The Democratic problem was a failure to message. For example, most Americans do not realize that due to Lack of Big Government intervention, big business outsourced hundreds of thousands of jobs to China and India! Due to lack of regulation, Big Business sold hundreds of thousands of toxic real estate, to China and India. There is so much confusion that no one really knows who owns these properties and yet they claim Big Business can do a better job of taking care of the people' s business, but the foregoing disaters explain precisely why we need government and government regulations!
Most Americans do not realize that everday, average Americans shoulder and carry the tax burden in this country because the wealthy and big Corporations pay very little or no taxes at all due to tax loopholes, which is just another way of lying and cheating and getting over on the American people. If the American people want more money in their wallets, than they should go about getting the wealthy to pay their fair share once again.
It's amazing to me the "fickleness" of the American people to go back and elect these GOP operatives that brought this country to the brink of ruin and catastrophe. Haven't they suffered enough? The GOP Party is obviously a group for big business and corporations and Not a group for the People! They are not even for small businesses, though they pretend to be. If they were for small business, then why are there so many large Wal-marts, Lowes, Home Depots, so that the small mom and pop operations are squeezed out of business. Democrats even have to fight the GOP to get them to extend UE benefits when needed, especially when GOP know that the jobs are just not here anymore due to their policies of outsourcing good jobs to China and India and not only the Jobs but Mortgages were sold to China and India also, that is why no one knows who owns these toxic mortgages.
GOP claim they want jobs for the American people, however, they continue to "double-speak" everyone knows that to create jobs, one must investment in America and her infrastructure which by the way, creates jobs, jobs, jobs! Does anyone in the GOP Party have a heart or compassion for anyone or anything other than big business?
What really amazes me, though, is that our soon to be Speaker, John Boehner, has not been more criticized by the media for campaigning Proudly with the Nazi sympathizer, Ohio's Congressional Candidate, Rich Lott, who wears a Nazi uniform on the week-ends, a symbolism for "white supremacy" and for one of our most darkest times on this planet!
As E. J. Dionne so clearly stated in his recent article, Democrats did not defend their accomplishments and they let Republicans shape and distort the message. This can no longer be the case going forward! Hey if they cannot defend their accomplishments, then they need to get out of the business, becasue this is a battle for the Soul of the people. Remember when you surmize the red states and the blue states, well red is the symbol for anger and passion and blue the symbol for love and peace.... What will it be America?
And yes, we need Government!
