    And according to the link, the unions aren't shy about which party they prefer...most contribute >90% of their money to the side that wants to BAN GUNS (the DEMOCRATS).


    If you're providing money to a union in any shape or form, click the link above and see where the political portion of your money goes - you're helping maintain Democrats in office and ban guns - no doubt about it.

    No and it is a shame that so many Union Members and there families vote like sheep as they are told by the union. Yes there are exceptions but not enough.

    Man in the street Democrat, or Man in the street Republican.

    Neither one is being served by their party or elected representatives. Acquiring muscle is the only way you can get anything done. Unfortunately most of the uscle is in the hands of greedheads or self serving power brokers.

    The country has been polarized into the 2 concentrations of power, and the sheep don't think there is any other way.

    Too bad.
