  •  If they win this year, it's gone (1+ / 0-)

    The GOP is just the bought handmaiden of the largest, most wealthy, and most Conservative elements of our country. Less than 200 people provide the huge bulk - more than 80% - of the money that funds their campaigns. They have their own legal hackshop to write legislation favorable to them (ALEC). They have specifically-designed "media consultants" who figure out the best phrases to use to trick people into supporting legislation that hurts them. They have bought their own very lucrative information-production factories like the Heritage Foundation.

    Now they are attacking and limiting voting rights in every state that has a Republican governor or legislature.

    If they win this year, they will fitzwalkerstan the entire nation with fast, powerful blows.

    One of the first things to go will be the EPA and environmental ("anti-business") legislation. They figure that Americans are so desperate for jobs that they will happily destroy the environment to get paid.

    The next thing? Leasing of more national lands and parks at bargain rates, sop that their companies make profits galore. The commons will be gone - perhaps forever.

    They say "cut back" - we say "fight back"!
