A MAN WITH A MEMORY SPEAKS TO CONSERVATIVES | 2001-03-10
The liberal media decide who is "respectable" and who isn't. No conservative can be respectable if he shows that he has a memory, which is a dangerous thing to liberals.
Take the two big issues right now. On the Clinton pardons, Democrats insist that Clinton got lots of money from those he pardoned, but there was no quid pro quo. In other words, the liberals say that there is no reason to think he did it for the money.
But every time the NRA or a business gives money to Republicans, Democrats quote the amount and say they are selling favors. No respectable conservative will ever remind them of that.
On the tax cut, liberals insist it will benefit the rich. But the liberals also insist that the rich don't pay their share of taxes. The fact that the tax cut helps the rich presupposes that the rich are paying their share of taxes, but no conservative will ever mention that.
Actually, very rich people can avoid a lot of tax. It is the small business or family farm that gets hit hard. That is why limousine liberals don't mind the heavy estate tax. They use tax deductible foundations to keep family control over their funds, and they have plenty left over for their descendant's personal use. We see this in the Rockefeller, Ford, and Mellon Foundations, for example.
