Voter Education Project‘s Karl Smith complains often about Democratic messaging. It upsets him that Republicans continuously give the impression that their policies are better for the economy and with that every single American. He says Democrats do not explain, their true beliefs appropriately. Karl did not just sit back and complain. He decided to invest in doing his part to inform and enlighten.
Karl Smith, Founder & Publisher of Voter Education Project
It is a fact that the economy does better in the aggregate under Democratic control. Interestingly, the party that is called the tax & spend party is actually the party that is fiscally responsible. So why do Americans buy into the converse? Voter Education Project is Karl’s answer that will intentionally inform with the proper narrative that will help dispel those fallacies and more. Today he spoke about “Enabled Capitalism.”
Rigged versus Enabled Capitalism
By Karl Smith | The GOP claims it supports Capitalism and free markets. It will work for everyone since a rising tide floats all boats! Actually, what the GOP supports is a Rigged and Predatory Capitalism that works mostly for the few. People without boats or with un-seaworthy boats, drown or spend all their time just trying to stay afloat!
Robert Reich, in his book Saving Capitalism, overviews the various methods that the GOP’s brand of Capitalism rigs the system against most of us. Reich points out activities that are grossly unfair for most of us and activities that are criminal for most of us but are lawful for the few. Beyond that, oversight and enforcement have been defunded or crippled so the few can get away with what is unlawful.
The GOP’s Capitalism (Rigged and Predatory Capitalism) creates hardly a free or fair market!
At the same time the GOP brands what the Democrats do as Socialism! Instead, what Democrats do (although they have not explained it well), is enable Capitalism to work for all Americans!Voter Education Project
