Is the 'GOP party' just a FRONT?

Okay, I have already been called a nut so what do I have to lose, right?
Follow me on this one. I just was thinking, suppose the right is nervous that the long stranglehold they have had on politics is coming to an end. The middle class and poor of America have wised up and they realize that the extreme right is waging war on America that they know. They realize that there is a group of people who 1.) are commmitted to a militaristic, oligarchical America, one that takes from the poor and gives to them, i.e. (the rich) and one that is basically dishonest and doesn't care. and 2.) Has no qualms about doing ANYTHING to stay in power, even really really terrible things.
These are the people who have been in power for a long time, and even when they have been out of power (as during Bill Clintons Presidency) they are always there, still waging war and holding other kinds of power.
Well, the GOP 'brand' that many have associated with this movement has now been outed by the Bush fiasco as a taker and not a giver, as far as ordinary Americans are complained, and so they must feel that its time to change their skin.
How can they do this? Easy. The party name, like 'GOP' we see are front. Its for the outsiders. The insiders know this. They have a different organization. Their group has never been a party in a democracy. Its an antidemocratic idea and as such, it would repulse most Americans. But they have always been thre. Their ideas are a nebulous thing to outsiders who larely dont understand their goals. (Oligarchy, elitism, stability, GROWTH)
(This 'party' may also be international. Crossing national boundaries.) But the members of the group know each other when they see each other. they may even have a formal, but secret structure. Many people like, for example, Joe Lieberman and Obama, are members of that confederacy, just as the various GOP-branded members are.
The GOP party that we see, in other words, is just a FRONT ORGANIZATION to divert attention from the real leaders. Other parties might also be fronts.
The real leaders probably AVOID the limelight and they would never run for President, although they might serve as Vice President in a pinch.
Okay, stay with me on tis for a moment..
Were did I get this idea? Well, I have read a lot about totalitarianism, and THIS IS THE WAY ALL TOTALITARIAN NATIONS DO IT.
Its a HUGE waste of resources, because they end up (when they get in power) maintaining TWO PARALLEL STRUCTURES but for some reason, they ALL do it.
Before they get into power, this structure I am describing is used to SUBVERT DEMOCRACY (because totalitarian movements are nothing if not UNDEMOCRATIC, they have UTTER CONTEMPT for democracy and democratic processes.
A number of good friends of mine grew up under totalitarianism and I have had many discussions with them about how it works. How it works for most people (who are not Party members) is that in each business, in each neighborhood, EVERYWHERE, there are people who are part of this parallel Party structure and those people RUN EVERYTHING.. You may work in a business and even though they are not "the boss' the person who actually runs everything is often known to everybody. Everything must go through them. If they dislike you, you life is ruined. Might as well commit suicide. Its that bad.
The only film that I have ever seen that captures this well is "The Lives of Others".
If you wonder what kinds of people could subvert democratic processes without caring, as we see, think of them. These people are working for a payoff, power. Not in the future, now.
That payoff is their ownership of America. This can include lots of money, because they reward their own AND THEIR OWN ONLY..
The people who are part of this laugh at the parties we know, they belong perhaps to both of them.
This is what Hillary was talking about when she mentioned the great right wing conspiracy and everybody laughed at her.
I strongly recommend reading a book, Hannah Arendt's "The Origins of Totalitarianism" its one of the best political books ever read and one of the 100 best books of the 20th century according to the New York Times. It is incredible and it explains how totalitarian movements take hold. If you read one political book this season, read that one. You wont see politics the same ever again.
Pray for the America you know and love, its IN SERIOUS DANGER.
