Dopey Letter of the Day (III)

Where else but the New York Times

To the Editor:

The hubris destroying this country comes from the private sector, not government. Constitutional safeguards protect us from the abuse of government power.

Executives exercise unchecked power not only to pay themselves confiscatory sums but also to use corporate assets to finance enormously expensive campaigns of lobbying, donations and relentless, outrageously dishonest propaganda — all for the enhancement of their personal power and wealth while impoverishing the rest of us and undermining our rights.

The central tenet of the post-cold-war Republican Party — the transfer of power from the public sector, where it is subject to constitutional protections, to a private cabal — is as profoundly anti-American as it can be.

“… But don’t question my patriotism!”
