Democrats are quick to hail the blessings of majority rule, so long as they are the majority. But, the time-honored term “loyal opposition” has no meaning in Democratic ranks today, and the sorry, embarrassing situations in Wisconsin and Indianapolis are proof enough of that. B. Patrick Bauer, Democratic Minority Leader in the Indiana House, made an especially revealing comment during a conference call he held while in hiding at a Comfort Suites in Urbana, Illinois. “It’s never been seen before in this state,” Bauer said. “You’ve never seen this kind of class war.”
Class war? Not really. All of the evidence shows that transforming Indiana from a forced-unionism state to a right to work state will only increase employment, increase income and bring in more business. The only “class” that gets hurt when unions can no longer compel workers to join them and surrender a portion of their pay is the ruling class that has a donkey as its symbol. If Indiana becomes a right to work state, there are a lot of unemployed steelworkers in the northwest portion of the state who will find renewed employment, but they won’t have to indirectly – and unwittingly – funnel a portion of their wages to support the Democratic party, courtesy of their union. That’s the sort of “class war” loss that politicians like B. Patrick Bauer cannot abide.
Democrats are desperate, with good reason. Losses in Wisconsin and Indiana would be disastrous, not only because it would mean that both states would be reliably red for quite some time, but because more dominoes would be sure to fall. With the stakes so high, the rhetoric and tactics on the left are sure to be as desperate and desperately wild as ever.
