Most Americans Are No Longer Fooled By Republican Buzzwords and Dishonest Slogans
Quote:In the past, Republicans have had a measure of success convincing ignorant Americans their perspective on economic policy based on a pro-growth, anti-government agenda is the path to economic prosperity for all Americans, but after being exposed as abject failures and rejected at the polls, they cannot face reality that the people have come to understand their catchy slogans are as dishonest as they are contradictions.

In Republican parlance, pro-growth means tax cuts for the rich and corporations, deregulation, and slashing government spending regardless the damage to the economy, and dreaded “big government” is any federal spending that is not relegated to defense or tax cuts for corporations and the rich. In the President’s brilliant State of the Union speech, he laid out a vision that incorporates everything Republicans hate and have opposed from his first day in office; so-called big government that means investing in infrastructure, jobs, education, clean energy alternatives, and maintaining Social Security and Medicare that are key to a strong economy. It is curious, but Republicans deplore big government unless it works to their advantage to deny Americans personal liberties such as women’s reproductive rights, gay rights, minority’s rights (voting rights), and freedom from fundamentalist religious tyranny. However, big government aside, it is their pro-growth canard that will further retard economic growth and decimate the poor and middle class they now claim to hold in the highest regard.

Only the far fringe are indulging in the delusion. Most have seen that de-regulation hasn't worked for the 99%; the cries of government debt and deficit don't mean that much to the working folks. It's a smoke screen only the Top 1% and their minions, the middle-class "millionaires" that will be rich in the next couple of weeks, care about. They sat quietly and smiled as GWBush*, their favorite recent white male President, lied us into war, destroyed civil liberties, and drove the economy into the ditch. The Top 1% ran away with the money, the rest of us hope and pray that we don't get downsized, or can quickly find another job if that does happen.

My favorite question is for the fringe that care so much about the "job creators"--so where are the jobs? I've never gotten an answer.

It's about time! The Pukes have made an art out of using disingenuous words and terms to describe their agenda, or to describe the Democrats agenda....and they are always opposite of what they say, "pro-life" really means saving a fetus but once that fetus is born it's on its own. "Pro-family" or "traditional values" means rich white people who break every commandment in the Bible, and so on.

the more you are morally obligated to be pragmatic...Idealism without pragmatism
is just a way to flatter your ego." -Barney Frank
