In the world of politics, one sees lots of strange things, but one of the strangest recent sights is that of Susan Gaddy, who filed at the last minute to challenge Senator Jim DeMint in the June Republican Primary.
It happens that Gaddy has a long record of political activism - as a Democrat. Most recently as the Democratic precinct President from Daniel Island Precinct in Berkeley County, where she blasted both John McCain and George W. Bush in October 2008 in an op-ed in the Daniel Island News.
Barack Obama has detailed a tax plan that would restore some fairness to our American economic system. It would put money in the pockets of the many, and, yes, the rich would have to go back to paying what they did under President Reagan – not exactly painful.
The Obama proposal would benefit millions of South Carolinians – with a $500 per worker, or $1,000 per working family – tax credit. On top of that Obama’s plan would give a $1,000 rebate check to every family to offset the huge increase in energy costs brought to us by the two former oilmen now working in the White House. I think the people of Charleston will put that money to better use than the McCain-Bush billionaires club.
Do the math for yourself: Enough is enough. America needs a change of direction.
Yes, indeed, let's hope our readers tuned into what Gaddy is saying and do the math for themselves.
