Forget about old school Chicago ward style politics…the corruption on display by the GOP in Tampa was off the charts. The ReTHUGliCON party was completely hijaked by the fascist neo cons, but in doing so they cut out even the hard right factions of the party. Rush Limbaugh was up in arms, Morton Blackwell was up in arms, and even tea partiers are screaming. The rules change were top down, iron fist mob style bullying…..except the mob is far more honorable and graceful about things.
So what will happen to the hundreds of thousands of supporters of Ron Paul and the Liberty Movement? I know the first thing I did in response was to change my party affiliation…..one lifelong republican gone….how many more will formally leave (line here)…and how many more will vote their conscience and refuse to support the party of lying, cheating, stealing and thuggery? Ron Paul tried to work within the party and he and hundreds of thousands who share the core beliefs were beaten up lied to, cheated and robbed. The GOP has been formally hijacked by the banker class and they will continue to do what they are programmed to do….abuse, steal from and destroy the rest of America. If you’re a middle class American and you’re thinking about voting for the banker class, you’ve really got a serious mental deficit.
And after all these weeks and weeks of talk…talk about everything..the color of Ann Romney’s dress, the fact that she convinced at least 15 people in America that Mitt was not a robot, about how the protesters were going to destroy Tampa (two arrests, God knows how many millions spent to turn Tampa into a Militarized Zone)…I cannot recall a single word about how corrupt our nation has become with the rise of the banker class, the fabrication of our elections and the fact that millions of families are still suffering in foreclosure. Speaking of suffering, good job to St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster for getting stiffed by the GOP…leaving St. Petersburg residents with hundreds of thousands of dollars in an unpaid party tab…compliments of the GOP….
But at least the fascists had a great shindig.
