This will be my shortest blog and probably one of the most important ones that I have written. The reason why, and I can guarantee it, that Democrats will lose control over both houses and probably the White House is the willingness or appearance for them to cut Entitlement Programs to appease the Republican. Why should I, as a registered voter, vote for Democrats when they are so willing to give up the fight to Republicans. If you have notice in the political world that in order for the country to start working and moving in the right direction with deficit reduction measures and spending cuts, than Entitlement programs are being discussed by both parties as part of the plan to cut.
The Republicans was the first to strike war with the middle and lower class, and the ederly on cutting their Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid programs. The Democrats at first, was all for going to war with the Republicans on this issue, and was not going to support any cuts to entitlement programs. Now! Democrats seem more willing to cut these programs in order to get Republican backing on other measures that seek to beat down the ones that have been beaten the most in this economic downturn. When November 2012 comes rolling around, as well as other pivotal elections begin. The trend is if you are Democrat than your chances at keeping office is slim to none, because of what it appears that the Democratic party is willing to give up. It is some Democrats that refuse to put their job or representation on the line in order to protect Entitlement Programs, but it seems like not enough are coming to their aid in the process.
The appearance is the Democrats will not stand up for anything. The Republicans say jump and they jump. It may be time to start firing these Democrats and start putting in a new breed, just like the Tea Party put in a new breed of Republican in Washington, D.C. Anyone that has back down from Republican opposition to say that Entitlement programs should be put on the table doesn't deserve to keep their job. Your oath is with the people that you are elected to represent, and not with those that threaten your constituents while you sit idly bye as it happens, hiding in a office, and refusing to take the phone calls of very angry voters. If Democrats appear to be going in that direction willing to make cuts with Republicans that is more experience at planning for Entitlement Program termination. Republicans are readily prepared, and their strategy has already been put to paper for future passage.
Entitlement program recipients are in need of a increase and not a decrease in funding. The funds that they recieve are not even covering the expenses that they have as it is, but it seems like the only ones getting a increase is Corporations and other businesses that have seen high levels of profits under the work with less philosophy. This is not painted to change because of their greed to keep things the way that they are. If you find a winning strategy than what company will be willing to change economic growth even though it does not help other sectors of the economy. The philosophy is "I feel sorry for you, but I would never want to be you, " states Corporations.
In conclusion, if Democrats think the appearance of being willing to allow cuts to Entitlement Program is the way to keep your job. You may want to rethink that approach and start dismissing even the President on this possible resolution. If the President even thinks that he will stay in office by repeating that Entitlement programs are on the table, than he is wrong and will face the consequences of his barganing in November 2012. The best thing for Democrats to do is tell President Obama to end his campaign on trying to give Republicans cuts to Entitlement Program and end wars in foreign countries. Stop rebuilding Afghanistan and Iraq and start Rebuilding America. It is as simple as that.
Democrats will lose if they keep the appearance that they are willing to put Entitlement Programs on the bargaining table. Real Americans know if the government doesn't stay helping their loved ones, than their loved ones will have to come to them at a time when they don't have it. How would your grand parents feel when you have to look them in the eye when they ask you for help meeting day to day expenses that you no longer have anything to give. The expression on your loved one face will be priceless, but the anger from the ones that want to help so much, but they can't will echo back to Washington. Do not become guilty by association!
In 2008, When President Obama was elected? He had every opportunity to end the Bush tax cuts, when both houses had a Democratic majority, and instead led a very unpopular campaign to fix Health Care more than fix the economy. This decision has led to his downfall. President Obama also had a chance to end all the political posturing by invoking the 14 amendment right after the House rejected Boehner's bill. President Clinton said it best, "Invoke the 14 Amendment and raise the debt ceiling and dare the U.S Supreme Court to stop him. Instead, the media and the public had to watch a indecisive President and Congress fight it out to America detriment and lost its AAA Credit Rating when Obama could have just invoked the 14th Amendment and raise the debt ceiling on his own. President Obama after the debt talks was over had only a Check in a game of Chess, and the Republicans had Checkmate. Republicans are winning elections because they are decisive, and hopefully the President finally takes a page out of their book and starts being decisive as well.
