Absolutely! I am a Franklin Roosevelt type of Democrat. Not the modern type who sell out to every special interest group that walks up! Roosevelt wanted to help Americans recover from the depression by giving them a shovel and having them do some work for a paycheck. Nowadays people receive their government benefits direct deposited and are never ask to pitch in at all! I would love to bring this party back to its' roots!
Many politicians have accepted the fact that we must always shovel a lot of money to special interests before we get to help one American.
Aren't they the ones who lost to Trump? They didn't lose to Rubio or Bush. They lost to Trump!
They didn't let the people of the party choose. They simply got out of touch with the ordinary people on the streets, who as we found out, make the decisions!.
The leadership has sold out to so many special interest and keep trying to convince us that an open border is a great idea. They won't admit that any criminal elements are getting through. They may not experience that in a gated subdivision in the bay area but in SOCAL we sure do feel it! They will never explain how treating Mexicans better than people from all of the other countries is not racism! I think that is the definition of racism! But they have sold out to big business who want a flood of cheap labor. Flooding the country with cheap labor is why wages have been stagnant for 20 plus years.
Well it wasn't what I was told in 2008. I heard public option. The federal government was going to write an insurance policy. Even though we had the House, Senate and the White house, we still managed to listen to health insurance companies who didn't like the idea of government being a competitor. Then the pharmaceuticals got on board and there you go! We got a crappy healthcare plan that is way too expensive and only convinces Americans that we need to see the doctor more frequently and become addicted to opioids! Well, usually after you take peoples jobs and livelihood you will need to keep them heavily sedated. That's why the crisis is worse in former industrial cities.
I cannot say anything good about his personality at all! We Americans have watched him for 40 years or more. He was a rich, spoiled kid who is a product of our "reality" tv nowadays where all we do is ridicule people, yell at one another and call each other names. We got the reality star that we deserve!
That does not mean we should throw out his ideas. Regarding the jobs that got shipped from the midwest since way back in 70's, he is correct. Those midwesterners are hurting! And our African American community was probably hit harder proportionally than those whites out there (in cities like St. Louis, Detroit, Indianapolis). They had just began working their way into the well paying factories and boom....the jobs are gone! I never heard Democrats even mention that. They keep telling us about how great free trade is for us. No wonder huh? These establishment Democrats agree with the establishment Republicans on that issue. Both parties oversaw the transfer of our good paying jobs, the opening of our border and the continued wars and military spending.
Remember people, Trump was hated by all republicans when he was in the primaries. This was because the Dems and Reps agree on leaving a 16 year war going, leaving a border open, never balancing a budget and leaving our manufacturing overseas! That's why I sound like a Trump guy. I am the Democrat version of Trump: more polite, more inclusive, less hateful and much more open minded, but not afraid to speak out to our party leadership to correct the path that this party is currently following.
I think America would be much better off if we began bringing back some of the "loving spirit" of the 70's. That hippie culture had us dreaming about what we could do as a group. I fear that we have lost that loving feeling. Marijuana, as our founding fathers grew and smoked, should not be illegal. And now that we can give a man a boost with a simple pill, why do we allow pharmaceutical companies to charge $40 per pill and those pills are not covered by insurance or medicare? Let's get the generic version on the shelf with no prescription! Remember, for every man who takes a blue pill there should be one more lady (or another guy) who is a bit happier too!
If you would like to be part of some major changes in our government please send money! This money will only be used to help me win this race in the 39th district of California. It doesn't matter where you live. If you like what you hear then please give!
I am doing all of this while still supporting myself as a self employed building contractor. Please send me a few bucks to help me keep the site and the movement going!
