The Most Dishonest Words in American Politics
Updated On: Jun 11, 2013

June 11, 2013 | F.Y.I.| (Click image to enlarge.)  "Right to work" is the most dishonest phrase in American political discourse. It sounds like it's defending people's right to earn a living. But as used by its supporters, it means making it impossible for workers to form an effective union, couched in the language of "freedom" and "choice." …The National Right to Work Foundation, the Mackinac Center, the Center for Union Facts, and the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace are all part of the web of groups funded by the five main far-right foundations — the Waltons of Walmart's Walton Family Foundation, the Coors family's Castle Rock Foundation and others who's "intent is to destroy unions."
