43. If Trump and the Greedy Old Party stay in power

 

along with their judicial rubber stamps there might not even BE unions in a few years.

All it takes is a 5-4 decision to impose Right To Work nationwide. From there it's a simple matter of finding a pretext, no matter how flimsy, to shut them down either legislatively or through the courts. Picture William Barr wielding RICO to break the backs of organized labor.

At least with a Dem administration and a Dem AG, labor has a fighting chance. If we take just enough seats to control the Senate that puts judicial confirmations back in our hands which allows us to temper the fascist assault on our very democracy.

Unfortunately that takes money. Lots and lots of money. I want the Dem nominee to build the biggest war chest he or she can and if that means taking PAC money or playing nice with corporate America then so be it because my goal is to get Trump and the Greedy Old Party OUT. Then we can work on greater labor protections and better funding for things like mental health care or work on blunting Citizen's United.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
