We do have something to sell on the world market and still keep our manufacturing jobs. This morning I heard that the Chinese market for American cars has risen a significant amount. If we have a glut there is a way to sell those cars to the Chinese without selling out the US automarket. And? It will also help to promote responsible environmental measures directly to the Chinese citizen.
I know that Southern Democrats can be conservative but during the primary I met folks who were going to vote for Obama that would have been thought surprising. I was wondering if this is the resurection of the older Democrat. I'm sorry it's sureal to talk to folks.
For instance, while nationally the votes Republican, state wide they go Democrat. In Alabama, Artur Davis is running for Governor. Maybe against Big Jim Folsom's son.
I'm watching patterns here. Trying to understand trending.
WashStateBlue. I'm curious.
You don't think that if it fails that the Republicans in the Senate will say, "We told you that this won't work and that's why we didn't vote for it."
Look I hear alot about bipartisanship, but if your are trying to resolve a contact between two rival groups. And if there is big emotional componant, isn't it important to have a clear definition of just what is wrong. And yest get a consensus.
Or go directly to the voter.
My understanding was that was what President Clinton did. He made speeches and then watched the polls. Completely bipassed the Legislative branch.
Now it is ideology on bothsides. You can really hear it in speaches and interviews.
I keep waiting to hear who gets custody of the dog and the couch.
Do you think that we are in a depression obama4presidente?
Thing is that taxes aren't consumer driven. You can't sit April 15th out if you are short that month. Not like you can wait out buying something else. Then when it's spent on a social program for someone who's not working? It can make folks resentful. Especially if there are other bills due.
It's difficult to get folks to see that giving aid to someone with federal taxe dollars when you're struggling to pay your own bills is a good thing. You might but not everyone does.
Good to meet you.
(I'm not arguing with you I'm curious what you think.) You too, Washington State.
Just a thought as a mom who's voted with kid in tow. This year will be so busy at a lot of polls and I keep hearing there will be long lines. If you find yourself in line with a cranky preschooler? Please be patient. Having juggled kid and voting? It takes a bit longer. Also I've never met a smiling person who I didn't like. Sometimes just a kind and soft "hey ya" can be a life saver. If I had a nickel for every person who has talked to my kid and got him to smile? Well there is a special place in my heart for these folks.
Oh and the game Peep eye? It is still very much in fashion. So is whistling softly for some reason. Or if you see a kid with a "I voted" sticker or campaign button it really is cool to be asked about it. Very grown up thing.
Good luck to parents, relatives, and friends who are sharing the vote with kids. It really does make a good impression and a future voter.
