Response to Coyotl (Original post)

1. I've said it before and I will say it again.

Republicans hate Democracy. They believe that it is a terrible form of government. They believe that the privileged should make the rules - the 'makers' if you will - and that the rest of us - the 'takers' - exist simply to serve the will of the privileged few. Until you understand that, you will never understand the Republicans. Its not that they are trying to 'cheat', it is that they honestly and sincerely believe that government exists to to protect and help the 1% and that is the natural order of things and that they other 99% exist solely to help redistribute wealth upwards.

Back in the early days of railroading, if you were killed on the job, the reward to your family was that your son was offered your job. If you didn't have a son, well, tough. That's the Republican mentality. And until we realize that is what they are all about and make a drastic change in our voting patterns and destroy the party, nothing will change.
