Conserves go trumpish

 Why go half way?  The party goes full trucker.  I would write the note that I sent dougs about going full physics, but I lost it.  To me, that's the same as sending it.  

Wouldn't it be nice if the cons went 'hard nose', instead of wacky right.  Then, they could take it to the intellectual left.  But no, they never do.  

Hard nose:  All gov't spending is to increase tax revenue over the long term.  That includes health care, and welfare to get people paying taxes again.  

Very hard:  Only the Scientific Method proves anything.  Lip flapping is useless.  :)

And so on.  However, everybody falls for the lip flappers.  Let's say some middle class wants more gov't money.  Just trot out the one in a million pitiful case.  Results in the other million to get money they don't need.  You really need a campaign against lip flapping, but truckers rely on it.  In the end, it becomes all the same.  :)

Hard nose is about appear as 20 % interest rates. So much for yer zero cost utopian middle class and goodbye lip flappers.

We old people have lived through that. Lip flapping states that we can knock down inflation with just interest rates. Hard nose says that interest rate hikes only knock down the economy down to a recession. Nobody strikes for a raise in a depression. :)

A deep recession will make people more sceptical of the lip-flappers who got us into this.
