It never ceases to amaze me. Middle class Americans voting Republican, ain't it a gas? Faux tax cuts, faux promises for affordable healthcare, faux promises for job availabilities, faux promises against "nation building", faux promises for even personal growth potential. What a crock!!!!!!!!! Tim Russert just said it on Larry King Live. In his WWII dad's time he was able to come back home to an economy begging for good factory workers that promised and delivered good paying jobs. In this self-created "service" economy that we have the good paying gigs just aren't there. And as our manufacturing leaves our shores so do the "good paying jobs". We're now delegated to flipping hamburgers or repairing shoddily built apparati. And these jobs are so competitive, locally, they tend to drive wages down, day by day. It's certain that the American middle class will self desruct if this trend continues. Where are we headed? As our energy industries continue to fail us but profit anyway, as our manufacturing industries continue to leave us and continue to profit, as our service industries continue to grow as a natural aftermath to all that and as our wages continue to drop as a result, I think it's time for us to wake up. America will not make it on it's own with a "service" economy. We will always be dependant on the fickleness of others and to the great advantage of the global profitteers while we watch our own economy and means of livelihood dissapate before our very eyes. It's time for a philosophical change in the attitudes and voting habits of our middle class, don't you think?
