The Republican's Guide To Compassionate Conservatism


The "Republican's Guide To Compassionate Conservatism" complements the Tea Baggers' "Contract On America."



"For the better part of the past year, Republicans have tried to come up with a new agenda for the American people with mixed results. However, with the Tea Party now the most potent force in Republican politics, and with the recent launch of the Tea Party Caucus on Capitol Hill garnering the support of Republican leaders like National Republican Congressional Committee Chair Pete Sessions and Republican Caucus Chair Mike Pence, the Republican Party agenda has become clear. Republican leaders and Tea Party-supported Republican candidates can now rally around the "Republican Tea Party Contract on America" as the blueprint for how they would govern.
  • 1. Repeal the Affordable Care Act (Health Insurance Reform)
  • Put insurance companies back in charge, repeal tax credits for small businesses, allow insurance companies to deny coverage based on preexisting conditions and to drop coverage when a person gets too sick and make prescription drugs for seniors less affordable.
  • 2. Privatize Social Security or phase it out altogether
  • Turn the guaranteed retirement benefits of America's seniors over to Wall Street CEOs by putting Social Security at risk in the stock market or, as some Republicans have called for, phase out Social Security altogether and end a program millions of American seniors rely on for their survival.
  • 3. End Medicare as it presently exists
  • Phase out and end Medicare as it presently exists for future generations of seniors -- ending Medicare's guaranteed healthcare benefits for more than 40 million American seniors -- and replace it with a voucher system which will result in higher premiums and fewer services for seniors.
  • 4. Extend the Bush tax breaks for the wealthy and big oil
  • At a cost of nearly $700 billion, extend the Bush tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and big oil, which are set to expire and which have and will continue to explode the federal budget deficit.
  • 5. Repeal Wall Street Reform
  • Roll back the toughest consumer protections ever enacted, allow banks to continue to grow too big to fail, and ensure that predatory lenders continue to utilize their most abusive practices.
  • 6. Protect those responsible for the oil spill and future environmental catastrophes
  • Cap liabilities for those responsible for environmental disasters like the Gulf oil spill and let companies like BP decide which victims deserve compensation for the disaster and what the timeline for relief should be.
  • 7. Abolish the Department of Education
  • Put the big banks back in charge of student loans and put an end to federal assistance for public schools.
  • 8. Abolish the Department of Energy
  • End America's investments in a clean-energy future and disband the organization responsible for oversight of nuclear materials.
  • 9. Abolish the Environmental Protection Agency
  • Gut the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act -- which together protect our kids from air pollution and keep drinking water safe -- and disband the watchdog that holds polluters accountable.
  • 10. Repeal the 17th Amendment
  • Take away your right to pick your U.S. Senator.
Naturally, the Cons are rather coy about their compassion since they usually rave about things like this...


...because when you're a Republican, anything goes...


...when you have leaders like this guy.


You remember him, don't you?


He's trying to get ahead in politics, just like his friends...

...along with the help of a few patrons...


...because patrons like those are very important in today's politics...


...and because organization counts when you're protecting them...


...AND because they want to help the best and brightest Cons on their way to the White House...


...especially the ones who believe in "small government..."


...because that's what compassionate Conservatism is all about!


So NEVER, NEVER forget what compassionate Conservatism brought to us the last time...because it will happen again and again and again.


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



These accomplishments from the Democratic Party should be commonplace with any party when legislators do their job.

Under "compassionate" Conservatism, these accomplishments would NEVER have been past.

Because Conservatism's REAL goal - the rule by the rich - is compassionless, anti-American, and as criminal as can be in any democracy.

The Conservatism "movement" is nothing but the recruiting of the dumbest and meanest among us to further their goal of reducing the middle class and the poor to rubble.

So shouldn't we FINALLY be thinking of...

...criminalizing Conservatism?

Joyce, Jnr.
