    at the field level, normally yes

    but larger unions have bigger budgets to fund operating costs smaller unions cannot

    Do you really have to use Young Turk? Really?

    And yes, it is legal, but I think underhanded. I feel the same way about what some unions do as well.

    But it does not mean you vote that party!

    If things go the way things are where the 1% will get even richer and more powerful while the middle class shrinks and serfdom emerges, there is a possibility that a revolution could occur. Remember the French Revolution where ol' Louis XIV and his lovely wife Marie and hordes of other members of the 1% class lost their heads literally?

    As the guillotine rusts, so does freedom.
    On the outside, trickling down on the insiders.
    We won't live free until the 1% live in fear.
    Hey, richboys! Imagine the boot of democracy stomping on your faces, forever.

    Is it wrong to warn employees that further taxation could lead to fewer jobs? Absolutely not. But it is wrong to not turn in employee voter registration cards just because they may not vote the way you want them to.

    However, this guy does not represent every CEO and every "rich" person in America. If he was normal, he wouldn't be on TV. He's on TV because he's a jackass. And not just any jackass, but a colossal jackass.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    If he wanted to break the law by forcing my vote for Romney I'd break the law and force my fist into his fat overly-red nose...
    Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?
    - Abraham Lincoln

    Before the war is ended, the war party assumes the divine right to denounce and silence all opposition to war as unpatriotic and cowardly.
    - Robert M. LaFollette, Wisconsin Governor and U.S. Senator

    God, how patient are Thy poor! These corporations and masters of manipulation in finance heaping up great fortunes by a system of legalized extortion,
    and then exacting from the contributors--to whom a little means so much--a double share to guard the treasure!
