The Republican Con Job
What is the purpose of the Republican Con Job?
Key purposes of Republican, to be exact the right-wing Media/Cabal behind them, Con Job are:
1- To give American (middle class) people as little as possible for the Taxes that we pay,
2- To have the Rich not pay their fair share of Taxes. Such as someone like Romney paying 15% Taxes while a typical Middle class pays much higher Taxes. Or have FICA Taxes capped at $110K per year of income! etc.
3- To enable the Wall Street Gang and their Agents to get as rich as they can off the back of American middle class by not having the Government (of the People by the People for the People) regulate what Big corporations can do and charge, such as have Universal nationalized health care, as they have in ALL Europeans countries, in fact in all developed nations, etc. as a result of which health care would cost the American people (Nation) half of what it costs now while ALL Americans having health care for the Medicare Taxes that we (already) pay.
So in super summary the KEY purpose of the Republican Con Job, as agents of Wall Street gang, is to ensure that that 1% that controls most of the wealth in US, controls the US Government, which means controls the American people and their Taxes and not the American people. And to get away with this Con Job they will say any lunatics lies and non-sense as listed and described here.
How Republicans (aka right-wing Media) get away with this Con Job?
So to carry out the above effective Multi-Trillion theft, Republicans cannot say "Hey American people we want you to pay as much Taxes as possible while giving you as little as possible for these Taxes", or "Hey American people we want to make sure you do not control your Government so that your Government can then regulate what we want to do you". No of course they cannot say what their real objectives are, so they have come up with one lunatic lie and non-sense after another to achieve their real objectives. Because the only way that they can year after year get you willingly to hand over Trillions of Dollars to this 1% that controls the US Media and thus Government is to Con you to willingly or blindly to go along with this Multi Trillion Con Job.
So how they get away with this Ultimate Con Job is via selling you the following amazing non-sense & lies:
1- Government is the problem and not the solution - (Reagan era)
2- Government has too much Debt and too high a Deficit - (Today)
3- The Fed
4- Fear mongering & War mongering
The ultimate purpose of which lies, non-sense and deception is the above 3 key objectives of the Republican Con Job.
Ultimate Con Job 1: "Government is the problem and not the solution"
One of the reasons why US economy is doing so badly for avg American, while 1% at the top gets richer and richer, is the KEY Con Job of Republican party that was first uttered by Reagan, that is: "Government is the problem and not the solution"
For if the "Government is the problem and not the solution", then who is? Wall Street and Big corporations!
Because the only way that peoples voices can be heard and wishes carried out is via their Vote, which means via their Government. So if you come and say that: "Government is the problem and not the solution", this means you are saying that People's Votes and the Democracy by which people elect their Government, are all the problem rather than a solution because the ONLY result of People's Voting is their Government.
So the net effect of this insidious Con Job would be that the 1% that controls most of the wealth, will control your lives, your Taxes, and NOT your Vote which means not your Government, which is EXACTLY what the purpose of this Con Job as all Republican cons are.
Ultimate Con Job 2: "Debt, Deficits, We are broke, Our grand children will have to pay this Debt..."
After more and more American people realized, finally, that it is a total Con Job to say that:
"Government is the problem not the solution..." given that for example the moment that the Wall Street gang (aka Republican masters) needed help in 2008 they instantly turned to the Government for the $750-Bill Tax payer provided TARP, or that the US Military is a 100% Government run Socialized service, as are other Republicans favorite organizations such as Fire dept, Police, CIA, NSA, etc. or simply as per the FACT that in countries were Government is considered to be a "Key part of the solution", which means they operate more of
the economy on Socialized basis, such as Germany, China, etc. their economies are doing much better than US, from having much lower Unemployment to much lower or NO Deficits, Then Republicans and the right-wing Cabal behind them started this new Con Job that:
"Deficits Deficits Deficits"
"Our children and grand children will have to pay this debt"
"When you are in a Hole stop digging"
Because the Debts & Deficits in US are 99% due to the ideals of Republicans and the right-wing Cabal behind them. After all below are summary of steps that would replace the current HUGE Deficits in USA with HUGE Surpluses, and Republicans oppose ALL of these Steps, repeat Republicans oppose the steps which would replace the HUGE Deficits in US with HUGE Surpluses. And to instantly see this, just look at China that is already taking them and has HUGE Surpluses.
1- Tax the Rich and Big corporations more. And as an astonishing display of this consider the FACT that someone making $10-Mill per year will pay Medicare and Social security Taxes on the 1st 1% of their income, while someone making less than $105K per year will pay same Tax on 100% of their income!
2- Do not engage in unnecessary Wars 10,000K from your border - ZERO Wars China engaged in vs 2 Wars for US at the cost of $3-Trillions to date,
3- Do not have a Gargantuan Military budget - ZERO Chinese Military bases outside China vs US bases in an astonishing 120+ countries,
4- Have Universal Nationalized health care (aka NHS) - for in countries that have NHS, which is ALL European countries, in fact ALL Developed nations, health care is taking about 9% of GDP, whereas in US with no NHS, health care is taking a DEFICIT BUSTING 18% of GDP.
