There won't be any can kicking. The President has never been FOR kicking the can down the road, he has been trying to invest in all of the areas that will bring our country back into exuberant growth, and his policies have been working, as much as they could, under the Republican Obstruction.

That is going to come to an end, now, because the country has spoken out against Republican failed policies. Sixty Percent are for raising taxes. Even more people are against Ryans plan to voucherize Medicare. The country by a very large margin has stated they do not want Social Security, OR medicare, OR medicaid, touched, but want taxes raised on the wealthy.

This country is clearly on the side of the President, AND the Democratic Party, and their policies, and those approved by the electorate, are as follows:


<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Investing in re-building our infrastructure</span>, which the president has wanted to do, and REpublicans have blocked, and which will create jobs that cannot be outsourced.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Addressing our dependence on foreign oil</span>, which the president is doing, and has been doing, and doing it better, because we have more people looking into any ecological damages, as we go, than before, and we do not have to destroy our national parks to accomplish it.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Addressing Immigration Reform </span>and solving their plight, by turning those worthy, and not involved in criminal activity, into legal tax paying citizens, and into students with a future, not guys on the corner looking to get paid off the book, by scabs who want to cheat the government.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Modernizing our military</span>, long overdue,already underway, and defense spending in this country, over decades has been incredibly wasteful, so it is a real time need, since we spend way too much on defense, and there has always been way too much corruption, and cronyism between the Military, and defense contractors, often led by former Congressmen who become lobbyists when they leave office.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Investing in education</span>, so that those currently unable to fill jobs here, will BE able, and so that we can put an emphasis on Science, building awareness and concensus, which can divert the coming disasters due to global warming, and which is now the fully acknowledged, running explanation on TV, BY the National Weather Services as they explain to the public, the causes of such superstorms as we saw during Sandy.

I might add, the blow hard Science Deniers in the Republican Party, lost their seats, along with the radical "Rapist" idiots.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Creating and supporting policies which address and change the Republican tax policies, which created damaging inequality of wealth, </span>and drag the economy down, by reducing comsumer spending, the loss of which is a result of Republican Policies, and a result of big business, exploiting American workers, and getting loopholes and tax cuts while they're doing it.

To accomplish this, the president has wanted to raise taxes on the wealthy, who do not produce anything but more personal wealth, sit on their money, invest off shore, and are not partiotic enough, to invest first in their own country, instead of outsourcing our jobs, and then getting tax cuts, for caring ONLY about their own wealth. That has to end.

The president wants to invest in the Infrastructure that THEY use, but don't want to pay their fair share for having at their disposal.

Republicans are not in the directors chair, regardless of how they spin it.

Exit polls prove that the country is rejecting Republican Failed Economic Policies, Republican racism, homophobie, and misogyny.

Republicans cannot afford to continue on their former path of obstruction, racism, anti-Science, homophobia, their continued war on women and war on the Middle Class, and if they do, they will pay hugely, come mid terms, and we'll be rid of them in two years, hence, the can is not going to get kicked down the road.

If you can't afford a product at any price because you're not working, who wins?

The taxes also go to building highways, airports,
electrical grids, internet access and many other areas that
make it possible for business to function, as they PRODUCE JOBS.

The "really big-time Republicans on Wall Street" don't care about this and don't want to fund it because they're international players.


They want to make money where ever they can and pay the least
they possibly can. If the American infrastructure declines,
then they'll move their investments somewhere else. The
average working Republican or American businessman should wise
up and see that they're supporting the very people who are
destroying this country to maximize the profits of
international corporations.

Mitt Romney was one of them, and you see where it got him in politics!

The last election indicates that the majority of this country, understands that.

Now, as I have often stated in the past, we will have the chance to drag the Republicans, kicking and screaming, into the future, FINALLY, and begin to address all of the serious problems, which they created, and/or have contimued to deny even exist!

So Yes, Mac, <span style='font-size: 14pt'>YES WE CAN </span>accomplish a great deal, and it isn't going to be like before, because this president NEVER wanted to kick the can down the road, he has been all about long range policies that are going to be good for this country, all along.

You should have used a Republican By-line, for this thread, not YES WE CAN, because we Democrats are all about YES WE CAN, so how about using McConnells unpatriotic, absurd position, for the by-line of this thread:

<span style='font-size: 14pt'> <span style='font-size: 14pt'> Republicans Kicking The Can Down The Road Through Obstruction! </span> </span>

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Our Main Goal (In the midst of this Bush recession, which we Blank check Republicans helped to create, after eight years of spending, lying ad borrowing) is to make Barack Obama a one term president.</span>


Now that would fit as the by-line for kicking the can down the road, since that is all Republicans EVER do, NOT <span style='font-size: 14pt'> YES WE CAN! </span>

Dunno bout kicking the can down the road, or bout handtohand fighting (to a draw), or playing poker (drawing to an inside straight) but praps the two sides can cancan (no drawers).

I predikt that the gridlock will be a bigger story than the election. The superpacs etc will be involved like never before. And it will be like a shakespearean tragedy.

To be or not to be, that iz the question.
Alas, poor usa, i knew her well.
