That’s something the Democrats do all the time, right? From the very top, President Obama, trying to force European-style Socialism onto us, to the lowest ward-heeler in Madison, trying to drum up support for still another lefty candidate for some office or another to foist their liberal agenda on us.
The folks on the other side of the aisle, well, they’re too busy trying to balance the budget and create more jobs to have time to do any social engineering.
Except for school vouchers, so well-to-do folks get a little help in sending their kid to a private school.
And passing that Voter ID bill, which has nothing to do with social engineering and has everything to do about….well, I’m not sure what the voter ID law is designed to do.
Making sure that open-pit mine up north in the trout streams gets fast-tracked, to create all those jobs – that’s not social engineering. That’s jobs, baby: j-o-b-s.
Oh yes, and passing that law that will force Wisconsin cops to hold anybody who can’t prove they’re an American citizen or here in the U.S. lawfully….that’s not social engineering.
Privatizing huge swaths of government? Commerce? DNR? No social engineering there. Privatizing BadgerCare? Trying to dump SeniorCare? What’s social about that stuff? Damn, that Tommy Thompson was a socialist governor.
Locking down the Capitol building? Has everything to do with security and nothing to do with social engineering. And it keeps those smelly hippies outta the people’s haus.
And for God’s sake, can’t we once and for all make abortion a crime in this state? After all the work that nice Julaine Appling and that nice lady she shares a house with have tried to do to keep marriage safe for straight folks like Randy Hopper, can’t we at minimum go back to the days when it used to be difficult to get an abortion in Wisconsin?
Guns. Lots of guns. Guns for everyone. Guns everywhere. This has nothing to do with social engineering and everything to do with honoring the intent of our founding fathers and the framers of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Some of those amendments are really good!
Politics is just like herding sheep. You have to guide people to help them feel the right way about things.
