How far will the extremists go?

Pretty darned far, it would appear. Consider the current Republican presidential front-runner and the number two man in the North Carolina House of Representatives:  Not only do both men favor turning back the clock on women’s reproductive freedom to the Middle Ages, both have now gone on record (for all practical purposes) in support of the proposition that we should abolish public education.

A few weeks ago, Stam’s boss, Speaker Thom Tillis admitted as much about his Majority Leader. Now comes word, that Stamtorum, er uh, Santorum feels the same way.

Truly amazing,

    Such is the worldview of Republicans.

    Eliminate public schools (implement charter schools), legalize discrimination (marriage amendment), restrict voting (Voter ID), and allow the market to decide (deregulation), as long as it decides in favor of the top one per cent.

    In a nut-shell a Republican worldview is that all things government of the people, by the people, for the people, should be eliminated.
