A Party of Sociopaths: GOP and "rock star" (NOT!) Scott Walker

Are people starting to notice a clear and emerging trend in US politics?  The republican party's national heroes are documentable flip-floppers, sociopaths, liars, and dimwits - George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Rand Paul, Mitch McConnel, John Boehner, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Newt Gingrich & the entire psycho-talk parade of buffoons that ran for that party's presidential nominee, Scott Walker...

I could go on and on.  GOP is the party of sociopaths.  Most of our readers are paying attention to this stuff.  I could probably just rest my case now and end this post, but this is a disturbing trend because:
  1. Mainstream media and news is biasedtowards republicans, especially when it comes to the endless punditry and political propaganda analysis.   This is especially true here in Wisconsin as our readers that follow Scott Walker's recall regularly see.
  2. These sociopaths have been given a "free pass" by the media for decades now, which actively works to create the "rock-star" status that your TEE-VEE tells you Scott Walker enjoys even while he is unable to maintain his favorability ratings despite an extended multi-million dollar media campaign.
  3. The "big bucks" increasingly are going to these sociopaths or their PACs.  By definition, sociopathic politicians are incapable of being direct, truthful, and honest.  Even worse - they don't believe in democracy or representative government. 
All powerful reasons to get out and vote next week, Walker's historic recall election will not be determined by polls some of which can easily be proven to be bogus.  It will be determined by turnout.

Our communities, state, and nation face extreme challenges right now.  More and more people are coming to see that America's (and the rest of the world's) biggest problem is the republican party.

This is a fight that will not be over on June 6th regardless of the outcome of the recall elections, but recalling Scott Walker will send a message around the country and world and be the first step in taking back our democracy.

Profile of the Sociopath ( Mitt Romney and cohorts)
1/Glibness and Superficial Charm -
2/Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be
used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.
3/Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."
4/Pathological Lying - it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis.
4/Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core.
4/Shallow Emotions
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive.
4/Incapacity for Love
5/Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal.
6/Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.

6/ Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim.
7/Early Behavior Problems
Aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.
Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.

9/Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.
10/Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
11/Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.
12/Other Related Qualities:
Contemptuous of those who seek to understand them
Does not perceive that anything is wrong with them
Only rarely in difficulty with the law, but seeks out situations where their tyrannical behavior will be tolerated, condoned, or admired
Conventional appearance
Goal of enslavement of their victim(s)
Exercises despotic control over every aspect of the victim's life
Has an emotional need to justify their crimes and therefore needs their victim's affirmation (respect, gratitude and love)
Ultimate goal is the creation of a willing victim
Incapable of real human attachment to another
Unable to feel remorse or guilt
Extreme narcissism and grandiose
May state readily that their goal is to rule the world
(The above traits are based on the psychopath checklists of H. Cleckley and R. Hare
NOTE: In the 1830's this disorder was called "moral insanity." By 1900 it was changed to "psychopathic personality." More recently it has been termed "antisocial personality disorder",
Antisocial personality disorder is characterized by a lack of regard for the moral or legal standards in the local culture. There is a marked inability to get along with others or abide by societal rules. Individuals with this disorder are sometimes called psychopaths or sociopaths.

They appear to be incapable of any true emotions, from love to shame to guilt. They are quick to anger, but just as quick to let it go, without holding grudges. No matter what emotion they state they have, it has no bearing on their future actions or attitudes.
The notion that any elected representative of the people can sign a pledge that removes his or hers obligation and sworn commitment to uphold and carry forward the intent to which they were elected is criminal and treasonous by definition. The RNC is a subversive agent of Marxist philosophy and intent and therefore has committed high crimes and violated the public’s trust.
