It’s Not Just a Labor Day Message

Posted on: September 18, 2014

I published this on labor day but after reading it several times it occurs to me that it is a universal message about the contemporary America Politic.

It is my opinion and that of many conservatives and liberals I know that labor would improve its position in The United States if labor unions would stop allying themselves with the overt socialist candidate that believes in large government entitlement programs.

The true conservative wants to get the socialist giant off of its back but has no qualms with workers desiring a qualified wage or safe working conditions. Indeed, many conservatives could be considered members of labor as they are themselves “working class,” a statistic which cannot be disputed when you consider the large number of conservatives elected to public office during the last five years. Obviously working class people are voting conservative, not just the wealthy as the socialists would have us all believe.

One only needs to read the news to see the massive abuses of such programs as SNAP, or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (aka food stamps), or any other of a whole host of social programs. One only needs to watch the news to see that the socialist system is out of order and subject to all manner of abuse and misuse at massive tax payer expense.

There is nothing more demoralizing to a working person than to find out when examining their pay statement a quarter or more of their pay is gone when it isn’t necessary.

So if labor unions and other such labor organizations truly want to help the working classes, maybe they should concentrate on getting the socialist giant off of the backs of the voter first before they go and support a candidate that carries the socialist cause.

Labor and socialism are not one in the same and it is time for labor to recognize that or it will continue to lose ground in the war to save its membership.

Labor will serve the working person best when labor ceases to be a socialist front.
