Inequity along with the drive to make American lives impossible

I just don’t understand the Congresssional Republicans’ drive to fully undermine any aspect of Americans’ daily lives that doesn’t fit their ideological model. It’s infuriating, yet sad, that they’ve become beholden to the wealthiest .0002% of the populace and defending this corrupt status quo. In addition to that, it’s like they’re trying to return to Jim Crow again, especially by trying to use law enforcement to harass racial & demographic minorities. This happens at the same time as them advocating for more people to be let off of the social safety net and throwing up more election barriers designed to deny people their right to vote. Honestly, I’m at a real loss, and I’m getting even more pissed off by the minute just thinking about it. I think that people need to wake up and see that +The Tea Party is not what it seems, and have become a major force in pushing for this far-right agenda extened by the +Republicans.


I want all to understand, this is not all Republicans, but a very vocal and extreme fringe within the party, which can occasionally meet out violence. It was this very same fringe that produced the #OklahomaCityBombing of 1995, as well as the recent uptick in exceedingly racialized commentary here in America ever since +Barack Obama became the +President Of The United States on January 20, 2009. Additionally, don’t think too hard for other examples, because there are plenty, some here at home and others abroad, thanks to these lunatics for the last 50-60 years or so. However, I think I’d like to keep the events as current as possible, going no further back than 1992, when Bill Clinton was elected President over George H.W. Bush.

Mostly though, my drive for writing on this comes primarily from +House Republicans‘ attempts to hold the American public hostage, along with the +Senate GOP,  to effect their ideological policy model and cause them absolute chaos in the process. This is not the way to govern, and this is certainly not the way that +Ronald Reagan would have wanted see +The Republican Party use their political power.  I can never understand their wanting to create such instability just for the sole purpose of scoring political points. Are the Republicans seriously this inept and out of sync with the whole of the American electorate? Sadly I believe the answer is a big YES, since they’re more interested in keeping their corporate backers happy and their wallets full of donations from these same people. I have to conclude by saying that this is the worst corruption and contempt for working Americans seen in this country since the Gilded Age.
