I remember in the 1980’s when the GOP was working the “politics of envy” hard against the evil auto unions whose fat lazy members were drinking beer on the job and building crappy cars, I’m sure Mitt’s father knows all about this and so does Mitt. Today the GOP is still trying to turn Americans who aren’t lucky enough to have a good paying union job against those who do, telling Americans that it’s the fault of people trying to build a middle class life that their state has no money, pay no attention to the billionaires. In those days I was often told that there was once a need for unions, when people were dying in mines (BTW they still do) and sweat shops (there still are) but not anymore. So it got me thinking, seems the only purpose of the GOP is to cut/hold down taxes on the wealthiest Americans, back in the 1950’s when the top rate was 90% there might have been a need for Republicans, but now when you can make 20 million and pay less than 14% I think the time for Republicans has past.
