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.
The fact is that, as they each attempt to qualify the benefits of “less government” (when and only when “less government” benefits THEM directly), they all want so BADLY to be PRESIDENT of the very government they claim to disdain!!
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!! When it comes to any (similar), um, “benefits” for their “constituents,” on the other hand, each wants to dismantle anything that resembles their own fully-TAXPAYER-funded benefits, calling any such “perks” as basic health care access, 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 DOLE, on OUR, the taxpayers’, 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 citizenry, particularly after THEY, the self-same (self-serving) workers in this miserably failing government, are directly responsible for RUINING EVERYTHING with all their FAILED POLICIES.
And too, in the very same breath, each contender actively courts and shamelessly panders to the most dangerous of all religious zealots (Bigots), the R-Wing fundamentalist “Christians.” The fact of the matter is that any presidential contenders that puts 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.
And, on the other hand, if Republicans really believe in a hands-off approach in governing, what in God’s name are they doing telling anyone else how to live one’s own life through legislation of their delusional beliefs, e.g. Pro-life, Bible-study in PUBLIC SCHOOLS, etc., etc., etc.
Maybe it is 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 did NOT vote for the likes of these barbaric, backward, short-sighted primates?? After all, we ALL are left wide open to the SHRAPNEL from the Average-Moron-Voter and the veritable BUFFOONS running this godforsaken and, by the way, totally ILLEGITIMATE and CORRUPT, government!!
It is, therefore, most curious that each of these wannabe Presidential contenders not only desperately cling to their respective positions in the very government they all claim to disdain; But now, having been in the government as career politicians, i.e. HACKS, each moron-contender wants to now become PRESIDENT!!
