SCRIBE ARTICLE FOR THE NOVEMBER 2008 POSTAL RECORD

 

At the National Convention our Union endorsed Barack Obama for president of the United States. As our NALC Executive Vice President, Fred Rolando, pointed out in the July Postal Record, the choice for Letter Carriers and all poor and working people is crystal clear. Obama has a 100 percent voting record for working families while John McSame (as Bush), I mean McCain, has a zero percent voting record for working families. McCain voted for tax breaks for the millionaires and billionaires, supports the U.S. "health care" system that leaves 40 million people with no health care and wants to leave our troops in Iraq for 100 years!

If anyone hears that they are not voting for Barack Obama because of the color of his skin, challenge them on this. If it is a family member, challenge them. If it is a co-worker, challenge them. We cannot remain silent when racism rears it's ugly head! And remember, if you want to keep your job vote for Obama. McCain has stated that he wants to privatize the Postal Service which would rip up our Union contracts. We would all be replaced with workers making 10 dollars per hour with little or no benefits! McCain has repeatedly voted to privatize federal jobs. Check out his voting record in the Senate in 2003, 2004 and 2006.

A VOTE FOR BARACK OBAMA IS A VOTE TO IMPROVE THE LIVING CONDITIONS FOR ALL POOR AND WORKING PEOPLE AND THEIR LOVED ONES! Let's do everything in our power to get Barack Obama elected!
