Like some of us have been saying the Country is being destroyed by the communists empire that has tremendous control now. There is very little that can be done except for civil war.

Guy is playing with numbers and engaging in subtrefuge. Doesn't mean there isn't a problem but he wants you to believe that people in the federal government who make $100,000 or more per year are union members.


If he wanted to be respected in the morning he should have separated his discussions into federal, state and local ~ then he could avoid mix and match statistical chicanery.

So, should you send off your money to this dude and then read his book? Most likely so you don't do something else with it.

He draws an important problem to the forefront.

Government unions work to build their empire, power and wealth. It’s empire is Federal, state and local government organizations and it’s wealth is union dues from government workers and worker pay and benefits. It’s power is electing favorable politicans, regulation and deals with cooperating entities.

It has no conscience. It is a power machine. It does not have a self regulating stop button. The more power it gets, the less likely voters will have the power and voice to stop it and voters can rarely turn it back to reason.

Government unions pose an inherent conflict of interest and should not exist.
