Apocalyptic Cult

Moyers and Company had a thought provoking program this week. Mike Lofgren was interviewed in the last segment to discuss his views of the deterioration of reason in the Republican party. He describes the modern GOP as an “apocalyptic cult” and ventures further to say that the middle class has been forgotten (Here at the lower end of the middle, we know THAT!). Mr. Lofgren was a Republican with a long career in Washington.

As he said- “HOPE over fear.”

    You sold a book for Mike Lofgren today. Just got it. Surprised I missed it as it was out August 2.

    Thanks and I’m off to turn a few virtual pages.

  2. Many of the religious fanatics who make up the Repub. party want the apocolypse to come so they can go to heaven where they think they won’t have to deal with people who don’t agree with them anymore.

      You are most welcome. I have been on the newspaper blogs making factual comments to offset the lunacy during this election cycle. I share this link with boring regularity.
