The Republicans say they want to drown the Government in a bathtub. The only interpretation of that is Grover Norquist blood oath that almost every Republican state and federal legislator signed as their goal to destroy the American government from within.
What has been so frustrating over the last seven years has been watching these fifth columnists try to take advantage of the weak economy Obama inherited from the Bush administration, and try to push this nation and the world into a depression.
It has been a wondrous thing of "Pure Evil" to watch the Republicans mask their treason and great harm to this nation within the matrix of 400 years of hatred of Black people and contempt for the cultural differences in the human family.
Republicans did not have to produce one piece of legislation in the state houses or in the "people's house" in Congress. They only had to take advantage of this nation's hatreds of Black and poor people to justify the Republicans' existence and growth. And it has happened again with Paul Ryan's $680 billion tax cut for the rich, as blackmail to keep the government from a shutdown.
