This is the New Corporatism. The Democratic Party, union leaders, the president, the DNC, and socialist activists in this country have totally misread the current situation.
Citizens now face a battle against an entrenched political class made up of government employees, their union leaders, media, the wealthy and politicians that support attempts to shout down reform that will end the public employee union strangle hold on the future of this country!
These unionistas don’t represent more than 10% of working families in the United States, if that. But they want us to pay for their sinecure, healthcare, pensions, and high salaries, when ordinary Americans cannot pay the rent, mortgage, face foreclosure, loss of their own pensions, and cannot pay for food, good education, or healthcare.
It is time to stand against those that would would make the people serve the state and its employees instead of the other way around.
Make every state a right to work state. Enforce fair and secret union elections. Eliminate forcing union members to pay dues that go to political activity instead of workplace negotiations. Eliminate closed shop monopolies nationwide.
