Tomorrow is D-Day. What happens tomorrow may change the course of politics for a generation and it could have incredible national implications.
What is going on tomorrow and why is it so important?
Tomorrow is the Wisconsin Recall vote. The hard left is trying to recall Governor Scott Walker and Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch because Walker and the Republicans have taken apart the mechanism the left has used to siphon tax dollars to fund their radical activities.
From the Hill:
Wisconsin voters are set to go to the polls on Tuesday to decide whether Gov. Scott Walker (R) will stay in office, an election that could have implications far beyond the state and could prove to be a key test of union power ahead of the November presidential election.
Walker himself became a conservative icon after confronting labor last year by pushing through legislation that limited public workers’ collective bargaining rights, leading to the recall.
Major unions and Tea Party groups have plowed substantial funds into the recall election. Politicians on the national scene have journeyed to the state to campaign with their chosen candidates.
But the stakes are particularly high for labor groups, which have invested heavily in the fight to unseat Walker and have expressed concerns that their traditional Democratic allies haven’t been as committed.
Asked on Fox News Sunday whether a Walker victory meant Wisconsin swings to Romney in the fall, Ed Gillespie, a senior adviser to the presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s campaign, said he couldn’t say, but that more states in the region are moving towards the GOP.
“There is something going on in Wisconsin and all across the Great Lakes where it is moving away from liberal Democratic policies and for more reform-oriented Republican policies,” Gillespie said.
Walker is only the third governor to face a recall election in American history. Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R), who saw anti-collective bargaining rights legislation he backed overturned in a citizens’ referendum last year, called a potential Walker win “amazing.”
“I think Walker is probably going to win. I mean I think — it's really amazing. He has done a fantastic job. And I think he is going to win this,” Kasich said on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday.
Democrats have said they must win Tuesday so others don’t follow Walker’s example.
“It will embolden other Tea Party types to continue the work that he’s already started,” said Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.). “Of course it will embolden them. That’s why we are doubling down on our resolve to beat back this national Tea Party effort.”
Wisconsin is the battle of our lifetimes. It will decide the future of the nation. This battle pits real Americans against far left radicals.
If you know anyone in Wisconsin, call them and ask them to vote for Walker and Kleefisch.
Tomorrow real Americans will prevail for our nation and for our children and grandchildren.
Yes they are.
Yep, I agree. This is the fork in the road.
I lived as a bachelor for a decade or so in my forties. Had to do my own baking. Mouth watering apple pies, 9 inch. Would have made them larger but no pan.
The left are poor bakers. They try to divide a 5 inch pie instead of a 15 inch pie. Result, very small pieces.
If Walker doesn't win tomorrow, we'll hear Ross Perot's sucking sound made by business leaving Wisconsin.
Would you start a business with the game stacked against you?
It wasn't a lot, but I sent Walker money for his retention efforts and campaign. I hope that many on TPN did so also. I am retired and now on a fixed income, so my political contributions are far less than when I was working. Never-the-less, I do make them and do so very carefully, picking and choosing who, what, where, and when it will do the most good. In this case, I gave because I also see this as a critical battle in a most critical election year.
What I fear most is not as to whether Walker can win in a fair election, but whether he can defeat the fraud that the "demoncats" will undoubtedly perpetrate at the polls. In this memorial day season it is fitting that the dead will vote, as well as the invisible, unborn, and those who steal identity and use it as their own. I hope the Republicans are prepared for the law suits that will need to come about over voter fraud, intimidation, and other "demoncat" specials.
Obama's DOJ is already trying to insure voter fraud in Florida by halting any measures that tend to help prevent it. http://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2012/06/01/doj_to_florida...

I would like to remind every Tea Party Patriot that like the Republican Party from whence most of us came, we are a fractured group and passionately so.
I would also like to remind every Tea Party Patriot that those who oppose us take each and every opportunity to leverage that fact against us. It is the Liberals that are the first to raise the question: "Is this candidate conservative enough?" - just to initiate the inevitable blood letting that will follow.
We The People of these United States did not arrive at this precipice of oblivion in a journey of only the past three and a half years.
For more than a half century we have been so involved in our own worlds of trying to raise a family and trying to better ourselves and a future for our children that we have knowingly and willingly turned a blind eye to all things political.
Our journey towards oblivion has not been a short one and our return trip - if we are in fact able to make such a journey - will not be completed by a single election - standard or recall.
If there is any hope for a future for this nation we must be willing to lay aside our petty differences and fight with all our might for every inch of gained ground - at what ever the personal cost.
I have always felt that my "Dream Team" was Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain.
That dream is no more and we are now faced with the reality that Mitt Romney will be the GOP candidate.
I went to the opening of the Romney campaign office here in Lovely Las Vegas and I attended his most recent rally when he was here last week - numbers count.
I will do what ever I must, no matter how distasteful that might be, to insure that Mr. Obama is permanently retired from public office for to do otherwise is to throw dead flowers on the coffin of this nation.
There are certain PRINCIPLES that UNITE us all...Smaller Government, Fiscal Responsibility, Personal Responsibility. Then there are those ISSUES that will always DIVIDE us.
We must unite around those principles that we all agree upon and leave the neighbor-to-neighbor blood letting and self serving self righteousness until after we get this nation turned back onto the path envisioned by our forefathers.

Darwin, I am in complete agreement. My dream ticket was nearly the same as yours. The points you've eloquently and wisely made will unite a rational set of minds. Others will follow who are not there yet, but will instinctively recognize the truth.
