At the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Dr. James McHenry, a Maryland delegate, followed Benjamin Franklin from Independence Hall. He recorded a question asked by a lady, directed at Dr. Franklin.

The lady asked, "Well Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?"

"A republic," replied Dr. Franklin, "if you can keep it."

Who are Obama's Shock Troops (union thugs)?

Who are the union thugs and why are they slavishly following the commands of senior members of the new ObamaNation?

We know that the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now ACORN exists to serve the Chief Executive so their motivation is clear - they get $4 billion directly from the stimulus package that was designed to pay-off Obama supporters rather than do much for the economy. We also know that they'll be out there counting people for the census, being paid by your tax dollars.

Moving on there is the now infamous SEIU (Service Employees International Union) The picture of some of their members (above) is from their website. Funny how they picked up the Obama call for "change". HR 3200, "America's Affordable Health Care" offers FREE MEDICAL CARE to retired union workers. It's nice of the legislature to offer one protected class of Americans healthcare that everyone else can pay for.

Using organized labor to do politician's dirty work is nothing new in Chicago. GATEWAY PUNDIT covers this in his blog (CLICK HERE).

The Confederate Yankee blog discusses actions by the State Employee's Association (Union) of North Carolina against peaceful citizens at a town hall meeting (CLICK HERE).

Brutally Honest has a great blog (CLICK HERE) discussing union contributions to the Obama Campaign and other Obama interests.

It all makes sense when you follow the money.
