The Republicans are not only anti-scientific though. They are also totally against history – hence their constant rewriting of it. They are against economic reality, hence their repeated attempts at trickle down style economics, after every previous one failed to produce results. They are completely out of touch with the rest of the world, hence their
paranoid use of the military against imaginary enemies world wide.
