Working Class Hero

Updated on February 14, 2017

Mike's Common Sense

Throughout the past, whenever a major threat to freedom and the American way of life got too powerful, or loomed to large to ignore, some person, or persons of character and strong moral fiber rose to the occasion to rally the American people to victory over the evil threat. We had George Washington to battle the British, F.D.R. and Eisenhower to battle the Nazis, and John Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan to battle the Communists in the Cold War. America, Land of the free, and home of the brave has survived for over 230 years, because these people, and others like them, saw the threat, and chose to do something about it for the good of the American People.

The American way of life is slowly having the life choked out of it. This process has been going on for over 30 years. The evil forces responsible for this are the global power elite, the banks, Wall Street, and Corporate Management. Slowly but surely the working class of America, and the whole free world, are being turned into a feudal class of indentured servants by the coordinated efforts of these evil, greedy forces.

The unions are powerless to fight these people because they have been de-clawed of the ability to strike. Striking workers are in danger of being replaced by Management thereby making it almost impossible to strike. With out the ability to shut a company down, unions no longer have the leverage needed to fairly bargain with Corporate Management over pay, health benefits, vacation time, sick days, and retirement funding.

Since Ronald Reagan fired the striking air traffic controllers in 1981, vitally all workers have experienced the eroding of all of the amenities that they used to have. Wages have been slashed, health benefits modified, or totally done away with, retirement funds confiscated by Management, and jobs outsourced to foreign lands. 61% of workers polled have reported that they are surviving on a pay check to pay check basis. All of this on top of a 10.4% unemployment rate shows the sorry state of the American worker.

Mean while the rich keep getting richer. Top executives keep receiving huge bonuses, and compensation, while their employees are having their homes confiscated. When will the greed end? Is there an end to this greed?

American workers are grasping at straws looking for somebody, anybody to help them out of this morass. The workers have realized that they can't count on the government, or the politicians to help them because they are in bed with big money. Who will rise up to take on this evil?

America needs a working class hero, someone who is not swayed by greed, but who truly cares about America and it's people. We need some one who is a true patriot, willing to fight to keep America free from the banks, and the international power elite; some one the people can rally around to change the balance of power.

Who will this be?

      You are right, didn't think of it, we don't have heros anymore; perhaps times have changed in such a way that the common people need to work together to bring changes for their families and friends, and in this there is a collective power. We can only trust ourselves, not the banks (which I worked in for years) or the government. Just rambling, not sure what I am typing. :)

      Your hubs are always like little nuggets of wisdom that makes me pause and think.

      HI Steve I really had not thought of it that way, but you make a point.

      Sounds like we need a modern day Robin Hood or Zoro.

      Same old storyline; Greed, Power, Fame, with modern day bad guys.
