I have a better idea. Lets let the Republicans go bankrupt
They are the ones who have fucked everything all up. They were the upper management of this entire economy for the past eight years. They are the same ones who thought paying mercenaries $200,000 tax free dollars a year was a great idea. They were all for getting us into unwinnable wars that cost us billion dollars a month while giving their wealthy fat cat friends tax breaks and let us pay for it.

Lets let the wealthy Republican pricks be the ones to wither on the vine. I have seen people ask if we should tax the wealthy until there are no more of them? I say hell yes. Otherwise they will destroy this country. And it won't bother them a bit.

If they get away with this what comes next? Let Social Security and Medicare go bankrupt too? You betcha they will. They already tried to gamble it all away in the Stock Market and we know that.

Why is anyone even listening to these scum any more without jumping on them for the way they drove our economy into the ground? They are idiots. Haven't they proven that over and over again?

1. Uh Too Late...Mission Accomplished
The electorate already have rejected the GOOP...not only are letting them wither on the wine, but watching them rot as well...and they're smelling the whole country up. This past 8 years has been their free-for-all to "prove" the merits of "supply side/trickle down" economics...or should we call it what is...unabashed greed. It was great when the wealth trickled down into portfolios and 401ks...the day those accoutns started to take a hit, the GOOP's November fate was sealed. But by then it was too late.

I firmly believe this regime and its corrupt lackeys are in the final fleece of our treasury, leaving almost nothing for the next administration and forcing them to spend at least the first year, if not longer, in trying to straighten out this mess. We still have no clue to the depth of their haul or even how much of our money is going out the door and to whom. By the time those details come out, most will be long gone and so will our money.

Be assured that next year is going to be a fiscal armageddon for many states. Shrinking property values and tax revenues, closing businesses and a big rise in the need for services are going to put all our social programs in serious trouble. And, of course, the repugnicans will blame the problem on Democrats, as if this entire economic mess happened due to Obama...responsibility is never a repugnican trait.
