But because he believed in the American dream and rightfully worked literally non-stop for his generations to come, it was no surprise he would align himself with a political party in this country who professed and preached the principals closest to his own beliefs.
After all, the Democrats were his next door neighbors. The guys at work who shared ten minute breaks in the A-M and P-M of his daily shift. They opened the same kinds of lunch pails neatly packed at an unforgiving hour by a loving wife who shared his dreams of giving their children future lives they could only read about in high society magazines like Look and Life!
He believed his Union bosses when they told him the only way to get ahead in this world was to fight for their rights--lock arms and let 'the man' know who really made this country tick! He was right to have and believe in this philosophy, but unfortunately, those same union bosses more likely than not, we rubbing shoulders with the very people they claimed to have in a head-lock during crucial contract negotiations. (wink, wink) 'give the boys a few bucks and you've bought another four years of gazillions for the business.' It was a win-win situation for everyone, but more-so for shoulder-rubbing colluding Union bosses and management. And the boys gave tacit approval, while at the same time slipping quietly into Catholic confessionals to receive absolution for their sins, in the name of advancement of family--and of course a commitment to generous contributions for the church.
And perhaps it was at those community church social gatherings where aspiring local Democrat politicians reaped a harvest of sweet votes of confidence, solidifying another generational hold on loyalty from grandpa and 'the boys,' when they filed back into their working environment--preaching the attributes of good old Dick the Democrat over a lunch pail pickle loaf sandwich!
Generations of brainwashing using surreptitious methods, similar to these, have assured a metamorphosis of Grandpa's good old boy's Democrat party into a band of thugs which have little resemblance to the belief of extending a hand to the 'little guy' and promises for guidance along a yellow brick road to Utopia!
Enter present day smooth-talking political puppets like Barack Obama, befriended and financed by George Soros, and you have a winning combination when coupled with promises from the past and big bucks from the likes of a Billionaire buffoon, masquerading as a marauder of morals for Grandpa's naive and mentally vacant off-spring.
Indeed, Grandpa's Democrat party was cancer infiltrated by Liberal lunatics from the 60s who believed there really was a Wizard behind a curtain at the end of that yellow brick road. In fact, it was Norman Mattoon Thomas, a leading American Socialist, Pacifist and six-time candidate for the Socialist Party of America who said in a 1944 speech:
“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies.
Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” -- Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006
Senator Barack Hussein Obama, who in 2008 sweet-talked his way into the hearts and minds of Grandpa's gullible Democrat, Utopia-seeking off-spring. President Barack Hussein Obama. A President who surely will be remembered as leader of the United States who uploaded more Socialist programs upon an unsuspecting and brain-washed American people than good old Norman Mattoon Thomas could only have experienced in his wildest dreams.
Think about it. As grandpa rests peacefully in his eternal slumber spot, do you honestly believe he would have voted for a Socialist!
