Republicans wanted to increase interest rates
Solar energy is cheaper, but won’t make oil companies as much money
We must work with all countries to promote peace
Due to the game of politics, many of the issues you see here are being ignored or fought by Republicans. This isn’t even all of them. We need to be a progressive nation. The Founding Fathers did not found the United States of America by being conservative. The conservatives were the Tories. These were men of vision and dreams. They stood up and decided that we didn’t need to be a colony and that we needed to be our own country. Wow. What bravery and courage to even come up with a plan of strategy. Yet they were progressive and working to design a progressive government.
Not everyone agreed. And out of the heated discussions some were named traitors. If you wanted to remain under the king, you felt that others were traitors So if you are descended from colonists who came over on the Mayflower, you might have the blood of traitors in your families. Those traitors were men of vision and saw a very different future.
We are in a similar situation now. The Republicans are mired in mud over their heads. The Republicans are fighting Obama, why? Because they are racists? Why do they want to have control over women’s health and bodies? They cut monies for food for the poor. Why? I believe that many people of wealth look down on poor people. They think they are lazy, and have what they deserved. Oh, but what about the fact that the GOP doesn’t want to pay for contraception and doesn’t want to feed the babies which are born due to this lack? I don’t think that anyone asks to be born, therefore, we need to give a helping hand. Many poor people are working but our minimum wage is so low a family can’t live on it. Do the Republicans care…no. Their voting records show us that.
The Republicans keep voting against our environment. The energy companies fund large lobbies to woo the Republicans to vote against clean energy. What about the air and water you ask? Well, it is a concern. So is all the chemicals they are putting in our food. Fracking is another issue which the GOP wants to ignore. Fracking causes more earthquakes.
We have twice now elected a man of color as President. I have seen more activity within the KKK. I believe prejudice is the real reason the Republicans are fighting every issue that would benefit the American people. They are prejudiced against making life easier for people of color, the poor, education, equal pay for equal work, the minimum wage and having clean air to breath.
There are many lies being told and there is much hatred going on in Washington. I believe if we allowed President Obama to put his progressive programs into effect, America would be a much better place to live. I love America but the anger and hatred we live with is so toxic to our world and ourselves. As the American people we have a responsibility to know what is going on in our government. To turn off the news and just focus on our lives is not being responsible.
A journalist asked a woman which health plan she had more faith in. The journalist asked the woman which plan she preferred Obamacare or the Affordable Health Care Act. She thought a moment and said she preferred the Affordable Health Care Act to Obamacare. When asked why she replied that it was too much, too confusing so she wasn’t going to get it. I will end my comments here.
