Not your Daddys Democrat Party


The Democratic Party's "loudest voices" cannot be seen as denigrating the United States and its economic system. Some of the new voices in the party - including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) - are putting forth policies that are unrealistic.

The government simply cannot afford everything they’re promising. ... Who’s going to pay for it? You can’t get enough money out of the top one percent to pay for this. It’s going to be the middle class.

Work and "earn it" are NOT dirty words!!! Our economic system has worked for most of the American people. It's working for most of the American people today. Unemployment is at a very low level.

Ask not what can your country do for you, but ask what can you do for your country.....

The BEST thing to do for your country is to REJECT the message that this country OWES you more than life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

It don't OWE you a living wage
It don't OWE you a free college education
It don't OWE you healthcare
It don't OWE you an income, even if you won't work.
It don't OWE you some of other peoples money.
It don't OWE your payoff of college debts.

Good blog. I believe a lot of older, more sensible Democrats cringe at what they are hearing is the "heart" of their party these days.

For me to be upset by your criticism, I must first value your opinion.

Sure Block, "It don't OWE you a living wage" ..

Have you ever run a business? It's not a right it's a privilege. A privilege contingent on you following some rules.

Maybe you would like to change Labor Law, or just do away with it altogether. Do ya think McDonalds ought to be able to pay employees with hamburgers? The government gives out free phones and rent money and pays utilities anyway. No problem. Huh

"Other peoples money" …

If you're on Medicare you're getting a hell of a lot of other people's money.

No the government don't owe you a living wage. You owe it to yourself to get a job that pays you well. People who complain about the wages usually don't have a whole lot of ambition.

It's got nothing to do with ambition. Take a look at world history …

The seven wonders of the world, the great castles, churches and gardens, Mt. Vernon, etc etc etc … built by slave labor. Most of what's great in the world was built by slave labor. That's the way it was, until governments got involved in Labor Law.

In the Obama era we have more than 47 million people getting free food. We have people who’ve been collecting unemployment checks, not for a matter of weeks, but for years. We have government provided phones, and the list goes on.

What happened to personal responsibility? In a caring society we help someone when they are knocked down. If someone needs help for a couple of months while they find a new job, of course we help, but the perpetual class that doesn’t work, doesn’t’ pay for their own food, doesn’t pay for their own housing and now doesn’t think they should have to pay for utilities like water or electricity? We owe them nothing.

Toyota has upped its investment in US plants by $13 billion dollars and adds another 600 manufacturing jobs. Besides this there a lot of American companies bringing back jobs to the US. Polaris, Caterpillar, Dow Chemical just a name a few.
