    In his time in the Illinois's legislature Abraham Lincoln did almost the same thing.

    could have, but did not believe they needed to, as they have their own rules.

    The Dems were chicken ****s for running away when they realized they'd lose the vote.

    There is no such thing as a "union right". There are legal actions permitted to them through law, and those actions can be prohibited the same way.

    Repealing the 20th century is not as easy as some thought it would be.

    Thanks BD for that bit of breaking news. It brightened my day.

    the ones who left the state prevailed

    their strategy worked

    by running away, they did not lose
    they eventually won, as cited by the OP

    there are all kinds of union rights
    that you are ignorant of them does not mean they do not exist

    Any privilege a union has is granted through law, not through constitutionally enumerated rights.
