It is "I" or "We" never the greater good of mankind or for all the people.

"We needed to have the press be our friend ... We wanted them to ask the questions we want to answer so that they report the news the way we want it to be reported."
~Sharron Angle, during an interview with Fox News Channel's Carl Cameron, Aug. 2, 2010

The Right screams and rails and attacks but never proposes anything that is for the greater good. It is "I" or "We" never the greater good of mankind or for all the people. It is shorted sighted and selfish. Liberal progressive policies don't seek self aggrandizement but seek the greater good of all mankind.

Liberal progressive policies seek to improve the lives of all Americans not the privileged few. Their policies are designed to protect the many from the few, the greedy the powerful and the privileged, so that all Americans can enjoy the dream of America.

The power of the corporations seek to over ride the rights of all Americans. They are spending billions of dollars to brain wash the American public into voting against their own self interest. The corporate interests want to privatize social security and there by destroy the safety net for all Americans. They want to eliminate the Obama health reforms thereby improving the bottom line of the health insurance industry while depriving the American public of the health care that they deserve.

The powers that be want to deprive Americans of all the protections the constitution provides and create for themselves a slave society while they destroy the middle class.

Is the Tea Party in touch with reality? I don't think so. They are about protecting some perceived white man control of America. They have simplified the issues. They spout FOX NEWS sound bites but they have no real answers. Are the Democrats the way to go? Maybe not, but they are better they the alternative. The country is beginning to recover and it has been a long hard struggle. The Democrats didn't create the problems America faces, they inherited it and have worked damn hard to correct it. We need to give them a chance to get the job completed. If we turn the country over to the Conservatives regardless of what they call themselves it will be a giant step backwards and all Americans will be the worst for it.
