    A forgotten factor is fairness..
    The legislatures and executive branches of government are highly paid and have a pension that is many-fold more than mine..
    Yet, I have not heard word one on these people sacrificing one thing..
    We could take a chance and trust those in power, providing they sacrifice 20%, then we could give up our unions...for a set time frame of twenty years.
    Fairness and some economic common sense must rule the day..Taxes must be increased if they have become too low, if in the past, there have been ill-advised tax cuts.

    These people produce nadaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. I say we ban those guys too and see how long any of them stick around.
    If we are going to ban anyone, its should be the law-makers themselves...What have they done to merit their high pay and pension and benefits?
    20% of them should be cut, and the citizens will have to learn to be more self-reliant.

    As we all know.....Policing, Sanitation, and Delivery never existed before Unions were created.....

    Regress a century or two
    The police were goons hired to protect the power/money elite.
    Sanitation did not exist
    Delivery ?
    Teachers worked for little or no pay, they were women, before their rights even existed.
    Is this what you want ?

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