I am sick to my stomach. I just caught a glimpse of Harry Reid saying that America has voted for "hope and change". What does that mean?????? Someone tell me. Taking my money if I do well is about all I know so far. That's not change. We already have a progressive tax system last time I checked. Nancy Pelosi is standing next to him grinning like a JCPenney's mannequin...minus the personality...and the intelligence. How many Botox injections has that woman endured?
You know what this Robin Hood, take from the rich and give to the poor, is all about? It's about building constituency. The Dems have built their base on handouts. Ever since the New Deal they get votes by giving money. It's as simple as that. There are no new ideas, no grand visions, no plans for a better country. It is about nothing more than buying votes in the "hope" of gaining power and staying there. That's why they get union votes. That's why poor people vote for them. That's why minorities vote for them. But can we really blame the voters? After all, a lot of them are just trying to get THROUGH tomorrow. They aren't interested in doing what is best for this country 10, 20, 30 years down the road. Give me as much as I can get as soon as I can get it and if I am still alive in a few years then I'll consider what you are saying. Of course, then it's too late.
The Dems don't really want to help lift people out of poverty or help them move up the socioeconomic ladder. They are like a drug dealer. Just give em a taste and they will be hooked. Give em just enough and they will keep coming back for more. Give them too much and you lose a client, or in this case, a voter. That's not help. It's mindless addiction. Equality of outcome vs. equality of opportunity. Which one do you really think is better? Which one was this country built on?
The real tragedy is that the Republicans have failed so miserably that they are getting beat by a party with zero ideas. They deserve to lose...and we will all pay the price...literally and figuratively.
