When are people going to wake up to the fact that the Republican Party is looking out only for the interests of CEOs and big business?

Just ask the people of Minnesota what they think about Gov. Tim Pawlenty's cutting of social programs like child care assistance. The people, once again, most affected by these type of changes are moderate- to low-income families and their children.

How about the huge tax cut for the wealthiest of Americans? The trickle-down theory of the Reagan era does not work when it comes to creating jobs.

Trade agreements that favor the exporting of good-paying American jobs overseas and decimating the middle-class? It doesn't work and some of the Democrats need to realize this as well.

Favoring corporations to the extent that they can "relocate" to Bermuda to avoid paying taxes? I wonder if the government would allow normal citizens to "relocate" their home addresses off-shore to avoid paying taxes.

"All of this and then some" describe what the Republican Party stands for and I think it's time for normal, everyday citizens to stand up and be counted so that we can take back our country from special interests and corporations.
