I’m reffering to Buddy Roemer. He gets it, He understands. He has progressive views and isn’t afraid to speak the truth. There is no wonder why the GOP has disowned, and ostricized him. He remains to declare himself a republican mainly due to being a republican has become a hard-to-shake-off habit . The reality is he is either a progressive or a Democrat, or both, who simply can’t force himmself to come out as either.
Partisanship is nowhere in his DNA, he has no problem calling out either party when he sees a real problem, or true failings. When he speaks about the addiction of both parties to special interest money and influence, I can see Dylan Rattigan on one of his rants. Buddy is for real, and the only place he can get any respect or exposure is on MSNBC. The biased networks won’t have him, he’s much too sensible to make good TV. He speaks about the issues; how money has corrupted the congress and all of our government, he speaks about why positive change can’t come about and the reasons why, he speaks about income inequality, not the GOPnutz talking points.
Buddy Roemer is one of the best hidden gems in the GOP, and one of their best kept secrets as a presidential candidate. I actually lived through a Buddy Roemer governorship when I lived in La. and as I recall he was a damn good governor. He lost his bid for re-election mainly because he was outbid by the big-money candidate, because he wasn’t conservative (corruptable) enough for the special interest money.If we ever have to have a republican president again, “The Buddy Plan” wouldn’t be a horrible thing, at least not as horrible as one of the candidates in the current “Clown Crew”.
The report found that 46.2 million Americans were living in poverty, the highest amount since the Census began recording the statistic 52 years ago.
“The middle class is collapsing and we have now by far the most unequal distribution of wealth and income of any major country on earth,” Sanders said.
“We need aggressive action on the part of the president and the Congress, and if the Republicans continue to say ‘no, no, no to jobs,’ the president has got to continue going around the country,” he added, “because I think the overwhelming majority of the people want a jobs program, they want to protect Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, they do not want to give any more tax breaks to the wealthy and large corporations.”
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN TRUTH AND REALITY GETS EXTREMELY PISSED, AS WE ALL SHOULD HAVE BEEN A LONG TIME AGO. IT’S STILL NOT TOO LATE…IT’S TIME TO QUIT SITTING ON OUR ASSES AND TWEETING . WE HAVE TO GET ON OUR FEET IN THE STREETS. WE ALL KNOW NOW THAT OBAMA IS TOO MUCH OF A WHIMP TO FIGHT. HELL, HE WON’T EVEN SPEAK IN LESS THAN A VERY POLITE TONE. CONGRESS WON’T GET ANYTHING DONE. THEY HAVE ALL BEEN CASTRATED BY THE MONEY. DYLAN WAS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT WHEN HE SAID THAT CONGRESS IS BOUGHT AND PAID FOR, AND IT’S NOT JUST ONE SIDE, BOTH SIDES ARE FULLY OWNED AND OPERATED BY THE BANKS, THE CORPORATIONS AND AS MANY SPECIAL INTEREST FUNDING GROUPS AS YOU CAN COUNT. THE PRESIDENT DON’T WORK FOR US, CONGRESS DOESN’T WORK FOR US, NO-ONE WORKS FOR US. WE ARE THE ONLY ONE’S WHO CAN WORK FOR US. I WISH IT WERE POSSIBLE TO GET EVERY ONE TO VOTE FOR “NO-ONE” IN 2012. WATCH THIS VIDEO, AND YOU’LL BE AS ANGRY AND MOTIVATED AS I FEEL RIGHT NOW. WE COULD JOIN AN ORGANIZATION ALREADY IN EXISTANCE, OR WE COULD FORM OUR OWN. YOU’RE DAMN RIGHT, DYLAN, I’M PISSED TOO. AND IT’S TIME TO GET ACTION FROM OUR BROKEN, AND INNEFECTIVE GOVERNMENT…… PLEASE TAKE THE POLL AFTER YOU WATCH THE VIDEO.
