7. As I have said before

I am not a socialist, I am an old line Roosevelt yellow dog Democrat. I know some on the left hate FDR for saving capitalism but I think it was good. But I am with you all the way. Racism, sexism, I want them gone! Homophia? What the hell has got to do with me? I've never understood why someone who has never recognized a gay person has against them? We need to pardon 4 million. One in prison and three out or more. Having to check the box "have you been" has hurt millions trying to get a job. We have been fighting wars of capitalism for centuries. Save the Earth must be first. So, my step one is to distroy the employer based benift system. We are all slaves to health insurance. I am a Teamster. We hold the power to crash the system. We pay our own insurance, so does the UAW. We have to stop paying. Yes, it means risk, unions have always had to risk. We have to stop being, I'll say it, pussies. If now isn't the time to fight, when? I was there in the 60s when we had the momentum. We can get it back now.
