When people ask me how do I see myself as a Republican, because I do not assimilate to the “EXTREME ASPECTS” of the “Johnny Come Lately” that has infested MY Republican Party; I point to the legacy examples of Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, Nelson Rockefeller, etc. and say this is what the proud Republican Party once was and stood for. The ignorance of the “Extreme Aspects” within the Party today’s simple minded reply usually is, “Well they were really just Liberals and not true Republicans!!” (What a group of Hatefull Dumb Asses.)
This was the Republican Party before the “Drug Induced Hate Visions of Rush Limbaugh” that became so prevalent, the “Non-Critical Thinking” easily lead population, the “Mindless Religious Fanatics,” and even the ignorance of the “Racially Motivated Tea Party” having the nerve to refer to themselves as “Patriots,” funded by the last remnants of the Racist John Birch Society. (I would also like to pass on that in the 1960’s members of the John Birch Society referred to themselves as “Minute Men.” You can see, the Tea Party Members are not even original with that identification aspect.)
Today the Republican Party is finding itself funded, and thus for representing the sole entity, by the Corporate Interests that would have the Middle Class divested and devastated back to the economically enslavement of the “Company Town Coal Mines” mentality that was so prevalent in the Coal Regions of this country in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s before the Unions forced the representation of the Worker’s Rights.
Today the Koch Brothers have funded so many political aspects that Governors of States like Wisconsin and Ohio are mandating that Unions be disbanded leaving no voice within those States. (The Koch Brother’s Father started the John Burch Society so there by the “Me Too” aspects of the Tea Party we see today)
Below I give you one of the better Republican Party’s Presidents, Dwight David Eisenhower’s own words and warnings to the more sane members of the Republican Party:
To repeat my own words, Extremism is short lived and will have no longevity. The question is, “How much damage can be done to the United State’s Middle Class Population in the mean time?”
