    The Republicans in congress are doing their job. Their intention is to keep everything just as it is, unless they can manage to return to the “good old days” of the 19th century, before there was a middle class and when only the landed gentry were voters. And, they have a great strategy for accomplishing this.
    1. Disenfranchise everyone you possibly can, unless they are dependable Republican voters.
    2. Produce ads and media emphasis which emphasizes those politicians who are corrupt and incompetent. Paint all Democrats with the same slime. Lacking sufficient actual slime, simply make some up. This undermines the people’s trust in their government and makes them feel like helpless pawns, so they tune out the whole process and accept the status quo.
    3. Support the “job creators”, who have managed their affairs so that they are the recipients of a huge portion of the GNP, although that GNP was produced by working people, who are receiving less benefit from it every day. This gives them the money to accomplish the other two goals, and leaves everyone except the “job creators” with increasingly less money to mount a counter campaign.
    So, this is the way we are going lose the middle class and become a country inhabited only by the very rich 1%, and a 99% who are too busy working two jobs to survive to notice.

    copy and paste?
    Tip of the day: Obama is president and has been for 5+ years. The middle class is still losing ground and the rich are getting richer.
    Obama’s focus on destroying the nation’s health care has kept the economy in the toilet, which has emboldened companies to keep wages low and helping the dwindling middle class lose ground every day.
    Every Democrat running in the midterm should have as their slogan “rubber stamping the president”.
