It's a Feature, Not a Bug

Thinking about the Republican economic ethos and it just occurred to me that the same right-wing teabaggers -- rich or poor or somewhere in the middle -- who oppose tax increases on the wealthy, a minimum wage, gender pay equity, universal health care, or even the barest of assistance for those less fortunate than themselves, are the direct descendants of that half of the country that once decided going to war would be better than doing away with slavery.

That's the end-game for them.
