On their deafening defeat by the Democratic Party and President Obama, the Republican Party is doing what any smart loser does: assessing where they went wrong. The problem for the current Republican Party, however, is not WHERE they went wrong. It is that they ARE wrong.
They are a “country” of old white men who live in the Twentieth Century. They are throwbacks to a time that no longer exists, and should not. If you’ll imagine a hunt-country tableaux with a the Lord of the Manor seated in his wingtip chair, his Fox News-type bride dressed circa 1950 wearing just a tad more Pan make-up than necessary painted on so thick meant to camouflage vacuity, and she with her guiding hand on her husband’s shoulders, well, you almost have the picture. Sitting at their feet, wearing their adorable-not Lily Pulitzer Sunday best, the requisite children and their proper brace of AKC hunt country dogs. Sigh.
The current brand of Republicanism is on the right about everything, and wrong about everything. The party no longer even represents the best of conservatism, and surely there is something best about conservatism. But who remembers? Conservatism has been raped by its own.
Conservatism, like their women has been held hostage – so much for Ayn Rand – by a misguided need to protect their white male fiefdoms, their women as complicit as their men in their attempt to strip away a woman’s right to make her own choices in body, mind spirit and economics.
Ruled by their elitist sense of self, that they somehow know what’s best for us all, they act as the Queen Bees to what they conceive of as a nation of drones, on this earth to only serve their needs. Is Rush LIMPaugh a Queen Bee in disguise? Surely Ann Coulter thinks that she is. Oh how she and Limbaugh do drone on in mindless buzz.
The middle class is drowning and these Apoidea know it, yet they insist that their tax cuts remain in force. They protect the big oil companies and their absurd subsidies. They want to abolish Medicare as we know it and hang the youth of our nation out to dry. Theirs is a Ponzi scheme – and we see what their trickledown scheme has done for the fiscal health of this nation.
They are self-serving. What else could be behind their selfishness, their need to keep the money at the top of the food chain while the drones, the middle class, are annihilated by Republican narcissism?
They despise the color brown, except on their rifles, and deny the relevance of people of color as anything more than annoyances who they would like to see slither across the sand colored earth as they make their way back to wherever it is from whence they came.
They are the party of exclusive, not inclusive.
Thus, as I began: The problem for the current Republican Party is not WHERE they went wrong. It is that they ARE wrong. About that, I am RIGHT!
