New Jersey Governor Chris Christie must be wondering what is wrong with his fellow Republican Congressional Representatives as they stall Sandy Storm reparation and re-building funds for his irate and angered constituents who have waited nearly two months for direly needed relief aid.

The current chain of events show how little influence the House Speaker Boehner has over his Republican Congress. The Republicans are in a state of complete disarray as they bicker, back stab, and continue their in-fighting with each other over serious Congressional Funding issues.

A Great Republican President once stated that no house divided can long stand. And so Abraham Lincoln’s great wisdom goes unheeded as Congress becomes a quagmire of inaction, lacking in civility and charity.

Republican Conservative John W. Dean is deeply vexed by a party which has become “Conservatives Without a Conscience”. The recent $9 Billion stop-gap bill to provide badly needed relief to Sandy Storm victims falls far short of the $60 Billion required for rebuilding and subsidizing a recovery for storm victims, who are suffering physically, mentally, and the indignity of not being valued American citizens.

Today, Conservative Fundamentalist Republicans scorn President Ronald Reagan and both father and son George H.W. Bush’s and George W. Bush’s fiscal spending policies, while resolutely quiet about President Bill Clinton‘s fiscal spending policies. I wonder how these “fiscally responsible Republicans” would have felt about President Eisenhower‘s funding of the National Interstate Highway System which has paid for itself a hundred times over for itself. Construction was authorized by the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1956, and the original portion was completed 35 years later. The cost of construction has been estimated at $425 billion (in 2006 dollars).

I doubt any of these “Neo-Fiscal-Fascist Republicans” realize how close they are to being “Fascist  Capitalists” like those who supported Francisco Franco y Bahamonde, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.

I can only wonder what the “Neo-Fiscal-Fascist Republicans” “final solution” will be for the Sandy Storm Victims. Right now they are $51 Billion shy of the beginning of a real solution.

What would Founding Father, President Thomas Jefferson have done with these “Neo-Fiscal-Fascist Republicans”? He probably would have put them under an Executive Order of Arrest for deliberately endangering American lives.

President Obama’s only alternative may be to declare a “State of National Emergency” in New York, Rhode Island, and Connecticut and force Congress to allocate the required relief funds or suffer Executive Order’s to have the Department of Justice to bring suit to the Supreme Court accusing Congress for endangering our National Security! President John Quincy Adams would not have hesitated to take said action under such circumstances.

Mitt Romney just won the Florida Republican Primary and low and behold Donald Trump jumps into the spotlight to endorse the Republican Candidate. Like this is a big surprise! Donald Trump has been cooling his heels on the sidelines until he was sure Mitt Romney could win a big primary.  Mr. Trump thinks his endorsement will catapult Mitt Romney in future primaries while on his way to the Republican National Convention. If I were Mitt Romney I would steer clear of Donald Trump. Mr Trump is a cut-throat businessman fashioned in the mold after the Robber Barons of the latter part of the 19th Century who pillaged and exploited this country, devastated by the Civil War, to plunge it head-long into the industrial age leaving death, misery, pollution, and destroyed lives in their wake.

The Age of the Robber Barons began in the Northern States during the Civil War when immense fortunes were being amassed and the Revenue Act of 1862 was passed. After World War I by 1918 the Internal Revenue Service had become a growing and influential agency. With the Civil War unprecedented growth 0f the Munitions Industry; Steel Industry; Coal and later Petroleum Industry; Railroad Industries; Construction Industries; Manufacturing; Banking and Financial Markets, and after the turn of the century the Auto Industry; and Electrical Power Industries; were followed by the beginnings of the Aerospace Industry. After World War I big business and Federal Government neglect for regulating Banking and Financial Markets and Industrial exploitation and pollution lead to the Great Depression and Prohibition. The Depression and Prohibition lead to lawlessness and violence on an unprecedented  scale. During this time the Federal Communications Commission was established

The answer to these problems was the growth of Federal Government spurred on by the advent of World War II. The Depression, Prohibition and World War II caused the creation and/or growth of the FBI, BATF, Department of Justice, War Department (later renamed to the Department of Defense), State Department,  and other Executive Branch Cabinet Agencies. After World War II the Cold War contributed to the continued growth of the DOD, Pentagon, Military, FBI, and the establishment of the CIA. The growth of Telecommunications and Aerospace Industries caused the creation of the Federal Communications Commission and the Federal Transit Administration of the US Department of Transportation, as well as the National Security Agency.

With the growth of the manufacturing and carbon based energy pollution and the Nuclear Power Industry the Environmental Protection Agency and Nuclear Regulatory Commission were created.

The Drug Enforcement Agency was formed in 1973 to combat the growing threat of illegal drugs and smuggling operations. The US Customs Service established in 1789 split into the Customs and Border Protection Agency and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency in 2003 under the Department of Homeland Security and Transportation Security Administration was established in 2002, after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Thomas Jefferson and James Madison established the Democratic Republican Party which was later renamed the Republican Party. The Republican Party was formed to keep the National Government from growing into a large Federal Government Monolith. However, Robber Barons like JP Morgan, Andrew Carnegie, John and William Rockefeller, Andrew Mellon, Charles Schwab, Leland Stanford, Cornelius Vanderbilt, and Donald Trump have done more to create big government than any other factions, parties, or organizations.
