Vote Republican

Aug 22, 2012 | Updated Oct 22, 2012

C'mon, folks! Let's be serious. Why in God's name would anyone in their right mind vote for politicians whose every word and deed serves only the wishes of their billionaire masters?

Want to see what America would look like as envisioned by these lackeys to Wall Street and the oil companies?

Vote Republican!

Better yet, imagine an America where the government has been crippled and hogtied when it comes to serving the needs of the poor, the infirm, the elderly or the middle class. Hell, just by gaining a majority in the House of Representatives they've been able to castrate the financial reforms voted in by the last Congress. Just imagine what they could do with control of both the presidency and the Congress!

The Republicans see no evil, speak no evil and hear no evil when it comes to their billionaire bosses, even the ones most guilty of turning our once prosperous country into a nation of dogs fighting for scraps tossed from the tables of the wealthy.

Medicare and Social Security? Say goodbye to those quaint, outdated concepts once the Republicans gain control. If you think I'm being alarmist, recall how George W. Bush campaigned to privatize Social Security, or how the Republicans all voted for Paul Ryan's Medicare-emasculating budget.

What happened to America, this once great country of ours, that men and women of the lowest possible moral standing -- with no regard for the welfare of others, no concern for the rights of individuals, no limits to their jingoism, no higher priority than eliminating all reasonable taxation of the wealthy, no interest in protecting even the most vulnerable among us from predatory lending or banking practices, no concern for the planet we inhabit or the air we breathe, no shame about raining war, destruction or torture on foreign countries or their people, no shame about crippling America's own leaders or its economy if it improves their political status -- are given a platform to spew the most venomous lies and accusations, then voted into office to pursue their small-minded, self-enriching political agenda?

What happened to America? We voted Republican -- that's what happened!
