Grover Norquist the anti-tax lobbyist
is called the “billionaire’s best friend.”
He keeps the GOP in line and makes sure
they protect tax breaks for the wealthy
and give billions in federal subsidies
to America’s wealthiest corporations.
He stated, “My goal is to cut government
and get it down to the size where
we can drown it in the bathtub.”
The GOP uses tax cuts for the rich
to increase the national deficit.
When the GOP gets us in debt
and tanks the economy, they say
we need to cut social programs.
They want to drown policies like;
Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security
and policies that aid the general welfare
of the needy and the average American.
Norquist and Republicans do not want to drown
government policies benefitting the greedy rich
or their corporate donors.
When the Democrats get in power
they cut the deficit significantly.
The voters then go back and put the GOP
in power and it becomes lather, rinse, and repeat,
all over and the GOP suffers no consequences.
With no consequences we get no change.
The “prosperity gospel” flipped Christ’s teachings.
Now we have the message that greed is good
and that we should blame the poor for their plight.
Many Americans have taken single issue bait
and vote for the party of the wealthy.
A large percent of our citizens don’t bother
to vote in any of our elections.
The GOP looked at that and has decided
we do not care at all about Democracy.
They have decided to make voting
as hard a process as they can.
Will you finally decide to vote,
or let democracy commit suicide?
“The vote is the most nonviolent tool we have.” ~ John Lewis
