Voting Republican is not without its perks, my friends:
For example: If Republicans gain total control of the government (Both Houses plus The White House) I think you can be pretty well assured that if you have a good-paying union job you won’t have it long because the Right Wing have - – (In my opinion) – - more or less been union busters by nature and I am sure if they get the chance they will come after all the union jobs or try to make “Right To Work” – (Right To Work For Less and Less) the law of the land.
So the best way I think for anyone to get the opportunity to work for minimum wage without any benefits at some dead-end job is to vote Republican. Yes, vote a straight ticket and get all the perks that normally go to those who vote against their own interests. The “Job Creators” are waiting, folks!
Another example: Vote Republican and if you have already signed up for a new healthcare policy under The Affordable Health Care Act, I am pretty sure the Republicans would take it away from you and throw you back on the unaffordable free medical market if they got hold of the entire government again like in 2000 and 2004. Remember those days? Is that when thousands of Americans lost everything they had ever worked for because of the Republican Recession and the collapse of the housing bubble and off-shoring all the good jobs and all the rest of it?
Food stamps? Forget it, folks! I think they will keep working to get rid of food stamps until the very words, “Food Stamps” will only be a dim memory in the collective Mind of America.
You have a student loan? You probably won’t have it long if Republicans have anything to say about it and if you are looking for a Pell Grant or some other fiscal assistance to help with your college tuition you can kiss it all goodbye if Republicans ascend to the throne again.
Unemployment benefits under Republicans? Do not make me laugh!
Of course if you are one of the “Rich-uns” you’ll no doubt get a whole bunch of new tax breaks at the expense of the serfs who live on the socio-economic plateaus below you.
That’s good if you are one of the “Rich-uns!”
But I think I would walk softly because I believe that if Republicans ever get to the point where they can’t siphon off all the help and benefits the middle class and the poor usually get from America’s safety net programs the next thing they do will begin to cannibalize their own kind. You can see some of this going on in the current fragmenting of the GOP. They seem to be at each other like a pack of ravening wolves – - gnawing, tearing and biting at one-another in a most vicious and even savage manner sometimes with their hateful rhetoric – - a rhetoric that was once reserved exclusively for Liberals, Obama and The American Political Left.
