Paul Weyrich – “I don’t want everybody to vote” (Goo Goo)


Here is Paul Weyrich laying it all out for us from a 1980 video clip.

Paul Weyrich, “father” of the right-wing movement and co-founder of the Heritage Foundation, Moral Majority and various other groups tells his flock that he doesn’t want people to vote. He complains that fellow Christians have “Goo-Goo Syndrome”: Good Government. Classic clip from 1980. This guy still gives weekly strategy sessions to Republicans nowadays.


I was going to ask the rhetorical question of whether or not this is what the average follower of the Heritage Foundation or the Moral Majority accepts as an underlying philosophy. I then realized that I have read a number of letters to the editor and comments on the internet to realize that at least some of these people are thoroughly aware of this, and that they approve of it.
