The problem in this thread is the sheer partisanship of a few on the left. Do you REALLY believe the "Right" hates consumers and the "Left" is really looking out for you? That THAT is how the world works?

That's, kinda sad really.

There is a difference between the rights "hating" consumers, something I don't advocate, and the right "forgetting" consumers, something I witness everyday.

No one is saying that the left is perfect, but anything is better than openly trying to ship our production base internationally and subject our workers to nothing more than a service economy.

You get the respect you give. And if you're a Republican, you b*tch about paybacks being a b*tch. So sorry you're mad your guy is getting the respect you gave ours, Snowflakes.

If you haven't seen this one yet, you've gotta see it.

iowahawk: BELTWAY ADVENTURE

It's from quirky right wing, humorist, blogger, Iowahawk.

Remember those old compute text games from the early days of floppy disks? He creates one on Washington politics since Obama took office, and plays it as if he's The One.

It connects to this thread. I promise.

No matter who wins they better learn to put partisanship aside and do something to further us toward a more prosperous outlook.
I know that's a lot to hope for in light of the aggressiveness of the campaigns this season, but I'm a dreamer, I guess.

Did you ever stop to think how different things would be right now if the Republicans actually could have gridlocked government the way they've been accused of?

How bad would things be really? Even if they could have been able to stop everything. No Obamacare. No Cap and Trade passing through the house, and waiting to be snuck through in a lame duck session. In fact, no lame duck fears. No Stimuli (OK, I Palined that word a bit. Sue me). No auto bailouts. The Czars would be gone. The EPA would have been, if not neutered, at least slowed down a little.

How bad would things be? I mean really. Maybe there's periods in history when gridlock gets a bad rap.

Notice they or no one attempted to wade thru that 2000 page health care bill. Now, as a result, we still don't have a whole lot of clues as to just what all is in that thing. But hey, the dems didn't give a crapola anyway and just went ahead and shoved that thing thru.... Just goes to show you that they didn't give a crapola about what the people thought. They just wanted it regardless. I suspect they will be paying a price for that.

Goodness, that would require them to work together for a common cause. They would actually have to put their personal feelings aside. Not only that, they'd have to stop playing the blame game or trying to make the other side look bad.

It would also be grand if the powers that be weren't trying to shift America into becoming something she isn't, which is a socialist country.

But hey, that's just too much to hope for. Sooo.... I guess we, the people, will have to decide for ourselves just how powerful we really can be when we put out minds to it.

Why do businesses move their business overseas? To stay competitive. Why would they do that? Let's see what are some of the top outside costs on manufacturing...

1. Taxes (That's generally a Dem thing)
2. Regulations (Again a DEM thing)
3. Unions (Wait for... Dem thing.)

Gee, how is it the Right pushes business out of the country again?
