GOP Tax Reform is Anti-GOP

Pundits have been talking up the lowering of tax rates for the ultra-rich and making that the prime focus of explaining it. However, the central theme of previous Republican Party theory has been reducing the national debt, through balancing the budget, and the goal of never having a deficit. That has been their mantra that appeared as the reason for tax reduction to corporations, small businesses and individuals. Puff — that central theme is gone — the smoke entrails only hint that some Republicans even remember their core beliefs. Curtailing spending, reducing taxes and balancing the budget would eventually reduce the debt, and the country would be healthy again. Of course, we progressives differ on what kind of spending should be cut, and who needs tax relief, but for the moment, our focus is on the dishonesty of making false promises, or to be blunt, lying.
Giving mass tax relief to the super wealthy while at the same time raising the debt ceiling by nearly two trillion dollars would have been unthinkable in previous administrations, either Republican or Democratic Congresses. The donors of the Republicans apparently have upped their goals toward ownership of the United States, rather than simple majority rule. The march toward a different form of Constitutional government is underway — be wary of brains that bounce to the goose stepping of oligarchs.

Elections 2018

Greeley Indivisible will be featuring progressive Colorado candidates in the upcoming election cycle. We will have these candidates and other pertinent election information categorized for your ease of finding over the next few months, all the way through caucuses, assemblies, primary and general election. We’ll publish bios of candidates as they respond to our requests. Greeley Indivisible will not endorse any candidate prior to primary selection of the general candidate, but will feature candidates who submit in their own writing their views on different issues. We feel it is up to our individual members to choose whom they support throughout the primary season.
