There is a mad, fanatic demagogue that has my nation by the "balls" -- and he's gleefully squeezing! He's more insidious and dangerous than any communist dictator or Muslim mullah ever could have been or is.
The enemy to be most feared is the enemy within who poses as a patriotic citizen, when he is anything but.
His name is Grover Norquist. He has succeeded in getting 270 members of Congress to sign a pledge to never under any circumsetances raise any taxes, regardless of the needs of the nation and fairness to the 99% of Americans who are not in the privileged 1% aristocracy.
His insane program reminds me of the insanity of Herbert W. Armstrong, Rush Limbaugh and all the other extremist loud mouths who have taken this country and turned it into a bastion of ridiculous insanity. He's a fanatic on a cult-style campaign and has succeeded in backing 270 members of congress into a corner where they can no longer use reason to represent the American people as they have sworn an oath to do.
Grover Norquist is the de facto dictator of the American government!
His insanity is destroying everything thinking and principled Americans have established in the last seven decades! He has turned the greatest nation on earth into a third world hellhole of advancing poverty and class inequality! He has single-handedly brought back the age of the robber barons while being painted as some sort of hero! And, dumb Americans are falling for it and voting for those spineless sell-outs who are under his fanatic thumb! To the destruction of everything that made this nation the greatest nation in the history of mankind!
Here is the list of members of Congress who have sold out the American people in exchange for political support: http://www.atr.org/current-list-taxpayer-protection-pledge-signers-a5597.
Let's make sure these congressmen never have the opportunity to darken the halls of congress again after their next stand for re-election. That's a message they, and their replacements, will clearly understand.
