Newt, like all chicken hawk Republicans of his era abstained from Vietnam, but being a flabby-assed, weak-kneed, coward knew he couldn't hack it in the Real World. So Newt began running for a Government "Job" in 1974. Upon arriving in DC in 1978, Gingrich began his long career of comparing his political opponents to Neville Chamberlain, which contrary to what he "thinks" obviously makes Newt Hitler. Q.E.D. Godwin's Law really should be called Gingrich's Law.
Newt has even proposed The Newt Gingrich Youth. Gingrich called laws against child labor "truly stupid" and unveiled a plan so vile and so hateful, it not only puts poor children to work and eliminates their access to an education but, also takes jobs from struggling fathers and mothers.
During his time sucking off taxpayers Newt Gingrich's career goal has been to create Cargo Cult Conservatism. Republicons have been promising their duped and battered conservative drones that trickle down wealth is at hand for decades. All right-wingers need do is keep on voting for Republicans and the Rain of Wealth would fall on them.
In keeping in line with this cycle, Republicon Presidential Front Runner Newt Gingrich revealed his tax plan. Guess what? Just like with Herman Cain's ridiculous proposal, Taxes are higher on Middle Class and Small Business Owners than they are on the Super-Rich.
The Newt Gingrich plan, has a higher Federal Tax Rate for struggling Americans making $40,000 (12.7%) than for those earning over $1,000,000 (11.9%). Additionally, taxes on Income from Capital Gains would be eliminated.
Newt is a solid member of the Republican Guard, out to harass, harm, oppress and defeat the 99%. Gingrich proudly proclaims himself a "Reaganite" and his tax proposal is right in line with Piss Down Your Back and Tell You It's Raining Reaganomics. Screw the Majority of Americans and solidify the Transfer of Wealth up to the Richest 1%.
We've already seen that due to the Reagan instituted lowering of the Capital Gains tax rate, 50% of all Capital Gains profits go to the Richest 0.1% of the US. Gingrich's complete elimination would result in an even faster Transfer of Wealth upwards and accelerate the Income Inequality in this Nation to levels not seen since the Pharaohs.
But, Newt off-sets his vicious Neo-Feudalist Class Warfare by declaring he doesn't want to pay people for 99 weeks for sitting on their rear end. Oh wait, that's merely more attack the Poor Class Warfare! While, this rhetoric of not providing unemployment to anyone scores points with the duped and battered conservative voter, Newt Gingrich has never had a real job in his life.
Newt has spent 20 years
To all the Republicon backers and all the conservatives out there you are clearly supporting a party which is anti-American. But, one of the most stunning achievements of Newt Gingrich, Jack Abramoff, Grover Norquist, Phil Graham, Racist Limbaugh, Tom DeLay, Michele Bachmann and all the current 300 Republicon Bureaucrats is how successful their full-blown John Bircher assaults have been at transferring the blame and guilt for their rampant corruption, high crimes and misdemeanors to Liberals and the Left.
When one needs to grasp the full tenor and terror of the puffy-faced wide-bottomed champion of toxicity that is Newt Gingrich one need only level their gaze at the magnificent Driftglass: Where Were You.
