In “Up from Conservatism: Why the Right is Wrong for America”, by Michael Lind, the author lays out the Big Lies which have been the basis of right wing ideology:
Supply Side Economics – reducing taxes on the highest income levels – will benefit everyone. Real purpose: help the wealthiest Americans.
America’s schools are failing. Real purpose: to defund public education.
Unmarried pregnancies are highest among blacks. Real purpose: to defund welfare.
The author covers other issues, such as racism.
Fortunately for our country, these lies have failed, sanity has been restored, and the GOP is becoming a party of Southern white males.
