Many Corporate Persons are heavily in league with the Republicans (It's been reported that 60% of large, now international U.S. corporations pay no taxes) No doubt, the power mad, ignorant and delusional Tea Party is onto Koch. In the Congressional GOP, they openly stated its' number one priority is to bring down President Barack Obama. The Tea Party faction concentrates on bringing down the nation financially and allowing Wall Street to snatch the money from Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
Since the GOP has the same goals as al Qaida, the Republican Congress and Party should be considered as Domestic Terrorists and the Tea Party faction should be considered Economic Terrorists. Remember the Oath the U.S. Congress swore to uphold: "I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States (they want to tear apart the Constitution) against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear that true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion."
Evasion is what the GOP is really good at doing. Senator Kyl of Arizona: "It wasn't intended to be a factual statement." It was intended to be a 97% lie. So why should any American accept anything a Republican says. Out and out lies are the most important tool used by today's Republicans. For instance, before the 2010 election: "JOBS, JOBS, JOBS, are the most important issue that Americans want us to go after" Not one Jobs Bill has been introduced in the House by the lying GOP. The Republicans introduced Bills cutting jobs in the United States in favor of the off shore corporations and cutting all entitlement programs. All the GOP House members will become quite rich before even leaving Congress.
CITIZENS-UNITED! The first Gang of Five Republican Supreme Court Injustices' busted the U.S. Constitution wide open by illegally stopping a presidential vote count and selecting George W. Bush, the phony cowboy, to ruin our nation and perhaps the World.
The Gang of 5 also made the Bush versus Gore, an unprecedented decision and a one time only judgment. In other words, this GOP law is not to be used as precedent because if the law was fairly looked into, it would be struck down.
Today's most activists Gang of Five, probably the worst and most partisan justices in modern history, had no precedent to create their unprecedented new law. The case allowed corporations and labor unions to make independent expenditures for or against political candidates. The partisan Gang of Five also deemed corporations could give the expenditures in any amount and give the money anonymously. The Gang added the labor unions to show the 5 justices were fair and balanced just like Fox, regarding Citizen United.
Wait a minute... If the GOP Governors are successful in busting the unions, what will happen to the Democratic Party? That's it! Bust the unions and get rid of the major money for the Democratic Party. If the unions are destroyed, thus affecting the Democrats badly, won't that end the alleged equal balance of corporations and unions? If the unions are busted, how do the People have any major money for free speech? Unfortunately, the Republicans will find a way to become the ruling party. Also the GOP will make the Bush tax cut permanent, giving the GOP their long sought after dream to finally have the ability to drown the government in a bathtub. No more regulations. No taxes that corporations had to pay in the past. The middle-class will have to be responsible for paying the taxes until there's no more middle-class. Let U.S. Citizens die if they have no jobs or homes. America becomes a third world nation.
The U.S. infrastructure will fall apart until the International for profit companies from China, Germany, India, and Mexico or where ever all our U.S. jobs have been moved will move in. The only manufacturing left in America will continue to be military weapons and war equipment.
If you want to confront a Republican, ask them for one factual thing that the GOP has done for the American people. Beside Dwight Eisenhower, who at least built national highways and warned the country to watch out for the Military Industrial complex. In reality there is nothing the GOP can point to, since they openly hate government and worship money.
Why in the world would 'we the people' turn our government over to a party that hates government and wants to privatize the entire nation? The GOP must now be looking into a program to privatize the air we now breathe for free. What will the GOP do with the pollution the corporations that they represent? Recall may do the trick.
