Forum Post: Do not vote for any Republicans, not one thing they want will help the 99%

It's really hard to be non-partisan when ALL Republicans want to do everything that will kill the middle class and make the poor even poorer.

Here is a list:

Eliminate Social Security

Eliminate Medicare and medicaid

Eliminate Welfare, Food Stamps, WIC, and the VA

Eliminate all Unions, but especially the teacher's unions.

Eliminate public education

Eliminate the 'job-killing' EPA

Then they want a flat tax, or a fair tax, or 9-9-9, all of which means the 1% pays a lot less and the 99% pays much more.

They don't even want to vote to continue the middle-class tax cut that gives families who make $35,000 an extra $750 a year.

They don't want money going to any of those entitlement programs because they haven't figured out how to make money in those areas.

They do know very well how to make profits from the sales of war machines and accessories.

We can say we are non-partisan, but to be for anything on this list is to tell the 99% to go blank themselves.

Anytime you make a blanket statement ("...for ANY..."; "...ALL...") you are behaving in a partisan manner. (Webster's definition: 1: a firm adherent to a party, faction, cause, or person; especially one exhibiting blind, prejudiced, and unreasoning allegiance).

Each and every one of us 99% has the responsibility to use facts, and facts ONLY, to shine the light on the inequities on our economy, our government, and the undue influence of the rich & powerful. We have the responsibility to educate ourselves on the candidates and issues and vote for the CANDIDATE, NOT the PARTY - whatever it's called.

Anytime you do not hold a person accountable for his/her behavior you give them the power to do what they want. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. As long as we are content to form our beliefs and make our choices based on sound-bites and biased news sources we have no one but ourselves to blame if someone else takes over OUR government.

The left and the right are both puppets working for the same corporations with mostly the same agenda with a TON of ignorant sheep following them blindly. You have got to be tarded if you think Banker Master Obama is friend to a movement against the criminal bankers Obama works for. Watch Obama deception on YouTube. In Fact Ron Lawl is the only guy running who said he liked some of OWS ideas and treated them with respect!

Could you point to where you are deriving what you are presenting as "facts"? Just out of fairness.

BTW - did you know our arms sales have been at record levels under the current administration? Do you know the party of the current administration?

Don't vote for the Republicans. They are really the American Fascist Party.
