Putting This In Perspective
The unions spend a lot of money endorsing the candidate that they expect and demand will favor unions at the negotiation table. At negotiations with the politicians is when they collect on the endorsement money they put out at the elections. The unions collect dues every payday from the union members. The more members they have the more money they collect and the more money they have to endorse favorable candidates when elections come around. Public sector unions collect dues from government workers. Government workers are paid from money taken from taxpayers in the form of taxes, fees and fines.
The lobbyists are paid representatives of private companies or organizations who seek to bring about the passage or defeat of legislative bills or to influence their content in favor or benefit of the private companys or organizations. Example: legislation can favor the commercial citrus growers when it declares homeowners are not allowed to plant citrus trees within ten feet of a home foundation; legislation can favor a business sector if it declares a government contract worth more than $500K must be awarded to a company with no less than 50 employees even if a smaller company can do the job for less money. The homeowners with zero lot lines have to purchase their citrus commercially and the high dollar government contracts are awarded to higher cost companies at a higher cost the taxpayers.
Tea Party Patriots are taxpayers and voters who want their government to represent those who elected them to office. The politicians are entrusted with our money and the future of the city and country we reside in. We want the most conservative politicians we can find to be these stewards. The unions are organized and so are the lobbyists. Organized taxpayers are a threat to both of these. With the Tea Party Organization we are sheep to be shorn no more.
We taxpayers have a long hard fight ahead us. We have seen the violence the union leadership uses to coerce the citizens and conservative politicians. We need to protect and defend our elected conservatives at all levels of government and it starts at the local elections coming up.
