As written earlier, Leo Gerard is one of the masterminds orchestrating our economic collapse and march to Socialism. As with Jamie Dimon, most people do not know anything about this domestic enemy. The propaganda piece below by Gerard outlines a litany of cuts that the Republicans are responsible for:
So far, Republicans haven’t wailed about cuts to programs for struggling families such as unemployment benefits, public housing, daycare aid for poor working women, the home heating help called LIHEAP, or the food assistance called WIC that impoverished mothers use to feed their babies.
In a nation where few people realize that Obama is responsible for sequestration, shifting blame through propaganda works. The end result is that these domestic enemies not only achieve their goals, they are heralded as saviors by vilifying their opposition. An accounting will never happen if people do not know who their enemies are.

Republicans are suffering grievously from the syndrome that singer Joni Mitchell memorialized in the hit “Big Yellow Taxi” in 1970. The chorus says it all:
Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got
Till it’s gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
Republicans bellyached for years that government must shrink. It had to be smaller. Cut the budget come hell or high water, they yammered. Well, darn if the sequester hasn’t brought hell and high water to Republican districts across America. Now Republican lawmakers can’t stop carping about how small government shouldn’t occur in their districts. Don’t it always seem to go that you don’t know what you’ve got till you vote to kill it?
Paradise was among the first to go. Specifically, the paradise of American parks. The National Park Service, complying with the mandate that it slash about 9 percent of its budget through September, reduced hours, cut staff and stopped providing some services such as campgrounds,based on recommendations from each park superintendent.
