"The “reasonable conservative” is a species as dead as the dodo. What we have left are what we saw even at the LAST round of GOP presidential debates — audiences that cheered wildly for poor people to die in agony without health care, for child labor and for wholesale executions. American conservatism is dead. It’s fascism that’s fashionable." --Dan Hagen

Why the US doesn't need another lefty party, or a strong Bernie.
In Canada:
NDP is way left
Liberal party is left lite
Green is way left.
Total = 63%
Conservative party = 30%
So the conservatives laugh as the left splits their vote three ways, and the cons rule.

This is why the American Right is terrified of a Trump pulling off a successful third rightwing party.

More Carson howlers:
--“Obamacare is really, I think, the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery,” Carson said at the Values Voter Summit last year. “It is slavery, in a way.”
“Read Mein Kampf, and read the works of Vladimir Lenin,” if you want to understand Obama’s plan for America"
--America today is “very much like Nazi Germany,” Carson said in March. “You know, you had a government using its tools to intimidate the population. We now live in a society where people are afraid to say what they actually believe.”
--If Democrats remain in control of the Senate, “there may be so much anarchy going on” in 2016 that elections can’t be held, Carson told Alan Colmes in September.
--“I think most people when they finish that course, they’d be ready to go sign up for ISIS,” Carson said of an AP history curriculum that conservatives say is anti-American.
--“What’s happening with the veterans is a gift from God,” Carson said earlier this year on Fox about the VA health care scandal, in which some vets waited over a year for hospital beds. Carson argued the scandal was welcome because it demonstrated the evils of big government running health care.
--Carson lamented to WNC.com this summer that people he meets on the street don’t know about the Benghazi embassy attack controversy. ”And these people vote. That’s the sad thing,” he added.
http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/huh-ben-cars ... s-who-vote

"He claimed that “no one has the knowledge” of the age of the earth “based on the Bible,” adding that “carbon dating and all of these things really don’t mean anything to a God who has the ability to create anything at any point in time.”
Carson pointed to the “complexity of the human brain” as proof that evolution is a myth: “Somebody says that came from a slime pit full of promiscuous biochemicals? I don’t think so.”
He said evolution is unable to explain the development of an eyeball: “Give me a break. According to their scheme, it had to occur over night, it had to be there. I instead say, if you have an intelligent creator, what he does is give his creatures the ability to adapt to the environment so he doesn’t have to start over every fifty years creating all over again.”

Carson bit:
1. Man of science, Ben Carson, sees no evidence of global warming in California, nor racism in Ferguson.
Dr. Ben Carson, running not exactly a close second to Donald Trump, but considerably ahead of 3rd place Ted Cruz, has been touring around lately, and has made some very astute observations on his travels. For instance, he noticed that he did not see any evidence of global warming while in California, where a historic drought and devastating forest fires are wreaking total havoc. But, man of science that he is—he separated Siamese twins, you know—Carson did not see it. And if he can’t see it, it must not be there. The heck with what the scientists say.
Similarly, while in Ferguson, Missouri, Carson did not see racism. Nevermind that whole Department of Justice Report detailing chronic, systemic racist policing in Ferguson. Research schmeesearch."

[EDIT: Correction, Carson did not say this. This quote was started by "Stop The World, The Teabaggers Want Off” a satirical Facebook group that only uses fake quotes. It then got passed around and picked up by Daily KOS]. "Before Obama, people barely noticed skin color; that goes back 150 years. Blacks were happy and grateful for what we were given." Link

“I personally believe that this theory that Darwin came up with was something that was encouraged by the adversary, and it has become what is scientifically, politically correct.”

"Just the way the Earth rotates on its axis, how far away it is from the sun. These are all very complex things. Gravity, where did it come from?”" --Ben Carson

George Will saying Buckley had quite the task before him!
---
"In every town large enough to have two traffic lights there is a bar at the back of which sits the local Donald Trump, nursing his fifth beer and innumerable delusions. Because the actual Donald Trump is wealthy, he can turn himself into an unprecedentedly and incorrigibly vulgar presidential candidate. It is his right to use his riches as he pleases. His squalid performance and its coarsening of civic life are costs of freedom that an open society must be prepared to pay.

When, however, Trump decided that his next acquisition would be not another casino but the Republican presidential nomination, he tactically and quickly underwent many conversions of convenience (concerning abortion, health care, funding Democrats, etc.). His makeover demonstrates that he is a counterfeit Republican and no conservative.

He is an affront to anyone devoted to the project William F. Buckley began six decades ago with the founding in 1955 of the National Review — making conservatism intellectually respectable and politically palatable. Buckley’s legacy is being betrayed by invertebrate conservatives now saying that although Trump “goes too far,” he has “tapped into something,” and therefore. . . ."
--George Will George Will Calls For Trump to Be Thrown Out of the Republican Party

Here come the establishment knives!

"What puzzles me is why there isn't more indignation. The Tea Party is the most indignant domestic political movement since Norman Thomas's Socialist Party, but its wrath is turned in the wrong direction. It favors policies that are favorable to corporations and unfavorable to individuals. Its opposition to Obamacare is a textbook example. Insurance companies and the health care industry finance a "populist" movement that is manipulated to oppose its own interests. The billionaire Koch brothers payroll right wing front organizations that oppose labor unions and financial reform. The patriots wave their flags and don't realize they're being duped. Consider taxes. Do you know we could eliminate half the predicted shortfall in the national budget by simply failing to renew the Bush tax cuts? Do you know that if corporations were taxed at a fair rate, much of the rest could be found? General Electric recently reported it paid no current taxes. Why do you think that was? Why do middle and lower class Tea Party members not understand that they bear an unfair burden of taxes that should be more fairly distributed? Why do they support those who campaign against unions and a higher minimum wage? What do they think is in it for them?" - Roger Ebert, April 9, 2011
