  Barone on the “Dead” Tea Party

” But there’s a pattern here that the big liberal press has been reluctant to recognize: Candidates from the GOP establishment are

This is a no-brainer . Given that the union leaderships are out to maintain their cushy lifestyle and power rather than enrich their members .

“Popquiz, hotshots*: You have public-employee unions that force public-sector employees to
pay dues and make the state act as their bagman. The state refuses to collect dues and changes the law to make dues and union membership entirely voluntary. What do
people do ? That’s easy … they quit paying the dues : “

Just unbelievable , but then again , we are in the era of “Hope & Change”

“The following is NOT a work of fiction. It did take place. It took place in the most liberty rich country in the history of the world. It didn’t happen in one of the old Soviet Eastern Bloc nations.

He’s an average, hard working American trying to live his life the best way that he knows how. He operates a consulting business out of his home in Asheville, North Carolina. He cares about his country and he believes, like most of us here, that Americans have the right to question those in government that we may disagree with.
