    For those who have not read John W. Dean's "Conservatives Without Conscience" or Bob Altemeyer's "The Authoritarians," , I highly recommend both books in order to better understand Right Wing Authoritarianism. Dr. Altemeyer offers his on line for all of us to read in order to understand and learn to counter them. His advice?

    From this link above (referring to the '08 elections, but it holds true for the present, as well):

    Even more ridiculous is the idea that the GOP is CONSERVATIVE anymore. The fact that they veered away from conservatism is the fucking problem.

    Since when has the desire to significantly reduce government spending and taxing, empowering the people and ending government corruption been authoritarian?
