Because “Liberal” is not a four letter word.

Are you still thinking of voting Republican this fall? Do you still think that the Republicans represent American democracy as our nation’s forefathers intended? If you answered yes to either of these questions then might Mr. C. suggestyou read this month’s Rolling Stone magazine?
This month’s Rolling Stone magazine’s cover story is called The Worst Congress Ever – “How our national legislature has become a stable of thieves and perverts ”” in five easy steps.” Writer Matt Taibbi reviews how the Republicans have made what is supposed to be a system of checks and balances and turned it into a single party dictatorship.
These past six years were more than just the most shameful, corrupt and incompetent period in the history of the American legislative branch. These were the years when the U.S. parliament became a historical punch line, a political obscenity on par with the court of Nero or Caligula ”” a stable of thieves and perverts who committed crimes rolling out of bed in the morning and did their very best to turn the mighty American empire into a debt-laden, despotic backwater, a Burkina Faso with cable.
The end result is a Congress that has hijacked the national treasury, frantically ceded power to the executive, and sold off the federal government in a private auction. It all happened before our very eyes. In case you missed it, here’s how they did it ”” in five easy steps:
- Rule by Cabal.
- Work as little as possible – and screw up what little you do.
- Let the president do whatever he wants.
- Send, spend, spend.
- Line your own pockets.

The article is a long read, but well worth the effort. If after reading the entire article and you are still convinced that the Republicans have America’s best interests in mind, so be it! You only have only yourself to blame for the problems that these fools create. If on the other hand you start to believe that perhaps the Republicans are not really representing America’s best interests, then there may be hope for you yet.
Our nation’s forefathers literally gave their lives fighting a tyrannical empire to create a nation where freedom is king and not a single group of men. The choice this November is yours. Either use what is left of your constitutional rights to vote the correct representatives into office, or suffer the consequences.
The founders of this nation gave us a fragile and precious gift called democracy. They also gave us the tools and instructions to keep it together such as the constitution and the bill of rights. It was given to us to cherish, nurture and grow if we so choose. It was also given to us to foolishly allow it to become a tyrannical dictatorship if we didn’t use the tools or instructions given to us. Stand up this November 7th and exercise your constitutional rights, vote the current Republican dictators out of office and help restore freedom and democracy as the one and only true king of America.
