When Are Democrats Going To Address The Issues

Kevin Felts political commentator

While watching the rhetoric building up to the 2020 elections, it appears Democrats are all following the same ole song and dance that cost Hillary the election. Rather than addressing real issues facing everyday people – jobs, balanced trade, healthcare reform, cost of higher education, Democrats are bashing Trump. regardless of who is talking, it is “Trump this and Trump that.” Bashing Trump will only work with simple minded people, like those who voted for Hillary.

The honest truth is, voters are tired of partisan politics. We want elected officials to address the issues.

Let’s take the example of gun control. One person, who shall remain nameless, was talking about new gun control laws she wanted to pass. One of the laws was to prevent peo0ple with a restraining order from buying a gun. The problem is, there are already laws on the books that are supposed to do exactly that.

The next example is equal pay for women. The woman said if she is elected president, she will make sure women make the same as men. The problem is, every state in the nation already has equal pay laws on the books, and there is already an equal pay federal law – the Equal Pay Act of 1963. So what “exactly” is she supposed to do? Pass yet more laws that will be ignored by politicians running for office?

The Winner of the 2008 Presidential Election Is

I would like to be the first to announce the winner of 2008 presidential election, and its Twiddle Dumb. Lets all give him a warm welcome as our new Supreme Leader.

Under his reign you can expect 4 more years of:
Higher taxes
The continued bail out of the banking system
The continued bail out of wall street
Oil companies reporting record profits – while consumers pay record prices
More unemployment – which is caused by
More free trade
No national health insurance
No caps on medical expenses
Protection for companies against law suits

Regardless of whether you voted for mccain or obama, you are going to get 4 more years of the same ole stuff.
