Here we are, one day before election day.
Only one more day and the robo phone calls will come to an end.
One more day and the seemingly endless election punditry on cable TV will come to an end. Well, actually it won't come to an end but the predictions of the Republican blowout and the Democrat rout will end.
Before you go to the polls tomorrow (and please, DO VOTE), remember this:
The Republicans main goal is to destroy president Obama's presidency and make him a one term president.
The Republicans, if they gain power, will ONLY do the following:
Lower taxes for the rich. Don't kid yourself and think they will lower taxes for schlubs like you and me. They will only lower taxes for the rich and they will call it "lowering taxes for small business."
The Republicans will attempt to do away with as much regulation as they can. They don't want government regulation of anything except perhaps if you are gay, then they don't want you serving in the armed forces. Some Republicans don't even want you to teach school. In fact, most Republicans just want gays to go away. Don't kid yourself, that's what they want.
The Republicans will attempt to dismantle as many government run programs as they can. Just some of the programs they have targeted are:
Department of Education
They like the Defense Department. Count on seeing Star Wars resurrected. Laser beams in the sky. Oh yes indeed.
On the other hand, vote for the Democrats and, perhaps the best you can hope for is that some programs stay in place like Social Security and Medicare. Don't hold your breath on any new programs or the repeal of DADT or DOMA. The Democrats and President Obama will do NOTHING during the next two years. Don't kid yourself.
Do I sound cynical? Absolutely I am cynical. Unless you're one of the moneyed special interests, don't expect anything out of either political party for the next two years.
But do vote. The Democrats are the lesser of the two evils........this time around anyway. Then it's Sarah Palin's turn.
