It is easy to boil down what their real motivations are, further siphoning tax money and public wealth into the hands of the wealthy and the only way to do that is to prevent it from being spent on or provided to the other 99.5% of the nation.
But this can be taken a step farther, to envision what the U.S. would be like if the GOP prevailed on everything they want. In such a country:
a. Taxes would be paid primarily by the vanishing middle class as they are diminished into more of an indentured lower-middle class.
b. Corporations would be unregulated and openly allowed to own our government.
c. Social Security would be privatized and when the next crash comes, seniors dependent on it will be left without any way to pay for their needs.
d. HCR would be repealed, Medicare would be ended and transferred to HC corporations, taking over all HC.
e. The internet would be controlled by corporations. Sites and content they viewed as favorable would be offered faster and wider access, sites and content not favored (especially any viewed as anti-corporate) could be blocked, have their traffic choked down to a trickle or have a toll booth attached that forces viewers to pay to even see it.
f. Spending on education would be slashed and public education would be shut down to turn it into being privatized, with private entities deciding what political and religious beliefs are substituted for facts, science and history.
g. Infrastructure spending would be slashed, highways and bridges would continue to disintegrate across the country.
h. Spending on an alternate fuels industry (that could revive the U.S. as a manufacturer of products that sell worldwide) would be killed in favor of financing more oil drilling, fracturing of the Earth’s crust for natural gas extraction and nuclear plants.
i. Unions would be disbanded, the minimum wage would be eliminated or hugely reduced to force wages down. An immigration policy would be passed that oppresses and terrorizes immigrants while exploiting them as ultra-low-paid workers for corporations.
j. The 14th Amendment would be repealed, people could be arrested if they don’t provide their residency/citizenship papers to law enforcement, abortion would be outlawed, an amendment outlawing gay marriage and rights would be passed.
And much more…
If the Dems want to have a strong showing in Nov, they should fight the Repubs on it being about what have the Dems done by focusing on what the Repubs would do.
