Wait until November -- vote Democrat

  • Follow Letters

I have been seeing some bumper stickers around town lately stating, "We want to take our country back." Recently I stopped to see who was emerging from an automobile with such a bumper sticker on it. To my surprise, the individual wasn't a Native American. I was tempted to ask the man from whom he was going to take the country. I wanted to tell him that this country belongs to all Americans, not a particular group or party.

I also have seen other bumper stickers stating "Wait until November." What is going to happen in November besides Thanksgiving? And it came to me that Election Day is in November, and maybe this message implies that some are eagerly waiting for the Republicans to get control of Congress. But the voters can't be that uninformed to return Congress to the party that got us into the financial crisis. That would be mega-dumb.

There are two traits common among many American voters: short attention spans and the need for instant gratification. Many don't recall or connect the Bush policies to the present economic situation. And some don't understand why these troubles can't be fixed just by wishing it so. If the voters lash out to teach "them" a lesson, it will be at a greater cost to the voters themselves.

The Republicans have been obstructionists refusing to work with the Democrats, and their only agenda items have been tax cuts and less regulation. If they gain control of Congress and are able to enact their agenda, we may have a depression.

Time is out for pandering, grandstanding and sound bites. It took a decade to get in the ditch we are in, and we aren't going to get out instantly.

I sincerely believe the Democrats have the better agenda to lead us forward. We must vote in November to keep the present party in power.

Tracy E. Williams Jr.

So I wonder when a Republican

So I wonder when a Republican gets into the WH- whenever that may be- and runs up an even bigger national debt- it's inevitable, the population keeps growing- then what?

tnulth, don't get caught with

tnulth, don't get caught with it in your system. Must be some strong stuff. Under the Honorable G. W. Bush the dow rose to 14000 plus. Then the dems took congress in 2006, the market started down. When dumbobama was selected to represent the dem party it took another dive, then when he was elected it went down, down, down under 8000. It is now hovering at 10000. It will not stabilize or go up until the socialist in charge and his fellow socialist comrades have been ousted. It can't come soon enough. However, the silent majority and speak loudly in November.

Something I have posted

Something I have posted before, and to echo ron_rlw, I offer part of an editorial from the Czech Republic:

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."

I believe the questionable Mr. Wililiams should consider himself a card-carrying member of that vast confederacy.

If you're asking, yes Tracy

If you're asking, yes Tracy Williams is black and yes he thinks that all whites dislike Obama because he's black and yes we've heard all this before from Williams and yes Williams writes into the AC about whites are all racist and yes people like Williams is a very good reason to VOTE FOR anything GOP.

Fiat, are you one of the infamous Czech Brothers from Saturday Night Live? And is that NBF as your avatar? I really don't think he was a Czech.

APEX24, as usually the voice of reason. What would we do without you? I don't know but willing to take that chance. Let us know when you come up with part two of your same old stale song.

Don’t be so hard on Jr after all he is just repeating what the DUMocrats and black leaders have been teaching in black communities and black churches for years. Jr is just typical of those that believe the lies.

Ispy, this is Part II. I see

Ispy, this is Part II. I see you still have a problem with the truth when it comes to race relations. White people now understand that no matter what we do or say as white's it will never be enough. The thing now is most white's have heard and seen enough that we don't care what you race baiters think anymore. Sooooo, people like Ispy, RCR and Tracey Williams Jr. keep up your race baiting because it just helps the votes come our way.

I love how conservatives

I love how conservatives demand less govt intervention in the economy but still fault the White House for not magically intervening in a way that solves all our problems. Please make up your minds! Third, the world's largest economy is facing one of its greatest financial collapses in history, partially as a result of nearly a decade of misguided CONSERVATIVE ECONOMIC POLICIES. It's a far larger problem than one president and half a term can solve. Finally, Obama has been trying to get congress to approve a package of tax cuts for small businesses that was co-sponsored by a SC house republican. You remember those things, right? Small businesses? Tax cuts? GOP-sponsored legislation? I thought conservatives loved those things. Unfortunately the GOP has been stalling them out in the senate for fear that they might help the economy and thus help the president and the Democrats. Right now the GOP is not only cheering on the recession, they're actively seeking to extend it for political gain. It's hard for any president to solve all the nation's ills when half the senate is seeking to drag the country down in order to increase voter anger at the incumbent majority party.

If, as most conservatives

If, as most conservatives think, this country is in the toilet; then let's vote in the GOP in 2010. And then put in a Beck/Palin ticket in 2012. At that point we can flush.

The dastardly effects of the

The dastardly effects of the Obama term will not be fully felt during his reign. The worst will follow and will come when the Republican control Congress. Of course the Dems will quickly blame the Republicans as they are now.
