberal bigots and racists, there's just the Conservative kind...



...so which side do you want to belong to?  Me too...



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

The Supreme Court has guaranteed that the greediest among us can support their favorite Conservative minions with no limit on their gifts, and now you know what kind of people and issues that they're financing.

Besides voter suppression, voter intimidation, vote fraud, and lying the Cons are now able to buy their way into office.

Liberals don't do that, but the Cons do - suggesting that it's high time we...

...criminalize Conservatism.

Are Americans Getting Dumber?

Are we getting more stupid by the minute? Is the Conservative plot to make our kids stupid working?

The old saw by George Santayana, that "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it," seems to becoming true as the following story suggests...

"WATCH: COLLEGE STUDENTS HAVE ‘NO CLUE’ WHO RONALD REAGAN IS WHEN SHOWN HIS PICTURE (VIDEO)."

"Media Research Center TV reporter Dan Joseph conducted the experiment by speaking to 15 randomly passing students.

"Almost all of them failed miserably.

"Here were a few of the failed guesses by students when shown his picture:
"Ugh, is that Bush?"
"Guess again. 
"I’m thinking of the name right now. I know the face. Umm…."
"Another student didn’t even want to attempt to guess. She absolutely refused to answer for fear she might guess wrong.

"Some more failed responses: 
"Is it John Wayne?"
"He looks like one of those country singers…."
"And, lastly…one student come close by saying….'is it some sort of president?'"

"Pretty close, but no cigar.


"Reagan himself, no different than the Republican party of today, even ran on a platform back in 1980 calling for the Department of Education’s abolishment. While he did re-evaluate later on and form different views, one is to wonder if Reagan would have thought any different had a video like this existed early on in his career. If not for the future of America’s education, but for his own survival in history..."

Some think that we should pass a test before being allowed to vote, but that might not work out too well...

"Only one-in-three Americans knows how many women serve on the Supreme Court, but 91 percent can identify Martin Luther King Jr., 47 years after his assassination.

"That’s according to the latest Pew Research Center News IQ survey released Tuesday, which tests how well the American public knows the world in words, maps and pictures.

"Almost all millennials surveyed — 96 percent — could pick out King from a list of names that included Malcolm X, Jesse Jackson and Thurgood Marshall. Older generations could mostly identify the slain civil-rights leader, as 89 percent of Gen Xers, Baby Boomers and the Silent Generation did.

"But millennials apparently aren’t so great at identifying the current party makeup of the Senate. Only 47 percent of respondents aged 18 to 34 were able to do so, compared to 52 percent overall. Those who described themselves as more politically engaged were more likely to know the upper chamber’s composition. (For the record, Republicans hold 54 seats; Democrats 44 seats; and Independents two seats.)..."

And how are our colleges stacking up when it comes to educating our kids? Not too well either, apparently...

"Shockingly Few Students Are Proficient In U.S. History."

HISTORY

"Which of these do the governments of Canada, France and Australia have in common: a) They are controlled by the military; b) They have constitutions that limit their power; c) They have leaders with absolute power; d) They discourage participation by citizens in public affairs?


"If you chose b, you're smarter than more than 40 percent of America’s eighth graders. But that's a stubbornly low bar, according to a report released Wednesday by the federal government’s educational research arm.


"Students posted relatively low scores on national exams in civics, history and geography in 2014, no better on average than in 2010 and slightly improved from 1994. The tests are the subject exams of the National Assessment of Educational Progress, a low-stakes test administered by the federal government to a nationally representative sample of public and private school students. Experts consider it to be the gold standard for measuring student knowledge, but one of its proponents says its definition of proficiency is 'aspirational...'"

...because our kids seem to have other priorities in mind when they go to school.



Now that we know what's happening to the ill-educated Americans, it's time to find out why this is a problem, with memes and pix of people that are taking advantage of our stupidity - like this lady...



...and this lady too...



...and this guy...



...and this guy...



...and this guy...



...and these people...



...and these people too...



...because Conservatives HATE edukashun...



...and by "hate" we mean REALLY hate!



Stupidity seems to affect certain parts of the country...

...but we'll try not to mention any names...



...because some of their people's feelings might be hurt...



...even though they sometimes claim to proud of their stupidity...



...no matter how they might harm you and your loved ones!



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

Misinformed voters and low information voters haven't a clue to how the Cons are dumbing down our children, which sort of makes them pretty stupid too.

The success of their goal of making us stupid enough to swallow their lies and deceptions is staggering.

If a criminal syndicate announced that they were going to tear down our schools and substitute them with their own for-profit schools that didn't work, we'd have a problem with that.

But the misinformed voters and low information voters are helping the Cons succeed in making us as stupid as possible, and will probably take us down the path of every totalitarian government that has done the same thing in the past, leading us to ask a familiar question: Isn't it time to...

...criminalize Conservatism?

Conservatism: Political Philosophy Or Criminal Cartel - You Decide.


Proponents of a "political philosophy" called "Conservatism" like to tell their followers and our Low Information Voters that their movement is all about individual responsibility and freedom, but are they telling the truth or are their claims really smoke and mirrors?

Let's find out by seeing what they do and say, starting with the people who pay them...



...and here is what these sugar daddies want.



The Cons are all about guns, no matter how many of us die...



...especially because guns are important to keep tyrants at bay...



...because Conservatism has its priorities...



...like torture...



...and racism...



...and mass murder...



...and war crimes...



...and fraud...



...and slavery...



...and other multiple offenses...



...and conspiracies that violate our laws like this...



...and voter suppression...



...and theft on a wholesale level...



...and lots and lots of people to blame for their crimes...



...and by "lots," we mean hordes of the stupidest people you can imagine...



...and even more to aid and abet them...



...because their consiglioris have got them covered.



At any rate, there are different kinds of Conservative criminals, like this guy...



...and the kind of peeps who supported him with their own version of the Nuremburg defense...



...the kind of defense that lets the Cons escape punishment every single time.



...because corporations rule.



...and corruption is the Conservative corporate rule...



...especially in the hidey-hole for Conservatives: the GOP...


...and it's time to call them out.


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

It's clear that the answer to our question, "Conservatism: Political Philosophy Or Criminal Cartel," is the second choice.

Here's the problem: Everything the Cons do and say is clearly from the vast, rightwing criminal cartel called "Conservatism," masquerading as a political philosophy, even if their actions are anti-American and criminal.

RICO statutes were put into place to fight organized crime, but Conservatism seems to be too large to toss everyone into jail AND they claim the protection of the law because they're a "political party."

The ONLY way to reclaim our democracy is to figure out a way to eliminate the largest criminal conspiracy on earth, and that is by...

...criminalizing Conservatism.
