OBAMA 23 – ANYONE ELSE 37

In a poll released today, by Bloomberg, 30% of all those polled said they definitely will vote for Obama in 2012.  36% said they definitely will not.  Among likely voters the numbers are even more striking.  Only 23% said they definitely will vote for Obama while 37% said they definitely will not.  The Republican Party doesn’t need to win; they only need not to lose.

Tennis is said to be a Loser’s Game.  By that it’s meant that it’s the loser, not the winner, who determines the outcome.  The loser blows it and gives the game away.  The moral is, if you want to win just return the ball, don’t try to blow your opponents socks off.  In that case the coach should say, Mrs. Palin, Mr. Paul you’re out.  Look for Democrats to vote to nominate Palin in those states that allow cross voting for party nominations.  It could be their only hope.

Of course all this is predicated on an unstable foundation; which is that the economy doesn’t show much improvement in the next sixteen months.  A week is an eternity in politics.  But right now an election would be a landslide.

GROWTH OF GOVERNMENT IS DEMOCRACY’S DESTINY

The Vicious Cycle

No worker wants to see his employer downsized. Downsizing brings job insecurity and lessened opportunity for those employed. Government employees at all levels realize it’s the Democratic Party that fights for growth and expansion of government, and with it, security and opportunity for the government worker. The Democratic Party is the party for the government, of the government and by the government.

The rest of the people pay for the salaries and benefits enjoyed by government employees. The Republican Party calls for limited government, reduction of government expenditures and lower taxes. The Republican Party is the party of the rest of the people.

The recent passage of the 26 billion dollar funding bill is a prime example of the vicious cycle at work. It was promoted by the Administration as a bill to fund salaries for teachers, police, firemen and first responders, which indeed it was, government workers all.

The bigger government gets, the more people there are who vote for bigger government. Democracy is a fragile system. This is just one of its vulnerabilities.

STATE FUNDING BILL SPENDS 26B ON GOVERNMENT

The Democratic Party is the party of the government, for the government and by the government. The Republican Party is the party of the rest of the people.

Government is the civic worker’s employer. The Republican Party calls for downsizing of government. Downsizing brings job insecurity and lessened opportunity for workers on a government payroll. The Democratic Party, on the other hand, fights for growth and expansion of government. For those employed by government the Democratic Party offers greater job security and an increased measure of opportunity. Thus it is reasonable and natural that the Democratic Party would be the party of the government.

Today’s passage of the 26B dollar State funding bill is a prime example. It was promoted by the Administration as a bill to send money from the Federal government to the State governments for payment of salaries to teachers, police, firemen and first responders, government workers all.

The Republican Party argues for growth in all areas, except government. In the matter of job security, the Republican Party is the party of everyone other than government employees. In that sense, it is the party of the people.

Herein lie the makings of a vicious cycle. The bigger government gets, the more people there are who vote for bigger government. Democracy is a fragile system. This is just one of its vulnerabilities.
