    Republican voters claim to distrust government. They think Washington is a source of lies, corruption, and incompetence.

    But the truth is: they trust their government leaders deeply. Look at the threads on this board.

    They overwhelmingly Love their party's government leaders - whom they trust, defend, and protect.

    You don't see nearly as many pro Obama threads. The Left opposed Lyndon Johnson, a sitting president prior to his lame duck status.

    Republicans would never do this. They tend to trust their party's GOVERNMENT leaders deeply.

    They love Reagan. They accepted - and still believe - the Washington narrative of the Cold War.

    They trusted Bush. They accepted the Washington narrative of the War on Terror.

    Watch how dutifully they fall in line behind Romney.

    They never question spending when their party has the presidency - unless that president has entered lame duck status.

    When Bush said he was going to rebuild the Arab world in America's image, nobody on the Right questioned whether Washington was competent enough to pull it off.

    The Right trusts Government deeply.

    Why?

    What will happen to the Tea Party once President Romney is sworn in?

    Will they continue to question Washington spending, or will they become cheerleaders and defenders of the power which controls Washington?

    Republicans see government as important to "enforce" their "religious" views. Policing women's vaginas. Arresting people who protest. Starting wars like Iraq.

    Rebuilding the country. Education. Disaster relief. That's how Democrats see government. Republicans see those as a waste of money.

    Perhaps they'll become Keynesians:
