I take some exception to the comment that Republicans are all about big business and making the rich richer. My complaining here stems from some personal experience of stereotypes given to the two parties (Republican and Democrat)

In ancient times(late 70’s and early 80’s) as I was finishing up my degree, studying and working with graduate students, I would hear this type of comment: all the Republicans are about is big business, the Democrats care about education.

What I thought was interesting was that everyone in that particular group was getting a graduate degree courtesy of grants furnished by none other than big business. Furthermore everysingle job both for summer and thoughout the school year was also owed to business grants. You would think this might be the case in science and technology where business has a vested interest

but this was in the field of Anthropology.

My point is that you hear that the Democrats are interested in education, and alot of somewhat useless laws and non-effective programs are started. All good intentions, but when it comes right down to it, it’s the private sector and business that actually provides the dough to run things.

<img decoding=” title=”Razz” /> okay I know I am just mouthing off here about my political feelings but I think that big business gets a bum rap, when it actually provides alot of good things that we just don’t hear about. Go ahead and call me on this, because I too need to make informed decisions come election time.
