" Republican March On Washington" by pprus915
Saturday, September 12th, Washington D.C., the West Front of the Capitol was overflowing with protesters, as many as 2 million. The loud and determined mob was another in a series of 'Tea Party' protests that have been galvanizing a populist movement within the Republican party and conservatives all summer. The crowd was rallied by invocations of God and former President Reagan, and stirred to raucous cheering by Republican lawmakers who joined the rally, such as Rep. Tom Price who shouted over the din, "You will not spend the money of our children and our grandchildren to feed an overstuffed government." Also, dozens of signs were visible praising Rep. Joe Wilson who shouted out, "You lie!" during President Obama's joint address of Congress last week. These events have all sprung from the fact that obama our new African American president of the United States which is a drastic change its self has decided to push for a healthcare reform, and some people aren't used to change.
There are two sides to and argument in any debate and i want to argue both sides of them. President Obama broke racial and societal barriers when he ran and won the canidacy for president in November of 2008. He has since taken on the role as the president of the United States and as his campaign slogan stated he is aiming for change. President Obama is the first major president for change in at least 30 years and in this time there have been republican and democratic presidents that have caused many problems that have hurt the goverment's infastructure. The flaws they have created are now up to president obama to fix.
Being the notorious president for change has requiered him to change and mend the govemment's infastructure. The opposing side would like to say that president obama is a young inexperienced president who has high hopes for change and mending the goverment that he can not live up to. The republicans think that the president and his ideas are change that is unnessacary at a delicate time such as the present cituation with the recession and the severe job losses. The republicans have always had the idea that america has great infastructure that does not need change but needs slight adjustments. Over the centuries the republicans have become more conservative but in the past the were for rights for women and slaves and etc. Republicans claim they dont discriminate but with other presidents of the united states of white american nationality the resentment wasnt as strong.
Saturday, September 12th to republicans was a mear cry out for attention. They lost some of there powers in the goverment and they wanted to get there point across that they were not in approval of the healthcare reform that president Obama was proposing. The galvanist have a idea and they want it to be heard they lost the presidency and its only fair that some of there ideas be heard and if they have to bring 2 million people to the nations capital to protest they will do it. Its a natural person especially americans objective is to express there opinion thus the phrase"freedom of speech". What the republicans did was justified by the constitiution and the opinions of the two million that marched and the others that agreed with them.
So I ask you fellow blog reader what do u think was the march on washington in opposition of healthcare a republican cry for help or a republican scandal to make the democratic president look bad?
