Marco Rubio lectures us on American exceptionalism, traditional values, and the future:
“And so here's the truth: this election is about the future, and the Democratic Party, and the political left has no ideas about the future. All their ideas are the same, tired ideas of the past.”
Palm Beach Post columnist Frank Cerabino remarked, “So let me get this straight, 'party of the future' wants to go back to gold standard, keep mining coal, and fight more in MidEast".
Let's not forget eliminating public safety nets like Social Security and Medicare, handing the programs over to corporate cronies, more tax cuts for the rich, deregulation of Wall Street, and corporate polluters having their men inside regulatory agencies.
Their future would grant more rights to zygotes than women, less rights for gays, and more restrictions on voter rights.
These failed "tired ideas of the past" are the key to the Republican Party's noble vision of the future, an Orwellian nightmare of permanent war by an expanded police state of Gilded Age inequality, anti-union, low wage slavery, in a democracy-crushing corporatocracy.
