Well, there certainly is no shortage of right wing ranting in this topic. Hey, since all you care about is intentional assignation, why not say that Democrats kill babies too? All of the above is just talking head sputtering from the right wing echo machine that bears no likeness to reality.
I have no great love for the Democratic Party which is exactly what I grew up knowing as the Republican Party and the Republican’s now? I think maybe they claims they make of a flat earth might be correct and they went so far to the right that they fell off the Earth.
The Democrats are bought and paid for by big corps and big money, they just pretend that they are not. The Republican’s are just as bought, but make no pretense and almost brag on being bought. Who knows, maybe it is more honest.
That I can tell, the Democratic agenda is all defenses and no offense. They seem to be able to only counter whatever the Republican’s are currently pushing. Republican’w want to kill Social Security, so Democrats oppose that. Republican’s want even more tax cuts for the super wealthy, so Democrats oppose. The Republican’s want increased defense spending, so Democrats oppose. The Republican’s want to shut down the government, so Democrats oppose.
Professor, I recall no attempts to raise taxes other than as a talking to counter drastic cuts from Republicans with no give from their side. I hear letting the Bush tax cuts expire, but that is not raising taxes, but letting the tax cuts expire.
What I don’t hear is fix the economy from either side. The best there was at any time was the stimulus which was lame. Actually, it is surprising even that happened with the admitted brag that the Republican leadership would do anything and oppose everything to ensure that Obama is a one term President. How can ANYTHING - let alone the economy or jobs - be worked if one party says they won’t let it happen and worked hard for exactly that?
So, what do the Democrats seem to stand for? As I see it, destroy the country in 50 years instead of the two years that Republican’s are hell bent to do.
I remember well the same “deficits, deficits, the National Debt, deficits” that pervaded the Clinton years by Republican’s. Republican’s win the House, Senate, and President with that strategy and poof, no more care, cut taxes for the rich, spend and spend, create two wars and keep those out of the budget to make it look better. The Clinton years had the budget under control and the debt able to be reduced, but no... tax cuts for the rich.... The national debt went from 5 point something to 11 trillion during the Bush years with not a sniffle of “THE NATIONAL DEBT... THE DEFICITS!” Now, back to the same crap, trying to get reelected on the same issue after declaring that they would do anything and everything to make sure that the economy stays bad.
How many of you remember the time when the man worked and the wife stayed home to raise the kids and the pay was good enough to have a house, car, pool, and maybe a boat, plus vacations? People were aid a wage that they could live on. Now, some work two jobs and can’t ever even hope to own a house. I can’t say either party has helped that lessen... but I sure see who wants it worse and worse.
Blue, 40 years of hard work is commendable. And now assumedly you are collecting the SS and get Medicare that you paid in to. Nice of you and others like you that insist that now that you got yours screw anyone after you.
Did you ever think that changing things so that people can earn a livable wage would stop the need for whatever it is you complain about? You don’t care about education because you got yours, your kids got theirs now all you see is taxes and want that money in your pocket because why should you care if the American public is uneducated and stupid, you won’t be around to clean up that mess...
So, what are the Democrats for? I don’t know, but they are a better than any alternative at the moment. Whatever it is at least it is not declared destruction of the country as the Republicans advocate.
Republican’s CLAIM to be the only Christians and Godly in the nation, yet openly want to starve the poor, kill the elderly with lack of healthcare, and push for the uneducated masses. I don’t see any of those as Christian in any tiny way...
