WHEN YOU SEE THE GOP PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES FOR 2016, THEN YOU’LL UNDERSTAND THE TROUBLE THE GOP IS IN!

Rand Paul Top Pick for Republicans in 2016

.

Knowing the Republican presidential candidates vying for the 2016 Republican nomination should tell you all you need to know about the pitiful state the GOP finds itself in today.
.
Paul Ryan – Mr. “Gut” Medicare and turn it into a voucher free-for-all.  Last man standing, wins!  Or his budget which makes even further cuts into social programs than the sequester is doing right now.
.
Rand Paul – Get rid of everything and put it all into “private” hands.  Society can be run by individuals running “individually”.  Any pooling of resources (i.e., government) is a waste of time and impinges on the individual.  Enough said.
.
Ted Cruz – Mr. “I’m just crazy and I am a total Tea Bagger.  Social Security and Medicare will wither away under my watch.  And virtually everything else as well.
.
Marco Rubio.  Mr. “First I was for immigration, then I was against it, then I was for it, then ….” This path to citizenship should be stretch to – oh, maybe – 33-years and not the 13-years as currently contemplated in the legislation before us.  Never mind that by fucking up on immigration he’s consigning the GOP to virtually permanent minority status – or worse – extinction.  66% of latino voters identify the GOP as hostile to latinos.   But, hell, I’m so damn good looking I’ll just run on my looks and keep on saying stuff like the earth is still flat.
.
Scott Walker.  Mr. “I’ll break the unions (no collective bargaining rights for state workers, police and fire fighters, health care workers) and I’ll continue to pass legislation at 3:00-a.m. in the Wisconsin State House.”   And of course, mandatory sonograms for any pregnant woman even thinking of having an abortion.
.
Let’s just throw in Alan West for good measure.  We can go back to the gold old days of Joseph McCarthy’s political witch hunts.  This time, however, we can identify Al Qaeda sympathizers in high places and all areas of government.  I’m just the dickwad to root out the terrorists in the Obama Administration.  We definitely need laws outlawing Sharia law and maximally enforced and I’ll be the anti-Sharia Czar.
.
Well, I guess we’ll also have to include Michigan governor Rick Snyder.  (Mr. “Let’s force Detroit into bankruptcy and then strip the pensions of municipal workers which have already been FULLY vested!”).  Rick’s also “Mr. let’s take over city governments in general (like Flint) and strip them of their legally elected representatives and put in place a state trustee instead.  So much for democracy or local government.
.
And last, but not least – Governor John Kasich of Ohio (my home state – Go Bucks!).  Mr. “Let’s attach an extremely restrictive abortion bill within the overall state budget and then vote on that omnibus bill on a Sunday afternoon and then I sneak out of the State Capitol through the back door to an unmarked car!”
.
If you doubt my “slant” on the GOP as a national party in dire straits – please read this week’s column on the GOP by Joan Walsh in http://www.salon.com.  (The vanishing GOP voter   —    http://www.salon.com/2013/07/24/the_vanishing_gop_voter)  I think she’ll more than prove my point here.
.
Your assignment is to read Ms. Walsh’s column and take it to heart.  2014 – it’ll come fast and we need to RETAKE the House of Representatives, for God’s sake!
