I am impressed by the new and growing number of Progressive, Liberal and Workers groups.
But I believe we need to unite under one banner--one mission.
And I believe there is no better or more urgent time but NOW.
The NUMBER ONE PROBLEM that we are all facing is CLASS WARFARE.
I/we will openly and loudly label our common enemy: "THE CORPORATE/GOP ALLIANCE AGAINST WORKERS' RIGHTS."
We will not shrink from calling a spade a spade when we are demonized by our enemy.
We will not let them get away with their common weapon--accusing others of what they themselves are guilty of.
The "CORPORATE/GOP ALLIANCE AGAINST WORKERS' RIGHTS" has been waging an ongoing war against workers ever since Unions were started by abused workers demanding fair treatment.
Ever since Progressive leaders like Theodore Roosevelt stood up to corporate monopolies and offered workers "A Square Deal."
Ever since Progressive heroes like Franklin Delano Roosevelt told the wealthy industrialists "I WELCOME YOUR HATRED," put desperate willing Americans back to work and pulled America out of its Great Depression.
The "CORPORATE/GOP ALLIANCE AGAINST WORKERS' RIGHTS" hated FDR for stripping Big Business of its power to treat the American worker as a "wage-slave" who had no rights--for providing workers both dignity and an equal opportunity to achieve the American Dream.
