"Small Government" Tea Party Republicans'

Tea Party Republicans have lowered the bar for crooked politicians to the very rock bottom. As if all the lies they have been telling about the President personally were not enough, these con artists have even found a way to attack the President’s health care law on grounds that the law makes contraceptives too accessible to women through insurance coverage. Thus far, Tea Republicans have voted 39 times plus one to repeal the health care law, an utterly futile exercise since the Supreme Court upheld the law to be constitutional and the Senate will never go along with their shenanigans relative to the health care law. It does not require much analysis to conclude that what we are dealing here with the dumb leading the dumb. These men are against abortion, but on the other hand they are also against contraception. Add to this that they voted against equal pay for equal work for women and against increasing the minimum wage, the only logical explanation, the only possible explanation must rest in their fantasy to force women back into the kitchen barefoot and pregnant.
Under their leaderless House I-am-going-to-cry any-moment-now or shout profanity Speaker, John Boehner, these Taliban hung on and defended in Court their odious Defense of Marriage Act, or the so-called DOMA, which got struck down miserably last month by the U.S. Supreme Court. Yet almost all of the states in the South have either a ban or a constitutional amendment on gay marriage and civil union for homosexuals. Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and her partner in civil liberty crimes Sheriff check-out-how-I-make-prisoners’ life-miserable, Joe Arpaio, “paper please” immigration law, too, got dismantled by Supreme Court a few months ago.

In addition, leading to the November national election, nearly every single one of their dozens of insidious voter suppression laws got thrown out by the Courts. It is critical to recognize that those laws have nothing to do with voter ID or voter fraud. The Republicans are so good at lying that they actually got decent people to swallow their lies whole. Their voter suppression strategies were documented on video, email correspondences, and audio, because they were so bold and unscrupulous in their grand theft election strategy that they were pronouncing their intention on the floor of legislative chambers all over the country, such as in the case of the Pennsylvania legislative assembly leader who took a bow under roaring applause when he assured his cronies, “Voter ID, which is going to allow governor Romney to win the State of Pennsylvania, done.” These fetal - person-hood crusaders have been on a bloody mission to not only deprive minority, the elderly, the poor, and young people, of rights to basic human necessities, they are also determined to keep them from voting in elections. At the end, it turned out that the only voter fraud was that is being perpetuated on the American electorate is being done by Republicans with the help of organized gangs, such as True the Vote, American for Prosperity, and others whose agenda is to alienate and intimidate voters away from the polls. This deceitful strategy needs to be made clear to the public. These guys are not asking voters to show an ID at the poles. They have targets. State ID, not acceptable, neither are school, work, student, or Federal picture ID, which people use every day for various transactions, including banking, travel, and other important transactions. Oh no, they demand that people jump through hoops, do triple back flips and then stick the landing before they will be allowed to vote.
U.S. House of Representatives
Speaker John Boehner
Small government conservatives i.e., Tea Republicans are like the drunken bum husband who drinks himself to oblivion, gambles the family into irreparable debts, picks fights, but every time there is a break up he lies and deceives his way back into the household. He promises that this time he really, really, is going to change. He cries, and swears up and down the aisle that things are going to be different; He got it; and he is going to do so much better; he is a new man. Only one more chance and he will prove how he can get the family back onto the road to prosperity; he is going to become the very model of what a good husband should be. If anyone else comes close to the family he calls them all names and assassinates their characters. Then the enabling wife, in this case the electorate, falls for the same scam all over again, and soon enough the drinking, fighting, and gambling degenerate gets right back to his old ways and resumes the destructive cycle all over again.
Job Growth under President Bush
& President Obama
For over thirty years now, small government conservatives have shown their true color, lying to get into office and never found a war that they did not like, or they did not think was worth fighting. If they no one wants to get into a war with them, like Sadam Hussein of Iraq, they will brazenly lie their way into creating one, even if it means dragging the country into it kicking and screaming. They run for office promising to lower the deficit, but sure enough, they never fail to grow the debt, by taking food out the mouths of children, the poor, the elderly, and the disabled to line the pocket of their rich allies. When it comes to their so-called “job creators” who barely create any jobs and take advantage of every loopholes in the law to rob employees of sick days, health and pension benefits, workplace safety, and living wages, those small government conservatives are up in front rolling the drumbeat for more ways to fatten their donor class and injure the haves not. From President Reagan to George W. Bush, those conservatives blew a giant crater into the Federal budget and increased the budget deficit by trillions of dollars. As a matter of fact, the much celebrated President Ronald Reagan, the man who supported the system of White South African Apartheid and called President and Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Nelson Mandela, a terrorist, is the father of the economic bubble that burst in 2008 just before Bush left office. President Reagan was an absolute gentleman, very smart, and he was born to become a leader. But, the Reagan economy in the 80’s was a credit cards economy, whereby Americans lived on credit with little saving, and housing prices began their artificial rise where homes went from 90,000 dollars to 250,000. To get the records straight, Reagan did not win forty-nine in his second election because he was so great; Reagan won in a landslide because his democratic opponent, Mr. nice guy, Walter Mondale was an inept candidate. Ultimately, the Reagan “voodoo economics,” George H. W. Bush’s words, caught up with the entire country with the excesses of W. Bush’s two unpaid wars and prescription drug benefits.
Nonetheless, Republicans, with a shamelessly convenience rarely seen in civilized societies, blame President Obama for all of it. How typical of the new toxic Tea Party Republicans pot to assert that when the sky fell upon Wall Street and the bottom fell out, it was because Democrats wanted to make housing ownership more accessible to lower income Americans! In fact, the deficit has shrunk by tens of billions of dollars under President Obama. But who’s counting? After all, the Republicans of today do not believe in mathematics any more than they believe in science or facts. When polls showed that their liar-pants-on-fire Mitt Romney was losing the November election, Republicans fabricated their own fake polls to show that they were winning.

