Liberals want to know why the Tea Party votes against its own welfare and the rest of us; and why to them lies make more sense than facts. Liberals are confounded by all the prejudiced votes against Obama each time he proposes legislation that will help solve unemployment by putting people back to work, and each time he proposes a rational budget that includes eliminating tax favoritism for the already wealthy – both of which will serve to reduce the budget, and each time he proposes anything for the public good. Liberals don’t understand why the Tea Party prefers to obstruct Congress rather than make sense or help the country it professes to love.
In 1874 Fredrick Nietzsche explained the Tea Party Koch-pawn mentality in – The Use and Abuse of History
This is the first paragraph:
“Consider the herds that are feeding yonder: they know not the meaning of yesterday or today; they graze and ruminate, move or rest, for morning to night, from day to day, taken up with their little loves, and hates and the mercy of the moment, feeling neither melancholy nor satiety.”
And another telling Nietzsche observation, which also applies to the media, most members of Congress is from page 35 and says:
“Few in truth serve, as only few have the pure will for justice; and very few even of these have the strength to be just.”
Today, few question all doctrines since it is easier to dismiss the unfamiliar and run with *socially prevalent views and this does not just apply to the Tea Party – consider the media grazing yonder ruminating about scandals they manufactured. Consider that the Tea Party zealot dependence on bibles written by men who had firsthand knowledge of the word of god, (i.e., who were delusional or disingenuously adept at controlling the herds) obviates their necessity for critical thought. They have Jesus in their hearts, and that’s all they need.
And every time Boehner, Cantor, Ryan, Issa, Cruz, McConnell et al communicate with overt lies to fire up their Koch-pawn troops, remember Nietzsche’s herd.
So tell all your Facebook friends, Huffington friends and personal friends who are permanently confounded by all the lies and idiots to read these Nietzsche quotes and do what makes sense for the social welfare of the 98% – fight for what is just.

This should be must-reading for every policy maker in Washington and every student of economics and finance.
