McConnell "betrays conservatives?" 
 
How about every other American?  A lot of Americans do not consider themselves conservatives.   But they are for free markets, upholding the constitution and limiting government.

Today, the identity of "conservative" is as jumbled and confused as is the identity of "liberal."  Besides which it's self-defeating to make the effort to rein in government a solely conservative cause.  It is not. 
 
We have a 2014 election facing us. We must appeal to an electorate some of whom do not consider themselves conservatives. We are not going to make significant strides if we isolate ourselves into a camp that does not include all Americans.
 
It is more fruitful and more widely inviting if one names the principles that guide us -- such as individual rights, limited government and free markets.  Let the Retrogrades  (AKA "Progressives") yell about their totalitarian goals.  We must come together as Americans for freedom.
 
McConnell, in my judgement, is an careerist politician, an establishment Republican that must be voted out of office. There is a good possibility that he will be.

Yikes !!! Ocasio-Cortez: We Need A ‘Multigendered, Multigeographic’ United States

The United States of America needs to be “multigendered” and “multigeographic,” according to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who endorsed fellow socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at the “Bernie’s Back Rally” in New York on Saturday.

The freshman lawmaker and “Squad” member officially endorsed Sanders during a rally in Queensbridge Park in Long Island City, New York, on Saturday and called for more diversity in the U.S., arguing that it should not only be “multiracial” and “multigenerational” but “multigeographic” and “multigendered.”

“We need a United States that really, truly, and authentically is operated, owned, and decided by working – and all – people in the United States of America,” Ocasio-Cortez said to applause.

“That is what it – it is multiracial, multigendered, multigenerational, and multigeographic,” she said, failing to elaborate on what that specifically looks like.

“We have to come together, not ignoring our differences but listening to them, prioritizing them, understanding injustice,” she continued.

The socialist lawmaker also implied that rampant racism is still alive and well in the U.S., telling the crowd that it is essential to understand “that we operate in a context where slavery evolved into Jim Crow, evolved into mass incarceration, [and] evolved into the realities we have today.”
