Republicans assumed wrongly that their elections were a sign they would be in power forever and resorted to their former ways of business as usual — the business of helping themselves, their rich cronies and kowtowing to the small percentage of elites within the party.
They gave us campaign slogans like family values and “I’m a Christian.” The ultra-rich know nothing about Christian values. If they did, people like Warren Buffett would donate the billions he has to charity and keep only the amount needed to sustain an 80-year-old man like himself for the rest of his life, however short this might be.
If the plan of the ultra-rich Republican Party is to tell a working mother making minimum wage at the dollar store that she and her family will starve if they can’t survive on that wage, what do they think she will do? Starve or seek government assistance? My observations are the Republicans are as much to blame for their defeats as the Democrats are.
However, these truths about the Republican Party are not a ringing endorsement of the Democratic Party, either. Both parties are at completely different ends of the political spectrum, with working Americans being stuck in the middle and financially bled to death by both parties. The Republicans do it with out-of-control capitalist greed, and the Democrats do it with socialism that hinges on the verge of becoming fascism.
This leaves the majority of Americans being squeezed from both sides with no representation. May both parties die a quick and painful death before they cause most Americans to die.
