    Proposition Me, Why Doncha? - By Sarah Phelan, Metro Santa Cruz, CA
    'Prop. 75 won't protect union members,' Aronson continues, 'since they already have the right not to contribute to union politics or to opt out at any time. So no one is being coerced at a basic level. Every union is a democratic organization. I've never heard of any union leaders who are smoking cigars in a backroom and making all the decisions. We're the ones who vote. Sometimes you find yourself in the minority, sometimes in the majority. And the more involved you are, the more say you have.'
