Use common sense, vote Democrat

October 14, 2012
Weirton Daily Times

To the Editor,

This letter is in part a response to three letters titled, "Some thoughts and opinions," "Watch who we let influence us," and "Not a fan of either side."

One is praying for us to vote for Romney. One is cautioning us about Rush Limbaugh and other media people and another is criticizing Obama left and right.

Let me suggest we simply use common sense. We don't need others to sway our vote either way.

Ask yourself who fought for you when given what you needed for a decent chance in life. Who got you SS, Medicare, Medicaid, retirement pay, minimum wage, overtime pay, paid vacation time, workers rights, hospitalization and all the other benefits workers need to simply stay abreast with the standards of living.

Can you say Republicans helped you? No way! They fought us tooth and nail since 1930 with no let up.

This is not an opinion to sway anyone. This is a true fact that can be proven in any library to see for yourself.

Like a rose is a rose, a GOP conservative is a blockade in your road to your American dream.

The American worker never asked for more than to be able to pay the rent, feed their family and maybe buy a lottery ticket periodically.

That's not asking too much for your extended effort, your sweat and blood at times.

Don't bite the hand that feeds you.

Vote Democrat. That's what past history tells us is common sense.
