Barbara Stanwyck: "We're both rotten!"

This article from an ex GOP guy who finally couldn’t take it anymore and confesses the lunacy and moral bankruptcy of the GOP.
He correctly admits both mainstream parties are lackeys of the corporate elite who rule America like a fiefdom, but he specifies that the GOP is
particularly evil and existentially worst even than the Democrats.
But both parties are not rotten in quite the same way. The Democrats have their share of machine politicians, careerists, corporate bagmen,
egomaniacs and kooks. Nothing, however, quite matches the modern GOP.
I entreat people here on ATS to read all of this article, for it exposes and crystallizes the mentality of the GOP. From the recent debacle of the
debt ceiling fight to various other machinations of the GOP the writer expresses his contempt for his past political party:
. . .but I could see as early as last November that the Republican Party would use the debt limit vote, an otherwise routine legislative procedure
that has been used 87 times since the end of World War II, in order to concoct an entirely artificial fiscal crisis. Then, they would use that fiscal
crisis to get what they wanted, by literally holding the US and global economies as hostages.
The debt ceiling extension is not the only example of this sort of political terrorism. Republicans were willing
to lay off 4,000 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) employees, 70,000 private construction workers and let FAA safety inspectors work without pay,
in fact, forcing them to pay for their own work-related travel - how prudent is that? - in order to strong arm some union-busting provisions into the
I have always been an independent and only deal with issues and not labels. In-fact I admit I am a progressive on some economic domestic issues, but I
agree 100 percent with Ron Paul on foreign issues, as well believe in the death penalty for murderers and am a firm supporter of the 2nd amendment and
don’t support gun control (I believe people kill not guns) and although am not pro life don’t like abortion and I am conservative on drugs and
crime, so I am not a partial democrat but support issues as they come, but it is clear that the GOP according to this guy has gone overboard and this
country is in danger if they gain total power again, I believe.
So I am not a partisan, as I have got on Obama’s back as much as anyone, but it is clear now that the GOP has gone way over to the dark side.
As for what they really believe, the Republican Party of 2011 believes in three principal tenets I have laid out below. The rest of their platform
one may safely dismiss as window dressing:
1. The GOP cares solely and exclusively about its rich contributors. The party has built a whole catechism on the protection and further
enrichment of America's plutocracy.
2. They worship at the altar of Mars. While the me-too Democrats have set a horrible example of keeping up with the Joneses with respect to
waging wars, they can never match GOP stalwarts such as John McCain or Lindsey Graham in their sheer, libidinous enthusiasm for invading other
3. Give me that old time religion. Pandering to fundamentalism is a full-time vocation in the GOP.
These 3 main beliefs of the GOP and much more, by this GOP ex-insider, are elaborated in-depth in the article
A couple more quotes from this article:
Having gutted private-sector pensions and health benefits as a result of their embrace of outsourcing, union busting and "shareholder value,"
the GOP now thinks it is only fair that public-sector workers give up their pensions and benefits, too. Hence the intensification of the GOP's
decades-long campaign of scorn against government workers.
If you think Paul Ryan and his Ayn Rand-worshipping colleagues aren't after your Social Security and Medicare, I am here to disabuse you of your
naiveté. They will move heaven and earth to force through tax cuts that will so starve the government of revenue that they will be "forced" to
make "hard choices" - and that doesn't mean repealing those very same tax cuts, it means cutting the benefits for which you worked.
check it out folks, very revealing:
