"My goal is to cut government in half in twenty-five years, to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub."
- GOP activist, Grover (as opposed to 'Big Bird') Norquist, 2001.
Note that Grover was to go on to become an invisible CZAR of the Republicans. Even though he held no representative office, or ANYTHING, GOP politicians all had to take a pledge TO HIM to never raise taxes, (i.e., on the rich). This was part of their reign of terrible OBSTRUCTIONISM, with the goal of, "Make Obama a one-term president," (Mitch McConnell). That was their one agenda - not to pass any constructive legislation for we the people. Or anything. Well, the result of all this was the hyper-illegal Congressional HOLD-THE-ECONOMY-HOSTAGE COMMITTEE, which acknowledges that nothing will get done, and so it will slash the budget AUTOMATICALLY come Jan/February next year. This is referred to as, "the fiscal cliff," and a dangerous precipice it is, to the global economy. But hey. Whatever. American Exceptionalism, you know... And now, back to our story...
Romney is a money puppet, (speaking of Big Bird), who knows all about shrinking down businesses for profit, destroying jobs, ending pensions, etc. He is perfect for the banksters and megacorps. Not only that, as mentioned on Ed Schultz today, Mitt Romney has this problem of not saying no to power. He's fine for a preened, strategised photo-op, slighting the NAACP to their face. But do you think he will say no to Goldman Sachs or military contractors, or fellow CEOs eager to privatise everything? And do you think he'd say no to a Republican, Ayn Rand Congress? Of course not. In fact, a few things have been suggesting to me that MITT ROMNEY was the selection all along, ever since that meeting of 17(?) Republicans in 2009, which included Gingrich, Paul Ryan, Frank Luntz, and others. Mitt Romney truly is a front for part ONE of their Agenda, SHRINKIE.
(That's why they call him Mitt. MITT. As in Mitten - like the mitten shape of Michigan. Whenever you hear the name MITT Romney, just think of a mitten PUPPET around the hand of the Kochs. And remember SCOTT WALKER).
And Paul Ryan may have been the VP choice all along as well. DROWNIE. Chairman of the GOP-House Budget Committee, Ryan is responsible for producing the only "PLAN" the GOP has come up with in the last 4+ years, (other than to ONE DAY end all abortion), which was their AUSTERITY BUDGET PLAN. Just as in Europe, the banks, et al, have been raiding our wealth, and then trying to force us into noble AUSTERITY, to pay for their further gambling addictions. But they knew they couldn't do it the same way here. But make no mistake, what they are doing is INSTALLING A COUP D'ESTAT. A take-over of our Democratic Republic. Destroying our right to dissent, to be represented, to be delivered our SOCIAL SECURITY PAYMENTS and MEDICARE. They've been doing this since before Reagan, but it has most obviously implicated Bush2 and Obama as well. They are getting ready to drown we, the people's, chosen government. DROWNIE.
I have felt that, after some reparations with his base, Obama should have spent a lot more time NOT campaigning for himself, but campaigning for Democratic Senators and Representatives. Why? Because that's what will count, if Romney gets in. And Obama already has a fair grasp on the electorate. He has been an expert campaigner. But, still, a lot of his presence in the public eye might only garner scorn from sheeple, which would be fanned by the massive GOP megacorp campaign MALARCHY machine. He would do a lot to garner respect by simply campaigning for others, (preferably progressives).
I won't write about how Romney (and Ryan) can be hypothesised to have been planned out FOR YEARS - there is too much too it, and my CFS brain has been delinquent in collecting and congealing the facts and dirty little secrets. I would love to do that later, if I am able. Consider it, though, an important hypothesis. Also, I wrote some time ago that it is entirely possible that Obama may end up, "handing over" the vote to the challenger, (which is Romney), near the last moment. How this may be done is a matter of speculation or study. A lot depends on where the "Jewish" vote and campaign money ends up going. But it depends on many other things. But, in all likelihood, the only way for Obama to avert this loss, (unless he has consented to it), is to build up the drama for war with Iran.
Before continuing blindly, I would like to add something to the above, most particularly to paragraph #2, wherein it is written that Grover Norquist has the country by the balls, holding Congress hostage, like they're all a bunch of Medieval Banana-Republic Catholics obeying orders from Rome, where the Pope says, "Hey. You's guys in Vespuchi-Land. Do what the man says. Grover is a personal friend of mine." And that's not too far from the truth, cuz that's what the bankster/elites are saying... "Do what Grover says, and that's how you'll keep our agenda, (i.e., COUP), going." Well, what I'd like to add is this...
The vast GOP conspiracy has been going on since the John Birch and KOCH SONS days of the 1970's, with the installation of the Heritage and Cate Institutions for the Insane, and the Cheney/Romney big Pharma big Military agenda, taking the National Security State miles and miles further than Nixon ever intended. It's been going on since Nixon's 1971 dropping of the gold standard, of 1950's anti-labour legislation, of the 1947 NSA, and of the 1913 creation of the Fed MONSTER OF JECKLE ISLAND. The Iran Hostages. Iran-Contra. Etc. And, the conspiracies behind these aggregate actions are astounding. But one more recent and brash conspiracy was undertaken on the day of Obama's Inauguration, which probably was responsible for Grover's later marching orders. This was a secret 2009 meeting of top Republicans to strategise the undermining of the Obama Administration, and of course: the planning of the 2012 Election strategy...
"Attending the dinner were House members Eric Cantor, Jeb Hensarling, Pete Hoekstra, Dan Lungren, Kevin McCarthy, PAUL RYAN and Pete Sessions. From the Senate were Tom Coburn, Bob Corker, Jim DeMint, John Ensign and Jon Kyl. Others present were former House Speaker and future – and failed – presidential candidate NEWT GINGRICH and the Republican strategist Frank Luntz, who organised the dinner and sent out the invitations." The 2012 strategy included the whole line-up of crazy-base GOP presidential candidates debating each other endlessly, as a smoke-screen and a rouse, and a big-money maker for big media.
The whole, broader strategy to undo the Democrats started earlier, somewhere in the 1980's, I believe. This strategy - and conspiracy - is called the Good Santa / Bad Santa strategy. And it went, AND CONTINUES, like this: When GOP's have the White House, run the country into debt. When Dems have the white house, scream about "THE DEMS'" DEFICIT! Ultimately, this, and destroying unions partly by sending jobs overseas, would collapse both the Dems and the Government, allowing BIG MONEY to come in and privatise everything, forcing us all into AUSTERITY SERFDOM. Thom Hartman speaks about this a lot, but more can be found by goggling it. See also:
"Starve the beast" - https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Starve_the_beast
"Empirical evidence shows that Starve the Beast may be counterproductive, with lower taxes actually corresponding to higher spending. An October 2007 study by Christina D. Romer and David H. Romer of the National Bureau of Economic Research found: '[...] no support for the hypothesis that tax cuts restrain government spending; indeed, [the findings] suggest that tax cuts may actually increase spending. The results also indicate that the main effect of tax cuts on the government budget is to induce subsequent legislated tax increases.'" - wiki
- argh! I wrote a bit about the upcoming VP debate - two Irish Catholics, blood on the mat, Biden being a champion of the middle class but also subject to BIG MONEY in Delaware, etc., but this somehow never got posted!! I have no idea what happened and I can't remember if yet more also didn't make the cut. Maybe it was deleted by the powers that be! - mostly joking... This kinda bothers me cuz I'm not always well enough to write about events before they happen...
