    Default How great the USA would have been minus a right wing

    The very things that would enable it to thrive for all...health-wise, educationally, culturally, ecologically, etc. have been stymied and/or destroyed by the right. That is the sadness and shame of it all...the "what could have been." A decimated potential.

    Dear Red-State Trump Voter,
    Let’s face it, guys: We’re done.


    It is a tragedy that so much of the work that so many men and women toiled at for so long to make this a better country, and a better world, has been thrown away, leaving us all in such needless peril.

    This is why our separation in all but name is necessary.

    With Leftists running the US it would have ended up like the Balkans only poorer...

    There is nothing--NOTHING-- the Left would have contributed to America that was a positive. They'd have run it into the ground and divided it like a sausage grinder...

    A Day in the Life of Joe Republican
    Joe gets up at 6:00 am to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot full of good, clean drinking water because some liberal fought for minimum water quality standards. He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure their safety and efficacy. All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employer's medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance. Now Joe gets it too. He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs this day. Joe's bacon is safe to eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry. Joe takes his morning shower, reaching for his shampoo; his bottle is properly labeled with every ingredient and the amount of its contents because some liberal fought for his right to know the amount and identity of the substances he was putting on his body.

    Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air. He walks to the subway station for his government subsidized ride to work; it saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees. You see, some liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor to society. Joe begins his work day. He has a good job with excellent pay, medical benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Joe's employer upholds these standards because Joe's employer doesn't want his employees to call the union. If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed hell get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some Liberal didn't think he should lose his home because of his temporary misfortune.

    It's noon time, Joe needs to make a Bank Deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe's deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some liberal wanted to protect Joe's money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the depression. Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae-underwritten mortgage and his below-market federal student loan because some stupid liberal decided that Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his lifetime.

    Joe is home from work, and he plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive to his dad's; his car is among the safest in the world be cause some wacko liberal (Ralph Nader!) fought for car safety standards. He arrives at his boyhood home. He was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmer's Home Administration because bankers didn't want to make rural loans. The house didn't have electricity until some big government liberal stuck his nose where it didn't belong and demanded rural electrification. He is happy to see his dad who is now retired. His dad lives on Social Security and his union pension because some liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe wouldn't have to.

    After his visit with dad he gets back in his car for the ride home. He turns on a radio talk show. The host keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. He doesn't tell Joe that his beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefi that Joe enjoys throughout his day. Joe agrees. "We don't need those big government liberals ruining our lives", he says. "After all, I'm a self-made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have".

    The Republicans have never been the same since Nixon turned out to be a crook!

    It's as if they are still trying to blame the Democrats for his getting caught.

    This is also where they started accusing the Media of being biased and claiming to being victimized by them.

    AND SO THE PERSONAL ATTACKS ON JIMMY CARTER BEGAN. DAMNING HIM IF HE DID- AND DAMNING HIM IF HE DIDN'T- AND CLAIMING HE WAS THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER. Politics got meaner and nastier on their side of the aisle- and it just became a way of their party.

    It has become a political standard for them- YOU MUST HATE YOUR POLITICAL ADVERSARIES TO BE ON BOARD WITH THEM.

    Lie- Cheat- Steal- KILL- anything to win.

    And so, may I introduce you to the result of all of their decades of pent up hatred for others- THEIR CHOSEN LEADER- THE SOUL OF THEIR PARTY- DONALD TRUMP!

    Donald Trump saw this huge ball of hate- and said to himself- I can exploit this hatred for my own financial benefit- I can totally corrupt all three branches of the government and abuse my Executive powers to keep myself out of jail! I could even kill someone on 5th avenue in broad daylight, and they would still worship me and kiss my ass!

    AND EVEN AFTER ALL OF THIS GOING ON FOR 4 LONG YEARS- THEY ALL VOTED FOR HIM AGAIN!

    Whoever said- "Hate Begets Hate"- knew exactly what they were talking about.

    Hateful people want the most hateful people they can find to be their leaders!

    Republicans- You earned it- YOU ARE NOW OFFICIALLY THE PARTY OF HATRED, CORRUPTION, and ANARCHY!




    White Nationalist marching in Charlottesville- Donald Trump referred to them as "Good People"!

    Let's see...

