We the people, for the people, and by the people, this is the reason government will never be a business.
I’m a Republican and have been since the age of 16. It’s about the people, and in government people have needs, rich or poor! We’re not a business; business must turn a profit at any cost, even if it’s at the people’s expense.
Shame on us; forgetting and putting aside the essence of our humblest beginnings. It’s about the people; as is often the case, the immediate needs of the people, rich and poor alike.
I’m disenchanted as a Republican that my party is more concerned about future generations, while sacrificing the existing generation. We the people alive today, need our government to come and stand beside us the people in a time of desperate need.
How pious, and self absorbed have we become?
We attack Social Security, an earned retirement income. Solution; raise the FICA to 10 percent for employee and employer alike, cap it at $250,000 of earned income. I think if my party, yes my Republican Party, the one I’m so proud of, ran the numbers they would find we wouldn’t have a retirement problem.
I don’t call what we’ve been going through for the past four years a recession, a modest recovery, or the beginnings of another recession: It’s “A Modern Day Depression.”
If not for the social safety nets, then times would be just as bad as the “Great Depression.” My party wasn’t elected to Congress to just, cut, cut, cut.
It’s about We the People, not we the Republican Party, not we that only have the ability to cut spending, and are incapable of raising revenues, and increasing taxes.
My mother once asked me; “Would you do this to your own family and especially your children?” We’re your children, we’re not a business, we have families, problems, and needs. Yet you purposely chose not to accept our dilemma as a people, but instead sell us on the need to take care of our grandchildren.
If my party fails to take care of me and my own in the immediate future, it’s doubtful that there will be a future of any value for future generations. We’re a People: We the People, for the People, and by the People, not a business, where cutting the people out is part of the equation!
Shame, Shame, Shame ... go look in the mirror; you pious, self-absorbed Republicans who’ve lost touch with We the People.
