Taking Back America

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

With last week’s election the American people took the second step in taking back America. The first step was two years ago when they sent even more Republicans to the House of Representatives hoping that the message would be received and some changes made.  There were no changes and things actually got worse. The progressive programs and blatant actions by this administration have been just too much to handle.

Crises after crises have been hitting the administration with nothing done to solve them. Some were swept under the rug, others were ignored and others were just lied about. We had such hope for our first black President and the hope and change he would bring. Now the hope is gone. His black supporters have lost ground during his term, having the highest unemployment rate of any group. All Americans living standards have declined even with the government telling us it was getting better. The change was not what we expected; many believed it would be an opening of government and more freedoms, instead just more secrets and less freedoms.

This time the people spoke again and the outcry was deafening. The people have voted to send more Republicans to the Senate which will give them control. Voters have discovered things are not getting better no matter what the administration says. The intercity schools are no better despite millions and millions of dollars poured into them. Unemployment is still very high despite what the Department of Labor phony statistics show and we all know it. Many businesses are not growing they are shrinking. Incredible amounts of money have been spent on welfare but things don’t get better, they get worse because people get used to living on hand outs.

To fix the schools we need to sharply limit the power to teacher unions. We need to hold teachers and administrators responsible for performance of their students. When children don’t learn, it’s because their teachers don’t teach them correctly according to the student’s skills and needs. When I hear people say that the parents don’t get involved, do you think it’s because the schools don’t listen to them.  People go to meetings and everyone nods and smiles but nothing changes, people just stop coming. What ever happen to the PTA?

There has been no or very little improvement in the number of people employed but the government removes enough people from the unemployed list so the numbers continually get smaller. The only jobs that are created are government or entry level. If they keep on with removing people from the unemployed list they will eventually get to zero, wouldn’t that be great. Companies are going overseas to places that don’t have all the red tape and harassment that we have here. Again unions are a big part of this, demanding $25 an hour for an $18 an hour job. Think about it, why would any business pay more for a job if you can get it done for far less somewhere else? High taxes hurt our economy because companies don’t bring home money which would then be spent here.

Wages are not going up and they may even go down some with the influx of cheap labor from the illegals if the President allows them to have work permits. Think of all the entry levels jobs that will be sucked up by these people who will send much of the money they make back to their home countries, although we will support many of them and/or their childern with our welfare programs.

Now at least congress can pass bills and send them to the President to fix some of these things. If he tries to let all the illegals work many of our citizens will not find work and be confined to welfare themselves. Congress may be able to hold the line but this is where the Republicans will win or lose the next election.

  1. Yes, lets discuss that 2012 “win” of House seats by Republicans. Did the “people speak”? Was it the “will of the people”? Absolutely NOT. It was dirty politics. Extreme Gerrymandering by Republicans elected in 2010 designed safer partisan districts and allowed Republicans to maintain their House majority in 2012 — even as they lost the presidential race by about 5 million votes and even as nationwide, Democratic House candidates combined to win about 1.4 million MORE votes OF THE PEOPLE than Republicans, according to data compiled by Bloomberg News. HMMMMM.. will of the people?…not even close!

    The 2012 results show how Republicans gerrymandered congressional lines to produce favorable outcomes even in states that lean Democratic.
    In 2012, Republicans won a lopsided majority of seats despite securing only 48 percent of the vote, about the same vote share as Democrats this year. To keep the House in 2014, Republicans needed only 45 percent of votes. To win a majority of 218 House seats it is projected that Democratic candidates would need to win ten million more votes than Republicans. Fair elections/ Will of the people? Nope – Republican politicians doing “whatever it takes” to win, at any cost.

    In the recent election of 2014 Republicans got 57% of the available House Seats but only got 52% of the actual votes cast by people.
    Crisis after Crisis? 63 Straight months of economic expansion after inheriting the Bush Recession! Annual deficit reduced by two thirds! Stock Market at record highs! Gasoline under $3 per gallon! Unemployment from 10.2 % down to 5.9%. Two women on Supreme Court! Bin Laden DEAD! GM alive! Healthcare law that is working and the increases in healthcare costs GOING DOWN for the first time in decades! Those don’t seem like crisis. The “crisis” you talk about are largely inventions of the right. Ebola crisis? No cases in US for over 21 days. Seems pretty under control! Immigration crisis? Net migration is OUTWARD! ISIS? Only became a problem AFTER stupid invasion of IRAQ (who did NOT attack us!) and Bush messing in foreign religious war.
    The biggest crisis facing the US is the dishonesty allowed in our electoral process by disingenuous rigging of our elections by gerrymandering and the Republican appointed Supreme Court allowing big business to buy our elections. Let’s fix those!

    Thank you JohninNV. You took the words right out of my mouth.

    Always two sides to the political process, mainly party hype. As far as the will of the people, I agree it was not. Not because of dirty politics, corporate money flowing to candidates or even the Supreme Court. When less than half of the eligible voters actually vote, there is no will of the people. Forget all the mud slinging, dirty politics, gerrymandering etc. Apathy is the biggest danger to a democratic society.
