By now, I am guessing anyone who will vote in America is tired of the news coverage on politics and eager instead to hear what the Republican Party really is willing to offer what use to be the middle class.
When the Republicans aren’t attacking each other they seem to scream interference with free enterprise and taking regulations off of corporations and drilling for oil and natural gas.
They like to pretend that fiscal capitalism is the same as straight capitalism where people are actually given jobs, that will last longer than a couple of years. Instead they operate from corporate welfare, where they move in and get all the government subsidies along with free land and warehouses they can to set up jobs and the minute they get all the public funding they can, they are gone. This is what contributed to Mitt Romneys 190 million dollars and gave him a 9.3 million dollar beach house, while the middle class paid for it and got laid off in the process.
Do not blame Mitt Romney alone folks, as this practice has gone on for years. Paper capitalism does not offer jobs and the Republicans along with Wall Street and the banks have become experts at it. Donald Trump and his bankers could put most to shame with paper capitalism. It is not something that Newt Gingrich is a stranger to either. Nor were the Democrats, Barnie Frank or Chris Dodd, in their dealings with Freddie Mack and Annie Mae.
Other than Barack OBama and the Democrats,who it is our business to know who they are in our own State Senate race by checking their voting records, who are fighting for the middle class, we the voters need to ask ourselves if there are any Republicans even aware that the middle class is impoverished? If we are going to allow hate,ignorance,or lies to influence our vote, then we are no different from what they are, if we wake up and find that nothing has changed. I repeat:”If we are not a part of the solution, then we are a part of the problem.”
Do the Republicans know and understand that it is the middle class who are living on food stamps? Will they ever address the reasons why they continue to fight against extending the middle class tax cuts for a year while they the tea party sponsored members fight on farm dust? Will they explain that they will fight until”hell freezes over” to not remove the Bush tax cuts on the 1% or the 40% of the population, who are not paying their fair share in order to balance the budget, but at the same time demand that tax cuts for the middle class has to be paid for?
Will they explain why they can not raise the tax cuts on those paying nothing in taxes, like Mitt Romney, so they can pay for Obama’s jobs bill for the middle class, instead of dismissing it and agreeing instead their only goal, as spoken by Mitch McConnell (minority house leader) is to defeat Obama, by just saying”NO”? Thats right, folks, even though Mitt Romney has blamed the OBama Administration and his Department, and gets a good laugh about there being dust in the Desert, it was the Tea Party freshmen in Dec. who were elected in 2010, in their own party, who held up extending the tax cuts to the middle class in Dec over farm dust. I wrote a post on it when it was happening in December.
OBama or the Democrats had nothing to do with it, but instead it was just another of Mitt’s lies. Every time he opens his own mouth, he gives Democrats more to use against him so don’t be too hard on Newt for pointing out his lies, as there are vaults full to use without Newt’s help.
I don’t disagree with the fact that Newt is angry and getting back at Mitt,even though Newt’s lies are just as large as Mitt’s, but so much of what is being written for Mitt is nothing but lies. He attacks the idea that people are fighting against free enterprise but apparently he is so isolated or his writers are, that he has no idea of what is even happening in America.
It is not that anyone is against free enterprise that hires workers at fair wages, but instead that Capitalism has either laid off the workers or is not hiring them. All of us who are not involved in our own self-righteous endeavors, need to tell all of the say “NO” Republicans and those running that,”It is about the middle class in poverty, Stupid!”
The candidates all running are no different from those in Congress. They are all exposing the truth about each other, and their nastiness is no different from what the current Republicans in the Congress are doing. None of them can get along with each other there either, or anyone for that matter,but that doesn’t stop them from blaming OBama for being a poor leader that cannot lead the bunch. Hell they can’t even lead their own Party. What more is it going to take before the middle class votes them out?
It appears that the entire Republican Party and those who support them have missed out on the facts of what is important to all other voters and that is, it is not the African-Americans in the inter-cities who are increasing food stamps, it is the previous owners of the Moms and Pops, the families who owned construction companies, previous owners of trucking companies, family owned stores and shops, middle class workers, who are on food stamps, and what the Republicans plan on doing about it, that we care about.
None of them are addressing the fact that the middle class Americans are on food stamps and in poverty, or that they have lost their homes, and in some cases their cars, and if they still have their cars they are not able to afford the gas to drive them. When they do address it they blame OBama for the fact that he won’t allow drilling or raise restrictions on corporations.
Give us a break! The gas prices are up because of what happened in the gulf and the costs that BP had to pay for their failure to better supervise their wells. While they give the appearance of paying millions for the accident, we,the American people are paying for it in our gas tanks. Also what is going on in Iran is raising it. None of us are so stupid that we do not know that when vacation time comes around every year even during Republican administrations, gas prices always go up and it is not OBama’s fault as much as the protection they get from the Republican Party that allows it to happen. We all know how the Republicans fight anyone who would change it. That does not stop Mitt Romney in his arrogance, from blaming OBama.
Instead of dealing with the middle class impoverishment, the Republicans are talking about the Democrats and OBama restricting drilling, forcing regulations on corporations and interfering with free enterprise. We all get it. Republicans represent Capitalism. No one is interfering with it but we all understand that when the banks were allowed to get too big and they failed, and when all the regulations were lifted slowly beginning in 1993 on the corporations and then more aggressively during the Bush years, due to their run away greed, we ended up in the mess we are in. None of us need or want to go back to that, do the Republicans even understand that?
America and Americans cannot go back to that ever again, and certainly not when the middle class Americans are fighting poverty while your Tea Party members in the States and Washington are holding up the middle class tax breaks along with shutting down Unions,with the Republican Party support.
Certainly you must know that the middle class is aware of the facts that both government and unions protect the middle class jobs from free enterprise’s greed when they refuse to pay a living wage for a good days work, in the States. We know instead that capitalism is doing very well on Wall Street and stock piling money into the trillions while they shut down jobs in America, and build in China and India, where they can offer slave labor wages,instead.
When you, the Republicans, refuse to listen to the dire needs of the middle class here in America, and instead continue fighting for what got us in this mess in the first place, you will have to learn on election day.” that frankly my dears, we do not give a damn about your issues, when you can care less about what you are doing to the impoverishment of the middle class.”
