Let’s Stop the GOP's Biggest Grift of All


Let’s Stop the GOP's Biggest Grift of All

Julie Chinitz

Republicans want to clear the path for the plutocrat tax plan by mowing down our essential services.

In all, the Trump-Ryan plan would cut federal public revenue by $2.4 trillion over ten years, even though taxes will go up for almost 30 percent of people with incomes between $50,000 and $150,000 and, potentially, for many families with incomes below that amount.


Instead of letting the Republicans mow down our essential services, how about We the People mow down the Republicans.


Sounds good in theory, but then we’re left with the DDDDs, many of whom will probably vote for this noxious budget.


Sorry, but who are the DDDDs?


Whilst we’re mowing, let’s finish the job right, and left.


The Reptilians and Demoncrats are using race and gender to divide the poor and middle class. Until this is framed as a class war between the have nots and haves, the a-holes in Washington and board rooms will keep grabbing more and leaving us less. A class war would unite both red and blue states, poor and middle class, people of all colors and all genders against the true enemies. We should all raise a clenched left fist at every meeting, town hall and protest against the police, the military and Washington. The suppression of legal protest, illegal detentions, lawsuits against protesters, and militarized police are all signs that those is power will do anything to suppress we the people. Our power rests in our numbers but only if we put aside our differences and unite against the oligarchy.


Dismal, dollar-drenched Democrats


I’m still waiting for that happy day, but it will require a sea change in public perception.
