Wisconsin has the same problem that Washington has. Twenty-five to Twenty-six percent of Americans see Republicans doing the right things and for all of the right reasons. What do they believe in? Individual responsibility for all things. That's why they are against anything that helps people. They often claim to be Christian and/or having Christian virtues but tend to be Ayn Randian with not the Biblical Lessons of Christian Charity but the lessons Rand describes in her fictional text, Atlas Shrugged. This article helped me recognize why Conservatives really don't represent the majority of American People but through lies, fact creation, and Talking Points they convinced people that they had come to help the most needy of all of out people....Did I say Needy? I should have said Greedy.
Conservative philosophy is not bad. It is often faulty and whenever they can they create a truth through talking points that further the lie. They want a return to the Articles of Confederation and not the US Constitution they so often cite. They envision States Rights and freedom that as the Wisconsin Walker experiment is showing; neither a vision of the Articles of Confederation not the US or Wisconsin Constitution but rather a highly centralized government that would exclude or reduce rights of workers, then local governments, and as they continue to take away individual liberties the Senate Recall in just a few more days is so very important.
As you read the linked article think about the Walker Created Crisis and compare that to Speaker Boehner's debt ceiling crisis. Government is not allowed to make a profit so how do they generate funds? The Ryan Path to Somalia Budget Plan that destroys Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid and adding Trillions to the Deficit or President Obama's balanced approach that nips and tugs with balancing pain with everyone.
When you understand the Conservative Mind you may be able to understand why they are doing what they are doing not just in Wisconsin but also Congress. There is a definite disconnect because the majority of people now realize what they were voting for and what they got were two different thing.
"Deficits can be addressed by raising revenue, plugging tax loopholes, putting people to work and developing the economy long-term in all the ways the president has discussed. But deficits are not what really matter to conservatives.
Conservatives really want to change the basis of American life, to make America run according to the conservative moral worldview in all areas of life."
