SEIU Endorses Obama Re-Election

As I read the memorandum in front of me, I am amazed how blind Americans are, how naïve, ignorant, credulous, and unable to discern fact from fiction, reality from fantasy. How much more proof do they need before they realize our country is on the path of purposeful destruction?

Service Employees International Union (SEIU), with its 2.1 million dues paying members had announced on November 16, 2011, “with great pride and a sense of purpose,” that they were endorsing President Barack Obama for re-election.

“President Obama is the only candidate for president who shares our vision of America as a land of opportunity for everyone. We need a leader willing to fight for the needs of the 99 percent, and stand with hard working families to say that the world’s wealthiest corporations must pay their fair share.”

Is this the vision of socialist America where almost 50 percent of citizens already pay no federal income tax and receive welfare from the producers? Is this the vision where pot-smoking youth occupy our parks demanding handouts while preaching Marxism?

Is this the vision of America where working Americans support millions of illegal aliens who take advantage of our lax law enforcement when foreigners cross the border illegally, drop anchor babies, use our emergency rooms for medical care, our schools and universities for educating their children, and take jobs from American citizens?

Our leader does not fight for the needs of all Americans. His needs, golfing, vacationing, entertaining lavishly at taxpayer expense, or his favorite hobby, non-stop campaigning, come first. He punishes companies that are not supporting his plan for America and rewards companies who have contributed heavily to his campaign coffers.

Congressman Frank Wolf remarked on the floor of the House on November 16, 2011, “General Electric, the nation’s largest corporation, had a very good year in 2010 but GE paid zero taxes in 2010. At the same time, the Congressional Research Service found that the October 2008 issue of China Taxation magazine published top corporate taxpayers in the commercial services sector. The Beijing subsidiary of GE was number 32.”

The 99 percent have been overlooked by the head of President Obama’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, GE chairman, Jeffrey Immelt, who announced recently that the headquarters of its 115-year old X-ray business would be moved from Wisconsin to Beijing.

Fifty percent of GE’s workforce is overseas. A joint venture between GE and the Chinese firm AVIC was announced to develop avionics systems for jets. If the president cared so much for the 99 percent, would he not make sure jobs would be created here and repatriated from China?

Is it a good idea to provide the PLA with advanced avionics technology at a time when the Chinese are developing aeronautics and space exploration programs? Is this not a national security issue?

The SEIU memo continues, “Our economy and democracy have been taken over by the wealthiest one percent.” The truth is, wealthy individuals are being threatened and blackmailed by the left on a daily basis.  Our country has been taken over by Marxists and anti-American individuals who wish nothing but the failure and de-development of America from a super-power to a third world nation.

The SEIU memo to its members says, “These bankers and CEOs have used their wealth and excessive political influence to treat our state and federal governments like their personal cash drawer – spending lavishly on elections and then pressuring legislators to give them even more instead of creating jobs. It shows the results.”

Was it not unions that spent hundreds of millions of dollars to elect Democrats to Congress and President Obama in order to influence the outcome of legislation favoring and benefiting unions?

Was it not ACORN protesting outside the homes of bankers and CEOs with the intent of shaming them into giving mortgage loans to people with shady credit scores? Were certain Congresspersons not urging bankers to make these loans? Did this move not exacerbate the housing bubble crisis?

Corporations are not creating jobs because they are overregulated, EPA is denying permits, business confidence under this administration is at its lowest, and corporations are afraid to hire because of the uncertainty of taxation and the foreseen high cost of Obamacare per employee.

SEIU’s president says, “We know there needs to be a pathway to citizenship for every immigrant worker.” The left now calls illegal aliens “immigrant workers,” last year it was “undocumented workers.” No matter how they spin it, the left wants amnesty for illegal aliens because they want new cardholders paying dues to unions and new automatic Democrat voters. It does not matter to liberals that the majority of Americans do not want amnesty.

Our President has had three years, a few billion dollars job stimuli, and many opportunities to create jobs. It never was his intent to create jobs – he likes people being dependent on the government dole. People who cannot find jobs, especially young people with college degrees, have nobody to blame but themselves for choosing perennial poverty by voting for Obama in 2008 and by choosing unmarketable degrees.

Mr. Obama has presided over the largest spending spree in the history of the U.S., out of control debt that threatens our national security. Aided by both Republicans and Democrats in Congress who are unwilling to set a debt ceiling, he will not stop spending until we have reached an insurmountable debt that many future generations will not be able to repay. It is like giving a child total control of the candy jar.

“We know that health care, elder care and other vital services must be available for all our families,” says the SEIU President in her letter, which solicits $10 in re-election campaign donations. 
We already have the best and most generous health care system in the world available for all families, including illegal alien ones. Nobody is refused medical care in our emergency rooms. Foreign nationals come to America legally for medical treatment because we have the best-trained and brightest physicians in the world and the fastest service.

Insurance issues across state lines should have been addressed first and the fraud within the healthcare system. Instead, Obamacare increased the cost of healthcare and health insurance. In order to offer everything to everybody as falsely promised, rationing and death panels had been introduced in the massive bill that we had to “pass first in order to know what’s in it.” This one bill will add trillions of dollars to our future national debt.

“President Obama is looking to turn things around, but he needs help from all of us to be heard over his wealthy opponents, people who seem to believe that the only thing wrong with the economy is that they have to share it,” says SEIU President Mary Kay Henry.

People have heard President Obama loud and clear. No matter how many times he repeats his canned rhetoric, none of his plans, schemes, bailouts, stimuli have worked, none of them. He cannot turn things around because he does not know how. Furthermore, he has no intention of doing so.

Mr. Obama is a wealthy man himself, much wealthier than he was when he took office.  He knows that wealthy people cannot and do not keep all wealth for themselves, they spend it and reinvest it in order to create more wealth. In the process, they create jobs and elevate the economic status of many Americans.

Although we cannot blame all the economic problems on President Obama’s leadership and his failed policies, he is the captain of the ship of state.

Pandering to economic dolts and people who are asleep is a very stealthy tool to manipulate the masses into automatic donor compliance and SEIU has a large membership.

SEIU President continues in her letter, “Just last month, congressional supporters of the one percent blocked President Obama’s latest job proposals. They claimed that we could not afford to invest in creating jobs in the United States and then suggested another round of tax cuts for wealthy corporations and the one percent. I have a word for that: “ridiculous.”

Jobs were indeed created by this administration in the past three years with American taxpayer dollars – in China, Finland, Mexico, and Brazil.

Past economic history has proven that every time taxes were cut, government revenue increased, and small corporations, most of which have a capital of $100,000, created jobs. We only have 500 or so large corporations. If we confiscated everything corporations own and their profits, it could only offset our huge national debt for a short period of time while the greedy spending in Washington would continue.

It is incomprehensible that people are unable to see through the disingenuous statements made in this SEIU call to action memo to re-elect Obama President. The seemingly small $10 donation will be their economic demise. Fighting and knocking door-to-door to re-elect a losing president assures a bleak future for the so-called 99 percenters. If he is re-elected, the economy will take an irreversible slide into bankruptcy. We will become the banana republic he planned to “fundamentally transform” us into all along.
