Patriot Convention

Why I Can Vote With a Clear Conscience

This is the one election that in all of our history is a fork in the road that we had better choose wisely.

This next president will appoint several Supreme Court justices.

That alone should be enough to make everyone sit up and take notice.

If HRC is allowed to stack that Supreme Court, the country is gone.

It is that serious. There is no turning back, none.

We will not have the luxury to say, we can hang for another 4 years.

The communist planks are all in place…

...that ball is at the finish line and just needs that last punt over the goal posts and it is game over.

That one issue will have ramifications for decades.

Your children and grandkids will experience the full weight of that one issue alone.

Why Twinkies and not the union?



Editor and Publisher John H. Walker
TARBORO — I found it offensive to watch members of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union in Rocky Mount celebrating the demise of Hostess.

As is always the case in contract negotiations, there are very few who know the entire story, but according to published information, Hostess is said to have asked the union workers to take a $2 per hour pay cut and pay an increased portion of their health care costs.

Rather than bite the bullet like so many Americans have, the union celebrated when Hostess said it had no choice but to cease operations.

So tell me ... what difference does it make that you “stood your ground” when you you wound up standing on quicksand?

Rather than take a $2 cut to $13 an hour, you’d rather keep your $15 wage — without any hours!

That’s okay ... even though his comment wound up hurting him, you are among the 47 percent Mitt Romney referred to at a fundraiser.

It doesn’t matter to you because the new America ... the socialist America ... will take from the wealthy to ensure you have provisions.

I would ask you to remember the words of Thomas Jefferson, who said, “The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”

In later years, there brands other than Twinkies and Wonder Bread ... there were Ho-Hos, Ding Dongs and Zingers and they are now selling online like the great sellers they always were.

I remember a couple of other products ... Hostess Cupcakes and Snoballs. and, of course, there was always the claim that Wonder Bread built strong bodies 12 ways.

It’s a shame it’s Hostess folding and not the union.
