We only have one day to go until this election is cooked, done, and we can stick a fork in it.
BUT WE CANNOT LET UP A BIT UNTIL THE POLLS CLOSE. EVEN IF YOU ARE IN A RED OR BLUE STATE, EVERY STATE HAS CRITICAL SENATE AND HOUSE RACES!
WE HAVE GOT TO PUSH FOR VICTORY!
If we all take care of our business we will win and we will get the opportunity to take real action, mass action on inequality, healthcare, benefits, wage stagnation, right to organize and spreading collective bargaining. We also will have the opportunity to simply answer in the affirmative to workers who want to fight for justice in their lives.
When we win, we have to discuss what unions are doing in Greece and around the world to fight against government and the IMF and the Euro Zone trying to make workers pay for the reckless, immoral, and illegal financial speculation that destroyed so much wealth in the world.
We need to have a real and serious discussion about the elements of social movements and what it takes to create social movements so we can lay the foundation for a real movement here.
We cannot afford to simply wait from election to election. But first we gotta finish our business today and tomorrow.
PLEASE GET ON THE DOORS AND THE PHONES FOR EVERY SINGLE VOTE!!!!
