Is the GOP despicable, working only for their rich backers?

Really, what have they done for America lately? Work to keep the tax cuts for the rich, and cut social programs for Americans. Oh and there is all that blaming President Obama. But what have they done to improve the quality of life? Anyone?

    Democrats love to tax the rich. The problem is anyone who earns a paycheck is considered rich. With a few exceptions, I regard most people who support Obama and his agenda as ignorant, indoctrinated and/or apathetic. To me, the assault on our liberties by the Left is just short of treasonous. To fully appreciate what we have, I highly recommend to anyone, especially liberal/Progressives, to read the book, "The 5000 Year Leap." Of course, I would expect less than 1% would ever care to delve into American history and principles as it's easier to turn on MSNBC, CNN or any other leftist media outlet.

    Any fool who can read a book knows our liberties are under attack from the government raising taxes, socialized medicine, election fraud and more. Our speech is more closely scrutinized, TSA agents are groping (illegal searches) at airports, parental rights are violated, and on and on and on.

    Better yet, in which ways would you say you have more liberty than what you had four years ago? Is your life much better? Would you say your bank account is worth a lot more than 4 years ago? How about the equity in your home? Are people beating the door down with top dollar offers? Would you say job opportunities are better and if you do have a job, are you working as many hours or have sales risen? Do you feel safer knowing Obama will cut our military with the additional flexibility he would get with a second term like he promised the Russians? Is there more discretionary money in your purse because the price of gas has dropped since the DEMs took over in 2007? Is the amount of debt your grandchildren and great-grandchildren will have to pay off a comfort to you because of asinine fiscal policies by the current administration who has piled up more red ink than all the other presidents combined?

    You ascribe all the economic hardships of coming out of a recession to losing liberty?
    And yet you seem to have forgotten the cause. Needless wars, wall street and banks betting unchecked. The country is still finding its way, but not with help from people like yourself. The government needs to raise revenues to pay its debts. ( Like paying for needless wars it started) We do not have socialized medicine, voting fraud is minuscule at best with only about 89 cases, out of millions of voters. TSA agents are doing the best they can to keep the flying public safe, and they screen millions. So again what liberties have you lost?

    Hahaha, right, and Barack Obama is backed by ONLY the common people. He didn't see to it that one of his biggest Bundlers (bungler is more correct) with half a billion in US taxpayers money for a business that was off the radar for loans (Solyndra), he hasn't worked to give his union minions millions if not billions in give aways, his previous campaign wasn't funded by the very people he has spent 3 1/2 years demonizing, threatening and/or sicking HIS SEC and DOJ on. No, Mr. Controlled by International concerns is pure as the driven snow.

    GM paid back most of that money. If they hadn't received taxpayer-backed loans, America wouldn't have an auto industry today.

    Yes, actually, China is importing US-built cars. That's a good thing for America.

    You can not make such generalized blanket statements about an entire diverse group. You could make such a statement about their platform, their policy committee or even their leaders, but when you include their rank and file, such statements are invalid.

    No - only those democrats who post crap like this.


    Those “Evil, Rich People” that Democrats are always wailing about are actually – Democrats.

    In fact, the Top 4 on the list: Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Larry Ellison, Christy Walton are all Democrats. Together, they are worth $150 Billion Dollars.

    Some of the most Vocal democrats are a majority of Hollywood, George Soros, Warren Buffett, John Kerry, the Kennedy family to name a few. In congress there are Twenty-seven Democrats along with 23 Republicans make up the 50 richest in Congress; 30 House members and 20 senators are on the list.

    The rest of the top 10 are Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.), McCaul, Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.), Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-Fla.), Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), Rep. Jane Harman (D-Ca.), and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).

    An analysis of the Top 20 Richest People in America (from Forbes Top 100) reveals that a full 60% are actually Democrats. Furthermore, if you eliminate the duplication caused by people from the same family being included in that Top 20 list (Wal-Mart & Koch) that ratio widens even further to: 25% Republican / 75% Democrat.

    Analyzing the data takes us even further. Not only are there more Democrats in the Top 20 list, but those Democrats are a lot more stingy with their money. Republicans coughed up $5.2 million while Democrats squirted out only $2.1 Million.

    Of course, there is no reason not to assume that the money they contribute to Special Interest groups wouldn’t match (or closely match) those of their chosen candidates. So when you add in the money from these groups you end up with Republican Contributions at $10 million while Democrats contributed only $6 million.

    Lest we not forget, Democrats outweigh Republicans. Not only in terms of the number of uber-millionaires, but also with their net worth. In this Top 20 group, Democrats have a combined net worth of $263.1 billion dollars while the Republicans have a combined net worth of only $143.9 billion dollars – almost half that of Democrats.

    It is still beyond me why Regular Working Class People will Vote Republican Against their own Interest.

    The Republicans want to lessen even more Burdens on the Rich and Corporate Polluters.

    Is it me or am I the only one that Gets it that when people work everyone gets better including the Rich. They get Richer. The Rich should be pounding the Republicans over the Head and their OBSTRUCTIONISM IN CONGRESS. They know this as well as Republicans.

    They would rather SLASH AND BURN the Country down and ROOT for FAILURE of the Economy to get President Obama out of Office. Does that border on INSANITY. Mitch McConnell, and NOW WE KNOW THE REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP PLOTTED on DAY ONE TO SABOTAGE the Presidency of Barack Obama.

    Should the Republicans be considered Terrorist and Detrimental to the Country? They have proven that when the Economy is in their Hands in goes into the Great Depression and the NEAR GREAT DEPRESSION of 2008 and that they Cannot Govern.

    What has happen to a once Reasonable Party? Hate and Bigotry has taken over.

    That may be True, but who owns the Corporations and the Media? There will not be a Democratic SUPER PAC out there that will be able to Match the BILLIONAIRES and their minions that is going to be Thrown against this President.

    The Republicans started right after he took the Oath trying to plot to NOT WORK with him to get the Economy back on its feet after the Bush Administration and Republicans Trashed it.

    Bless your heart - the facts do not match up with your words - believe what ever you wish, that is your right, however, you are relying on lies and distortions. The uber rich and rich are democrats - just the way it is. The president is a fraud and, if you believe what he says, then you are not thinking or researching. It is okay - you are not alone, there are many other lemmings who buy the rhetoric; I am not one of them.
