Skip to comments.A Case For Governor Scott Walker
Posted on 05/30/2012 6:36:59 AM PDT by Kaslin
Name-calling is the cowards way to avoid intelligent discourse. Liberals are notorious for responding to just about anything or anyone with whom they disagree using ad hominem rebuttals to discredit their opponents. Rather than exercising brain cells to engage in scholarly debate, most liberals will leapfrog over the subject at hand and conjure-up a baseless and unrelated charge that makes about as much sense as calling Bill Maher a patriot.
If you are a pro-capitalist, you are a fascist. If you are a Christian, you are an extremist. If you are a Mormon, you are a polygamist. If you reject Obamas liberal policies, you are a racist. And, if you are Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin, you are a liar.
Liberals are so busy trying to get their way they fail to see the yearning for fiscal integrity rumbling across the highways and byways of this great country. They have no idea this real and present dissatisfaction is non-partisan in nature. In this unstable economy, many Americans have lost their appetites for labor unions and the ginormous government budgets they inspire.
Liberals would love to blame this dissatisfaction on those right-wing nut jobs, but they cannot. A good example is what happened in South Florida in March 2011 when Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez, a Republican, was shown the door for doing for doing the opposite of what Walker is attempting to do in Wisconsin. Alvarez raised property taxes by 13 percent to fund public-sector union expenses.
In an attempt to discredit him, liberals label Walker as too extreme. I partially agree with them; Walker is extremely effective. Wisconsin was drowning in debt until the governors fiscally conservative measures erased Wisconsins $3.6 billion deficit. Rather than adopting the Democratic Partys cure-all prescription of raising taxes, Walker lowered them, signing a property tax freeze and lowering school property taxes. Wisconsin is expected to have a budget surplus by 2013.
Governor Walker made tough decisions during tough economic times. Walkers proposal allowing union participation to be voluntary and requiring union workers to contribute to their generous benefit plans sent Wisconsin state senate Democrats reeling literally. Once they realized Walker wasnt going to back down, they absconded to a neighboring state in a childish display of political theatrics.
Once it was enacted, the bill President Obama once described as an assault on unions, became a pathway to independence. Wisconsin schools and local governments were given the freedom to live within their means when they were granted the ability to hire, fire and compensate based upon performance. The nonpartisan group, Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance, reported that the savings from employee benefits allowed districts to reduce costs allowing districts like the Kaukauna school district to control their own destiny and convert a $400,000 deficit into a $1.5 million surplus.
Walkers success in Wisconsin is a threat to labor unions, Progressives and the Democratic Party. According to the New York Post, New York unions are sending resources to oust the union-busting Walker on June 5 and stop the anti-union movement from spreading to other states.
For political zealots, truth is a wonderful thing to twist, spin and slant especially if it means discrediting a sitting governor prior to his recall election. Why debate an issue when you can call your opponent a liar? To no surprise, Walker has been accused of misrepresenting the truth over a variety of issues for the actions hes taken to regain fiscal stability. Nevertheless, the best defense for Walker is the truth, which has manifested itself in Wisconsins economic recovery.
A win for Walker will be a win for the rest of us because his policies could serve as an antidote to the economic contagion spreading across this country. No matter who wins in Wisconsin on June 5th, or in Washington this November, our economy will not improve without making tough choices. Either way, the job requires a strong leader and skillful surgeon, and Governor Scott Walker has proven he is up to the task.
The parasites were eating the host. The host did something.
I Stand With Scott Walker.... and those few like him.
What the Dems desperately want to avoid is any report of WI schools test scores going up, as a direct result of now being able to fire incompetent teachers. Any such documentable results would have a domino effect across the country.
More Walkers! More courage!
The media is billing the June 5 recall as a rematch between Barrett and Walker but, in reality, it is more than that. Now we know for a fact that Walker isn’t a useless politico who will just maintain the status quo. On June 5 we get to re-elect a guy who has proven that he has the guts to actually take actions to fix Wisconsin. What a breath of fresh air!
Wisconsin: Walker’s winning formula aginst debt
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
The media IS billing this as a rematch. It’s the farthest thing FROM that. I read some Freeper’s remark recently that perhaps it’s a good thing we are doing this recall as if we win - it’s an IN YOUR FACE, TAKE THAT you vindictive, greedy teachers, union thugs, union leaders and holier than thou recall folks. Walker IS a breath of fresh air.
I for one am so sick to death of the greedy federal/state workers stealing (yes stealing) my hard earned money to fluff up their own bennies. Sick of it. I’ll pay you a fair wage and give you fair bennies, but NOT, I repeat NOT better than We The People ever dreamed. I will NOT pay to have you retire at 55, then double dip, use unwanted sick pay piled up for the last 30 years.... DO YOU HEAR ME?
THAT is what We The People are tired of and Gov. Scott Walker has come in, said he doesn’t like the lopsided benefits package either and sees so clearly that it is unfair, totally unsustainable and the “forced” continuation of those bennies are now coming to a complete halt.
Woo Hoo. I can’t WAIT to vote on Tuesday. Game ON!
Hope and Pray that the fraud will be overcome by the huge pro-Walker vote.

And if you are an abortion-loving, America-hating, dictator-loving liberal, then you are a child-abusing Marxist.
This election will not be determined by the voters, but by the people who count the votes, and they are not Walker people.
