The outward agenda of the Republican Party used to be:
Fiscal responsibility in public office.
Clear gender roles with husband as breadwinner.
Strict privacy regarding sex and religion.
Separation of church and state.
Ultimate decorum in public places.

Now they support a pistol packing mamma as breadwinner with a husband who does nothing but diaper duty as their first family.
They scream,holler and wave signs in the streets about other people's sexuality.
They've turned their churches into anti-Christian political organizations.
And the only presidential administration during my lifetime to operate on a balanced budget and not create a deficit, was not Republican.

It is getting worse and worse for Republicans, i was always wondering how American peoples endure Bush and Co. for 8 years, but they did it,

ON the innauguration day, when Bush happeared, and that there was Boooo!!!! all over the place and Na na na na eh eh eh goodbye, i just knew that they endure it, but boy now they really were telling what they felts all of those years especially on the second term. I was surprised none of the less, but then at this moment i knew, that american peoples were really happy about the outcome, and were very mad at Bush, Cheney administration.

They didn't just endure Bush, they voted him in for a second term. The reason is because the average Republican voter doesn't really understand the agenda of the men who control the Republican Party. The real movers are not the candidates like Bush and Palin. They are only pawns.

The real controllers of the Republican party want a two class system in America - the very rich and the very poor.

This can only be accomplished by destroying the institutions that created the middle class - free public education, unemployment benefits, labor unions, public health departments, regulation of big business, etc. most of which are paid for by taxes. By eliminating taxes, the Republicans can turn the U.S. into a third world country overnight, which they almost succeeded in doing.

They have generally won elections by pandering to whatever right wing cause is popular at the time - evangelicals, opposing abortion, opposing gay marriage, etc. even though the core Republican movers care nothing about these issues. However, they went too far when they selected Mrs. Palin as their candidate. Even mainstream Republicans who were the least bit intelligent couldn't go along with that.

You can say that of the Democrats. The power behind the Bushes was Wall Street. The power behind the Democratic party is money as well. Sample: UAW of the auto workers.

Right on. And now Obama is using our money to bail out the auto industry in payment to the uaw for their support.

You boxed the entire Original Post and said it was about the Democrats as well. It certainly is not. The Democratic Party created the middle class with FDR's New Deal and has been shoring it up ever since. The only thing you can say about both parties is that there is other power in the parties besides the candidates.

Obama is using our money to try to restore the security of all of us, including you. He's using tried and true methods advocated by the best economists. Thank goodness he doesn't just sit around and whine and criticize others. He's a man with a plan.

I can counter that entire thing in 1 question. Why? What good would turning America into a 3rd world country possibly do for the "movers of the Republican Party?" The Middle Class are the ones keeping the economy going. There the ones that actually buy things. Think about it. The poor don't have enough to buy anything, and the rich have everything they could want to begin with. If you destroy the Middle Class, you destroy the economy. If you destroy the economy then there ARE no classes. Everyone would be poor. So what would your strange theory benifit them?

No,everyone would not be poor in this country if the economy continues going downhill. The super rich are so heavily invested in foreign investments and Swiss banks that they are not dependent on a healthy U.S. economy. Obama recently started an initiative to track these foreign investments of U.S. citizens for tax purposes.

And incidentally, it's not my strange theory. It's a well documented publication by a Princeton economist. The title is "The Wrecking Crew".

But who would buy their products? If the rest of the people become so poor, there'd be no 1 left to keep the economy running. It doesn't matter how much they have invested in other countries, they can only do that because foreign companies make lots of money in the US market. That's why the economic problems here are affecting so many countries abroad. It's simple. If they're smart they can clearly see the economically suicidal problems of turning every 1 into very poor peasants. If they're stupid and think this will actually work, then they're to stupid to keep their companies going and make smart investments.



Much of this is true in the long cycle. Dictatorships of the rich rarely last forever. But they're not concerned about the long cycle.

I would not call the Republican CEO's stupid who have drained money out of companies with their exhorbitant salaries and bonuses and then caused the company to collapse. They are mean but not stupid. They're not concerned about preserving the company for the long cycle.

There is another category of wealth that is inherited and some of these heirs are not too bright. But they generally don't run companies.

The United States has been borrowing money from foreign countries for over 50 years. These foreign countries would survive ok if our economy fails. There would be a momentary glitch in their economy if we don't pay them back or buy their products, but at least their own governments wouldn't be setting them up for failure like the core Republican movers are tying to do to the U.S.

I don't believe the average Republican voter is in on these things. All they see are the distractions the core movers put up, such as the pistol packing mamma from Alaska and her diaper duty husband. But evem this pair could accomplish what the core movers want:
deregulation of big business,no taxes for the rich, and an end to public services.

I think you accidentally posted this nonsense in the wrong board. It should be correctly filed under conspiracy theories.
