  •  It's sad but sometimes unions (2+ / 0-)

    endorse the lesser of 2 evils and sometimes there's just not much choice.

    The AFL-CIO is giving Democrats one last chance.  We've supplied union volunteers, unions money, union phone banks, union endorsements, and a lot of support and Democrats have consistently kicked unions in the teeth - the most recent example, having the Democratic Convention in a Right to Work (for less) state.

    Frankly, as a (retired) union member and activist, I'm sick of it and sick of being treated like a sucker.  I'm sick of giving Democrats my time, my money, my hard work and then having them turn around and be Republican-lite.

    Until Democrats learn that they have to stand for something and stop running like The Other Guys Are Worse Party, they're as doomed as the GOP.  People will move past them and on to something better.

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