The Republican Tea Party's Job-Abortion Agenda
NEW AND IMPROVED SNAKE OIL AT A DISCOUNT
Tea Party Rally
Having waited in vain for several decades for Republicans to overthrow Roe v. Wade, bring prayer back into schools, reinstate separate but equal, and chase homosexuals out of town, before the 2010 mid-term elections, the Evangelical Christians rose and meshed with racists, and other radical groups, and disguised themselves in sheep’s clothing to re brand as a grassroots “tea party” movement. As is their tradition of deceit, the newly mixed Tea Republican party concealed their real agenda under the guise of budget deficit, even though deficit-spending had been their economic
model since the Reagan Era. In 2010, they run on their spite for the Photo - Changingworld.com
Affordable Health Care Act, which they dubbed, "Obamacare," when what Google Image - Share
they really despised was President Obama himself. Clearly, Republicans
coined the word “Obamacare,” as if adding the name of the President to anything automatically renders such a thing evil or dangerous. They continued to lie about the law and told the country scary fiction stories about, which would be too wild to sell in Hollywood.
After they took over the House of Representatives in the mid-term elections of 2010, they switched to “jobs, jobs, jobs,” and the gospel of presidential election, after which they promptly dropped all talks of
“jobs, jobs, jobs,” and adopted ‘’cut, cut, cut.” They did manage to ha
Zmibio.com - Google Image the U.S. House of Representatives through gerrymandering, and who
thetexandaily.com knows, perhaps with a combination of voter suppression and the
outright theft of votes. Soon thereafter, they began passing one abortion bill after another, over 100 around the country and more than 30 in the House, and that is when they took a break from the 39 times they have voted to repeal the Affordable Health Care Law. Last week, the Texas legislature passed an extraordinarily restrictive law that will make it illegal for a woman to receive an abortion after 20 weeks, and may shut down all but five of the 42 abortion clinics in the state. The impact of this law will be felt by women and families far outside of Texas. And somehow, these “jobs, jobs, jobs,” cult of job-creators cohorts have done everything in their power to undermine this President’s effort to create jobs, going so far as to threaten to crash the recovering economy if they do not get the only way they know, which tax cuts for the rich and deregulation of big business. Their obstructionism and their eagerness to undermine the country’s national interests border on treason.
House Speaker John Boehner
There is no mystery in Republicans’ obsession with abortion and other issues affecting women’s health and standing in society. The party is made of backwards individuals who seem to have attended the school as the Afghan Taliban. They do want a small government alright, so long as they can turn around and hire enough cops to investigate matters of the womb and the uterus, and police bedrooms, bathrooms, and doctors’ offices to make sure
Google Images [Share] that women are following the laws that Tea Republicans passed based on their theses right out of Oral Robert and Pat Robinson universities. Somehow, it makes a deranged kind of sense, but if you are going to run a crusade you do need to move your troops to the frontier to engage in an effective assault. That being said, it carries a sick kind of logic that Republicans would be trying so hard to dismantle programs that maintain the integrity of the government contract with the people to secure the well-being of the elderly, veterans, children, and others that need the government to support them in their pursuit of life. After cutting health care services for women, education, child care, meals on wheel, head start, and veteran benefits, as they have started under the on-going sequestration, the Republicans can then focus on using the resources that are left to oppress women, homosexuals, minorities, immigrants, and students. This has been their agenda all along, and they have succeeded in selling and re-selling the same dilapidated bridge to the people in every election.
Between passing hundreds of abortion bills, voter suppression bills, placing bans on gay marriage around the country, and cutting programs for the most vulnerable among us, Republicans are busy trying to dismantle the fabric of society from the bottom up. But, not to worry, they will stop their demolition derby once they reach the top one or two percent on the economic ladder. Governor ultrasound of Virginia, Bob McDonnell (currently embroiled in corruption scandal and facing possible Grand Jury indictment, and other want-a-be known as such, Pat McCrory of in North Carolina, John Kasick of Ohio, Phil Bryant of Mississippi, Scott Walker of Wisconsin, and everywhere else in the South where Tea Republicans have metastasized at the peril of their self-destructive voting population will continue to march on with their ultra -fundamentalist policy prescriptions. These men are so hideous in their thinking and approach towards women that they literally compete among themselves for the titles of most outrageous, and the dishonor to be the first to propose laws to ban contraceptives, or at the very least to make it harder if not impossible for low income women and those without insurance to get access the those medicines.
Since 2010, however, the right wing decided that they were not going to wait anymore. Reagan did not overthrow Row v. Wade; George Bush Senior raised taxes after his “read my lips – no more taxes” lip service; George W. Bush did not ban homosexuality and tried to pass immigration reform, so the right wing was going to take matters into their own hands. After all, they knew how to steal elections. But when they lost against President Obama in 2008, they experienced a deep psychological trauma and the post-traumatic stress disorder turned into a full-blown mania with idiocy complications. With their frenzy on women’s reproductive system, the fixation on whether or not and when a woman should seek an abortion, their flirtation with rape, and plain ignorance of women’s issues, parental needs, and how the women’s body works, the new Republican Party would fit right in some of the caves in Afghanistan.
A round-up of quotes by Tea Party Republicans in office or running for various state and federal offices tell the whole story. While running for the U.S. Senate in the November 2012 elections, former Missouri Congressman and Senate Candidate, Todd Akin became known as “Mr. legitimate rape,” after he told a TV interviewer in response to a question about abortion in the case of rape or incest that, “if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to shut that whole thing down.” Later, Indiana Senate candidate Richard Murdock stated during a debate that a pregnancy resulting from a rape is “something God intended to happen.” Mr. cut-meals-on-wheels for the elderly budget House Republican budget hatchet man and former vice presidential candidate Paul - Budget Hatchet Man – Ryan, who sponsored a person-hood bill with Mr. legitimate rape Akin, stated in a media interview that “the life of the mother exception is a loophole big enough to drive a truck through.”

