Glenn Beck*Demographics are against the GOP, and they know it, so they’ve gotten desperate, and since they’re without limits, if they EVER regain control of this government, they’re not letting it go again, regardless to WHAT they have to do.

They’re already experimenting with despotism in the state of Michigan (or what I’ve come to call, “Michighanistan”) to see what they can get away with without causing civil unrest. Gov. Rick Snyder has replaced many duly elected officials with his handpicked corporate cronies under the pretext of an economic emergency.

As a result, many citizens in the city of Detroit have absolutely no say in government, or the actions of these unelected managers. They’ve been effectively disenfranchised. After all, what sense does it make to vote if the politicians that you elect aren’t allowed to hold office? If the GOP successfully gets away with that, and then extend that policy on a national level, this will no longer be America. So it’s time for the people to turn off BET, MTV, and ESPN, and wake up.

Retired Army General said He’s Willing to Mount A Military Assault on the White House and congress.
.
Retired army general, and FOX News analysis, Paul Vallely, is quoted as telling Arizona Tea Party Patriots, “I had a call this afternoon from Idaho. The gentleman said, ‘If I give you 250,000 Marines to go to Washington, will you lead them?’” Vallely said as the group laughed and gasped. “I said, ‘Yes, I will, I’ll surround the White House and I’ll surround the Capitol building, but it’s going to take physical presence to do things.”
.
That’s chilling. Why isn’t that front page news, and why is that retired general walking around free? Think about that.
.
And Ron and Rand Paul and their Libertarians or nothing more than garden variety Republicans with a twist of lime to disguise the bad tasted of their Republican agenda. They are both corporate feudalists who are intent on weakening the government in order to create a vacuum of power so the most malevolent forces in society, the corporate feudalists, can step in and occupy that vacuum. They’re engaged in conventional Republicanism, but with a twist.
.
The Republicans have been trying to undermine the New Deal, along with its attendant social safety net, every since it’s inception. But they’ve been unsuccessful because these programs enjoy overwhelming public support. So the Libertarians have decided to take a new tact. They are cherry-picking issues that have broad public support, like abolishing certain drug laws, and then playing on the public desire to be left alone by the government, in order to garner wider support. But what these single-issue supporters don’t realize is, once Libertarians gain power they intend to turn this nation into a corporate state, just like most other Republicans are intent upon.

Another thing that Paul supporters are not considering is that we can control government. All we have to do is wake up, organize, and vote the right people into office. But once the corporate feudalists take over, we won’t have that option – ask the people of Michigan (Michighanistan) whose duly elected officials have been thrown out of office by Gov. Rick Snyder, and replaced with corporate cronies who have absolutely no obligation to the voters. It’s a classic scam of bait-n-switch. Take a minute to lying eyes.

Here’s Libertarian liberty and democracy in action:

One of the biggest problems that we have in this country is that we allow malevolent factions to throw us a bone and then use our votes to undermine our interests. The reason we allow this to happen is because we’re so gullible that we tend to believe that any faction that supports any issue that we’re passionate about is our friend, and that tendency has repeatedly been used against us. Over the years that has repeatedly caused the American people to forge alliances with the very people who want to cut their throats.
.
The one factor that has contributed most to the GOP’s ability to bamboozle the American people is that the Democratic Party has allowed conservative Republicans to seize control of the political rhetoric. The Democrats have just sat back, without rebuttal, and allowed themselves, their constituency, and their agenda to be redefined in the eyes of the American people by conservative Aspin [email protected] As a direct result, they’ve allowed the term “liberal” to become a bad word in the political lexicon.

