Earl Sholley on Honoring America's Labor Force
Earl Sholley demonstrates in the following message that he understands the values and work ethic that helped make America great as well as lead to the creation of a prosperous life style for so many American workers and their families. He also understands that those values are now under assault by the Obama administration and Barney Frank, but believes it is not too late to begin turning things around. Vote for Earl Sholley for Congress from the Massachusetts 4th Congressional District in the September 14th Republican Primary Election and take the first step towards removing Barney Frank from office and stopping President Obama's socialist anti/jobs agenda that is intentionally destroying our free market capitalistic system dead in it's tracks.
Sholley for Congress
For Immediate Release
September 3, 2010
Labor Day is September 6th. It began as a celebration of the labor movement in America, and then was voted as a National Holiday in honor of workers by Congress on June 28, 1894. Now it's just another holiday celebrating the end of summer.
In the early days, America's labor force enabled this country's citizens to achieve the highest standards of living and to produce the greatest production of goods and services the world has ever known. Within 200 years, America's labor force had created something here in America, that Europeans weren't able to enjoy- the American Dream. Great American presidents knew that free markets and capitalism worked best when government stayed out of the way.
Today, thanks to Mr. Obama and members of Congress like Barney Frank, our free market system is dying. Burdened with high taxation and suffocating regulation, our successful capitalist model is purposely being destroyed by the Obama administration with the help of Congressmen like Barney Frank through the systematic elimination of the traditional ideals of individualism, hard work, opportunity and success.
Today, Congressmen like Barney Frank see the laborer not as an individual with hopes and dreams for a better life for himself and his children, but as a vote in exchange for empty promises that will keep him employed on the taxpayers' dime. Mr. Obama and socialist cronies like Barney Frank offer collectivism in place of individualism, and socialism in place of capitalism. The American worker deserves better than this, and if you send me to Congress, I pledge that I will fight for smaller government by putting forth initiatives to cut the chains that shackle the backbone of our American economy- small businesses. I will work for smaller, more efficient government by offering legislation to cut, not trim, useless and redundant departments and programs, and I won't give in to the go-along-to-get-along mentality we've seen so much of from progressive Republicans in Congress. Go to my website at http://sholleyforcongress.us and read my Pledge to the People. Those who know me, know my word is my bond.
The party's over for career politicians, and it's time to put our financial house in order so that the American people can be proud once again to lead the world in standards of living and production of goods and services. The American work ethic is not dead; it's just been beaten up by bureaucrats like Barney Frank.
It is appropriate, therefore, that we pay tribute on Labor Day, not to the labor unions or to the labor bosses, but to the people who have made this nation great- the American worker.
