Statement from the Candidate
In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

How Is A Government Shutdown Different From A Private Company Union Strike?
One would like to know the reasoning for this favoring of government employees, who do get paid after-the-fact, at the expense of private sector union members, who do not get paid while they’re idle. After all, it can reasonably be argued that when government shutdowns are called for budgetary disagreements, the future wage increases of government employees is part of the outcome of the shutdown of their jobs, just the same as the union members’ pay is an outcome of the strike. And sometimes the union members do not get a pay raise at the end of the strike, much less an after-the-fact paycheck; it depends on the negotiations that the union officials and the company management finally agree to.
In matters of private industry labor relations, the union usually makes the decision to strike in order to get more money or better benefits for its members, while in the current government shutdown we’re experiencing, the Democrat leadership made the decision to not give necessary and asked-for money to President Trump so he could build a much-needed wall on our southern border. And since the government employees are largely Democrat party members, they can just blame Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer for causing their wage interruption while the Democrat politicians mope and complain about the latest evil to hit America; Donald Trump and his insistence on protecting the American citizens with a barrier that will block, or at least impede, illegal entrance into the United States.
If Democrat party members, those who are also, as regards the subject of this piece, government employees, are sufficiently upset about being out of work during the Democrat-caused shutdown, they need to start voting Republican in future elections and get rid of the Democrat vermin who are destroying America with their hate-anything-Trump idiotic positions, and who are leaving our borders open to any diseased, child-molesting, criminal element who want to come here and collect Democrat-promised goodies the rest of their lives.
And we need to stop giving government employees back-pay just because they lacked sufficient foresight to vote Republican, which vote may have avoided the current shutdown that under Democrat leadership seems to have been inevitable, given the radical rabble dominant in the Democrat party leadership.
