The Establishment’s Creed

I believe in cash, the money almighty, creator of happiness and wealth; and in Big Corporations, its only friend, which were conceived by the holy government, born of the power to tax, suffered under regulations, were criticized, bankrupted, and neglected.

This Is The Infographic That The Whole Republican Party Is Freaking Out About

The 3 million McCain voter who didn’t vote for Romney didn’t stay and they didn’t vote third party. They died.
