I’m gonna show you an email I got from GOPUSA. I sign up for stuff like that because I need the material.
Republicans have themselves a very cool business plan.
First they scare the crap outta ya. Wonkette has another good one this morning about some rightwinger claiming that President Obama wants to start violent race wars.
This email I got claims that President Obama is a scary black man keeping secrets. Then they try to sell you guns, gold, or grub to get ready for the poop hitting the fan.
It’s a business plan. It’s snake oil. They scare people who feel out of control or marginal in society and steal their money for the New Three G’s: buy gold for when your money has no value, guns to protect your gold, and grub for when the whole place go to crap and you need a stockpile of food.
There is a special place in hell for merchants of fear.
Thank you. I feel better after that rant.
