It truly shows you how twisted things are when providing people with more choices is "elitism". How if you don't choose to live in sprawl like everyone else you are anti-american and you need to conform with others by living in sprawl in order to be considered a "rugged-individualist". No choice is freedom, conformity is individualism. If that isn't Orwellian double speak than what is? People who believe this nonsense are either brainwashed drones, payed hacks or addicted to a political label like a crack addict to the point that narratives don't even have to make rational sense anymore, just be like a rabid dog foaming at the mouth to contrast yourself form your perceived foes.
Thus we have people believing that saying everyone should have the chance to go to college makes them a snob, that someone wanting the choice of taking public transit for themselves and others means they want to take choice away from others. I mean what next, Obama is seen petting kittens at a shelter and thus a pundit on talk radio says it is a sign that kittens are communists and you must support mass euthanasia of kittens to prove you are a true conservative?
I mean don't get me wrong, I respect rational conservative arguments and have rational conservatives as friends but this kind of nonsense needs to be stopped. Some people are just mindless drones who use political labels without having any true rational comprehension of them, it is just 100% pure reactionary paranoid nonsense.
