The Right-Wing goal is to destroy everything America has created....
Edited on Fri Sep-30-05 11:00 PM by kentuck
in the last 75 years. Their ideas are not new. They are antiquated. They don't want to pay any taxes. They believe the progressive tax is part of the Communist Manifesto. They don't want any social programs. They believe charities can help people with all the help they may need. They do not believe in Social Security. They would return us to the days when more than half the elderly in this nation were below the poverty line, living pillar to post with their children or whomever could keep them. They do not believe in fair wages or the minimum wage. Witness the Bush plan to rebuild New Orleans with labor that would be paid less than the prevailing wages. They do not support public education. It could be argued they do not support any type of education. Witness their argument about "intelligent design"? No thinking American could go along with their radical agenda. But they are against thinking Americans also...

1. You know that...and I know that
and so do most of our elected leaders. NOW, when are they gonna say it....say it pretty much like you said it.

America does not like the truth about itself. And that is why she will fall.

4. America hasn't been told the truth about herself
Imagine one day, just one, where mass communication told the truth. You think America would want to revert back to cowering ignorance? No way.

We know the powerful stay that way by beating the masses in submission with ignorance. Most people don't feel they have any options but to live with the oppression, and so they stay ignorant.

I'm no better.

But if America had the choice, America would care and the globe would do a double spin on its axis.

3. They would become everything Europeans fled from
to form this country. Yes, the elitists brought slavery with them, our country was built on the backs of black slaves. But the GOP has their take on that, as giving them new opportunites. Today's republicans make you barf. W is a elitist neocon.

5. And the strange thing is . . .
. . . that they're completely and totally convinced that they're the ones trying to protect everything America built up. You can't shake them from that, either. They'll sit around ranting and raving about how the eeeevilllll left "hates America", but when you mention the court system, the media, the educational system, modern American culture, movies, music, literature, magazines, and that they're constantly bashing and lashing out at every bit of it. Somehow, though, they think that they're the one's who love all things American.

There's no way to make that point to most of them, though.

7. mention commercials on tv....
when they talk about how popular tv is fulla this or that, mention to them how it's the commericials that truly undermine all the old values etc, but as the commericials are for big biz, the so called conservatives turn into social radicals/extremists instantly

8. The Right-Wing Goal is pure GREED...Let's Understand That Once and For All
Their ideas are not new. They are antiquated.

Yup. Europe called it "aristocracy".

They don't want to pay any taxes.

They're unbelievably GREEDY.

They believe the progressive tax is part of the Communist Manifesto.

That's just one of their many excuses to hide their UNchristian hunger for more money...more money...MORE MONEY!! How does that saying goe again? You can't ever be too rich, or too thin?

They believe it too. As a matter of fact, they LIVE by it!

They believe charities can help people with all the help they may need.

Translate: Let someone else pay the bill!

They do not believe in Social Security.

Unless they're getting checks themselves--but yes, they don't believe other people are entitled to that program.

They would return us to the days when more than half the elderly in this nation were below the poverty line, living pillar to post with their children or whomever could keep them.

Just as long as THEY don't have to pay a cent. True.

They do not believe in fair wages or the minimum wage.

Why do you think they're still sore about losing the civil war to them Yankees? Slavery was so much more fun, AND above all--cheap! Slavery too, carried with it an extra benefit that you can feel superior over another human-being, right? Damn those Yankees!

They do not support public education. It could be argued they do not support any type of education. Witness their argument about "intelligent design"? No thinking American could go along with their radical agenda. But they are against thinking Americans also...

How else would they keep them--those making less than $250,000; those so incredibly filled with bitter, toxic, anger and hatred; those afraid of their own shadows they don't feel "complete" without their guns under their pillows at night; those with brains so tiny there's only room for bigotry in all shapes and form, and not much else--voting Republican even when they're voting directly against their own financial interests???

That's right!

Keep 'em ignorant, and blind with hatred fueled by the many inferior complexes they're riddled with while directing all of that negativity, toxic blackness towards anyone who dare break through the "social glass ceiling" who are still fighting even for their rights against the neo-aristocrats in America.

They just have NO IDEA how their rich leaders laugh at how stupid they are as they take their money, and get richer, while keeping the fires of hatred, intolerance and bigotry easily fueled by utilizing the public airways to demonize progressives, democrats, and liberals who are the ones doing their damnedest to fight for rights for ALL Americans, big and small through lies, and lies, and MORE lies...

It's so pitiful, and incredibly sad that they can't even see it...<sigh>
