This is a problem for conservatives to overcome.
First, unions give almost exclusively to Democrats. Of the remaining entities, some give to Democrats, some to Republicans.
Second, the unions have a government-enforced source of cash. Public unions have taxpayer money to work with, and government (read: Democrats) can always use their power to get them more. Private unions have the dues money from their members, and use if for political contributions, whether the members want them to or not. And in non right-to-work states, government even forces non-members to give the unions their money.
This is a giant machine, and it is being powered with our money, against our will.

As Forrest Gump said, “Unions and Socialism go together like peas and carrots.”
We all know that this is a big LIE! It’s the evil Koch Brothers, I tell you. They are the source of gazillions of dollars that go right into the pockets of BIG oil, BIG defense, BIG religion, BIG banks, and their Republican toadies.
NBC and CBS tell me so, it has to be true.
Harry Reid has to be one of the biggest POS that ever walked the earth. What a disgusting human....
They really haven’t gotten much for their contributions.
We can’t let the progressives and the MSM continue to spout the horsesh!t that the Koch Bros are all the money in politics.
It’s Soros, Steyer, and unions. On THEIR side.
Law enforcement firefighters teachers in cal have benefited greatly
However, unions cut their on throat by supporting D's. They by in large support GOP positions on trade and globalization.
Pouring money into DC and they are still on the brink of extinction.
Let the unions give money to democrats until they're so broke they can't recruit new members. This is a win for us...
Don't mess with perfection.
Which is why their pensions are now in danger.
So what? Let them. We don't want Union Leadership giving us money. Their money is filthy with corrution. Yes to many Union members... that would be great. NO WAY to corrupt union bosses. That group belongs with liars in the Democrat Party - like peas in a pod.
The NRA gives almost exclusively to Republicans.
Do you think democrats should waste their time and money trying to get the NRA to give to Democrats? Boy, I wish we could convince them of that foolishness.
And Obama has richly rewarded them, using so-called “Stimulus” funds to transfer liability for unsustainably generous contractual union benefit awards to the public debt of the U.S.A.