In fact another budget was introduced by the Congressional Progressive Caucus called People's Budget, here:
which budget would lead to a Surplus in few years. Repeat the Progressive Caucus's People Budget would lead to an actual Surplus in few years vs the budget's proposed by Ryan (or Obama) which would NOT even lead to a surplus in 20+ years. And which budget rather than giving less Social services to American people would give them More Social services, still a lot less than in other developed nations but more than now by having for example the Public option which is a tiny step toward NHS.
And most of the US Media barely covered this People's Budget proposal and instead engaged in their usual Scam that "Doom and gloom - entitlements - Deficits Deficits Deficits - Our grand children will have to pay these Debts", etc. non-sense... and covered the Ryan budget proposal exhaustively under the TOTAL LIE that they care about the Deficits when the Deficits in the US are 99% caused by the ideas, by the LIES, of the Republican, Republic-rats and the Wall Street gang behind them.
So the Debts and Deficits in USA are 99% due to the ideals of Republicans and the right-wing Cabal behind them, as well as Democrats which once in the office pretty much did exactly as the Republicans before them such as been the case with Obama Admin that has done 99% of what Bush Admin did. And Republicans and the right-wing Media behind them are such a Con artists, such lying machine, that all of a sudden, as of Obama Admin election, became Deficit & Debt doom and gloom purveyors when again the huge Deficit & Debt in US are 99% due to Republican and right-wingers ideals.
Further Absolute proof of the Republican party Con Job
So the absolute proof that Republican party is engaged in an Ultimate Con Job on American people and that most of US Media (aka right-wing Media) is on this Con Job is their recent (Apocalyptic) worry about Debts & Deficits while they oppose Universal Single Payer Health Care (aka NHS), the type of health care that the Conservative parties in UK, Canada, Israel, etc. 100% Support.
Because of these 2 FACTS:
1, NHS would cut health care costs, and thus reduce the Debts & Deficits of US Government and American people, by $1-Trillion per year, given the FACT that in countries that that have NHS, which is ALL European countries, Canada, etc., health care on avg is taking 9% of GDP while in US with for profit Wall Street run health care, health care is taking a DEFICIT busting 18% of GDP.
2, NHS would give health care to ALL Americans for the Medicare Taxes that we (ALREADY) pay.
So the above FACTS are the absolute damning proof of the Con Job that the Republican party and US right-wing Media (aka Wall Street owned media, which is 98% of US Media) have been playing on American people.
Most Democrats are on this Con Job
Now as bad as the above facts are, which prove that Republican party is engaged in an Ultimate Con Job on American people what is equally bad is that many Democrats are near copy of the Republicans. They of course are better than Republicans in so far as they don't run around and state the key points of the Republican Con Job, such as:
"Government is the problem and not the solution"
but in practice they have done nearly the same as Republicans once in power. Given the fact that for example Democrats (Obama) did not even propose set aside pass Universal Single Payer Health Care (aka NHS), something that again the Conservative parties in Europe, Canada, etc. 100% support. Or they did not end the Afghan War, Iraq War, or cut the US Military budget to be in line with the Reagan era! etc. More on this here
So if we want to end the Republican Con Job, we need to 1st realize what it is and what its goals are since the people behind it are armed with 100s of Billions of Dollars and control most of the US Media so in a heart beat they will create a fake party, aka TEA party, or will co-opt any new party or will call the Obama Admin that has done 99% of what Bush Admin was doing to be "Socialist" when again as noted Obama Admin has been to the far right of the Conservative parties in Europe, Canada, etc.
In summary: the goal of the Republican Con Job
So in summary the goal of the Republican Con Job is to take the power away from the People and concentrate it in the hand of 1%, aka Wall Street gang and Big corporation aka Super Rich, that controls most of the US Media. And the Key to this Ultimate Con Job is to get the American people to be sheep and not wake up to their Con Job and thus act against their own self interest, which is to buy into this Con Job that their Government, which means their Votes, their democracy, is "the problem and not the solution" and thus effectively give
all power to the Wall Street and Big corporations whom have access to 100s of Billions of Dollars.
Because they know that if the American people start realizing that their Government, which means their Vote, their democracy, is the solution,
is in fact much more powerful than the Wall Street gang and Big corporations IF in fact American people realize that it is the MOST POWERFUL SOLUTION in contrast to the insane Con Job of the Republican party 1st spewed by Ronald Reagan that:
"Government is the problem and not the solution",
that the "Game is Over" for them in so far of this 1% Wall Street gang and Big corporations controlling the Government, and thus getting richer and richer off the back of American people.
(1) Health care costs 50% less in countries with Universal Single payer ( aka Socialized) health care:
(2) Conservative parties in Europe, Canada, etc. are 100% for their Universal Nationalized health care:
(3) Real US Military budget is $1.2-Trillion and NOT even the Gargantuan reported level of $700-Bill:
(4) Another great example of Republican Con Job: Rich pay less % of Taxes than their Secretary
