I’m spending most of this week at the Steelworkers Civil Rights Conference working on stopping voter suppression. I’m conducting four workshops on voter suppression and what the Bible says about our responsibility to one another.
The mood is elevated. The officers and rank-and-filers are in great moods.
This is a very serious conference filled with people who are determined to protect democracy and the right to vote.
Average people and average workers see Romney as one who will make their lives harder, and their children’s lives harder. More and more workers see Romney not as a potential steward and leader of America, but as an any enemy of workers and the middle class. It is finally getting through to average voters that Romney will hurt their lives and their country.
