There is a great deal at stake (@ steak) in the November, 2014 elections. The 1% will be trying to maintain their privileged position in US society so that they, and not we, will continue to be able to dine at Ruth Chris Steak Houses and others on designer steaks, paid for by lobbyists and the US taxpayer through tax loopholes for the rich.
Although the voters rejected the GOP in November, 2012, the GOP are acting as though they have a mandate to govern or not govern. If the GOP have their way, Obama’s re-election will be made meaningless. The time for President Obama to accomplish anything is fast running out and may end by year-end 2013 in just 5 more months. 2014 will be devoted entirely to election politics. If the GOP retain control of the House and then gain control of the Senate, they are planning to try to impeach President Obama on any pretext. Those of us who voted for Obama’s re-election in 2012 must get out the vote again in 2014 to save him and to save his agenda for the years 2015 and 2016. Barack can still fulfill his 2008 campaign promises in the final two years of his presidency with our support. Otherwise, the GOP will succeed in opposing everything for eight straight years. 3.5 more years of suffering for the American people is too horrible a fate to contemplate.
