The American people better heed the warning signs. The leadership of the Republican Party is making no secret of the fact that they intend to strip away any and all entitlements that exist to benefit Americans in need; this is a major part of the process by which they are waging war on the American people and this society. These arrogant, swaggering bullies and their corporate masters want to control America; that cannot be allowed to happen.

 

 

The GOP now controls the U.S. House of Representatives, the site where they conduct their war operations. In the Senate they have used the power of the filibuster to make a mockery of the responsibility of that body to enact important and meaningful legislation. Their next objective is to control both houses of Congress and the White House through the 2012 elections; and if they do, then it will trigger an all out, open war against the people.

 

If this is a war then how and where, in specific terms, is it being waged? To make that determination let's examine the agenda and strategies that the Republicans in Congress are using to achieve their objectives:

 

War Against Senior Americans

By now all Americans must be fully aware that the GOP is bent on drastically reducing or even eliminating Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, programs that have greatly benefited millions of Americans for many years. If they take control and have the power, they will see that any and all services of this kind will be shifted to and administered by the pirate health care corporations and the Wall Street manipulators. They care not for the welfare of the people, only the interests of their corporate masters.

 

They also have designs to repeal the health care reform legislation known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), signed into law by President Obama in March, 2010. They have no interest whatsoever in assuring that all Americans have adequate health care coverage; if millions die too early in life because they have no insurance, or if they go bankrupt when they can't pay the monumental costs of critical care, that's not of their concern.

 

War Against Women

It's no secret that Republicans would, if they could, reverse the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade which kept in force certain abortion rights. If they take over the Congress and the White House they, in concert with the Republican leaning Supreme Court, will waste no time in totally eliminating abortion rights.
