    Liberals are more supportive of unions.

    Why would you say that? Tell you what old boy, how about we legally forbid ANY special interest group to make political contributions of ANY party or individual candidate?
    That of course would include the NRA and U.S. Chamber of Commerce as well as all unions.
    What do you say?
    Thanks from BDBoop

    Meaning it's basically magical thinking to allege an organization that is inherently the way that it is "wasn't meant to be" the way that it is. Might as well say "the NRA wasn't meant to be political." Really?

    First lets stop all government money that goes to special interest groups which would include the NAACp and Planned Parenthood and La Raza

    Negotiating contracts against government is inherently political, or so argues Mark Janus.

    Unions have always relied heavily on mandatory representation and mandatory dues.
