Conservative core assumptions

I’ve discovered a new podcast called Best of the Left.  It’s a digest of many of the major liberal-progressive radio, TV, and podcast programs.  I find I’ve heard many of the segments before, but in a recent podcast, he pulled out some “vintage” Bill Moyers from soon after the Citizen’s United case was decided.

Moyers lays out how some Congressmembers were already trying to counter the decision, especially:

its core assumptions, that money is speech and corporations have the same rights as people when it comes to spending it.

That one line helps clarify for me two major differences between liberals and conservatives.

Watch the full segment.
