Name me an organization that should be shut down and tell me why.
While you were thinking of that, I will offer my opinion.
CPAC. The Conservative Political Action Committee.
Why should it be shut down?
Well, to begin with what have they accomplished?
Look at where conservatives are today.
What have conservatives taken the initiative on?
Four years ago they had the Presidency, the Senate, and the House.
They did nothing with it.
As usual they did completely nothing.
They had a brilliant opportunity to take the initiative on healthcare, to create a competitive healthcare market which would have brought down insurance premiums and insurance costs.
They had a brilliant opportunity to reform patent law within the pharmaceutical industry that would have brought down the cost of medicines.
They could have created an innovative healthcare reimbursement system which would make more sense than the system that exists now.
After eight years of barking about Obama, what did the conservatives give us?
A big zero.
Did the conservatives stop the foreign wars which only enrich the large corporations and their shareholders?
Did they stop the runaway merging of our corporations which enable the elite to get wealthier and further away from us economically?
No, they did not.
Did they do anything to stop the casino on Wall Street which works against conservative values of hard work and thrift?
Did they stand up to the nonsense of COVID-19 lockdowns which destroyed so many small businesses?
How about the Supreme Court? Did they stand up to Trump’s appointments of corporatist judges like Kavanaugh, Gorsuch and Barrett who will ultimately work against regular people and small businessmen?
No, they embraced those judges. In fact they cheered them on as if they were rock stars.
How about Julian Assange? Did they stick up for him? Don’t conservatives believe in the Sixth Amendment which gives people the right to a speedy trial?
How about exploitation of people in Indonesia? Doesn’t exploitation run against Christian principles?
Yes, it does.
How about our immoral CIA? Don’t their immoral practices run against Christian principles?
They sure do.
How about that rigged election? What did the main stream conservative movement do about that?
They embraced it.
So what good has CPAC done?
I don’t see much good at all.
In that event, why should CPAC exist?
Maybe CPAC exists not to promote conservative values, but to help the Corporate Party hijack the Republican Party.
Maybe it’s time to kiss CPAC goodbye.
