Immoral values

Much has been written this week about how “moral values” were the deciding factor in W’s re-election. Let’s set the record straight: this is not about true morality, it is about religious fundamentalism.

Want real moral values? Let’s get our politicians to pledge not to wage war without provocation. Let’s get the government to completely eliminate SUV tax loopholes that encourage polluting the air and wasting fuel. Let’s stop borrowing from our children to give ourselves a tax break.

The “moral values” isn’t really about morality. This isn’t “compassionate conservativism”. It’s social fascism.
