Most Republicans do not know how they are being deceived and betrayed.

In fact, they would not believe you if you told them or showed them.

However, they are.

Republicans, like Democrats, depend on Social Security and Meals on Wheels, and Medicare, and safe medicine, and safe food, and protection from the local police, and safe drinking water.

They depend on the roads being in good shape when they need to drive somewhere. They want their schools to educate the children, just like Democrats.

Although it would probably not be at the top of their list, they also want to know they are safe when they fly and when they land in an airplane.

Most Republicans do not want any of the above destroyed or done away with. They rely on government just like Democrats do. This is America. They helped to build it also.

But their leaders are deceiving them. A few extremists in their Party have taken over their entire Party apparatus and are looking to not only cut government, but to destroy government. The very government that Democrats and Republicans have build together. That is the unvarnished truth.

When they say they want to "save" Social Security and Medicare, they are deceiving their followers. They do not want to "save" it - they want to destroy it. Their leaders are betraying them.

Our government is not evil. Both Democrats and Republicans built this government. It is unfortunate that some of the most highly respected people in the Republican Party has had a strategy to destroy this government for over 30 years.

The debt that we now have tied around our necks was put there intentionally. It was part of the plan. And with this sequestration, Republicans and Democrats are going to suffer equally, if they do not do something about it. That is as fair and balanced as I can be...

1. The GOP is mainly an alliance of 3 factions

 

1. Upper class, business owners
2. Religious right
3. Libertarians

That's why they seem to always be in a civil war, yet they never break up because there is nowhere else for any of those groups to go. The Democrats are a common enemy of all three in different ways. They don't always like each other. Go to a forum with libertarians and they make fun of Palin and Santorum even more than we do. But they would vote for them because they consider the Democrats a greater evil.

And this is why the GOP royally SUCKS when they are in power. They look like a mess and the party is plagued with turf battles. But because of the common enemy factor, they make a really effective opposition party. They know how to kill bills and gum up the works. The ACA barely made it through even with strong Democrat majorities. That's why gun control is a lost cause.

4. 3 factions

The stupid rich
The stupid middle class
The stupid poor

Many of the stupid poor live around here and vote against themselves. Complain about the takers except they are the takers.

2. Republicans have this notion or idea that the government is evil and out to get them

 

It's not true. The government is here to help you. We need more government....not less like the Republicans say we do.

As far as the debt that is 100% the responsibility from the Republicans. They are trying to spend us into a collapse. How do we stop them?

3. I'm going to try to show them.

All politics is local. You have to show them where they live. Start there, and work your way up.
