The Republican presidential candidates have become so intrinsically embedded into elitism that they proclaim it’s their right to adjudicate justice. The new acronym for the GOP should be “Great Obstructionist Party” instead of the Grand Old Party. Despite any proposal or nomination suggested by President Obama, the conservatives have affirmed that they will obstruct a pathway to any resolution unless it’s partial to conservative based precepts. The basic precepts of the Republican party have become so distorted that candidates like Jeb Bush remarked that the 63% of Americans can’t afford to make a $500 car payment… which generally would be considered the amount of luxury car like Lexus or Mercedes.
Apparently, Jeb Bush failed to realize this is because of a steadily diminishing “middle class” relative to the greed of the top 1% and Wall Street speculation practices. It is inconceivable why Jeb Bush in association with other Republican governors love to tout how they rejected Medicaid Expansion funds that would help improve healthcare for their constituents. Consequently, their decisions have forced the closures of rural hospitals and clinics forcing the uninsured to go emergency rooms with sky-rocketing healthcare costs which many patients are rarely able to reimburse these facilities after receiving the required care. The incorrect assumption that this primarily applies to illegal immigrants, and poverty stricken African-Americans is what conservatives use to propagandize their corporate profit agenda. Unfortunately, the constant attempt to repeal Obamacare is hindering needed care for veterans and senior citizens of all ethnicities as well.
This exclusionary attitude of Republicans towards immigrants and citizens living at the poverty level demonstrates that they have disregarded the fact that all Americans, with the exception of Native Americans, are originally immigrants. Whether they migrated from Europe, Australia, Canada or were involuntarily transported to America from Africa. Native American tribes occupied the United States before the pilgrims even landed on Plymouth Rock in 1620. Legal citizens who for generations have extolled their rights to “freedom” claiming land and privileges that were attained by war and revolutions should not forget that they were in some cases escaping indentured servitude…(Indentured servitude was a labor system where people paid for their passage to the New World by working for an employer for a certain number of years. It was widely employed in the 18th century in the British colonies in North America and elsewhere. It was especially used as a way for the poor in Britain and the German states to get passage to the American colonies…wikipedia).
