This is probably the most important voting cycle in our generation. Please read up and make an educated decision, every vote is so very important. The internet is just buzzing with all the information that a person could ask for regarding information on EVERY candidate.
Following is the latest from the International regarding the importance of voting.
I AM VOTING
How many of your friends and neighbors are jobless? How many family members
are working part-time or for lower wages because that’s the only job they
could find? And how many citizens of your state have simply stopped looking?
Nationally, 31 million Americans have been idled by this Grave Recession.
Some have been looking for work for over two years. And some who call
themselves 99ers have run out of unemployment benefits.
From factory floors to office suites and airport tarmacs, management is using the massive pool of unemployed as a “productivity” incentive. Squeezing more work out of fewer workers is the newest strategy. Abusive attitudes proliferate. Even state governments find a silver lining in this jobs crisis. Using stimulus monies and disaster relief funds, states like Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina are waving tons of cash in front of corporations to relocate entire facilities to their states. They promote their states as a union-free, right-to-work (for less) environment.
To battle such state-sponsored greenmail, states like Kansas and Wisconsin
make counter-offers to keep the jobs and facilities. And unions like ours face demands for costly concessions to sweeten those counteroffers in order to save jobs.
If this happened once or twice, it might be a coincidence. But it has also happened in Arizona, New Mexico, Illinois and Pennsylvania. Corporations are auctioning our jobs off to the highest bidders.
There’s only one way to stop this pernicious practice: Go Vote on November
2nd. Let us vote for governors who will protect our jobs. Let us vote for Members of Congress who will fight to end this jobs crisis.
