Once again you seem to be in that Republican State Run Television, Bubble and can not see that Republicans LOST; Not because they were not Conservative and extreme enough, but because they are too extreme and out of touch with the majority of Americans. Until and unless GOP can accept and understand that they must Govern for the Majority and not the top two percent, they will continue to lose.<quoted text>
OK, the unions spent piles of money on Proposal 2, an effort to put a ban on RTW into the MI constitution. Snyder told them not to do this, and that if they took it off that he would not pass RTW.
Proposal 2 failed, play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
The unions are now cash strapped, and cashtrated.
Given that the bill was an appropriation, you have to go to the courts to get rid of it before going to referendum.
Recalls cost a lot of money. The WI unions are broke because of their losing efforts. The unions attempted recalls in 2011 and got one onto the ballot. They won (narrowly) but they were trying for 10 or so.
Being a "Beck rule" is hard to do. While there is a separate political fund, they can spend dues on politics, your lodge leader is lying.
The unions are "cashtrated" there ability to get money is decisively weakened. In Wisconsin you had 100,000 people show up to protest stripping powers from public employees, who make more than the average private sector worker. In Michigan, your side was facing "cashtration" and only got 10,000 people to show up. In the capital of militancy!
RTW is the reason why Mike Pence is the Governor of Indiana, the unions got cashtrated there and were only able to spend enough for Joe Donnelly (a decent conservative D) and got lucky with their media friends saying that Murdock was OK with rape. They had no cash to fund Gregg, and odds are that Pence will be re-elected in 2016.
When you have no money, you typically don't win. One state in the South has a D dominated government, Kentucky, why, it isn't RTW. Without extorted union cash, Steve Beshear could not run all those ads saying his family was "all preachers" but yet is pro-abortion.(He still would have won because the R candidate was a douche, but the Gatewood guy would have probably got double what he got)
GOP cannot take away the rights of the people to Vote or restrict voting rights, the right to keep in office their elected officials, ie.(Emergency Managers), take away collective bargaining rights, lock the People out of their own State Houses and knowingly sign laws that majority of voters do not agree with, and expect to remain in office and expect that the disenfranchised, women, voters, middle class and workers of this Nation will just roll over and take it.
That, Karl is just not gonna forkin happen.
We will remember EVERY November.
