Our Political Parties Have Flipped

paul-ryan-funny-photoshop-upside-down-face.jpg

All through my childhood(1938-1952) my Dad told me that the Democrat Party was for the working man. He said that because during the depression President Roosevelt continuously invented new  programs to create jobs. In the process he socialized the country with some pretty huge bureaucratic agencies that we are still stuck with today.

#############################################################

The SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION (SEC) was created to serve as a watchdog on the stock market.

The FEDERAL HOUSING AUTHORITY (FHA) provided low interest loans for new home construction. The HOME OWNERS LOAN CORPORATION (HOLC) allowed homeowners to refinance mortgages to prevent foreclosure or to make home improvements.

The UNITED STATES HOUSING AUTHORITY (USHA) initiated the idea of government-owned low-income housing projects.

The PUBLIC WORKS ADMINISTRATION (PWA) created thousands of jobs by authorizing the building of roads, bridges, and dams.

The NATIONAL YOUTH ADMINISTRATION (NYA) provided college students with work-study jobs.

The NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD (NLRB) was designed to protect the right of collective bargaining and to serve as a liaison between deadlock industrial and labor organizations.

########################################################

My Dad wouldn’t let go of the line that Roosevelt is for the working people. As I listened to Donald Trump’s acceptance speech this week Dad’s words kept rolling through my mind. There was a part of Trump’s speech that sounded more Democratic than Republican. Here are a few excerpts:

“I have a different vision for our workers. It begins with a new, fair trade policy that protects our jobs  . . .”

“I am going to bring our jobs back our jobs to Ohio and Pennsylvania and New York and Michigan and all of America and I am not going to let companies move to other countries, firing their employees along the way, without consequences.. . . ”

“I pledge to never sign any trade agreement that hurts our workers . . .”

“My opponent, on the other hand, wants to put the great miners and steelworkers of our country out of work and out of business. That will never happen with Donald J Trump as president. Our steelworkers and are miners are going back to work again.”

These quotes sure sound a little democratic to me.

“So what?” I asked myself, so he is for the working people. At this point in time, he is dead right. America has lost millions of jobs to China, Mexico, Costa Rica, Singapore, Viet Nam, South Korea, Japan. You name any country, and most likely we have exported jobs there. This has resulted in the largest re-distribution of wealth in the history of the world, that is until Obama started. All of the wealth has come from the middle class.  Why did we give all those jobs away? It was because of high labor costs.  In my  opinion it was the result of labor unions refusing to understand the need for business to profit. They became too greedy, and obnoxious during their negotiations.

Lately, all I hear about is how Hillary is taking big money for her speeches which she delivers to countries, banks, and big businesses. She won’t even release the transcripts of her speeches so we the little guy can learn from her high priced wisdom. In years past, the Republicans were always the ones who supported big business.

What has happened to the political parties in our country? They seem to have flipped in their philosophies. With the middle class shrunk to near zero, the democrats had to re-invent themselves in order to survive. Bill Clinton has set an example that I’m sure Obama will follow. Clinton invented a money laundering scheme which he calls a charity, and is living higher than he did as president.  Thankfully, Trump has solidly embraced the working man over the lobbiest-world of campaign contributions.

We the people have finally recognized this phenomenon, and are in the process of correcting it. On the other hand the democrats have learned to love the benefits of really big money coming their way. They are no longer satisfied with We the People except for their votes. As soon as they are elected they forget all about the little guy. While  Republicans have always supported the money, they seem to be drunk on campaign contributions and a super easy job as Senator or Congressman. They also forget about us after we elect them.

What we need is a clean slate filled with honest people who want to serve the country. The Constitution won’t allow us a clean sweep. By design the Founders deliberately set up the system to enable a smooth flow of government without an overload of new talent that could endanger the country. What they failed to realize is that the Congress would make their positions a career and that there is an overload of people who have been in office much too long. A Congressional Convention will be necessary to revise the Constitution to add term limits. If the US Congress is anything like the Illinois House they will reject term limits every time it comes up. Why would they vote on a proposal to lose a high paid cushy job?

So what do we do next? Let me know your ideas in the comment section below.

  1. Talk about upside down: Joe McCarthy devoted his much denigrated career to assuring the nation that communists would not be working in Hollywood. Now you can’t work in Hollywood unless you ARE a communist.

    • Much the same Hollywood that deplored McCarthy, probably because he had them on his hit list of commies.

      • C’mon, Donald!! Give us…and the Demmunists…a 10′ bronze statue of Joe McCarthy (elephant button on his lapel)
        captioned “You were right, Joe…those on the Left ARE out to destroy our Constitution. The nation apologizes.” and plant it where Congresspeople enter the capital….big, televised ceremony….military band followed by 10,000 troops in formation….

  2. I collect FDR stuff. Have 18 mantle clocks from 1933, some banners, newspapers his elections and death, war declared, portraits, magazine covers, and of course buttons. Even though I’m republican(Lord who knows what that means anymore) the man was a New Yorker so he and the Yankees get my vote.

  3. “Why would they vote on a proposal to lose a high paid cushy job?” to me is a big part of the problem. In all of the democratic world. Eventually, people are trying to get power for the purpose of their own sustenance and propagation. And running government like a business corporation. Perhaps we should have a rule that says “Contest elections if you are willing to become a pauper and live like one thereafter. Now, does anyone still want to do good for the people and society?”.

The Dangers of Allah

Confused about Islam, Muslims, Taqiyya, Kitman, The Islamic State, and Sharia? I've spent 14 years studying these confused beings.  They are not at all what they want us to believe, especially those who are ruled by al Qaeda , ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood as well as those who commit overt and covert Jihad while practicing Sharia tortures upon women

“ The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility. ” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
