Stop Thief — That's My Vote!

With no apparent hint of hypocrisy, the AFL-CIO is protesting efforts to clean voter rolls of unqualified voters. Union operative Arlene Holt Baker howls, “We have learned painfully that in this third century of our republic, we cannot take our right to vote for granted. We have to defend it. There are people in our political system who think that voting is a privilege reserved for those like themselves, that it is fair and right to confuse and intimidate people into not voting.”

Indeed the right to vote and a secret ballot is critical to a free society. Too bad Ms. Holt Baker and other Big Labor bosses are spending hundreds of millions of dollars taking that right away from millions of working Americans by trying to enact the Card Check Scam.
