membership in Big Thieves has declined b/c the A holes who run Big Thieves make it a regular practice to Squirrel the people they represent.
As for influence peddling: Big Thieves donate overwhelmingly to Dem's - and even the R's are Rino's. Whereas the little unions, such as your local cops might belong to donate to local pol's - and it is overwhelmingly the latter who contribute to the R's, whether Rino or not.
I mean, troll, do you actually know anybody in friggin union?
