It is nice to see Democrats adopting republican policies. Maybe democrats are finally coming around to a reasonable way of thinking. What is really nice, liberal Democrats are not saying a single thing about the shift in democrat policy. Maybe, just maybe, the far left is getting some common sense about them. What exactly have […]
It is all over but the crying. Democrats lost, Republicans won.
What amazes me is the total deflection by the Democrats. As far as some of the Democrats are concerned, they lost because of some made up reason. According to an article on HotAir, Obama blames his own party for their losses. According to the article Democrats were fighting an uphill battle to start with.
Yes democrats were fighting an uphill battle, because of all the lying obama has done. Where the help for college students? Where is our health care that cost as much as a cell phone bill? Where are the jobs? Where is all the stuff we were promised? They were lies, all lies.
The leader of the Democratic party is not even willing to take partial responsibility for the election results. Maybe, just maybe, people walking out on obama should have tipped him off on how the election was going to end up.
Your own party members and your voters do not want to associate with you. Then you blame your own party for losing the election? Wow, just wow.
Well, well, well, good ole Dianne Feinstein just got her socialist anti-gun bill slapped down, and by one of her own. Harry Reid will not include an assault rifle and magazine ban in the newly proposed gun legislation.
Several member of the Democratic Party are up for reelection in 2014. A lot of those seats are in districts that vote for Republicans and Democrats. If some kind of ban does pass, it is almost assured the Democrats will lose votes, which will result in losing seats in the House and Senate.
If the Democrats lose seats in the 2014 election, Obama will be a lame duck president. With the Republican controlled congress, it is unlikely Obama will be able to get any new laws passed.
Lets be honest, the democratic party played their cards rather well. The party rallied enough special interest groups to get obama elected the first time, and then reelected.
Will the Republicans be able to win in 2016 or 2020? Until there is a change of leadership in the Republican party, I think they have no chance of winning the white house in the near future.
If we had a candidate that said he was going to end free trade and put people back to work, the career welfare group would be scared to death. There is no way people drawing welfare are going to vote to end those benefits.
The same thing goes for illegal immigration, gays,,,, and all other special interest groups who have formed voting blocs.
The republicans stance on protecting the rich from higher taxes have alienated the middle class.
The republicans stance on immigration, abortion and gay rights have alienated the party from those voting blocs.
The republican party has become the party of old rich white men. Its just a matter of time before they die and are replaced.
By demanding tax breaks for the upper crust, and demanding spending cuts for everyone else, the republican party is isolating voters.
Business Insider said Republicans Are Economic Terrorists
As a Republican and Libertarian, I have to ask what are the party leaders thinking?
The nation has overspent since the arms race of cold war. Once the cold war was over, military spending continued to spiral out of control. Coupled with welfare and corporate welfare, we are broke. We are past broke, we are 16 trillion in debt, and climbing, or rather sinking.
Who in their right mind would argue against the rich paying their fair share?
Capital gains pays less taxes then regular income,
Companies like facebook and google can offshore to lower their tax burden,
But yet, everyday working people are taxed till it hurts.
On election day, November 6, 2012 it became clear the voting demographics of the United States has changed. White working class, heterosexual, conservative, are no longer the majority. We are still out here, but we no longer hold the majority of the vote.
Instead of white conservatives holding the majority, a collection of special interest groups and liberals hold the majority.
How did obama win the election? Because he won the votes of liberals, blacks, hispanics, and gays. People are no longer unified behind a common idea. Instead, we are divided along racial, religious, ideology and economic lines.
People no longer vote for what is best for the nation, they vote for their special interest groups.
Why did obama win the hispanic vote? Because he talked about giving millions of illegal immigrants amnesty. A family member of an illegal immigrant voted for his cousin to stay in the nation, and that is why obama won the hispanic vote. Lets not worry about the fact that illegals are breaking the law.
If someone wants to become a US citizen, let them start by following our laws.
Here we are post-election scratching our heads and wondering what went wrong. Did obama win, or did romney lose? Obama won the election, but did romney help obama win the election?
The truth is, he should have never made it past the primaries. When the republican party elected romney as their candidate, the election was lost.
The more people learned about romney, the less they liked him.
Romney has too much baggage.
1 – The way romney made his money. There is nothing wrong with making money, it was “how” romney made his money that working class people disagree with.
Romney did not create anything. His investment firms bought, striped and then resold. That is not what made America great.
You not know what made America great? We built stuff. People like Henry Ford, people that created a product that people wanted.
What jobs did romney create, what factories did he have built? All I heard about was him and his investment firms sending jobs to china.
With the US debt deal passed, we have been pushed to the edge of no return. The US taxpayer has been beat down, the chains have been shackled and the saddle is about to be put on us. From there, we will be nothing more then debt slaves. So what caused this? Elected politicians acting like a bunch of teenage girls with their daddies credit card, thats what.
Our elected officials have spent, and spent, and spent, and spent, and spent until we are on the edge of bankruptcy. Instead of sending welfare people to college, they are sent food stamps, public housing, and welfare checks. We have built a nation of people who think they are “entitled” to something they did not work for.
Now that the national debt equals our gross domestic product, the US has been pushed to the edge of no return. We have no hope of ever paying our debt off. Over the next few years I foresee the US raising taxes on the middle class, and “maybe” the lower upper class. While big companies still do not pay their fair share and continue to move to china.
China is no longer a peasant nation, they have built an empire by selling cheap products to the US. As long as the US stays in debt, and china continues to buy that debt, there is no hope of return.
Now for a random video about survivalebooks.
Why do I vote for the Libertarian Party?
Because I vote for real change.
Ezra Pound said, “The technique of infamy is to invent two lies, then get people arguing heatedly over which one of them is true.”
The democrats and the republicans have presented the American people with two lies. The people then argue which lie is the truth.
Do you want to argue about lies, or do you want to vote for real change? And that is why I started voting for the Libertarian Party.
Have you ever wondered why the United States is in the shape it is?
Have you ever wondered why China gets most favored trade nation status year after year?
Have you ever wondered where the factories have gone?
Have you ever wondered why everything has “made in china” marked on it?
Have you ever wondered why our taxes are so high?
The answer to those questions, and many more is “your ignorance is their strength”.
The less you know, the better off the corporations and the government are. What allows mega-corporations to send millions of jobs overseas? The answer is simple, the people keep voting the same two political parties into office year after year and decade after decade.
The political atmosphere of the U.S. is like a tennis game. You have two players (the two major parties) who play with the voters like a ball. One political party will hit the ball to the opponents court through bad legislation. Then the party that just received the ball will pass some unpopular laws and hit the voters back across the court.
The industrial revolution and the formation of unions gave rise to the middle class.
Free trade and unbridled capitalism will destroy the middle class.
One reason why the middle class developed is because companies were forced to pay a liveable wage. A lack of skilled workers and collective bargaining through unions led to higher wages and benefits.
What happens when there is a surplus of labor, and companies can have their products built by cheap overseas labor? Do you really think the middle class will continue to exist?
Where do we lay the blame?
Do we blame the democrats? Do we blame the republicans? Both parties deserve equal blame for the economic situation the U.S. is in.
