My conservative friends and readers, please tell me how these people represent a fair and democratic America? Tell me where in the constitution corporations rights usurp that of the people. Why is you are blind to the fact that these TeaParty and Republican candidates are the proverbial wolf in lambs clothing? I would really like an answer to that.
Can you not see they are fascists, plain and simple. Before you answer that, if you don’t know what fascism is look it up – Hitler and Mussolini were fascists. Seriously now, if you don’t understand the “ism’s” and what fascism is, or have forgotten please study political science for a refresher because fascism is the road where the Repulicons and Teabaggers are taking us. This is a very dangerous situation. And I’m not being mean, I’m just stating a fact that seems to escape a lot of people on the right, people who have fallen for the emotional talking points the right wing media has used to propagandize conservatives followers for over 30 years now.
I’m really only trying to bring people together under one progressive banner, for the best interest of the working and middle class. Not the wealthy, fascist corporations who own the entire conservative party and many of the Democrats too.
Once again, please listen to Norman Goldman and also go to his website for the four point plan to save America. He’s trying to bring everyone together under the same party, even if it means creating a new political party. Also Randi Rhodes helps so many people understand whats happening and I hear it everyday when people call in to thank her for being on the side of the working people, the same people who are my readers.
Look the truth is that we all really want the same things in life, but the Republicans have spent 30 years dividing us by calling us names and denigrating anyone who cared about people or the environment. They turned us into something evil and bad, when it couldn’t be further from the truth. Dividing America was the plan when the right wing launched the Fox News media empire in conjunction with Murdoch, America’s #1 brainwashing machine. Divide and conquer, the oldest game in the world.
Research has shown that people who get their news from Fox media are the least informed segment of society, because Fox constantly lies and distorts the facts. Besides its not news, it’s entertainment thrown in with editorializing current events. The news doesn’t take sides, it only states the facts.
And no Mitt, corporations are not people and were not recognized under the constitution as people – only by fascist Supreme Court Judges. Please, if you don’t understand what these terms mean then study fascism we’re already there and need to be brought back under a democracy. These candidates the Republicon party are offering up surely aren’t the answer, they are puppets for the corporate ruling elite who don’t want to pay their fair share. These people are waging class warfare on the middle class in an attempt to destroy the social safety net, and they successfully created a whole new class of people who are poverty stricken after eight years of Bush. And now they want to cut all benefits to people who need them the most and then steal the last traunches of money left to steal – Social Security, Medicare and Pension Funds.
I guess the corporate elite weren’t happy after the crash in 2008 when there weren’t long lines of people waiting to get bread rations and that things didn’t look as bad as they did in the Great Depression because of the social safety net created by FDR. So now they want to destroy it so when they crash the economy again, they will have a whole new class of desperate serfs willing to work for $5 a day and they can have a third world nation full of cheap labor. With people so desperate they will have to send their children 5 yrs and older to work to help pay the bills.
Why do you think they’re eliminating child labor laws in some states? Yep, in Georgia children 6-11 yrs are now having to work the fields picking blueberry’s because their racist governor ran off all the immigrant farm workers. You have to wonder if that wasn’t the plan. Oh yeah, almost forgot that in Washington state 6-11yr old children are working the fields picking strawberry’s! And they’re perfect for the job because they have small hands and can get to the berrys easier. If you need a source, I heard that on the Mike Malloy show – someone who’s actually honest because he comes from the old school of integrity, which seems to be non-existent on the right nowadays.
Folks this is not about budgeting, if they seriously wanted to balance the budget they would RAISE REVENUES by making corporations and the wealthy pay their fair share with a little “tax fairness” instead of doing it off the backs of the poor and middle class. They would also close corporate loop holes and tax corporations for off shoring jobs, companies that are sitting on trillions of dollars in profits and can afford to pay their fair share!! And anyone who believes the propaganda from right wing that says anything different is F’**KING BRAINWASHED, SELF SERVING AND UN-AMERICAN!! I’m sorry but you’re misinformed by people who are paid millions of dollars a year to lie to you, so please stop listening to right wing, mainstream media!
Stop drinking the koolaid and wake up to the fact that the only people who are really telling the truth anymore are Comedy Central’s John Stewart and Steven Colbert, the Progressive talk radio hosts and the alternative news on the internet. Mass media is not where you find truth anymore.
I spent way more time on this than originally intended, but my conservative readers have their knickers in a twist because I keep posting information about what’s going on with the right wing. Well, it’s the dangerous ugly truth that’s destroying this country and as a truthseeker I call the shots as I see them.
No decision made in hate or fear is EVER a good one, and everything the GOP’s right wing stands for is hate for Obama and anyone on the left. So much so that in 2.5 years they have refused to vote on one single bill that would have helped Americans get out of this mess and they vowed not to do anything to help Obama/America because that would hurt their chances of winning the 2012 election! Where’s the jobs bill now that they took over Congress? Nowhere in sight.
How can people who hate government ever be expected to do a good job at governing and why would you hire someone who hates the job they’re applying for? Think about it. And how can anyone vote for a party that has done nothing but try to destroy this country since 2000? They set this country running off a cliff and handed it to Obama in 2008, then only months later as America was crashing they went “See, he did it….wahhhh it’s Obama’s fault!!? What fucking liars. That soooo pisses me off that you people are so blind you can’t even see the game, or are you on electric koolaid or what? My God wake up and stop voting against your own best interests.
Rick Perry Says Social Security and Medicare Are Unconstitutional
Romney Defends Raising Retirement Age To Protect Corporate Tax Breaks: ‘Corporations Are People, My Friend’
By Ian Millhiser on Aug 11, 2011 at 12:51 pm
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) just completed a damaging campaign stop in Iowawhere audience members responded angrily to his plans, and Romney frequently responded belligerently to their anger. In one of the most contentious exchanges, Romney defended his belief that we “should consider a higher retirement age” for Social Security and Medicare to preserve tax breaks for corporations:
ROMNEY: There’s various ways of [preserving Social Security and Medicare’s solvency]. One is we could raise taxes on people. That’s not the way . . .
AUDIENCE: Corporations! Corporations!
ROMNEY: Corporations are people, my friend.
AUDIENCE: No they’re not.
ROMNEY: Of course they are. Everything corporations earn ultimately goes to people. Where do you think it goes?
AUDIENCE: It goes into your pocket!
ROMNEY: Whose pockets? Whose pockets? People’s pockets. Human beings, my friend.
Romney’s antagonists are right that corporate money flows right into Romney’s pockets. Indeed, Romney has taken more money from corporate and other lobbyists than all the other GOP candidates put together, and this will likely only be the beginning for Romney if he becomes the GOP nominee.
Ever since the Supreme Court revealed that it shares Romney’s inability to distinguish between corporations and actual human beings, corporations have lined up to buy GOP victories in elections across the country. After Citizens United, conservative secret donors outspent progressives 8 to 1 in the 2010 election cycle.
So Romney has good reason to favor tax breaks for corporations over maintaining the current Medicare and Social Security retirement age — corporate America is doing a whole lot more to line his pockets than America’s seniors ever will.
