How Conservatism Has "Worked" For America


The Congressional Budget Office has been a non-partisan body that has been keeping congressman relatively honest about financial matters of the country for ages, but the Conservatives have a plan for that...

Mainstream Media continues to ignore these type of stories that can affect millions of Americans.

Again we see how little the Republican Party cares about the People of this Country.  They have only one interest and that is the Control and exploiting of the People.

Paul Ryan’s budget is so horrible it has never been able to pass the mustard of the CBO.  Republicans find that no problem just get rid of the bi-partisan CBO and install a Right Wing Rubber Stamp Department.

The Sad part is most Americans will not know that the CBO is no longer reliable and will buy into the Lies of Paul Ryan and think that it is a good thing to give your Medicare and Social Security so that Billionaires can get bigger Tax Breaks.

Some other things on the Chopping Block is the ending of the Home Mortgage Interest and State Taxes as write offs from your Federal Tax returns.  There are others that will only hurt the Middle Class and Poor.

Veterans will massive cuts in their Benefits again all for the gain of the Millionaires of this Country.  Those poor Millionaires have it so bad.

“Even the Congressional Budget Office and the Social Security trustees appointed by the president say that Social Security is financially sound, without any changes for the next 40 to 50 years.” James Roosevelt

The deeply unpopular congress, whose approval rating hovers around a historic low of 10%, has voted to remove the child tax credit, the earned income tax credit and the mortgage interest deduction from the tax code starting with the 2014 fiscal year. The move is almost assured to solidify the perception of the 113th Congress of the United States as deeply disconnected from the struggles and desires of the populace it is supposed to serve. –

And how could they get this far, you ask? Here's just one of their methods to screw democracy over that the Cons put together...

"How Conservatives Abandoned Judicial Restraint, Took Over The Courts And Radically Transformed America."



"...President George W. Bush raided the Federalist Society’s membership to fill the courts with judges who shared his conservative outlook. The convention’s program boasts 15 federal appeals court judges who schlepped to the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. just to moderate a panel. The annual black tie dinner features Justice Clarence Thomas — another person who believes that federal child labor laws are unconstitutional — as the evening’s main event. And Justices Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito are in the audience despite the fact that they don’t even have a speaking slot at the convention this year. The judges and justices gathered in Washington are not there because they crave the spotlight or because they are doing someone a favor. They are there because the many men and somewhat fewer women who make up the Federalist Society are their people.

"Everyone likes to spend time with friends..."

The Cons also have a plan for our kids...



...showing that they have a love for democracy that just won't quit!



And their plan in winning the class warfare battle has just begun to work...



It's a little different from that old-fashioned democracy we used to have...

Sometimes I just need to be inspired by one of the Kennedy’s to get focused.

"Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total; of all those acts will be written the history of this generation."
Robert Kennedy. 

WHAT GAMES DO WE PLAY

Because of this last election we are entering a period where the Republicans are going to make America pay for electing a Black President for two terms.  

They are going to be coming after many things such as Social Security and Medicare.  But there are many more things they will be after such as write offs for your Home Mortgage and State Taxes.  

Sad thing the Republicans, have nothing at all good for the American People.  All they want to do is exploit the people of this country to serve their masters the Oligarchs 

Back in 1955, corporations used to contribute nearly 30 percent of the federal taxes collected; today it's just 9 percent and dozens of the most successful U.S. businesses pay their CEO’s more every year than they contribute to their country in taxes.

But in the end, it's their words that are killing us...

Photo: WORDS 

Where do you want to go in this world? Where do you want America to go? 

Words can be so enjoyable, so educational yet words can be used for hate and fear. 

The Patriot Act was rammed down the throats of the American People all based on Lies and Fear.

Right now we have Republicans attending classes at the ALEC Corporation to learn how to present to you why you should give up your Social Security and Medicare so we can give massive tax Breaks to the Millionaires of this country.

I ran a Post on how Rural America turned Conservative all based on Right Wing Brainwashing of the American People that is blasted on the AM air waves all over the country and this have been going on for over 20 years.

Quotes from my Book -- The Party of Scrooge - History of American Politics

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." 
Quote from Benjamin Franklin.

"Fear just the word scares some people, Fear is the unknown, some people use Fear to control others, some people live their whole lives in Fear. Knowledge is the foil to Fear. We must all seek out that Knowledge that unlocks our Fears"
Jeff Carlson

"Conservatism is a partially heritable personality trait that predisposes some people to be cognitively inflexible, fond of hierarchy, and inordinately afraid of uncertainty, change, and death. People vote Republican because Republicans offer "moral clarity"—a simple vision of good and evil that activates deep seated fears in much of the electorate."
Jonathan Haidt, 
Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Virginia.

"The power of words whether it is the Spoken or Written word transcends The Human Race. Walk through the doors of a library and you have opened the doors to History, Love, Adventure, Science and all our Cultures. Read the words of books and it will open your eyes forever."
Jeff Carlson.

...especially when those words are the kind lies that con artists love...

For those of you who don't follow the news because you have more important things to do, here's a typical Conservative...



He knows all about words and the Big Lie, because HE'S studied history...



Because it's a funny thing how you believe those lies...



But it's not THAT funny, because it takes more than just the one liar to make a good lie work...


********************

When a nation finds itself believing the lies of Conservatism, thus allowing the criminals in the Conservative "movement" to take over the country, it's obvious that the People are actually Sheeple.

What would the world be like today if the German people back in the 30's had recognized that the Nazis were criminals hiding under a cloak of respectability, their party a nice hidey-hole for the worst criminals in their society?

A voting rate of a third of the eligible voters in America is a signal that all is lost unless we get rid of these Cons.

It's way past time to criminalize Conservatism!
