How long will it take for America to wake up to the illusions and lies of the Great Pretender?  

The Great Pretender, the GOP/Tea Party's, "mission" is to sell to the American people the idea that we Need less government, after all, government will only get in the way of their fraudulent schemes and try to hold them accountable to people and not to corporations!  

Then, they pretend that they want to lower taxes for the American people knowing full well that the loopholes they created for the wealthy means that Corporations and wealthy Americans pay very little taxes or No taxes at all, so that every-day Average Americans have to carry and Shoulder all the tax burden.

Then they pretend they want to Create Jobs in America, but to Create Jobs, you must Invest in America.  Yet the Party of No always vote Nay to any    any spending for America's crumbling and decaying roads, streets, sewer system, infra-structure, high-speed rails, and public education (to further "dumb-down" Americans)!  They vote No to any Investment in America's water, air, clean energy and her people.  They know that Investing in America means TO CREATE JOBS!  

On the otherhand, they don't mind rewarding companies who create jobs overseas or to spend and invest millions of dollars on Wall Street stocks and bonds, phony ponzi schemes and real-estate deals.  
They do this while watching America continue to further decline and decay into a third-world country, because the Simple and Awful truth, is that Republicans do not want, and they Fear, a government for the people and by the people.  Their desire is for America to go back to the times when the rich get richer and the poor get poorer!  That's what they are fighting for, not for average Americans, but for their greedy way of life and for power.

How long before Americans wake up and realize that the Republican Party is a party for the wealthy, and that they will do anything and say anything to keep their power over the people.  They pretend to be Christains but everything they say and do is un-Christ like.  On the otherhand, the Democratic Party has always been inclusive and a party for the  people.  When the Democrats try to Invest in America to heal America, they always come up against filibusters, lies, swiftboating, pretense and dishonesty.  Now, the Pretenders are trying to "convince" Americans that this depression and loss of jobs began when President Obama took office and that he is to blame for all of America's problems.

For America to turn to her former ways of prosperity and generosity, we must say No to the Pretenders, professional liars without a conscience.  We must finally get off  this "yellow-brick" road to nowhere but down!   We must stop being  fooled by the Wizards behind a curtain of deceit!  We can vote No the Pretenders on November 2nd and begin to take our country back from greed, dishonesty and deceit.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    The most thoroughly propagandized people on the planet.  Yes, that includes North Korea.

    we have a Dem president who's recently turned Alan Simpson loose to recommend congress cut Social Security.

    Far as I'm concerned, this:

    We must stop being  fooled by the Wizards behind a curtain of deceit!

    goes for all of them. The only real difference is that one party is pauperizing us a little faster than the other.

      I'd like to put a stake through the heart of the modern Republicans who have absolutely no interest in the commonweal, the good of the American community, and their appeal to unbridled selfishness and authoritarian control.

      Then, perhaps, we can work more effectively to get the DLC or other neoliberal republicans out of our party.

        here. But, IMO that makes Dem complicity with the corporate/GOP agenda even more offensive. It's heartbreaking Obama's presidency has become such a corporate captive. As for ridding ourselves of the DLC, that's a very distant hope. They're firmly in control of the Party. You're right about the modern corporations: through the GOP they're looting the country and destroying its cohesive fabric, dividing us economically and culturally into enemy factions, balkanizing us nearly to the point of disintegration. Millions of their duped victims, the idiot teabaggers, are helping them accomplish that.
