I have found this article on Facebook quite a few times in the last few days: Terrifying Law Turns Michigan Into A Theocracy — The Christian Right Is Coming For Your State Next. The Michigan Speaker of the House Jase Bolger says [House Bill HB 5958 will] merely protect people and their beliefs and practice of religion.” So….what is the truth. As one of those people to like to read laws and Supreme Court decisions (ok, I am a little strange), I took it upon myself to read the law in question.

According to the bill itself, its purpose is: ” To guarantee application of the compelling interest test, as recognized by the United States supreme court to all cases where free exercise of religion is substantially burdened by government [and] To provide a claim or defense to persons whose religious exercise is substantially burdened by government.” Ok….how do they do that. The bill states that religious institutions must persuasively demonstrate that the practice or observance of religion, including an act or refusal to act, that is substantially motivated by a sincerely held religious belief, whether or not compelled by or central to a system of religious belief.

According to some sources, this law gives people of religion and religious institutions a carte blanche to withhold aid or services to anyone. But that is not the case according to the law. Government may substantially burden a person’s exercise of religion only if it demonstrates that application of the burden to that person’s exercise of religion in that particular instance is both of the following:
(a) In furtherance of a compelling governmental interest.
(b) The least restrictive means of furthering that compelling governmental interest.

Over the last few years, groups have used laws to try to bend religious businesses to their will. First was the Hobby Lobby case which went all the way to the Supreme Court. Hobby Lobby was founded on very strong religious principals and did not want to provide certain birth control methods to their employees which violated the very business principals for which Hobby Lobby was founded. Hobby Lobby won.

But in a couple of other cases, which has not gone to the Supreme Court, lost. In Colorado, a baker lost his case when he refused to make a wedding cake for a same sex couple. He defended himself saying that making a cake like this would have violated his religious beliefs. In New Mexico, a wedding photographer lost his case when he refused to take wedding pictures of a same sex wedding saying to do so would violate his closely held religious beliefs.

The Michigan Religious Freedom Restoration Act in my opinion, from reading the bill, offers protections to religious businesses who have closely held beliefs and to those who may hold differing views. A person who denies service to some who and then is sued in court must then show evidence and of persuasion of substantially motivated by a sincerely held religious beliefs. A close reading of the bill highlights this opinion.

I have never been a conspiracy theorist, but after all of these things that President Obama has been doing over the past few years, I am beginning to wonder if he is not trying to destroy this country. According to the Washington Times illegal aliens become a more attractive hire for businesses:

Under the Affordable Care Act, that means businesses who hire them won’t have to pay a penalty for not providing them health coverage — making them $3,000 more attractive than a similar native-born worker, whom the business by law would have to cover.

The President is going around the country doubling down on his immigration plan.

“Immigrants are good for the economy. We keep on hearing that they’re bad, but a report by my Council of Economic Advisers put out last week shows how the actions we’re taking will grow our economy for everybody,” he said.

But did you notice what he did not say in that one statement? He did not say that it would not hurt American workers, he only said that his plan would “grow the ECONOMY for everybody.”

No officer, I was not speeding. I was keeping up with everybody else. As President, you can only take this so far before the people start saying that he lied……again. Ok, maybe this one will be added to all the others. But the point is, we can not believe anything this President says….anything.

Is he trying to destroy this country? I can not longer give a definitive answer of No. I am no longer sure.

The 2014 midterm election is almost upon us. For 230 years America has struggled with this experiment called democracy. And now we are standing at the cross-roads. We have a choice between turning left and turning right. Turn left and we continue the failed economic policies of Barack Obama, we continue with a sluggish economy, an over-active federal government, the very unpopular ObamaCare, a decimated military, and we will continue to be the laughing stock of the world. Turn right and maybe we can save a sinking ship, we can return to economic growth, a nation with strong family values, build up our military again, and then maybe our friends will support us and our enemies will fear us.

