Getting What They Want
What does the Democratic base want? Think about this in your own heads. Now, think about what the Republican base wants. Of the two bases, which party is most likely to give their base what they want? Better yet, which party has certain key societal sectors in its corner, to help convince their base that keeping gays from marrying, or blacks from getting government aid, or rich people and corporations from having to pay taxes, is much more desirable than good jobs, universal and affordable health care, and a pollution-free environment?
Democrats have to directly appeal to working class and middle class people, those who might be won back, and present a program which will give them a chance of financial security, guaranteed and affordable healthcare and a real education for their children. The Republicans and their kept press will yell 'class warfare' but as their position deteriorates the working class and sinking middle class will know that the war started a long time ago and they are getting shafted. We can't wait for the official depression to
start. We've got to start pointing out that for most Americans the depression started years ago.
I have tried this, but each head comes up with its own answer. ;-)
