2. I have not allowed myself, Sir, to look beyond the Union, to see what might lie hidden in the dark..

I have not allowed myself, Sir, to look beyond the Union, to see what might lie hidden in the dark recess behind. I have not cooly weighed the chances of preserving liberty when the bonds that unite us together shall be broken asunder. I have not accustomed myself to hang over the precipice of disunion, to see whether, with my short sight, I can fathom the depth of the abyss below; nor could I regard him as a safe counsellor in the affaairs of this government, whose thoughts should be mainly bent on considering, not how the Union may be best preserved, but how tolerable might be the condition of the people when it should be broken up and destroyed. While the Union lasts, we have high, exciting, gratifiying prospects spread out before us and our children. Beyond that I seek not to penetrate the veil.

- Daniel Webster,
The Second Reply to Hayne
January 26-27, 1830

So when did Union become a pejorative, and why?

5. A union, is a union

We have forgotten the true meaning of the word.

That is sad.

3. I'll keep paying my dues

Voluntarily, to my old local in SE Michigan.
I hope they find out they have gone too far, like wingers in Ohio have.

19. Thanks...coal not dole

Thanks another great song is Coal not dole by chumbawamba although i can't find any videos of it on youtube. But they have entire album of songs from the working class and songs of unions in the 19th century called "English rebel songs"
