Public Employee Unions - Greed and Corruption

Public Employee Unions, which now have the bulk of union members in the United States, have been feeding at the trough for years. The game is simple. Take union dues and use them to support Socialist candidates for office, at all levels of government, that will then provide public employees with higher compensation and benefits than are typical in the private sector. Collective bargaining has been used to extract pensions and other benefits that are unsustainable. The Public Employee Union answer to everything is higher taxes to pay their members higher and higher salaries and benefits so that they can contribute union dues. Well, the party is over. The balloon has burst. Many states and the federal government are bankrupt.

Socialist President Obama just submitted another budget for 2012 with a $1.1 trillion (not billion) dollar deficit. The federal government has grown by more than 200,000 employees since Obama came into office, which should be no surprise because Obama is owned, lock, stock and barrel by the Public Employee Unions. Obama is just paying back is crony supporters. And, there is now a war going on in many states. Either the people will regain control of their state, through their elected representatives, as is happening in Wisconsin, or the Public Employee Unions will continue to dominate the state stealing from the taxpayers to fulfill their greed and corruption. Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin told President Obama to mind his own business, like maybe trying to balance the federal budget, rather than meddle in the affairs of Wisconsin. In addition, it is time that WE THE PEOPLE take back our states and our country by saying HELL NO to the Public Employee Unions.

Collective Bargaining should be eliminated for Public Employee Unions. The ability for Public Employee Unions to contribute to political campaigns should be ILLEGAL because it is a conflict of interest. Public employees should not have the right to strike. And, public employees should not receive compensation and benefits that are any better than what is common in the private sector. If that is not fair, then public employees are free to work anywhere else they want. Specific to what is happening in Wisconsin as state employees and teachers are calling in sick to protest in the streets, they should be FIRED.

President Ronald Reagan got it exactly right when he fired the air traffic controllers years ago for striking and making demands that were not sustainable. WE THE PEOPLE have had enough!! Since Socialists will never confront the Public Employee Unions that own them, we must elect Conservatives in 2012 and 2014 that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation in our country.

We must take back our country in 2012 and 2014 by electing Conservatives who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Public Employee Unions, Socialists in the last 98 years, our current or former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country, which means confronting the Public Employees Unions as is happening in many states. We can do it. We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.
