The rich and powerful together with the GOP, the bigoted, the racists and the misguided have waged a consumptive and gigantic battle against Obama, the Democratic Party, main stream America, and the very concept of Democracy.
It was alarming to notice the rage revealed back in the 2008 Presidential campaign every time Sarah Palin would speak as the GOP nominee for VP. She feasted off of inciting and igniting the extremists. I was hoping it wasn’t going to be that relevant, but that was just the beginning of the televised rage, division, racism and bigotry that was to become so common on our airwaves. Anger and frustration is certainly understandable in this economic climate, but this madness has been so ugly, negative and depressing to an already difficult time period.
Remember also when former VP Dick Cheney, who used to be so secretive and behind the scenes of the
Bush administration came out at the beginning of the Obama administration to proclaim that the country was not safe and projected President Obama as weak while the extreme right portrayed Obama as Hitler and even worse. The media would run these announcements 24/7 on cable news networks.
Remember those awful, loud, angry town hall meetings screaming that they wanted their country back and don’t let the government mess with their Medicare! Then Sarah Palin invented the Obama death panels myth. Again the media ran these outbursts 24/7 on cable news all day every day. One of the angry mob town hall participants screamed, “You have awakened the “Sleeping Giant”!” What did that really mean for the future? Now it’s abundantly clear. The “sleeping giant” was all the racism, sexism, bigotry, and corruption from the wealthy and powerful.
Now the “sleeping giant” has erupted fear and terror inside our great nation. African American congressmen have been spit on. The President has been called a “liar” during a formal address
to the nation. His birth has been questioned; his faith has been questioned; his patriotism has been questioned. An innocent defenseless woman has been thrown to the ground and literally stomped on. Latinos have been singled out and targeted. Muslims have been targeted and shunned. Victims of rape, incest and sexual abuse are talked about with total insensitivity as to how they will be dealt with.
The need for the GOP and conservatives to incite fear of Muslims is hypocritical when there’s so much fear existing and created right here in America amongst so called Americans. These rants are dangerous to our well-being and democracy.
We’re losing our jobs, our homes and our lives. The GOP got us into two wars that they did not pay for. We are still paying billions and losing valuable lives trying to nation build what the Bush administration destroyed in Iraq and Afghanistan while we need nation building right here in America. Obama has brought the troops home from Iraq as planned. No one seems to care. Obama has intent for the second war to end as well. No one believes it.
Bush gave tax cuts to the rich supposedly so the money would trickle down to jobs for the average American. Well that trickledown effect never worked as seen by our current and past unemployment numbers and the GOP want this failed policy to continue. It was never paid for and now
they want to continue the cuts for the rich at the rate of some seven hundred plus billion dollars. Obama wants tax cuts for ninety-five percent of Americans. Why don’t people understand that the GOP has no intention of doing anything for mainstream America?
They just want Obama out because he’s interfering with their wealthy greedy progress. They believe in sending jobs overseas making it even harder for the average person needing a job.
The GOP battled Obama about the TARP funds and blamed him for the bailouts even though it was passed on from Bush. TARP funds have been used by many of the GOP in their districts and states and they’ve taken credit for the funds even though they loudly claim it’s a failed policy.
Financial reform was another fight Obama had with the big giants. The GOP wants to repeal this policy for their wealthy masters. Healthcare Reform was historically passed with a major fight with the giants. It’s still a battle. The GOP intends to repeal it. It may not be the best program but it is a start in the right direction. It helps children with pre-existing conditions and youth to stay on their parents insurance. It will help thirty million Americans to receive health insurance and will be economically beneficial to the economy in the long run. The GOP has misled the public and won the message war.
Obama has legislated equal pay for women yet the polls say women are going to vote for the GOP. Why? The GOP policies work against the women’s rights that they have worked so hard for. And they use female candidates with no real knowledge or expertise in government to lure your votes. Obama has appointed women in prominent positions in his cabinet and the Supreme Court. Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House, has worked really hard to get a lot of legislation through successfully but receives no play from the women of this country for a woman of her stature and power who works tirelessly for the people of the United States.
If the GOP thinks that they will have total control over the likes of Sarah Palin or any of these other Tea Party women, they’re in for a big surprise. Sarah is in this for her own sense of power. She is not for the people. Look at reality. Since quitting her responsibilities and job as Alaska governor, she has now become a self serving multi millionaire. But she still has no knowledge of this government. She’s an embarrassment to the country and to women, because she’s too arrogant to even learn.
And these polls… how is it that massive wins are proclaimed on main stream media outlets prior to voting day. The GOP wants you to think it’s a waste of time to vote. They even requested Hispanic Americans to stay home. That’s really un-American. They’re already claiming voter fraud.
Americans want to hear about jobs. What America needs to know is that the Obama administration has created and saved more jobs in one year than Bush did in eight.
The Democratic Party and Obama are guilty of not promoting their accomplishments. They’ve lost the message war. The GOP has poured fortunes into stopping Obama’s policies and all Democratic candidates that they can destroy. Their goal is to destroy Obama by any means necessary. They have won the message war even though it has been extremely misleading. America believes the GOP rhetoric. You know it’s ridiculous when Sarah Palin uses her Twitter account as an acceptable and reputable press conference because the main stream media treats it that way. The people are the least of their concerns.
Palin, Beck, Cheney, Rush, Sharron Angle, etc. are power hungry men and women who want to gain more wealth and power like the oil company, insurance company and financial industry giants that they work on behalf of. They could care less about main stream America other than using them to serve their selfish interests.
Most Americans don’t know that the majority of the TARP money has been paid back to the government. The highly criticized bailout to GM by Obama has proven to be a good business decision and it saved thousands of jobs. No one seems to care. President Obama is still working on job creation.
Obama did everything he could to help the victims of the BP oil spill. The GOP has done everything to help the big oil companies. Now it’s coming out in the investigation that one of the safety measures violated traces back to Halliburton which has always been associated with former VP Dick Cheney. No surprise there. Texas oil continues to pour large sums of money into California attack ads against any Democratic candidates who don’t want off shore drilling. When will we learn?
Fellow Americans it is not too late. Voting day is Tuesday, November 2. You still have time to make a difference. The GOP is laughing all the way to the bank after spreading the most negative campaign attack ads probably ever. Just think of what America could have done with just a fraction of the money that has been spent on those ads.
Just think how many jobs that money could have created. And now thanks to the Supreme Court’s new ruling, the United States is up for grabs to the highest bidder!
Get out and vote. No matter what you have to do, get out and vote for real democracy. Give our new President a chance. Obama’s had less than two years in office to clean up a decade of disasters. President Obama has good intentions for the people of America but he can’t do it by himself. The giants are closing in. You, the people can help. Let’s save our great nation from those who wish to sell us down the river. Vote Democratic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
