Americans Deserve Better Than The Clintons
Wall Street wants the clients to keep Wall Street just as it is and for that is Bill Clinton will get another four years as president even though Hillary would be the elected president, assuming she is elected president. She cannot and will not be able to control Bill, and the establishment knows this. They all at Wall Street, corporations and big banks remember what Bill did for them at the detriment of the wage slaves. So why do the wage slaves want Hillary? This includes some of the leadership of the unions. Don’t the union leadership remember NAFTA, and Bill never helped the unions with card check or tightening up the National Labor Relations Board to help keep unions strong. Maybe it was because Hillary set on Walmart’s board of directors. Should we not expect Hillary to support a $15 an hour minimum wage? Also there is the incarceration of black Americans at a higher rate than others. This prison population exploded under Bill’s presidency and now Hillary was getting large sums of money from the private prison industry (that she has since returned once it became known). This makes their profits from the misery of black prisoners, who are without hope of ever fitting into the work place when and if they are released. Typically, these prisoners have lower educational levels and few job skills. All of this is wrong and unfair for the 47 percent and this is why there is an exodus from the corrupted Democratic Party. And union members are not accepting the endorsements of their leaders’ choice for presidents, and are, instead, voting for Sanders, which is the only way to help themselves. Some union members are sadly supporting Donald Trump in a misguided notion that he will create jobs for them, and destroy the trade agreements. Bernie Sanders is and will do the same thing without turning one segment of society against another. Bernie has a proven track record, unlike Hillary and Donald. Bernie’s platform is the dream of most of the 47 percent, which is a $15 an hour minimum wage, free education, single-payer healthcare (which is Medicare for all), trade agreements that work for all workers or none, addressing climate change with renewable energy, and putting our people to work on our failing infrastructure: roads, bridges, water lines, and schools. The need is here. We have the money. We just need a strong resolute leader, who is backed by millions of workers to make the change. Lastly, the unions that have not taken sides yet should poll their members, and then support the candidate of their choice. Hopefully, it will be Bernie. If labor does not understand or see what is happening, then this could be the last gasp for labor and the Democratic Party. As we know them. Labor and the Democratic Party have always worked together—until labor was thrown under the bus for Wall Street, corporations and big banks, which began under George McGovern and accelerated under Bill Clinton.
