HERE is Romney’s base and pampered pets… any questions? He has no shame… he makes it clear that you and I don’t count.
According to a Gallup poll, last week’s Republican convention in Tampa failed to give Mitt Romney a boost in his presidential race with Barack Obama. Romney’s support was flat, at about 46 percent, whilst Obama’s numbers are about 47 percent. In the run-up to the Democratic National Convention on 4 September, President Obama slammed his Republican rival for not caring for the nation’s healthcare system and accused him of pushing to repeal the new protection initiatives for millions without offering a plan of his own. At a visit to the University of Colorado at Boulder, Obama said, “Governor Romney promised that on his first day in office he’s gonna sit right down, grab a pen, and repeal Obamacare. What that means is that right away he’d kick 7 million young people off their parents’ plan. He’d take hope away from tens of millions of American with pre-existing conditions by repealing reform”. So far, Mitt Romney unveiled only a few details of his plans to replace the law he wants to wipe off the books.
In turn, Vice President Joe Biden accused the Republicans of trying to undermine Medicare, a medical program that millions of senior Americans have relied upon for years. David Plouffe, one of Obama’s top White House aides, insisted, “The Romney path would be the wrong path for the middle class, the wrong path for this country”. The Affordable Care Act (called Obamacare by its opponents) is controversial; Democrats consider it a great achievement by, whilst simultaneously providing the Republicans with a unifying platform, from where they have been launching continuous attacks against the Obama Administration, arguing that its healthcare plan amounted to a government takeover of the whole healthcare system and a budget-buster to boot. Meanwhile, around 800 demonstrators marched through the streets of the city of Charlotte NC, protesting corporate greed as well as US drone strikes overseas, which they said killed children as well as terrorists.

The Grand Old Phonies’ attack on the Affordable Care Act is schizophrenic. At the time, Wafflin’ Willy was PROUD of his achievement with healthcare in Massachusetts… and the ACA is a carbon copy of that law. You see, it was a good thing when Willy advocated it, but bad when Obama advocated it. However, don’t get too riled. Even with the “convention boost”, Willy couldn’t surpass Obama… and he’s at his zenith. More and more people will abandon him as they realise what a coward and tax cheat he is, and when people realise that the ACA is the EXACT same law that Mittens signed to great fanfare in Massachusetts. In short, the Republicans are dead in the water. Mind you, we do have to “get out the troops”, and we have to make a cogent case FOR social justice, but the Republicans have no substantive policy, it’s merely, “Perpetual war in foreign parts, no taxes on the rich, and let’s pull the plug on grandma… we can’t discommode the affluent effluent”. The GOP has the most objectively evil programme seen in the USA in history without exaggeration… it’s time for all decent and moral people to say, “NO”.
Let me reiterate it… the Republican programme is objectively evil and at variance with what all REAL Christians believe. The “Greed is Good” ideology of the New GOP is directly opposed to traditional Christian doctrine and completely against what Our Lord Christ taught personally… Ye cannot serve both God and Mammon. It’s a selfish and individualistic rejection of the selfless communitarianism that Christ taught. Mind you, Real Christians have fallen short of their profession of social justice, tragically so, at times. However, it’s not the blasphemous undisguised Mammon worship of the Right. That’s made all the worst by its “religious” posturing… especially, on the single issue of abortion (I find the self-satisfied and self-aggrandising posturing of the so-called Pro-Life Movement sickening and repulsive… as repulsive as I find abortion, by the way)… remember Satan can quote Scripture, turn himself into an “Angel of Light”, and pervert things good-in-themselves to his use… the Church teaches us that. We MUST reject the Religious Right (we Orthodox must reject the lunacies of Fathausen and the konvertsy)… our immortal souls ARE at stake.
Remember, God can’t act unless we do. Evil triumphs because the good did nothing… NEVER forget that.
