CONSERVATIVES INTENDED TO BREAK THE GOVERNMENT–THAT PLAN BEGAN WITH RONALD REAGAN. I hope Americans have had enough of the party of NO, and won’t finish off our country in November by voting for them.
Conservative Republicans do not want to govern. They just want to continue to say no until our government is dissolved and then their wet dream of privatization and slavery can begin. The reason they get along so well with the Tea Party anarchists is because they are anarchists themselves.
What is happening to our nation today is like another of their maniacal fantasies gone awry—like establishing a democracy in Iraq. Conservatives don’t even know the meaning of Democracy. They forget the part where an educated middle class is required for a Democracy.
Mark Juddery, author of the book, Overrated: The 50 Most Overhyped Things in History,
posted the 8 most overrated people in history in Huffington Post. Reagan is among them and I could not agree more.
Reagan’s legacy began the huge budget deficits.
ANY AMERICAN WHO VOTES FOR A CONSERVATIVE IN NOVEMBER IS A FOOL!
Dave Johnson of Campaign for America wrote an article back in May titled “REAGAN REVOLUTION HOME TO ROOST: AMERICANS DROWNING IN DEBT.
In his article Johnson reminds us once again of the great Republican scheme that I’ve spoken of before and that has been in place since Reagan. Their plan has always been to bankrupt the government. ANY AMERICAN BELONGS TO THE 95% CLUB–THOSE WHO EARN LESS THAN $166,000 A YEAR WHO VOTE FOR ANY REPUBLICAN THIS NOVEMBER ARE TOTAL IDIOTS! TOTAL IDIOTS! AND WE HAVE TO KEEP AN EYE ON THE CENTRIST DEMOCRATS AS WELL!
The Reagan Revolution was first and foremost about cutting the taxes paid by the rich and corporations. Now, almost 30 years later, the United States of America is drowning in debt. And that is exactly what they wanted to happen.
Bankrupting our government was the plan and today we can see that it was what they did. They didn’t want revenue to increase because the idea was to “starve the beast.” Reagan called it “cutting their allowance.”
The plan was that by cutting the funding for government, government would have to cut back on what it does: regulating business, protecting regular people against powerful interests, building infrastructure, educating kids, taking care of the poor and elderly. With government (We, the People) out of the way businesses could be unleashed and really start to make money. And for those who could afford to pay, private companies would take over those other functions. That was called “privatization. “
Infrastructure? We had plenty of infrastructure back then – grab the cash now and worry about that later. ( As Mr. Johnson pointed out: It’s later now.) So taxes were cut. And immediately the budget went into deficit and the government started borrowing. The debt started to grow. That was the plan. They said so.
Now we’re experiencing part two of The Plan: use the debt as a reason to cut the things government does for We, the People. The deficit cutters insist that the government should cease investment in infrastructure, educating kids, taking care of the poor and elderly and protecting regular people against powerful interests. First and foremost they want to cut Social Security. Did you happen to notice that Food Stamps were just reduced last week?
