Unless something unexpected happens, there will be no Republican Party in 2016.
Anyone brings this rich BS up, ask one question.
Did you ever get a job from a poor person?
Usually shuts a libtard up.
Nice post! From the article:
The view of the rich also stems from what our children have been taught in public schools for now decades. In Marxist Justice, I noted that:
By the time most American students leave high school they have often been instructed in Marxist theory, social justice, anti-capitalism, and class envy against the rich by public education .
To be historically accurate though, there was a fair amount of vilification of the rich during the first half of the 20th. Century (Progressive Era through the New Deal).
I wonder how many of these people who say they hate the rich play the Lottery hoping to become rich without working for it.
I think defending the ultra rich is a stupid position for conservatives to take and likely costs a lot of votes. Middle class people who have obeyed the laws and played by the rules and are struggling should not be expected to defend the ultra rich who obviously have not - Bank bailouts, tax loopholes, off shore accounts.
No one can deny that there is a growing disparity in wealth in this country and that the middle class is vanishing. All folks have to do is look at their pay checks this month and see how they were gouged with a FICA hike which disproportionately affects them in comparison to the new tax hikes on the rich. And what about all the pork for the film industry etc in the new tax bill.
Repubs are on the wrong side of this and it allows the left to paint us as the party of the country club set. Why are we swallowing this line when we know in our hearts it is not true. The wealthy pay more of the country’s taxes because there is a giant gaping divide in wealth. They hold the vast majority of the country’s wealth. The taxes they pay or evade affect them a lot less than some poor sucker making $30,000 with three kids to feed.
While there is nothing wrong with being wealthy, Romney certainly didn’t help the cause of the Republican Party and the Rich with his incredible disconnect with the vast majority of Americans who don’t have overseas bank accounts.
Romney was so obtuse that he failed to comprehend the bad “optics” of his La Jolla mansion’s car elevator, his wife’s dressage horses, his comments about the 47%, his “my friends own NASCAR race cars” comment, his “my wife owns several Lincolns” comment, his tax secrecy, and his snubbing of sanitation workers.
The GOP Establishment is so wedded to wealthy, out-of-touch, country club candidates and so venomously hostile to GENUINE, Bible believing conservatives, that a viable future of the party is hard to imagine.
The Republican “brand” is dead. Most Americans view Republicans as buffoons and hypocrites. The sooner a GENUINE conservative party replaces the GOP, the better.
