Noisy Room By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton
I come from a family of Christians who are loyal union members. My father belonged to the Millwright/Carpenter Union his whole life. My cousin and uncle were both Ironworkers. The sad part is, big parts of my family voted for Barack Obama… not once, but twice. Even sadder is that if Joe Biden runs, they’ll vote for him as well. Why? Because he’s pro-labor and that’s all they can see. It doesn’t matter if pro-labor means pro-worker or not. They have one issue and have blinders on. It has now caused an insurmountable schism in my family which saddens me greatly. If my father were still alive, as pro-union as he was until the last decade or so of his life, there’s no way he would have ever supported these craven Marxists. No way.
I fully expect Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren to run on the Democratic ticket for the presidency in 2016. Hillary Clinton is damaged goods and cratering in the polls. She’s also under investigation by the FBI and sooner or later, she’ll be charged. Then some type of pardon will be forthcoming. The Democrats can’t abide Sanders, so Biden will fill the breach most likely. But trust me, if the nominee were to be Socialist Sanders, my family would vote for him. Once again, because he’s pro-labor….
Just as I was thinking about the family finally piecing itself back together after eight years of Barack Obama (but that’s another post), here comes Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren.