What bothers me are the views of everyday Americans heading into this election. People wake up in the morning, go to work, and then vote if they have time and if it allows them to get home in time to watch their favorite television program. By-in-large most Americans do not even know who they are voting for or why. A large number of people do not even know who our Vice President is. Name recognition becomes the key to winning any election. We as a country have lost our roots. In the last presidential election, only 52% of the voting age population even bothered to vote. What a disgrace! Voting is how we as the electorate hold our politicians accountable. Voting is one way we maintain our democracy—our freedom.

David Gerrold offered what I believe is the best definition of freedom I have ever heard. In his book, A Matter for Men, he defined freedom as ‘being allowed the opportunity to be responsible for your own actions.’ This country was founded on the idea of liberty. But liberty comes at a price. It must be maintained or else it flounders. Thomas Jefferson wrote that the ‘price of liberty is eternal vigilance.’ The people of this country have the right to vote and they have an obligation to vote. Voting also requires the people to be responsible to know for whom and why they are voting. Most people do not know the candidates or the issues, but this is not entirely the fault of the electorate. Knowledge of candidates takes the form of sound-bites and slogans. Candidates will often besmear each other in order to win the sound-bite war. But sound-bites tell very little if anything of the views of each candidate.

And now race hustlers have enter the fray. In order to further their own quest for money, power, and glory, these race whores conger up images of slavery, Jim Crow, the plantation, KKK, and the like. They help us to remember the worst of times and transfer those same feelings to today.
The MSM has entered into the fray. They are no longer content with just telling the news, they now see themselves as the final arbiters—choosing the winners and loser of each election. They see themselves as the protectors of liberty, but only those provisions given in the constitution they agree with. Therefore, for the MSM, their coverage is neither objective nor balanced.

Institutions once seen as vital to the survival of America have come under attack. Religious freedoms are no longer protected at work, or school, and particularly not at city hall. Even celebrating Christmas has come under fire. Our military as the protectors of this great country has become a bargaining chip for some of our politicians. Our heroes are called murderers and terrorists by politicians willing to use them for some perceived political advantage. Our troops are demeaned and called stupid these same self-absorbed politicians.

The very foundations of America are under attack and yet people either stay home rather than vote or they cast uninformed vote. When it comes to voting, Americans are lazy. Voting requires action. Being informed takes initiative. These are two things when taken together is something Americans have not had in many years—an informed vote.

We used to be a strong vibrant country based on God, on freedom, on individualism. People rallied to a cause and fought to the end. Wars were fought and won because the safety of America was at stake. Taxes were raised only during national emergencies. Politicians placed the benefit of America ahead of their political ambitions. Today that has all changed. Wars have become political fodder. Reasons for going to war are being shortchanged political expediency. Politicians use class warfare as an excuse to raise taxes on the rich. What ever happened to politicians who placed America first?

When Iraq became free of their brutal dictator, the Iraqi people flocked to the polls to vote in numbers never seen in the US. They tasted freedom for the first time and liked it. They faced death in order to cast a vote in their very first free election. If the roles were reversed, how many Americans would voluntarily face such dangers in order to vote?

Americans have lost their way. They have been led to believe that being nothing is better than being somebody, that easy is better than hard, that weak is better than strong, that poor is better than rich. We have been led to believe that all of the world’s problems stem from the US. There is an empire which thought this same thing, who thought that being entertained was better than doing something yourself, who became lazy because of her strength, and that empire was Rome. The Roman Empire fell from within. The United States is heading that direction-towards disaster.

All hope is not lost. The Iraqi people flocked to the polls because they tasted freedom for the first time. And for the first time they had the opportunity to be responsible for their own actions. What we need to do is to remember. Remember when this country was strong and we were proud of it. Remember when our military was an honored institution all across America. Remember when hard work was encouraged and rewarded. Remember when the marriage was a honored institution. Remember when we valued life and the innocent. Remember when we treasured the Constitution and the Bill or Rights. Remember when our politicians worked for us. Remember when this country valued freedom. But if we do not start now, we may well run the risk of going from this “city upon a hill” as envisioned by Cotton Matther is 1630, to becoming a curse word among all the nations. If this country were to return to God, return to His values, return to this nation’s roots, we may not only survive, but to grow. People immigrate to the country for a reason. It is still a beacon for all the world to see, but for how much longer?
Irving Dillard once wrote:

“I often wonder whether we do no rest our hopes too much upon constitutions, upon laws and upon courts. These are false hopes; believe me, these are false hopes. Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it.

