Reader: Herman Melville Quote Defines Conservative Mentality

Categories: Broward News
Today on the Juice, we sought to explain some of Gov.-elect Rick Scott's ideas for his upcoming governorship. Come to find out, all his plans are typical of conservatism and involve blaming the less-fortunate Floridians. 

One frequent reader cleverly defined Scott's mentality with a quote by Herman Melville, deceased American novelist and poet.

"Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed."
Herman Melville

Is there a quote that more accurately describes the mentality of a conservative? Always looking to blame the poor, while the wealthy pillage, plunder and send our jobs overseas.
