THE ARISTOCRACY AND ITS TOOLS     –     “By their deeds shall ye know them.” 

First:  the most important fact about the Republican Party today is that it is controlled by certain members of the 1% (see e.g. topic: “names”), to serve their own interests: personal wealth, power, status, privilege.

Second:  those controllers do not believe in democracy, they believe in aristocracy (which today is themselves), governing as a plutocracy, using as their instruments a faux-democratic apparatus and the major corporations.  If this were South Carolina in 1860 they would be the plantation aristocracy.  In France in 1780 they would be the heads of the Nobility.

Republican politicians are well-paid protectors and administrators of the holdings of the aristocracy.

Rank and file Republican voters are the servants and marks of the aristocracy.  

The people of America are the victims of the aristocracy.  They are valuable to the aristocracy only as a source of labor, if they will work cheaply enough, and as a market, if they can be tricked into buying.

Owners of the world, unite!  You have nothing to lose but your souls.  

“I couldn’t forgive him or like him, but I saw that what he had done was, to him, entirely justified. It was all very careless and confused. They were careless people, Tom and Daisy—they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made.”

F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby   1925

Let’s face it:  the Republicans are a serious threat to the well-being of my family, and millions of families like mine.  We have to band together and do what is necessary to stop them.


5/13/12:  “Mr. Mourdock [Republican candidate for Senate, IN], for his part, described bipartisanship as follows: ‘I have a mind-set that says bipartisanship ought to consist of Democrats coming to the Republican point of view.’”  The New York Times