Liberty…its so hard to define and yet it is what everyone wants. Liberty begins with responsibility. Knowing the candidates and knowing the political parties. Some people say there is no difference between the two parties, but this is the slogan of the uninformed. The difference between the two sides could not be more stark. One stands for freedom while the other stands for government, one stands for the individual while the other stands for the group, one stands for strength while the other stands for weakness, one stands for God while the other stands for self, one stands for life while the other stands for ‘reproductive choice,’ one stands for strength while the other stands for weakness. In each case, the first is for the Republican Party while the second is the Democratic Party. This is of course a generalization. There are some in each party I like and don’t like. I would vote for Democrat Zell Miller in any election and over many Republicans. At the same time I would vote for Mickey Mouse before I would a Democrat like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, or Barack Obama. I would not vote for Republican Lincoln Chaffee even if he was running unopposed. That is where knowing the candidates come in. This is the difference in the parties in a nutshell.

Today is election day, Mid-term election of 2014. As a nation, we can either support our freedoms and go vote responsibly, or…….go the way of Rome. If we continue on this downward slide towards Socialism, God help us, because we will not get our freedoms back.

The Supreme Court today released its ruling today on what is known as the “Hobby Lobby case.” The Green family sued HHS because the family’s religious objections to certain kinds of birth control which had the effect of ending the life of a fetus. To say this another way, the court was to rule on whether or not the Federal government could require religious institutions and companies to support abortions. Several religious companies sued including Hobby Lobby.
The Court had several issues–could Hobby Lobby as a for profit corporation have religious objections (the Court said Yes–corporations have individual rights), does the contraceptive mandate substantially burden the exercise of religion (the Court said Yes–see next paragraph), and is forcing companies like Hobby Lobby to offer contraceptives the least restrictive way (the Court said NO).
The High Court nailed down one of the main issues–the effect of forcing of a moral act which enables or facilitates the commission of an immoral act by another make the moral act an immoral one. In this case Hobby Lobby is forced to offer a wide range of contraceptives to their employees (moral act) one of which allows a woman to terminate her pregnancy (immoral to Hobby Lobby).
To me, this case is less about ObamaCare and more about religious liberty. As the Court states, “…this Court’s “narrow function ….is to determine” whether the plaintiffs’ [Hobby Lobby, et al] asserted religious belief reflects “an honest conviction,” and there is no dispute here that it does.” A company or corporation has the same rights as an individual–religious, political, etc. Religious liberty has gained new strengths because of this ruling.
On the down side, the Supreme Court included this one little tidbit. “This decision only concerns the contraceptive mandates…”

What has happened to the Democrats in Texas? There was a time when a Democrat in this Southern state was not much different than a Republican. They were in fact called “Blue Dog Democrats.” After the 1980 election which brought Ronald Reagan to the Presidency, they were called Reagan Democrats because these blue dogs voted in mass numbers for President Reagan. In reality they were conservatives who identified themselves with the Democrat Party because of history. With the ascension of Barack Obama to the presidency, all of that changed as the party of the South lurched to left. Many of the old Blue Dogs had no choice but to join with the Republican Party if they were to vote their conscience. It was then that the historical link between the South and the Democrats came to an abrupt end. Texas became a reliably red state. Even during Barack Obama’s re-election run in 2012 when many states went from red to purple or from purple to blue, Texas went even more red.

During the 2014 Texas Primaries, I had a chance to read the propositions being considered by Texas Democrats. One of them was called, “A Living Wage for All Texans” as they call for Congress to pass legislation raising the minimum wage to 110% of poverty level. Texas Democrats passed this proposal with 89% supporting it. This is an extremely progressive proposal for Texas. As I read this very liberal proposal, I had began to consider the history of Texas and the Democrat Party. There is no way Lyndon Johnson, or Sam Rayburn or Lloyd Bentsen have ever proposed such a thing as a ‘living wage.’ They would have seen such a proposal for what it was–redistribution of wealth and another step towards socialism. These were all great men who loved Texas and loved the freedoms of America. To a man I believe they would have run from such a liberal proposition.

