8. And Democrats take care of poor people


Is a refrain I still hear from elders in Texas. Just listen to Bidenís speeches to unions and youíll get how this is true for working families.

Democrats are better at running the economy, too. If Bush v. Gore hadnít gone down the way it did, maybe banking regulators under a Democratic administration would have reigned things in. Maybe under such, republicans would have placed more value on green energy, rather than insisting on digging around in the dirt for coal and a past that never existed. Then Obama wouldnít have had to cleanup the recession created under dubya AND push for solar/Paris accords so late. If Texas wasnít further gerrymandered to hell in 2012, then maybe the state would have expanded Medicaid, and my friend would have lived to his 34th birthday, and not died in the gap.

Itís simply more complex than one candidateís proposed solutions that lump sliding middle class families like mine in with billionaire-elite-class-establishment speak. I see organized labor as a natural thing to occur in a free market system, and if you think Bidenís speeches to unions are for billionaire donors, then I donít know what else I could say to dispel these cruddy notions of Democrats as being some sort of republicon-lite establishment party that doesnít care about workers.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
