I wish I could say that it is correct, but it is such a strawman series of arguments that it actually makes Conservatives look weak.
It doesn’t properly frame the issue and it doesn’t take on the harder issues.
That doesn’t mean it is wrong, it means that as an argumentation tool it actually plays into the Unions’ hands.
This is the second one of these videos I have seen. A friend sent me one with this same couple in it. It was about the liberal’s view of crime and punishment. Whoever does these has the airheaded libs down to a tee.

The arguments the female presents are stupid enough that all liberals can understand and agree with them. And the devastating rebuttals the guy makes are great! Even a few liberals may understand them.
The conservitive would not look so weak if they would just give the unions more money.
Hello. I just wanted to “speak” to a person in another country!
Initially, I thought it was a first, but then I remembered communicating VIA email with a Norwegian or Swede kid a few years ago who had been an exchange student here in my small town, and knew as a classmate one of my sons, and emailed me thinking I was him.
The Old Media is printing bogus polls now claiming that unions are favored by the public. But, if you look at polling from six months ago the real opinion of unions is revealed.
