6. Actually, Kansas 50X is what they want.

12-Step Playbook:

1. Get elected and in charge.
2. Cut budgets to bare bones level, citing need to lower taxes and reduce government involvement in people's lives.
3. Observe government departments failing due to budget cuts. Play lots of golf and spend time on Faux News bragging on your economic programs.
4. Blast government departments for failing in the media, and say that government doing anything is bad. Saturate news media with this mantra.
5. Privatize everything possible in government, starting with failing or stressed areas.
6. Drown as much of government as possible in bathtub.
7. See public enraged by lack of services, especially schools and roads.
8. Restore just enough government funding to quench public outrage.
9. Leave government job just before you're tarred and feathered, but first help elect another Republican.
10. Repeat Steps 1 through 9.
11. Take a cushy job with a large firm offering golden parachutes and/or become a right-wing media star.
12. Retire overseas or in a gated community with lots of security.
