The Last Of The Millenniums

Just a month ago, Mitt Romney was using a visit with firefighters in New York as a talking point. Firefighters had to get two jobs just to get by.

Now he sees cutting firefighters, police, teachers, as ‘helping the American people’.

Just how does this ‘help’ America?

Oh that’s right.

Those are tax supported jobs.

We need the ‘job creators’ to create a profit driven job market.

Who’s going to teach the people to work in those markets?

Who’s going to provide ‘protect and serve’ communities for those people in those markets to live in?

As income inequality grows wider, people have no one to blame but themselves.

Likely it is a combination of fear and “that’s how I was raised…once a repub, always a repub”. Movement conservatism attempts to control using fear…that is why they take issues like abortion, gay marriage, and religion (that truly should NOT be political issues) and manipulate voters by inducing fear about these issues. They also continuously use fear in manipulating opinion about “war” and “terror” and “in the interest of NATIONAL SECURITY”.
