Like Leo Strauss, Republicans know that the masses of Americans can’t be trusted to vote for policies that favor the rich if left to their own devices. They know the Rich are in danger of being outnumbered and outvoted and thus need the protection of Republicans and Conservative policy. Indeed, during the recent election, they regularly objected that poor people were voting in their own interest (which is obviously unnatural and wrong). Republicans in recent years have watched in horror as Democracy has repeatedly threatened to rear its ugly head and deny the Rich their rightful say, thus destroying our Economy and our all important Free Market.

But, Republicans have a hero in President Obama. He has worked tirelessly to protect them and their policies (and most importantly their Rich benefactors) from the forces of Democracy. When, at the end of the Cheney/Bush Regime, Republicans and their policies had been thoroughly rejected by the voters, President Obama was there bending over backwards to assure that Republicans and their policies would continue to receive consideration and acceptance despite the forces of Democracy and the voters who simply don’t know enough to vote correctly. His efforts continue to this day, bailing out Republicans when they're in dangerously vulnerable situations.

Republicans, along with President Obama, understand that America relies on Rich people and that their interests must be served above all others, since Rich people are obviously successful and know what’s best for America. The unwashed and unschooled masses can’t be allowed to upset the applecart and undermine the natural order of things. Fortunately, The President and the Republicans are on the job keeping all that is right and good about America safe from the disruptive forces of Democracy and the destructive tendency of voters to favor themselves over the interests of the more deserving Rich.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

              what is your objection to my diary? Do you feel that I've mischaracterized Republicans?

              •  Are you serious? (0+ / 0-)

                And I'm asking that seriously. I looked at your profile and was shocked that your UID was so low because this really seems like a BS troll diary meant solely to provoke. You outright call President Obama an enemy of democracy and say that he's worked tirelessly in protection of the Republican party without any real argumentation for that position (besides ranting) or suggestions as to what could have been done differently given the congress he had/has to work with. Even if I agreed with your basic premise and even if I felt that premise wasn't presented as a provocation, you still offer no course of constructive action.

                It's a diary that slanders the president and, to my reading, was designed to inflame the community. Hence the HR.

                It's after 1 and I really can't stay and have a longer discussion about this if you were even interested in such a thing. As a show of good faith, I removed my troll tag but I have a very hard time believing that your question about what my issue was with your diary was a legitimate one.

                •  you are entitled to your opinion (0+ / 0-)

                  even as I am to mine... The President has described his policies as "centrist republican from the 80's"; he has spoken of the republicans rejecting his policies even though they were originally supported by republicans; he has to know the public overwhelmingly rejects any cuts in social spending and elected him with a mandate to protect same, yet he proposes trimming SS benefits; he consistently gives up leverage he has against republicans; this diary is essentially a smartass restatement of views already featured on the front page. It may not be what you would consider my most "provocative" diary. I have never been referred to as a troll before.

    But he got everything he wanted. Piece of cake.

    We seem to have forgotten that Democracy was sold out before 9/11.
    Money, money, money...

    Republicans? They just trip on nasty bat shit crazy!

    Democrats...forever visualizing lifeboats on Titanic.

    Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time.
