You say it well, and say it with passion.

Great Post

One of the things I've done at Shakespeare's Sister is never waver from referring to politically active conservative Christians who are interested in blurring (or, more accurately, removing) the separation of church and state as Dominionists, which is their proper name.

The Green Knight and a few other bloggers have started doing the same, and I've noticed that I've been getting an increasing number of hits from search engine look-ups of "Dominionist" or "Dominionism."

That my $.02 on the framing issue, for what it's worth. ;-)

"corporate feudalism" "dime-store economics" "cheap-labor conservatives"

"Cheap-labor conservative" is a moniker they will never shake, and never live down. Because it's exactly what they are. You see, cheap-labor conservatives are defenders of corporate America – whose fortunes depend on labor. The larger the labor supply, the cheaper it is. The more desperately you need a job, the cheaper you'll work, and the more power those "corporate lords" have over you. If you are a wealthy elite – or a "wannabe" like most dittoheads – your wealth, power and privilege is enhanced by a labor pool, forced to work cheap.
