REPUBLICANS VS. DEMOCRATS
Republicans are those loud fat rats while Democrats yell like some lean screaming cats. Both sides are always on the attack. Politicians are sweet as honey trying to get our tax money. Republicans and Democrats lead our nation by delegation. They love gala events and celebrations. Give them a crowd and they’ll shout their issues out loud. Candidates campaign to attain fame and the presidential name. It ís nothing but one big political game. As election time grows near crowds cheer and watch debate after debate on who will be selected as the presidential candidate. Politicians defend their positions hoping to gain public recognition. Each candidate makes all kinds of promises and concessions in order to get their name into the presidential election. Once voted into office a President becomes the boss over the masses and runs our armed forces.
Is the Democrat’s plan on universal health care for every American fair-and-square? Republicans want to reform the tax code so more health care dollars go into taxpayers’ wallets. Most Americans are aware that 45 million people including illegal aliens do not have health insurance and therefore cannot afford the best medical care. Many individuals and families have to rely on the government’s Medicaid to survive. Seniors pay their share to Medicare as premiums and deductibles are raised each year. The elderly on fixed incomes pay a monthly drug fee and the prescriptions are not free. This hefty co-pay takes money away from seniors that have saved for a rainy day. Blame our elected officials on Capitol Hill that seniors pay steep drug bills. Politicians hem and haw while seniors are left with these Medicare flaws.

The job stimulus package never worked for over 10 million people are still out of work with no perks. Pensions are a thing of the past. Workers worry that their jobs won’t last. Everyone wonders how many companies and banks will go under. There’s a lot of political clout behind the $787 billion recently revised $814 billion economic stimulus bailout. Taxpayers shout for they have their doubts. Who knows how much tax dough all of us will have to pay through the nose. It’s no surprise that the deficit continues to rise. Politicians play the blame game. Shame on them to think they can pull the wool over our eyes with a trail of lies. The inexcusable greedy sneaky cheats of Wall Street. They have become big fat cows while investors need a crying towel. The government should officially order the ousted CEOs of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac return a portion of their million dollar salaries to go right back into the taxpayers’ lap. Let us not appease the Wall Street thieves, AIG and every CEO on the fat payroll.

The economy remains in a slump, workers are still getting dumped, pump prices jump, gold soars as dollar falls while housing prices are rising. Will Americans see an energy policy on solar, wind power and oil drilling? Our government has to stop buying oil from Middle Eastern countries. We are now a nation of service industry workers as major manufacturing has gone overseas. America needs to reform its foreign policy to benefit the people of this country. The complexity of nuclear war is upon us more and more. Look at the World Trade Center and Pentagon devastation. Is Homeland Security doing their best to protect our nation? Let us pray that these fanatical terrorists do not cause our ruination. Americans have to stand up and fight for their rights.
