The Republican’s have been working to dominate American politics since the last days of Ronald Reagan. In the 1980’s was the Contract with America. Upon losing the White House to the Democrats in the Clinton years, A Take Back Power mentality dominated all thinking. When they couldn’t get to the White House through the vote, they decided to go after the man himself. They succeeded.
Let’s get this right. At that point, with the election and re-election of Bush/Cheney, Americans were fleeced, passed over, taken for a ride and turned out the front door by the Majority.
Before 9/11 George Bush spent lots of time in Texas, looking all Reaganesque. Afterward, with his Declaration of War in hand, and the Republican led Congress, opened up the Treasury of the United States to their friends, lied to the Congress and the American People. They deregulated our financial institutions and more friends took the money of hard working Americans, leaving us with a greater Divide between the wealthy and the poor, ultimately squeezing the middle class.
Let me ask you one question: Since January 20th, 2000 are you better off?
