Dangerous ideas

 Pete Seeger and Lee Hayes

“I don’t care if Herschel Walker paid to abort endangered baby eagles. I want control of the Senate.”— Dana Loesch

Sadly, these ideas aren’t uncommon.

  • If you distrust democracy, try autocracy.
  • If you fear inflation, vote out incumbents.
  • If you dislike facts, make up some you like better.
  • We can put the genie back in the bottle.
  • There is a simple answer to complex questions.
  • We can rely on common sense.
  • A candidate’s political party is all I need to know.
  • If we can’t solve a little problem, we should try to make it bigger.
  • Everything was better in 1950.
  • Professional politicians make good legislators.
  • Being elected to Congress makes one an expert on many subjects.

There are many more repeated everyday.

    I think that Loesch column is among the scariest: Nothing matters except power —my power.
