Well, America, there's good news and there's bad news....

(from Facebook)

The good news? The GOP is actually going to have to govern now.

The bad news? They'll probably finish killing off the middle class and all that goes with it.

A middle class cannot exist without law to pull obscene amounts of wealth back into an economy to support it.

The Keynes model never had a defined middle class graph, if you will.

And when most of the wealth of the world is sitting in bank accounts doing nothing but collecting interest, it's not in the economy.

That, friends, is exactly what the high and mighty in the GOP already know.

Congratulations, America. You probably just got rid of your minimum wage, your workers rights, your over time pay, your forty-hour work week, your healthcare choices, equality, safety, free highways, maybe even your ability to vote. Hell, pick something, anything, that tax dollars from the ultra-wealthy might have paid for, and kiss it goodbye.

Our country now officially belongs to a little clique of filthy rich greedheads who own you, lock, stock and tomahawk.

Enjoy it. But hey, at least you got to keep your gun!

And govern they will. They're going to govern the shit out of you, because they've got a much bigger collection of guns.

Their new slogan might as well be, "We're the GOP and we own the joint."

Bend over, grab your ankles, shut up, and take whatever the Koch brothers are willing to give you. Because, you know.....Murka!

Or maybe not....apparently the National Review feels that the best governing strategy for the GOP is to, uh, not govern.
