How unAmerican can you get? Claiming that requiring a photo ID disenfrachises voters and makes it harder to vote. How do you go buy your beer and liquor or cigarettes? Can you just walk in a buy them with no ID? I didn't think so. Do you think that there should be a tougher requirement to by alcohol or cigarettes than to choose our representatives in government? Do you think we need to eliminate fraud in voting as much as we need to curb underage purchase of alcohol? I agree with the last sentence of the article. They want to be able to force union membership and cheat at the polls to make sure they have union-friendly politicians. Wake Up America and throw these bums out.

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka is looking forward to some "flexibility" in a second Obama term should the president win tomorrow. Trumka told the Atlantic an Obama re-election will bring back card check, or in other words, the elimination of a secret ballot for union members.

"[...] You'll see it," he says. "That's within the next term." How is that possible, without a Democratic House of Representatives or 60 votes in the Senate? Trumka smiles. His eyes twinkle.

"There's another election between now and then," he says. And the AFL-CIO isn't going anywhere.
