1. Lenin: Trade Unions are a School of Communism
The "card-check" debates in the US Congress reminded me of my own experiences with trade unions in the USSR, where organized labor was part of the official establishment and union membership was universal and mandatory. It also reminded me of how that system's seemingly magnanimous goals - fairness, economic equality, and social justice - in real life brought forth a rigged game of wholesale corruption, forced inequality, and grotesque injustice.
Years later, the same Orwellian misnomers are catching up with me in America. One of them is called "Employee Free Choice Act" - a legislation that deprives workers of free choice by replacing private balloting with publicly signed cards in the presence of pushy union organizers. Bad as it is, card check is only a means to a larger end. Proponents of "redistributive justice" would love nothing more than use a forced expansion of labor unions as a vehicle to deliver America straight into a utopian swamp, where they will gain extraordinary powers while the rest of the nation will be doomed to repeat the Soviet scenario of slow death caused by social, economic, and moral decay.
Defeating the card-check bill alone will not affect the ideology that has spawned it - just as curing a symptom of a disease will not remove the infection. It is the ideology, therefore, that we must address and learn to recognize in its various manifestations.
No matter where I worked in the USSR, I was always a union member without so much as a formal notice - starting with the student union in college and then on to whatever union was assigned to the state-run enterprise that hired me...

Union thug bump!
I have heard many people defend the unions by saying that they started out for a good cause.
The problem with any cause, even if considered good is that there are always some one who are smart enough to get rich and powerful from that cause.
Our great thinkers know very well that it is human nature for the average people to want something for nothing and we have always had plenty of these to take advantage of any situation.
From the time the declaration of independence was signed the big push for power was going strong.
The only thing that kept it to a minimum was the constitution, but we can see that has now fell by the way side.
Every institution from the boy scouts of America to the federal government are clamoring for more of some one else,s money for the purpose of more power and more money.
So i do really believe that the socialist scum are using the unions for their purpose just like the unions are using socialism for their purpose.
But if that were not enough to destroy America, just add every little so called non profit organization right up to the state and federal Governments and our destruction is near.
There used to be an old saying ; better call some one closer than God; it was said as a joke but i believe Since this world is controlled by satan it really does fit.
We need to call on God because destruction is near.
