Current: The War Room With Jennifer Granholm: "We have to fight': Teamsters President James Hoffa JR says Mitt Romney Wants Eliminate Organize Labor"



To understand the Workers Rights debate and thats exactly what is, the right of Workers who tend to be Middle Class in America. People who apparently Mitt Romney believes are under taxed, because he has a Middle Class Tax Hike in his economic plan. You have to know that its about Economic Freedom for people in the Middle Class, that if you believe in Economic Freedom, you believe in it for everyone, not just for executives and stockholders. But for the workers who make executives and the wealthy, well wealthy with their productivity, one of the reasons why American Workers are so well paid compared with a lot of other countries. Is because of their productivity, so they are simply worth a lot more economically then people in lets say Mexico and even in Japan. And based on their productivity, they are probably even underpaid and anyone who knows that if America really had a Free Market economy. American Workers would probably be making a hell of a lot more money then they do today and another reason why American Workers do so well compared with a lot of the rest of the World, has to do with Organize Labor. The ability for American Workers to collectively bargain, which is something that Tea Party Republicans are trying to eliminate.

To understand this debate you also have to understand what Right to Work is, which is a bogus term. Right to Work suggests that Americans have a Right to Work, that we are entitled to a job in the United States based on our Citizenship. Which is simply not true, no American is automatically entitled to a job, based on the Constitution or Statue, jobs are something we have to earn in this country. Thats not what these Right to Work Laws are, what they really are giving employers the Right of Absolute Power, meaning they wouldn't have Organize Labor to hold them accountable. Right to Work means that Organize Labor would essentially be outlawed, which is something that Democrats shouldn't tolerate and any real Conservative Republican shouldn't tolerate either. Republicans who actually believe in Individual Freedom and don't just talk about it.

I'm a Liberal Democrat and I'm not anti Capitalist, anti Corporate or anti business, I'm pro all of those things but I'm also pro Worker as well, the people who. Make these companies successful and I don't believe most corporations or executives are evil like a lot of Progressives. I believe by in large they perform a good function for the country, I just don't believe they deserve Absolute Power. Like a lot of Republicans who apparently do.

Considering that the GOP keeps shooting themselves in the foot and they are running out of toes. I would say pretty good.

Liberal democracy, worked pretty well in America except for African-Americans and perhaps other racial minorities. Which is why the civil rights movement was so important and Reverend Martin L. King comes along in the 1950s part of the civil rights generation that he in large part created. And concluded that for America to be a true liberal democracy, that all Americans should have their liberty and not just a special few. That liberal democracy had to work for all of us, not some of us, or we weren’t a real liberal democracy.

As President Kennedy said, we would be a country that’s half free and half slave. With some Americans with the liberty to live up to their full-potential in life and get out of life what they put into it, with everyone else being dependent on what the special few gave us. And that forced segregation and racism was wrong and unacceptable and that this can’t be tolerated in a liberal democracy. And knew how to fight back against this and mobilized people who felt the same way. Dr. King’s political skills were also very good, he understood that not all Caucasian-Americans were racists and believed in forced segregation. He also knew that not all Southern Caucasians were racists either and reached out to those people a well.

Another thing that Dr. King understood that when of this interview in 1957, that African- Americans made up roughly 10% of the American population. And for his movement to ever get off the ground, let alone succeed, he was going to need the help of other Americans. Similar to the gay rights movement today. Which is why he reached out to Caucasians, Jews, Latinos and others, especially in the media, to get the message out. And did a lot of interviews in print and broadcast. To spread the movement of non-violence, peace and equal rights for all Americans and again not just for the special few.

Thats a big part along with their keen intelligence that made Dr. King and Malcolm X so special. They both really knew how to work the media to get their message out. This is also what made people like Richard Hefner so special like this, who understood the greatness of people before they were famous. Dr. King, understood the power of the media, especially the electronic media before a lot of other people did. Similar to Jack Kennedy and knew how to use it to get their message out and spread the word of what they were trying to say and be able to communicate. Not only to their followers, but also to bring in a lot of other new followers. And had a great message to get out and communicate to America.
