A couple of weeks ago, the Supreme Court confirmed that the President’s health care law imposes the single largest permanent tax increase in history. Worse, nearly half of this regressive tax will hit the struggling middle class. Add more than 13000 pages of new health care regulations – so far – and it’s easy to see why President Obama’s economy doesn’t create jobs. It’s too busy creating government. We need a new direction, but at every step, the Senate stands in the way. The Solution? Repeal this harmful law so we can get to work putting America back to work.

Corporate influence in our government is so obvious that it’s become impossible to hide. And at the same time, independent of these facts, the elected officials are still people. People want power, otherwise they never would’ve even ran for office in the first place. Votes translate to increased power, not to change. Democrats claim they support civil liberties and helping minorities, riding off the achievements of earlier men. However, they do nothing to enact these changes they speak of. The only reason they make any attempts to help minorities, or women, or gays, or any of the other groups that they claim to represent; is so they can seem like they’re helping, and thus be able to tap these same demographic groups for votes late on. The party system also kind of reminds me of the nations in the novel 1984, who trained their populace to hate the various other political systems in the world, when in actuality their own system was not that different from the one they hated. However, they were psychologically manipulated to be blind to this fact. There are still millions of poor people, and that isn’t the Republicans fault. They blame them, but the
