On Where We Are, Nationally and Politically
I see so many times online, people saying, the Republicans or the Right Wing or the wealthy just want to wreck the nation or economy.
They're merely trying to support their own political party.
The fact is, they're putting their party first, nation be damned. They'll deny that, sure, but they're scared as hell of Barack Obama becoming the next FDR and thereby setting up for the next, say, 40 years of Democratic control of government.
The natural outgrowth of that is gerrymandering votes and Jim Crow-like voter ID laws and buying every election they can and not writing, proposing or passing any such infrastructure/jobs bill because the LAST thing they want is a roaring, successful economy. At least they don't want it and don't want to allow it unless or until one of their own, a Republican, is back in the White House.
So screw you, America. You have to wait.
And not enough people are on to their game to call them out on it. And Democrats aren't wise or tough enough, or whatever to do so.
So here we are.
