Choices and Consequences, and we are the ones who will make the choice in November. Yes my friends, the decisions are ours. We are the ones who in the end have to sort it all out, ponder and consider, and in the end make a choice that will, without any doubt in my mind, effect the history of this country for many years to come. The choice we make is ours. The consequences are a result of that decision.
the year 2012, of all the years I remember in history past, will without a doubt be a pivotal era that will chart the course that this nation takes into the future. There are those who say that if we the American People make the wrong choice, the nation as we know it
We have a choice, that is whether to stay the course or change the political world 100%. As the Right would say we can choose between Liberals who would give the farm away, or the Conservatives who of course in their all-knowing wisdom would cut the deficit, cut entitlements, cut health care, and social services across the board. They would leave the middle class in a total state of limbo, and create free work states wiping out Unions as well. Of course, we can kiss Obama care good-bye. No doubt, Lower Middle Class and Middle Class people can count on a tax increase, while rich corporations get a tax break and incentives to move out of the country, just as we are finally realizing that a country that is not manufacturing something is a country distained for Depression. Why? Well it’s easy Folks, No One Is Working!
Now while I sound awful one-sided, which I am on this matter, I am not saying anything that has not already been said by the Republican Party guided by the Far Right and Tea Party Gang, who apparently plan on overthrowing the whole Republican Party. Once again, I didn’t say it…..They did! So there is nothing new here under the Sun. I am not twisting it any. I am just saying that it is what it is.
Democrats would have a moderate tax increase. On the Richest of the Rich. There might be adjustments in entitlement programs, but President Obama is not advocating the out right elimination of entitlements. He is not going to shut down Social Security. He is not going to eliminate Medicare, and Medicaid. He is readjusting the over all Medical system in this country so that we The People have access to it, and not just a chosen few. In reality, all these programs that Republicans attempt to create all out panic about are still on the examination table. If there are components that would never be accepted, they are eliminated. There have been several such revisions as we move into different segments of the Health Care Act. What works stays, it might be subject to revision. What does not work goes in the trash heap. Pay attention this process is already underway.
Romney, Santorum, and Gingrich have made it quite clear if Iran creates its nuclear capability that without hesitation they will attack Iran. That means the Republicans are itching for yet another war. That way we can continue to spend Federal dollars on tanks, bullets and guns. The Casket companies will continue to make a killing as well! Your sons and daughters will continue filling the graves. Ladies and Gentlemen, as Rush would say, the United States has made it quite clear to the whole of the Mid-East world that it is not wise to wake a sleeping giant. As a matter of fact, contemplating such a decision is at the height of stupidity. I think they got our point. If however, they did not. If however, they decide that an attack on the people of The United States of America, is a wise justifiable action, then I am sure that once again, like a resting giant the American People will rise to the challenge and this time we might not be so civil about it all.
While Republicans and Tea Party millionaires persist in blaming the past recession on the working class people, the auto workers as well as other industrial workers in this great nation, while they persist in pandering to Fanny May and Freddie Mac, and Wall St. tycoons, the Democrats are making it clear that the days of non regulation and looking the other way while the people of this nation are ripped off is over. Republicans will once again, without any hesitation hand the candy store over to the Wall St. and Rich for them to do as they please. the problem is that when it is time to pay the Bill, we will be the debtor. It sure won’t be them.
Choices and Consequences. The results of those choices will impact us all. Just remember dear voter….The grass is not necessarily greener on the other side of the fence.
And by the way I might add, it is not the Democrats who have stalled every piece of legislation in Congress. It is the Republicans. The only reason you are seeing movenment on the Infrastructure Bills, for highways, and road repair, is because the Republicans know that those dollars mean jobs, and jobs are a vital componant of any chance of their re-election!
It’s time to start thinking.
Have a great day and as usual………God Bless America!
