    Republicans only think in terms of winning elections so they assume everybody else does the same.

    Nobody asks them to outbid anyone. People just ask them to the right thing, you know, to help people and make the country a better place, do the basic job policymakers are supposed to do.

    But that's a concept they just cannot comprehend anymore. For them, it's just about winning power and using it for their own fun and profit. Doing the actual job that comes attached with winning doesn't even register with them.

    For them, it's about ruling, not governing.

      Our system is only allowed to set the rules of the game and punish violators. It is immoral and illegal for government to promote the general welfare and help people achieve better outcomes than they would get by their luck and their lone efforts, or with help from family and church.

      We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"
