At the recent debate at the Reagan Library, the crowd cheered executions. At last night's Tea Party debate, they cheered a hypothetical young man dying from lack of insurance. Watch, particularly starting at .56:
"So you're saying society should just let him go?"
This "I've got mine, fuck you" attitude has already gripped the House of Representatives. Now, they're going for the Senate and the White House. They just may win it all.
