There are two hard and fast rules in American politics:

1. All Politics is local.

2. All politics is personal. 

I can tell you two things about this election.. The fact that more citizens in my county are now registered AND qualified to vote than has ever been the case...EVER. 68% (D). And every day of this early voting session of the General Election has, in my community, set a new daily early voting record. That's politics: local, and personal. Tennessee may yet turn Blue this year. 

I came to Tennessee from Southern Illinois. I was, for several years, a proud Illini before breaking my personal history of following the "Lincoln Trail". I am aware of Illinois politics. 

Sensata (previously Honeywell) in Freeport, Illinois has been the property of Bain Capitol for some time. After non-stop record setting quarters, Bain has decided to move the plant to China, for yet MORE profit. But, what of the employees left behind? 

After they train their replacement Chinese workers, they will be left to their own devices. Period. We'll spend some time today with some of them. Call in with your questions or comments, or join us in our lively chatroom during the live show. They have words to say which you should hear. Locally. Personally.


Join us as we highlight the activities, activism and activists of the Progressive Southern United States each Sunday afternoon, from 2:30 PM - 4:30 PM (Central Time). Call in and speak live with our hosts and guests, or join us in our live Chat Room during the show.
