The republican party has become a terrorist organization hell bent on destroying our country.

A hidden coup in going on in this country by the republican party and the rich monied interests (Koch's, Singers etc) Chris Matthews is right about them wanting to overthrow this government by crashing the economy and blaming it on President Obama. And I just read that the SCOTUS is going to hear another case to do away with campaign finance limits. They (the republicans) know they have nothing to offer the American people. They have basically thrown out any sensible thinking old time conservatives and now only have the fire breathing crazies in their party. The only way they can win is by lying, stealing and cheating. People showed in 2012 that all the money spent by the rich didn't change the outcome in their favor. The republicans had to gerrymander in their republican states to win the house. And all these tea party governors from the 2010 debacle who are slashing and burning their states and giving tax breaks to the rich are in for a real rude awakening in 2014. People are pissed and they will come out in droves to vote them out of office. No amount of horrible commercials radio ads and mailers are going to save them except in those states with uneducated ignorant voters who will get what they deserve. Fox, Rush and the right wing media are slowly in the conscious of the American people becoming laughing stocks with their over the top lying caraway reporting.

That said, I think the SCOTUS will not go along this time. Legacy is beginning to affect them, I see Roberts and Kennedy joining with the more liberal wing of the court affirming campaign limits and maybe taking the bite out of citizens united. But in the meantime we have to do everything in our power to get more people registered and get them to vote out these crazies in 2014 before they destroy this country or overtake in a monied coup.

1. to be fair, their goal isn't to destroy the country, it is to strip-mine it for all its value

and leave it's bones like a vulture does on the side of the road.

4. The GOP's main objective isn't necessarily to destroy the country,

but to ultimately hoard cash, no matter what it takes and no matter who it hurts in the process.
