The bottom line; the difference between Democrats and today’s Republican Party in name only. The issues supported by Democrats are real and involve the American people. The issues supported by GOP politicians change, depending on who is stealing your money.
For eight years fake conservatives on the right bitched about the increasing deficit as President Obama worked hard to save America’s economy which was nearly destroyed by his predecessor, another Republican failure.
Trump is adding more than one-trillion dollars each year to the deficit with personal spending and tax breaks for the one percent wealthiest in America. This proves that today’s “conservatives” are charlatans.
Mick Mulvaney remains Trump’s ‘acting’ Chief of Staff. He continues to display a low-level of intelligence. He recently admitted that Republicans don’t really care about deficits, at least as long as Trump is their illegitimate president.
The Washington Post obtained a recording of Mulvaney at the Oxford Union, sounding an awful lot like a Daily Kos blogger. “My party is very interested in deficits when there is a Democrat in the White House,” he said. “The worst thing in the whole world is deficits when Barack Obama was the president. Then Donald Trump became president, and we’re a lot less interested as a party.” Until it comes time to wield the deficit as a weapon to cut the safety net, of course.
The truth; the Republican Party; the party of Lincoln; no longer exists. The Trump Party is the party of big money; especially money for themselves. These fakes constantly violate their oaths of office by ignoring the Constitution; with the exception of the second amendment in support of the gun lobby.
The final truth; the big one. If you vote for a Republican in 2020 or in any other year, you are voting against the future of yourself and everyone you love. On every major issue supported by the majority of voters, Republicans are opposed. They have chosen to obey the demands of lobbyists who are agents for the wealthy, large corporations, and the Christian Religious Right. These fake Republicans have no right to call themselves members of the ‘Grand Old Party,’ or to claim that they are Americans.
