Why are democrats asking me for money to do their job?

Sapient's picture

Quite a few #Republicans should be out of a job because of their negligence. I want to fight back. But I refuse to accept this idea from the DNC that a donation will do the job. Democrats don't need my money to do their job. They will get their paychecks tomorrow even when others will not. The democrats must learn how to respond to the dishonest tactics of Republicans better. When the Republicans say "the american people want this" someone needs to be there to say "actually polls show the american people don't want this."


You don't need my money to fight something that the Republicans promised to their base. The Republicans promised gleefully they would shut the government down as a tactic. They are getting what they want... the destruction of America so they can get their own sick twisted ideological goals based on a misinterpretation of a bronze age book and whoever is willing to give them the most money.

The Republicans are their to

The Republicans are there to piss off the middle class and play the "villain."

 

The Democrats are their to seem like they stick up for the middle class and play the "hero."

 

They're both evil scumbag parties.  They both work for the same people.  They both accept campaign money from lobbyists. 

 

They're part of the same sick play that the public buys into time and time again not seeing the bigger picture of what goes on behind the scenes.

 

So tired of this political siding.  Fight ALL OF THEM.  EVERY LAST THIEVING FUCK.

I do not like this

I do not like this comparison between the two parties. My only problem with democrats is that they have allowed the right to set the tone of law over the past 30 years. They had not had enough of a backbone to stand up to the party of  corporate welfare.

Those who like to claim that both parties are corrupt are the same people who pretend to be against "too big to fail" but want MORE deregulation that caused our 30 year decline in the first place.

You cannot complain about government standing up for the middle class and working poor while claiming stupid shit like "Citizens United" was a good thing, and side with the greed of "corporations are people too".

This shut down is merely fucking childish brats who cannot stand that they lost two presidential elections.

There is one party to blame and one party only. The only way things are going to get better is if the republican party gets the fuck out of the way. Otherwise we as democratic voters are going to run the fuck over them at the voting booth.

Trickle down didn't work, deregulation did not work, and any idiot who thinks less government will work under a corporate welfare dominated party is out of their fucking mind!

Our government is not "of the rich for the rich and by the rich". Business in America needs an attitude change. It needs to stop devaluing workers who make them rich. It needs to stop this childish blackmail of "if you raise my taxes, I will hold you hostage".

Democrats are not the problem. Obama IS NOT the problem. The republican party is.

this.

“A meritocratic society is one in which inequalities of wealth and social position solely reflect the unequal distribution of merit or skills amongst human beings, or are based upon factors beyond human control, for example luck or chance. Such a society is socially just because individuals are judged not by their gender, the colour of their skin or their religion, but according to their talents and willingness to work, or on what Martin Luther King called 'the content of their character'. By extension, social equality is unjust because it treats unequal individuals equally.” "Political Ideologies" by Andrew Heywood (2003)

For those who would normally

For those who would normally donate to the Democrats, I have a better idea this time around.

Rachel Maddow recently wrote about "Americans United for Change."

Quote:
Groups like Americans United for Change have started running aggressive ads in the districts of pro-shutdown members of Congress and are using the increasingly unpopular work stoppage and its economic after-effects to their advantage.  Americans United for Change has targeted nine other Republican House members who supported the shutdown...
