The Underclass poll was very wrong

Updated on May 5, 2011

Political view from the Underclass

January 7, 2011


The Underclass Mid- term poll published October 12, 2010 was so wrong in the predictions of a Democratic landslide victory. I’m so glad the predictions were wrong. If the Democrats had won as predicted the Right Wing rhetoric (Sharon Angle’s second amendment remedy),   and disinformation would have cause much more division and confusion among the American people. There is a blessing wrapped up in the burden of the Democrat’s defeat in the House. The Republicans didn’t win the house in the midterm elections, the Republicans say the people gave them the House because they want them to repeal Obama Care and stop financial reform of Wall Street. They claim the people’s biggest concern is to make sure insurance companies, bankers and financial speculators are allowed the freedom to make money without Government oversight. The American People rejected the Republican’s claim of finally “Getting It” after not Getting It the last decade. The people found another platform to stand on other than the Republican platform. Conservatives, Liberals and other diverse people embraced the Tea Party and the Republicans reluctantly embraced the Tea Party as a wing of the G.O.P.   The Democrats has had to work with Blue Dogs and Yellow Dogs during this administration. The Republican’s Steps has been unlocked and they have their Red Dogs in the house. I believe that is good for the American people and progress is possible without Democratic control of both Houses.

The American people shouldn’t hear again from the Republican Party between now and the election of 2012 that their ideas are being discounted. The Republicans have a majority in the house and a majority of governors. The ideas coming from the white house and the state houses will be Republican and Right Winged. When the tens of thousands of state workers in states across the nation are the first casualty of Fiscal Conservatism based on Republican Ideas, the people will began to understand what happened in the 2010 mid-term election. Health Care, Education, and State jobs will be taken from the people to cut state budgets. The same cuts will be made on the federal level. The Republican leaders in the White House must first come up with some ideas that make sense. It seems that they were surprise they won the House. They don’t seem to know what to do or say, so they read the Constitution out loud on the floor of congress. That was historic. Their next great idea is to vote without discussion to appeal health care like they said they would in their new promise to their people. The Republican majority speaker said nothing is off the table, not even the defense budget. I wonder where the cuts will start. Will the cuts began with health care funding? Only time will tell. It is so much easier to complain than it is to explain. Obstruction isn’t as hard as construction.

The President needs help from his party leaders. He don’t need whisperers, he needs loud and aggressive promotion of the Democratic Party and its policies and achievements. The Republicans claim achievements they never made. They claim achievements of dead Presidents and a living Constitution. The Democrats must loudly point out the Republican deceptions every time they attempt to deceive the people. For instance, If a Democratic leader couldn’t control his or her emotion and loudly and aggressive shouted HELL NO to a Republican idea, he or she would be exposed to the American people as a weeper. They play to win, not nicely, but by any means. Democrats don’t seem to learn from their mistakes. They should keep their eyes on the ball for the next two years.

    I have not seen any Liberals in the Tea Party. I have seen a lot of racism! You need to read my Sacky's HUBS!

    Many people in the Tea party would agree with your comment, and understand they were lied to by the Republican party. Thanks, for the comment.

    Well we had better be partisan. With what the GOP Governors are doing around the country we are loosing the America we know tand the rights it took so long to acquire. We had better have a Democratic landslide in 2012!

    Fay, the partisan foolishment is used as a distraction by the rich and powerful to confuse the masses. Mr Happy is a unselfish man who tells the plain and simple truth. He as you and I really care about others. Thanks for revising this sleeping hub.

    Democrats or Republicans - it's all the same thing. Both parties get funded by the same lobbyists more or less. No party offers any real, substantial change that would lift the veil of financial slavery.

    It really is inconsequential whether a Democrat or a Republican is in power these days. (See my blog: for more details if interested.)

    You got that too huh? Bill Maher said it better than anyone so far, the President needs to be a bit more "Shug" Night in how he's dealing with the other side. I wrote a hub a good while back about this very issue. The democrats went about the first 2 years as though ALL of that landslide in 2008 came directly from the democratic side of the country. Big mistake! conservatives tired of all of the spending and corporate coddling crap, LOANED the President a vote. The same with Independents. The only good thing about 2010 for the democrats is that within the first week after the elections, we got to see that they didn't learn much from 08. Nice Hub. See you out there!

    this was also somewhat enjoyable to read regardless of the poor grammar used herein. I think the dems have plenty of folks SCREAMING quite loudly about their "accomplishments", like passing HCR that a MAJORITY of their constituents did NOT want. At least the new repub house majority is LISTENING to the will of the people instead of telling the citizens they are too damn dumb to even know what is good for them, like the dems ALWAYS do!!!!

    there is a lot of stuff said in this HUB ... so - I will attach my attention to the end of this diatribe where it says:

    Democrats don’t seem to learn from their mistakes. They should keep their eyes on the ball for the next two years.

    To assume that they should keep their eye on the ball would mean that they can find the right ball to focus on - as I see it - they Can NOT

    To find the ball they need to focus on would mean they are learning from their mistakes and in my opinion they haven't
