Party first, country last


“The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.” – Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.)

Residents of Kentucky are among the poorest in the nation, by the way.

The GOP/Tea Party and Libertarians have turned obstructionism into an art. It’s been their only governing strategy since Obama took office. Obscene, considering it’s their policies and actions that put us in this depression. Their policies that have made the rich richer and the middle class poorer. Treasonous, really.

They have only one goal, and it’s not job creation or stabilizing the economy. It’s Get Obama! Stonewall and cripple any kind of positive progress in Congress. Make sure the country fails. Strategically kick issues down the road … timing is everything in the GOP/TP game.

“There are no rules in a knife fight,” Grover Norquist instructed his young Republican audience at a College Republican National Committee convention. Yeah – Grover Norquist, the anti-tax, anti-government fanatic who’s been making the GOP pledge allegiance to his special interest group and lobbying firm “Americans for Tax Reform.”

“Take the pledge, win the primary. Take the pledge, win the general. Break the pledge, lose,” Norquist warns. And 236 Republican representatives and 41 Senators signed on, agreeing to close their minds and disregard their constituents.

If that’s not illegal, it sure the heck should be. Grover Norquist, founding chairman of the Islamic Free Market Institute. Anything-for-a-buck Norquist.

And we are the pawns in their game. Being perfectly steered and manipulated by their Psy Ops political warfare media machine. They know people have come to have the attention span of gnats, have succumbed to emotionalism over reason, and that fact checking is impossible for the average person. What is the truth? Where are the unadulterated honest-to-goodness facts? I mean the real ones.

Republicans are masters at getting people to vote against their own self interests and brainwashing them into loving their poverty. The poorest states in this nation are all run by Republicans.

They like their constituents uneducated and needy. Makes pushing their business-at-all-costs agenda easier. No unions, no OSHA, no EPA, no unemployment insurance, no rules or regulations to safeguard the public and its lands from total exploitation.

The greedy are openly taking control. Vampires poised to suck what’s left of the good life out of America.
