The Joke Of Republican Fiscal Conservatism

It seems like forever that Republicans have been beating Democrats over the head as the party of tax and spend. Of course what GOP members have failed to say was that most of the spending was to improve the living conditions of average Americans.

You see, the basic way any modern nation functions is that those with the most bucks pay the largest part of supporting the nation’s physical and human infrastructure, like teacher and firemen and hundreds of other critical services that keep a nation strong.

But for years now, instead of requiring those most able to pay for the nation’s needs, Republican have been offering the fat cats a way to duck their responsibility through political donations. So now that the Republicans have finally gotten full control of the federal government they have given away the store in tax cuts to their most wealthy donors, and the nation has nothing to show for it other than red ink from here to eternity. So must for the myth of Republican fiscal conservatism.

Meaning that you are going to see a lot of striking by public workers because Republicans have throw away the source of their wages in tax cuts in order to maintain power merely for the sake of power. In other words the GOP has forgotten that the whole purpose of a liberal democracy is to do the most good for the most people, and to protect the average Jill and Joe from the rich and powerful — not to act as their shills.
