Buying Influence: The Corporate Greed

Updated on July 1, 2014

Feeding The Greed

The Subtlety of Greed

In this day and age it's saddening to see the fact that elected GOP officials lack the moral compasses to look out for the very constituents, that elected them to the offices that they HOLD. This type of selfishness or self preservation is at the whim of the likes of special interest groups like the Koch Brother's Americans For Prosperity.

This kind of subtlety is as dangerous as a pack of wolves in the middle of a flock of sheep put out to pasture. While they pretend to have the general interests of their constituents in mind, their actual voting records reflects the real views and values they hold true. The sheer levels of hypocrisy demonstrated by some elected GOP /Tea Party politicians would be comical, if the situation wasn't so crucial and potentially detrimental to the common good of the people.

The real leader of the Tea Party, who's never had anybody vote him into public office!

The Real Tea Party mouthpiece!

As the GOP / Tea Party extremist's rhetoric gets more vile, it becomes more and more apparent that they don't really have the common good of the people in mind. This is evident because any and every public policy that President Obama proposes, they're immediately against it even if it's a policy they once vigorously supported.

Their incessant need to oppose the President is undoubtedly fueled by the right wing media arm of the party, namely the Limbaugh's, Hannity's and Fox & friends. Some of their insane rhetoric is not only biased and skewed, but motivated by special interests monies and self preservation. Because President Obama carefully considers his options before proposing any new public policy because of the current political landscape of obstructionists in congress and that his proposals actually stay true to the best interest of the public (a.k.a. average Americans).

But based on the far right GOP / Tea Party conversation and talking points, one might think that the President is proposing public policies that make a mass genocide look like a legitimate means to solve a problem. Now as the writer of this hub, I KNOW that the aforementioned analogy is purely ludicrous under any situation. But it's meant to highlight the sheer insanity being spouted out by some GOP Leaders.

Respect the Office of the President of the United States.

GOP's Lack of Respect

If the GOP's lack of leadership to stand up to the Tea Party when they cross those moral and ethical lines to avoid doing what's right for society as a whole. This blatant lack of respect for the Office of the President of these United States as well as their disrespect of the very constituents who voted them into the offices they hold, it should leave a very vile and bad taste in their mouths.

The Tea Party agenda is solely funded by dark money (Citizen's United) to weaken America by not only opposing the Democratic Party but to embarrass and potentially de-legitimize the twice duly elected Obama Administration. Only they're looking at the world through rose colored fantasy lenses, this political agenda thrives on misinformation and deception of the facts as they exist. Because they're hell bent distracting their constituents from the facts that they don't have any interest or desire to put forth reasonable public policy to benefit our society as a whole.

They seem to spin the positive efforts on behalf of the Obama Presidency, to suit their own in action to do the job that they were elected to do. But when big money gets involved and pulls their strings, that they'll jump through hoops for then they'll pretend to have America's best interest at heart. Hopefully the people whom the GOP / Tea Party are suppose to represent are awaken from their figurative slumber and realize that they've been sold a whole bunch of lies, lies that have a direct impact on their individual wallets and purses they'll want to change their current projected paths so that they're seeing the positive benefits.

Despite the efforts of the far right wing nut jobs President Obama and his Administration have made some very positive steps to improve the overall lives of average Americans, we would be so much better off as a nation without the undue negative influence of the Tea Party's obstructionist doctrine.

      Hillary Clinton has connections with Monsanto. Democrats, Republicans are the same. Nobody has to be trusted. OFF WITH THEIR HEADS by not voting. In the last elections, France showed its government that it disagreed by ignoring the elections.

      The Koch Brothers are behind the Tea Party and Justices Scalia and Thomas have both attended at least one of their bi-annual conclaves. They engineered the Citizens United and McCutcheon Supreme Court decisions. They have effectively taken over the Republican party and potentially our elections. They all must be stopped or it will be their government. Excellent Hub, Salvienation. You nailed it.
