Voter Suppression

One of the main problems in Michigan is the ignorance of large blocks of voters--see Detroit. A group could get a petition on the ballot to have forced unionization of all retirees, let's say. Using the class warfare arguments that are quite successful, this could be voted into the state constitution. Then what? Retirees are forced to pay 'dues' to the unions for nothing. Think it's absurd? Through a deal with the last dem governor in Michigan, privately owned child care services were 'unionized'. Technically becoming state workers, they had millions of dollars stolen and sent to the unions. The Republican governor, Snyder, stopped it when he got in.

The Democrats are supposed to be the Party of the people. What people? Sounds like the Communist Party. Democrats became Socialist a long time ago, and the last thing they want is for the people, to have any say in their government. Saul Alinsky must have a huge smile on his face, to know that our beloved Country is doing, exactly what he predicted. Obama, the biggest Socialist of them all, will do anything within his power, in the next four years, to realize his dream of transforming America, to Socialism. I hope all the so called"AFRICAN AMERICANS:, are proud of their Messiah.

cont.--On the last ballot was an amendment to unionize independent home health care workers, which would have included family members who cared for their relatives. The unions will continue to push for the forced unionization until someting finally passes. Once in the constitution, it will never leave. A change needs to be made.

Michigan voters went to the polls last month to consider six initiatives. The measures had been placed on statewide ballot by private citizens. They had organized and gathered hundreds of thousands of signatures from fellow Michigan citizens, all to earn an up-or-down vote on their respective issues.

All six measures went down to decisive defeat at the polls.

Deservedly so — with the exception of Proposal 5, which would have required a vote of the people or a two-thirds legislative vote in order to raise state taxes. I...
