2020 Issues In The Midwest
I promised a more details about battleground political issues in the last podcast. Seems like no one wants to focus on the real issues in the Midwest. Time to do that in 2020-Stealth-Battleground-Issues-Bob Davis Podcast 883.
Battleground States No One on TV Ever Goes To
Even more you hear a lot about the so called ‘battleground states‘. In contrast all the reporting is about Washington DC!
Consequently I decided to take a trip across America’s Heartland. On Back Roads. Click here for those podcasts.
Sick Of The News
First of all if people I talked to said they were sick and tired of political news.
The most noteworthy conclusion of this podcast might end up being ‘war weariness’ when it comes to politics.
Same Song Over and Over
Seems like political news coverage is becoming like that song you hear on the radio over and over again. It used to be your favorite but if you hear it one more time, you’re going to scream.
Stealth Issues In The Heartland
Especially relevant are several ‘stealth’ issues across the heartland.
What’s the definition of ‘prosperity‘?
Right To Work
What about National Right To Work movements, versus Unions in key states.
Foreign Direct Investment and Trade Issues
In addition many jobs are being provided by Foreign Direct Investment. And by Foreign companies manufacturing in the US.
Then, maybe there are more jobs, but what kinds of jobs?
Feeling Prosperous As Good As Being Prosperous?
That said, a job means you can pay rent and buy something for yourself. Regardless of what pundits might regard sub par. Back to that feeling of prosperity which might be just as important as being prosperous for some. Learn more in 2020-Stealth-Battleground-Issues-Bob Davis Podcast 883.
Development In The Midwest and Mid South Changing Electorate
Finally development in the mid south and Midwest means smaller cities are becoming larger cities. That means pressure to turn state roads into freeways, freeways into interstates.
Also what about the emergence of corporate farming as opposed to family farms?
Decay In Old Downtown Areas
Moreover there are many examples of what happens when the new freeway goes through, and local businesses are left to die.
Government Handing Out Subsidies
Most important is growth created by US Government spending and subsidies. Not just in big urban centers but on the farm and in small towns too.
Think people can afford 1600 dollars a month for health insurance when they’re working hourly jobs? A gifted politician will not miss this opportunity.
Obsessed With Washington DC
A lot of this is just below the surface. The media is obsessed with twitter and hearing rooms in the Capitol. This year’s election might be too close to call right now. What they miss might have powerful and unexpected effects in the 2020 election.
