In the aftermath of politics without democracy
Original post made by hal, another community, on Nov 4, 2010
We have seen Chet point to California voters' rational review and rejection of GOP and Tea Party politics without substance.
We have seen comments from rational, moderate Republicans disgusted with their own party leadership: "There has been two years of GOP no, no, no and the voters ignored that: a. the Bush Admin got us in to this; and, b. the GOP did all they could to avoid improvement, to ensure a Dem failure. The next two years will show the Senate and/or Presidential veto of returning to the old; but, come 2012 the GOP will 'show' that the Dems 'blocked progress'. I fear that handwriting is on the wall. Plus, when the economy improves, the GOP will take credit. You and I know the current status should not be blamed on the Obama admin., but that is just what Tuesday's results show happened."
We have the opportunity for California to set the example of why the GOP and Tea Party are wrong for USAmerica's role in global economy, community and humanity. Cost-cutting strangulation of government and dependance on the greed of financial institutions and corporations will not deliver markets or USAmerican jobs to serve those markets. Such strangulation will deliver depression and a more permanent loss of USAmerica's role in our world.
California will need to lead by example as a world-class economy among our global economy, community and humanity. Let's invite your readers to consider such leadership and what investments must drive our future.
