Taxpayers should understand that the AFL-CIO, SEIU and other Unions have such hard line contracts with many city and county governments that the Unions have a financial stranglehold on the taxpayers. Under current union contracts, the Unions are telling the city government what they will be paid and no cutbacks for years. If they cannot agree, then there is mandatory third party arbitration. This third party then decides what the union contract will or will not pay. This means that the voters’ rights have been reduced. Instead of the elected representatives making budget decisions, the taxpayers have a third party who is not elected who is actually making government budget decisions. Under the Constitution, this is not really even legal as this has created taxation without representation. The goal of our founding fathers was not to elect a person to go ask the King of England to consider a change in taxes. The purpose of the US Constitution was to have the “People” to elect their representatives who would actually be making those financial decisions. We have lost these rights to Labor Unions. Instead of King Phillip sending in his army to quite the “People” down, the Unions call for their Army to mobilize and surround the elected leaders citing civil unrest and to shut down the “Peoples government”. We also now see a sitting US President openly supporting for the Union Army to pour into one State like WI from other states to intimidate and threaten our elected leaders.
For many years now, union members have damaged private property, burned cars and buildings, and even killed people in order to take control over our government, private industry and the American People. While US Citizens have a right to protest and to free speech, does President Obama or the Federal Government have the right to directly harass, threaten and even shut down a State government? Under Article 10 of the US Constitution, it appears that the Federal Government does not have this right. Therefore, it appears that President Obama is once again violating the US Constitution. We witnessed this when Obama’s operations attacked Arizona, and when he implemented his Federal Healthcare mandates as well.
