COUNTDOWN: Hope springs eternal, now that the winter has gone and there are only 989 days left in blowhard Presi-dense Donald Chump’s misadministration…
Greetings, readers! For a very long time, both I and today’s podcast author BURR DEMING have been forecasting the death, and eventual disappearance of, today’s reactionary CON-servative Republican Party. With their ever-rightward drift into political oblivion, they have severely lost relevance to most voters, and with the emergence of a very ignorant, unpopular, inept, narcissistic, and cold-hearted Donald Chump as their de facto head of the party, this process is accelerating rapidly. It is a near certainty that the once proud and powerful GOP will go down to a massive defeat in this fall’s midterm elections and will lose their majority status mot only in Congress, but in a number of statehouses as well. They will continue their slide into the 2020 presidential elections, especially if they choose to renominate the sorry Chump to another term.
In today’s excellent analytical podcast, our master podcaster examines how cynical, racist jerks like the late Republican strategist Lee Atwater (plus a number of others since) have used fear and outright deceit to successfully win elections. Yet the times have changed, and NOT in the favor of this for-the-wealthy-only wretched party. These charlatans passed a massive tax cut not long ago which benefitted mainly the rich, and promised it would free corporations to give big raises to existing employees and even hire additionsl ones. Yet, as most leading economists, progressives, and Democrats in general all predicted, these blessings did NOT occur, and the vast majority of money saved from this cut went instead to corporate stock buybacks. This, of course, greatly increased the wealth of corporate CEOs, their Boards of Directors, and their biggest stockholders – and very little to anybody else!
Burr tells us, “The root cause of the political death spiral that afflicts the Republican Party has been blamed on Trump, Nixon, and a host of minor politicians.
We have overlooked a hidden player that has only been with us for 30 years.”
