"The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism — ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. ”

Sad news today; I have confirmed through two different sources that longtime Steamfitters Union leader and Democratic activist Roy Turner has passed away.
Please keep Roy's family and the Steamfitters Union in your thoughts and prayers.
