First I would like to address the chart to the left. As you can see, everyone in this country does better financially under Democrats than under Republicans. Everyone. The question now is: Why do the super-rich, who also do better under Democratic policies, want Republican policies? Because it isn’t about making more money, it is about greed. It isn’t that they want more money, because they would have that under Democrats, it is about having ALL of the money. They don’t want MORE money, they want YOUR money. That is what greed is all about.
Now we have all the evidence we need to see that Republicans’ economic policies are bad for this country. The Republican Party has been running for years saying they know how to run the economy better than the Democrats. We now have proof that they have been lying about this for years. The economy as a whole also does better under Democrats, and ALL of the American people do better under Democrats.
So, why would you elect a Republican? They aren’t good with the economy, they aren’t good at foreign policy, (Iraq, Afghanistan, and it took a Democrat to get Osama bin Laden), they want to get rid of the social safety net, so what is left? Abortion and contraceptives. If those two issues are more important than whether you can feed your family or not, or whether we are killing people in a foreign land for no reason other than Cheney got a boner when he thought of all of that oil: Vote Republican. If you care about this country and the people in it, you have no choice but to vote Democratic, because they ARE the party that cares more about the average person.
The illusion that was built around the Republican Party is being stripped away slowly but surely and everyone is getting to see the ugly truth underneath: Republican cannot govern. Not even a tiny little bit.
There are only two reasons that I can see for ANYONE to vote for a Republican: The person is a racist, or an idiot. If there is a better reason, please, let me know.
“While Republicans promote themselves as the friendliest party for Wall Street, stock investors do better when Democrats occupy the White House. From a dollars- and-cents standpoint, it’s not even close.
The BGOV Barometer shows that, over the five decades since John F. Kennedy was inaugurated, $1,000 invested in a hypothetical fund that tracks the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index (SPX) only when Democrats are in the White House would have been worth $10,920 at the close of trading yesterday.
That’s more than nine times the dollar return an investor would have realized from following a similar strategy during Republican administrations. A $1,000 stake invested in a fund that followed the S&P 500 under Republican presidents, starting with Richard Nixon, would have grown to $2,087 on the day George W. Bush left office.”
