Patriot Convention


This is the one election that in all of our history is a fork in the road that we had better choose wisely.

This next president will appoint several Supreme Court justices.

That alone should be enough to make everyone sit up and take notice.

If HRC is allowed to stack that Supreme Court, the country is gone.

It is that serious. There is no turning back, none.

We will not have the luxury to say, we can hang for another 4 years.

The communist planks are all in place…

...that ball is at the finish line and just needs that last punt over the goal posts and it is game over.

That one issue will have ramifications for decades.

Your children and grandkids will experience the full weight of that one issue alone.

Forced Union Membership Means Free Speech

Conservative Hideout 2.0

OK kids, it’s time to put on your suspension of disbelief, and hold on to your chairs, because this is going to be one crazy ride. It seems that a union is suing to overturn Indiana’s Right to Work Law. Their reasoning is typical liberal, and therefore defies all logic. Here is more from CNBC…

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana’s new right-to-work law should be struck down because it infringes upon unions’ free speech rights by depriving them of the dues that fund their political speech, attorneys for a union challenging the law contend, citing the U.S. Supreme Court’s so-called Citizens United ruling that eased restrictions on corporate campaign spending.

Attorneys for the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150 argue in a court brief that Indiana’s new law, which allows workers to not pay union dues even if a union bargains on their behalf, interferes with the union’s free speech rights and “impinges on this fundamental right of union membership.”

Where in the you-know-what do we begin to take this one apart? Obviously, this is typical leftist, “re-brand slavery as freedom” effort. Essentially, what they are saying is that to grant the “right” to union membership, people must be forced to join them. Because, as well all know, exercising rights means depriving everyone else of theirs. Then, the union’s “freedom of speech” requires that they confiscate funds from the members, that, in turn, must be forced into joining. And all of this is OK, because “this is what democracy looks like,” right?
