There's A Rich Conservative Base, And Then There's The Other One...


We often hear the refrain that the GOP is made up of a few smart, rich people - and whole lot of poor, stupid ones...so let's take a look to see why that happens.

First, we know that the poor dumb Sheeplets think Conservatism is peachy keen while the rich have a hearty laugh at their expense...

"GOP BASE KEEPS FOCUS ON BASHING THE POOR, 1%ERS LAUGH THEIR WAY TO THE BANK (IMAGES)."

"Americans living in poverty have enough to worry about without being constant targets of the GOP and its base. The corporate masters have devised a plan that is unfortunately working:  Keep the voters ignorant to our real issues by blaming those less fortunate.

"The poor, the disabled, and the hungry have a target on their backs.  Rather than address the issue with common sense solutions like raising the minimum wage, a jobs bill that isn’t Keystone XL, and affordable education, the GOP has decided that labeling the poor as 'lazy' and 'incompetent' people who refuse to work because they have it much better on government assistance is a cheaper way out.


"It allows more money to be funneled to those who pull their strings. More importantly, it gives their base something to hate, and hate equals votes..."

Of course it isn't just the cash that makes the average Conservative politician con his poorer supporter, it's the power motive too...



...and the extremist leadership needs stupid people to swallow all those lies.



And lying takes talent!



Turning stupid people into extremists is not only easy, you can make them into different varieties of stupid too...



When you're really stupid, you have a hard time figuring what some of the richest people want for you...



...so you'll swallow just about everything they tell you, even while you and your children are starving...



...as long as they don't call you names!



But why do they want to do this to their own supporters, you ask...



It's easy, and here's the long answer - ignore it and you keep on voting for them every single time.

"GOP Governors Slash Education To Grow Their Ignorant Base."

"Americans who have lived longer than 30 years are likely aware that fascist Republicans and their corporate money machine have had enormous success whittling away at the idea that America is a representative democracy despite counsel from a Founding Father on how best to preserve the nation. Thomas Jefferson knew, and said, that 'an educated citizenry is a vital requisite for our survival as a free people.' However, because Republicans depend on 'the widespread ignorance of objective reality,' their fascist threat to democracy is only succeeding due to the abundance of ignorance and gross stupidity of America’s uneducated citizenry.  Subsequently, Republicans are building on their success and slashing education funding at a record pace to produce an entire population of stupid conservative voters.

"A couple of years ago a survey asked 1,000 Americans to take the U.S. citizenship test and surprisingly, only 38% of them failed miserably. The number is obviously higher today and at the rate Republicans in Congress and particularly red states are slashing education funding, it is not going to get better any time soon; if ever. Republicans could not exist as a viable political party without overwhelming numbers of ignorant, and frankly intensely stupid, Americans, and announcements from at least three Republican governors over the past month inform they are intent on adding to the number of Republican voters by creating the next generation of stupid Americans.

"The latest Republican to announce severe cuts to education is Illinois’ Governor Bruce Rauner. Rauner told lawmakers that 'It’s time to make education our top priority again – and that’s what this budget does.' He promptly cited the benefits to education in his 'turnaround budget' that slashes $209 million from the state’s higher education budget. Rauner said the education cuts are just one of several 'difficult choices no one wants to make,' and then stressed the importance of filling the gaping $6.2 billion budget hole the state faces in the coming fiscal year. His turnaround budget plan includes no effort to raise taxes, close corporate tax loopholes, or raise revenue in any way; a typical Republican fiscal scenario playing out in red states across America. Illinois Republicans have spent the past four years giving the rich and corporations generous tax cuts that created the 'gaping $6.2 billion budget hole.' It is exactly like the Kansas 'trickle down' model that stupid Kansas voters continue supporting as their governor Sam Brownback proposes more education cuts.

"Barely a month ago, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal told conservatives in Washington D.C. just how incredibly important public education was as a fundamental pillar of America’s democracy. Jindal asked the audience, 'Why is it important to fund and support public education? Because if we want to keep the republic we have, we need an educated population with critical thinking skills. I always hear from parents, from the Chamber of Commerce, from business groups that we’ve got to fund education.' Jindal’s funding solution was immediately cutting the state college budget by over $300 million; or about a third of the system’s total budget.  Even Louisiana Republican Senator David Vitter slammed Jindal’s gifts to the rich and corporations and accused him of 'exacerbating the state’s outrageous deficit woes by recklessly expanding tax breaks for the wealthy...'"

It's not nice to make fun of stupid people, unless they're Conservative Sheeplets tarnished with a ton of meanness to go along with their stupidity.

The sad thing about them is that they don't know they're stupid and in some cases they even pride themselves on their idiocy as they thrive on skits starting with, "You might be a redneck if..."

We can't outlaw stupidity, but we can outlaw greed and anti-American outlaws that the morons vote for by...

...criminalizing Conservatism!

"Very effective way to do this with a bunch of second graders, is take a picture
of 'The Lion King' for instance, and a teacher might say, 'Do you know that the
music for this movie was written by a gay man?' The message is: I’m better at
what I do, because I’m gay."
