2020-11-23 Republicans Promises

Republicans’ promises to gain supporters

The Republicans and Trump use a technique much like what the con artist uses. They make a list of groups of people that have the opinion that they’ve been let down by the rest of society. This list they prioritize on which groups of people that are the most important. Then they analyze each group to find out what the promise they can make to them to get them to vote for Republicans. For instance, with the coal miners they promised to bring back coal, but coal is never going to be brought back due to economic and health reasons. The Republicans know this, but they know that giving hope to some group of people with promises will get votes even though the promises will never be fulfilled. This is just like a street corner gambler, who promises the sucker will win big money, knowing full well that he’s going to take every last penny from the sucker. It’s sort of like Las Vegas, where all the glitz and glamor attracts a lot of people with the promise of making a lot of money, but the casinos don’t get rich in Las Vegas from letting people win. Somebody has to lose, and we all know who they are.

Some of the groups that they have made promises to are:

Pro-lifers Who want to eliminate Roe V Wade. They want to go back to the times when illegal abortions were killing two instead of one – both the child and the mother.

Anti-gay marriage – The equal rights laws have been applied to prohibit laws discriminating against gay marriage. The religious groups still hold that gay marriage is evil. They want gay marriage outlawed.

Evangelical Christians who want someone to represent them who believes that they’re going to receive a better life. There is a big problem with that.

The coal miners, which I have already mentioned. If we keep on burning coal the whole world will be unlivable. Coal contributes twice as much greenhouse gases to the atmosphere than natural gas. Coal also contributes to the damage to health and deaths of hundreds of thousands of people.

The anti-immigration group. They’re the ones that seem to think that the immigrants have gone too far, and they’re trying to close the gate after all the cows have got out. There are 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States, and it’s going to be a very very long time before they ever deport even a fraction of them. It’s the biggest whack-a-mole game in the world: for everyone they deport, four more come in.

The School Choice group. They already have school choice: public or private schools. But private schools must be paid for by the student’s parents. The School Choice group wants the state to give them a voucher that they can spend at the school of their choice. That will take away the revenues that the taxpayers have paid and to be used for public education. The taxpayers don’t want their money going to private for profit education.

The smallest group of suckers but are far overrepresented by the amount of money they spend are the wealthy. They spend hundreds of millions of dollars on each election to try to influence voters. They’re the ones who pay lots of money to the superPACs to hide where their ‘dark money’ is coming from. Why they try to hide the money is because they are guilty of giving their money away to influence peddling. More like they _are_ guilty of graft and corruption.

Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse brought this up in the hearing to confirm Judge Coney Barrett. The dark money goes to lawyers who write up Amicus briefs that are reviewed by the courts. These amicus briefs strongly favor the side from where the dark money is coming from. These amicus briefs are a way of peddling influence on the court system.

Another group of people plagued by FUD (fear, uncertainty,doubt) are the Second Amendment Gun Rights advocates. They’re so deathly afraid that the “left wing extremists” are going to take away their gun rights that they will lie, they’ll tell you all sorts of extreme tales to make you fear that the second amendment is being abolished. It takes a major act of Congress to change the Constitution, so that won’t be happening.

Another group of people who are quite common are the anti-big government folks. They’re afraid that the bigger the government gets, the higher their taxes will be. Actually government isn’t the problem. The problem is that some branches of government are not big enough so the IRS, for example, doesn’t have enough manpower to collect billions of dollars in unpaid taxes. Meanwhile we have wasted three trillion dollars in a pointless war in the Middle East, which just keeps soaking up money like a sponge. Fossil fuels are on a decline — and it’s time we get out of the Middle East — they have never wanted us there to begin with. We would be better off if we dropped leaflets over the country offering bounties on the heads of the dictators, ISIS and Taliban leaders who are causing problems.

There must be other groups whom I have not included. Which?
