It is indeed very interesting, from my viewpoint, that each and every one of these increasingly delusional Presidential wannabes denigrates the entire government in general, and specifically argues the role(s) that government should or should NOT assume in our society. The Republicans each extoll the supposed virtues of a smaller government and thereby, the limitations and restrictions of the government’s functions, vis-a-vis the individual citizen; But only if the presumed freedoms of the individual conform to THEIR OWN AGENDAS, i.e. Pro-Life, teaching idiot-“Creationism” in public schools; the list goes on and on.
The fact remains that each of these wannabe Presidential “contenders” attempt to qualify the benefits of “less government;” Hands-off, laissaz-faire, Individuality…When and only when “less government” benefits THEM directly; And, perhaps most curiously, they all want so BADLY to remain in government as parasites or to become PRESIDENT, KING-Parasite, of the very government they rail against and claim to disdain and want to dismantle!!
Well, it’s obvious to most people that the benefits are really quite nice for them: The hefty and steadily rising salaries, free lifetime health care benefits for themselves and their entire families, huge lifetime pensions, Insider Trading; The list goes on, and it’s All on OUR, the taxpayers’ dime!!
Of course, when it comes to any similar, um, “benefits” for their “constituents,” US, on the other hand, each wants to dismantle every program that has been put into place that benefits the public as a whole. Anything that resembles their own fully-TAXPAYER-funded benefits, they proclaim as wasteful frills and needless “perks” that are bankrupting the nation. (PERKS such as basic health care access, education, housing). Further, they state that any such benefits to American citizens, i.e. their own constituents, are an evil part of a “Welfare State,” which will only lead to dreaded “Socialism.”
Yes, it is quite fascinating and ironic that each of these career government HACKS has been on the tax-payer funded DOLE, yes, on OUR, the taxpayers’, hard-earned money, most of their rotten, corrupt and wretched lives. All whilst these same government workers continue to fiercely deny any semblance of “benefit” to the American citizenry; And particularly after THEY, the self-same (self-serving) workers (Parasitic Humps) in this miserably failing government, are directly responsible for RUINING EVERYTHING with all their own Utterly FAILED POLICIES.
And too, in the very same breath, each contender actively courts and shamelessly panders to the most dangerous of all religious zealots, the R-Wing fundamentalist “Christian” BIGOTS. The fact of the matter is that any presidential contenders that puts ANY religion on the table is OUT in my book. These crazed lunatics seem to be constantly playing a game of one-upmanship as to whom has more faith in god whilst the word “god” should never, ever, enter the political arena at all. The most omnipresent danger in politics is religion–and time after time, particularly with the fanatical right-wing conservatives, it, religion, seems to be at the forefront; and this is indeed dangerous.
So, if the Republicans really do believe in a hands-off approach in governing, individual liberties, freedom, prosperity, etc., then what in God’s name are they doing telling ANYone else how to live one’s own life? And through legislation of their OWN [delusional] beliefs, e.g. Pro-life, Bible-study in PUBLIC SCHOOLS, etc., etc., etc.
Maybe it;’s true that the voters who do vote for most of these government HUMPS truly DESERVE EVERY BIT OF IT. But what about the rest of us who do NOT vote for the likes of these barbaric, backward, short-sighted, insane neanderthals?? After all, we ALL are left wide open to the SHRAPNEL from the Average-Moron-Voter and the veritable Greedy BUFFOONS whom have enthroned themselves to this thoroughly corrupt and failing government.
It is, therefore, most curious that each one of these lifetime government hacks do desperately cling to their respective positions in this Kleptocratic system of government [that they all claim to disdain]; So, having been in the government as career politicians, living off of taxpayers money all their wretched lives, now, having had a taste of pathetic “power” and lame “control” over others, it’s catapulted them into the Ultimate: Dancing with the Stars; American Idol; And then, at last, Idiot-Stardom-cum-Idiot-PRESIDENT-ELECT.
