The “Sheriff of Nottingham” Party

Republicans exist for one reason: to serve power.  If you do not have power, and you vote for the Republicans, you are digging your own grave.

Some…or even most rank-and-file Republicans have deluded themselves into thinking otherwise…but I’m convinced that most Republicans, especially the big dogs in the political arena, know exactly what they’re doing.

They pick on the poor, and bow to the rich…and that gets them off.

Occasionally there’s a rift in paradise where we’ll see a conflict between one business giant versus another.  In these cases, it’s easy to see which business wields more power, because that’s the business that the GOP will defend with all the pomp and circumstance at their disposal.

Recently, the lieutenant governor of Georgia tweeted this: “I will kill any tax legislation that benefits Delta unless the company changes its position and fully reinstates its relationship with the NRA,” Cagle tweeted.

Note: this is a government official telling a private business what it should do, and threatening punitive action if his orders are not followed.

What does that remind you of?
