GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz questions impeachment witness about donations to Dem candidates

She was wrong about cons, they just like big houses and elbow room. If she'd said the same about libertarians, she'd be right as rain.

Anyway, through the natural process of Darwinian evolution, this virus may thin out the liberals and some of the cons while sparing us much more self-sufficient and self-isolating libertarians.

Just sayin' . . .

I remember things very distinctively!

"How my G.O.P. destroyed the U.S. economy." Yes, that is exactly what David Stockman, President Ronald Reagan's director of the Office of Management and Budget, wrote in a recent New York Times op-ed piece, "Four Deformations of the Apocalypse."


Get it? Not "destroying." The GOP has already "destroyed" the U.S. economy, setting up an "American Apocalypse."

Yes, Stockman is equally damning of the Democrats' Keynesian policies. But what this indictment by a party insider -- someone so close to the development of the Reaganomics ideology -- says about America, helps all of us better understand how America's toxic partisan-politics "holy war" is destroying not just the economy and capitalism, but the America dream. And unless this war stops soon, both parties will succeed in their collective death wish.
But why focus on Stockman's message? It's already lost in the 24/7 news cycle. Why? We need some introspection. Ask yourself: How did the great nation of America lose its moral compass and drift so far off course, to where our very survival is threatened?

We've arrived at a historic turning point as a nation that no longer needs outside enemies to destroy us, we are committing suicide. Democracy. Capitalism. The American dream. All dying. Why? Because of the economic decisions of the GOP the past 40 years, says this leading Reagan Republican.

Please listen with an open mind, no matter your party affiliation: This makes for a powerful history lesson, because it exposes how both parties are responsible for destroying the U.S. economy. Listen closely:

Reagan Republican: the GOP should file for bankruptcy


Stockman rushes into the ring swinging like a boxer: "If there were such a thing as Chapter 11 for politicians, the Republican push to extend the unaffordable Bush tax cuts would amount to a bankruptcy filing. The nation's public debt ... will soon reach $18 trillion." It screams "out for austerity and sacrifice." But instead, the GOP insists "that the nation's wealthiest taxpayers be spared even a three-percentage-point rate increase."

In the past 40 years Republican ideology has gone from solid principles to hype and slogans. Stockman says: "Republicans used to believe that prosperity depended upon the regular balancing of accounts -- in government, in international trade, on the ledgers of central banks and in the financial affairs of private households and businesses too."

No more. Today there's a "new catechism" that's "little more than money printing and deficit finance, vulgar Keynesianism robed in the ideological vestments of the prosperous classes" making a mockery of GOP ideals. Worse, it has resulted in "serial financial bubbles and Wall Street depredations that have crippled our economy." Yes, GOP ideals backfired, crippling our economy.

Stockman's indictment warns that the Republican party's "new policy doctrines have caused four great deformations of the national economy, and modern Republicans have turned a blind eye to each one:"

Did you mean to post this here, DemNow?

It doesn't really relate to the OP but it is well worthy of its own thread.

If the virus is going to kill any particular set of voters, its the elderly, and that is the Trump base.
Kind of ironic, Trumpo the Clown by his own incompetence may kill off enough of his voters to swing the election....

Gotcha.

Did you post that earlier?

I thought when I first saw it that he was running for president as an independent.

That, I would freakin' love to see.

I hope Youtube takes down all the "Shocked media/Dems melt down over election results" vids from 2016 so they don't get mixed up with the "Shocked media/dems melt down over election results" vids to come this November.

One of us is looking at data, the other one is engaged in wishing and hoping.
I see changing demographics, I see the economy having a rough go for the next year.
The world economy is going to shit the bed, can you not see that?
And when that happens, our economy is wrapped in world trade, mi casa, su casa, it's one world, and when that world sucks it sucks for working people everywhere. And when people who are taking' a beating vote, they usually don't vote to re-elect.

So you are literally hoping that the people suffer so you get the political result you want.

Apologies all over the place but.......WThell does this thread/post have to do with the price of eggs?
In December 2019 a witness (in December 2019) tells the truth about donating to Democrats (In December 2019) to GOP Cult Member Matt Goetz, who asks her a few more questions (IN December 2019) then won't allow her to reply and somehow YOU think this is a worthy topic because.......it's March 2020? It's relevant to......? COVID? Immigration? Border security? Ukraine? Campaign 2020? Libertarians?
AND you add "Just sayin'........" Sayin' what exactly? Would you like to make your point (if you have one)? Anytime soon?
Then you present a parody of Karlan's testimony which was.....she claimed that liberals tend to cluster while conservatives spread out “because they don’t even want to be around themselves.”
Karlan said NOTHING at ALL about 'libs tend to live in cities but cons prefer the suburbs'.
You've lost all credibility here. Find another site.
