Why do people vote against their own best interests?
I see this time and time again, listening to what a career politician has to say and believing every word of it.
I've been watching the nasty and polarizing ads from the Bruce Poliquin campaign here in Maine, already fudging the facts and using it against his opponent. You can always tell the one who has the most to lose by the tone of their ads!
Factually, they always seem to forget that their votes are recorded and speak for themselves. He is a man who would gladly take away healthcare from millions simply because the party he is tied to says so. Where are your morals there?
Give the wealthy a tax cut because he is one of them, owned by super-rich donors. He started this campaign with 1.5 million dollars in the bank. Do you think Golden has that kind of money?
We have reached a point (again) in our society where the super rich determine what happens to the other 325 million
living in this country. I know that many of the people who lived through the great depression of "29" to "35" are gone now, so the prospect of anything like that happening again is not on peoples minds. but you had better start reading your history about what lead up to that depression, because we are right there at this point in time.
The income inequality is extremely high, people are one paycheck away from disaster, the stock exchange and the banks are playing the same deadly games and getting away with, for now.
But like "29", they are playing with live sticks of dynamite, due to blow up in their faces any day now!
Personal debt is at an all-time high, students are leaving college with debt so high they'll never be able to repay it and with degrees that really don't mean much in today's society, job wise. Our national debt exceeded 1 trillion dollars this year. That's your money, being fed to the rich.
When are you going to realize that?
When will you stop voting to harm yourselves?
May peace be upon you!
