You are right on the money my friend!
I agree with you.
But why did Obama continued 90% of all Bush/Cheney policies.
Obama reneged on all the big ticket items he promised.
Obama passed a Republican health care bill with not ONE Republican voting for it.
Single Payer "Medicare for All" was off the Obama table.

Compare the 1912 Elections with the 2012 Elections
January 1, 2013 / http://tinyurl.com/b7bvdce
Before the electoral year of 2012 slinks into history, it is worth a comparative glance back to the electoral year of 1912 to give us some jolting perspective on how degraded our contemporary elections, voter performance and election expectations have become.
One hundred years ago, workers were marching, picketing and forming unions. Eugene Debs, the great labor leader and presidential candidate that year, spoke to outdoor labor rallies of 100,000 to 200,000 workers and their families gathered to protest low wages and working conditions.
Farmers were flexing their muscle with vibrant political activity in progressive parties and organizing farm cooperatives, through their granges, and pushing for proper regulation of the banks and railroads.
On the presidential ballot were Republican incumbent William Howard Taft, Democrat Woodrow Wilson, and the Progressive “Bull Moose” Party’s choice former president Theodore Roosevelt. Taft would be repudiated for being far too populist and too critical of corporations by today’s Republican Party. He favored national, not state, charters for “national corporations.”
The Democrats were committed to their platform of 1908 which asked “Shall the people rule? Is the overshadowing issue which manifests itself in all the questions now under discussion.” The context was shaped by the giant corporations (“called the trusts”) and their lobbies in Washington, which had to be curbed. The Supreme Court in 1911 had just ruled to break up the giant Standard Oil trust.
Women’s suffrage, abolition of child labor, workers’ compensation; states adopting the initiative, referendum, and recall; the eight-hour work day, minimum wage laws (Massachusetts was the first in 1912), taxing corporate profits and the “inheritance of fortunes,” were some of the many hot issues of 1912.
Taft, Wilson and Roosevelt fought over who was the most progressive. Theodore Roosevelt in an August 1912 speech declared that “Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.”/ http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/01/01-1...
Obama doesnt live up to what the people need and want. Unlike the republican party who stands by the corporations and the rich the democrats just give lip service to the people. They do more to stand with the working class and poor, but falls short of telling the rich to get off the bus. They follow the money just the same. What I dont understand is that 2% of the people control over 60% of the wealth, and yet these republicans complain about jobs as if the government or the workers have any control over it. I believe that over 30 years of tax breaks for the rich as well as them paying low wages to workers is to blame for our economy. You have to have a balance where the people have money to spend, and then they can afford to buy wants and not just needs. People spending money drives demand. No matter a corporations tax rate if they can provide goods or services for a profit they will. Its a fact that many roads and bridges are in disrepair, and need fixed. No corporation will do this without somehow geting a profit from it. Jobs like this are government jobs. The rich control both parties. Yes Obama to!

The fact is that this 6 trillion you speak of is not right. Obama has only 1.4 trillion in new spending. The rest is from all the spending bills under Bush that still have to be paid today. Bush passed a record number of spending bills. When he took office he had a balanced budget as well as a surplus. Funny how you want history to be rewritten. Your last statement proves whats behind your lies. You hate "the black man" in office. Your words not mine.

You are 100% correct.

The sad truth is the Democrats sold us out and just give lip service.

Republicans sold out the masses long ago but talk a good game in collusion with all their minions in corporate rightwing radio and TV.

The talking air heads laugh all the way to the bank with their $Million dollar contracts.

The only time a politician can tell the truth is when they are out of office and not in a lobbying job on K-Street.

Can You Afford To Retire? Video / http://tinyurl.com/h8xdx
The baby boomer generation is headed for a shock as it hits retirement: many of them will be long on life expectancy but short on savings. The two main strategies for funding retirement -- lifetime pensions and 401(k)-style savings plans -- are in serious trouble. In "Can You Afford to Retire?" FRONTLINE correspondent Hedrick Smith ("Is Wal-Mart Good for America?") investigates this looming financial crisis and the outlook for middle-class Americans.(more)»

They're All Against Jobs
by Retired Senator Fritz Hollings / December 20, 2009 / http://tinyurl.com/ydr27ze
Who is against jobs in the United States? The big banks, Wall Street, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Business Roundtable, the United States Chamber of Commerce, the National Retail Federation, Corporate America, the President of the United States, Congress of the United States. Everyone is crying for jobs, but no one seems to understand why there aren't any. And the reason for those opposing jobs is money.
Beginning in 1973, big banks made most of their profit outside of the United States. Industries off-shoring, investing, banks financing the investments, transfer fees, fees and interest on the loans made for bigger profits. Long since, the big banks under the leadership of David Rockefeller have led the way to off-shore and make a bigger profit. Goldman Sachs, AIG, Citicorp and Wall Street, conspiring for a bailout and now using it for bonuses, make more money from the off-shored operations.

--Louis Brandeis Supreme Court Justice 1941

"The two greatest obstacles to democracy in the United States are, first, the widespread delusion among the poor that we have a democracy, and second, the chronic terror among the rich, lest we get it."
--Edward Dowling

Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.
