Why Republicans don't live up to their rhetoric

The Republicans speak a good game, but there's a reason they don't follow through and reduce government -- there is no profit from it.

They can, however, make big profit from telling people that they're going to reduce government. They can rouse the masses by telling the people that they'll kill the income tax, but they never will.


They won't do it because as soon as they do all the things they promise, they'll lose their funding.

For example, gun-rights groups pour millions into the Republicans every election cycle, hoping that the Republicans will fight to uphold the second amendment to the Constitution. But, if they do that, they'll lose all the money that the NRA, Gun Owners of America, etc. are giving them.

They really find themselves in the perfect position. On the one hand, they can vote in a liberal fashion because it will win Democrat voters, and they can speak in a so-called conservative fashion and win Republican/conservative voters. The Democrats are capable of many types of scams, but a scam like this is beyond their ability.

So, spread the word to your Republican friends, and emphasize that the reason the Republicans aren't going to help them is because they have every incentive not to do so.

When a Republican politician is a lying cheating scumbag, it is't because he or she is a Republican, it is because he or she is a politician.

When a dogurinates on a fire hydrant, he isn't commiting an act of vandalism, he is being a dog.

I like that dog and hydrant analogy. They're the dogs, and we're the hydrants.

Thank you. I stole it from Tom Clancy (Executive Decision).
