Yessir, she’s the one.
I can choose not to work, but that’s on me - not on other taxpayers. That much I think is clear. Plus the $30T-60T pricetag is, shall we say, a wee bit astronomically ginormously too high?
It feels to me that the huge amount of taxes that Americans pay is treated by the politicians as their own money, to be spent in ways that will keep them and their cronies in office. Period. Some fool (sorry, 1.0 slipped in here for a second I took him out back and gave him a good thrashing)) like AOC would take OUR MONEY _OUR TAX MONEY - and use it like a slush fund. I do not have a survey on that fact.
“What is history but the story of how politicians have squandered the blood and treasure of the human race?” - TS. Think on that quote for a minute.
“If you have been voting for politicians who promise to give you goodies at someone else’s expense, then you have no right to complain when they take your money and give it to someone else, including themselves.”
Perhaps this is the true story? Is that what any of you believe? The fact that is almost entirely made up falsehoods doesn’t stop the media.
“Look in the mirror again. You’re a good person. You deserve better than these hateful shitbags, and so does the rest of the world. Fight them. Vote.”
There’s an election coming in less than two weeks , and before you go cast your vote, I’d just like to remind you of a simple fact, which is that Republicans hate you.
Even if you don’t think they hate your guts, I have a surprise for you: they do. Go look in the mirror. You seem nice enough, right? You just want to enjoy your life, get through your day with a minimum of fuss, and maybe do right by the people you love, yeah? Well, Republicans hate all that.
They don’t even WANT you to vote a week from Tuesday. They hate voters and they hate voting. They have worked with a religious fervor to game voting tallies in Missouri, and Tennessee, and North Dakota, and Ohio (we can thank the Supreme Court for that), and Florida, and North Carolina, and most notably in Georgia, where elderly black people were literally pulled over for trying to vote, and where Republican gubernatorial candidate and current secretary of state Brian Kemp purged over 300,000 people from the voter rolls. They don’t want you voting, and they don’t particularly care if it’s fair or not. And if you happen to resist, the president already tacitly endorsed violence against you.
This is because Republicans hate a true representative democracy. And if they hate that, then they hate America. And if they hate America, then they hate you. I know Republicans say they LOVE America. They love it so much they wanna marry it. But that’s not true. They only love using America, mostly as a means of engineering hate.
But they hate so many other things, too! They hate black people. They hate Muslims, and have no problem if the Proud Boys go hunting around Manhattan for women to assault. They hate Native Americans. They’re getting their sea legs back when it comes to hating Jews. They hate hate hate Mexican and Central American and Puerto Rican people, to the point where they’re playing a demented game of Oregon Trail with a group of desperate Central Americans currently situated a literal thousand fucking miles from the border, waiting for them to arrive at our doorstep just so they can persecute them. You’re a billion times more likely to die from tripping over the sidewalk than some from supposed caravan gang member. No matter. Republican hatred of immigrants is the priority. They rip immigrant children away from their parents and stick them in concentration camps and bend over backwards to make sure those families can never be put back together, all in the name of hatred.
They hate gays, too. They hate bisexuals. They hate trans people, to the point where they would rather that such people don’t even legally exist. They really hate women. If you’re a woman who’s brave enough to step forward and publicly recount a deep-seated pain you’ve been harboring for years and years, Republicans are ready to laugh right in your face.
They hate the poor. They hate victims. They hate the elderly and infirm. They REALLY hate sick people. Can you believe all these gross sick people, lying around and wasting productivity? Let’s saddle those people up with hundreds of thousands of dollars in hospital bills so that they can die penniless and afraid. Unions? Republicans hate those. People asking for a raise in the minimum wage? Yeah no, sorry. You’re on the hate wagon, too.