    The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) of 1974 was Republican and signed into law by Richard Nixon.
    The first food and drug law was passed in 1906 and signed into law by Teddy Roosevelt, a Republican

    Widespread use of medical insurance came about as a result of FDR's wage and price controls in WW 2 forcing employers to find "wages-in-kind" to entice a tight labor market to work for them. It was bad policy that created that situation.

    The Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA) of 1972 was another Republican / Nixon thing...


    Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air. He walks to the subway station for his government subsidized ride to work; it saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees.

He has a good job with excellent pay, medical benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Joe's employer upholds these standards because Joe's employer doesn't want his employees to call the union. If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed hell get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some Liberal didn't think he should lose his home because of his temporary misfortune.
    EPA? Nixon and Republicans
    Public transportation, mainly a Progressive / Leftist thing is a poor quality, inefficient, and unprofitable system of transportation that few use unless they have no choice. I guess "Joe" was forced into it by other bad Leftist policies.... It takes Joe three times longer to get to work than if he drove, and when he gets there he sees an article in the paper about Democrats wanting to raise his taxes to offset the major losses public transit is suffering...

    National Highway Safety Administration? 1970 Republicans and Nixon...

    Better look up the history of unions. Almost nothing Joe enjoys was because of them. That's why he isn't in one today...


    It's noon time, Joe needs to make a Bank Deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe's deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some liberal wanted to protect Joe's money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the depression. Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae-underwritten mortgage and his below-market federal student loan because some stupid liberal decided that Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his lifetime.
    Um, that's the the FDIC created in 1932 by the Glass Steagall act in a bi-partisan vote by Congress. It isn't due to anything "liberal(s) wanted."
    That Joe took out a student loan is on him. If he can't repay it, that too is on him. But because universities saw a cash cow in student loans Joe's education costs were double what they otherwise would have been as the university milked him for everything they could using the student loan system.

    Joe is home from work, and he plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive to his dad's; his car is among the safest in the world be cause some wacko liberal (Ralph Nader!) fought for car safety standards. He arrives at his boyhood home. He was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmer's Home Administration because bankers didn't want to make rural loans. The house didn't have electricity until some big government liberal stuck his nose where it didn't belong and demanded rural electrification. He is happy to see his dad who is now retired. His dad lives on Social Security and his union pension because some liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe wouldn't have to.
    NHSA-- Nixon and Republicans, remember?
    Depends on where his dad's farm is as to whether it go put into that program... But since Progressive Leftists want to tax the snot out of inheritances, Joe isn't going to see anything out of it when his father passes. Instead the big government state will take the property and do whatever with the money, but nothing for Joe...

    After his visit with dad he gets back in his car for the ride home. He turns on a radio talk show. The host keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. He doesn't tell Joe that his beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefi that Joe enjoys throughout his day. Joe agrees. "We don't need those big government liberals ruining our lives", he says. "After all, I'm a self-made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have".
    This is because the Leftist writing the above has been fed a lifetime of bullshit and lies by other Leftists in the hopes that he'll believe that and bring about a Socialist-totalitarian state run by either Fascists or Communists...

    What were the goals of the revolution?

    To fee the American colonies from a totalitarian Monarchy
    To give Americans a whole slew of rights no other country on the planet at that time got
    To keep government out of American's lives to the maximum extent possible

    If it were Leftist, it'd have looked more like the French revolution. That is, once successful, a dictatorship would have taken over, large numbers of people executed, and a strong central government formed.

    A country with terrific resources and great schools would have gone broke? Yeah, you really thought that one out. You are just so anti-left, that you cant think. The left has run this country after right-wing messes over and over.

    Any country goes broke when the Left runs it. Look at the USSR. Russia had, and has incredible resources. Their schools sucked. The Nazis ran Germany into the ground. Chavez and Maduro took a thriving country and destroyed in less than 20 years. Castro took Cuba from the top economy to the second worst and kept it there. Only Haiti was worse.

    Even the French revolution. That gave the world Napoleon and several decades of unending war. The Left fucks everything they touch up.

    Blue America has Silicon Valley, Wall Street, and Hollywood. Red America has..... Fracking, but American fracking is dependent on the easy money from Wall Street, and the technology developed in California... Well Red America has.... Some good universities, but they would quickly lose them as the best and the brightest fled back to the USA.

    Interesting that you would reference the Balkans. They would have done well had it not been for the constant secessionist violence... And that is all the alt right has to offer, a threat of violence.
