U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) Fights for Right-to-Work

 U.S. Senator Rand Paul was a worthy Presidential candidate.

The problem with political libertarianism, however, limits its appeal to economic issues.

The Presidency must focus on social and foreign policies issues, too.

Well-respected libertarian thinkers like Murray Rothbard never claimed that the libertarian philosophy would answer those problems.

U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky)

And yet, a political candidate must have ready answers for those issues.

Rand Paul's campaign for President may have failed, but his push to get the federal government out of our pocket books and personal lives is still going strong.

He has also been an ardent fighter against Big Labor and their anti-First Amendment abuses.

Check out his latest eblast, in league with the National Right-to-Work Foundation:

Dear Concerned American,

It's vital that you sign your petition immediately.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, Barack Obama and the Big Labor bosses are about to go ballistic.

One of the biggest complaints I still have with Donald Trump is that he has said nothing--absolutely nothing--to stop the abuses of public sector labor unions, and has offered nothing to deal with the encroachments and dangers they pose against the First Amendment.

Collective bargaining abuses are ruining states all over the country. Why should hard-pressed taxpayers continue to foot the bills for bloated pensions and benefits for civil servants?

You see, the National Right to Work Act has been introduced to forever repeal Big Labor's power to force workers to pay union dues just to get or keep a job.

Good! No one should face extortion to get a job. That is wrong!

So the union lobbyists, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and their allies are going to use every trick in the book to bury the National Right to Work Act.

I am glad that someone is still paying attention to Big Labor abuses.

And they want to do it as quietly as possible.

The union kingpins (and their water-carriers in Congress) can't afford the consequences of having their coercive privileges publicly debated and voted on in Congress!

They don't want the American people to know that:

Millions of workers are forced to surrender part of every paycheck to keep their jobs;

This cash funds violent "organizing" drives, provides a limousine lifestyle for union bigwigs and bankrolls radical, tax-and-spend politicians like Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.

Republicans need focus as much as they can on the lavish life-styles of union bosses. They live like kings, while union employees are treated like peons.

Big Labor's power is deadly to millions of small businesses;

Big Labor politicians and Obama-stacked bureaucracies are strangling small businesses with confiscatory taxes, destructive laws and straitjacket regulations.


Forced-unionism exports millions of good jobs overseas;

This is one of the reasons

Productivity-killing work rules, workplace class warfare, slowdowns, "sick-outs" and strikes have all taken their crippling toll, closing the doors of many businesses -- for good.

Once again, the problems with trade in the United States does not just rest on bad trade deals, but overbearing union rules and labor union abuses.

Big Labor thugs often use their forced-unionism power to terrorize workers and communities with violent strikes, where they have gotten away with beatings, arson, extortion -- even murder!

Don't take Rand Paul's words for it. Ask Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.

In the fight for a National Right to Work law, opponents of forced-unionism will face a showdown against the full might of Big Labor.

That's why it's vital that you act at once to ignite massive public support for a National Right to Work bill.

Now is the time to act.

By the time the National Right to Work Act comes up for a vote, every member of Congress must realize the eyes of the American people will be watching.

National opinion polls show that nearly 80% of the American people think it's wrong to force workers to pay union dues under the threat of being fired if they don't pay!

The vast majority of voters oppose the policy, and yet they can't do anything about it. 


And it's critical the National Right to Work Committee, who has led the fight against forced dues for over 50 years, has your help in demonstrating that to Congress.

If the public's attention is fixed on this battle, politicians in Congress will be forced to recognize -- or defy to their peril -- the massive public opposition to compulsory unionism.

Then we'll see who dares to stand with Big Labor . . .

. . . And who stands with freedom and the American people.


Rand Paul, M.D.
U.S. Senator

Final Reflection

Every individual who seeks a job should not have to pay an extortion to a labor union to work.

Labor unions had their place in our economy, but the expansion of learning, innovation, and opportunity has exposed unions as living in the past.

Our economy can grow as we allow individual workers to find gainful employment, and stop shutting out workers who want to move up and profit in their lives.

It's time for Right-to-Work across the country. I hope that more U.S. Senators join with Senator Paul's to make it happen.

Sign the petition for Right-to-Work here.

Share this information far and wide. Let's help U.S. Senator Rand Paul and end forced unionism in the United States, the land of the free.