gop minority outreach

Actually, when we consider how methodically the conservatives went about mounting their assault on the liberal agenda you can’t help but recognize that it was a stroke of genius. Ironically, the conservatives took the Democratic Party’s primary strength, and made it a political liability. First they took the party’s penchant for being concern with the plight of the downtrodden and coined phrases such as “bleeding heart liberals” and “tax and spend Democrats.” They then played on the frustration of the middle class by tying civil rights legislation, welfare, and crime into one neat bundle as the source of middle class woes; then they attributed all of these problems to what they called the Democrat’s tendency to be ” bleeding heart liberals”. Once the connection was made between minorities, welfare, crime, and the liberal agenda, it was just a matter of repeatedly hammering the message home.
.
As a direct result, the GOP and their corporate cronies have conditioned they American to ignore their own interests to vote AGAINST the interests of minorities instead – and that’s without ever considering the fact that when they vote against the interest of minorities, they’re voting against themselves as well. That’s the primary reason that the GOP has been engaged in a brutal assault on our educational system for the past thirty-five years. They don’t want thinking Americans. They directly benefit from having a nation filled with people whose intellect is easily circumvented in order to manipulate their emotions.

And many Black voters suffer from the very same problem. Many Black people have a tendency to support poverty pimps like Tavis Smiley and Cornel West, in spite of the fact that they both have a vested interest in Black misery – in fact, they’re in the Black misery business. If Black people woke up, educated themselves, and became a viable and enlightened political force tomorrow, that would have an horrific impact on the bank accounts of both of these individuals. The only thing that’s propping Tavis Smiley up is Walmart – a member of ALEC; THE biggest enemy of Black people, and the poor and middle-class America as a whole. So if Black people became so enlightened that they didn’t allow Smiley to influence them, Walmart would no longer have any use for him, so they’d dump him, and that would effectively put him out of business.

smiley & west
The same is true of Cornel West. The vast majority of his wealth was accumulated through Black misery. Because it is only our misery that allow him to go around giving $30,000 an hour speeches about how miserable we are. So do we really believe that he wants that misery to come to an end? I don’t think so. Personally, I believe that’s why he worked so hard to get George Bush elected. During the 2000 election he CLAIMED that his motive was to make the Democratic Party do more for the people, so he teamed up with Ralph Nader and helped George Bush win the election by winning the state of Florida by a mere 537 votes. Nader and West took 97,488 votes away from the Democrats, got George Bush elected, and led directly to the condition that we currently find ourselves. So could this supposedly “brilliant” man really have been so dumb that he didn’t know what he was doing? I don’t think so. Clear evidence of that is he tried to team up with Nader again in the 2012 election to do the very same thing to Obama.
.
So anyone with a lick of sense, or any knowledge of history at all, should know that trusting the Republican Party to regain control of this government, and our economy, is both the moral and logical equivalent of entrusting our children to the care of a convicted child molester.

GOP History Over the Last Hundred Years

In 1921 — eight years before the great depression — Republicans took over the helm of this nation for 12 years. During that time there were three Republican administrations, the first of which was the administration of Warren G. Harding. History remembers Harding’s administration for one thing more than anything other — scandal. It was during Harding’s presidency that the Teapot Dome Scandal erupted. His administration was considered the most corrupt administration in the history of the United States — until Nixon’s, then Reagan’s, and finally Bush’s.
.
Next, in 1923, came Calvin Coolidge, the president that Ronald Reagan is said to have most admired. Coolidge’s policies of large tax cuts, allowing business a free-rein, and his encouragement of stock speculation contributed greatly to the impending stock market crash and the great depression that was to come.
.
Then in 1929 Herbert Hoover came to power. During his administration the stock market crashed, starting the great depression. In spite of the fact that by 1933 the unemployment rate was at 33.3% with 16 million people out of work, the Republican, Hoover, just sat, thinking that the economy would eventually rejuvenate itself. During Hoover’s administration 15,000 WWI veterans marched on Washington demanding that they be paid what they were owed by the government. Hoover responded by calling in federal troops to throw these ex-servicemen off government property.
.
Finally in 1933 Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a liberal democrat, was elected overwhelmingly. He immediately surrounded himself with a group of the finest minds in the country, including Columbia professors Adolph A. Berle, Jr., Rexford G. Tugwell, and Raymond Moley, known at the time as the “Brain Trust.” After assembling these men and others he went about the business of developing a” New Deal” for the working class people of this country.
.
The New Deal had two components — one to help the economy to recover from the effects of the great depression, and a second component to give relief to the American people and to insure that they were never be placed in a position of total destitution again. To help heal the economy Roosevelt created programs that regulated business, controlled inflation, and brought about price stabilization; to bring relief to the people he signed The National Labor Relations Act which guaranteed workers the right to collective bargaining, and he created the Social Security Administration to guarantee workers some sort of income once they became too old to work. He also signed the Fair Labor Standards Act which protected workers rights and set a minimum wage for workers.
.
With his New Deal in place Franklin Delano Roosevelt, this “bleeding heart liberal”, not only led this country out of the worst, Republican generated, crisis that this country has ever faced, but went on to lead the free world in victory over Hitler in WWII. He then ushered in the most sustained prosperity that the world has ever known.
.
One would think that conservatives would have seen the light, but their passion to further enrich the wealthy at the expense of the middle and lower classes seems to supersede all logic. Therefore, from the moment that the New Deal went into place, conservatives have been determined to dismantle it. The closest they’ve come to succeeding started during the Reagan administration with Supply-Side Economics, or, “Reaganomics” — and the battle is currently raging in Washington D.C. as we speak.

