Toss the GOP Out On It's ..........
And when we have done that, start kicking the Democrats out.
I only give the GOP priority at this point in our political history, as they have done more harm recently than the Democrats.
And I am not talking about this current Presidential election. This recent campaign just points up how dysfunctional the whole system has become. If we want to re-claim any semblance of the democratic process, we need to rid ourselves of the two party system as it currently stands. These two parties have colluded over the years and rigged the division of power so that only they wield the big sticks. And behind the scenes the same uber elite class pulls the strings for both.
So I propose we kick out every Republican holding any elected office of any kind. Particularly the elected officials in legislatures at the state and national level. Do not let them get away with the excuse that it was not they who did this or that, it was their predecessor, or the opposing side or lay the blame on a bureaucracy the system they are part of put in positions of power. Make them responsible for the stupidity their party has practiced over the last two decades. Hell, if I had my way, I'd make them pay for pushing Ronnie into our lives in 1980.
What we have in this country is not the Right / Left ideological struggle the two parties have created. It is really a Class War based on economic standing. Ideology matters little to the leadership of either party when it comes to serving the whims of their rich benefactors who are very comfortable and cozy living their lives in the shadows.
This cozy arrangement is nothing new. The influence of the rich has been part of political history forever. A country can handle a certain amount of it, but there is a tipping point. We are approaching that tipping point. Often, when the rich get out of hand or try to control too much, the resulting kick back is not just change, but catastrophic failure and downfall of the existing social and political system. History is chock full of examples.
