One of my favorite old sayings is “Anything worth having is worth fighting for.” In my book, that goes double when it comes to things like America's manufacturing infrastructure, decent paying jobs, America's social safety nets and most of all, fair representation of the bottom 98% in Washington! When we elected President Obama in 2008, I was under the impression that he would fight for OUR interests, guess I was wrong. Apparently, politics being what it is, he has other priorities like looking out for the interests of wealthy campaign supporters, something he has in common with his Republican compatriots.
Within weeks of the President's taking office, many of us began to see disturbing signs that he used us to get into office and was starting to turn his back on us. One disturbing sign was when he stated that “he's everyone's President, not just the President of those who voted for him.” Well everyone encompasses people like teabaggers and Republicans who hold views that are irreconcilable with Obama's campaign promises and his Madison Avenue slogan of “Change We Can Believe In.” While it is true that any president is “everyone's President”, that doesn't mean that he has to embrace or even consider things that are repugnant to the very working people who put him in office or differ from his own stated campaign platform. In this case, being “everyone's President" says “thanks for your vote, I owe you nothing, now get lost” to working people and Progressives.
As the months passed, the President made it clear that he was NOT going to fight for the things that we consider important:
I could go on for pages but I won't. What I will say is that this kind of compromise is almost as toxic to working people as the Republican/Tea Party agenda. As a matter of fact it's downright insideous because supporting the President in 2012 keeps us from electing someone who can and will actually help working people. Many of the President's current die hard supporters are on various social media acting as the unofficial Democratic truth police by scaring people with the old “lesser of two evils” baloney. If you run into one of those clowns, please tell them that they will only be able to see the truth if the stop burying their heads in the President's rear end.
We need to elect a truly worthy candidate in 2012, someone like Bernie Sanders.
Congratulations, you can now consider yourself aware and awakened!
Have you noticed that there's no one on Talk Radio who speaks for John and Jane Q. Public? I want to change that situation. When I go into the studio and get on the air, I say the things that you've always wanted to say. The big corporate interests have their lobbyists, I want to be your voice. Just think of me as your guy fighting for your interests.
