Liberal/Progressives received ZERO with Obama and his corporate centrist Democrats.Rogue Scholar 05 wrote:
Oh, You and Obama are both socialists. But you are upset that Obama is not moving fast enough to take over our country.
Sooo, do you know how much the average family farm is worth these days?
And that money had already been taxed once before so why would you want to tax it a second time? I know, you are f-ing greedy!
Single Payer Medicare For All and buying Medications in bulk just like the United States Military would have lowered the costs and much more citizens covered.
Single Payer Health Care was even OFF The Table with a Democratic House and a Democratic Senate.
Proving the liberals have ZERO power in Congress.
Our country has been taken over a long time ago when the pendulum starting swinging the other way towards the wealthy with 12 years of Reagan/Bush, 8 years of Clinton/Gore, 8 years of Bush/Cheney and now with Obama/Biden.
In 2016 Jeb Bush vs Hillary Clinton!
Back to the 1880s
This is not the first time that America has looked as if it was about to succumb to what might be termed the British temptation. America witnessed a similar widening of the income gap in the Gilded Age. It also witnessed the formation of a British-style ruling class. The robber barons of the late 19th century sent their children to private boarding schools and made sure that they married the daughters of the old elite, preferably from across the Atlantic. Politics fell into the hands of the members of a limited circle—so much so that the Senate was known as the millionaires' club.
Yet the late 19th and early 20th centuries saw a concerted attempt to prevent America from degenerating into a class-based society. Progressive politicians improved state education. Philanthropists—many of them the robber barons reborn in new guise—tried to provide ladders to help the lads-o'-parts (Andrew Carnegie poured millions into free libraries). Such reforms were motivated partly out of a desire to do good works and partly out of a real fear of the implications of class-based society. Teddy Roosevelt advocated an inheritance tax because he thought that huge inherited fortunes would ruin the character of the republic. James Conant, the president of Harvard in 1933-53, advocated radical educational reform—particularly the transformation of his own university into a meritocracy—in order to prevent America from producing an aristocracy.
Propaganda is to democracy what violence is to dictatorship.
Ignorant masses who have to be marginalized for their own good.
In the twentieth century it was the Liberal Progressive Era that benefited most Americans.
The New Deal, The Fair Deal, The GI Bill, and the Great Society.
Bush Republicans are antidemocratic with an attraction to authoritarianism.
Liberals are always trying to enfranchise citizens and Bush Republicans always try to block some citizens from voting.( BLACKS & Latinos )!
Liberals defend the Constitution and long standing institutions like Social Security and Medicare.
Bush Republicans want the USA to go back to the Gilded Age and privatize Social Security and undo “The New Deal”!
