Despite Citizen’s United…. despite voter suppression… despite fear mongering, race-baiting, blatant lies and CEO threats to fire workers if President Obama was re-elected… the America People rejected the same trickle down policies that destroyed the economy twice in a century and chose to move the country forward.
President Obama may not a liberal… but he’s certainly not a Plutocrat. The American electoral system is deeply corrupted by money. Republicans enable that corruption because they benefit from it. The fundamental rot in the system is money. Republicans (wholly owned) and Democrats (partially owned) are the symptom of this rot, not the disease. Public financing of campaigns would be the first step towards empowering true representatives of the people.
In the meantime, from student loan reform… credit card reform… children’s health care expansion… equal pay for equal work… repeal of don’t ask don’t tell… rescue of the auto industry… 9/11 health bill… national service expansion… health reform… and more… we’ve maintained our gains.
Watch: Rachel Maddow break down a list of President Obama’s accomplishments:
George Washing said,
“As Mankind becomes more liberal, they will be more apt to allow that all those who conduct themselves as worthy members of the community are equally entitled to the protections of civil government. I hope ever to see America among the foremost nations of justice and liberality.”
Election day is not the end, it is the beginning. Real activists know the true work takes place every day. Let’s continue to push the President in the direction to fulfil the promise of a more egalitarian, more perfect, more liberal, union that works for all – not just the 1%.
