Watch this video - particularly toward the 6 minute mark - concerning our Presidents views on working people and Organized Labor.
Please pass it on to some of our own local politicians - who supported President Obama but yet - don't understand the value of Organized Labor and the positive affect they have on the middleclass.
This -my friends - is an TRUE AMERICAN PRESIDENT. A President who truly cares for the people of the United States - INCLUDING the Middle Class people. This has not been the case during the last 8 years.
Barack Obama is a breath of fresh air and a welcome voice to everyone who works for a living AND ALSO TO THOSE THAT PROVIDE THEIR JOBS. He is going to provide stability.
This is the end of the cut throat corporate game plan that uses the backs of the working people as weapons against the competition.
The way for America to become prosporous is for business and labor to truly work together along with our government.
We need to invest in businesses AND good jobs. Organized Labor is part of the solution and we need to come together. This cannot happen if people don't start realizing that, as our 16th President, Abraham Lincoln said, " A house divided against itself cannot stand".
We need to take back America. Make American businesses and workers prosper.
We all make up this country. Business is important but so is Labor. There needs to be a cohesive effort between Business and Labor to band together. Any side that thinks our capitalistic system can survive into the near future without that happening is a fool.
Without businesses cooperation, no one would make enough money to purchase any businesses product. Without labors cooperation, there is no business that can reach its full financial potential.
The good news is that President Obama is ahead of the curve and understands this.
The bad news is that many of our local politicians - suprisingly being mostly Democrats - do not understand this yet.
Speaking specifically of Ulster County, many local politicians seem to believe that they are being nice to business when they are not nice to labor. They don't connect labor to the thousands of taxpaying families. They actually believe that good jobs are a bother, a nusiance.
That needs to change.
Most politicians in Orange and Dutchess DO UNDERSTAND that good jobs ARE IMPORTANT and that Organized Labor IS part of the solution. NOT ALL - BUT MOST.
TO QOUTE OUR 16TH PRESIDENT ABRAHAM LINCOLN:
If any man tells you he loves America, yet hates labor, he is a liar. If any man tells you he trusts America, yet fears labor, he is a fool."
