The article is satire, but the idea is not a joke! It is for real! From Reagan to the Bush administration's final months of plunder, the Republicans have been advancing their conservative agenda (revolution). Afraid that President Obama's election and the changing demographics signals a permanent change in the political landscape, they have stepped up their efforts to privatize everything. They are afraid they will be socially and politically disenfranchised, and it is the end of the Republican Party. Read The Wrecking Crew by Thomas Frank. "He shows how conservatie leaders, dedicated to a doctrine of government-by-entrepreneurship, proceeded to sell off the state, channeling the profits to cronies and loyalists. Frank documents the consequences of enshrining the free market as the logic of the state."
