Former Staffer Indicts GOP

Mike Lofgren, a long-time congressional staffer for the GOP, has published a scathing indictment of the Republican party in TruthOut, accusing the party of, among other things, “becoming less and less like a traditional political party in a representative democracy and becoming more like an apocalyptic cult, or one of the intensely ideological authoritarian parties of 20th century Europe,” and ” the main administration policy that Republicans object to is Obama’s policy of being black.

In the most informative part of the piece, he lists then explicates what he identifies as the three basic tenets of the party:

  1. The GOP cares solely and exclusively about its rich contributors;
  2. They worship at the altar of Mars [and not only because defense contractors pay them thus to worship];
  3. They pander to Christian fundamentalists because they justify all three of these tenets.
