    I realize that. But it takes something very hot to change one's life long held political views and loyalty to a political party. You're right about Illinois, Durbin is standing at 51% in the latest poll for Illinois senate seat, a 14 point lead. But senator really has nothing to do with inside politics of the state. But Chicago and Illinois is use to corruption. Louisiana use to be that way too.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Absolutely. One of the myriad of examples-is allowing the left to paint conservatives as dated, when in reality liberalism (more correctly statism and leftism) is actually the dated party of failure.

    In the scheme of things-conservatism is the radical political ideology.

    Are there any other Unions now stepping out with these one and telling the Democrats to knock their BS games off.....look you remember what Chris Matthews just got done doing with sending a message to the Democrats and the Left in this country. You know how it is.....if the Big Unions for Business are going to take a stand.....that will just leave the Federal Government's Union employees as their own Push back.

    Most of the lefts pundits even are accepting they will lose the Senate. So why do we all put up with the lefts tactics on avoidance and with anything they have to say out of their mouths. Shouldn't we be jumping them, hammering them, and setting them out for what they are? Until all that really is left.....is their pebble?

    It's too early to tell on the senate. Most political pundits/prognosticators have the republicans picking up between 3-8 seats. I have them at 4. Once the primaries are over, everyone will have a better grasp of how November is looking. Will there be any Mourdocks, Aikens, Angles, etc. is the question. The Democrats seem to have a better history at nominating candidate that can win instead of an ideological candidate that can't. This could happen in North Carolina, Georgia, Alaska, the GOP could shoot themselves in the foot in those three states and cost themselves control of the senate. Besides the Republicans have so many states that are up in the air right now whereas the democrats seemed to have a more unite front and settled on a single candidate in most of the races.

    I really haven't had much use for public sector unions, but think unions are a good thing in the private sector.

    I am looking at the point they made with 80% of whos who. Are going with the Republicans taking the Senate. Not so much the breakdown with the poll at this point of moment. Which now they are also looking at the Demos may even lose more house Seats than was thought.

    Does it bother you that the Unions are target the Democrats over Keystone? Or does it bother you more now.....that the Unions are against Obamacare?

    Is that why the left avoids the bad news.....deflects and then looks to make **** up on the fly?
    The only thing that bothers me is that assholes keep voting in Dems and Reps and expecting different results. Why do you think most elections aren't about what a candidate can DO, it's how bad the other candidate is? And when the candidates DO say what they are going to do, it's usually a bunch of lies.

    Riiiiiiight, so the right which has bad mouthed unions for years and wanted to end them, you think the unions are all of a sudden going to vote for the people that want to end them. Riiiiiiight, cool story bro.

    You are correct that big labor will go where their interests are, however, you are incorrect in thinking unions will go to the side (the right) that wants to end them.

    Well we said before that the Conservatives should be their own Party. Many have talked about those that do the same thing over and over againwith respects to the Pols.

    But barring all of that.....what can be played upon from Republican Principles? Not conservative. That which a Republic is about. Now what just a party is about.

    Re: Union threatens Retribution for House Dems Opposing Keystone.....

    26 straight years of Republican governors forgot to put over 300 million into the Teacher's Retirement fund.
    You should know better than to pass that garbage off on a web-site I'm on.

    Ever since the crook Big Jim Thompson was elected in 1977 for 14 straight years.
    Wasn't that COLA agreement nice he signed in 1989?
    Thompson now makes more from his pension than he did as Governor.
    And to think your Tribune actually told the truth on this.
    Why didn't you ?

    I did.....that's why I included Chicago which includes Crook County. Which is why you could never paint it out any other way. Course all the Current News Points out what Democrats are screwing over other Democrats that supported the Teachers and their Union

    Moreover its been over 50 year of The Democrats stealing the money out of City Workers Pensions. While Never putting in the money they were suppose to.

    But then we already knew you would only come with bits and pieces to the story.
