The idiomatic phrase ‘to swallow something “hook, line and sinker” ‘ has been taken to a level of deception that can only be described as flawless by Mitt Romney. Please allow me to explain. The “hook”: Mitt and his Republican political cronies convince the public that his political opposition is “not one of us,” “a stranger,” “not an American,” and “he was not born here.” Donald Trump was exceptional in convincing gullible Americans of this. The “Line”: Just as he did at Bain Capitol, Mitt convinced the workers that “All will be well.” He throws in numerous additional lines. Such as, informing employees that vacation and sick days will be increased; that good faith bargaining will be the cornerstone of his company policy; and that his business experience is far superior, and his leadership is needed to make the company viable again. The “sinker”: While providing these words of comfort, Mitt and his coconspirators raid the employee pension, life insurance premiums, and medical insurance fund of all its assets. Mitt assumes sponsorship of the employee 401(k) plan, taking the employer contributions retroactively, which includes the employee-vested amounts. Under the cover of nights or weekends, Mitt brings equipment wholesale buyers in the company buildings at night – Selling all the equipment, tools, stock, and anything else of value. Using the leverage of the flourishing company’s name, Mitt and his confederates borrows the maximum from an unsuspecting bank or loan institution using the pretext of “restructuring” the company. The coup d’état is swift and brutal. The employees are called together and informed that the company was closing due to President Obama’s failed economic policies; and then are escorted directly off the property. Or, after an extended holiday the employees arrive at work to find that the gates are locked; and during their absence, the company has been stripped clean. That is Mitt Romney’s and the Republican plan for America.

Diversity of political ideals, coupled with compromise and respect towards political opponents are principles that are vanishing from American Politics. Though there are exceptions, venerable politicians are now being pigeonholed by their political adversaries, and sometimes even their own party, as “moderates,” liberal,” “socialist,” “un-American,” and “not one of us.” Unfounded accusations of “communist”, “Marist”, and “socialist” usually don’t get you political points from mainstream American voters. Yet, far-reaching discourse from ideologues has thrown civility out the skyscraper window, and under the preverbal bus once civility hits the sidewalk of reality. By emulating the “Second Red Scare” of “McCarthyism” with their rendition of a “Third Scare,” they allege politicians, pundits, and anyone else that find disagreeable are “Radical Islamic Fundamentalist” or associated with them. As during McCarthy’s era, a sliver of proof is not necessary.
The fearful moderate remnants who continue to espouse William F. Buckley’s “defining the boundaries of conservatism” are now relegated to the back of the political arena. Regardless of their political affiliation, or views, I admire them for standing up for their belief. And when they had a "Sister Souljah moment" moment, they repudiated extremist in their party, even though it may adversely affect them politically. Which brings me to the purpose of my blog page: To communicate the truth and facts, while exposing the false and distortions of facts promoted by politicians, , their pundits, and news organizations, such as Fox.
