Today, I'm going to reveal to all Presidential Candidates the view of the American Dream by the vast majority of the American Public
Barack Obama is fully aware of this. However, Mitt Romney doesn't have a clue. I doubt Romney or any of his handlers read my blog, but I'm going to give them the answer. I want to see if any of them are paying attention. I doubt it, because to date, it is very obvious, all they care about is the Very Rich 1 percenters. They care about Wall Street and Wall Street Bankers. They don't care about us, We the People.
However, I'm going to give them the answer, just in case they want to reach us.
Mr. Romney, here is the answer. Right in front of you. All you have to do is read and listen.
The American Public wants one thing. They want to be happy. They want to be at peace. They want to be treated equally. Just like anyone else. They want to be safe, at home, to love their family. That's all. Nothing. else. THIS is the American Dream. None of us want a big house or a golf course or a new car to make us happy. Sure, those things are nice to have, but no one expects them. We just want to be happy and free to enjoy our family and our friends.
We all know it takes hard work to achieve the American Dream. None of us expects a free ride. We all know that Education is the great equalizer. Those of us in the workforce know that a college degree is important. If you expect to advance, you need one. Otherwise, you will stay at your current level with little to no hope of ever advancing. We want better for our children. We want them to get a degree so they can advance.
Mr. Romney, what you are totally missing is, none of us expect to be millionaires like you. We don't expect to live on a golf course or live in a million dollar dream house. That is NOT our Dream.
Additionally, we don't want to be a burden to our children when we are too old to work. We have paid into Social Security all of our lives and we want and expect that Social Security and Medicare will be there when we reach 66.
Regarding the rich, We don't care that they are rich, but we do understand that many of the very rich are very different than the majority of us. The big business owners are different. For years we have been watching them earn millions and millions in bonuses and stock options. We also have been watching them complain about regulations that have been saving our lives. OSHA puts in place safety standards. Look at what has been happening in the "Fracking" industry. How many lives are lost without regulations?
Another major issue: Outsourcing overseas. I personally know of dozens of IT organizations that are routinely outsourcing to India, Canada, Europe and Latin countries. We know they only pay them $1 an hour with no benefits. We know they have no safety regulations. We know this makes their profits even bigger. We also know the more jobs we outsource, the fewer taxpayers we have paying into Social Security. Everyone knows that. Why don't you? You would think you and all of Congress would figure out a way to keep the jobs HERE in the U.S. so that we have more taxpayers paying into Social Security. We think you should figure out a way that those who SELL to us American Buyers would BASE their Jobs HERE in America!
Mr. Romney, our President is very aware of these issues. Why aren't you? Why do you continually cater to Big Business and the Tea Party advocates?
I am also a bit suprised middle and lower income Tea Party members have succumbed to all of this rhetoric. I know several Tea Party members. Most of them ARE on social security or have kids who are on assistance, and NONE of them are Minorities. Most of them do not know or understand the issues nor do they know how the Republican Agenda you are advocating will impact their lives. If Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid are taken away, they will be devastated. They have been successfully brainwashed by your side. None of them understand the impact your Republican Agenda will have on their lives. They don't understand that privatizing Social Security will mean they will have NO guarantees for their future. Privatizing Social Security is just like the current 401K retirement process they have with thier curent employer. There ARE NO GUARANTEES that anything will be there when they are too old to work. All this means is you are stuffing the pockets of the Private Providers of these plans. All the middle/lower income Tea Partiers know is what they are told by the puppets of the 1 percenters on Fox News.
I know the mindset of these Tea Party members. They are driven by their view of Barack Obama. Their views are based on the fact he is black. Their deep seated hatred of African Americans drives much of their agenda. It is truly is a very, very sad state of affairs. I wish I could do something to change their mindset. I cannot.
Mr. Romney, based on your Far Right agenda and your political ads to date, it is clear you are not a viable candidate for President of our United States of America. Unless you become enlightened, We the American People have only One Choice for President, and that is re-electing our current President, Barack Obama.
