Conservative Utopia

GOPers aren't even trying to hide anymore that their ultimate goal is to privatize all central government functions with the possible exception of the top tiers of the military brass. But they could spare those of us who like the country the way it was before they started destroying our long standing institutions and policies by moving out. Nick Kristof finds the conservative's utopia already here on earth.
"It has among the lowest tax burdens of any major country: fewer than 2 percent of the people pay any taxes. Government is limited, so that burdensome regulations never kill jobs."

"This society embraces traditional religious values and a conservative sensibility. Nobody minds school prayer, same-sex marriage isn’t imaginable, and criminals are never coddled."

"The budget priority is a strong military, the nation’s most respected institution. When generals decide on a policy for, say, Afghanistan, politicians defer to them. Citizens are deeply patriotic, and nobody burns flags."

"So what is this Republican Eden, this Utopia?" ...
Read the link to find out. Kristof doesn't think there's much danger of us actually becoming this country. Me, as successful as the GOPers are with their ransom strategies, I'm not so sure.
