Corrupticans, Part II

Yesterday, I gave a cranky overview on the Republican Party, a.k.a. the Corruptican Party and their new agenda of looting and stealing with both hands and feet for as long as they are in power. Today I want to defend the Corrupticans as they are only doing what they said they would do.

Corruptican/Republican Rep. Randall "Duke" Cunningham has pled guilty to bribery and tax evasion. Jon Stewart and the The Daily Show pointed out that while "Duke" and "Scooter" come pre-nickname for prison, unfortunately for "Scooter" it's "Duke" that is nicknamed for a "top." (ask someone.) In any event, so the "Duke" was simply doing what his party has peddled for years. Lower taxes and less government.

What is a better example of less government and less bureaucracy than simply getting a lucrative defense contract approved without much effort? Isn't it better that one congressman can make one phone call to get something done rather than have a bunch of public hearings and reports and conference committee meetings? That's smaller government at work. That's streamlining the bureaucracy. That's Corruptican/Republican principals at work. That's the type of smaller government that you can drown in a bathtub like Grover Norquist dreams about.

As for tax policy? What better way to cut, lower and reduce taxes and tax burdens on individuals than to just not pay them? Perfect. Arthur Laffer would be proud. a 0% tax rate! And, dovetailing with the smaller government idea, don't even bother to file tax returns on it!

Low taxes and smaller government. Two barrels of the same shotgun that the Corrupticans have blasted America for too long.
