In today's NY Times opinion page, Jonathan Martin tried to explain the dilemma that Jeb Bush and Mike Huckabee face in trying to pacify the conservative and ideological wings of the GOP. He claims that Huckabee is trying to dictate how people should live their lives and be "good" based on some doctrine of morality as dictated by his fraudulent religion, etc. While exploring how Jeb Bush, the man who was instrumental in orchestrating the fraudulent election of his idiot brother to the presidency, is somehow a viable alternative for younger GOP pols to move the party forward.
He claims that they are in a battle to garner support from the "small government" wingnuts and compassionate conservatives. What a joke! Neither of these candidates are representative of what America needs or wants and the wingnuts and compassionate conservatives are nothing more than self-serving buffoons who posit a bogus economic theory of less taxes, less government, and less regulation means prosperity for all. Really, look at Kansas which is governing by one of the most ignorant men in America's history, Sam Brownback.
What Bush and Huckabee represent is a party which is caters to racists, white supremacists, and greedy corporate interests, They represent a party that has hoodwinked Americans for decades and its survival has relied on the stupidity of the middle-class, blue-collar, and rural voters to win elections while catering exclusively to special interests. This was publicly evident when Sheldon Adelson showed up for the swearing in of the new Congress. I guess he had to let the new GOP majority know who they worked for. There is no ideological struggle in the GOP. The struggle is between which fraudulent candidate can garner enough money and support from the largest number of greedy corporations, racists, and "dumber than dogshit" voters to win the nomination. The idea that these buffoons represent some high-minded conservative values, etc is laughable.
Comments to think about.
