When the United States of America was still nothing more than a group of colonies controlled by the British Empire, the Crown did all that it could to make sure that it stood above the common colonists. Financially speaking, taxes were placed upon the colonists by the British in order to make sure that the rich stayed rich and the poor stayed poor. The British used no common sense in how they ruled their subjects. They simply thought,
“How can we make more money and maintain dominance over society?”
Fast forward nearly twelve score and we have the exact same situation going on. The Republicans in the United States don’t care about the middle class, much less the lower class. Republicans want to privatize everything so the elite in the United States can prosper even more. With everything from healthcare to Social Security to the military, the Republicans have at least tried to privatize every industry in the United States with only the goal of making a profit for themselves.
The greed of the Republicans has already cost us dearly. In the last 50 years, with the terrible policies of Ronald Reagan deregulating the banks and the economy, all the way to George W. Bush forcing us into a war and allowing prices of goods to skyrocket and salaries to stay still. The economy inflated due to the unintelligent policies of the Bush Administration, the economy went belly-up in 2008.
Now as President Barack Obama and the Democratic party are working hard day in and day out, the Republicans are trying to blame the economic problems on Obama. Child Please! If it was not for Obama and the Democrats, the economy would still be in a deep recession; probably a depression, and the unemployment rate would be into the late teens.
Before the Republicans, who claim to be so intelligent, blindly cast stones at Obama, maybe they should pay attention to the measures Obama has passed and implemented. The economy is in as swift of an upward turn that it can be in, all thanks to the hard work of Obama who has had to deal with Republicans trying to block and filibuster all of his bills. And for anyone who hasn’t noticed, in Congress any member can propose a new law, and Republicans have yet to propose any law that would benefit the United States in any way. That is, unless the people of the United States want to return to the policies of the Bush Administration and see if the Republicans can break their own record and get the economy even lower than in 2008.
