Republicans Won, You Lost
First off, my first post (and subsequent series of posts) after a long hiatus was going to be about my road trip across the country. But tonight's election has led me to write/rant about something else.

Second, thank you California, New York, Delaware, Nevada, Connecticut and (oddly enough) West Virginia. You have rightfully rejected the filthy rich, the bigoted, the Wiccan, the racist, the wrestler's filthy rich wife and the Tea Party.

And to the rest of the country, namely Kentucky, Ohio, Florida, South Carolina, Arizona and pretty much the entire sub-literate middle and southern portions of the country...

Are you fracking stupid?

I'm sorry, let me rephrase. Are you fracking willfully ignorant, stupid assholes?

The answer must be yes. Because if you would get your heads out of your Fox News inhaling, Rush Limbaugh touting, Sarah Palin suckling asses, you would know that every vote you cast for the GOP is a vote AGAINST your interests. AGAINST your middle-class, workin' man, Joe the Plumber daily needs. You think the Sarah Palin party of Tea Baggers represents you, the "middle of the road" folks? Does a middle of the road kinda guy make 14 million dollars for speaking in Iowa, like Sarah Palin did? Does a Joe the Plumber think that corporations and millionaires deserve tax cuts, at the price of the middle to lower class, like soon to be Speaker Boehner does?

Those of you voting for Republicans, and against "elitist" liberals, because you think they'll look out for your interests, are going to find out they voted in Republicorp, a hellish amalgamation of Republicans and corporations. On what backwards planet do you believe that the multimillionaires who rule the GOP are at all interested in you? Who's actually the elitist party here? The party of CEOs and corporations, or the party of progressives who are providing for middle-class America, and taking away from 6 and 7 figure America.

Do you really think that the Bush tax cuts were a good thing just because you got a single $300 check in the mail? News Flash: Under Obama, each and every one of you received a substantial tax cut. Only, it didn't come in the form of a check, as a way to say "Hey middle America, the Republicans care about you!" It came in the form of decreased taxes being taken out of every single paycheck you receive. Just because you don't comprehend simple arithmetic, doesn't mean it doesn't work in your favor. It's not shocking that you have more NFL statistics in your repertoire than you do information about real issues that affect your future.

Did you know that the four filthiest, richest (and Republican) candidates running for governor and senate (Meg Whitman, Carly Fiorina, Rick Scott and Linda MacMahon) collectively spent over a QUARTER OF A BILLION DOLLARS on their respective campaigns. And they all (except for Rick Scott which at this point is too close to call) LOST! That's over A QUARTER OF A BILLION DOLLARS for NOTHING. That's A QUARTER OF A BILLION DOLLARS that could have gone towards education or healthcare.

Speaking of socialist policies, it's likely that the Orange Speaker of the House Boehner is going to shove through those aforementioned tax cuts (which are again AGAINST your economic interests) and will also work to repeal healthcare. With the new majority, these will pass without fail, barring the President's likely veto. Is that working for your interests, by stifling the functionality of Washington? I guess you got your wish for small government.

For those of you morons who said, "Keep your government hands of my medicare," did you know that the healthcare bill cut prescription drug costs by 50% for medicare recipients? Or that kids can't be rejected for pre-existing conditions anymore? Or that kids can stay on their parent's plan until the age of 26? Is that too socialist for you? Does that not line up with your Christian ideals? You rally against socialism, but I really don't think you know what socialist actually means.

Also, Jesus was a socialist.

Oh by the way, President Obama also provided the Department of Veterans Affairs with more than $1.4 billion to improve services to America's Veterans. He also signed the Children's Health Insurance Reauthorization Act, which provides health care to 11 million kids -- 4 million of whom were previously uninsured, provided $12.2 Billion in new funding for Individuals With Disabilities Act, signed the Christopher and Dana Reeve Paralysis Act, the first piece of comprehensive legislation aimed at improving the lives of Americans living with paralysis, signed financial reform law establishing a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to look out for the interests of everyday Americans.... and countless other vitally important things that you were too busy watching Fox News to learn about.

Republicans want to cut discretionary spending, but won't actually name anything they'll cut. They won't cut medicare, social security (both socialist policies), defense (because we need 42 billion dollar fighter jets for all those dog fights we get into), healthcare, veterans funding or education. So what's left? The only way to balance the budget by 2020, while simultaneously (a) making the Bush tax cuts permanent and (b) protecting all the programs Republicans say they won’t cut, is to completely abolish the rest of the federal government: No more national parks, no more Small Business Administration loans, no more export subsidies, no more N.I.H. No more Medicaid (one-third of its budget pays for long-term care for our parents and others with disabilities). No more child health or child nutrition programs. No more highway construction. No more homeland security. Oh, and no more Congress.

Is that the middle of the road, fight for mainstream, Sarah Palin, John Boehner Mitch McConnell
America you were looking for?

Speaking of Mitch "Yertel the Turtle" McConnell, do you know what he stated what his most important goal was in the Senate for the next two years? Was it to find jobs for the unemployed? Was it to stimulate the economy?

If you said, "Yes, the Republican leadership fights for my rights as a citizen!" then you're a Hannity watching, Glenn Beck worshiping ignoramus.

His primary goal, by his own statement, is to get Barack Obama out of office.

That's it.

Does that sound like someone who's working for the people?

So you wanted to take back the country from the socialist president?

Well the House, at least, was taken back... and away from you.

But you've got your guns and religion to stick to... so... good luck with that.
