GOP: Bankruptcy Is Good For States But Not Individuals

Republicans want to allow state governments to go bankrupt so they can destroy civil service unions! Strange isn’t it that they fought tooth and nail to make it harder for individuals to declare bankruptcy! Former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is leading the fight. There is a method to their madness. They want to empower the corporate class to siphon off the life blood of middle class Americans.

The issue is to increase not just the finances of the rich but to undermine the security of the vast Silent Majority of Americans –  our great Middle Class! When the unions are undermined then the power of the corporate class interests grows since progressive politicians receive support from unions! With less better paying jobs available, the wages of all Americans can be reduced while the profits of our social betters increase! Ah yes this is what they call “Freedom”! The freedom to serve the Economic Royalists and their right wing social engineering experiment!

Republican’s Definition Of “Freedom” And It’s Danger To the Middle Class

When I hear Republicans talk about “freedom” I need to take a Rolaids because my stomach turns acidic. Tim Palenty used this terminology at a recent meeting of the conservative group CPAC! Actually this is classic Republican rhetoric!  The “Freedom” that they so prize is not freedom for the American Middle Class!

In this era where corporations are defined as “persons” I find my personal freedom under further attack! Just this year we have the record recalls of Toyota cars for multiple reasons.  Also the diabetes drug “Avandia” has been labeled by many as the cause of heart problems! CBS News says that the company that makes Avandia, “Glaxo Smith Kline” knew about the danger for years!

Republicans Against America

The Republicans were so happy when our nation lost it’s bid for the 2016 Olympics. (See video below). They even rejoiced saying Barrack Obama had lost his charisma! But their glee was short lived when our President received the Nobel Prize for Peace! You would think they would stand behind our President especially in this time of war! No instead they stand behind the CUT AND RUN CAPITALISTS who ship our jobs and technology to distant shores, often the enemies of America. They support Halliburton which has transferred it’s Corporate HQ to Dubai and whose subsidiary has caused the death of our soldiers by electrocution due to faulty base construction! But they rather target ACORN since that “sinister” organization is registering new voters that are not influenced by K-Street targeted ads.
