I try my best to stay out of politics as much as possible but after our last Governal or Governmental, however you say it election I feel like I need to become a little more involved. It seemed like every time I turned the TV on the other guy was saying Matt Blevin hated teachers and Blevin was saying the other guy was a communist. Does Blevin hate teachers and is the governor we have now a communist? Because if both are true neither one of them deserve to be governor.
Dear, I Believe the Words You’re Looking for are Gubernatorial and Bevin,
Edgar Allan Poe once said, “Believe nothing you hear and only one half of what you see”, the scary thing is he said it way before the internet and TV. When you’re talking politics, don’t believe ANYTHING you hear/see the one guy say about the other.
Let me give you my opinion on Blevin, I mean Bevin and his teacher hating. Bevin, from what I could gather, was completely missing the tact gene, add that into the fact that he grew up a Yankee and its easy to see why it would look as though he hated teachers after hearing him address the “pension apocalypse”. I personally think his intentions were good, the pension situation had to be dealt with at some point and was destined to run out of money (and still is) in its current state.
With this pension mess--well, if you have more money going out than you have coming in you will run out of money—its that simple. To make a long story short neither side was willing to compromise in a way that suited the opposite side and that with the lack of tact, demonstrated in comments made by Blevin, led folks to believe he hates teachers. Which, hey, he might actually hate teachers, I wasn’t all too fond of them in school myself.
Is Beshear a commie?
Short answer; he’s a Democrat. The Democrat platform continues to veer left as is evident in front running Presidential candidates such as Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. The further left you lean on the political spectrum the closer you get to being designated an actual communist meaning; according to Karl Marx includes all property being publicly owned and the elimination of private poverty.
Beshear is not a communist, he’s just a democrat who is pro-abortion, pro-union, pro-gambling, pro-marijuana, pro-gay rights, pro-taxes.
