"The Republican tax "reform" puts me in mind of the charge lodged against the English king in Jefferson's original version of the Declaration of Independence. In denouncing the king, Jefferson was alluding to slavery, which certainly…"

"Except spending money in programs and things stimulates the economy and brings in tax revenue. Which Democrats rarely talk about, because they spend that money for other reasons. Democrats are better for the economy by accident. "

"Yes, the GOP position on deficits is amazing.  Deficits really don't matter -- provided they are caused by things Republicans like, such as tax cuts, instead of the stuff Democrats like, spending money on programs and things."

"I couldn't agree more.  Today's conservatives behave as if an economy is linear.  Do X and Y happens.  Give the rich tax cuts and you will get economic growth and jobs.  Even their economics is one sided instead of two…"

Profile Information

Bio
Ted Frier is an author and former political reporter turned speechwriter who at one time served as communications director for the Massachusetts Republican Party, helping Bill Weld become the first Bay State Republican in a generation to be elected Governor. He was Chief Speechwriter for Republican Governor Paul Cellucci and Lt. Governor Jane Swift. Ted is also the author of the hardly-read 1992 history "Time for a Change: The Return of the Republican Party in Massachusetts." So, why the current hostility to the Republican Party and what passes for conservatism today? The Republican Party was once a national governing party that looked out for the interests of the nation as a whole. Now it is the wholly-owned subsidiary of self interest. Conservatism once sought national unity to promote social peace and harmony. Now conservatism has devolved into a right wing mutation that uses divide and conquer tactics to promote the solidarity of certain social sub-groups united against the larger society while preserving the privileges of a few.

Those Who Fail to Learn from History...

Posted on August 19, 2017 at 6:00am 2 Comments

The only thing I remember from kindergarten (other than the distinctive smell of paste) was the red, white and blue ribbon the teacher gave me when I correctly answered a question about American history, thus beginning my lifelong love affair with learning about America’s past. I think the teacher’s question was about George…