The very idea of a ‘living wage’ based on the poverty level is ludicrous on its very face. When wages are raised, costs go up for businesses. They in turn raise their prices in order to compensate for paying the higher wages. Higher prices in turn lead to inflation, a slower economy and more poverty. So, the wages are raised once again. This would become a vicious cycle with no end in sight. It is a stupid idea. And it will not work.

So…what happened to the Democrats in Texas? What brought the once proud party of Lloyd Bentsen and other historic leaders of Texas to support such a flawed proposal as the ‘living wage.’ The answer is……I don’t know. Texas is a red state and any politician who supports such a proposal is committing political suicide. As someone loves to study history, I can say with confidence that former Governor John Connally would turn over in his grave if he could see what has happened to his once proud party.

As a Republican the left turn by the Democrats gives me confidence that Texas will remain in our hands for a long time. As a conservative, the turn left by the Democrats do not generally bother me…..except their proposals would destroy the Texas I know and love. For that reason alone, I hope the Democrat Party remains the minority party. Who knows, they might come to see the error of their ways. …………….. It could happen, right?!

I can not believe President Obama is taking credit for a lower jobless rate achieved only because so many million Americans have quite looking for a job.

Pushing partisan rancor by blaming Republicans for trying to slow down government growth.

Here it comes… The President is pushing for better wages and less economic disparity between the rich and the poor. He does not mention that that rate has gone up more since he has come into office than any other president including George W. Bush.

Update
8:26 Finally he his talking sense. He wants to lower the tax rate on businesses. Finally. It only took 5 years.

8:29 I am really tired of the President telling us how wonderful he is. Every other president I have heard always says “we.” This president says, “I.”

8:31 I can not believe he is taking credit for a more energy independent US. Oil prices and private oil search is the most significant things in lowing US oil consumption.

8:33 Now he is on the global warming crap again. What a waste of time. Can he not tell that the planet is cooling. What nonsense.

8:35 Immigration time. Apparently the President feels that immigration is the Achilles heel of the Republican party.

8:38 Another Achilles heel. He wants Congress to extend unemployment benefits that expired recently.

8:46 Barack Obama is now pushing for the Equal Rights Amendment? He should know that it is dead. It died because it was found that women earn less because they DO take time off to have kids. It is a cost. Why should men make the same as women when they do not take time off for these reasons. Again….nonsense.

8: 49 The push for higher wages for all by increasing the minimum wage. Stupid. It costs money and jobs.

8:51 Wow, this guy is tremendously liberal. Now he is pushing all of his socialistic agendas. One after the other.

8:54 Now Barack Obama is pushing his failed legacy–ObamaCare. What a losing proposition. Only the Democrats have applauded for the last few proposals. He is about to break his arm patting himself on the back for ObamaCare. Wow, what arrogance.

8:57 He is ridiculing Republicans for not having a credible alternative plan to help Americans have medical insurance. He has definitely inflated the numbers who have enrolled in ObamaCare.

9:00 Attacking Guns. All throughout his speech, he has talked about what he will do on his own without the help of Congress if need be. He is out of control.

9:01 The President has taken the time to thank our troops in uniform. Well done, Mr. President.

9:06 Really, is he really going to go through the ‘close Gitmo’ theme again.

9:07 Obama decided that he is on Israel’s side after all. Who would have guessed?

9:10 At this point, I think the Democrats will applaud if Barack Obama suddenly started talking about a chicken sandwich. They continually applaud and give the President a standing ovation.

9:15 The President does know how to give a rah, rah speech, especially where our troops are concerned. They are being given a longer standing ovation than the President was given.

9:20 The President is done giving his State of the Union Speech. Thoughts on his speech:
It was a highly partisan speech in which he attacked Republicans not by name for not supporting his liberal agenda. Congress gave him many standing ovations of which well over half were from the Democrats only. His speech was very short of details on new ideas. He also felt obligated to discuss the old failed agenda issues of the past.

Some of the new and extremely liberal agenda items include a higher minimum wage, a new Equal Rights Amendment, and a country where every American has an IRA.

