"You can fool all of the people some of the time, and you can fool some of the people all of the time." Abe Lincoln was the first great leader of the Republican Party, and these are two of his immortal principles that today's Republican leaders remember and are constantly operating under. They are persistently trying to fool as many Americans as possible for as much time as they can.
When Bill Clinton was elected president, Conservatives tried to sabotage his administration by accusing him of trying to allow Gays to serve openly in the military. If some Americans cannot be excluded from the full benefits of citizenship, then, to Conservatives, that does not represent "The Real America".
Likewise, today, Conservatives are trying to sabotage the Obama administration by accusing President Obama of trying to extend health care benefits to all Americans. If some Americans are not excluded from the benefits of health coverage, then, to Conservatives, that does not represent "The Real America".
Conservatives are highly exclusionary individuals who treat this country as a private club. They are an "Old Boys'Network", full of rednecks, greed merchants and suckers. Conservatives are comprised of those who are trying to fool all of the people all of the time -- and of the fools who keep allowing themselves to get fooled.
