Funny story people were chatting about today. A lady, and I won't say her name, made a comment about supporting the repubs because they are the ones who can really get things done. Everyone's jaws dropped when she said this.
So I asked her, "What do you think they will do differently that will help you?" Now I usually won't encourage talk about politics or religion, but curiosity killed the cat, I guess. I think I'm gonna need a break after this one...
She paused for a sec and then mustered up the courage to say, "They are going to lower taxes." She said this with a straight face so I took it that maybe she wasn't joking. I just can't believe that after how cocky they have been lately with racist views and holding the country back, that anyone could think this. I'm talking about educated people here. You see, they do plan to lower the taxes, but this is for a small percentage of Americans, and doesn't include you. I even try to tell some people that even if you are making above a certain amount, you are not really going to benefit by the republicans being in power.
Besides you have to think about the republicans lately. You have to think about the content of the news that they control (FOX News). Republicans aren't the most honest people. They lie and twist stories and Fox News television station has a big reputation for not telling the truth or twisting it around. Do we actually want these people controlling our government, that already has disappointed so many people?
And even if you hate having president Obama as the president, you have to admit - I know you have to trust him a lot more than you did that Bush guy. The way politics are right now, I don't even blame republicans for not being republican. LMAO
Besides, I think that even those who hate President Obama don't understand his limited power. Blame people who don't vote for not exercising their power. That power is being taken away from them piecemeal. Though we have a democratic president, our society is ran and controlled by republicans right now. Republicans who are refusing to work with president Obama.
If you really want to help make things better, vote democratic all the way across the board. Because the people who are going to run against Obama are some very scary people - People that we do not want running our government. Trust me on this. Because if the republicans stay in power, watch out!
