You gotta believe! (#2036)
It isn't the first dawning of a realization that something is about to happen for the better, it is a consistent and constant realization that it is going to happen. Now I have been totally expecting something to change that would make my life better and more happy and in the past I have been disappointed. But that isn't what I am talking about here. I am talking about our current political dysfunction that everyone knows is going on. It isn't some secret that is keeping us guessing about it's intent. We have a Democratic president in office until January 2017. So he is not going anywhere until then. So to get our political operations back under control, we must change the makeup of the other two legislative bodies. With voters realizing this, the most efficient method of change is to vote in more Democrats by voting out more Republicans. Simply put, this November can change the current process of ineffective compromise from the minority party Republicans, who control the House of Representatives, with the majority party Democrats, that still control the Senate and like I said, the Presidency. Since the majority of we voters voted in 2012 for the democratic policies outlined by our President who was re-elected then, and have not gotten the sufficient duly bound compromise to that will of the people by Republican office holders then those Republican office holders need to be voted back out. We need serious representation, not obstructive and damaging legislation aimed directly at the American working/middle/poor class. With Republicans and their tenuous hold on the House at stake, we must make Republicans pay for their determined will to only serve and represent the wealthy. I know the national media is saying that because of Republican gerrymandering after the 2010 election, the House is too difficult to take back for the Democrats, however I wholeheartedly disagree. There are enough Republican House seats in play in November that are not locked in to guaranteed victories. If we Democrats come out and vote like our future depends on it we will win the House, hold the Senate and give our President a Congress he can work with to enhance the future of our American working/middle/poor class.
