One More Reason to be Glad for a Democratic Majority

I saw this over at

So, it seems that Kerry is going to reinvigorate the Small Business Admin. All I can say is great. We all know that small businesses are good for not only the national economy but also the local ones as well. I hope that Kerry will use his role to also look into what we can do to protect small, local business from the big mega-stores and mega-corporations too. With the founder of the Grameen Bank set to accept the Nobel Peace Prize in less than a week now, it should be on the front of all our minds what we can do to help the small person.

Reminds me of what Dad told me when I was small when I asked about the difference between the Democrats and the Republicans. He told me that Republicans were for big business and the rich people and that the Democrats were for everyone else. Made sense to me then and makes sense to me now.

Guess that is where I get my populist streak.



Thanks for bringing the link over

I will follow it later this morning. That is a wonderful organization to champion. Of course, with Democrats in power there should be less legislation meant to pave the way for big business and making it impossible for the little guy to compete.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Small Business Owner Here

As a small business owner, I don't need to be "protected" from larger or better-run competition, short of monopolies, etc.. Fighting it out in the marketplace is all part of the game.

All I want is for ALL businesses to be treated fairly and equally when it comes to regulation and taxation. When the state throws hundreds of millions in tax breaks and other incentives at Dell, an out of state company, to get a few more jobs created, it is unfair to those of us who have existing businesses and who could probably more effectively use the state's per employee inventment in Dell to provide a livelihood to North Carolina workers. No protection needed- just don't give extra consideration, money, deregulation, etc. to the big guy.
