No public education or transportation!
Who needs firefighters or police, or disaster relief?
The subprime crash crushed the middle class.
But please, no more regulation or conservation!
Despite crowded roads and huge SUVs and the BP disaster and oil dependence. Despite medical fraud and Internet crimes and business scams and pedophiles. And rapists and murders and terrorists and thieves. And unsafe drugs and dangerous thugs. And toxins and diseases and pollution and sneezes. And suicidal vets and crushing debt.
We don't need taxation
or regulation or conservation!
No FBI or CIA, no SEC or FCC, no FDA or EPA, no CDC or FAA, no DA or VA!
To hell with Social Security and Head Start and Medicare!
We don't need FEMA for the next Katrina. Or the NIH or the NSF.
Tough luck for the sick and the elderly and the poor and the weak. Somalia is the kinda place where we want to be!
All we need is less government and low taxes for the rich.
And that, in its entirety, is the Republican policy -- unless gay marriage and masturbation are your kinda preoccupation.
*I-1098 is the Washington State 2010 ballot initiative that, if approved, would lower taxes for the middle class and establish an income tax on the wealthiest 1.2% of Washingtonians.
And do you complain about government corruption and waste? Never was there as much corruption and waste as when Republicans controlled Congress and the White House. Conservatives want government to fail and to serve the interests of their rich buddies.
