Labor Day - Recognizing The Workers That Built America

What we know of America today began with our Founders who created a system of government that allowed for the growth and development of our country into the greatest nation in the history of the world.  That said, the America we see today began about 150 years ago with Industrialization.  Steel made skyscrapers possible.  The railroad that criss crossed America after the Civil War brought goods to all parts of the nation.  The United States became the arsenal of democracy during two World Wars that made America a superpower.  

None of this would have been possible without the back breaking work of millions of Americans and immigrants that came from all over the world to make America a great country.  Private sector unions fought for better working conditions and benefits that have been codified into federal and state laws so much so that private sector unions have become unnecessary.  One of the reasons that private sector unions declined is that they demanded higher and higher wages and more benefits that were not sustainable.  In the process, unions destroyed manufacturing jobs in the United States as companies simply moved production to lower cost countries in order to compete in a global economy.  In essence, private sector unions killed the goose that laid the golden egg.  

Socialist President Franklin Roosevelt opposed public sector unions because he anticipated the corruption that would come from them.  Sure enough, public sector unions are now predominant in the United States in terms of a membership compared to private sector unions.  And, sure enough public sector unions support Socialist politicians that they own to secure higher wages and more benefits.  It is a vicious circle of corruption at taxpayer expense.   None are more problematic than teacher unions as they have secured increased funding for public schools in spite of terrible academic achievement to allow teachers to continue feeding at the trough.  Teacher unions can oppose the reforms needed to improve public schools because they own and control the Socialist politicians that will stop them.  In this case, kids just don't matter.  

On this Labor Day, many are struggling with high inflation and energy costs just to put food on the table.  People are working; but wages have not kept up with inflation.  We need to Make America Great Again.  It will not happen as long as Socialist Fascists control government.  It is time for change.  Hopefully, Midterm elections will result in Republicans taking over the Congress to end Biden's Socialist schemes that have made a mess of our country.  We must save Social Security and Medicare that are headed toward bankrupcy.  We must secure our border to stop the illegal alien invasion and poisonous drugs entering our country.  We must roll back the Green New Deal because it will result in a lower standard of living for all Americans.  We must address the crime happening all over America.  We have a lot of work to do to get our country back on track.
