24. I believe GOP governors know that their policies deliver poor results to the 99%.

I also believe they know that their policies deliver very, very, VERY well to the 1%.

It's what's been happening since the mid to late 70's in this country.

GOP governors are fine with both of these outcomes since they personally benefit handsomely.

So, I might argue against labeling them insane for the reason you state while still agreeing with you
that they are indeed psychopaths and sociopaths which puts them in the same group as the insane
as far as I'm concerned.

Look at it from the sociopaths perspective. If they give tax breaks to the wealthy while cutting benefits to the
masses like they are currently proposing, the deficit will skyrocket and they can repeat the process repeatedly
in the near future, using the same talking points, until they have created the feudal society that they clearly believe should exist.

They are going to keep taking us down this path unless we can wake up more of this country, get them informed
to fight for their own economic self interest, and get them motivated to help us MAKE elected Democrats implement the
platform they supposedly represent.

At this point, electing Democrats is only the very beginning step to seeing change come to this country. We're going to
have to work hard for it.
