Joe gets up at 6:00am to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot full of good
clean drinking water because some liberal fought for minimum water quality standards.
He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His medications are safe
to take because some liberal fought to insure their safety and work as advertised.
All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employers medical plan because
some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance, now Joe
gets it too. He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs this day. Joe's bacon is
safe to eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing
Joe takes his morning shower reaching for his shampoo; His bottle is properly labeled
with every ingredient and the amount of its contents because some liberal fought for his
right to know what he was putting on his body and how much it contained. Joe dresses,
walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree
hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air. He walks to the
subway station for his government subsidized ride to work; it saves him considerable
money in parking and transportation fees. You see, some liberal fought for affordable
public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor.
Joe begins his work day; he has a good job with excellent pay, medicals benefits,
retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some liberal union members fought and
died for these working standards. Joe's employer pays these standards because Joe's
employer doesn't want his employees to call the union. If Joe is hurt on the job or
becomes unemployed he'll get a worker compensation or unemployment check
because some liberal didn't think he should loose his home because of his temporary
Its noon time, Joe needs to make a Bank Deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe's deposit
is federally insured by the FSLIC because some liberal wanted to protect Joe's
money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the
Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae underwritten Mortgage and his below market federal
student loan because some stupid liberal decided that Joe and the government
would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his life-time.
Joe is home from work, he plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the
country. He gets in his car for the drive to dads; his car is among the safest in the world
because some liberal fought for car safety standards. He arrives at his boyhood home. He
was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers Home Administration
because bankers didn't want to make rural loans. The house didn't have electric until
some big government liberal stuck his nose where it didn't belong and demanded
rural electrification. (Those rural Republican's would still be sitting in the dark)
He is happy to see his dad who is now retired. His dad lives on Social Security and his
union pension because some liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe
wouldn't have to. After his visit with dad he gets back in his car for the ride home.
He turns on a radio talk show, the host's keeps saying that liberals are bad and
conservatives are good. (He doesn't tell Joe that his beloved Republicans have fought
against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day) Joe agrees, "We
don't need those big government liberals ruining our lives; after all, I'm a self made man
who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have".
Obama should have said Life begins at conception---however ---women deciding to have abortion---is a desperate decision that they shouldnt have to make and get to be criminally punished later.
Why not -- focus on decreasing rates of teen age pregnancy, economic issues, education,pre-natal care, etc to drive the rates of abortion down by solving unwanted pregnancy. We need the help of religious groups too --- especially educating the moral aspects.
Clinton was able to decrease the rates of abortion but Bush was not.
Many Democrats are voting Obama because they think he is more electable than Hillary. But it is not so.
PA, OH, FL, MI, MO are blue collar or hispanic states. Obama will never win these states in the General election against McCain. Face it--Be real, it is wrong ---people just are denying it---but racism is still strong enough to deny Obama the victory in these states---coupled with Wright, Flag, those Muslim E-mails, bitter clinging remark, etc.
No matter how much money you put in these states. I hear it from CSPAN, radio talk, blogs, from non white relatives and friends ---how can they let somebody like Obama represent US? It is wrong but you cannot deny it. It is there. It is ugly but it is still a reality.
Other swings states like WI, OR, MN, IO have more sophisticated population ---they are very much pro-Obama now and very angry about the war, and Bush ---will go Hillary if she is the winner.
The bloggers dont want to talk about it because it is politically incorrect and ugly--but the reality is still there.
I really like Obama and think he will be a great president --but I like a Democrat to win the WH even more because only a Democrat can fix the problems Bush created.
