The election will soon be upon us in November. Both political parties have just finished their national conventions and soon the debates will be held. I think the Democratic National Convention was very inspirational event. The speakers gave motivating, informative,and at times humorous speeches. On the other hand the Republican National Convention fell woefully short of inspiring and giving any plan on how to move this country forward. The GOP does not want to move forward. It seems they want move this country backward. Why?
The only thing that matters to the GOP is money, power, and control. There is nothing they have to offer to the nation. What they are doing is withholding the truth. The truth is they want to use fear to divide the nation by saying those people are not like us. They aren’t Americans or they aren’t Christians. Those people are taking your jobs or they want handouts by getting welfare. Those people are a threat to your way of life. However; most of those people have to work two or three low paying jobs to make ends meet. Those people don’t have healthcare. How can those people be a threat?
The GOP, it is these people who are the threat, by using race and religion to divide the nation. These tactics may have served them well in the last century. However; in the 21st century their actions have been exposed through social media and technology. This has made the planet a much smaller world and things are happening in real time.
Still, the people who support the GOP, refuse to see these fraudulent actions. The religious right who subscribe to the conservative views are a good example. In the book of Acts 28:27 “For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.”
This nation needs healing, and in the middle of this economic recovery, we don’t need the Republican Tea Party ripping the scab off. Most people in this nation work for living and need decent wages to support their families. The aging population will need Social Security and Medicare. People will get sick and need affordable healthcare.
Why does the Republican Party want to freeze wages, take away Medicare, and repeal affordable healthcare? I think the GOP sees the middle class as those people.
