But not for thee.
That is the liberal mantra.
Think I am wrong? Then read this.
Lost in all the screeching over the Citizens United ruling two years ago was the fact that unions have largely been exempt from campaign-finance restrictions on speech. Unions spent a fortune in 2010, far more than the corporations will in this election, no matter what the hysterics think. In fact, according to FEC reports from that election, unions accounted for three of the top five outside groups in spending for the midterms — specifically, public-sector unions AFSCME, SEIU, and the NEA.
Today, the Wall Street Journal reports that even those numbers are deceiving as to the real spending by unions, with or without Citizens United. They calculate that the total amount contributed by unions in elections and in lobbying may be four times larger than what appears in the FEC reports.
Liberals want laws that make it mandatory for workers to be unionized and pay union dues - dues over which they have no control what political statements are made. They want the liberal media like the New York Times and MSNBC to be able to assert their spin and opinion of the news 24 hours a day. Yet they scream like stuck pigs when those on the right want to use their dollars to get their viewpoints and their free speech heard.
Our freedoms continue to be restricted and denied by those on the left who only believe that their principles and values should be heard in the marketplace.
Don't let them win. Speak out against having your basic rights denied. Vote for candidates who will uphold our Constitution and the principles that made our nation great.
Don't depend on others to do it for you.
