Harsh words for right

VAIL – For conservatives to argue for fiscal restraint in the wake of the hypocrisy fomented by so-called conservative administrations going back to 1980 would be laughable if the mess we’re in wasn’t so serious.

Under conservative administrations, wealth has become concentrated in the upper 5 percent of the American population.

Government has grown dramatically. The culture of corruption has been made visible, and the “Contract on America” has been revealed.

Do they really want to keep calling themselves “conservatives”? It’s a little like taking pride in calling yourself a rapist.
