Will America Recover Under Republicans? Probably Not
With the November election just around the corner, Republicans and conservatives around the country are licking their chops thanks to bumbling Democrats. The prevailing thought, even amongst liberal mignons, is the party of healthcare reform and higher taxes is about to get its clock cleaned.
We hear it’s going to be a blood bath.
But does that mean the Republicans who might take over both the House and Senate are going to do better than the Harry Reids or Nancy Pelosis of the political world? Not necessarily.
Despite the utter failure of both the Obama administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress, what’s to say Republicans will do any better? What have they done over the past 10 years that would give us confidence that might happen?
Therein lies the problem. What we have in Washington is a complete failure of our elected officials to do what we entrusted them to do. They are the “haves” and we are the “have-nots.” They no longer listen, or even care to pretend, to listen to their constituents. This corruption of democrat power is what is responsible for where we are today. Lawmakers on both sides allowed the housing bubble to build and burst. They allowed companies like AIG and GM to rape and steal from the American taxpayers with no benefit to you and I.
This is the exact reason why the Tea Party Movement gained such popularity over the past two years. This popularity grew in spite of a liberal media, and even a large portion of the conservative media, dismissing it as “fringe” movement. Even though I am not a Tea Party activist, I do support its underlying theme: we’re tired of our elected officials ignoring the will of the people.
The election of 2010 will show once and for all just how sick we all are. If Republicans do put up major gains, it won’t because they have better ideas. Even though they might stop some of Obama’s radical agenda, I’ve heard very few Republicans with any new ideas. The recent Republican “plan” to save America was so idiotic, Ronald Reagan rolled over in his grave. It was nothing close to what Newt Gingrich did in 1994 with the Contract for America. It was full of empty promises and political double-speak.Continued on the next page