Reagonomics, No Trickle

Supply- Side Economics was a scheme hatch by U.S.C. economist Arthur Laffer and the Reagan crowd which was supposed to cut the deficit and balance the budget. The theory behind Reaganomics was ostensibly, if you cut taxes for business and people in the upper tax brackets, and then deregulated business of such nuisances as safety regulations and environmental safeguards, the beneficiaries would invest their savings into creating new jobs. In that way the money would eventually “trickle down” to the rest of us. The resulting broadened tax base would not only help to bring down the deficit, but also subsidize the tremendously high defense budget. When the plan was first floated, even George Bush, Reagan’s vice president to be, called it “voodoo economics.”
.
Reaganomics, for the most part, sought to undo many of the safeguards put into place during the Roosevelt era and create a business environment similar to that which was in place during the Coolidge Administration. What actually took place, however, was even more like the Coolidge era than planed.
.
Instead of taking the money and investing it into creating new jobs, the money was used in wild schemes and stock market speculation. One of these schemes, the leveraged buy out, involved buying up large companies with borrowed funds secured by the company’s assets, then paying off the loan by selling off the assets of the purchased company. This practice cost the citizens of this country its industrial base. In addition, the bottom fell out of the stock market. On Monday, October 19, 1987 the Dow-Jones Average fell 508.32 points. It was the greatest one-day decline since 1914 – 15 years before the Great Depression.

