As soon as you realize that your ideas are foreign to the groups you are pushing - the unions - the sooner you will quit taking this issue so personally. Unions do not see a place in society for non-union jobs. What your individual lodge wants has absolutely nothing to do with the union as a whole. As soon as your union buddies quit pouring millions and millions of dollars into elections to elect Democrats, the rest of us conservatives might see your point of view. Knock the chip off your shoulder.
