Chomsky, while not one of my favorite intellects, does however make many valid points in this recent video. As a true independent conservative I share his understanding of the legitimate concerns tens of millions of Americans have. And I also share his belief that those concerns must be addressed by our government or we are in real and serious trouble.
Where Chomsky and your truly part is with his essentially downplaying the many valid point made by conservatives. Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck et all are not fascists plotting the fascist take over of our government by fomenting dissent. While Chomsky may have not said it directly, the implication was without a doubt clear. That is politics at its worst, and once again it is coming from the socialist/statist left.
They just don't get it. Either because they choose not to, or they have been so indoctrinated by the progressive, socialist, liberal, statist educators and government media complex they have lost their ability to think independently.
Individuals (or perhaps I should say collectivists) like Chomsky will likely never understand the simple principals of; free choice, limited government, Constitutional adherence, limited taxation for the purpose of funding legitimate government business, the great potential of a truly free market to create jobs thereby increasing a nations wealth, or, that the America people if given their rightful earnings to do with what they wish would be by far better off.
The statist agenda since the early 1900, beginning with Theodore Roosevelt, and continuing every since under most US Presidents are responsible to a degree for our present situation. George W. Bush, and Barrack H. Obama may just be lest final two statist nails in our coffin.
