July 4, 2016 By Jack Jodell (in association with the masterful BURR DEMING, creator of and chief author over at the brilliant blog FAIR AND UNBALANCED.COM – see my Blogroll in the lower right hand column).
Happy Independence Day to all of our American readers! We have been witnessing the gradual decline of the Republican Party over the last few decades. Yes, you may say in disbelief, “but don’t they have control of both houses of Congress?”, but the true fact is that they achieved this control through the use of fear and trickery, using low-information voters to flock to the polls in midterm elections, and promptly solidifying their victory with the help of extreme gerrymandering. This has helped them to claim, with no basis in fact whatsoever, that they are the “majority” party. With powerful allies like Fox “News” and conservative talk radio, they have deluded themselves and a certain segment of the public into believing that this is so, even though the exact opposite is the case. Remember, my friends: it is easy to “win” when you lie and cheat. Regrettably, that is just what they have been up to for many years. After all, how can ANY so-called “majority” party only represent the wants and needs of the very few, namely big business corporatists, extremist religious-right types, members of the military/industrial complex, reactionary crackpots, anti-democracy authoritarians, and racists?
In today’s offering, our podcaster extraordinaire BURR DEMING gives us an indisputable analysis of exactly why we are starting to see the death throes of this current Tea Party-infested, reactionary Republican Party. In my estimation, their demise is long overdue.
Burr tells us : “The Republican Party plays Ophelia in Shakespeare’s Hamlet: drowning ‘as one incapable of her own distress.’
The Party is in a death spiral.
Like a moth, it circles the flame, helpless, unable to stop itself.”
