Fascism is recognized to have first been officially developed by Benito Mussolini, who came to power in Italy in 1922. To sum up fascism in one word would be to say "anti-liberalism".

...............Socialism and Democracy. Political doctrines pass; peoples remain. It is to be expected that this century may be that of authority, a century of the "Right," a Fascist century."

This is cross posted from an AFL-CIO E-mail. We are not alone, labor is strong and we will take this fight for our families and our friends to congress.
Thank You, to the AFL-CIO for not letting Maine or the U.S. down.

Last Wednesday nearly 50 leaders and members from locals all over the state gathered for a training on how to defeat Tabor II and the gutting of the Excise Tax. AFSCME, APWU, IAFF, IAM, IATSE, IBEW, IBT, SMWIA, UNITE HERE, USW, IAM, and others were all represented.
The turnout reflected the breadth and depth of concern among working Mainers who will be devastated if Tabor II or the Excise Tax question pass this November. Question 4 (Tabor) and question 2 (Excise Tax), if passed will strangle public services while we are in the worst economic climate since the great depression.
To fight back union leaders and members were equipped with the tools and the knowledge, at Wednesday's training to get the message out that Tabor II and gutting the Excise Tax are no good for Maine.
The highlight of the training was a teleconference presentation given by Carol Hedges of the Colorado Fiscal Policy Institute from Colorado. She detailed how Tabor had devastated the Colorado economy and urged Mainers to fight back. We're rejected versions of TABOR twice before it's time we finally put it down for good.
In Solidarity,
Ed Gorham, Maine AFL-CIO President
Matt Schlobohm, Maine AFL-CIO Political Director

Nurses Stand Up For Universal Health care  

 The Maine State Nurses Association continues to fight for H.R. 676 Universal Single-Payer Health care. In her op-ed published last Saturday in the Bangor Daily News Cecile Martin declared.
"Why are we willing to watch as countless Americans suffer under the burden of a health care system that insists on payment “at the time services are rendered,” as if the purchase of health care is on the same level as buying a movie ticket or a new dress? Why are we satisfied with a system where medications are so costly that many either go without needed medications or skip doses? Why are we subsidizing the health care of our representatives in Washington, who don’t seem interested in improving the care of their constituents?" Click Here to Read the Rest
The Maine AFL-CIO stands with Cecile and the MSNA in demanding a single-payer solution to our health care crisis- the only means by which every citizen can get access to quality affordable health care.
