A near-perfect scam — and all that was required for its ongoing success was the ignorance of those being fleeced. That would be you, in case you didn’t know.
Unions, most of whose members are public employees, gave Democrats some $400 million in the 2008 election cycle. The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, the biggest public employee union, gave Democrats $90 million in the 2010 cycle.
Follow the money, Washington reporters like to say. The money in this case comes from taxpayers, present and future, who are the source of every penny of dues paid to public employee unions, who in turn spend much of that money on politics, almost all of it for Democrats. In effect, public employee unions are a mechanism by which every taxpayer is forced to fund the Democratic Party.
A nice, tight, and very vicious little circle indeed. Don’t be fooled by all the whining about the poor, put-upon “little guy” here. This fight is all about power, from first to last, and nothing more. The Democrat Socialists and their union footsloggers intend to hold onto it, by hook or by crook, and taxpayers be damned, of course and as always.
Liberal-fascists want you to know your proper role here, which is to stay bent over, stop complaining, be humble, and keep paying up. And for God’s sake, stop electing people like Walker who have seen through their cozy little scam and intend to try to put a stop to it, willya?
