They have declared war on you, the American taxpayer. They have found the legal means to reach into your pocket to feather their nests, while costing you and your children and your children’s children trillions. They’ve been doing it for 50 years.
Yesterday, we posted the simplicity of how to begin dismantling the stranglehold government unions have on America.
Step One: Understand the threat…
I want to tell you, Socialists, that I have studied your philosophy; read your works upon economics, and not the meanest of them; studied your standard works, both in English and German—have not only read, but studied them. I have heard your orators and watched the work of your movement the world over. I have kept close watch upon your doctrines for thirty years; have been closely associated with many of you, and know what you think and what you propose. I know, too, what you have up your sleeve. And I want to say that I am entirely at variance with your philosophy. I declare to you, I am not only at variance with your doctrines, but with your philosophy. Economically, you are unsound; socially, you are wrong; industrially, you are an impossibility.
Samuel Gompers, Founder of the American Federation of Labor, 1903
Step Two: Get Out the Vote.
