About the Author
David Bego's expertise to write this book stems from his actual firsthand experience while waging war with Andy Stern and the SEIU from late 2006 through the present day. Unlike other corporate executives, who either compromise their core values and cave in to union demands or simply talk about what it would be like to fight back against one of the most powerful unions in existence today, the author has lived the experience while under attack from Stern and his union thugs. For more than 60 months and counting, he has found the courage to stand up for what he believes, at all costs, protecting his employees’ and all Americans’ freedom to vote in a “secret ballot” election, absent from coercion. Despite damage to his personal and corporate reputations, the author has managed thus far to survive the SEIU onslaught and emerge with his integrity in tack. Truly the voice and face of the opposition to the Employees Free Choice Act a.k.a. Card Check, the author has enhanced his credentials through meetings with Congressional leadership or their aides, including Senators Richard Lugar (R-IN), Evan Bayh (D-IN), Harry Reid (D-NV), Dan Coats (R-IN) and Arlen Spector (D-PA), and State Representatives Mike Pence (R-IN), Todd Rokita (R-IN), Marlin Stutzman (R-IN) and Todd Young (R-IN). Bego was also instrumental in the efforts of Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, Speaker Brian Bosma, Senator Pro-Tem David Long and Congressman Jerry Torr to make Indiana the 23rd Right-to-Work (RTW) state. Indiana RTW was passed and signed into law February 1, 2012. Additionally, the author has been a featured speaker to groups such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Associated Builders and Contractors, Private Duty Nurses Association, Libertarian Party of Indian State Convention, Rotary Clubs, Rainmakers, West Palm Beach Florida Republican Club and Tea Party, Madison County Indiana Tea Party, Andrews Academy, Union Conservatives Lansing Michigan, and others across the country. In early 2009, the author made his sentiments known on up the Hill with a letter to every member of Congress outlining factors for consideration and opposition to the Employee Free Choice Act/Card Check. Represented by the New York public relations firm SandyPR, the author intends to broaden his media exposure by speaking out against regulations and legislation he believes are a direct threat to entrepreneurship, free enterprise, capitalism and, most importantly, freedom of choice.

We are a group of SEIU Local 1000 Members and State of California Employees who live and see everyday what you have overcome and described so well in both books:
a- The Devil At My Doorstep
b- The Devil At Our Doorstep
The story is told by a Manager who is `hands on' and a CEO who cares about his employees, and who perfectly understands both sides and what it takes to regain the White House:
a- the Higher echelons of the Republican Party and their disconnect with minorities, moderates, and liberals.
b- the mentality, simplistic state of mind, and financial situation of the people who are working for his Company; who are the symbol of the majority of Labor Unions Members and who outnumber the Higher echelons.
To beat Obama you need the volume, not just the ideas and intellects.
David, your book, in its easy to understand language, expresses your total comprehension of the `colossal special interest group the labor unions have become' and their threat to the American Dream, Free Market, and Free Choice. Again you expressed and explained very clearly what the Labor Unions have become, but sadly many fail to recognize:
a- a Business.
b- a threat to FREE Speech and FREE Market camouflaged under:
EFCA (employee free choice act)
As SEIU Members we can attest to your description of the SEIU Officers, their dirty and deceiving tactics. We live and see that every day in the State Offices where the `union reps' march in /out as they please, on State time, and paid by hard working tax payers. They have no notion what it takes to meet payroll.
We like what you wrote because we know it is the truth and couldn't be described any better. To conclude we would like to implement one of your ideas in our fight against what the Labor Unions have become today:
No. 7 of the "Ten-Point Plan to Battle Big Labor":
* "Reach out to minorities, moderates, and independent voters and encourage them to fairly consider union tactics as they deliberate who to elect for their political leader"
As you very well described and explained in simple words: we need to reach out to minorities and independent to make a difference, and to save our Free Market and Free Speech.
David, we believe in your fight, we want to help and make a difference. Your book is also a guidance to our fight for the same cause.
Private-sector unions used to understand that if you bankrupt the company that you work for, you won't have a job for long. Greedy, public-sector unions just don't care. Why should they when they collude with politicians who are more than willing to use them to get elected and then reward them once they are in office?
Mr. Bego tells us his horrific story of union attempts to infiltrate the business that he built from scratch, with his own money and sweat. He is the American icon of equal opportunity. The best part of his story is that he wins!
If you are in a union, think about this: your union is holding you back. If you work harder than the next guy, are you rewarded for it? If the guy next to you is a slacker, should he get paid the same as you do? What are the salaries of your union leadership? Are you making more than your counterparts in non-union shops? Is your union donating your dues to the same guy you want to vote for? AND, if you work for a public-sector union, do you you really want to be part of a greedy gang that bankrupts your state or town, or the USA?
If you own a business, have a job, or even just pay taxes: READ this book and then VOTE.

Lots of repetition and self congratulation.
