    There are various dynamics from the closure of the political system to the adoption of corporate capitalism endorsed by both sides which have led well to the decline of the middle class. But the Middle Class is not who the Republocrats are beholden to. This is best visible in the bailouts after the collapse. As soon as Wall Street and the Banks were hit, what happened? Government sprung into action, took our money, and gave it all to their buddies. This was supported on both sides of the isle. Now that their friends are out of the woods, and the rest of us are left dealing with the collapse at still over 9% unemployment; the government somehow is bogged down and can't come to an agreement which can serve the People.

    The current state of affairs and status quo was not the work of just one of the main parties. Both have teeter-tottered through control enough times and they all work towards very similar goals and support the same people. It's time to put the blind partisanship behind us. The Republocrats are playing us for fools here, getting us to yell at each other and point fingers while nothing changes. Decades upon decades of Republocrat rule has led us to this place. The blinders need to come off and we need to see the system for what it is.

    "I apprehend no danger to our country from a foreign foe . . . Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter. From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence, I must confess that I do apprehend some danger. I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants, and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing. Make them intelligent, and they will be vigilant; give them the means of detecting the wrong, and they will apply the remedy."
    — Daniel Webster

    Scary how right he was.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I live in NYC and know lots of folks from Rochester, Westchester, Rockland, Dutchess County, etc.

    and yes, the upstate economy has been sucking for decades. Its part of the de-industrialization of the Northeast and Mid-West.

    AND Bethlehem and Republic Steel, and a plethora of other industries. Hell, even Eastman Kodak in Rochester has contemplated leaving!

    Don't need to show cause and effect to refute the notion that tax cuts creates jobs, and causes economic growth. All I have to do is show that it has never happened.

    Tax cuts also don't lower budget deficits or lower national debt
