Conservatives Trying to Rewrite History

The conservative movement meltdown is going into overdrive, if Peter Wehner's op-ed in the Washington Post today is any indication. With most Republican candidates explicitly running on a platform promising a revival of Reagan conservatism and berating the supposed "socialism" of Democrats, this former Bush hack writes that "it is a mistake to assume that significant GOP losses, should they occur, are a referendum on conservatism."

That America might repudiate the lies of Reagan and the deceptions of the Bush administration is nothing less than a miracle.

The Reagan and Bush lies appealed to the worst in our psyche - power, domination, nationalism, superiority, innocence (we do no wrong), white supremacy, militarism and endless success.

Americans bought this garbage hook, line and sinker, and it's nearly killed us.

I'm a Christian, and I'm ashamed of how so many "christians" have bought into this idiocy - while "believing" fervently in Jesus, they have followed other gods - nationalism, personal achievement and a feel-good philosophy.

Could we be on the verge of national renewal?

To really be a nation influenced by Christianity?

And Islam?

Buddhism?

Judaism?

Atheism?

All the great faiths that hold up to the light the values of peace, compassion, kindness, fairness and love.

It's time for a new day.
