    Seems like the big bad Union has laid down the law. We'll see what happens now.

    You still have to wonder though... who else is the AFL-CIO going to endorse? Or will they sit this one out and let their members make their own decisions on who to vote for? That, IMO, would be the beginning of the end of the union's hold on its members' thoughts on politics.

    I would welcome the later idea. They force feed members bullshit propaganda all the time. Im currently attempting to get into an Electricians Union in Trenton and im worried that they will single me out and reject my application if i express any views. Yea its against the law but try proving that in court. So im just keeping my mouth shut till im in.
