Woman and children don't read too scarry....What if the GOP got what they want

Many times I think what would like be live with an unencumbered GOP.

Schools would be privatized,
teachers unions banned and we would be teaching to the lowest common denominator.

Abortion would be illegal.

We would have a flat tax where those with the most would pay the least.

Religion would be taught in schools and prayers would be set by the local school board.

Science taught would be up to the local clergy.

Firefighters ,police and jails would all be privatized if you ran out of money your house could burn down or the police would not show up.

All the poor would be put in labor camps so that they would have to earn their welfare or government benefits.

Corporations would pay no taxes and would control all elections

Wake up America these guys are not only dangerous but also crazy.

2. It would be a return to mideval feudalism

with overlords and serfs, nothing in between.

The only difference would be replace "liege lord" with "corporation."

9. well forget guns. right now the gun issue is a ruse to rile up the useful idiots but once the get

 

really in control public ownership of guns will be illegal- you corporate overlords arent going to want you to be able to shoot them so they will come and "take yer gunz"
the irony here is that they feel they need to keep the guns cause the gvmnt will take them so they support the party that , once they gain full control, will come take their gunz.
useful idiots

5. And everyone except the

wealthy would be required to go to some church of the overlords' choosing to be indoctrinated in their propaganda, Also, crimes against women would not be called such, and church could also tax you. And a host of other shit i don't even want to think about.

6. It would be

Hell to live in this country. But I believe, many would rise up eventually and there would be revolution, from the people who just couldn't take it any longer.

The other night I watched a couple of movies. I watched one about the Lincoln Assassination and the movie "Glory", about the Civil War. I also watched a documentary on Gettysburg. Its amazing how bloody and brutal the Civil War had been.

7. Have you been reading Charles Dickens again?

Whenever I think of what the utopian GOP world would look like, I think of the times of Dickens.

8. Welcome to DU, coljam!

Glad you're here! EXCELLENT points you make. Stop and think - just what a nightmare scenario this would be. This every-man-for-himself attitude would trump all. And they'd trumpet it far and wide as a "Christian" nation.
