It always amazes me how far the Republican Party will go to protect themselves from their misdeeds and the exposure to them. In the past 35 years, they have been pushed so far to the right of reality that there is nowhere else to go.
Since Ronald Reagan started the slide into the swamp, with his Reaganomics and "trickle down theory", we have amassed a debt so large we will never pay it off, at this time close to $20,000,000,000,000, (yes, 20 TRILLION dollars). He tripled the debt during his tenure on, you guessed it, THE MILITARY. Next came Bill Clinton, who got impeached because he lied about a blowjob. Didn't get convicted, but impeached nevertheless. He left office with a massive surplus and a booming economy.
So along comes GW BUSH and his trusty sidekick Dick Cheney and there went that surplus, in a heartbeat! 9/11, the Patriot Act, Medicare Part D, (unpaid for) 2 unnecessary wars, (unpaid for) and still going on 17 years later, with Cheney's Halliburton and Eric Prince's Blackwater making billions in profit (unpaid for), and the banking industry, because of criminal behavior, decides to collapse because they made so many greedy and stupid moves to take advantage of people who knew no better.
So we get through that disaster and elect Obama. A young, intelligent constitutional lawyer, an eloquent speaker with a bright thinking mind and an intelligence to match. And what do the Republicans do? Demonize him, accuse him of everything that they can think of, (none of it true), attempt to block anything he tries to accomplish, question his birthplace, call his family monkeys and other disgusting names, yet he maintains his and his family's dignity throughout the whole time he is in office. He saves the banking industry, the auto industry, the entire country from depression, and what does he get for it? More derision and ridicule!
You have been and are being played, by a political party whose sole and entire purpose is to subjugate, divide, and dumb down an entire population so that they can maintain their wealth and power over the masses. And 30% of you are falling for it!
I am proud to be among the 70% who aren't falling for it, and I will fight you the rest of my days to prevent you from accomplishing what you want, the complete and utter takeover of MY country!
