Pay No Attention To The Old Wrinkly Man Behind The Curtain


The political stunt that was the Governor of Alaska's candidacy for VP has about run its course, and not a minute too soon for my tastes. I'm not thinking for a minute that we've seen the last of the shiny things waved in the field of vision of the press. Last week it was something to do with cosmetics and livestock. This week, buried under the avalanche of the grimmest economic news in my lifetime, The McCain campaign tried to trick Hillary Clinton into appearing on the same stage as Palin. FAIL! Now the GOP is repackaging itself as the party of change. George W. Who? 

Since 1932 the Democratic Party and Progressive Liberals have slowly invented the American middle class, built the infrastructure and defended America. Since 1994 the conservatives and Republicans have waged war on the middle class, poor and creative. 

We will look at the political bathtub in six months and see the Republican high water mark. We are looking for a better, safer world without the tribal resentments and inequities that plague modern societies.

No Party or Line of thought INVENTED the middle class. Unleashing Capitalism did. Money is needed to build infrastructure & America's defense. Where did that come from? NOT from the Dem Party & Progressive Liberals, but from business & the creation of more business - ya know when people make a PROFIT, that nasty P-word & then reinvest that money into America.
Ever hear of John D. Rockefeller, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford and J.P. Morgan??? Why not turn on the History Channel for an awesome explanation on WHO REALLY BUILT the Middle Class.
It was not their intention, but a by-product of their Capitalism.
As far as your next statement on waging war on poor - that's been the Democratic story line to vilify the GOP. Conservatives understand that less government is better, more jobs are better & the best solution to make the poor NOT POOR is to get them a job.
If the poor refuses, then it's NOT the job of Government to live for them or show them.
