Five REAL Scandals

Journalist Bill Scher has described 'Five Real Scandals Republicans Might Want To Address' over at the Campaign For America's Future Blog, which are:

1. Carbon dioxide atmospheric levels hovering around 400 parts per million.

2. America's crumbling infrastructure needs $3.6 trillion just to reach a 'state of good repair'.

3. The top 1 percent in America holds 35 percent of the nation’s wealth (although the New York Times has long used the figure 65%).

4. More than 4 million Americans have been jobless for more than half a year.

5. Forty percent of America’s children aged between 3 and 5 are not enrolled in any sort of preschool.

To which I would add the epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases (caused by Republican cancellation of free condom programs), pollution by fracking, banging on the war drums for intervention in Syria, the sequester charade, and coming food shortages from the national drought.

The Republicans present no solution for any of these problems, which is the larger scandal. Troglodyte Republicans continue to propose 'free market' healthcare (their 'get well or die!' policy), eliminating the minimum wage (a return to feudalism), privatization of everything, including Social Security and education (abject fascism), and 'austerity for workers (only), unregulated extortionist monopolies, and a tax free aristocracy' replacing capitalism – any objective observer can see that these solve nothing.

Again, I say: “If the fascist Republican Party had anything of value to offer the American voter they would not have to lie and cheat and steal to win elections.”
