Republicans Acknowledge Responsibility for National Debt


Republicans Acknowledge the National Debt

In an historic move, at their National Convention, the GOP acknowledges that is was and is the party that is responsible for the National Debt, referring to the years of the George Bush, Cheney Administration. Citing the fact  that Bush took office when there was no National Debt and there was a surplus of over 10 billion dollars in the government coffers. It took George Bush and Cheney under six years to turn that National Surplus into a multi-trillion dollar deficit!

Clint "make my day" Eastwood talking with the American Public

The GOP feels that just because it wants to restore the same policy of George Bush, the policy that set the wheels in motion, it is no reason not to vote for them. In fact, their guest speaker, “make my day”, Clint Eastwood, who candidly, expressed the American public view of the Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, in a dialogue with an empty chair that represented President Obama and the American people. In that dialogue, when the President and the American people told Clint to tell the Republican candidate to “go frack himself”, Mr. Eastwood told the President and the American public, that that was a physical impossibility.

No new NAFTA-Letter

Dear Editor,

Under the cover of night on Friday, President Obama announced a new NAFTA-style “free trade” deal with Korea — but it’s not all that new. It’s got all the same provisions in it that he vigorously opposed on the campaign trail when George W. Bush originally negotiated the deal. 1

With 15.1 million people currently unemployed in the United States, it is insane to extend the same NAFTAprivileges to Korea that have already ransacked America’s manufacturing sector and decimated our labor force.

President Obama is going to send this NAFTA-style Korea Free Trade deal to Congress very soon. We need to put a stop to this new NAFTA immediately, so Congress needs to hear from you now.

Sign our petition to Congress: “No New NAFTA! Don’t support another job-killing, NAFTA-style ‘free trade’ agreement with Korea.” Click here to add your name.


President Obama says he’s doing this to create jobs.2 As Paul Krugman points out today, it won’t. 3 But killing jobs is just the beginning of what’s wrong with the NAFTA-style Korea Free Trade deal.

Like its job-killing cousins NAFTA and CAFTA, this Korean trade deal would:

  • Allow foreign corporations to operate inside the United States under privileged international trade agreements, rather than having to obey our laws that apply to our businesses. 4
  • Prohibit us from limiting the size of banks, making us give up the right to decide what “too big to fail” is on our own shores
  • Ban the government’s ability to adopt “buy American” policies
  • Prohibit us from banning risky financial goods and services (like derivatives trading), otherwise US taxpayers will have to pay compensation to international companies for the profits they won’t be able to reap from engaging in such transactions
  • Force the United States to submit to the judgment of foreign tribunals
  • Elevate foreign corporations to equal status with the sovereign United States, empowering foreign companies with new rights to sue the U.S. government before the UN and World Bank tribunals, skirting US courts.

Think that can’t happen? To date, US taxpayers have paid out over $400 million in compensation to foreign corporations from such cases under NAFTA. And we spent million in legal costs even on cases we won, with billions more outstanding in unsettled cases. 5

This is a giveaway of American jobs and American sovereignty to foreign corporations. We need Congress to stop the Korea “free trade” deal in its tracks.

No New NAFTA: sign our petition to Congress to stop the NAFTA-style Korea Free Trade deal. Click here to sign:


Make no mistake – the Korea Free Trade deal is as dangerous to America as NAFTA, CAFTA, and the rest of the “free trade” deals. Thanks so much for standing up to this new NAFTA.

Our TV’s, radios, and mailboxes are being inundated with lies and smears against Democrats.

Who’s paying for all those attacks? Rightwing billionaires like the Koch brothers, rightwing corporations like FOX News, even foreign corporations dedicated to stealing our jobs

Who’s “the architect” of this effort? Karl Rove.

Karl Rove stole the White House for George Bush in 2000 by getting 5 Republicans on the Supreme Court to throw out 175,000 votes and appoint Bush. He stole Congress for Republicans in 2002 by forcing a divisive vote for invading Iraq based on his WMD lies. He stole the White House for Bush again in 2004 through phony terror alerts and the Swift Boatsmears against war hero John Kerry.

And now he’s at it again He turned FOX News into a 24x7x365 Republican political machine, and even appears on FOX to smear President Obama personally. He set up a criminal secret slush fund to take millions from billionaires and corporations and spend it all smearing Democrats. (We are urging Attorney General Eric

Holder to investigate and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law

He vigorously defends other corporate slush funds like the Chamber of Commerce.

But we can beat Karl Rove in November, just as we did in 2006 and 2008. Here’s what we must do, starting immediately:

  1. Vote straight Democratic
  2. Tell everyone we know to vote straight Democratic
  3. Even tell strangers to vote straight Democratic

Here are all the resources you need:

In many states, early voting has begun so you don’t have to wait for Election Day. After you vote, you can zap political ads, throw out political mail, and spend your free time telling friends and strangers to vote straight Democratic. This will be good for America, good for your mental health, and good for your soul.

Thanks for all you do!
