Neocons has been a term bandied about to describe the Republican mindset of no taxes ever and exploit everything and everyone.
The term itself is a contraction of the words neo; meaning new and con; meaning conservative, I know it is confusing as their actions are those of con artists.
But wouldn't a more accurate term be Nerocons?
A contraction of Nero and con?
Nero was a Roman emperor and is largely blamed for the fall of Rome.
In 64′, The Great Fire of Rome swept through the Roman capitol and decimated acres of homes, costing countless lives and an absurd amount of property damage. It is said that while the raging fire burned the city to the ground, Emperor Nero played the lyre and watched the fireworks from atop a hill, fiddling to his own lyrics while the capitol was engulfed in flames. There’s evidence to suggest that the Roman Emperor had in fact committed the grand arson himself. The next day, to add insult to injury, he immediately ordered a new palace, the Domus Aurea, constructed on the ashes of the fallen city. This palatial garden estate was somewhere between 100 and 300 acres: Nero’s thoughtful gift …to himself.
Well in my opinion the Republicans have done much worse. They aren't trying to destroy a city but the entire Nation. And instead of thousands starving the Nerocons here ensure that millions of Americans live existences of want and privation.
Allowing corporations to pay zero taxes while pulling in Federal dollars, our roads and bridges are the most obvious sign of the failure of this policy.
Shutting down the government.
Cutting budgets with no regard to the needs of the populations served.
Going on expensive and pointless war tours.
Acting as if they are answerable to no one.
Cutting regulations that maintain the health and safety of the population.
They truly are trying to torch this Country.
They are Nerocons
