That is an absolutely remarkable vote of no-confidence in Obama's ability to do the job he was elected to do. Yes, I know that Republicans are going to be against virtually everything Obama is for and that independents these days tend to be swollen with the ranks of disaffected GOPers. But, what Obama does have to do is be president for the next two and a half years. And he'd like to spend that time building some sort of second-term legacy for himself. The leadership numbers — if they sustain — badly complicate those efforts. Chris Cillizza, Washington Post
America the Beautiful! White men have lost their place at the top of the hill. It's called social order. They think they lost it when slavery was abolished in 1863. That is not when they lost it. They actually begin to lose their place in the social order, when they waiting 18 months before notifying slaves in the southern states, namely Texas and Louisiana that salvery had been ended by order of the Federal government. As time progressed, white men did less and less, or should I say more and more to try to keep blacks as slaves. Instead of abiding by the new laws, they chose to create new laws to keep their desires legal. The Black Code Laws became part of American policing. The KKK carried out the Black Code Laws. The Freedmans Bureau established to assist slaves in transitioning into citizenship became nothing more than a sham. Peace was not to come between the races based on the pride of poorer white men. Politics was in complete control of legislating what would and could happen to blacks. Police were allowed to create as you go laws and administer judgement as they saw it should be. Prosperity was able to continue based on the desires of those with property ownership. Poverty began to spread even more as a tool for the wealthy to maintain ownership of former slaves. People began to segregate even more than had been during slavery. Power was once again seen in the wealth of the white men. Is there anything different today than in 1863 when slavery was abolished in America. If you have to wait for the approval of politicians, courts, and merchants to have social justics, judicial justice, and economic justice, than not much has change. The change must therefore come by way of we the people. We the working class people of American
One thing your intrepid and always opinionated host on SevsDeadSerious has learned over the many years is that the biggest problem that Democrats and the left have that never seems to bother conservatives on the right is that liberals don't get off their ass to vote. More particularily those inclined to not vote skew twards minorities and the poor...those most affected by the draconian policies of the right. In Hong Kong, where recent protests have crippled the city, 97% of the population votes...In the US we are luck in a mid-term election to see 35% of eligible voters voting. Why are we worried about voter ID laws when most Americans won't get off their ass to vote...it makes NO sense. And don't worry with all the BS here and abroad, there will be plenty more for MOI' to enrapture the multitudes with.
Take this seriously people. WE are all aware of voter suppression, NOW YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO WATCH ANY OF THE DEBATES. That is why it is imperative to vote along party lines. Conservatives want to also keep the population ignorant. That means to them you are not important, it becomes a matter of control, a matter of hi jacking a job. Vote Blue. Vote for the needs of people.. These are some of the POLICIES that are on the ballot, for Democrats....
The decisions we make on these issues over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where opportunity is real.
2) FIGHT FOR EQUALITY
When all Americans are treated as equal, no matter who they are or whom they love, we are all more free.

The progress we’ve made has been hard, sometimes it's been slower than we want, but that progress has been steady and it has been real. We have done big things together, and we're going to do more. And tonight, I want to make something clear: Fixing our broken immigration system is one more big thing that we have to do and that we will do.
4) STAND WITH WOMEN
When women succeed, America succeeds.Equal pay for women.
5) BETTER COVERAGE, LOWER COSTS
After a century of striving, after a year of debate, after a historic vote, health care reform is no longer an unmet promise. It is the law of the land.

Science, accumulated and reviewed over decades, tells us that our planet is changing in ways that will have profound impacts on all of humankind.