In the end the speech was very, very liberal. It was not designed to persuade anybody of the wrongness of their position. I think this was a speech given by a President who knew he was a lame-duck President and was unlikely to achieve anything meaningful in his last 3 years, but is hopeful none the less.

Where did these northeastern liberals learn their history? Senator Chris Murphy (D) Connecticut is a typical example.

“The idea that the Second Amendment was put in there in order to allow citizens to fight their government is insane. If that was the case, we wouldn’t have also included treason in the United States constitution. We basically said, ‘If you take arms up against the government, we’re going to knock your block off,’ and that’s what the early Presidents ended up doing in the rebellion and the whiskey rebellion. The Second Amendment is not designed to allow the citizenry to arm itself against the government, and nullification is another example of states not understanding the true nature of that amendment.”

Wow! Note to Chris Murphy, you do NOT know your history! All of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution were written after the war with Great Britain to obtain our independence. So everything must be filtered through that prism to understand what our founding fathers were trying to accomplish and why they did it that way. The British attempted to confiscate weapons from the colonists who used weapons not only for defense against the Indians but also for hunting and to protect themselves from a tyrannical government. Consider these quotes from some of our Founding Fathers:
Thomas Jefferson

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

A Bill of Rights is what the people are entitled to against every government, and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inference.

None but an armed nation can dispense with a standing army. To keep ours armed and disciplined is therefore at all times important.

One loves to possess arms, though they hope never to have occasion for them.

The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.

or George Washington

Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples’ liberty’s teeth.

or James Madison

Americans have the right and advantage of being armed – unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.

Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.

The Constitution preserves the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation where the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.

Samuel Adams

The Constitution shall never be construed… to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.

Benjamin Franklin

Rebellion against tyrants is obedience to God.

“I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”

And then there are some quotes which are even are even more telling.

“A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves …”
Richard Henry Lee

“And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the Press, or the rights of Conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms; …”
Samuel Adams

“Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence … from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable … the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference — they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good.”
George Washington

“To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.”
Richard Henry Lee

“The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that … it is their right and duty to be at all times armed; … ”
Thomas Jefferson

“The best we can help for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.”
Alexander Hamilton

“What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.”
Thomas Jefferson

Liberals ignore history or change history for their own political advantage. Senator Chris Murphy is not an aberration in this regard.

“Our main agenda is to have all guns banned. We must use whatever means possible. It doesn’t matter if you have to distort the facts or even lie. Our task of creating a socialist America can only succeed when those who would resist us have been totally disarmed.”
Sara Brady
Chairman, Handgun Control Inc, to Senator Howard Metzenbaum

Liberals have always ignored or distorted history for their own twisted agendas. The Whiskey Rebellion was nothing more than growing pains of the new government. Never, did the government consider confiscating the guns of those rebelling. And as far as nullification is concerned. The idea was floated among those who wrote the Constitution and the idea was never fully put to rest. The idea of nullification, that the states can nullify a national law, has always held a lot of sway with many people including the founding fathers. The idea that common people could not own guns was never an issue with those who wrote that amazing document called the “Constitution.”

The truth does not matter to liberals when the goal is to ban all guns. To them our founding fathers have become old relics destined for the dustbins of history and it is best if they were forgotten entirely. Lost in this debate is what it cost us as a country if we do not stand up to tyranny now. Like our ancestors stand at the precipice of history. Will we allow a tyrannical government chip away at our rights or will we stand firm.

We are at that critical time once again. What is next? What other rights do we have as Americans are we willing to concede. We are indeed on a slippery slide. The very foundations of our country are at stake. Our founding fathers were true giants of intellect. Their vision led the United States of America to become the most powerful country in the world. And it is all because this this country was based in individual liberties, not collective ones. And when we distort history for our own gain, then we risk losing the very things which made this country great.

There are times when that when I see some really idiotic post from the far left that is really really bad (meaning full of lies) I want to reach out and shake them to see if they are asleep or if they just have sipping on the kool-aid for far too long. The post from No More Mister Nice Blog is no different.

There have been plenty of racist signs and slogans at tea party rallies over the years….

