2014 Democratic Agenda: Protecting the 47 Percent

I think that the republicans tend to forget that the 47%, the ones that they have deemed worthless, still contribute to the economy and that contrary to the assumptions that the Republican Party hold very dear and cling to very strongly, these “worhtless” 47% are workers, veterans, parents, children, retirees and responsibile individuals who caught a bad hand from an economy that has been purposefully fashioned to shift most of the economic benefits upwards to the 1% in the finance industry. We need to vote for legislators who recognize that our society shouldn’t be governed exclusively for those who are wealthy, our society needs to be governed with the recognition that we are all in this together. Nowadays it is by the luck of who you are born to that determines if you will succeed, the odds of someone making it out of poverty and into the “middle class” is the same as in winning the lottery. The era of the mega stores and just the concept of Big took away the power of the small farmer, the small merchant and I think that is what took away a lot of what helped to create the strong middle class of yesteryear, when there existed a healthy dose of competition. Nowadays competition no longer exists, the Big Corporations ate up all of the competition and now they set whatever price they see fit. The Republican Party made their brand all about Big Business and we are suffering for it now. read the article:
