    Did Reagan run as a Democrat?

  4. No. But the last couple of decades it's been all Democrats.
    I really don't care who they endorse, it doesn't mean anything.

    I disagree.

    We're one of the biggest unions in North America. If we "sat this one out", it'd be a shot across the bow to the party of corporate neoliberals that one of their core constituencies and financiers is sick of their bull:censored2:.
     
  8. And a very tiny percentage if the voting population. It's not like it was 30-40 years ago.

    Sitting out really is a Trump endorsement. Clever too.

    No way they will sit this one out. They will be in the bag for Hillary hoping to buy some favors. Unfortunately she costs too much and won't stay bought.
     
  11. That's why I no longer donate to the D.R.I.V.E.

    Our local met with Bernie. Not Hillary. When they came to Albany. They are also pushing a bill sponsored by Sanders. For pension reform. Which will never happen.. Still will never vote for a democrat.

    OK, I'll play. How much and to whom was this dues money giveaway bequeathed, or was this just another dream of yours?

    You don't think H and H support politicians with their own money, do you?

    It did nothing for us, and much less for PATCO.

    Who paid the out of service "lost wages" for the local members who were at the gates weekly, donned in Obama shirts and buttons, on the guise of trying get people registered to vote?
