In the United States, Labor Day, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.
So much has changed in the last 5 years when the American Worker has lost ground to the impoverishing principles of an out of control government. With debt at an all time high, unemployment and underemployment at levels well beyond those of the “Great Depression”, and a failure of the Presidency to LEAD the country out of economic disarray, Labor Day 2013 takes on new meaning. The addictive drug of choice in Washington: continue spending at increasingly higher levels using borrowed funds from foreign governments.
We salute ALL American Workers. We also salute those who have remain unemployed and underemployed through no fault of their own. We take time to reflect on the American Dream, before it was bastardized by inappropriate government expansion, over-regulation and deceiving practices which have been instrumental in creating the new slavery – long term dependency upon a government to provide for the individual and the family.
It is time to restore the traditional American Dream. Enjoy this day and reflect on our situation. Join us as we work to restore Ethics, Civility and Honesty in Northampton Government.
