American Values, Michael Moore, and President Obama

I am a believer that government is just like a big corporation. In our Democratic government everyone has an equal share of stock in our nation when they become of age to vote. This my friends is called Democracy. This ideal of Democracy is what President Obama, Michael Moore, myself and all Democrats believe to be just and right. When the government gives dividends to people like health care that is what should be expected as long as we can afford it. We can afford it, we can’t afford not to afford it, Romney himself had a similar plan to  Obama’s in one state.  According to Romney, such a health care plan was good for one state.  Such a plan would surely be even better for the whole nation because more are sharing the expense.

The government helps support the right for free speech and the right to organize for the smallest of businesses, called “workers”.  Michael Moore and President Obama support this concept.  This too is Democratic capitalism. There is nothing wrong with this, there is nothing non American about this.  The values supporting worker rights are what this nation was founded upon.

Additionally, the fact that the private sector is valuable  is nothing that Obama, or Michael Moore, or myself would disagree with and once again we are all capitalists, we are simply Democratic (read REAL AMERICAN) Capitalists, who believe that “All men are created equal…. etc.”

Let government do what it is good at, and the private sector economy do what it is best at.  Yet, never take away the capitalist right for workers to organize, as the smallest of businesses, to bargain in our free market economy. Anything less than this is certainly anti American and anti Democratic.

Also… Since the super wealthy have NEVER paid their fair share of taxes, asking them to pay more is certainly right.  Especially since they own almost all the wealth in the country and benefit most from everything taxes pay for, it is far MORE than FAIR that they should pay more in taxes.

The big banks and not hard working Americans caused what was nearly a depression.  This was on the Republican “watch”, and Obama shouldn’t be blamed for it.  Ungoverned unbridled greed almost destroyed America through the practices of big bank corporations, and now we find them trying to blame the results on President Obama.  This is patently ridiculous.

Why did our nations careen toward disaster?  Why is it still staggering from the economic blow? Because of a lack of proper government over sight.

Now Republicans scream that government needs reducing, giving more power to the banks and corporations that brought us to the brink of disaster.  Those who got bailed out by money mostly supplied by workers and their families now are making billions but still aren’t hiring.  They are acting in bad faith.  They are now telling American workers that we can’t afford to take care of our retirees and that we can’t have health care that everyone can afford.  They say that Michael Moore was wrong about health care.  They gave their CEO’s raises with the money…

Constantly Republicans call it patriotic to speak badly about our government.  Yet the right loves the military and practically worships it as an institution. Let them realize this is a government run institution and a very successful one.

Michael Moore is a national hero. He stands up for fair play and common sense, he stands up for the inherent right of all Americans, not just a lucky few, “to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”.

Until common sense, the right to free speech, the right to fair play, and the right for the smallest of businesses (called workers) to organize and have a voice and dignity, become anything but American, Michael Moore remains one of this nation’s greatest friends.

Michael Moore is fighting for American values every day and what can we do to help defend American values?  What is our part?  We can vote.

We have a great chance to support American values long before 2012 though.  Obama has fought for us from the beginning, but he needs our help.  Audacious hope means audacious effort and audacious political support. Don’t be caught letting down our American dreams and hopes for the future.  We can do more than just vote, we can organize to get others to vote and educate them on the issues. Get involved, start here.

Brother David “Mitch” Sotelo
