BENEATH THE SPIN • ERIC L. WATTREE
What many Teabaggers don't seem to realize is that corporate conservatives are using them like pawns to promote their own enslavement. They're using the bigotry of many of the social conservatives to carry out an agenda that they've been embarked upon since the end of the Great Depression - to undo the New Deal, which brought about all of the safety nets that serve to protect the economic lives of the poor and middle class.
These corporate slave masters are intent upon the destruction of social security, medicare, The Fair Labor Standards Act, and every other program that was designed to protect the people's interest. Then, in their own words, they want to "make government small enough to drown in a bathtub" - or in plain language, too small to protect the interest of the American people.
Admittedly, their thirty-year program to take control over the lives of the American people has been ingenious. First, they destroyed the unions, then they destroyed the American educational system, and now we're left with an emerging political class that is easily control, because they're so dumb that even if they wanted to do the right thing, they're so undereducated that they know absolutely nothing about the principles that this nation was founded upon.
In a debate at Widener Law School, Christine O'Donnell, Tea Party candidate for the United States Senate from Delaware, gave the law students a big laugh when she denied, then asked her opponent where the separation of church and state could be found in the U.S. Constitution. Ms. O'Donnell has also made other remarks that have betrayed the astonishing breadth of her ignorance. She claimed, for example, that scientists have cloned mice that have human brains.
But is it really possible that it could happen in America? Wake up people - it already has:
“Come here fool and let me teach yo crazy, animal butt about the Lord. The first thing you got to learn is to Love thy Neighbor - especially me.”
“Yas sir, Massa.
“Shut up, fool. I’m talkin’."
That "shining light on the hill" that they're always bragging about was actually a plantation, and Black people could still be living under those conditions today if it were not for the many good people who decided that it was worth sacrificing their lives in the bloodiest war in this nation's history to stamp it out. But it's up to us to remain free, so what's so important in your life that you can't even sacrifice a few minutes to vote?
