Calling All Underdogs!

    Obama came in to help the American People with a special focus on the underdogs who had apparently lost hope. He wanted to bring hope and change. And he has implemented health care insurance capabilities for them. He has done other things for them … what, I am not aware of …

    Maybe the underdogs know ... Yes?
    Who are the underdogs?
    How CAN they be helped?

    Wondering

      1. Economically-middle class

      2. In this society an 'underdog' is reflecting the plight of those traditionally considered at the middle class or below.

      3. President Obama and the Democrats more consistently promote policies for the benefit of the middle class and less affluent as opposed to the focus on what benefits the wealthy/corporate class minority.

      4. The government assists by promoting economic policies with the great middle in mind and not the 'Thurston Howell's III"

        This is one answer to the question regarding who the underdogs Obama, specifically, wanted to help.
        Are there other answers?
        Yes or no?

        I might have gotten that from watching reruns of "Gilligan's Island", but not on the Pew Social Trends, ABC, NBC, CNN, Huffington Post, NY Times, US News, Washington Post or Fox News.

        BREAKING NEWS:  The middle class in America is shrinking.  Being that the middle class has been the backbone of American, I'm sorry to say that the doctor's reports are not good. America is suffering from backbone diseases called Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis.  The symptoms are painful, thinning, weakening, fracturous, and debilitating onsets that ObamaCare doesn't cover but adds to the prolonged decay and decline like a disease itself.

    How can we fight these economical tyrannies?
    What did Obama originally set out to do?
    Is he not on the appropriate path?
    Why not?
    What path could he be taking?

      "Is he not on the appropriate path?"

      As with Obama we place too much faith in the system with a President who can change the direction or path that benefits most of us. Unfortunately we saddle the President with a heartless greedy bunch of criminals and lawyers to help him do it. The dichotomy is far too great for a compromise to be reached. The demonization by both sides of each other turn anything into a just a numbers game with little reasoning left to be had.

      The system needs a change and we can't have it all our way as compromise is based on reason and not shouting matches. The system is broken and far from what was intended and maybe is what our forefathers feared.

        Yes, can the parties ever realize they can benefit each other toward the goal of deciding upon appropriate benefits and boundaries.
        We need freedom and love, we boundaries and logic!

          They are already playing a game to benefit themselves the most. If it falls in line with their agenda they will unite. And as we have seen the pork is where the money is made. As long as that is preserved they will agree on anything for their own profit.

    White supremacy
    the belief that white people are superior to those of all other races, esp. the black race, and should therefore dominate society.

    This is not a good belief.
    Only idiots would believe such a thing. Germany is still embarrassed to this day about indulging in such nonsense under Adolf Hitler's influence.
    Who would believe in this today? Especially in America?
    Nobody.
