This is a plain and simple question to the universe: what is the end game of the "austerity" plan of the GOP in America? We're "broke" as a nation and as individual states, they say. We can't afford social programs, so the poor, the sick, the old and any other unfortunates will have to cut wayyy back. We can't afford pensions, unemployment insurance, or social security, even if you've already paid into those programs. Doesn't matter, we're broke. You think the money you paid gives you some sort of security? Screw you!
Seriously though, how long can this go on? How long can the "winners" actually claim to be winners if the vast majority end up losers? This trajectory cannot end up good for anybody if things keep on like they're keeping on. I know that most corporations and big entities tend to live in the "now." Think of Ford in the era of the Expedition and Excursion when gas hit $4.50 per gallon for example.
But what is the end game here? What's going to happen if 85% or more of us fall below "middle class", and only 1 or 2% end up in the "upper class?" How does that work? Sure, for a little while, the GOP may be able to hold on to power with their 90% of the corporate election dollars. But when most of us are being crushed under their boots? Will we still vote for them? What the heck do they think is going to happen? I'm serious, what is the end game?
