What happened to the "Union Influence in Politics" topic?

Even though I initiated it as the debut topic in the Times forums, I'm happy to realize it has been deleted. It died an ugly death long ago, and should have been executed long before it was. I'm curious though... Why? I am unaware of the travesty that occurred that was sufficiently heinous to warrant it's deletion... As compared to the tripe on ALL the other threads that is evident on a daily basis.

Unions, as you keep saying, represent only 13% of the work force. That is not the point when it comes to election finances. Those unions are still able to extort millions of dollars for from their members in the form of dues. The members no longer get what they pay for but the dues money is still a factor in campaigns. Those dues are inserted into the campaigns in the form of campaign contributions. That dues money helps elect the people who run cities like Baltimore, Chicago, Philadelphia and the poster boy of corruption, Ray Nagin of New Orleans. In 2014 the NEA donated $29M to Libs and Dems. Service Employees Inter $23M. AFLCIO 9M. Not chump change.

You all take great stock on the whole union thing ! There was a time when having union backing was necessary but with unions now only owning 13% of the workforce that does'nt have as great an impact as it once did !

DEMOCRAT 2016 HOPEFUL Sen. Bernie Sanders is seeing a surge in support from unions members across the US, a mix of long-time backers and potential voters apparently wary of Hillary Clinton’s relationship with Wall Street and Big Business.

You all never learn do you ??? You just keep on voting for what you think is a good thing at the expense of the WORLD not to mention the countries morals...

Labor leader threatens Hillary: The nation's most powerful labor leader, vowing to defeat President Obama's key trade legislation in the House next month, warned Hillary Clinton of serious political consequences if she fails to take a stand against the Pacific trade pact that the president is campaigning for as a major part of his legacy.
