If you hadn’t noticed, the Republican Party is a house divided in at least three very distinct groups that, in their extremes, don’t have much in common, with the exception of their greed and collective irresponsibility. Perhaps it could be called tri-partisanship that seems to be sinking but I’m thinking the stinking Republican Party needs to split up into three sub-sets. The Romney camp is the Wall Street wealthy who invest and buy up the rest of the world, which in my seven-party spectrum is the Yellow Party, with their desire to seek the gold and have fixtures and jewelry made of the yellow metal. In a very mercurial way, they rationalize their plunder as just business but when it hurts people and our nation, they take no responsibility at all. The next segment of the Republican worm is the one that empowers a serpent to tempt humans into taking and eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, as if we were not already born with both inherent in our souls. They are the repressive religious right who fancy themselves warriors for the god they made in their own image; fat, judgmental, ignorant and controlling, all projections from the leadership of a hypocritical sect of idol-worshipping fools dead set against reason, intellectual progress and evolution of the body and soul. This is the Orange Party and not because Anita Bryant shilled for the orange juice industry while she propagandized against gays and abortion. These are the people that would turn our nation toward the way things were run in the novel The Handmaid’s Tale, a point made recently on TV by Gloria Feldt, a straight-shooting Aries Texan Feminist author. The third part of the Republican threesome is the military-industrial complex supporting Neo-Cons that wish to see the Arabic culture and much of the Third World run red with blood, which is why I’ve designated them as the Red Party. This is the PNAC crowd who ran with the Bush Clan and before that had infiltrated the Reagan, Ford and Nixon administrations. But all three divisions in the three-card Monty that is the GOP have legislation written for them by ALEC and take their marching orders from the Chamber of Commerce, the Heritage Foundation and other think tanks. They cannot stand on any platform because they only want to cut taxes and not do anything to help the American people. The Tea Party division is the torpedo that sunk and already leaky vessel and like the Know-Nothing Party of the 1850′s, will be a footnote in American political history. The last decent Republican president we had was Eisenhower and both parties wanted him on their side because the Libra General was right down the middle. Now it’s true that some people combine the differing factions and are wealthy religious hawks who want to spread the gospel through the military and install it everywhere we conquer, which is faulty thinking to begin with, I judge. You can’t make others like us or remake their culture, as each of us and our nation, grow toward their own unique expression of their makeup. As for me, I can’t partake of the right-wing Kool-Aid because it doesn’t sit well with my consciousness or conscience. Their Greedy Oppressive Partisanship doesn’t serve the people of this nation who need a United States of America, not a fragmented, fractured failure of the republic with no democracy, just a plutocracy that makes new laws favoring the rich and disenfranchising the poor. They have forgotten that We, the People, are the government of the people, by the people and for the people and that if we abdicate our role as protectors of democracy, then who will stand up for ours?
