The Republican vision for American society

Arkansas columnist Gene Lyons nails it How to sabotage a recovery Salon 06/08/2011:

What most [Republican leaders] have in mind is something more like the Deep South of the 1950s - an imagined paradise with comfortable "aristocrats," a timid middle class, and beaten-down peasants at each other's throats.

Many of them probably saw "The Andy Griffith Show" as a documentary.
I would just add, without Social Security.

FEATURED QUOTE

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."


-- Cecil Day-Lewis from Where Are The War Poets?
