“Are You Better Off Now Than You Were Four Years Ago?” 0

Republicans keep asking that question.

At the Bangor Daily News, Michael Avery Sr. responds:

My answer to that is definitely a big yes. I am no longer subjected to seeing trucks being used as temporary morgues because the death rate from COVID-19 was overwhelming hospitals and morgues.

Today’s Republican Party is a vile and loathsome thing. Nelson Rockefeller, Dwight Eisenhower, and even Barry Goldwater must be turning over in their graves.

Have you noticed that, when someone is actually found to have voted illegally, that someone almost always voted Republican?

The Voter Fraud Fraudsters 0

Writing at the Arizona Republic, E. J. Montini takes issue with a fake elector who is trying to claim that he did nothing wrong. A snippet (emphasis added):

“I will not let Gov. Hobbs, Attorney General Kris Mayes or Democrat Party ‘lawfare’ suppress my exercise of the rule of law or suppress my ability to preserve, protect and defend the constitutional freedoms that our republic was founded upon,” he said.

Actually, I think the republic was founded on the democratic principle that voters — not fake electors — decided elections

.

Snaring the Wealth 0

Ted McLaughlin explains Republican’s social security con. The gist (emphasis added); follow the link for the complete article.

The Republicans gained enough power to change the nation’s economic policy (under Reagan–ed.). They instituted a trickle-down economic policy (telling Americans that giving more to the rich would benefit everyone). But the new policy allowed the rich to hog almost all of the rising productivity. That meant the rich got a huge increase in income and wealth, while workers were no longer sharing in the rising productivity.

Since worker wages were not rising as expected (because nothing was trickling down), the Social Security funding was also not rising. This caused the funding problem Social Security will soon see. In other words, the Republicans caused the problem with Social Security with their failed economic policy favoring the rich (at the detriment of everyone else).
