Some see a difference between large corporations and national level unions. That's nice, and I'll leave it to those folks in how they find a
distinction. Personally I find the idea of Unions using their members paycheck withdrawn dues for political bribery as repugnant to the extreme.
I don't find it any better when KBR, Halliburton or an International Corporation does the same.
Either way, it's taking money from an enormous business structured organization and putting it to influencing politicians at a level so far beyond
the concept of accountability to 'the people' that it's little more than a sick parody to suggest.
The problem here is... Free speech... (sigh) This rights business is a pain in the butt at times, but the alternative is no alternative at all....so I
have to live with Unions and see Corporations as the balance to the system while the other side just has to live with Corporations while seeing
nothing whatever wrong about Major Unions nearly owning national leaders.
The system at least has both extremes to balance each other......as much of a silver lining as that can be.
