    That's the response most union stewards and those in union leadership positions most love from their membership.

    Like supporting candidates that will support them and their ideas? That is the bottom line for these other politicians like Corker. Unions won't support him so they are a force to be reckoned with. Then you have people like Norquist and the Kochs who don't like unions because their agenda conflicts with their model legislation being pushed through by such organizations as ALEC. Absolute power corrupts!

    And really, many people out of work are choosing not to work for a place that is unionized??? Why exactly?

    No, it's called slinging stuff against a wall to see what sticks.

    What in earth does that have to do with anti union legislation being pushed through groups like ALEC supported by such conservatives as Norquist and friends?

    But it was the workers who ultimately rejected the union, right?

    They use the dues money to support the Democratic Party. Not every worker views that as being in his or her interest.

    Why do you object to conservatives engaging in political action? If it's OK for your side, why not for the other?
