    Here in Lexington Virginia, many people still call the Civil War “The War of Northern Aggression.”

    There are quite a few folks, myself included, who believe Lincoln, as great a man as he was, overstepped his bounds…

    The Republicans in congress are doing their job very well. If they can’t accomplish anything that Obama won’t veto, then they can stall so that the Democrats can’t accomplish anything either. Their intention is to keep everything just as it is, unless they can manage to return to the “good old days” of the 19th century, before there was a middle class and when only the landed gentry were voters. And, they have a great strategy for accomplishing this:

    1. Disenfranchise everyone you possibly can, unless they are dependable Republican voters.
    2. Produce ads and media emphasis which emphasizes those politicians who are corrupt and incompetent. Paint all Democrats with the same slime. Lacking sufficient actual slime, simply make some up. This undermines the people’s trust in their government and makes them feel like helpless pawns, so they tune out the whole process and accept the status quo.
    3. Support the “job creators”, who are the recipients of a huge portion of the GNP, although that GNP was produced by working people, who are receiving less benefit from it every day. This gives them the money to accomplish the other two goals, and leaves everyone except the “job creators” with increasingly less money to mount a counter campaign.
    So, this is the way we are going lose the middle class and become a country inhabited only by the very rich 1%, and a 99% who are too busy working two jobs to survive to notice.

    DLee4144: 3. This is essentially what serfs were in the Republican “good old days” of feudalism. They weren’t sold like slaves, but were bound to the land so that if their owners lost the land, they went with it to the new noble. This is similar to corporate takeovers, in which the workers remain with the company, no matter who owns it.
    .
    The delusion is that feudalism, state communism, and capitalism are different. The only difference is in who the ruler is: feudalism is the hereditary aristocracy, communism the presidium of the central committee, and capitalism the overlapping directors of the Forbes 500.

    I see you’re another one who delusional enough to pick a side. Choosing either party to side with is not in the long-term best interest of the county as a whole.

    Or you get to have your invading army of illegal aliens run rampant across the border, or you get exorbitant salaries and benefits for lazy, entitled government workers via the corrupt unions, or you get sent someone else’s hard earned money every month for doing absolutely nothing…
