GOP goes for Neurotic Sociopath for President

What God told you to take over the planet? That's a good sign your a sociopath. Devil and witches were casted out of you by a fringe cult leader who thinks God is talking to him and he's rewriting the bible the way he thinks it needs to be written? That just might be a sociopath. Why is the GOP digging to the bottom of the barrel for a presidential leader? Eye of Newt? Anyone that doesn't agree with Newt is a "Elitist?" Everyones against you and out to get you, you might be a sociopath.

Tea Baggers aren't making to much noise after being taken over by the Koch brothers and funded indirectly through Dick Armey. What's it feel like to be used by the radical right?

Watching a news show about the Tea Baggers one thing really got me, the guy that said, "I want government out of my Medicare." He clearly doesn't know that Medicare is a government program.

If you listen to the GOP presidential candidates, they all are repeating the same talking points coming from the Koch brothers and the foundations they sponsor.  Karl Rove and his group American Crossroads gets it's money from the Koch brothers. No one still knows what that one group that slandered Kerry about his time in the military. The Right Wing supreme court said money is free speech and corporations are people but corporations can't be held responsible for their actions like people are. If a person kills someone they go to prison but if a corporation kills someone no one goes to jail even if they knew what they were doing would kill someone. Massy energy killed many people in several mines and just called it the cost of doing business when they get fined. Most of the time the judges are on business side so nothing ever happens because the judges got funds from an industry or corporation which they hold worth more then any human life. The minors in Nevada where the mine collapsed were left there and never even tried to recover the bodies because it cost the company too much. If there was more coal to be had then it might be worth it but that mine was on it's last leg.

Citibank was fined 280 million dollars for selling a 1 billion dollar packaged security then beat it was going to fail. They made 160 million on fees selling the package. The people that bought the package lost it all even though ratings companies rated it highly because they were paid to rate it highly. So, 280 million was just a fine for the cost of doing business and no one has gone to jail.

Bank of America can't manage itself because it's to big and too big to fail. When they were given the bailout money they bought other crap rather then taking care of itself. Now it's almost ready to fail again and plans to lay off 30,000 people and close banks around the world. Well, when BofA was first bought by Security Pacific back in the 80's it was a failing bank then.

The Glass Stegal Act need to be put back in place along with stronger Dodd Frank laws. To hear the republican say that they want to do away with regulation is just asking for more problems. The banks want to have a socialist policy of getting bailed out by the tax payers but want to be this failing capitalist corporation able to make stupid moves. All the GOP people running for office say they want to get rid of the regulations and what gets me is the mindless people hearing sound bites haven't a clue what they are talking about and play follow the leader over the cliff like lemmings.

Looking at what Greece is doing or what is happening there, it's what is going on here too. The rich aren't paying taxes and that's why they are failing. The idea we don't tax the rich so we can barrow money from the rich and pay them back with interest isn't going to last. A total free market without regulations will always fail. Even Greenspan said so being grilled at a senate hearing. He pushed for a self regulating market which doesn't work because people cheat and are greedy. One in America can a CEO run a corporation into the ground and get paid for running it into the ground and walk away with a outrageous pay package of hundreds of millions of dollars.

Perry wants to drill baby drill back to prosperity which is good for Texas corporations like Halliburton. So far the hunt for natural gas has only ended up polluting ground water. Areas that had "Fraking" done are having earthquakes which they never had before. Natural gas is leaking out of wells and cracks made by "Fraking." The Oil Sand pipeline is only for the export of diesel fuel because they can't make much else from it. Watching TV ads, where they say we are your friends and we just need to get rid of the clean air and water acts and get the EPA not to regulate greenhouse gases and everything will be fine. One ad says natural gas is cleaner then coal. That's true but it still puts greenhouse gases in the air. So it isn't safe. Texas has the worst drought in living history but Perry says he believes that climate science is a conspiracy so they can get research money. Mean while the largest fires in Texas history burned on with no water to put them out. Farmers are going under and cattle can't be fed. Only in America is global warming being played as a political toy, the rest of the world sees it as fact. Why would corporations spend billions to make up fake science to try to put down global warming. Bush said global warming would be good then people in cold areas could be working all year round building houses. Everyone discounting global warming is tied to oil and chemical industries.

For a bunch of folks who are so upset with Obama, you think the GOP would come up with a better bunch of candidates. Their debates have begun to resemble a gathering of the village idiots. Are they still waiting for their savior to come?
