Lies and Damned Lies
For the 2010 mid-terms the GOP campaigned on "Jobs, jobs, jobs!", but so far they have yet to propose one, single, solitary bill that would substantially increase employment. And by "substantial" I mean more than just the squadron of $500-an-hour lawyers they hired to fight equal marriage rights for homosexuals.
However, Republican legislatures have been busy. In 30 states they have thus far enacted over 60 laws that would radically restrict voting rights for Democrats, all in the name of protecting us from the dreaded "vote fraud". Which translates to just 96 incidents since 2003 at a cost of millions and millions and millions of dollars.
But no jobs.
They've also gone bananas passing abortion restriction measures, a total of 162 so far this year, an increase of almost 200% over last year. And in just 19 states. Opportunistic little bastards, aren't they?
But no jobs.
Then there's the all-out war the GOP is waging on the middle-class, otherwise known as "union-busting". It's occurring in Wisconsin, Florida, Illinos, Ohio, Michigan, basically wherever a few union dollars might go to progressive election causes. Yes, it's more voter supression and it's also a jobs killer.
This frantic pace is to ensure that as many Democrats as possible cannot vote come election day, that's why it's up to you to understand your state's revised voting laws and be prepared to fight these fucking scum-suckers with every vote possible come election day.
Then, with a Democratic Congress, the jobs drought will end. No prayers needed.
