For My Union Brothers & Sisters...and ALL working Americans

I am putting this back on top because with only ten days left to the most critical election in the history of our nation, I think this is too important to miss. For those of you who are still on the fence, still undecided, ask yourselves, what is the real reason I'm holding off on supporting Barack Obama?

As you watch the video below, look at the faces in the crowd. They are people just like us. Our friends, our neighbors, our co-workers, our families. Listen to what Brother Trumka has to say. Look into your own hearts and decide - four more years of George Bush's failed policies? Or four years of hope and rebuilding. It's time for a change. We need to rebuild America! We need to create jobs! We need a government that is more responsive to Main Street than Wall Street! Barack Obama is the man who can lead us in that effort.

So I'm asking you, working men and women, Union or not, to put aside your prejudices for just 7 minutes and 40 seconds and watch and listen. Then decide.

Thank you.

AFL-CIO's Richard Trumka on Racism and Obama

The entire speech can be seen HERE.

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And dont criticize
What you cant understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin.
Please get out of the new one
If you cant lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin.

Bob Dylan
