    Default ‘The Right Has a Greater Appreciation of Labor’s Role Than We Do’

    Can Democrats figure out how to get unions back into the equation in 2020?

    Even as many Democrats appear to accept organized labor’s decline, Republicans recognize the crucial importance of unions and are determined to gut them further.

    The conservative who may understand labor’s ongoing significance best is Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform.

    In a 2017 essay for OZY.com, “Why Republicans (and Trump) May Still Win Big in 2020 — Despite ‘Everything’,” Norquist, a longtime anti-tax, anti-labor activist, argued that continuing the right-wing’s effort to crush labor’s power will be of vital importance to the outcome of the next election:

    Yes Lifer,excellent article because it speaks directly to what we progressives have saying all along...''right-wings effort to crush labor's power will be of vital importance to the outcome of the next election''...this has always been the right's HOLY GRAIL...

    So the obvious question would be...Where the Hell is the American ''LEFT''?...NOWHERE...Other countries at least have a strong left and Unions they can count on to STAND TOGETHER and FIGHT against the Corporate Elites and to be there to rebuild...Not in the USA...The America Left has for some time now ABANDONED economic policies for ''Identity Politics'' and ''Victimization''...The Corporate Democrats have nothing but CONTEMPT for the Working Class and push Koch brother and Corporate open borders and unfettered immigration,(under the guise of ''Compassion'' while tens of thousands Homeless Americans sleep in the streets),that keep WAGES LOW and harm the poorest citizens worst...

    The Corporate Democrats have done a fine job of ''Divide and Conquer'' between the Sexes and Races and Classes and NOTHING to bring people together to Fight against the REAL Enemy...

    Identity/Grievance politics is the curse of the LEFT in our time...If the Left can force itself to stay the Hell away from it,and make arguments along ECONOMIC LINES,which it should have been doing all along,and with a TRUE Progressive(Sanders/Gabbard/Warren)getting the Democratic nomination,it has the POTENTIAL in 2020 for a Political Landslide...

    I don't expect them to do it though...I do expect them,Pelosi,Schumer,Biden,and the rest of the Bought and Paid for Corporate Democrats,to continue their SUICIDAL practice of thinking they can win by appealing to Educated Intellectuals in large Urban and Coastal Cities...
