Maintaining unions and collective bargaining rights are critical to this process and supporting ideas or individuals intent of destroying these rights are anathema to our ultimate goals.
What we are seeing around the world right now is a breakdown in the ability to meet those needs.
Hell son, when you have more people in the department of agriculture than farmers, something has got to give.
Thinking one party is going to give you an advantage is just another way of saying you want to cheat others to get more.
The closer we move to equality of treatment for all, the better off we will all be, this includes taxes, subsidies and any other favorable treatment by fiat.
People squawk all the time about equal rights, but we never see them step up to the plate and bat for equal responsibility.
So far the war to pry some advantage from your fellow man doesn't seem anywhere near an end. Take a long hard look at the fat cat bailouts over the last two years and tell me how they support the working man.
Printing money to support gross and unneeded massive debt will hurt us all.
Still waiting for any historical facts at all to support union favoritism by any party.
