STOP USING UNION DUES FOR POLITICAL PURPOSES

Vice President Gore has proven once again that he is completely out of touch with true American belief and understanding. Paycheck protection gives workers a say if they want their union dues to be used for political purposes. What is wrong with that?

The Democrats want to continue the long-standing practice of using big labor money to fill their campaign coffers. With all the talk of campaign-finance reform, the Democrats want to regulate big corporate money, but not the money they receive from union labor.

We should guarantee the freedom in our U.S. Constitution to apply to individuals in the workplace. Each worker should be able to decide individually if he or she wants to give to a specific candidate or party.

But then again, unions believe that all workers think and follow the same political ideology. This is just another way of restricting the individual's right to choose.