These comments are clearly intended to put women in a box. “As for rapes resulting in pregnancy, it does not make any difference as to the method of conception,” Ryan said in a subsequent TV interview. This is the same guy who attempted to redefine rape in his person-hood bill co-sponsored with Todd Akin. In that bill, Ryan and Akin referred to what they believe are “forcible rape” and –who knows—perhaps as opposed to ‘cooperative rape’, as in some women are complicit in their own rape. Following the November election where Ryan’s Chauvinistic, right winger, and his 47% running mate Mitt Romney were roundly repudiated by the electorate, Ryan sponsored a new and similar abortion bill as if to stick his finger in women’s eyes everywhere. The only possible explanation for this behavior is that these men truly believe that women are inferior beings with little or no intellectual capacity or dignity, and are therefore undeserving of respect of consideration. Meanwhile, Rep. Phil Gingrey, an ob-gyn and chairman of the GOP Doctors Caucus, explained to an audience at the Cobb Chamber of Commerce breakfast in Smyrna, Ga., that Akin wasn’t far off on the science when he said rape victims rarely get pregnant because their bodies have “ways of shutting that whole thing down.”

In another display of sheer contempt for women and for the right of women to protect their independence and privacy from government intrusion, Missouri State Senate Majority Whip Brian Nieves (R) said in a comment on his Facebook page that abortions to save a mother’s life are “a matter of convenience. Last year Representative Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) said there should be no excuse for abortion for the life of the mother because “with modern technology and science, you can’t find one instance” in which a mother’s life would actually end.”
Texas Gov.& 2012 Former Presidential Candidate Rick Perry Made the Hall of Shame with a double play Abortion ban and Voter Suppression Bills last week
<< Texas Republicans' 4:00 AM Abortion Bill
Thousands of people rose spontaneously with the help of social media and descended onto the Texas Capitol and camped all night while the Texas Republican Legislature tried to pass
a very restrictive abortion bill in the middle of the night after their session had expired~
Republicans have failed to even attempt to implement an economics 101 policy for the country, but yet they are all out of ideas. Oh, no, they do have ideas, all having to do with women’s bodies and how much lower they can sink in demonizing Blacks, Hispanics, and immigrants. Their idea of health care policy for those who cannot afford insurance is to try and die quickly. Their message to youths who want and need an education is: who needs an education anyway? Their plan for seniors is get off your laurels and go hustle on the open market for your health care coverage. To those who cannot afford food or shelter, the Tea Republicans’ message is, you must be a drug addict or have some fundamental or inherent defect if you are not making it in our America. In those 38 States where they hold the governorship and control both legislative Houses, they run their States like dictators, shutting down debates and silencing the voices of the minority party on very important but controversial issues. But their wealth of ideas is even greater when it comes to stealing votes. With their crazy ideology, who can blame them for resorting to stealing votes? There are not enough fools, crazies, racists, and cavemen in this country to elect those people past the House of Representatives and the Governors’ mansions in the South.
