When Karl Marx made his plea for the workers of the world to unite there was at least the trace of an argument in favor of changes in the business world that would allow the average working person the ability to make a wage that could support his/her family. But today’s radical leftist movement, currently embodied in the administration of Barack Insane Obama and his Democrat toadies, is trying to undo the essence of Marx’s manifesto, because Obama is doing everything he can to undermine the gains that working Americans made under the 20th Century labor movement by plotting against the workers of America in favor of the increasing millions who are unemployed and may never become employed. The passage of Obamacare, and its threats to our economy, not only caused millions of people to become unemployed or underemployed, but has also caused people with private health insurance (and eventually those with employer healthcare coverage) to lose their coverage.
On the labor union front, a year or so ago, we saw the NLRB preventing Boeing from establishing a plant in South Carolina which would have employed many people there. Most recently the Obama administration is trying to force unionization on one company after another by rushing to a membership vote before the company is able to assemble a defense and inform its employees of the facts. Toyota, as an example of a non-union company, is a domestic, foreign-owned manufacturer whose employees are satisfied with their working conditions, their benefits and their pay, and happy to be non-union. Why would our dictator-in-chief try to push unionization down the throats of these or any other workers who don’t want it? The answer is the power and money that Democrats get as a pass-thru from union dues.
Anyone who has read Upton Sinclair’s book The Jungle can understand how the abuse of workers 100 years ago would require a change, and the unions can be partially credited with successfully making the important changes that make employees more wealthy and healthy today. But unions have outgrown their usefulness and are now just the tools of big government to intrude on the lives of American citizens and make them subservient to our dear leftist rulers, and in turn make them poorer. And has it not been Obamacare which has taken the pleasant healthcare benefits of many employees away from American citizens via regulations on the number of hours of work it takes to be considered a full-time employee, and the dictated contents of a healthcare package that Obama will allow employers to offer, in spite of the fact that most employees are (were) very satisfied with their employer-provided coverage.
So now that we see America’s great healthcare system being intentionally dismantled by our Barry and his radical cadre, it’s time for the remaining workers (and those who hope to become employed again in the future) to band together to oppose Obama and everything he stands for (greatly increased taxes to service Obama’s multi-trillion dollar debt, more expensive electric power combined with frequent brown-outs, U.N. control of our gasoline supply via carbon taxes, less available and more expensive gasoline and other petroleum products, a shortage of doctors and proper medical care in general under Obamacare, an influx of persons illegally entering our country in order to get Democrat-promised citizenship in exchange for their votes), across the board, before we lose to an unconstitutional federal government everything we’ve worked and saved for. If Obama is successful in his anti-capitalism efforts, this will be the greatest forced-transfer of wealth the world has ever seen as Obama rewards the non-workers of the world and the big-government employees of his administration and destroys all real wealth in the process.
