To Those Of You Who Think They Will Be One Of The "Safe" Ones.

After the Republican Party enacts their Randian Agenda of eliminating the safety net for those who fall under a randomly defined cutoff age, they will then come for you.

You see, even still your demographic has a fairly large amount of accumulated wealth and assets, and there is no way that Wall Street will allow the Republican Party let that money go to your heirs intact without getting a crack at stealing it.

Once Medicare and Social Security are eliminated for those of us still working, their sights will be turned onto you. You will have no real way to stop them. You threw everyone else under the bus in order to save your own benefits, and in doing so, lost anyone who cares one bit about what then happens to you.

They will not care how big a Teabagger, Objectivist, Rugged Individual, Self-Made Man, Republican, of Free Market Worshiper you happen to be.

You are NOT part of the 1%, and are therefore fair game to be stolen from.

After stealing all that they can from those still working, they will take from you the last shreds of the social safety net by totally eliminating Medicare, throwing your health car to the whims and vagaries of private insurers, which will guarantee you go bankrupt in the process.

The assets you worked your entire life for will go to strangers, your children and grandchildren will see exactly nothing.

But make sure that you pull up that ladder in the desperate hope that you will remain safe, and vote Republican.

You might get three years out of it, tops, before they come for you, too.

Don't ask for quarter now that the wind not only shifted against you, it's at gale force and rising, because it ain't gonna happen.

You told us about your upstanding character as being one of your qualification to be president, and when your vindictive, petty, bullying real self was presented to the American public, they questioned not only your character, but your judgment in dealing with people you deemed as inferior, and you wanted us to stop talking about that.

You touted your business expertise as one of your bona fides to be president, and when rightly called out as a Vulture Capitalist that destroyed livelihoods, businesses, communities, and offshored jobs by the thousands, you wanted us to stop talking about that unfortunate set of facts.

You boasted about your plan for medical care for citizens of the state of Massachusetts as the ideal format for health care reform nationwide, until the Teabaggers rose up in opposition to any type of reform for any reason, so you, too, came out against the very plan you created, and now want everyone to stop talking about that accomplishment so you can then deny it ever happened.

You thought that by just stonewalling on the tax issue, the rest of us lesser intellects would just get bored with it and let it slide, which is the very tactic used by you to great effect your entire political life, and are not only refusing to release that information to the country, but are now plainly terrified that the secrets contained in those tax returns will come back to personally destroy you.

Your entire life you have been used to telling your paid underlings, flunkies, factotums and functionaries what to do and what to say, and they have always dutifully done so, as they were being paid by you and did not want to lose their sinecures within the Romney Dynasty.

You assumed that is how it works out in the Real World, you just tell any of the "Little People" to shut the fuck up, and they will just tug their forelock in obeisance, bow and scrape and willingly comply with your Lordly wishes.

Boy, did you think wrong.

We are not going to accept your White Flag now that the tide of battle has turned against you and you now ask for mercy.

"No Quarter!" was the cry from your side from the outset.


Enjoy your defeat, Oh Prince Mitt.

It will make history.
