Without Labor Unions, There is NO Democrat Party!
Democrats and their labor unions have painted themselves into a corner that they will not be able to escape. Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio and other states are about to eliminate public sector unions(1) and collective bargaining rights for state employees and not a moment too soon.
The assembly votes are coming down party lines and the reason is glaringly obvious. Without labor unions and the billions they pour into the Democrat Party, there will be NO Democrat Party.
Iceland, Greece, the EU nations and even the Middle East are in some stage of economic meltdown, all of it due to public sector over-spending mostly caused by the collective thuggery of international socialist labor unions. America is no exception, with most states considering the bankruptcy option to get out from under unsustainable public sector union contracts and unfunded pensions.
Face it—this is a war between international socialist labor unions and the taxpayers of the world stuck with a tab they can no longer afford to pay.
After bankrupting the manufacturing industry in nation after nation, labor unions have been in a steady decline for decades. Lost private sector union jobs have been replaced with public sector union jobs, all in an effort to keep the international socialist agenda alive and well in the Democrat Party by keeping those dollars rolling in via union dues.
The 3rd largest political juggernaut in America, The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees has been bankrupting governments across the country for years now, using their collective bargaining rights to destroy state, county and municipal budgets by holding taxpayers hostage at contract time.
Democrats are for it because this public sector union has invested over $43 million in Democrat power between 1990 and 2010. This union gives 99% of its political donations to Democrats, essentially nothing to Republicans over the last twenty years. That’s why Democrats vote for unions and against taxpayers at every opportunity.
The 6th largest political juggernaut in America is the American Association for Justice. This is the trial lawyer and judge association that has destroyed the American justice system from top to bottom and they have given over $33 million since 1990, almost all of it to Democrats.
In 2010 alone, this organization gave more than $2.8 million to Democrats, compared to only $73 thousand to Republicans. Ask again why your courts are aligned with international socialists, labor unions and anti-constitution Democrats.
The 8th largest political juggernaut in the U.S. is the National Education Association. This teachers union had the resources to invest over $32 million on politics since 1990, 93% of it to Democrats. In 2010, they gave over $2.2 million to Democrats compared to $131 thousand to Republicans.
Of course Democrats vote with international socialist unions and against taxpayers. The taxpayers hate greedy Democrats and without the unions, trial lawyers and judges, there would be NO Democrat Party today!
But the end is near and none too soon!
While everyone was focused on how many House seats Republicans picked up in 2010, few notice that Republicans took governorships and state legislatures away from Democrats all across the country.
It is these new Governors and state legislators who are leading the way towards freedom, liberty and prosperity in America once again, not the inside the beltway politicos in DC only concerned with feathering their own nests.
The time has arrived to bust the public sector unions entirely and make every state a right to work state!
Stand tall Governor Walker! Millions of angry taxpayers stand with you!
As Wisconsin unions rally to protest Gov. Scott Walker‘s emergency budget proposal that would get rid of most of the state workers’ collective bargaining privileges, video posted on YouTube appears to show teachers pulling high school students into the conflict.
The video, taken by Wisconsin’s conservative MacIver Institute, shows students from Madison‘s East High School claiming their teachers brought them to protests at the State Capitol and also openly admitting that they really don’t know why they’re there:
High school students in Wisconsin have staged walk-outs in support of their teachers over the last two days, much to the delight of liberal sites such as The Nation and the blog of the AFL-CIO.
The Appleton Post Crescent reports on some of those walk-outs:
Incensed by Gov. Scott Walker’s plan to end most collective bargaining rights from teachers and other public employees, about 200 Appleton East High School students filed out of class at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday chanting, “Save our teachers, save our school.”
Similar protests occurred Tuesday in school districts across Wisconsin, including large walkouts in Platteville, Sheboygan and Stoughton.
John Matthews, who heads the Madison teachers union, asked the school superintendent to close schools today because few teachers and staff represented by the union will be present.
Classes in some Madison schools were in fact canceled because 40 percent of the 2,600 members in the teacher bargaining unit had called in sick.
On Tuesday, The Nation, the home of revolutionary-lover Frances Fox Piven, praised the high school students:
Even before the protests hit the state’s capital, about a hundred high school students in Stoughton, Wisconsin, a city about 20 miles outside of Madison, walked out of class Monday morning to protest the governor’s proposal. And today, nearly 800 Madison East High School students also walked out to join the demonstration.
“Let’s show Gov. Walker that we care about learning, and the teachers are worth every cent that we pay to them,” Theron Luhn, a high school junior who helped organize the protest in Stoughton Monday, told one of the local newspapers The Capital Times.
So, too, did the AFL-CIO. “The students have been so energized,” AFSCME Local 2412 President Gary Mitchell told the AFL-CIO blog.
Other video shot at the protests Tuesday showed more comparisons between Walker and former Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak:
