It seems as though for my entire aware life the only promises Repubs have kept are the ones for the wealthiest of the country and in some cases the World. As for the rest of us, the bulk of the voters we've only been given fantasies and hope.
But facts are facts.
Perhaps that's why the GOP hates science and reason.
The wealth gap in America has widened considerably ever since god Reagan (Ronald or Nancy, one cannot be completely certain which) started the downfall of the Middle Class.
Household income has continuously dropped while the top 1 or 2% have not only become wealthier but also less taxed.
Our national debt has risen under every Repub President.
The debt is lowered under every Democratic President.
Yet most people believe the GOP lie that it's the other way around. Democrats are the tax and spend party thus raising the debt.
Here's one of those annoying facts of life:
In order to spend money you must have money.
Sounds intuitive but trust me I can point to at least 62 million voters who don't understand it.
One way to raise the Nat'l Debt is to declare and wage war without raising money (taxes) to pay for it.
Nobody wants to pay higher taxes but if we give tax breaks to people who can most afford to pay higher taxes where will the money come from?
THE MIDDLE CLASS, or what's left of it will have to pay!
But people may start to catch on to the tactic so instead of actually raising middle class taxes the GOP cleverly reduces funding for services the middle class relies on.
Oh nothing fantastic you see, just healthcare and school lunch programs and anything not needed by the wealthy donors of the country!
The bottom line is that during my lifetime, and sadly I'm no teen, one political party has consistently and ruthlessly and unabashedly done everything in their power to steal from the poor and give to the rich! And in return the rich have always shown their appreciation with commission checks in the form of campaign dollars and countless perks for the families of the Repubs.
As I enter my so called golden years the race is on. Will the American voter finally wake up and see who is and who is not on their side before I am no longer an aware human being?
Next shot comes in just under 2 years.
Fingers crossed!

Putie & Kim Jong & all other shitheads
Gunmen & G-Men & young girls in their beds
Lying to masses, the anger it brings
These are a few of his favorite things.

Closing our borders to anyone not white
Pander to needs of the nuts on the far right
Hobnob with rulers, dictators, and kings
These are some more of his favorite things,

When he sounds dumb
He won't be glum
No use feeling sad
He simply remembers those showers of gold
He's happiest when he's bad!

(Hopefully this show won't run as long as the original!)

Getting rid of filibusters and lowering the number of Senators needed to pass bills in Congress back down to a simple majority hasn't happened in ages since the party in the majority is always worried about reprisals when the pendulum swings and they find themselves in the minority.
The only way one party would risk setting this precedent (or president as dt would spell it) is if they were certain they could gain and hold the majority in Congress for decades.
There are strong hints that the Repubs are in fact ready to risk the wrath of the majority of American citizens by doing just that! This would effectively render the Democratic Party obsolete.
The insidious Repub Party has quietly gerrymandered districts across America for decades and in doing so changed the political landscape in their favor.
The plan has slowly but surely given them the edge in more and more elections. And even though there are more registered Democrats nationwide their votes do not create majorities in many States. This means fewer Democratic Senators and far fewer Representative in the House.
Every American interested in fair government should treat themselves to a look at their own election district map. In many cases the outline looks like a huge bowtie with possibly as small a center as one block!
This pulls and pools all the Democratic leaning voters into one district while splitting those of Republicans into several districts of their own. And this absurdity could result in 1 Representative for Democrats but possibly 3 or 4 for the Repubs in districts that used to be the other way around.
How can they get away with this?
Every 10 years whichever political party holds the majority in their State gets to redistrict or gerrymander their territory. The next chance human beings have to stop this awful trend toward the dark side is 2020.
The 2018 so-called midterm elections are unbelievably important as we can send a message to Congress that we're mad as hell and, well you know.
But after that the most important vote of our lifetime will take place during the 2020 Presidential election.  At that time we must get rid of President Pence or Bannon or Putin, or whoever is pulling the strings by then.
If we can't turn the Ship of State around we are headed for a titanic-like disaster.
