    If the GOP gains the WH in 2012 and gains control of both houses of Congress, you can expect huge cuts to entitlements, to programs for the poor, to the EPA. You will probably see the end of green initiatives and oil companies will be unleached to do as they want on federally owned lands.

    All the while, the wealthy will receive more and more tax cuts and loopholes that are being examined now will be left for the forseeable futures. Independent voters are not stupid. They know who the GOP governs for. They govern for the wealthy. Always have...always will.

    It's the Republican Way of doing things.

    Jim, if I can get that policy platform in writing and notarized, I might actually vote for the Republicans in 2012.

    Laugh on Guys! This will be the battle cry of Democrats in 2012. The GOP has shown their hand.

    If this were really what the GOP was willing to come out and define as their platform, and they could make people believe they actually mean it.... they'd win in a landslide.

    Old people will be lined up and thrown down stairs in wheelchairs... Those who survive will be employed building one of the George W. Bush libraries in all 50 states (complete with Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh wings)... Those who do not survive will be used as fuel for power plants...

    All schools will be eliminated and all children under the age of 18 will be required to work 40 hrs/week for either oil companies or hedge fund managers...

    7pm nationwide curfews will be implemented... Violators will be shot...

    All Americans will be required to go to church on Sundays.... Christian crosses will be erected on every parcel of public land...

    All records of the 0bama presidency will be stricken from the archives and any mention of his name will bring a mandatory 12 year sentence without parole...


    Just some of what awaits....

    I thouught the democratic battle cry would be "Sure we fucked up the country beyond recognition, but we need more time to really drive it into the ground."

    or "Lemmings for 0bama"

    or "Hey, it can't get much worse, right?"

    or "Who needs jobs - we have each other - group hug!"
