The Smaller Government Effect
The GOP Trying to Make President Obama Look Bad!
Reality Check: For The Tea Party Fantasy
This notion of smaller government is a fantasy concocted by the Tea Party to embarrass the Obama administration, and give way to corporate greed. Greed that has armies of lobbyists to try and dispose of the many government agencies that stops them from running rough-shot on society in general, while in search of the almighty dollar. What is evident, is the rampant denial of climate change as being an actuality.
It was truly evident by the 2012 Republican Primary race, when then Presidential candidate Texas Governor Rick Perry forgot the name of the three government agencies he'd like to get rid of if elected. They were the Departments of Energy and Education along with the Environmental Protection Agency. Three Agencies that have major impacts on society as a whole. The Department of Energy & E.P.A. to unleash or relax big oil's safety restraints, the Department of Education to make it harder for the middle class families to attain a higher education and make public schools a thing of the past while privatizing the school systems.
Mitt Romney's 47% comment is what the Tea Party (GOP) thinks about the middle class in America, He had the guts to say it but didn't know that it would be released to the public by one of those average hard working Americans he considered as a taker. Think about it, less regulation by Government oversight means the possibilities of another collapse of the banking industry or massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico where none of the guilty parties never saw the inside of a courtroom not to mention a single solitary second in a correctional facility for their respective crimes.
Another fact is that big oil namely the Koch Brothers want to hold the federal minimum wage debate hostage for the chance to potentially make billions more on the completion of the Keystone XL Pipeline. Something so noble as the lowering of fuel prices for average hard working Americans, gets trampled as they lined their pockets as well as Tea Party (GOP) candidates who will do their bidding in Congress or any elected official willing to sell his or her soul for the office that they now hold.
ATTENTION: To the millions of hard working Middle Class AMERICANS, FIGHT BACK with your vote this November! Tell Tea Party (GOP) candidates that this Republic is not for SALE!
