41. Republicans are afraid...
If we had 12 years straight like the repukes did we could actually make America a decent place.

True, and that needs to be pointed out. Roosevelt's New Deal pulled America OUT of the depression.

Republicans are afraid of losing what they have now, whether it's guns, money, personal property, religious expression, or personal autonomy.

Democrats need to point out the consequences of Republican policies like "trickle down economics" (just how long is it going to take for anything to trickle down if twelve years is not enough?) and contrast those consequences to the consequences of the Clinton administration when there was prosperity for the middle class.

People will try to say that 9/11 changed everything, but Pearl Harbor could as easily have changed everything but for the policies in place that provided a safety cushion for the average American. By feeding the coffers of the wealthiest we are putting the economic prosperity of the majority in the hands of those who have never been generous about sharing it. Haven't we seen enough of our good jobs go overseas? If we take care of the middle and lower classes we are guaranteeing that the country will continue to be strong and free into the future... for everyone, not just a few.
