Amen to that!!!!<quoted text>
Since you Neo-CONs took over the formerly great Republican Party, the Republican Party DESERVES to be crushed.
Until the moderate Republicans can regain control over the crazies, the Republican Party will continue to represent only the extremist right-wing fruit-loops! Fortunately, that is the way to LOSE elections! The Republican brand has been taken down off the shelves.
Solid Republicans like Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, New Jersey Gov. Christie, and US Senators like John McCain and Lindsey Graham (and even Newt Gingrich) have all warned that the party is going down the tubes with its current composition.
This foolishness started with the "Great Comforter and Messiah" Ronald Reagan (who also had more than his share of craziness.) As an example, Reagan started the "Lifeline" program to help poor rural Americans gain phone access to emergency services. Now, with cell phones, that program has exploded from its initial cost of $143 million to $2.2 BILLION.
You Neo-CONs want "welfare," but you want the HIGH-PRICED kind! In this case, you want to buy votes by giving free cellphone service to everyone, including people who live in the same apartment building as Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, who is concerned that the phone program is being provided to people too wealthy to qualify.
At least, Democrats are concerned that the Republican "give-away" welfare programs are costing the US far too much.
