"Y'know, ya'll talk about Russian oligarchs running the USA like it's a bad thing."

-- Conservative Thing To Say #543, coming soon to a conversation near you.

Lately I am reminded that conservatives rarely survive without wiser portions of the population restricting them from their own impulses. In these days, conservatism has become defined as whatever angers liberals; remove the liberals from the equation, allow the conservatives to fully experiment with their fuzzy libertarian/death cult ideas, and they're all dead in a generation. Our sense of community and patriotism has denied them Darwin's calculus.

We are required by circumstances and habit to save ourselves and these dysfunctional selfish/useless primates from their own urge for self-immolation. It's expensive. Without the constant drain conservatives place on society through general cheating and constant attempts to drive off the cliff, the better part of our society would probably already be lunching on the moon.

There are no good answers for us other than vigilance, honor, and education. But sometimes I wish I hadn't been born into these Dark Ages. What a waste of time this crap is. What a load of malarkey we have to wade through to get to the future.

Meanwhile -- conservatives Cheat, Steal, Lie About It, and eventually insist It's a Good Thing. Expect this.

"I like vodka. Don't you like vodka? What kind of unpatriotic Russia-hater are you? Vlad's a strong leader, he'll know how to make America great again." This from the man wrapped in a flag wearing a flag hat with a flag fanny pack and flag shoes and a flag belt waving a flag.

Man they're a heavy load. Heavy and they're not very brother-like. Just a little shove at the next corner --

But no. Must carry their dead weight into the future with us.

2. "conservatism has become defined as whatever angers liberals"

Yup, that's it in a nutshell all right. They'll willingly bring a hellscape down upon themselves as long as they can think the other will have it worse.

3. Most of the Deplorables didn't do the actual math, but...

...I think that most of them grasped the idea that demographics was driving the U.S. to either a full-on multiracial/multicultural/gender-equal society or apartheid. Wasn't hard to predict which one they'd prefer.

5. "If (it) pisses off liberals, I must doing something right!"

Let's explore that rationale a bit...

"If cheating on my wife pisses her off, I must doing something right!"

"If never mowing pisses off my neighbors, I must doing something right!"

"If weaving through traffic pisses off other drivers, I must be doing something right!"


Republican "logic."
