  •  Family values are more important to progressives (9+ / 0-)

    than conservatives.  But we are inclusive and we mean ALL American families.

    * We believe that fair labor standards need to be enforced because children need time with their parents.

    * We believe that a mandated vacation is important because it gives families more opportunity to spend time together.

    * We believe that we should all pool health risks so that we all can get by and that families don't go bankrupt due to ill fortune of severe illnesses.

    * We believe that there should be single payer so that the costs of maintaining health won't be so  wasteful of our finite resources.  So that we can afford good education for our children.

    * We believe we as a society can rise or sink together.

    •  to Satya1 - you are absolutely right (7+ / 0-)

      American working class people have to have the same type of unity that the rich routinely display in taking care of each other. When interests converge you don't have to have a conspiracy of the rich, it is understood if you go to the same university, if you are a member of the same fraternity or sorority, if you serve on the same boards, you don't need a conspiracy amongst rich people to understand there is a convergence of interests.

      The rich stick together and the working class must likewise stick together. We must support each other in order to survive the GOP led class warfare in America.

      sig...You just ran into a hardcore progressive who's just another working stiff with an MBA degree & therefore a vociferous labor union supporter [smile]
