And, if you're children's teacher happens to be one of the really bad ones, you're stuck with him or her. Unions ceased being beneficial decades ago. They're now a parasite that sucks the life out of union members to serve union leaders. If unions are so great, why force people to unionize? Why not give people a choice like right to work states do? Teachers choose to be teachers knowing the salary and hours.

Admittedly a few bad apples are protected, but this is far better than politicizing our educational system (more than it already is!), and stacking the teaching ranks with lock-step thinking (of whatever political persuasion). This is similar to the idea expressed by Patrick Henry: "I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it".

If you think conservatives have a lock on the 'correct' truth, I'm afraid you are as delusional as a liberal who says the same thing.

If you are one of the folks who voted for Barack Obama in the last election, what did you vote for? More generally, if you voted for any liberal politician, what did you vote for?

Here are three things for starters: (1) no reform of the public schools, (2) no reform of the welfare system, and (3) no reform of labor market institutions that erect barriers between new entrants and good jobs.

How can I be so certain? Because the teachers unions, the welfare bureaucracy and all the other unions form the base of the Democratic Party. At least they are...
