Why would center-right America elect Democrat politicians, who have increasingly revealed themselves not only to be left, but hard left, and who close observers of current events can’t help but be aware do not like this country or mean it well? Because elections aren’t about common sense — they are about money. Unions have it, and as events in Wisconsin and throughout the Midwest have made crystal clear, the Democrats are their party, bought and paid for. Via OpenSecrets.org:
Follow the list further and you’ll see that other big spenders that lean overwhelmingly toward the Dems include the National Association of Letter Carriers, AFL-CIO, Sheet Metal Workers Union, International Association of Fire Fighters, Plumbers and Pipefitters Union, United Steelworkers, United Transportation Union, Ironworkers Union, American Postal Workers Union, National Air Traffic Controllers Association, Transport Workers Union, Seafarers International Union, Amalgamated Transit Union, et cetera, ad nauseam.
Where do unions get all this money to spend installing Democrats in power? In the case of public sector unions, they get it from you.
Obama’s slavish devotion to unions may explain even better than his support from liberal media idiots impressed by his skin color how a guy with an alarming background and no serious qualifications could become president of the USA.
Don’t expect Democrat politicians to act in America’s interest. Expect them to act in the interests of the unions that own them.
Unions own General Motors now. They own the Democrat Party. They own the White House. When they own America, socialism will have arrived.
