New Republican Goal – PLEASE SHARE

The Republican National Committee is currently conducting a “full autopsy” of what went wrong in the 2012 Election for President of the United States.

Members of the RNC are confident that with their new strategy in place to block any and all efforts by Barack Hussein Obama in the next four years from enacting any of his communist inspired policies, they will strengthen their standing with their core constituencies.

They believe that they can show all their God-fearing, red-bloodied real Americans that the party can and will be reinvigorated in time for the 2016 Election.

In fact, they are saying emphatically that with this new strategy in place, they will successfully put the right kind of man into the White House in 2016 and that  Barack Hussein Obama will be blocked from gaining another term as President.

Rush Limbaugh is already gearing up his talking points, Donald Trump is getting his hair coiffured, Grover Norquist is putting new age, electronic locks on his “Pledge” safe, and Mitt Romney is getting a new aerodynamically designed roof carrier for Seamus.

Theatrics

Harvard Law School graduate Mitt Romney remembered this from his legal training:

If you have the facts: argue the facts.

If you don’t have the facts: argue the law.

If you don’t have the facts or the law: jump up and down, interrupt, and shout a lot.

That is what he did last night. He figuratively jumped up and down, he interrupted the President and the moderator, he gesticulated, and he pontificated.  The one thing he didn’t do was to tell us anymore about what his policies will be if he gets elected president or what specific things he will do in the Oval Office.  It was all trust me.  Like a used car salesman.

My personal takeaway?  We learned nothing new about Mitt Romney’s proposed policies (other than he admitted that he will change Medicare into a voucher program) to, amongst other things, pay for his seven trillion dollar saddle on the Middle Class.  Mitt did tell us one other thing.  He will even go after Big Bird.

The President, on the other hand, calmly laid out what he has done to try to dig out of the economic cesspool that the last Republican president left us with.  You remember him, George W. Bush.  Political parties since time started have always celebrated their senior statesmen.  Where is George?  Could it be that they do not want you to compare Bush economics and its disastrous effect on the Middle Class with Romney’s attempts to finish George’s effort to get rid of the Middle Class?

What do you want? To be entertained or informed?  You decide.

Finally, another politician once used the above law school maxim very effectively for maximum theatrics.

One final thing that Romney will probably get rid of.  If you look at his lapel pin, the American flag – you know the one that hundreds of thousands of our Nation’s bravest men and women have died to defend – is apparently not good enough for him.  His lapel pin has an embellishment contrary to the laws of our land, but in Amerika under Romney will we all be differentiated by different embellishments to distinguish one from another.  So what will the 47 percenters have to wear under the Romney/Ryan administration?

Will you have to declare your religion on your lapel pin, your gender identification, your nationality, your political party, your race?  I am sure that Republicans will dismiss this out of hand as a silly rant, but throughout history this is how it begins — one small symbol.  Remember the little symbol from eastern mythology that meant “to be good” that was adopted by a political party in Bavaria in the 1930s?  It was just a symbol after all, so what’s the beef?

The United States of Edelson?

A recent poll says that up to 90 million voters do not plan to vote in the November elections.  The reasons given include that they are disgusted with the way things are going in the United States, their vote won’t count anyway, or they are too busy.

Not  voting is, in fact, voting.

In fact, what the Edelsons of the corporate boardrooms don’t want you to do is vote.  Then they can have their way with your wallet.

What disenchanted voters are doing by abdicating their right to vote is to vote in favor of an election that has seen a tsunami of corporate largesse flowing into the campaigns, particularly into the GOP campaign.  If you do not believe that “corporations are people” then you need to take action as a natural person.

If you don’t, then people like Sheldon Adelson, a big Las Vegas casino mogul, who has pledged to spend 100 million dollars to get Mitt Romney elected will have won.  You may ask why Adelson is willing to spend this fortune to elect one person?  Basically it boils down to a business or corporate decision: If Mitt Romney is elected, Sheldon Edelson stands to save 2.3 billion dollars in tax benefits.  That is a return on investment of 2,300%; not a bad investment for Mr. Edelson.

But maybe not such a good outcome for you.

According to an independent study by the Brookings Institute, tax breaks to the very weathy, such as Mr. Edelson, must be made up somewhere and that somewhere will be thee and me.  Middle income taxpayers will likely see an increase in taxes of $2,000 to pay for Mr. Edelson and other wealthy taxpayers investment.

Do not acquiesce to these tax bullies.  I learned early in life that the only way that bullies can be defeated is to stand upo to them.

Let your voice be heard on November 6th.  You have nothing to lose by voting and maybe $2,000 per year to lose if you don’t.

The Oligarchy Just Got Oligarchier

Mitt Romney just announced that Paul Ryan (R. Wisconsin) will be his running mate in the November election.  Ryan, a two term congressman, who is the chairman of the House Budget Committee is known for his fierce determination to cut domestic programs that provide assistance to the poor.  As such he is the darling of conservatives who want to rob from the poor and give to the rich.

So now Romney Hood has his Friar Tuck as his band of merry oligarchs march on to emulate the Bourbons of France.  We might as well get used to eating cake.

Romney Ryan sounds like a likely screen name for a …..
