I have been watching this for a bit, and it never ceases to amaze me how many tend to forget some of the things that the left has proposed and passed,
that is not bad, and how many people tend to forget some things, and truths that are out there, until it affects them personally.
The first thing is that apparent is that the political parties, tend to flip on issues on a regular basis. One day one thing is good to one party,
the next it is bad and the other side think it is good.
So lets look at some of those terms that the Op has pointed out:
Investing in the future is equated to Taxing the present.
While yes I do agree that taxes are too high, however, here is the trade off and things to consider. Programs like the Student Loan program does need
to get assistance. If this country is going to succeed in the future, to have jobs, manufacturing, even some of the goals, require taxes. The roads
are not going to repair themselves, and right now how is that space program going, without NASA sending any person into space. In fact the country
has fallen behind in the space area. We require Russia to send US Astronauts into space, and charging the US. That is going to require money and
The Pro-choice: Funny how people tend to go right to the death of an unborn child. Yet here is the truth on that topic: when it comes to the right,
the concern about the child that is not born is all there, however, when it comes to say raising taxes to provide for say affordable housing, food and
medical assistance, then it is no. The entire argument there has been uneven with the right only trying to disguise it from what it really is, the
control over women, to the point of violating the most fundamental of all rights, the right of privacy.
The undocumented worker. Well truth be told, we all are descended from illegal immigrants, the undocumented workers whose ancestors came here to find
a better life. And what is never stated, is that often these very people who come here, do not get the best paying jobs, but take the jobs that no
one wants, and do it well. While I do agree that the system is broken, but is it so wrong to fault others for trying to improve their life or their
family? Are we so terrified of the other person that we would turn our backs or even deny a person the right to try to achieve the very same thing we
are wanting to achieve?
The Asylum seeker: Funny how the Op tended to neglect the very history of the asylum laws, how that is was the very policies of the US and other
countries that directly contributed to some of the most horrifying terrors of the 20th century, the holocaust. How when after World War II came out,
how it was revealed that people fleeing for their very lives, were denied entry, and thus ended up dying at the hands of the NAZI’s and that the
most vulnerable were turned away from the lack of a country willing to give them protection. It was out of horror and shame that the US denied such,
that the asylum laws were put into place. And what is even worse, is that the policies that were done by the US are now coming to full circle and the
people who are coming from the Latin American countries, seeking Asylum are the victims of those policies. The mess that the US created, is now at
Public Housing: While it is true that the projects are horrible, but it is a noble idea, built to try to rectify the fact of slavery and then the Jim
crow era. But it also sought to help the poor of the country. While it is not a perfect thing, it was a solution that helped many. However it was a
trap that was designed to keep people dependent on the government, and in some areas, there are often not enough to ensure that enough people could
afford to get out of the projects.
Minimum wage: While it is unskilled compensation, however, is having a living wage such a bad thing? Not everyone went to college, and many of the
jobs that would require simple labor, should not be penalized for not going to higher education, where they were either unable to afford or get into
higher education. The minimum wage is to ensure that people are paid a fair and decent wage in exchange for their labor. Don’t you think that they
deserve to be paid for their work? And here again, there is history where people were not paid to do a job, or worse paid in script, where they were
stuck in a job, unable to get out, as the job would start to charge them for everything. The best example of that would be from the song: 16 Tons.
Where it was about was how a person was working, with no minimum wage and ended up in debt that his family would have to pick up.
Subsidized: While I am not a fan of food stamps, and do believe it is being abused, however, the idea, is that people, living in a modern country,
should starve should be abhorrent to all others. Would you have this country go through the same thing that France did before its revolution, where
even a loaf of bread appears to be a banquet. Children should not be starving or going hungry, is that what we want, to where some go hungry, and are
not able to do well, all for the lack of proper nutrients to grow and achieve?
Democratic Socialism: How so many would equate that to being communism, all for the ideas do not appeal to those who are on the right. Yet the truth
be told, how well has the right done to govern the country in the past 2 years? What major benefits to the common man out there is there? How well
can a country survive, when there is a serious wage inequality that is steadily growing, where people are struggling to just survive and are often at
a point where one disaster, or unexpected bill could cause them to need to declare bankruptcy? Is that any way to live? And funny how many tend to
ignore that there have been socialist ideas that were implemented in the US that everyone likes, have become a staple, agree it is a good idea, but at
the same time, would deny if it was brought up by the wrong party. Is Social Security such a bad idea, or medicare? How about the utilities, is that
a bad thing or even say the roads we drive on? Is helping the disabled such a bad thing, or would it be kinder to just leave them out on the streets?
How about helping the Veterans? What about if one needs a defense attorney, should we deny the very right to have such?
Common Sense gun control: How many guns have been confiscated? And what is more important, how many more people have to die? How many times has the
people had to rise up and overthrow the government? Funny how of all of the rights out there, this one right, no one wants to state what is and is
not protected by the constitution. The lines are drawn, however, those who want gun control, are gaining numbers faster than those who want it
unlimited. The thing is that the survivors and families of the victims are no longer wanting hopes and prayers, they want action, and their numbers
are growing every day, every time there is a mass shooting, the numbers increases. In short there will come a time when that number hits the tipping
point, and once that happens, the question of if there is or is not will be answered and in short, it could result in the country seeing something it
has not seen since 1933. The saddest thing of all, is that both sides of the argument have valid points, but neither side is willing to listen or
consider those points.
Free speech: Both sides are guilty of what the Op has stated
