Jeebus freakin' kryst. If you want to work without 'union interference', find a non-unionized job. Goddam, boy. It isn't difficult. They're everywhere.<quoted text>
Let's put aside the Constitutional Rights issue for a moment and examine a realistic hypothetical. Assume for the moment that unions become so politically strong and so prevalent that, along with the Boy Messiah's rights-trampling, 99% of all businesses become Closed Shop. Most of those union dues are now going to support the Boy Messiah in one way or another.
What does your "choice" now mean? It means nothing. It makes a distinction with no difference. This is "Spitting on the sidewalk is illegal" type of naivete.
But now back to my rights. If I want to work without union political interference, I can't. Being forced to belong to a union as a hiring stipulation, I am also being forced to support a Socialist Political Party. This is unconstitutional. It is against an individual's rights found in the Bill of Rights regarding the rights of association.
I don't want to be a Catholic. I don't want to belong to the Masons. I don't want to be forced by my boss to join Facebook. I don't want to be a Socialist Party member. I don't want to support the Boy Messiah through my forced membership in the NEA.
Of course, they don't pay shit, but hey - it's your choice.
Free country and all of that.
