And under these abysmal conditions the leadership of the GOP continues to promote its antisocial agenda which is designed to strip away all government sponsored programs to help people in need. Yes, this party and its leadership are heartless and soulless with no regard whatsoever for the plight of their fellow Americans. It has no intention of embracing any type of job creation program. Jobs are not a part of its agenda, jobs are of no importance to them; one of their darkest objectives in the future is to have the majority of Americans work for the minimum wage in order to maximize the profits of Corporate America.
The Tea Party members resemble a gang of thugs looking for a fight with anyone who stands in their way. They appear to be against anything and everything, from big government to entitlements, to paying taxes. Their only problem is that they have no solutions of any kind for these problems so their only recourse is to throw roadblocks in the way of any positive initiatives in the U.S. Congress, just as they successfully did in the deficit debates.
Millions of Americans are thoroughly disgusted and sickened by politics in Washington and are paying no attention to these upcoming elections; but they better wake up soon and arm themselves with the facts because, if they don't, and they allow the Republicans to prevail and control the functions of government, they and America will thereafter witness a brutal attack on this nation's societal foundations.
The positions that the current GOP presidential candidates are taking on issues that are critical to the future of this nation could not be more twisted and grotesque. So, if they somehow manage to seize control, here are the Americans who will suffer as a result: those who have or will qualify for Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid; the poor, the needy, the homeless, those on food stamps, students, teachers, police, firefighters and unions.
These haughty, arrogant Republicans are flaunting their status as dismantlers of social programs and are almost daring the people of
They are very aware that a very large number of the American electorate can be termed as "low information" voters; that many millions of Americans simply do not spend time in learning the facts about this nation's most critical problems. The GOP also knows that these same Americans can easily be fed misinformation through the corporate-controlled mass media without challenging it. It is very confident that many Americans who know the facts are so disillusioned with politics that they will not even bother to vote, thus giving an advantage to Republican candidates.
The Republicans and Corporate America are preparing to generate a blitzkrieg of ads on television, radio and in newspapers to recruit those millions of Americans who are easy targets for misinformation. In these ads there will be no mention of any threats to entitlements or the elimination of government rules and regulations but, rather, they will feature all out attacks on the presidency of Barack Obama.
The elections of 2012 are going to be critically important and very contentious. If the power of the people is organized and mobilized it can turn the tide against the GOP and send them packing. But the GOP and Corporate America will attempt to counter that power with their unlimited spending on campaigns across this nation. Only a massive turnout by the Democratic base can assure victory over this deadly alliance that intends to rule
President Obama is gearing up for the 2012 elections and he's certainly going to need the support of the American people like never before. He's in for quite a battle because he has alienated much of his support base by failing to follow through on so many of his promises to bring change to
The GOP has accurately been described as the Party of No. The natural state of these ultra conservatives is negative; they are regressive not progressive, obstructive not constructive, not builders but dismantlers, they deflate not motivate, they aren't creative, they have no vision for
