Skip to comments.(vanity) Socialists claim the power to break contracts, next GOP admin, can break union contracts?

Something to contemplate:
Assuming Republicans eventually stop acting like wimps, and win an election again - are socialists in their usual megalomanic over-reach, so stepping in it?
For that matter, all union contracts in America?
Especially say, if American businesses are in danger, due to costly union expenses and stupid rules...
Sorry, two wrongs don’t make a right.
You pretty much explained, why republicans keep losing.
In politics, undoing the damage the enemy daily inflicts upon this great nation, could not be more right.
If not now. When?
The Republicans keep losing because they act like Democrats.
Your using an example of the Democrats ignoring the rule of law and the Constitution to justify the Republicans ignoring the rule of law and the Constitution.
Sorry, that makes you not better than the Democrats IMO.
I know you honestly believe that. Strongly and rightly.
But it’s why Republicans are losing!
This ain’t beanbag.
America herself is at risk. If not now, When?
America won’t be saved by throwing away what made it great, just so a political party can stay in power. If the GOP became openly anti-Constitution like the Dems, there’d be no point in having a GOP in the first place, and conservatives should treat them as an enemy as well.
The party is not what matters, the principles this country was founded on matters. Until you get that in your head you are just as bad as the leftists.
Sorry. I think maybe I should have worded that differently.
It goes (far) beyond the GOP. The left has been methodically dismantling the very strengths and rights, which along with the sacrifices of many brave souls the last couple hundred years, made America great. They’ve been tearing America down now, for several decades.
Always that process continues. In our schools. The media. Bureaucracy. And ... union halls.
That process is never directly fought by those who should be on the side of protecting America - it is only resisted. Delayed. But not even delayed.
Merely slowed down.
The enemy doesn’t care if it is slowed down - it continues to tear down America. Brick by brick.
And we don’t fight back! Eventually that means, people stop voting for Republicans, because they don’t *do* anything.
They just go along.
Yeah, that’s because they are corrupted by power.
“Doing something” isn’t the answer in this case. “Doing something, anything” has led us to the dilemma we are in now.
We need to do the right thing. When Republican politicians run roughshod over our Constitutional protections, they ignore the fact they are one failed election campaign from giving the same power and moral license to the Democrats.
Abrogating contracts is not the way. Removing the protections on unions via legislation is. UNfortunately, we can’t trust the GOP to do the right thing anymore, because they had their chance and blew it.
IMO, the GOP needs to spend more time in the wilderness. They haven’t learned their lesson yet. They are expecting voters to come running to them in 2010 and then they will go back to acting like Democrats.
That’s why I am probably going to vote 3rd party in ‘10.
Somehow I find myself agreeing with you, even while completely disagreeing with you. :)
One thing is for sure.
The GOP is broken. Near hopeless at this point. They lack spine, and some other parts.
My momma would sometimes pitch a fit, hold me by the ear and switch by bare legs with a thin reed until they nearly bled. All the while she was screaming I should not hit my little sister.
Momma was right, despite the seeming paradox.
We are past the point nationally.
Republicans should not break contracts between private employers and unions. If the contracts are too onerous, the companies will go bankrupt. What the government should not do is step in to subsidize companies with uncompetitive labor agreements, as it is doing with General Motors.
No one even mentions the car manufacturers anymore and all the money they got, and the fact that it was unsustainable union contracts that eventually made them go broke.
All this talk about AIG bonuses is ridiculous.
Uh-oh. We have a militia member in our midst!!!!
What “next GOP admin?”
Our current masters are intent on there being no “next admin” at all.
They may be right.
