    In that case, you were a republican for the past 20 years! Am I right? Or do you just follow the bandwagon?

    During the last 20 years, of the top ten funders, only 2 corporations gave the big money to Democrats, the rest came from unions.

    I could be, but I reread it again and get the same results:

    '1 ActBlue
    2 AT&T Inc
    3 American Fedn of State, County & Municipal Employees
    4 National Assn of Realtors
    5 Goldman Sachs
    6 American Assn for Justice
    7 Intl Brotherhood of Electrical Workers
    8 National Education Assn
    9 Laborers Union
    10 Teamsters Union'

    Top All-Time Donors, 1989-2010 | OpenSecrets

    According to your site, of top ten donors, only 1 corporate donor gave more to Democrats than Republicans during the last 20 years.

    Anything and everything Republican politicians do is about politics, and their target is always how to win the 2012 election, nothing about Conservatism, or ways to help their constituents get jobs, or even realistic ways to balance the budget. It's really sad that a once well respected group would resort to a win at all costs petty politics.

    Rick, I cannot seem to get anyone who supports the Wisconsin unions to explain to me why public unions in the state deserve better collective bargaining rights than the Federal Public Union employees? What exactly has Obama done to give Federal Employees collective bargaining rights when he had a Democrat Congress for two years? States cannot print money and must have a balanced budget yet one of the biggest costs to the state is public unions and they don't negotiate with the people that pay their salaries.

    In case you did not "get it" the first time... my statement to you... was giving back to you what you told me.... All the exclamation points (those were clues that I was not serious and being sarcastic) should have tipped you off.
