I was speaking to a Republican or as she called herself " A conservative Democrat" today who is going to vote for Romney. She said everyone from her family belonged to a union and she is 100% "in favor" of unions ( except for public unions of course).
So here I am speaking to a Republican who is "pro-union" and comes from a background where her parents struggled. Her family clearly benefited from unions, but she is willing to vote against the economic fabric of her family because quite frankly, she reaped the benefits of it. Why should she care about anybody else?
I think that is the problem with millions of Americans today. Too many people lose perspective of where they come from and the sacrifices it took to get them there. Back in the day people died on the streets to be paid a decent wage and have safe working conditions. People lose sight of that.
We simply cannot afford to let politicians who want to give corporate America 100% control over all of our lives . That is why we must do everything we can to reelect our President. He may not be perfect, but he comes from a family that struggled, and his politics reflect that.
