Inscription on the Republican Statue of Fibberty: "Give Me Your Liars, Your Rich, Your Privileged Classes Yearning to Go Tax-free." The Republican Party did not align itself with Southern and Flyover State racists, religious bigots, and the lunatic militia fringe because it actually supports any of the madness these groups promote, but simply because they were all discredited but fanatical voices whose support could be trivially bought with rhetoric in favor of their lunacy. And all of it - ALL OF IT - is simply to add digits to the bottom lines of the ultra-wealthy. That's all it is. Nothing else.
The Republican Party, ladies and gentlemen, is the most corrupt organization that has ever existed in the history of the United States. It will not only pursue whatever policy benefits the wealthy who finance its campaigns, but promote any lie, at whatever cost to freedom or American prosperity, that achieves that objective. Penny or dollar, the very lives of all those who are not of the GOP financier class mean less than the pettiest whims of those who own the Party, and there is no group of lunatics too insane to enlist as political mercenaries for the GOP so long as they deliver the votes and the Hate Media voices screeching against their enemies.
We had the best and most broadly prosperous economy in the history of the world when the richest were paying 90% taxes, but now through their chicanery and media brainwashing we have to achieve fucking supermajorities to even contemplate 2%, 3%, 4% tax increases on these arrogant parasites, and even then are so mindfucked by it all that we preemptively surrender by acting like this is some sort of horrible but necessary imposition? This is insane, and it must end. These people have enjoyed carte blanche over our civilization for long enough. They should be paying most of their money back to the people for all the privileges they enjoy through the hard work of others and previous generations. That's all there is too it.
Children have a RIGHT to the best possible education that this society can provide them, not merely the best education that greedy Republican oligarchs are willing to pay for. People have a RIGHT to breathahble air and drinkable water, not merely the best air and water quality that the owners of the Republican Party are willing to provide. People have a RIGHT to equal access to opportunities, not merely whatever is convenient for the Republican Party based on its employment of bigots as political foot soldiers. People have a RIGHT to health care, absolute and undeniable, regardless of their income or what part of the country they live in. We have tolerated the utter perversion and corruption of our politics long enough. Time to shut down the lies and start collecting on dues.
