    6 Big Changes Coming To Public Schools And Politics Thanks To The Supreme Courts Union Smashdown

    The vast majority of unionized U.S. employees work in government-dominated industries. So, far from the old image of unions representing the working man who needed extra protections because of dangerous conditions, today unions represent mostly white-collar people, largely an army of clerks necessitated by government programs and regulations.

    Essentially, unions have functioned as a government growth loop, spending government employees’ money to grow the number of government employees. Whenever they win, taxpayers necessarily lose, because getting more out of taxpayers is how they maintain power. The Janus ruling will put a hole in the tire of this car speeding the nation towards fiscal doom. Here’s why, plus five other important effects.

    1. Democrats Will Lose a Huge Source of Campaign Cash

    Unions function as political operations for politicians who expand government’s sources of power and revenue. They essentially turn government into its own lobbying group, a major conflict of interest that also corrupts government into an antagonist with interests separate and opposing those of the American people rather than our duly sworn servant.

    About 90 percent of union political contributions fund Democrats, and that’s been consistent for decades, according to OpenSecrets.org data compiled from public records. In the 2016 presidential election, unions sent Hillary Clinton $29 million, out of $1.7 billion total they spent in races across the country. They sent President Trump $17,754.

    Unions comprised six of the top ten political spenders from 1989 to 2012. Unions were one out of every five of the top 50 spenders in the 2016 election. The No. 1 national contributors to federal elections from 1989 to 2009 were teachers unions.

    Were tempted to suggest a conspiracy here but its just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply cant conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Moral precepts are constant through the ages and not obedient to circumstances.

    Yeah, letting the pigs have the power to legislate the size and contents of the trough is never a good idea.

    The best reason of all is that they do not get to steal money from teachers and other workers to push their liberal agenda.
