A satire

There’s a new boogie-man in the country to fear. Gone are the days of George W. Bush; gone is the Tea Party, now it is “Congressional Republicans”. Yes, these “Congressional Republicans” make Bush look like a confused school teacher. Let it be known that these “Congressional Republicans” are the most heartless and soulless people ever to serve the country. They have no conscience and are there only to serve the wealthy. In order to make sure the rich get their tax breaks, these “Congressional Republicans” will cut services for children in need, services like meals at school, after school programs, medical assistance, WIC, SNAP, preventative healthcare and so on. They will continually try to break the teachers union so students will have no quality teachers. They will attack firefighters and police departments so your safety will always be imperiled. They will fight for the rights of deranged criminals, along with the NRA, to buy guns at gun shows. They will show their hatred for the environment by pushing for more coal-fired power plants and wanting to drill for oil in our pristine National Parks and recreational areas. Yes, George Bush, Cheney, and Halliburton are laughing all the way to the bank with these high gas prices. And we all know whose raking in the money with all those oil imports from Iraq. It’s these “Congressional Republicans”, who only answer to the rich and their Corporations. And don’t forget the Military Industrial Complex. These rich fat cats make so much money on bombing innocent women and children yet don’t even bat an eye. But that’s how evil these people are. And who helps hide all these actions from the public? They can count on Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Hannity, O’Reilly, and all the other conservative haters who spew their lies and hatred day after day. Our President has repeatedly warned us about these treasonous, vile Fascists, and by his re-election the word is getting out. But even he must do more. There must be no stone unturned, no campaign speech given, without warning the electorate, legal or illegal, about “The Congressional Republicans”. Shout it from the microphones at the White House, on all the NBC news channels, ABC, CBS, the newspapers and news magazines; the “Congressional Republicans” want to take our country down.

Yes, the conditioning has already begun. It started with the last election and the term “the wealthiest among us.” It is really sad that there are people who actually will believe what I wrote.
