There is a group of extremist right wing Republicans in the House of Representatives, coming almost exclusively from “Red States”. with particular emphasis in the South, that is out to destroy any chance of political stability in the nation.Â They are supported by many radio talk show hosts, including Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Laura Ingraham, Michael Savage, Mark Levin and Ann Coulter, among others.
They are in the process of causing the disintegration of a major political party, the Republicans of Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and even Ronald Reagan in their mad quest to take us back to the Gilded Age of the 19th century, as they pursue destroying the good faith and credit of the United States, and wiping out the reforms of the Progressive Era, the New Deal, and the Great Society.Â They want to shut down the government, and refuse to raise the debt limit, radical actions which would undermine our nation’s economic stability.
They promote racism, nativism, misogyny, and Islamophobia, and the worship of unbridled capitalism and the libertarian philosophy of Ayn Rand, mixed with a mean spirited view of Christianity toward the poor and the disabled, sick and elderly in American society.
They want to promote a high moral standard on society, while they do not practice it themselves, but spout extreme religious dogma, and they want to send America into wars overseas even though most of them have never served in the military, and would not allow their sons and daughters to sacrifice their lives in foreign crusades.
They have a hatred toward President Barack Obama bordering on obsessive-compulsive behavior, and many would applaud the demise of our President by violence, as they have no moral compass despite their claims of religiosity.
They find the leadership of their party as insufficiently conservative, attacking Speaker of the House John Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnnell, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, and Senator John McCain as examples of insufficient conservatism, considering them RINOS (Republicans In Name Only).
They call themselves the Tea Party Caucus, or the Freedom Caucus. or the Liberty Caucus, but their precise membership is fluid, but includes from three to four dozens members of the House of Representatives, with the greatest number from the major populated states of Texas and Florida, numbers two and three in population nationally.
They are holding the Speakership of the House of Representatives hostage, and the uncertainty about who the next Speaker will be, and what he will do on crucial budget issues, is undermining faith in our government. And the fact that the Speaker, whoever he is, is second in line for the Presidency under the Presidential Succession Act of 1947, endangers the Presidency itself, in case of an emergency!
â€œLiberals seem to assume that, if you donâ€™t believe in their particular political solutions, then you donâ€™t really care about the people that they claim to want to help.â€ TS
Quite agree! The Tea Party is a danger to the stability of our nation!
I second that Leia! The Professor speaks truth!
Progressive liberal Democrats are afraid of liberty.
I am Conservative Republican because I care about poor people.
Progressive policies increase the wealth gap
HAHAHAHA,Ariel, you are hilarious! You care as much about the poor as Ayn Rand did, which was NUNCA, NADA!
When is the last time conservatives and Republicans as a party (notice there are exceptions in the party), did ANYTHING to cut down the growing inequality of wealth? NUNCA, NADA!
In reality, Ariel is a Conservative Republican because he cares only about rich people.
Also, in reality, conservative policies increase the wealth gap.
The leading cause of poverty and economic stagnation is progressive policies of the Democrats.
In reality as well, Progressive and Liberal Democrats are NOT afraid of liberty.
In reality too, the leading cause of poverty and economic stagnation is conservative policies of the Republicans.
Ha! Ha! This conversation is hilarious!
Economic equality requires great deal of political inequality, which is the lack of freedom and rights.
Conservative Republicans I know are generally more thoughtful about how to help the poor than Progressive Democrats I know.
LOL! Our troll’s going to regret coming over here now!
Socialism and progressivism are just other names for demagoguery.
LOL! Conservative Republicans I know are generally LESS thoughtful about how to help the poor than Progressive Democrats I know.
Progressivism is a mental illness because it ignores human nature.
Conservatism is just another name for demagoguery.
Conservatism is a mental illness because it ignores human nature.
Conservatism isnâ€™t contagious, because personal responsibility, unlike progressivism, is not a virus.
Help Raise the Poor: Promote Capitalism!
LOL! Don’t Help Raise the Poor: Promote Unfettered Capitalism!
Under socialism and/or progressivism the Rich Get Poorer, But the Poor Get Poorer Too.
Ariel, do you work for a living, or do you live off Daddy’s money, and get dividends, and do not want to pay any taxes?
You have a lot of time to waste cluttering up this blog site, so maybe you are being paid to be a pest of a troll!
Me thinks I have hit the jackpot about you, and that you are a total farce!
LOL! They are just pearls of wisdom…LOL
You should lightened up. You take politics too seriously…LOL
LOL! This is so hilarious that I just spilled coffee all over my computer screen!
HAHA! Princess Leia, that is funny! LOL
But notice Ariel does not answer what I ask, interesting, isn’t it?
Oh yes I forgot! I am an evil multimillionaire who doesn’t want to pay taxes! LOL!!!
â€œEnraging liberals is simply one of the more enjoyable side effects of my wisdom.â€
Maybe he’s a robot troll. 😉
