Republicans are betting that you don't care - that after all you did to beat them in 2006 and 2008, you're going to sit this one out.Of course, Social Security is a horrible policy that will let down and screw millions of elderly that were counting on it. As far as property rights, you should be able to do whatever the hell you want on your ownprivate property, including banning clowns like Kerry from it.
So they're whipping up their base by blocking help to unemployed workers, blocking summer jobs for teens, apologizing to the big companies that gave us the spill in the Gulf, and doing anything else they can do to stop progress. They're betting that they can excite their radical base and you won't respond.
The stakes? Look no further than the truly radical candidates we're up against. Down in Kentucky, it's would-be Senator Rand Paul. Yes, that Rand Paul, who says freedom means a private business can discriminate against African-Americans, and that President Obama holding polluters accountable for the mess in the Gulf is "un-American."
And he's not alone. All across the country, the Republican Party has turned dangerously radical. One candidate calls Social Security "horrible policy"...
Kerry should really just stay on his own property. And if he wants to tax someone other than himself, he should tax and tax and tax his very wealthy, Heinz ketchup fortune heiress, wife and see how that works for awhile.
