Yesterday, voters all over America went to the polls and decided to give control of our Congress to the Republicans and Teabaggers, again. What does that mean for America? Well, it’s not like the Republican party doesn’t have a track record, they do. In 1929 we had a Republican Congress and a Republican President, the result, a decade of world-wide depression. In the first decade of the 21st century we had a Republican Congress and a Republican President, the result, 2 wars and a world-wide economic collapse. Millions of Americans lost their jobs and their homes; around 5,000 soldiers died and around 30,000 were rendered disabled. The policies of President Bush and the Republican Congress created an atmosphere in which terror groups grew to such numbers that we are no longer safe in our own homes, on our own soil.
Today, the middle class is all but gone. Republicans do not believe that the working class should receive a living wage for their labor. They believe that ALL of America’s wealth is better off in the hands of the wealthy, and if you aren’t worth at least a few $billion, you deserve nothing but a refrigerator box in a back alley.
The Republican party has only one goal, to transfer ALL of America’s wealth to the rich and powerful.
This is what History tells us to expect from the new Republican Congress. And God help America, and the rest of the world, if we get a Republican President in 2016.