And what about Ronald Reagan’s promise to balance the budget and lower the deficit? By the time he left office he was not only the most prolific spender of any president, but he also added more to the deficit than all of the other presidents from George Washington to his own administration combined. And what does the Republican Party propose to do about that? One of the Republican proposals was their “contract with America,” a capitol gains tax cut — for the rich.
.
Due to the continued freewheeling fiscal policies of conservative Republicans, between 1986 and 1989, spanning the presidencies of Reagan and Bush Sr., the FSLIC had to pay off all the depositors of 296 institutions with assets of over $125 billion.
.
Then in 1988 Silverado Savings and Loan collapsed, costing the taxpayers $1.3 billion. It was headed by Neil Bush, brother of George W. The investigation alleged that he was guilty of “breaches of his fiduciary duties involving multiple conflicts of interest.” The issue was eventually settled out of court with Bush paying a mere $50,000 settlement.
.
Then there was the Lincoln Savings and loan scandal in 1987, involving John McCain. The scandal was very similar to the one that is currently playing out on Wall Street. He was one of a group of senators dubbed “The Keating Five” involved in a scandal by the same name.
.
In 1976 Charles Keating moved to Arizona to run the American Continental Corporation. In 1984, shortly after the Reagan era push to deregulate the savings and loan community, Keating bought Lincoln Savings and Loan and began to engage in highly risky investments with the depositors’ savings. In 1989 the parent company, which Keating headed, went bankrupt, and it resulted in over 21,000 investors losing their life savings. Most of the investors were elderly, and the loss amounted to about 285 million dollars.
.
After having received over a million dollars from Keating in illegal campaign contributions, gifts, free trips, and other gratuities, the Keating Five–Senators John Glenn, Don Riegle, Dennis DeConini, Alan Cranston, and Sen. John McCain–attempted to intervene in the investigation into Keating’s activities by the regulators. Later, they were admonished to varying degrees by the senate for attempting to influence regulators on Keating’s behalf. Charles Keating ended up being convicted for fraud, racketeering and conspiracy, for which he received 10 years by the state court, and a 12 year sentence in federal court. After spending four and a half years in prison, his convictions were overturned. But prior to being retried, he pled guilty to a number of felonies in return for a sentence of time served.
.
Then came the George W. Bush administration that caused close to a million people to die uselessly in an illegal war in Iraq, robbed the American people blind, whose fumbling ignited the longest war in American history in Afghanistan, and whose greed came very close to sending the nation into yet another depression.
.
Now, after all of their repeated efforts to deplete the national treasury, they’re unanimously voting against every piece of legislation that the Democrats propose to repair the damage they created, and to bring relief to the American people. Then they have the audacity to claim that they’re doing it because they’re concerned about deficit spending.
.
They’re against affordable health care for American families; they’re against any kind of spending to put Americans back to work, and they’re against extending unemployment insurance to relieve the burden of America’s unemployed. What’s particularly telling, however, is they’re also against any kind of strong legislation to prevent the financial community (them) from being able to rob the American people in the future.
.
The fact is, what they really wanted was to maintain the status quo, and make damn sure that the American people remained miserable, hungry, and divided until 2012 elections so they’d have a better chance to regain power and raid the treasury again. Republican Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell, was frustrated and reckless enough to say it out loud – “Our No. 1 priority is to make this president a one-term president” – not to save America, or to bring relief to the American people, but to make Barack Obama a one-term president. Flag pens in lapels and patriotic rhetoric notwithstanding, that says it all about the GOP’s lack of concern for America, or the American people.
.
Now that they’ve lost the election, their agenda has shifted to making sure that President Obama is not successful, because if he is, and you combine that with the rapidly changing demographic and Hillary Clinton’s popularity, that could spell doom for the future of the GOP – and it should, because they’re grossly out of touch with reality, and, America’s best interest. They’re out to create a corporate feudalist society. The government shutdown alone, clearly demonstrates that they have absolutely no respect for democracy.

republican non-Jobs agenda

And this is not just political rhetoric. Here is the activity of the Republican congress who ran in the 2010 election on their claim that their number one priority was to bring economic relief, and create jobs for the American people.

History is clear. The conservative Republicans don’t mind spending money, they just don’t want to spend it on those who need it – us. Remember, they’re the party of Alexander Hamilton, one of this country’s founding fathers who believed that only those who owned property should even be allowed to vote. He also said:

“All communities divide themselves into the few and the many. The first are the rich and wellborn, the other the mass of the people…. The people are turbulent and changing; they seldom judge or determine right. Give therefore to the first class a distinct, permanent share in government. They will check the unsteadiness of the second, and as they cannot receive any advantage by a change, they therefore will ever maintain good government.” Debates of the Federalist Convention (May 14-September 17, 1787).

So, let’s set the record straight. Franklin Delano Roosevelt, that “bleeding heart liberal”, not only brought the nation back from the Great Depression and saved the world from Hitler during his life, but his “New Deal” for the American people gave us the greatest prosperity we’ve ever known, and allowed him to reach back from the grave to save the nation from Ronald Reagan 50 years after his death.

That isn’t to say that the liberal Democratic philosophy corners the market on what is in the best interest of the nation — it is clear that both parties have had illustrious moments in the past, though, not recently — but rather, this is one of those defining issues in American politics that determines whether this is to be a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, or a government where the citizens or nothing more than disposable resources for big business.
