Is this the Big Picture of today's democrat party?
Democrat President Wilson (1913-1918) said, “You are not here merely to make a living. You are here to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, and with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world. You impoverish yourself if you forget this errand.” He may have been the first democrat to appreciate the potential use of multiculturalism (“If it’s white or American, trash it!”) in deconstructing the Constitution, saying, “No nation is fit to sit in judgment upon any other nation.” Obama put it this way (without using a teleprompter!): "Every nation is exceptional in its own way."
Democrat President Roosevelt (1933-1945) “let it all hang out” in his speech before Congress on January 11, 1944:
“We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights...” which included:
-The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation
-The right of every family to a decent home
-The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health
-The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment.
Democrat President Johnson’s Great Society became the largest redistribution of wealth program in our history. Obama has thrust national healthcare upon us, the hallmark of all socialist and welfare states.
25 years ago none of the above was common knowledge. It is only because of more honest, unbiased reporting on the Internet, talk radio and Fox News (all non-existent 25 years ago!) that today we know that the democrat party has been gradually changing America into a European style welfare state.
-2/4/10 Gallup poll: 61% of liberals have a positive view of socialism.
-6/2/11 Gallup poll: 71% of democrats favor re-distributing wealth.
-Now they have national health care, the foundation of all welfare and socialist states.
And Obama’s economy reflects his party’s aspirations:
Obama said, "I can say that 14 days after I signed our Recovery Act into law, we are seeing shovels hit the ground." (3/3/09 http://www.upi.com/Top_News/2009/03/03/O…
Since he bragged about that, three and a half years later the unemployment has been over 8.1%.
Maybe he meant “Shovel ready jobs for government union workers”?
-7/8/11 U. S. News Report (usnews.com): The actual number of private sector jobs decreased since 2008. Government jobs increased. During the worst of the downturn, the private sector was hammered with massive job losses, while the public sector held fairly steady.
-6/8/12 Investors Business Daily: “Private-sector jobs are still down by 4.6 million, or 4%, from January 2008, when overall employment peaked. Meanwhile government jobs are down just 407,000, or 1.8%. Federal employment actually is 225,000 jobs above its January 2008 level, an 11.4% increase.”
-6/11/12 Cato Institute (http://www.cato-at-liberty.org/obama-vs-… school enrollment has minimally increased over the last few decades, but teacher employment has exploded — the public school workforce has grown 11 times faster than student enrollment over the last 40 years.” Furthermore, on a per pupil basis, the inflation-adjusted average cost of a K-12 education has gone from about $55,000 to about $150,000.”
8/15/12 USA Today/Gannet:
-More than 21,000 retired federal workers receive lifetime government pensions of $100,000 or more per year
-Government pensions are vastly more generous than those in the private sector," says economist Veronique de Rugy of the market-oriented Mercatus Center
-The average federal pension pays $32,824 annually. The average state and local government pension pays $24,373, Census data show. The average military pension is $22,492. ExxonMobilExxon Corporation, which has one of the best remaining private pensions, pays an average of $18,250 per retiree
-All federal retirees receive health benefits.
-Pension payments cost $70 billion last year, plus $13 billion for retiree health care. Taxpayers face a $2 trillion unfunded liability — the amount needed to cover future benefits — for these programs, according to the government's audited financial statement.

The GOP most likely have disdain for folks who are not loyal, and handiest need hardcore conservatives or neo conservatives, and are weary of Moderates and men and women who wish to compromise. Folks are most likely disillusioned with the best way the economic system is, and are looking to the government for solutions, but at the same time are advocating for a smaller executive. Which is variety of an oxymoron at this time. I suppose on one other bias, that Mr.Brown idea of his materials earlier than his get together, which what his social gathering expected him to do, was once variety of a betrayal. Democrats are the enemy in line with many men and women. I believe both parties virtually need what is excellent for the American men and women.

Your statements are filled with many untruths. One that I will debate on is "All federal retirees receive health benefits." This is a lie. I know many Federal retirees and have relatives that are Federal retirees that I did not receive health benefits--some who worked for the government for over 15 years. Many were forced to retire in the Reagan era which saw many people lose their retirement funds (through stock market crashes) and were forced into retirement with very little retirement benefits.
I know you speak of averages, but there are many that are receiving under $40 a month in retirement benefits; and not all government pensions pay large amounts to their retirees. You cannot speak for all and you can't blame everything on the Democrats. No one puts emphasis on the many jobs that were lost in the Reagan and Bush presidencies or republican deficiencies. The republicans were not and are not the not-at-fault party.Source(s): Real accurate information through relatives, friends, and discussions with social workers.

It is a total mystery to many of us outside the U.S. why so many Americans come onto Yahoo trying to drag down the quality of life of America's Public Employees.
Why not look at the question this way; try 'raising' the quality of life for less fortunate Americans, instead of shoving Civil Servants into the poverty trap millions of Americans are falling into every year.
