The "even the Heritage Foundation supported a mandate" argument

1 post / 0 new

The "even the Heritage Foundation supported a mandate" argument may make fake conservatives and most Republicans look like hypocrites ;but it doesn't work on me.; The Heritage Foundation is NOT a free market organization.; Small "l" libertarian and truly free market organizations called out Phil Gramm and conservative think tanks in the 90's when they proposed Clinton-lite.When fake conservative groups support increased government, clever propagandists like Thom Hartmann use their hypocrisy to paint all free market advocates with a broad brush; The same was done with NAFTA.; The beltway "free market' types supported it but the Mises Institute and the Competitive Enterprise Institute opposed it <strong>because it wasn't free trade

On the Republican side, Donald Trump is leading the race by running on a populist platform based on the fact that he's not beholden to the billionaires or lobbyists, and that he's never been part of the political establishment.
