FW: URGENT: Ad Campaign Hits Waffling Senators on Big Labor Power Grab

August 5, 2009

Dear Marion:

Imagine Barack Obama, pen in hand, smiling from ear-to-ear for his buddies in the national media as he signs the union bosses’ Card Check Forced Unionism Bill into law.

SEIU President Andy Stern, Teamster Boss Jimmy Hoffa, and AFL-CIO czar John Sweeney would all be huddled around . . .

. . . champing at the bit to unleash their new-found powers on millions of American workers and small businesses.

I hate to put it so bluntly, but the scenario I just described to you is exactly what you and I are going to see unless we continue turning up the heat on the U.S. Senate now -- before it’s too late.

That’s why it’s vital you act TODAY.

First, by signing the special Mailgram Authorization Form <> I’ve made up for you.

Then, please consider helping the National Right to Work Committee pay for our nationwide media blitz with a special contribution today.

As you’ll see, the Mailgram Authorization Form <> urges your Senators to VOTE AGAINST the “Card Check” Bill or any other similar legislation.

The fact is, with 60 Democrats now in the U.S. Senate, Big Labor’s allies in Congress have enough votes to pass virtually ANYTHING the union bosses can dream up -- if they all vote together.

And “Card Check” and other similar union boss power grabs are right at the top of their agenda.

You see, should “Card Check” pass, union organizers could intimidate workers one-on-one (or three-on-one) into signing so-called “union authorization cards” -- and BINGO, an entire company would be unionized with no vote.

Under this scheme, union militants would know which workers have signed cards and which ones haven’t, so independent-minded workers will stick out like sore thumbs.

And with well over 90,000 recorded instances of union violence on police blotters across the nation just since 1975, you and I both know union organizers will stop at nothing to get a signature.

That’s why your IMMEDIATE help <> is so vital!

You see, to make matters worse, Big Labor had another ticking time bomb inserted into this already dangerous bill.

If the union bosses can drag out negotiations with an employer past 90 days by making outrageous demands, Barack Obama’s handpicked “arbiters” will come in and impose the union bosses’ terms and conditions on the workers!

So you see, not only does Big Labor want to strip workers of the right to a secret ballot, they also want to strip workers of the right to vote on their own contracts as well!

Why are the union bosses so afraid of workers voting in secret, free from intimidation and coercion anyway?

Of course, I’d like to be able to tell you that such an outrageous and economically destructive power grab has no chance of passing in Washington, DC.

Especially now.

Especially considering the volatile stock market, the steady trickle of lost jobs, and general uncertainty plaguing our economy.

But the truth is, I can’t say that.

And as much as it pains me to say it, “Card Check” or a similar bill will pass unless you and I defeat it.

And if we don’t?

Well, I’m afraid America’s fragile economy could end up nose-diving off a cliff.

That’s why it’s vital you sign the Mailgram Authorization Form <> IMMEDIATELY!

And why I’ve prepared an all-out media blitz to help stop Big Labor’s radical scheme.

Right now, we’re already running TV ads in Virginia (you can watch this ad by clicking HERE <> ) and have plans to run them across the country in the coming weeks, if we have the necessary funds.

So today, I’m counting on your help <> now like never before.

I’m sure it goes without saying such a massive program isn’t cheap, but you and I don’t have a choice.

You see, the Big Labor bosses aren’t going away without a massive fight.

In fact, to make doubly sure they get their way, the union bosses have another trick up their sleeves that I haven’t yet mentioned!

That’s a so-called “Plan B” version of the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill that’s supposedly harmless if you believe the laughable stories coming from Big Labor’s mouthpieces in the national media.

But don’t be fooled.

This so-called “Plan B” version is every bit as damaging to American workers, jobs and our fragile economy.

Plain and simple, this is nothing more than a ploy by Big Labor to trick fence-riding Senators into caving in and jumping on board.

In fact, quoted in the People’s Weekly World -- an overtly COMMUNIST publication -- the AFL-CIO’s Director of Legislation said there would be NO CHANGES “that would undermine the basic thrust of the bill.”

Of course, that’s not what they’re saying for “public consumption.”

But you and I know better.

The good news is, I’m confident the media blitz we’ve prepared -- newspaper, radio and hard-hitting TV ads -- could be what’s needed to turn the tide.

As it stands now, I can run these ads for a short period of time, but it won’t be long enough to make the kind of impact that’s necessary to win.

To win, we need to keep these ads on the air.

We need to expand this program to ALL our targeted states.

That’s why I’m calling on you today to sign the Mailgram Authorization Form <> and, hopefully, make a generous contribution <> , as well.

If we’re going to stop “Card Check” -- in whatever form -- from becoming the law of the land, we must have the resources to fight back -- and fight back NOW!

The union bosses have virtually unlimited funds to use to try and sell their forced-unionism agenda to the American people and browbeat Congress into toeing the Big Labor line.

And with potentially billions more at stake should “Card Check” pass, they’re not holding anything back.

That’s why your Committee must have the funds to counter Big Labor’s propaganda with a full-scale media blitz.

So won’t you please agree to sign the Mailgram Authorization Form <> I told you about and make a generous contribution <> of $25, $50, $100 or $250 today?

I know that times are rough, and this is all very expensive.

But let me assure you it’s nowhere near the price we’ll pay if “Card Check” becomes the law of the land.

Please sign the Mailgram Authorization Form <> I told you about right away.

And if you can, please also make a generous contribution of $25, $50, $100 or $250 to help pay for the National Right to Work Committee’s all out Media Blitz!

P.S. Today, the Democrats have 60 votes in the U.S. Senate --enough to break a filibuster if they all vote together.

And believe me, the union bosses would love nothing more than to use that power to ram “Card Check” or a similar Bill into law.

That’s why it’s vital you sign the special Mailgram Authorization Form <> I’ve had made up for you.

And if you can, please agree to make a generous contribution <> of $25, $50, $100 or $250 to help fund the National Right to Work Committee’s all-out media blitz!