Really!? Have you ever been to a TEA Party? Have YOU with your own eyes seen these racist slogans> I doubt it. He/She goes on with the vitriolic rant, but I will not bother with it here. You can read it for yourself if you want to see someone just copy what all these other far left sites have been saying and we know they are full of nonsense.

Just a note to the blogger who posted this crap, If you want to stand out in the blogosphere, you must be….different. In the liberal side of things, your blog is no different than any other on the left–distract, obfuscate, and lie. Muddy the waters so that those who do keep up with things will use your blog as a source of information. As I said, a typical from the left.

Then again, you might very well be one of those who just copy the idiotic vitriol from the wackos on the far left–the Daily Kos, etc. To them, you do not stand out, you are just someone who repeats what they say. You have become the cheering section for those who know better but say things just to cause trouble, or because their masters in Washington demand their allegiance. Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Barack Obama would be proud of your subservience.
Do you even know what the TEA Party stands for or do you just follow the dribble of others. Check into it. You will not find anything racist at their rallies. Racism is in America. There are white racists, black racists, Mexican racists and so on. I know. I have been to several and have seen the organizers make people take down their signs if it could even remotely be considered inappropriate. They police their own. At their rallies are all kinds of people, Democrats, Republicans, blacks, whites, Hispanics, Asians, etc. They are a mishmash of America. They only want what is best for America. And to blame to Koch Brothers or Fox News is idiotic at best. Time to quit being a patsy for those who came before you and make your own noise.

Where has the Democrat Party of my grandfather? I can remember sitting on my grandfather’s knee and him telling me why he supported the Democrats. It was all because of what the Democrat presidents stood for and accomplished. I have since found out that much of what he believed was not based on fact but demagoguery by the Democrats, but this is not a history lesson.

At one time the party of FDR and JFK was the party of the little guy. They wanted to raise wages to help the little guy. They pushed for electricity in rural areas to help the little guy. They even pushed through a very unpopular health care plan (ObamaCare) all to help the ‘little guy.’ And now when things don’t go their way, the Democrats blame the little guy.

Early Tuesday during a House Ways and Means Committee, Democrat Jim McDermott blamed tea party groups for IRS targeting. McDermott essentially said that because conservative groups dared to apply for tax exempt status, they deserved to be targeted.

Wow! Really?! Is this not like blaming the victim? I guess in Jim McDermott’s little world the woman deserved to be raped, because she is, after all, a woman. In McDermott’s fantasy world, you deserved to be robbed, because it was you who decided to walk instead of drive. In McDermott’s dream world, your car deserved to be stolen, because you were the one who decided to park in the parking lot. In McDermott’s imaginary world, you deserved to be car-jacked, because you decided to drive down the road instead of walk. In McDermott’s flight of imagination, the victim is always wrong if….you disagree with his political fantasy.

Like so many on the left, Jim McDermott forgot who he is representing. He is a public servant. Another words, he works for us, his constituents. This kind of behavior is beneath the dignity of his office. I would expect this kind of behavior from goofballs at the ‘Daily Kos, or Media Matters. But McDermott is a public servant. I feel like a broken record because of my indignation. He is or should be above such pettiness. But then again, McDermott is a Democrat.

I guess I should not be surprised. Isn’t Jim McDermott with the party that booed God? Is this not the same party who booed Jerusalem? Is this not the same party that let four other public servants die in Benghazi and then lied about it? Is this not the same party who lied about sex in the White House and then protected their hero? Is this not the same party who calls for the IRS to investigate TEA Party people and then feigns surprise when it is done or blames the victim? (Oops, did that one already) This is supposed to be the party of the little guy, at least that is who they claim they support the little guy. But then when the little guy needs some help, and the government does not help, what do the Democrats do? Blame the little guy for supporting the wrong party. What hypocrites!

The Party of my grandfather and his father is gone. It has been replaced by a bunch of leftist elitists who back the small guy when it is convenient, who cover-up incompetence in the White House because they are the same party, who lie and cheat and then blame everyone else for their problems. RIP Democrats, my grandfather would be turning over in his grave if he knew how far left his party had gone.
