Rethugs don't believe or value democracy

Our country is owned and operated by corporations and the miniscule wealthy elite, and has been for hundreds of years - except for a brief 45 year period between FDR's New Deal and Reagan's destruction of unions and refusal to enforce anti-trust laws. They are well on their way to obliterating the middle class and bringing about a neo-Feudalism enforced by neo-Fascism and an ocean of debt that lives off the labor of wage-slaves. How long before even those jobs that Americans won't take, hotel maids, lettuce pickers, janitors, garbsge men, etc -- look pretty good to our kids and grand kids.

This my friends is the logical end game of capitalism. They have no shame whatsoever to set themselves up as pharaohs, while we drag stone blocks to build their palaces, mega-Churches, and pyramids.

1. They don't value a democratic republic, either...

I note this only because they always get their noses out of joint at the mention of democracy and shout "this is a republic!"

Their ideal kind of government is the sort we normally associate with banana republics. And their voters never think they might be the ones left picking bananas.

3. I lived through the Reagan revolution, they destroyed so much and with his actor smile he got

away with murder. I don't care how polite he was compared to Trump, he was a virulent racist too.

4. It all goes back to 1945, when Prescott Bush (GHWB's dad) recruited Dick Nixon to run for Congress.

5. I, too, never got over the Ronnie Raygun onslaught

It's when the floodgates opened for their oily self-righteousness & proud ignorance. Then the outrage of naming airports & aircraft carriers after the idiot. And the show just repeats itself.

8. I've often wondered

what motivates someone to wake up each morning and think about taking someones food, shelter, clothing and jobs away.

what kind of sick s.o.b. goes to bed each night wanting more, more, more for themselves and ignores the poverty outside their doors.

I haven't figured the answer out yet.
