Progressives and Labor Day

If you understand that the modern Progressive Movement, as embodied by the Congressional Progressive Caucus, advocates all of the tenets of Marxist principles, then you will understand why normal Americans are naturally distrustful of the current Congress and President. Take a look at this list and note that the most powerful committees in the House are chaired by Marxists Progressives. When they talk about "change", they are talking about "fundamental transformation", but not within the normal understanding of the rules of American Politics where the Constitution actually matters.

Not at all.

The change that the citizen is beginning to see is a takeover by entrenched special interests advancing a "communization" of our society. It is becoming obvious to the citizens now. Especially, when the citizens see that "change" is being astroturfed organized by Radical Leftists, Race-baiters, Anarchists, Communists, Animal Rights extremists, a few corporations which didn't exist 10 years ago (but which now stand to gain from most of the proposed pending legislation), SEIU, and the AFL-CIO.

Which brings me to Labor Day. Labor Day was created as a paean to the labor unions and the "contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country". It is official recognition of the power that the Labor Unions hold over politicians from labor-organized and labor-dominated states. Big Labor delivers votes, and votes are all that politicos count. Until a movement threatens that status quo, it will continue to be discounted and ignored.

Ponder that one while you enjoy your "Workingman's Holiday" viewing parades to exhibit to the public "the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations".
