They Want Feudalism

Conservatives want you to be a slave. They care only for the wealthy. Period. If they eliminate Medicare and put in place yet another system that funnels money and power to giant corporations, there will be a civil war in this country. Medicare and Social Security are among the few things in this country that don’t make me feel completely ashamed to live here.

What is so terrifying is the totality of brainwashing that afflicts so many workers in this country. Time and time again they vote, essentially, for their own enslavement. They do so because their brains are filled with fear about idiotic concerns about guns and fetuses and gays and on and on and on. These beliefs – and the votes they produce – are impoverishing their communities, their families and their children.

On Tuesday, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) will introduce a 10-year budget proposal that would over time eliminate Medicare and Medicaid and replace them with less generous health care plans for the elderly, poor, and disabled. The reviews are in, from experts and advocates, and it looks like there’s gonna be a fight.
