Why Card Check Is Unconstitutional

by David B. Rivkin Jr. and Lee A. Casey - March 30th, 2009 - Wall Street Journal

The Employee Free Choice Act of 2009 -- otherwise known as "card check" -- is organized labor's dream. As a practical matter, this legislation, pursued by both the Obama administration and the Democratic Congress, would do away with the secret ballot in the unionization process. Although card check's advocates and critics have spilled much ink arguing about the bill's fundamental fairness to labor and management, so far the debate has not focused on the other compelling interest at stake: the constitutionally protected right of employees to keep their opinions on controversial issues like unionization to themselves.

What frightens me is that you cannot trust the current liberal and corrupt judges of our nation's courts to believe in a constitutional right to freedom. They are quite sure that anyone has a right to be a pervert and no parent has the right to protect their children from these perverts. However they seem to be rather reticent to interpret constitutional protections if they help individual liberty.
