Maybe you’ve seen the news that McShame is lamenting the fact that the GOP can do nothing to stop the government takeover of healthcare in America, or, at least, what used to be America.
As usual for the GOP, too little, too late. The bill got over its first hurdle last night.
McShame needs to grab his walker, amble down the hall to the crapper, and lean over and look at his stupid face in the mirror and thank himself for this. Because, very simply, the GOP should bear the lion’s share of the blame for this catastrophe.
“How dare I say such a thing?” the GOP sheep will ask. It all goes back to the mid-90s.
After HillaryCare went down in flames (note that the first thing the socialists do when they gain power is go after healthcare, because it is the golden ticket when it comes to controlling the population and they know it, just ask Hitler) in 1993, the American public expressed its displeasure by kicking the socialist Dim-O-Cracks out on their asses.
It was a time of sweet, sweet gridlock and a movement towards fiscal restraint and BUDGET SURPLUSES.
Unfortunately, the new wave of “conservative, small-government” Republicans soon discovered the power of the purse and the power of their own egos. Limp-wristed and self-serving leadership from dirtbags like Trent Lott and Bill Frist resulted in a GOP majority that couldn’t pass legislation to tie its own shoes, all the while playing the same pay-to-play corruption games that has become the hallmark of governments large and small.
Then in the 2000s, this pathetic GOP leadership found the perfect country-club Republican in George Bush to continue the elitist big-spending cronyism that resulted in more and more giveaways and pandering to special interests. His tenure was complicated by the islamic terrorist attacks of 9/11, but Bush never saw a spending bill he didn’t like – especially if some of those millions were going to his beloved illegals.
To make things many times worse, you had gutless, liberal GOP Senators like McCain, Lispy Graham, Snowe, Hatch, Collins, Spectre, Alexander and others whose only goals were to be praised by the leftist media and avoid any appearance of partisanship. Cowards, liars and crooks, just like their counterparts across the aisle.
This reckless spending and spinelessness resulted in the GOP getting their asses kicked all over the playground in 2006 and 2008. And they STILL DON’T FUCKING UNDERSTAND WHY IT HAPPENED.
Now, thanks to the worst Presidential candidacy since Bob Dole, we have a President who is nothing more than a moronic Marxist union thug from Chicago, surrounded by academics and labor racketeers who hate America and hate Capitalism. Yeah, I went there.
This administration and the other Congressional Communists – Reid, Pelosi, Durbin, Frank, Byrd, Nelson, et al – are rushing to spend as much as possible and pass as much economy crushing legislation as possible because everything they do is opposed by a majority of the American public. It’s now or never to bring down Capitalism once and for all, and they’re getting closer with each 1 am vote.
Some have gone a little further and suggested that the Obamabots are pushing towards an intentional collapse of the economy and monetary system so that the America that we grew up with will be burned down and rebuilt by these same thugs, in their utopian socialist image. When you look at what they’re spending compared to previous eras, it’s hard to argue with them.
At every turn, this administration (in conjunction with its co-conspirators in congress) has been pushing legislation that strips away your liberty and removes your freedom of choice. It’s all geared toward restricting your freedom and shutting down America’s once-great economic engine. Don’t be fooled by their love of the “environment” – the ultimate goal of these people is totalitarian control, not saving the planet from their own manufactured junk science.
Now the GOP is standing around with their finger in their collective ass wondering how they are going to stop this Marxist freight train. They have one of two choices: (1) merge with the tea-party movement and put the constitution, limited government, spending restraint and budget slashing above all else, and pledge a blood oath to REPEAL everything they can, including healthcare OR (2) relegate themselves to the dustbin of history while a new third party emerges that is focused on returning this country to its roots of self-reliance, limited government, federalism and the well-designed limitations of the Constitution.
If history is any indicator, you can go ahead and purchase your sympathy card for the GOP’s next of kin.
