The following article is written by Leo Gerard. Most people have never heard of this man who is the president of the United Steelworkers. Like Jamie Dimon and George Soros, appearances are deceiving. This man is the enemy of the free market, Liberty and our republic. Know your enemies now: the lines are being drawn.

Silver-spooners like Romney and Ryan have never experienced real fiscal insecurity–and their policies reflect it
The rich, those born sucking silver spoons like Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, really are different from the middle class. The wealthy grow up and live their lives wrapped in security. That’s what gives them the arrogance to organize a posse to hold down a fellow prep school student and chop off his hair, mock NASCAR fans’ clothes and ridicule cookies offered by supporters. No matter what, Romney and Ryan will remain rich and secure.
By contrast, those born into poverty or the middle class live lives nagged by insecurity. They know their jobs could be offshored at any moment. They know their employers may raid their pensions in bankruptcy. Their major asset in life, their home, may have lost a third of its value when the Wall Street-inflated housing bubble burst. Rich would be great, but those born without trust funds work hardest just to attain a little security.
