An angel gets it's wings...

In this video,"The Hollowing-Out of Government", Robert Reich walks us through how Republican's are pulling strings of the public to justify their libertarian philosophy and are effectively, as Grover Norquist commanded a few years back, shrinking the government to the size where it can be drowned in bathtub. 

Granted, the President has stepped into every pile of crap trap the Republican's have set for him for the last 5 years, but the capacity to pull strings built by the libertarian's through the Tea Party, Fox News, and conversative radio, is very efficient and effective.

The result, however, is that ultimately the gap between rich and poor grows, and the middle-class will continue to lose members and influence. 

They've sucessfully made it impossible for the post office to be successful, they're making it impossible for Obamacare to succeed, and they actually want government (despite their claims other wise) to be inefficient and ineffective.  They want more, not less, fumbling and bumbling, more seemingly odious requirements on business and industry, because it builds their base... everytime a small employer gets pissed off at the government a republican angel get's it's wings...
