Treasonous Republicans Kill Jobs And Betray The American People - There Is No Spoon - 11-05-2011 08:11 AM
There are myriad cases in America’s history of treachery against the people by ideologues who embrace a philosophical bent that drives them to betray their own countrymen for monetary gain or to topple the current government. When those traitors are exposed, they are arrested and tried for treason and if their crimes warrant harsh punishment, they may face execution according to the law. Today, Americans are under siege by a mainstream political movement whose goal is to cause as much damage to the government and its people as possible and they display the malice, subterfuge, and betrayal of history’s worst traitors. After two years and ten months of obstruction, deceit, and lies, Republicans have shown themselves to be traitors to their country and more importantly, traitors to the American people.
The Republicans in the House and Senate are traitors, but they have abandoned any attempt at covert action against the government and the people. This week, for the third time, Republicans in the Senate blocked a part of President Obama’s jobs plan that guaranteed to put Americans back to work. They claim their objection is the 0.7% surtax on millionaires and billionaires, but if the infrastructure improvement bill had given money to the wealthy and corporations directly, Republicans still would have opposed it. It is true that Republicans will always oppose any tax increases for their precious millionaires and billionaires, but their motives for blocking job creation was about portraying the president as ineffective at bolstering economic growth. Although they want to defeat President Obama at all costs, their ultimate goal is changing the nature of government into a corporate run enterprise that rewards wealthy industrialists and sends the rest of the people into a life of perpetual poverty.
The Republican Party’s de facto leader, Grover Norquist, has went on record promising that if they can shrink the size of the federal government enough, they will drown it in a bathtub. It is one thing to be fiscally conservative, but to openly declare that their goal is to eliminate the government altogether and replace it with a Libertarian’s dream of a privately owned entity is blatant treason against the government. The monstrous aspect of Republicans’ tactic to decimate the government is their malicious disregard for the American people, and make no mistake; the GOP have spent two and three-quarters years assailing 99% of Americans who are not filthy rich.
Earlier in the week, this column reported the dire circumstances that good, hardworking Americans find themselves in because Republicans refuse to help them with jobs. Most of the people interviewed could not understand why Republicans were willing to cause them further economic harm for political reasons. The simple answer is that Republicans just do not care about the American people. During the Republican spending cut frenzy back in February, Speaker of the House John Boehner said that if the GOP’s cuts eliminated over a million jobs, “So be it.” Boehner continued his penchant for lying by claiming “America is broke” and could afford to kill jobs. However, if America is broke; why did Republicans block efforts to end oil company subsidies when they are posting record profits?
I hope the American people are paying attention. I also hope that Democrats will be showing many ads emphasizing the craven elite-fellating of the hate-filled Republicans in next years elections.

Let's hope the public sees these scumbags for the America-hating maggots that they are.

It's past time to call them what they are. Now, if the people will finally understand that the repubs don't care about them and vote them out!
