WARNING: OPINION ON AMERICAN POLITICS FOLLOWS


I want to know why Congressional Republicans are so determined to cause so many millions of Americans real, prolonged, unnecessary suffering, so multi-millionaires and multi-national corporations can have even more money in their pockets. I want to know why so many millions of our fellow Americans have no voice in government, when their numbers vastly outweigh the 1% of multi-millionaires. I want to know why the government of this country thinks that corporations are people who should be given more and more, but actual human beings should just suck it up and work harder.

I know it’s a silly cliché to ask why someone hates America, but it sure seems like the modern GOP truly hates Americans … or at least the vast majority of us — certainly the least among us who have to struggle just to keep their heads above water. I can’t believe that anyone in this country who isn’t lucky enough to be in the 1% the GOP cares about can support a group of people who are just so profoundly cruel and devoid of compassion.

Remember: this nation put men on the moon in less than ten years using technology that is eclipsed many times over by what we take for granted today in a disposable cell phone. If we can do that, we can do anything, including easing the profound suffering of our citizens. We live in extraordinary times, and we need a government that can rise to the challenge to serve its people. The congress we have right now couldn’t put a man on the moon in ten years, or even twenty years. Hell, they couldn’t even put a man on a chair, because that would require extending a hand to him to help him stand up.
