I’m a registered (and practicing!) Democrat, yet (of course) I try to be fiscally conservative. But we (as a country) are NOT like a corporation; our culture is NOT about survival of the fittest. It’s about looking out for and protecting the weaker among us. It’s not Us vs. Them, because “them” is our mothers and fathers and children and persons in any way less fortunate than us. It costs a lot of money and time and effort to look after them, but if not us who are able, then who?
I cannot fathom why the Republicans don’t get that. All I can surmise is their vision is clouded by dollar signs swirling around in their eyes and minds. Perhaps they believe in immortality, or that they CAN take it with them. They’re in for a shock, I’d say.
