You have to be delusional to think that republicans have your best interests at heart as an average American. All politicians are corrupt, but they take the cake! At the same time Goldman-Sachs is charged with fraud and the democrats are trying to push through a financial reform bill to control the banks that destroyed our economy, the republican top leadership marches down to Wallstreet to meet with the very people who caused the crash.
Seriously? Having secret conversations to ask for directions from the corporations is bad enough, but physically walking down there to pay homage to your masters?
Look, it’s no secret that republicans for the longest time have been in the pocket of big business. They are the rich man’s party, the defenders of the status quo. As long as the status quo supports rich white men, they will fight to protect it. How do they get the poor average American to vote for them then? Religion. They wrap themselves in it and claim to be the party of “family values” and morality. The poor average Joe joins up out of gullibleness thinking he’s supporting the party of decency, then they screw him and blame the democrats. It’s all very cynical and calculated.
The republican leadership cries Obama isn’t being bipartisan. That’s bullshit on a stick. Obama and the democrats have bent over backwards time and time again trying to reach out to the republicans, and EVERY time they spit in their faces. The democrats have reached out so much, compromised so much, that it’s severely pissed off their base. The whole time they’re looking like fools because the joke’s on them.
You see, what they don’t understand is that it’s all part of a carefully crafted republican plan. Become the party of NO! and say NO! to everything no matter how good it might be. This way the democrats, who are pussies, will give and give and give until their bills truly are shit. Then the republicans will let it pass. When the worst happens because the bill is shit, the republicans will blame the democrats for passing it. They are doing it on purpose. Fuck the average working man, the party’s never really cared about them. They can easily be kept in line with their religion and fear tactics. Just conjure up some bullshit about that n***** president coming to kill you and they’ll froth at the mouth. The money is what’s important, so as long as we’re on our knees servicing Wallstreet, everything is ok.
