I spend a lot of time denigrating the Republican Party.
Not that there aren’t plenty of things to complain about on the Democratic side.
I hear all the time how both parties are the same. It doesn’t matter which one you chose.
But I think it does……………………
……………………………..While the Democrats have their share of crooks and liars; the Republican Party is the one with a well-publicized plan; an actual agenda that clearly states their intentions to impoverish the middle class and essentially allow the poor to die off.
Less taxes for us; less wages for you.
More freedom for us; more morally approved restrictions for you.
Guns for us.
Guns for you? Yes, yes. Guns for you too. Heh. Heh. Heh. Wink wink.
Luxury and pampering for us; cold, hard misery for you.
Daddy’s money for us; “Personal Responsibility” for you.
While hard working Americans are roused to rage against those less fortunate than themselves.
Lazy! Malingering! Selfish!
Never sick, unlucky, in need of help.
But the real cause of much (not all) of this poverty and degradation is the Authoritarian Class we call;
Conservative (meaning; “disposed to preserve existing conditions, institutions, etc., or to restore traditional ones, and to limit change”)
The first change they were resistant to was the change from the British Monarchy to our “Democracy” because these Conservatives didn’t just wake up last week and form their ideas.
Their ideas are old. As old as man. At least as old as the ancient Israelites who demanded of God that he give them a king to rule over him.
Those who held these notions about themselves (not fit decide for themselves); about the ability and incorruptibility of others because of wealth or power; passed those notions down to their children and on to any they could convince.
They (conveniently) went “hand in hand” or “hammer on head” with another group of people also calling themselves “Conservative”.
But this second group has no lack of confidence.
They have every confidence.
Confidence in their ability to deceive and control all of those other “Conservatives” meandering about the field just chewing their cud.
They claim that they have the same interests as these “Follower Conservatives”; and indeed they do have a common enemy.
Their enemy is anyone who thinks.
