Political notes 1 – 10/31/14

So, we are being told to vote for The Working Families party so they can maintain their ballot status. This means voting for the scariest Halloween character: Andrew Cuomo. I guess it is more important that they gain ballot status than all the things that will happen if Prince Andrew gets reelected: fracking; the stripping of worker protections; the continuation of Common Core; the continuation of a corporate welfare policy that rewards the rich and powerful while everyone gets austerity policies. …. and a continued exclusion of Latinos from the workforce. Forget all these possibilities that will most probably occur if Cuomo gets an overwhelming majority, the ballot status of the Workers family party is more important ……, ARE YOU CRAZY ? This is the type of reasoning that has taken the labor movement to the edge of the cliff. VOTE GREEN not the machine
