An interesting little HuffPo article by Robert Creamer is pulled by Memeorandum, asking people to visualize what Romney World would look like if he’s elected
My wife, Jan Schakowsky, and I are friends with a wonderful woman named Bea. Bea is now 95 years old. Bea was born in 1917.
She was born in a country where women couldn’t vote. In some areas of the country, just fifty years before, slavery had been legal. Collective bargaining was not recognized under the law. Poverty was rampant – especially among the country’s oldest citizens.
Bea was born in a country where there was an unimaginable gulf between a few fabulously wealthy oligarchs, and the masses of ordinary people. It was a country where only a tiny fraction of the population ever went to college – or even graduated from high school – a country were hardly anyone was considered “middle class.” It was a country where there were few regulations to protect health and safety on the job, no national child labor laws, no federal minimum wage, and very little to prevent corporations from recklessly destroying the environment.
Bea was born in a country where people of color were considered second-class citizens and discrimination against them was enshrined into law – a country where gays and homosexuals could be prosecuted for their sexual orientation.
Bea was born in the United States of America.
Ever notice that Democrats can never seem to find something nice to say about America? Anyhow, Robert says Bea was engaged with many great things during her life
She was active building the labor unions that build the middle class. won a living wage, weekends and a 40-hour work week, pensions for retirement, and the passage of Social Security and Medicare that ensured a retirement free of poverty. (labor unions that have artificially increased the cost of business and create thugs, and SS and Medicare are pretty much insolvent)
She marched with the civil rights movement that gave people of color an equal status in American society. (she must have been a Republican at that point, since most Dems were against the Civil Rights Act)
Bea became a public school teacher and helped educate an ever-expanding number of ordinary Americans – watching more and more of them go on to college to fulfill their dreams. (If their dream is now to graduate with massive debt while competing with tons of people to flip burgers in the Obama Economy. Oh, and indoctrination)
Robert goes on this vein, talking about how evil and mean and stuff Romney is, and trying to highlight what a Romney presidency would look like. The same old Liberals whines, thinking that women will be put back in the kitchen, Blacks will be put back on the plantation, only the rich will get an education, etc. Interesting, Robert cannot provide one shred of pro-Obama evidence to support voting for Obama. That’s not particularly surprising, since if one wants to imagine what an Obama win in 2012 would look like one simply has to look back at the past 4 years. What would it bring?
Those are just a few measures. We simply need to look at the last 4 years. What would a Romney presidency look like at the end of 4 years?
Those are just a few reasons to vote Romney. Do you want to continue down the road to Greece, or move forward to bringing America back to its great days? Do you want a president who talks of revenge, or do you want a president who works non-stop to increase the prosperity of Americans?
