    I agree with you completely. As someone who has always considered himself fiscally conservative and socially liberal, I have watched the country go rightwards to the point where the average person has no idea what a socialist or communist actually is.

    Most couldn't say they've ever met one, and very few even know that there's one notional 'socialist' in congress, much less name him.

    •  well I'm not a conservative, fiscally or socially (5+ / 0-)

      any longer. Our "conservatives" in this country  would prefer to destroy any vestige of the past. So just call me Marxist. We'll save the artifacts of the workers. Fuck the rest.

      As a Southerner,I say, hell yeah, save those Antebellum Mansions. Real humans made those fucking bricks, by hand. Some of the few humans in that place and time who deserve to be memorialized.

        I don't have too much of a problem with actual conservatism; it certainly has its place.

        But we don't have a conservative party in this country, we have authoritarians and right-wing reactionaries, which are much worse than useless.

        •  Exactly. There was nothing conservative... (1+ / 0-)

          about Cheney or Bush - corrupt, authoritarian, and greedy, yes, but not truly "conservative."
