What Government is For
Disasters tell America what government is for. The people can criticize Washington's involvement in their affairs, but when a hurricane comes crashing down upon a shoreline, the Democratic party is given the opportunity to do a "I Told You So" dance. Hurricane Sandy was an occasion that the Democrats capitalized on to explain that government should play a more active role in America. When everything is taken from you, you want help. You want...NEED...a supporter. It is entirely possible that the devastation wreaked by Hurricane Sandy and the subsequent national aid is why Barack Obama was reelected on November 6. Or, of course, Sandy could have merely served as a significant distraction from all of the other problems that the presidential candidates had to face.
