They’ve been at the process of discrediting government since the New Deal. Raygun, with his incessant crap about government is the problem, gave it the momentum that got us in the dire situation we are in today. It’s particularly ironic that a staple RWNJ cliche is that leftists want government to control us when it’s leftists that are actually trying to protect us from oppression. Republicans only care about power and money (sadly, that’s also true about a fair number of Democrats) and they’ll put us in shackles to obtain it.

I also honor my mother when I do things like that.
It’s all about power and money.
