Charges of Moral Decadence: The People of America v. The Republican Party

By       (Page 1 of 3 pages)   2 comments

A most important trial, actually it could be termed critical, is scheduled to begin November 6, 2012, the date of the presidential and congressional elections. This 2012 election will become the setting for this case: The people of America v. the Republican Party. Who wins this critical case will determine the future direction of this nation for decades to come.


This court case is not a typical judicial proceeding; it is, rather, most unique in that the American people are not only the plaintiff, but they are also the judge and jury. So the chances of the Republicans being able to refute the charges that will be brought against them are slim at best, and it is almost a given that they will be found guilty.


Oh, I almost forgot. The American people will also be the prosecutor. President Obama was originally scheduled to be the prosecutor but, based on more than two years of documented evidence of his passive and compromising actions involving the GOP, the people determined that it was in their best interest to remove him and prosecute the case themselves. And so, they will be the prosecutor, the judge, and the jury.


There are attorneys for the defense, very formidable ones I must say, that have a very long and close relationship with the Republican Party and its congressional representatives. Representing the defense will be Corporate America and the wealthiest Americans. Therefore, the strategy and arguments in defense of the Republicans will be clearly recognizable as very familiar and very dangerous.


In this case, the defendants are not charged with breaking any civil or criminal laws of the nation but, rather, with the willful and deliberate violation of the basic principles of morality; principles that have been present in this society for many years. Rarely in our government's history have there been more egregious examples of moral              than those committed by these defendants over this past decade. That is why this case has to be pursued with the full power and vigor of the people.


Now to the specific charge against the defendants. They are charged with the intent to do great harm to their fellow citizens by stripping them of some of the most important entitlement programs that have ever been created by our government. Specific charges include the intent to privatize Social Security, the safety net for retired Americans; also their plan to completely dismantle Medicare, the very successful medical insurance program for those same retired Americans.


These Republicans also have plans, if they somehow gain total control of Congress, to strip away any and all rules and regulations that have been designed to prevent contamination of the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat; all designed to do away with the restrictions on the many corporations who would then gain even more obscene profits.
