    Right-except that govt is all up in unions and vice versa-look at the democrat parties major donors-they are unions. They take care of each other in a sham against the public.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Because passing exams and wearing a uniform dont FORCE contributions to one particular party. Its a violation of the 1st ammendment, under threat of losing your job.

    Why do you hate the 1st ammendment?

    It wasn't that many years ago, during one of California's many financial crises, that the politicians were directly consulting with the unions to find out what they ought to do to solve the problems and the unions all told them to act in the union's best interest. This isn't difficult to understand, the unions buy politicians all the time and it's not the conservative politicians they're purchasing.

    The dems used their influence to suppress the TEA party and other groups. Obama is the sitting POTUS and he fundraises like its cool, always has.

    I'm not sure that the Democrat Party's major donors are unions, but most of the union donations do go to Democrats.

    Do you see that as a problem?

    It seems to me that, if the Republicans want a bigger share of that pie, then they should be more pro labor.

    Dang liberals, always with their hands out.
    The point is you have to pay for it EITHER way, and they get to spend YOUR money for THEIR politics. Freedom of association, the enemy of unions.
    Its one reason for their demise.

    This is generally true, though there are agriculture unions here in CA that support the republicans, especially after all the crap going on in the central valley with the drought and delta smelt bull****.

    What do you mean by free market?
    I would be more inclined to follow the philosophies of Hayek. It's not Laissez-faire, but has a limited amount of proper law and regulation to ensure the free participation and interactions of the market. And when people mess up, they have to realized the consequences of such; the government doesn't bail out the losers. Or rather shouldn't.

    Um... yeah, that's right. The Democrat president fundraises for Democrats, and the Democrats oppose the TEA Party that identifies itself with Republicans.

    And, of course, Republican presidents stay out of the fund raising business, right?

    Money is the mother's milk of politics. If you're going to oppose funding for one party, then oppose it for the other as well. Actually, money has corrupted our entire political system, not just one party.
