We have survived. Now we must prevent the next “crusade” against our countrymen and women.
The facts in front of us are too clear to ignore. A few people in Congress are claiming their right to resist the tyranny of the many (by blocking floor votes) and willfully, if not happily, took our country to the brink of economic chaos. I have come to the conclusion that this is not an accident, it is a strategy.
The Capital Hill crusaders represent less than 20% of the American population (even less given that none of them received 100% of the vote). And yet they receive the support of a disproportionately large percentage of the 1% backing.
Plutocracy meets theocracy: the uber wealthy and the extreme right fringe of christianity have found each other to be good bed fellows. The radicalized right sees no price too large if it results in the creation of a christian based government - but not just christian, THEIR flavor of christian - unfairly branding many Americans not-christian-enough.
They are reinventing and reinterpreting our secular documents like the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence in their own image.
The non-christian nature of their efforts is seen in the “fruit of their labors”. We are all either suffering under their cavalier fiscal indifference to the people, or we have friends who have been thrown under the bus by the siege.
Today’s call in show asks two questions.
- How is this “christian” political strategy working in your world? Tell us your story. And,
- what shall we (yes, the people) DO between now and the next chance these narcissistic leaders get to launch the next fiscal hostage situation in the name of their faith?
Join us and guests for a BIG serving of civility and reason (emphasis on REASON) during today's show.
