DEMOCRATS have an uphill struggle during the midterm elections. For the hourly working class there should be no reservations about voting for the Democratic tickets. The genius of republican propaganda is to convince people to vote against their wallets or family purses while insuring the movement of money up into the hands of the rich.
Take for example Obamacare; they have the middle class convinced that even free medicare is bad because it is socialistic. Think, all or most actions of the government that help citizens be relieved of excessive burdens is socialistic. Government’s purpose is the welfare of the citizens. What more serves that purpose than medical care for the citizens.
They have convinced most people that raising the minimum wages would cause jobs and the closing of many businesses. This is a crock of crap. Business always trim employee numbers if it would increase profits. If hiring more employees would increase profits, than they hire more employees; it’s just that simple. The economy always has determined the number of jobs. Your employer is not your benevolent friend who helps you beyond your employment contract. Don’t let that smile and pat on the back make you think otherwise. JOIN A LABOR UNION.
Republicans have convinced most of the middle class that labor unions are bad. The truth is labor unions has always produced higher wages for the hourly working class who is predominately the middle class. In actuality, labor unions pay for themselves even when considering the cost of fees. Without collective bargaining power wages and benefits shall continue to stagnate while the rich becomes richer.
All political motives of the Republicans are those which move money upward toward the top profiteers. They shall never contradict their colors and that is green. Republicans has always served big business even at a cost and detriment to the hourly working class.
