Very good post. Here is what I see as the difference between the GOP and the Democrats on the union issue.....the GOP believes in the right to work, which the unions absolutely hate. and the Democrats think that every worker in this country should be unionized. If someone wants union representation, fine, go for it, but if they don't, then let them have it their way. I am very much a "states righter", and believe that certain things should be left up to the individual states. If a state's residents support a right to work law, so be it, and if you don't like it, move. I don't really view the GOP as being anti-union, but I do think the Democrats are too pro-union, and get by with lying about the GOP to the unions and their members.
