You are correct in that unions, composed of employees and funded by involuntary employee contributions, contribute heavily toward political campaigns. However, this singular factor does not, in fact, equate unions and businesses. I can't speak on the ability of Unions to punish those who disagree w/ its choice of political candidate but I imagine it's severely limited. A business, however, could withhold raises, refuse promotions, or outright fire the individual for disagreeing. For this reason, the actions of the business are substantially more dangerous.

the Balance of Power has shifted in America from the Citizens and their Government to Companies and their Owners (stockholders and company brass)


now you know why things are going down the shiatter. Obama is trying to stop the slide but so many Americans insist on being slaves in the Free Democratic Republic they were born in.


tisk tisk.

Unions are suppose to represent their members.

Companies represent their Owners (stockholders) and their brass (CEO, CFO, etc)

guess who's winning???

I just donated $35 to Obama. It's my first actual political donation ever. I did it to spite assholes like Mr. Allen and all these other farkers using soft force to pressure their employees to vote for Romney and/or donate to Romney.

If Obama is scaring all these farking plutocrats, he must be doing something right.

I've CSB'd this before but two friends of mine were faced with this before (one was even told his first check donation wasn't big enough and to write another). Yes it's illegal, and yes they were not even close to subtlety threatened with sudden job loss if they failed to comply and/or made a stink out of it.
