Is hate a bad word? A lot of nice people are suddenly saying it

The Beatles asserted "all you need is love" in a famous song. Since their heyday, most first-worlders have tried to expunge all negative emotions from their lives in the mistaken belief that that's the healthy norm. Even Christians are living in the love bubble, forgetting that the Bible commands us at least twice to hate evil. Times may be changing:

Americans Really, Really Hate The Government
If there is one thing that Americans can agree on these days, it is the fact that most of us don’t like the government. CBS News has just released an article entitled “Americans hate the U.S. government more than ever“, and an average of recent surveys calculated by Real Clear Politics found that 63 percent of all Americans believe the country is heading in the wrong direction and only 28 percent of all Americans believe that the country is heading in the right direction. In just a few days the first real ballots of the 2016 election will be cast in Iowa, and up to this point the big story of this cycle has been the rise of “outsider” candidates that many of the pundits had assumed would never have a legitimate chance. Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders have all been beneficiaries of the overwhelming disgust that the American people feel regarding what has been going on in Washington..........

The change will be slow, I fear. One indication is that in the middle of this otherwise frank and important article, massive stupidity rears its head. A lot of Republican voters, it says, "are gravitating toward either Donald Trump or Ted Cruz. Both of those candidates represent a complete break from how establishment Republicans have been doing things in recent years." Cruz real -- a conservative and equivalent in any way to the Donald? 

This is the great achilles heel of today's politics: people don't know real conservatism from fake anymore. The establishment's disgusting, hateful shills like Kasich, Cruz, Rubio, Carson, Santorum et al are still fooling millions. Whether Trump proves another snake or a real statesman, only time will tell -- but he's only been any kind of conservative for seven months. Meanwhile, it's a thrill to see him humiliate and excoriate the Permanent Regime.

The above article came my way via Freedom Forum:

I spend hours there each day and highly recommend it. This just in -- are you read for a company called Crowds on Demand?

Truman Show USA - "Concerned Citizens" At Townhall Meetings Exposed As Paid

It has a CEO, no less -- unsurprisingly a graduate of UCLA. We've complained of liberal "rent-a-mob" tactics for years but never expected it to go so public, so matter-of-fact. Would Orwell be laughing or spinning in his grave at this news?
