It has been said that Satan’s greatest trick is to convince people that he doesn’t exist.
I believe a politician’s greatest trick is to convince voters that all politicians are the same.
That was the Clinton defense during the impeachment scandal:
“ Hey, they all do it--he is no worse than the others”.
Last week I received a fundraising letter from the Republican National Committee.
“We must support Republicans in Congress and block Barack Obama’s second term agenda of higher taxes, massive debt, and the full implementation of ObamaCare.”
“Barack Obama, Harry Reid and the Liberal Democrats have a very different vision. They seek an America of higher taxes, more regulation, greater dependency, and bigger government.”
Representative John Boehner, Senator Mitch McConnell and President Barack Obama have just destroyed the Republican Party. As we know by now, everyone’s taxes went up this year, and the top tax rate was increased from 35 to 39 percent.
In return Republicans saw no reductions in spending, no lessening of regulations, and nor rollbacks of “ObamaCare.” In short, the Republicans have reinforced the opinion that there is “not a dime’s difference between the parties.”
In fact, I can’t think of a reason to donate money to the Republican National Committee.
