Minnesota DFL Betrays The Working Class

The Minnesota Democratic Farmer-Labor Party with a super-majority sticks it to workers, again.

Interesting how these Democrats can control wages to remain at poverty levels but they can't control and redistribute wealth back to the workers who create it.

Once again working people who are experiencing a cost-of-living crisis have been screwed by the Democrats.

"At-Will" Employment Must Go

Representing casino workers engaged in union organizing campaigns in the Indian Gaming Industry, I pay close attention to elections on Indian Reservations as I do with politics in general in the three states I work in--- Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.

Many Indian Reservations just held their Primary Elections.

Each and every Indian Reservation engaged in gaming is now thoroughly corrupt and crooked; just like the state and federal governments they work with, hand-in-hand. Like with politics generally, seldom is found an honest tribal politician.

However, it's really not an increase — it is an adjustment to keep up with rising prices. The ones hurt the most when prices go up are the poor and the middle class, whose salaries haven't increased.

Just say "NO" to "bait and switch" politics.

We hear a lot about how people are "free" because they have the right to vote.

When you think about this "right" to vote though, do you ever think about what we have the right to vote on and vote for?

Politics Today

The evolution of  mainstream politics in the United States during the past 30 years has made the political climate favorable for the success of a third political Party as well as for the success of  Independent Congressional candidates during this mid-term election year.  Congressional approval ratings for both of the major Parties reached an all time low during the past year. However, third Parties and Independent candidates have failed to focus on a strategy to take advantage of this and there has been no significant increase in the number of Independent or Third Party candidates for Congress this year.

Lessons from Occupy

Occupy was the first real opposition to the direction our country is heading since the early 1970s. It had significant successes, made significant mistakes, and was ultimately done in by an ever-growing police state. Several of our founders started their work at Occupy. It is worth looking at where we have been before moving on.
