-- The following are NOT conservative principles, they are NOT planks in the Republican Party platform, and they are NOT planks in the Illinois Republican Party platform. People who talk and act like they are harm all conservatives and harm all Republicans. - Dave Diersen
www.gopillinois.com
-- Demonize/denigrate GM, Ford, and Chrysler; demonize/denigrate their products; demonize/denigrate their employees; demonize/denigrate their retirees; demonize/denigrate their suppliers; demonize/denigrate their stockholders; demonize/denigrate those who sell their products; demonize/denigrate those who own their products; demonize/denigrate those who service their products; demonize/denigrate etc.
-- Drive GM, Ford, and Chrysler into Chapter 11 bankruptcy and then into Chapter 7 bankruptcy
-- Demonize/denigrate all unions, demonize/denigrate all union members, but especially demonize/denigrate the UAW and its members
-- Argue that the design, engineering, production, distribution, marketing, and servicing of the vehicles that America needs is NOT vital to America's national security
-- Turn over control of the design, engineering, production, distribution, marketing, and servicing of all the vehicles that America needs to foreign companies, that is, to foreign countries

USA TODAY
-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: Democrats are overjoyed that some Republicans seem to want to take full credit for driving GM, Ford, and Chrysler out of business because Democrats know full well that driving GM, Ford, and Chrysler out of business will immediately turn the recession into a full blown depression -- a full blown depression that the Democrats can and will blame on Republicans
