Conservatives: Do You Really Enjoy Being Hypocrites? Part 1

The question I ponder toward my conservative counter parts: Are you stupid or just a hypocrite? I try to inform, but most of the time I'm met with "You and your 'lame stream' media!" So- I lean towards not that bright when it comes to government & economics, but hey- maybe I'm wrong. "Less Government" is one of the right-wing slogans. Within the slogan "less government" is the whole conservative set of assumptions about the nature of the "free market" and government's role in that market. In fact, the whole "public sector/private sector" distinction is an invention of the conservatives. They say that the "private sector" exists outside and independently of the "public sector". The public sector, according to conservative ideology, can only "interfere" with the "private sector", and that such "interference" is "inefficient".

Hypocrite Judson Philips Votes Plutocracy

Tea Party Nation President Judson Phillips said denying the right to vote to those who do not own property "makes a lot of sense" during a radio program.

"The Founding Fathers originally said, they put certain restrictions on who gets the right to vote," Phillips said. "It wasn't you were just a citizen and you got to vote."

"Some of the restrictions, you know, you obviously would not think about today," he continued. "But one of those was you had to be a property owner. And that makes a lot of sense, because if you’re a property owner you actually have a vested stake in the community."

"If you're not a property owner, you know, I'm sorry but property owners have a little bit more of a vested interest in the community than non-property owners."
