The Republican Party should never receive more than two percent of the popular vote -- since the Republican Party only represents two percent of the population. The Republican party represents the wealthiest two percent of the American people, period.
Every single thing the Republican Party does -- every move it makes, every breath it takes, every word it utters, every vote it casts -- is strictly, totally and purely on behalf of the wealthiest two percent of the people.
The only reason the Republican Party exists at all is to enable the wealthiest two percent to pay the lowest possible income taxes and, if possible, to eliminate all estate taxes. The GOP would eliminate all income taxes, too, if they could.
Of course, by reducing taxes on the wealthiest two percent to the absolute minimum, the GOP also manages to gut all government programs and assure that any state which tries to help ordinary people slides into bankruptcy.
Programs that help education are the first to go. The GOP abhors an educated population. Educated people understand that Republican policies are only good for the wealthiest two percent, and cripple everybody else. A vast uneducated population is Heaven for the GOP. Uneducated voters rabidly consume the GOP's faux patriotism and perverted religious arguments.
To the GOP, Religion is a weapon of Hate -- a sword with which to divide and conquer. The GOP is the Party of Us vs. Them. Republicans always create the Other -- the straw Bogeyman . One year it's Willie Horton -- a few years later, it's Obama. If Obama is Black, he can't be a real American. He must have been born in Kenya. As for Hawaii -- can a place as exotic as Hawaii truly be part of America?
Gays are certainly the Other. They are Different from Us. Therefore, Gays shouldn't be allowed to Marry, and they certainly should not be allowed to serve in the military. It doesn't matter what damage the DADT policy does to our armed forces. It's irrelevant that outstanding soldiers, translators, people with brains, are kept out of the military simply because of their sexual orientation -- not because of anything they have done.
All that matters to the GOP is that the wealthiest two percent of Americans retain their power, continue paying the lowest possible taxes, and contribute as little as possible to the costs of running this country. Republicans don't care if America sinks into the slime pit of becoming a third world country, so be it -- as long as the wealth of the two percent at the top is protected.
Uneducated people vote for the Republican Party because they cling to their flag, guns and religion. They are like bulls in a china shop. The Republican Party waves a Red Flag in front of them and they charge. As long as these uneducated suckers are blinded by their focus on being anti-black, anti-Gay, and anti any other phony targets the GOP invents, they'll vote Republican.
They don't realize that their real Public Enemy Number One is the Republican Party. All the GOP wants from these poor fools is their votes. The GOP has no policies whatsoever to help ordinary people. The entire Republican Party exists to serve only one Master -- the wealthiest two percent of the American population.
Let those poor unfortunate Tea Party suckers read it and weep. How many of them will ever be in the top two percent -- or, even in the top seventy percent? Not only are most Tea Partiers now at the bottom of the economic ladder -- worse yet, they continually vote for candidates and policies that will keep themselves and their children stuck at the bottom of the ladder.
How on Earth did the once Greatest Generation give birth to, and spawn, today's Dumbest Generation? Was it by reducing funding for education -- or by saturating the airwaves with phony propaganda on behalf of the top two percent?
Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh have made it into the top two percent -- but only by selling out the entire rest of the country.
