“The embarrassing truth—the brontosaurus in the broom closet that nobody wants to talk about—is that the Republican Party was never the party of freedom. That Goldwater business in the 1960s was a fluke, immediately snuffed out by “older, wiser heads” in the GOP like those of Nelson Rockefeller, Weeping Willy Scranton, Henry Cabot Lodge, and George Romney. The Republican Party was created in the 1850s by northeastern mercantilists just like them, to crush the hopes of poor southerners for individual liberty and independence, and keep them bound in serfdom, paying 80 percent of all taxes collected in America.” ~ L. Neil Smith

    Republicans are the party of FREEDOM! You have the FREEDOM to become RICH! You have the FREEDOM to FAIL! But most importantly you have the true FREEDOM to keep your hard earned monies out of the pockets of lazy good for nothing freeloaders that support self serving Communism. If everyone was stoned, drunk, out of work & on Crack Cocaine looking for a rock, what would we ever produce except illegitimate crack babies and wetback tax cheats with anchor babies. Time America created something other than propaganda!
