Contributor John Liming has a few things to say on the Republican Party and the “blank-eyed moronic robot clones” it creates in its wake of delusional politics.
First of all, you don’t do the working classes or the poor any favors with a plan that cuts programs designed to help these folks by as much as $5.3 trillion and then giving tax breaks that amount to as much as $4.3 trillion to the very wealthiest of all Americans, that fabled 1% you might have heard of.
In other words, you don’t help the poor by taking away their food so that the highest residents on the food chain can have cheap slop for their hogs.
And why would some of the more radical Conservatives push such programs? What is a justifiable reason for robbing the poor to enrich the already rich?
Some of the stories I have heard tell me that some of the Righties believe that austerity forced upon those who have little and have great needs is a lesson in, of all things, moral development.
It seems that some crazies feel that taking away the support system used by the very needy serves some kind of insane idea that Spartan deprivation leads to stronger moral fiber and character development.
My Dad, himself a fanatic Republican til the day he died, believed with all his heart that it was an honor to be poor and struggling and that to desire improvement in his personal wealth was some kind of immoral thing. He had learned the reverse psychology of his Right Wing masters well. It was, somehow, alright for his “Betters” to have the wealth of the world, but it was shameful for him to want a share.
It is that kind of aristocratic elitism that is, even now, trying to get it’s grubby, grasping, greedy hands on the reins of American Government again in 2012 and I think their entire motivation is based on a desire to rob, to loot and to pillage and plunder because I sure as Heck haven’t seen much evidence that they have any kind of substantial plans to help those who need help the most climb up out of despair.
Instead, the idea seems to be to cut as many American anti-poverty programs down to the bare bones and then beyond and to shift the money that supports those programs to tax breaks and incentives for people at the top of the food chain who have absolutely no need of much of anything at all. I think this kind of attitude is, at best, barbaric!
But some of them have been selling the dickens out of this tripe and the gullible seem to be jumping on their bandwagon of lies, deceptions and treacheries in growing numbers.
Because bloggers like myself have been blowing the whistle on some of these draconian agendas from the Right and the Radical Right, some of them are calling us “Brainwashed.” Look who is talking is all I can say to that! The Rightie Myth Machine is the greatest brainwash mechanism invented in the modern age of electronic communications in my opinion. It is, in fact, so efficient in it’s ability to create blank-eyed moronic robot clones of itself and it’s progenitors that it’s victims have no idea at all of what has happened to them.
So what I think I am looking at is a bunch of poor deluded souls who have listened to bullcrap from the Right for so long they have started to accept it as Gospel and I believe the day will surely come when they find themselves totally betrayed by those in which they are misplacing their trust and what a day of mourning that will be!
This one particularly obnoxious Right Wing idiot that used to like to haunt my blog and taunt me asked me, “What will all you Libs do when all your government entitlement programs fiinally come crashing down?”
After thinking it over, there was only one answer I could think of: “When our government entitlement programs come crashing down, I believe it will be because of something the far right extreme has done or engineered and once the Public understands what has happened and who is responsible, there will be one Heck of a political price for Righties to pay for their treachery against The American People.
And make no mistake about it, folks, it is my firm belief and opinion that Radical American Conservatism, 2012-style, represents one of the most insidiously destructive threats to American Democracy of any ideology in a hundred years.
I think the whole Extremest Political Machine runs on bitterness, hatred, feelings of inadequacy, gall, and that like most such things tends to not only consume itself but everything that crosses it’s path.
And I think it tries to do the whole act on the pretense of Faith, Family and Moral Values and I think that it has done more to expose itself to the light of truth this time around than ever before… because… it is desperate. I think it is losing steam and it has become dangerously desperate to justify itself and perhaps to even survive as a viable political ideology in Modern America.
Let’s all prove them to be right about themselves.
Let’s vote Democrat in November, 2012.
That would frost a few willies wouldn’t it?
