  • Reagan’s “war on big government” wherein he intentionally sowed mistrust and fear of the government itself. He followed this up by slashing taxes, and by doing so ushered in the era of still-uncontrollable deficit spending.
  • The “Eleventh Commandment of Republican Politics”: “Thou shalt not speak ill of your fellow Republican.” This discouraged criticism and self-examination, and ostracized anyone who had the temerity to speak up.
  • George W. Bush’s “War on Terror”, including the illegal invasion of Iraq, America’s acceptance of the same form of torture for which we executed Japanese officers after WWII, and the Patriot Act.
