Short video: Yes, it is a Mitt Romney approved video, but the truth of the story told by the owner of St. Louis Paving Company is a valid one irrespective of political party!
The truth is there whether you have Democrat, Republican, Green, Constitution or Libertarian party affiliations. Organized labor has become the party of thugs and bullies.
Remember the violent and disgusting demonstrations over Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker doing away with collective bargaining for Teachers unions? The results are in. Some school districts went from a $400,000 deficit to a $1,500,000 surplus as a result. They are even hiring new teachers, not firing like the Liberals said would happen. Why? Read more »
