Another rant against American republicans (#2629)

     To the world at large and all of us here at home. There are many of us who are not American conservative republicans. We are progressive liberals who see the gaping flaws in our particular economic capitalism. We also see the necessity to winning over public offices throughout our country in order to stop the anti-democratic push from republican policies. We are here and are waging our own effort to overturn the effects of a previous conservative majority Supreme Court that among a few things adjudicated that money is speech and corporations are people, while also telling us that the effects of racism were in our past. Just these few horrendous outcomes have given republicans what they need to restrict the vote while also drowning out voices of opposition against them.
     American conservative/republicans are a scourge here because they do not know how to live within democratic principles. Instead they have chosen to live under the cunning of capitalistic dogma. You know, where dog eat dog represents the worth and value of a nation. These republicans are taking our democracy and are trying to replace it with a combination of religion as defined by them and an oligarchic structure where only the wealthy are the true decision makers of American policy. These republicans are not representative of the majority of us here but their wealth gives that impression.
     There are nearly 47 million of us here living in poverty https://www.census.gov/hhes/www/poverty/about/overview/. While there are about 5.4 million job openings http://www.bls.gov/news.release/jolts.nr0.htm. That the disparity is such isn't even the worst of it. Too many of these 5.4 million job openings are technical by nature and require degrees we poor Americans do not have http://money.cnn.com/2015/08/07/news/economy/us-economy-job-skills-gap/?iid=EL. With the outrageous cost of higher education, few from the poverty class can even consider going to college http://www.pewtrusts.org/en/research-and-analysis/blogs/stateline/2016/01/25/the-high-cost-of-higher-education. So while republicans continue to blame the poor for being poor, many do little to nothing but work to create more poor people. Republicans need to be stopped from holding public office and now is the time to do it!
