What do the Republicans in Washington truly care about?

Are they less patriotic than other Americans? Do they not love their country as much as you?

Would they not follow the Constitution of the United States?

Someone once said, paraphrasing, that "Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely".
The Republicans have a lot of power, but the question is, how will they use it?

Will they use it to make our country better? Will they use it to make our people healthier and happier?

But when they hear... health and happiness, they have a natural inclination to reject the idea? Why?

That is why they have such difficulty in accepting an idea like the ACA, also called "Obamacare".
That it would help to keep people healthier and happier, runs counter to their beliefs as conservatives. Why?

But, a bigger question is: How much do they care about the people of this country? Do they care at all? Will they cut every program that crosses their desk?

How much do they care about protecting our country, from enemies, both foreign and domestic?

Their over-whelming intent seems to be the desire to stay in power? They are more concerned about themselves than the people they are supposed to be working for.

If left to their own devices, how long before they blow themselves up??

4. I try to avoid that term. It's rw propaganda.

The republican ideology is kleptocracy.

The only thing they want to conserve is their own power to steal.

9. Another rw lie.

They love government. They're all about the looting. They love overtaxing ordinary people and undertaxing the rich and turning it all into private profit.

13. Yup and industry subsidies

Military is a double win though.

Direct funneling of government money to corporate donor and then the military enforces corporate profits overseas.

7. Of course they love America! They think it's great!

Where else can they loot so much from an entire nation and have half the victims praise them for it?
