This comment appeared among those commenting on Perry’s Bad Night by Gail Collins. I thought it describes pretty accurately what could happen to America. Thank you Dave from North Strabane, PA.

Herman Cain (and most all Republicans) want to get rid of the EPA. All the Candidates seem to want to get rid of the evil government. The Norquist and Ron Paul cheerleaders who want to destroy government or “drown it in the bathtub” are the real anti-American traitors. Read the Constitution. It begins, “We, the People” In a nation of we the people, with a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, if you hate government then you hate the people. You hate Americans, and, by extension, you hate America. Without a government to defend our legitimate role in this society, we become merely subjects to the unchecked power of wealthy individuals and corporations. Without government there is no way to block their power and they can act with impunity; they can exploit us, pollute our air and water, cheat us, steal whatever they want,and we’d be powerless to stop them. To destroy government is the ultimate act of democratic suicide.

Most popular reader’s comment on the NYT article, Soaring Poverty Casts Spotlight on Lost Decade:


We are entering an era of class warfare.

The rich and the moneyed corporate interests and the Republicans in their pockets have been quite bold about this: no healthcare for the poor. No education for the poor. And the middle class is weakening and falling away while the ultrarich control more and more.

The truth is, such a society is, overall, a poorer society. What I don’t understand is why some middle class and some poor actually support Republican initiatives that make them poorer and hurt their own health and the education of their children. It is a stunning triumph of propaganda, where some people support policies that hurt them, because of false contrived bogeymen like freeloading illegals and welfare queens. And the entire country is suffering for this propaganda bought and paid for by the rich and the corporations who don’t want to pay for your health and your education. And some of you agree with it! Insanity.

I thought it was “We the people,” not “We the rich people and corporations.” You who are poor and Republican or middle class and Republican: please take note of the war that is being waged against you, and reevaluate your support for policies which only impoverish you, bought and paid for by propaganda mouth pieces that appeal to your irrational fears rather than your sense of reason.
