"… there is no such thing as nothing."

Republicans… Just Say “No!”

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Friday, June 26, 2020

The Great American Boogeyman – “socialism” – has long been used as a political punching bag LONG before either the Soviet Union -or- Nazi Germany came along.

Yeah.

LONG, LONG before.

Que viene el Coco, Lu (Here Comes the Bogey-Man, Lu), 1799 etching and burnished aquatint by Francisco Goya (1746–1828) 

So just bear that in mind anytime any political moron (like Republicans) use the term to attempt to scare (ignorant) people.

Yeah, IGNORANT.

Because they DELIBERATELY use your ignorance AGAINST you.

It’s even in the Miranda Warning – “anything you’ve say can, and will, be used against you in a court of law.”

And that’s PRECISELY WHY the American voter MUST BE well-informed.

The GOP is VERY OBVIOUSLY EXTREMELY AFRAID of the party of The People – the Democrats.


“Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told TV host Laura Ingraham last yearthat any Democratic push for D.C. statehood is “full-bore socialism on the march in the House” and that “as long as I’m the majority leader of the Senate, none of that stuff is going anywhere.”

“President Trump has also scoffed at statehood efforts, telling The New York Postin May: “Why? So we can have two more Democratic — Democrat senators and five more congressmen? No, thank you. That’ll never happen.”

“On Wednesday, the Trump administration issued a statement formally opposing Norton’s bill and vowing that if the bill ever reached the president’s desk, he would veto it.

“Robert C. White Jr., who serves as one of the District’s at-large councilmembers, says the disenfranchisement of the District’s residents should supersede partisan politics.

“”We pay taxes like every other American state. We fight and die in wars like residents of every state. And we deserve the same opportunity to have a voice in how our nation is governed,” White tells NPR.”
