The Republican Revolution & OxyContin Dreams


“Republican Revolution” Yes, there actually is a web site named that. It has no bearing on reality. But, I suppose, if North Korea can call itself a ‘democratic people’s republic,’ then the hoary old GOP can say they stand for ‘revolution.’

But how they can maintain this with a straight face is beyond me. But, then, to quote from Dustin Hoffman’s character in the movie “Confidence”: “You’re a good con man; it’s hard to tell when you’re lying.”

The problem Republicans face is they’re not exactly new kids on the block. During Bush II when they had TOTAL control of the Federal government including the White House, both Houses of Congress, the Supreme Court, Federal Reserve, regulatory agencies, et al, their record was a pretty shabby one. In looking at criminals, FBI profilers will tell you that the best guide for future behavior is past behavior.

In decades past, Republicans were fond of accusing Democrats of waging ‘no-win’ wars. What’s the GOP record? Well, they conquered Grenada! Since then, Reagan pulled out of Lebanon. Ollie North, at the behest of the same Administration in Iran-Contra shipped Tow missiles to Iran which were then handed over to Hezbollah, which in turn, used these anti-tank missiles as the primary weapon to drive the IDF out of south Lebanon. So much for being friends of Israel.

Then there is 9/11. While I don’t trust the the account of the Bush-Cheney Junta, I’m no Truther. The WORST security lapse in our nation’s history and NO ONE was fired. No one was held accountable! Had Al Gore been President, Democrats would have lost the National Security issue for a generation.

Instead, the Republican Regime launches it’s own no-win wars in Iraq & Afghanistan. They tried to do it on the cheap but found their dinky little dicks caught in the ringer. Now they’re crying for more against Iran. Talk about a big appetite for a bunch of whiners!

Now I don’t like the Iranian Regime of the Mullahs any better than the Republican Party does. Actually, I like that regime less because I never traded arms for hostages with them. But if you’re going to do it, do it right!

George Wallace said it best about the Vietnam War: “Go in and win or get the hell out!”

If you’re going to fight a War with Iran, this is what you have to do:

1) Mobilize the country. Put more Republicans in the Cabinet. Place Fox News under military censorship. Tell Geraldo Rivera if he gives away the position of our troops to the Enemy again, he’ll be shot for treason ON THE SPOT! If Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity & Rush Limbaugh are divisive behind the lines, pull them  off the air and ship them to Guantanamo Bay for the duration.

2) Impose a 20% surtax across the board to pay for the war.

3) Universal draft with NO EXEMPTIONS!

If you don’t do this, then don’t bother and quit yapping.

And don’t tell me you’re for revolution.

I lead the group, The National Resistance to the Obama Regime. So why am I so tough on the GOP? Well, you can’t beat something with nothing and Republicans are offering NOTHING!
