Republican strategy for taking power: buy massive campaign contributions from the rich and Big Business with equally massive tax-cuts, buy votes with illusory tax-cuts for the Middle Class.
As South Carolinian Edward Rutledge, a member of the Continental Congress, put it two-hundred and forty years ago: “Most men with nothing would rather protect the POSSIBILITY of being rich than face the reality of being poor.”
And the Right has exploited that insipid and dangerous delusion ever since.
Something the right never seems to understand is that the thing that has brought us to this precipice… is the OUTRAGEOUS disparity between rich and poor. It has destabilized the economy and the country.
