    actually in union run cities prevailing wage nonsense screws the taxpayers

    Drop the free trade policies and go back to fair trade standards we had for most of the history of this country where we have tariff free trade with countries who meet fair labor and environment standards we set and place varied tariffs on countries' goods who don't meet these standards. Economic and environmental standards that we already hold up for ourselves. Not dumping raw waste in the neighboring rivers. No child labor. No prison labor. No slave labor.

    and what will be the ramifications of that in terms of countries such as China, India, etc that supply so much of our consumer goods?

    I know, I know, pick me!
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    You point to money in elections which the right wing owns far and away beyond the left... you don't even look at the fact that ALEC is busy between elections writing bills and handing it to their stooges who then just submit them without even reading them.

    These are the facts. Ignore them if you like.
    LOL

    You've presented no facts, so your opinion is easy to ignore. The fact is the left decimates the right in spending and in political activity. Perhaps you should avoid proving you are woefully lacking in any true facts on the subject other than those you have been led to believe.

    Yes, because you'd only be making about half of what you are paid if the union didn't exist. High rise construction jobs were paying upwards of $25/Hr. when the carpenters union held the contracts in Dallas in 1982. After they were ousted, the same jobs paid $14/Hr. to start.

    Everyone is also freeloading who did not serve in the military. They should be forced to give their votes to military members.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    There are many who feel Americans cannot make changes to other countries who have their own culture and customs. This was an especially common cliche in the Middle East. Now you want to do it through trade?

    This would cripple the USA economically and would not have an effect anywhere. In fact the way to change people is to open the markets in order that cultures can change and adapt to modern times. We can already see the positive changes made in China and India through trade and how their countries are changing as a consequence. This is no time to return to revisit retrogressive areas such as Smoot–Hawley Act.

    Perhaps it's time the Draft was reintroduced. There'd likely be fewer Red and Blue States and more 'American' States.
