Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

George McGovern backs voter privacy, Obama doesn't

Elections, Legislation, Obama 2008, Politics

Would you like to go to the polls on Nov. 4th and have everyone view your ballot? Not too many people would. The right to a private ballot is important to Americans.

Peer pressure can be a powerful force--especially in unions. There is a bill right now called the Employee Free Choice Act, HR 800. The name would make you think it protected privacy. It doesn't. Senator Barack Obama co-sponsored and voted for it

It is such an affront to workers' rights, that even former Senator George McGovern opposes it. He ran an ad during last night's debate describing why he was against this legislation. (It was one of the highlights of the debate!) From Real Clear Politics,

One of labor's top agenda items for at least the last two years has been the Employee Free Choice Act, which would strip employees from the secret ballot in deciding whether to form a union. The measure was defeated earlier, but will doubtlessly get a second hearing with an Obama administration.

You can see the ad on Gateway Pundit, who concludes, "Too radical for George McGovern?...That's Barack Obama!"
