Posted on 11/14/2008 2:25:02 AM PST by Man50D
The official magazine of the Communist Party USA has lauded the important role of labor unions in electing Sen. Barack Obama, and quotes socialist-aligned labor leaders hoping the unions can work with the president-elect to enact policies related to jobs, retirement security and health care reform.
In a separate article, the Communist Party's Political Affairs magazine quotes a prominent socialist activist and longtime Obama friend petitioning the president-elect to push through a "single payer" health care system, or socialized universal medicine.
In an article titled, "Special Interest or Class Consciousness? How Labor Put Obama in the White House," Political Affairs reports on polling data released earlier this week revealing the extent of union support for Obama.
The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations, or AFL-CIO, sponsored a poll showing union members supported Obama by a 68-30 margin and strongly influenced their family members.
According to the survey, Obama won among white men who are union members by 18 points; union gun-owners backed Obama by 12 points, while union veterans voted for Obama by a 25-point margin. In the general population, Obama lost these groups by significant margins.

Mmm hmm. Now does somebody want to explain to me why we allowed the media to label OUR party the “red” one when we know WHICH party is brimming with Reds ?
I'm glad to see that the veil has been removed and the world can plainly see that the American union is just another branch of the communist party.
And, like most American communists today, they brazenly fly the American flag as part of the Orwellian newspeak (”communism is patriotic,” “if you love your country, you let other countries attack her,” “strength through non-defense,” “if you need anything that the government could provide, you aren't really free,” “hating America is the best way to display your love for America” all spoken by anti-Americans waving the flag or with an American flag sticker on their car).
Winers and Losers. With every election there are winners and there are losers. Lets look at them for this past election.
Communist Party Republican Party
Unions Working Americans
ACLU Freedom of Speech
ACLU 2nd Amendment
Homosexuals Our Children
Terrorists America and Civilization
So how did you make out with this election?
If you are a Homosexual Communist car carryng ACLU and Union member you hot the jackpot.......
If you are an American you lost big time.........
The obamabots at the plant where I work (agency shop) are still wearing their goofy “machinists for obama” t-shirts and pins. Funny thing is, if you talk to most of these people one-to-one without mentioning parties, just issues, they’re a socially conservative bunch. But, the union told them to vote “D”, and they’re all convinced the dems are working for the little guy, despite years of evidence to the contrary.
After years of being hourly, I just took a salary job there, and though the time and workload demands are considerably higher, I thank God every day that I’m no longer paying into the union protection racket.
Keep up the good work. Maybe, you will convert a few of them.
Hail to our Dear Leader!!! Where’s the Kool Aid?
No, the vote had NOTHING to do with the stock market meltdown just before the election, and Obama’s press blaming it on the Republicans...
You sure nailed it! I’m sure there are going to be many more losers in the near future.
Yeah, it used to be that the incumbent party was blue, and the challenger red.
But Red was a little too indicative of the ideology of the democrats.
The Communist Party USA is happy that 0bama won.
Hugo Chavez says “change has come to the north”
Two Soviet flags were waved at a DC rally following the election.
At least two campaign offices had Cuba/Guevera flags posted prominently on their walls.
But, no, don’t be absurd, 0bama’s not a Marxist!
“But, no, dont be absurd, 0bamas not a Marxist!”
Even if he isn’t a marxist he’s doing the work of the Communists — the left’s principles are exactly the same from socialism to communism.
But liberals are merely the enemy of the communist’s enemy: the capitalist.
They will be scuttled along with all the opposition if the hard-left gets a good grip on our throats — which is more than likely given current events.
