Forum Post: Consider the last 7 years. OK OK 6+ years then. But one really could look at the last 40 or so.

Now - disregarding Oh-Bummer and his insane push for the TPP.
Let's have a reality check.
Who forwarded issues that would benefit the people?
Who roadblocked those issues (legislation)?
Now - consider.
When the democrats in office had the majority - was it a large enough majority to get past rethuglican roadblocks?
(yes I called them rethuglicans - not to dis real republican people - but to point out the fact that those assholes in office do not represent "at all" the public they are supposed to)
Now considering that you may have answered correctly (that last question) - that no the dems never had a large enough majority to get past the roadblocks placed before them.
What do you think should be done in the next election cycle?
a) leave things just as they are because the last 7 years were just a freak aberration - and so just opt out as no change is needed.
b) vote in more dems ( not red state rethuglicans' with the D designation) to insure a successful majority.
c) elect more rethuglicans cause it makes sense that they were only unwilling to work with the dems in support of the people - never mind that all of their legislation has been against the average individual and has all been catering to the wealthy.
Your answer here _
I chose "b" - but HEY a lot of mutts will tell ya that it is because I am a die hard dem.
What did you choose?
I ask - because though the answer might seem pretty damned obvious - many people will none the less choose to vote against their best interests. I think that this is because that they have not to this point in time been following what actually happens in government.
Worse they will believe it when they are told it was the other guys fault.
