I hate Republicans - I can't stand those Republicans


We couldn't believe our ears when we heard a group of Republicans chanting, "Hey, hey. Ho, ho. Social Security has got to go" on CNN last night. But that is what they did, outside Senator Rick Santorum's Social Security town hall meeting in Philadelphia. In the meeting, Santorum, the leading supporter of privatization in the Senate, declared that "it is time for a Republican solution to Social Security." But the Republicans gathered outside were more clear about where that plan ultimately leads. For Bush's conservative base, privatization of Social Security is just the first step toward getting rid of the program entirely.

These spontaneous chants say more about Republicans' true motives than anything George Bush has said to date. This is something every American should know about. Please take a few minutes right now to write a letter-to-the-editor explaining what happened and expressing your outrage.
