Republicans Looking Down Ticket...

In fully acknowledging that projecting possible positive outcomes for the democrats have historically "lulled" the knee jerk-lefty-panic stricken-liberals-crybaby types into NOT voting because of the famous:

"Well, it looks like we will be winning anyway so there is no need for me to vote or get involved with turning out the vote beacuse someone else will perform MY responsibilities in supporting my democracy, and of course, OBVIOUSLY, others will vote FOR ME..."

I know how to end debtors prisons

End debt. Make credit cards illegal. You must trade collateral . Demand real wages. Demandsocialized medicine and school for all. Including the 80 year olds, if they wish. End occupation . Bring service men stateside. Ground planes and drones. Make solar energy affordable to all.

Protect the bad at math. Make it illegal to have credit cards. It is abused on both sides.Everyone gets burned eventually.

Republican and perhaps Obama’s Strategy? Keep the public desperate that way they are easier to negotiation with.

Nearly 1 in 2 have fallen into poverty or are scraping by.

By Associated Press WASHINGTON - Squeezed by rising living costs, a record number of Americans — nearly 1 in 2 — have fallen into poverty or are scraping by on earnings that classify them as low income. http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/12/15/9461848-dismal-prospects-1-in-2-americans-are-now-poor-or-low-income

Gauging wealth

A person's wealth should be measured by the wealth and health of those around them. If you stand rich and healthy amongst those who have neither, you represent a failed community.

Almost half in U.S. are poor or low-income.

And all Obama can do is sign the Defense Appropriations Act to use military force against his own American Citizens. Not a good sign.

Its time for Obama to pull some crazy shit to reign in the Republicans.

yea, I know, it will cost obama some cash from special interest groups but the 99% have to live here too

Did Obama give de facto control over the use of the military against the 99% to Special Interests with signing of Defense Appropriations Act?
