Are you really naive enough to think Republican politicians care about you?


Republican politicians don't give a crap about you.  All they care about is their efforts to convince naive Americans that Republicans care,  while they pucker up and kiss the asses of the super wealthy,  and kick middle class America in the teeth.

Latest example?  Eric Cantor.  The Republican who walked out of budget negotiations over an effort to raise taxes.  Was Eric fighting hard to prohibit taxes from being raised on the average American? Hell no. Eric was fighting tooth and nail to keep in place the ultra low income tax rates for hedge fund managers.

The top 25 hedge fund managers earned a collective $25.3 Billion in 2009.  In case you can't count,  that's over $1 Billion each.  What's the MAXIMUM tax rate paid on this income?  15%.  Can you believe that shit?  These assholes pay only 15%,  while the married nurse, teacher, truck driver, fireman, et al. pay significantly more. And Eric Cantor,  Republican,  is working his ass off to protect hedge fund managers.  And he's bending over backwards trying to convince you he's fighting to keep taxes low for all Americans. Right. And pigs fly too.

If you support Eric Cantor's Republican Party .... then you are naively stupid.  We deserve better than our modern day Republican party.  Our party is a party who does everything possible to protect the rich and powerful,  while pushing middle class America over the 'effing cliff.

North Carolina deserves better than Republican Senator Richard Burr.
