I fear the Republican Party members of the House of Representatives and the US Senate. They are my #1 “nemesis.”
They are much more “conservative” than are the conservative-Republican citizens they are supposed to represent. While research indicates that 63 percent of Americans who identify themselves as Republicans do not want Social Security benefits to be cut, my estimate is that 95-99 percent of Republicans in the House and Senate do want to cut Social Security benefits. My research and studies tell me that 75 percent of them (and perhaps more than this) would love to abolish Social Security and every other federal government social program that helps people but will never admit it, because they know that most Republican citizens do not believe in that.
Do you realize how many tens and tens of millions of Americans would be devastated if all of these programs would be abolished? It scares the dickens out of me.
If you doubt my belief that most Republican members of the House and Senate are secretly cold-hearted “Survival-of-the-Fittest” Social Darwinists, then please read the award-winning book “Dark Money,” written by the 12-time award-winning author Jane Mayer, and then tell me what you think.
