Paul Slams Santorum for Supporting Freedom to Contract, Associate


Ron Paul's new South Carolina ad:





Starting at about 32 seconds in:


Santorum promised to stand with workers, then sided with big-money union bosses and opposed the Right to Work Act.


That's the National Right to Work Act of 1995, an evil, anti-liberty bill that would have (in mimicry of similar laws in some states since the 1947 Taft-Hartley Act allowed it) forbidden employers to choose to hire exclusively through a union, and required unions to represent non-members as if they were dues-paying members.

There's nothing even remotely libertarian about the dishonestly named "Right to Work" laws, which Paul's son Rand has also promoted since his election to the US Senate. They're exactly as evil as the National Labor Relations Act -- just the flip side of the same "government will decide who must or must not contract with whom, and how" coin.

There's a lot to dislike about Rick Santorum. Shame on Ron Paul for coming out against freedom of association and the right to contract just to pander to the anti-union vote.
