Across the Nation from school boards, in the Governor's Mansions to Congress, Republicans are tiresly working to ensure Working Class people have No Friend in Government.
And it's not just their "principled" stand against the Affordable Care Act, wherein Republican Congressmen have refused to help their constituents with taking advantage of the Law.
From mandating Transvaginal Ultrasound Wand Raping of Women against their consent, to taking away the Voting Franchise from University Students and African-Americans, to undercutting Unions, to dismantling Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Unemployment and the ACA, while voting to eliminate the Clean Air and Water Act and any other regulation which stops Corporations from despoiling the Air we breathe, the water we drink and the land we live upon all the while accepting gratis and kickbacks from the Plutocratic 1%, Republicans and Pro-Business Democrats are using the Power of Government for Oppression and Domination.
This is, of course, nothing new. The Government was not set up for the People but for a small cadre of elites. Many of the Founding Fathers loathed the idea of Democracy, equating it with anarchy and mob rule, and even those disposed to empower the common man, crafted a system which excluded the majority of Americans from the political process and its' benefits. The 20th Century saw a change as the Federal Government set up protections and came to the aid of the Working Class.
This was seen as a major revocation of trust by the Plutocracy, which, traditionally need not have worried about whom was elected because the Politician was known to be in the pocket of Rich.
Republican State Representatives, Governors, Congressmen and Senators are proudly proclaiming they are working against the Democratic Republic and for the interests, welfare and benefits of the Very Few.
America, this is Fascism. This is the Modern GOP; This is the Conservative Right today; Guard Dogs and Handmaidens to the Plutocracy.
And it's designs and goals are easy to understand. The 1% want an American Populace ready to accept whatever the 1% deem them worthy of. They want you so fearful of losing your job, that you're willing to accept pay cuts, elimination of benefits, longer work days for no overtime.
Because once you're fearful and once Republicans have convinced you they won't help then the American people will know they have nowhere to turn and no one fighting for them, you'll be complainant to the Plutocratic Owners of America and you'll help the 1% grind down the Middle and Working Class to abject Poverty and subservient Penury.
