Republicans Against Teachers’ Unions? Quite Hypocritical.

Recently, I had a conversation with a self-proclaimed conservative Republican about teachers’ unions and his stance against them. His overarching idea against these unions was he didn’t want his money (tax dollars) funding organizations that countered his political beliefs. His argument wasn’t completely against unions as a concept, just in cases of the publicly funded ones, e.g. teachers’ unions. He also made cases about how individuals should “stand on their own merit” when it came to wages and promotions; about how workplace safety was now protected under OSHA and therefore unions were now obsolete.

This is all, of course, complete balderdash filled with hypocrisy and conservative rhetoric.  Let me explain how deep this rabbit-hole fallacy goes.

Differences Between Democrats and Republicans

I came across this article written by Jeff at Addicting Info website. This list of fifteen key differences between the two parties is simple and straight forward. Shockingly, the list is absolutely true all while being brutally honest without attempting to be condescending to either party. If more people understood these key differences our country would be in much better shape.
 
Instead of trying to re-write, re-author or write an article around such a great list, I thought it better to present and share his list as-is and give full credit to Jeff at addictinginfo.org. Without further ado...
 
Fifteen Differences Between Democrats and Republicans:
 
"Republicans fear that the government has too much control over corporations.
Democrats fear that corporations have too much control over our government.
 
Democrats believe it benefits all of us to help the weakest and the poorest among us.
Republicans believe it benefits all of us to help the wealthiest and most powerful among us.

Get to Know Adam Kinzinger by his Voting Record

Adam Kinzinger, a freshman Republican Tea-Party Congressman in the Illinois 16th District, had been swept in office on the wave of the Tea-Party craze. Taken under the wing of Eric Cantor (VA-7) and anointed a “Young Gun” of the Republican Party.  So, who is this man being groomed as a long-term playmaker for the GOP? Some analysts have calculated Kinzinger to have only a ninth-grade speaking level, but I’m more concerned with getting to know him by what he has done for his constituents from his voting record.
