    I call BS on that

    as long as there are net tax payers being parasatized by net tax consumers there will be two parties

    Not after Citizens United...it will be one party and it will be called the CORP. PARTY.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    then why won't walker take all the concessions the unions are offering? this is all about collective bargaining, not the budget.

    I have no idea what you are talking about. Use more words... especially mine since you seem to think you know what I have said.

    your phony baloney "winner" has nothing there about corruption that relates to the Wisconsin labor unions. Nothing.

    If we used such low standards of general association to indict other groups, no school child could be within 1,000 feet of a Catholic church because some priests have molested kids.

    Union Corruption | National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation

    Under Foundation-won precedent in the Supreme Court case Communication Workers v. Beck, the Court held that nonmember employees in states without Right to Work protections for its workers may still be forced to pay certain union fees as a condition of employment, but they do have the right to refrain from paying union dues spent for activities like political activism, lobbying, and member-only events.

In September 2010, Smith and SEIU union officials reached a settlement in which she received the difference of full union dues and the union fees that she is forced to pay for the union bosses’ so-called “representation
