Today I read that Republicans think that Afghanistan is equal to Benghazi times ten.
What the news is trying to tell us is that Republicans think that they can use the Afghanistan withdrawal issue to gain enough political capital to win back the Presidency and the Senate.
What’s the point?
Why should anyone vote for the Republicans when they did absolutely nothing when they had the Presidency, the House, and the Senate for two years between 2016 and 2018?
The Republicans didn’t do a damn thing.
My advice to Republicans (and the Democrats) would be to forget the gimmicks and stick to the basics.
The Afghanistan issue is a gimmick.
If you want to win a football game, follow the advice of Vince Lombardi and block and tackle better than your opposition. Forget about the trick plays if you’re not going to take care of the basics.
When it comes to politics the same type of advice is worth heeding. Forget about the gimmicks; stick to the basics and develop a program which will help the American people.
Solve a problem, motherfucker.
America needs substantive healthcare reform to provide affordable healthcare for its citizenry.
The best way to achieve that is to break up the large healthcare corporations into true competitors.
Doing so would give us better products, better hospitals, better insurance plans at a cheaper cost.
That’s not hard to do. It’s not hard to limit the size of corporations. All it takes is political will.
To provide the uninsured insurance, one would need to give a tax credit for healthcare insurance premiums and copays.
For those too destitute to afford any insurance at all, allow me, or a business, or a corporation, or any other individual to purchase healthcare insurance for an uninsured and receive a tax credit for doing so. Allow me a tax credit for paying for their co-pays also.
Overnight everyone in America would be insured.
It’s not difficult to do.
It’s only difficult when you don’t want to do it.
But when you do do it, you have to stick to the basics and quit wasting your time on gimmicks.
Unfortunately the Republican Party and it’s media mouthpieces, people like Sean Hannity, keep the majority of the voters focused on non-productive issues like the Afghanistan withdrawal issue.
It’s a waste of time.
It keeps us from moving forward.
It’s very much like a football team that runs a bunch of trick plays to compensate for its inadequacies.
Hopefully, someday, one of our political parties will get a coach who understands the game.
Right now, we’re on a losing streak.
The fans would like a few wins.
