If there is any snippet of video that might actually expose you Republicans for the evil, cynical, human-hating species that you are, this might be it. Steve Bannon from Citizens United actually sits there wide-eyed and admits that the purpose of his movie is to take disillusioned Obama supporters and use them to defeat Barack Obama while at the same time being appalled that anyone would think it's an anti-Obama movie. Please.
You lizards think we're all idiots. With every day that passes, you play the public with Orwellian tropes because you don't have anything to actually back up your claims. In your world, all that needs to happen is for you to tell the world up is down, truth is fiction, fact is a lie, and we will simply forego the reality checks in order to allow you to get away with it.
Not only do you think we're stupid, you hate us. You think we're another barrier to cross in order to serve your billionaires, but that's about it. Your goal is to keep your woman-black-Latino-hater base one step away from rebellion, while stoking their most primitive human emotions in order to win. Your goal is never actually about public service. It's only about winning, and you're counting on stupidity and hate to let you do it.
Take, for example, the millions spent on a feature-length film intended to smear and "other" President Obama, produced and promoted by Dinesh D'Souza with billionaire backing from god-knows where and distribution via Mormon film distributors. Nothing intentional about that, is there?
Or the promise by the billionaires to spend a billion dollars on this election?
Or, when you realize you've lost just about everyone in the nation, the cynical effort to fall back on old, dangerous racial themes, no matter what the cost? So what if four active and ex-military lunatics spent $87,000 to stockpile weapons and bombs as part of their anti-government paranoia? It's not your fault, right? Money is speech. More money is more speech. Or so you say. Let us pause a moment to worship the almighty dollar.
Or perhaps your public trashing of Todd Akin while turning your delicate little heads while Paul Ryan and Tom Smith say the exact same thing? Did you think people wouldn't notice? Of course you did.
Or maybe John Boehner claiming Democrats declared the war on women while embracing the maleness of your party?
Or maybe the incessant hue and cry of your media arm, Fox News, about who built what while ignoring facts about who really built things?
Or maybe the fact that you've nominated a guy who not only invested in, but also actually promoted and created arrangements that were nothing more than pyramid schemes to strip companies of assets, lay off employees, and ultimately pile up mountains of debt financed by bankers here and abroad. And what happened to that pyramid scheme? It collapsed, remember? It collapsed and tanked the whole economy, and still rocks the international economy.
Yes, you nominated That Guy, the one who made his wealth by stripping it out of others' grasp, and who thinks nothing of avoiding taxes by implementing offshore schemes and moving money out of this country as a "wealth preservation measure."
Not only is your party the party of soulless fools, you also subscribe to the Scorched Earth society. "Winning" is all that matters to you people and you're perfectly willing to win by destroying the country in the process.
