ALEC, The Tea Party, And Their Dangerous Plan To Privatize Our Government

What I am going to say will probably come as little surprise to many of you, but it’s a concept still lost on many folks. As you know, one of the biggest talking points from the Republican Party and many libertarian groups is that many functions of government would be better handled by the private sector. Whether it is pension funds, highways or anything else, you’ll hear it repeated ad nauseam that government is wasteful and that the private sector can do it better.

There’s a couple of problems with this, especially when they say that government should be run like a business. First off, let’s address the “run the government like a business” talking point. While it does sound like a great idea, there’s a serious problem and false comparison there. Businesses have a main goal of making money for their owners and shareholders. In other words, profit first and the customer somewhere after that.

Yet, it seems that the privatization of every possible function of government, including education, is what front groups like ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council), FreedomWorks and others are pushing for – often while operating under a non-profit status and/or pretending to be a “grassroots organization.”

If you thought government was cold and uncaring now, can you imagine what it would be like if it was run by CEOs?

The problem with government is that it is run by human beings, and human beings are flawed and they’re also prone to corruption when there’s money, sex or power involved. If you think it’s bad now, do you think it would really be any better with profit-hungry corporations and their shareholders running the day to day operations like the DMV, Social Security or paving the roads? Imagine being routed to an outsourced call center in India or Manila for help with child support or other functions currently handled by someone in your city or state? Because I can almost guarantee you that would be the case if these responsibilities were handed over to the private sector. Not only would these corporations have control over functions our government currently handles, but our tax dollars would be going to them, which would then in turn be used for even more influence on political campaigns. Do you really think that’s a good future for our country? Because I sure as hell do not. So, do you want to stop ALEC,
FreedomWorks, the Koch Brothers, the Tea Party and their destructive, selfish corporate agenda? There’s only one way to do that, and that’s to vote this fall and make sure to get others to the polls as well. Here’s what is at stake in the midterm election in November:

Remember, they’re counting on your apathy and for you to believe that your vote doesn’t count. If we vote, we win. It’s as simple as that.

Only Republicans Could Be Proud of Inflicting Brutality On Innocent Hispanic Children

Compassion is an emotion that some human beings feel in response to the suffering of others that motivates a deep-seated desire to help relieve that suffering. Even though compassion is regarded as having an emotional aspect, it is also based on cerebral notions among decent human beings such as fairness, justice and interdependence, so it should be considered rational in nature and its application understood as an activity based on sound judgment simply because all humanity is interdependent on each other. In America, there is a relatively large segment of the population that is so vacant of compassion, instead of a humanitarian desire to relieve the suffering of others, they actively seek out new and barbaric means to increase misery; these are Republicans and their barbaric base.

George W. Bush took a few years to destroy America’s reputation around the world, and despite President Barack Obama’s herculean effort to repair the nation’s standing, Republicans, teabaggers, and a large segment of the population have all but cemented America’s character as inhumane and cruel; to its own people and now child refugees. Not only do Republicans and their base lack any compassion or desire to relieve the suffering of others, they are now actively, and with malice aforethought, on a crusade to increase suffering for sport and brand America as compassionless, hate-filled, and cruel. After the Republican actions this week, it is difficult to imagine anyone in this nation being proud to be an American; unless they consider abject brutality toward innocent children something to be proud of.

The irony is that no one could care LESS about the average Teabaggers toxic brew of racism.paranoia,resentment and ignorance (all of which is what qualifies as the Right's 'social agenda') then the very plutocrats and their propagandists that spoon feed them their opinions such as the Koch's and FOX and the rest.
To them they are simply rubes and fools.
Useful idiots.
Easy to incite.
Easy to manipulate by telling them any bullsh*t they want to hear.
Bodies in enough numbers to get to the polls to send more Republican Corporate bootlickers to Capital Hill to make sure they get their way.
Which amounts to nothing more then :Corporate Operations un-regulated,Corporate decisions un-questioned,and Corporate Profits un-taxed.
Period.

Stupid liberals..

1) Deficit. WRONG! Here's the link to the proof.

http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/federal_d...

2) Jobs numbers are easily manipulated... The unemployment rate ain't.. When you factor in the nearly 10 million that have left the workforce that number goes up significantly. Nearly doubling

http://www.multpl.com/unemployment/table

3) Unemployment claims... Good one. Reagan had 82 months of job growth with 10 million people NOT leaving the workforce. Bush had 52 months of job growth while dealing with 2 recessions, 2 wars that could have been avoided if Clinton had done his job... And, the worst financial crisis I ever lived through caused by Bill Clinton's policies.

4) Stock market LOL... That has NOTHING to do with the Obama policies... The fed has been pumping billions into Wall street for over 2 years now.
