This week’s show
On the day President Obama got inaugurated a meeting with the most powerful Republicans and their operatives was held to attempt to destroy his presidency at all cost. This story is a story that was well known and rarely reported to the masses.
The fact is that most of President Obama’s policies have been Center Right policies; from the Affordable Care Act, to tax policy, to economic policy. Continuous objections by Republicans to his policies in general are effectively objections to many of their own policies. Republicans have moved so far to the Right that Center Right policies to them seem Liberal.
Imagine if Republicans had decided to be a partner to President Obama. Imagine if the stimulus was $1.2 Trillion instead of $800 billion. Imagine if the President’s infrastructure build out was effected. Imagine if we had a single payer healthcare system as opposed to a system that had to adapt to Frankenstein.
If those with a voice were not timid or fearful to speak up we would not have lost 5 years of stunted growth. For too long in an attempt to seem fair and balanced a false equivalence was forced on the national dialogue. In doing so a disservice was effected on Americans. That failure allowed the election of neo-confederate insurrectionists. The shutdown and all the damage done to the economy and to America’s respect around the world is a direct result.
Going forward all those with a voice must make no attempt for balance because of some false equivalence. The traditional media dropped the cloak of false equivalence temporarily as Republicans almost destroyed the country. Unfortunately as the country steps back from the brink many of the old habits are back.
Everyone reading this post has a voice. Use it. Do not depend on the traditional media, the corporate media to message. Spread the truth through your social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc), and your physical networks (churches, mosques, synagogues, coffee shops, grocery stores, etc.). No one is carrying the ball for the working middle class. You must.
Please check out the mini documentary ‘Legalize Democracy’. It is entertaining and hard hitting. It describes America’s dilemma. It is a call to action.
Give me a call. Let’s talk.
